Thank you for looking!
Now that I have all of my lumber to start my projects, I need to get my garage in order and put together the shop in the best possible layout. But the first order of business is getting my vintage craftsman jointer in working condition. Oh as a heads up I very rarely and I do mean rarely buy anything tools new. Just a waste of money that can be spent on wood and more tools, but I digress. I have a Craftsman/King Sealey 101.03582 6” jointer with a fixed infeed table and adjustable outfee...
It was a beautiful fall day and I had the shop opened up with a fan running behind me and after putting a new belt on the sander I just had to give it a test run. I picked up a 2×4 out of the scrap bin about 16 inch’s long, fired up the sander and laid the board carefully in place. Well the first thing I noticed was a cloud of dust coming off the end of that new belt, being new it was really cutting off some wood! As I leaned over a bit to have a better look I noticed a pile of...
So today marks the two month date since I started this remodel. I scheduled for three months, but orders are starting to pile up and the plane till might have to get left off until I can get to it as well as the inside of the tool cabinet. So far so good, but there is still much to do. I got the base put together today and thee top leveled and mortised in place. I put a coat of finish on the base before I stuck it together. ...
My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1684: You Don't Got a Thing if you Ain't Got That BLING!
You knew I was going to do it . . . It was just a matter of time. You knew that I wouldn't be able to resist adding some BLING to my new SLD521 Damask Heart Ornaments and SLD522 Heart and Soul Candle Tray.But how could I resist? The rhinestones I get from Rhinestone Canada are so PRETTY and they are so EASY to apply. And you can't deny that they make them look better, can you??So I got out my heat wand and rhinestones and went to work . . .All I had to do was place th...
Working on my new album:
Lids were sanded down, and adjusted a bit. One of these days, I’ll learn how to make perfectly fitting lids…. Hinges had an issue as well, couple screws decided to come out the other side…hate when that happens. Ground the tips of the screws down, will replace when the shorter ones arrive. End of the box looked a bit too plain…dug up some thin Walnut scrap and sawed some 1” wide strips… Once I figured out how to cut the angles…nails and gl...
Added more wall track during a lunch break today. Focused mainly on getting automotive section completed so I can separate automotive from woodworking tools. Now I have an area dedicated to sharpening and maintaining tools Still to finish is the rough cut, drill press and measurement workstation areas This weekend is back to electrical work: troubleshoot lighting bank, install Outside Motion Sensor LED & Overhead LED lights and Heat lamps for the Goat Bar...
I started working on the frame on Saturday.I’ve never used LVL’s before, and was expecting a more finished product than I received. But a few passes through the planer and they cleaned up pretty nicely. I used a straightedge and flush trim bit in the router to get one straight edge, then ripped to width on the table saw. I rough cut the tapered edges on the bandsaw, and cleaned them up with a straightedge and router.There are some notches in the rails for wrench clearance ...
Uh-Oh. I know I said yesterday I got the last piece of the puzzle, then I get a package today. It was something I ordered two months ago, but Lie-Nielsen had trouble with a batch of bronze so they scrapped a line and had to remake them. It is always fun to get their packages, I get to catch up on the haps of Portland, ME. I got my new scratch beader and it looks nice in its’ new home. I will make a holder for it one of these days. Always one tool away fro...
