Just a simple little box... #2: The other corners get their turn..

04-21-2016 03:53 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, had a heart monitor on for a few days ( taped the electrodes on, and they got ripped off…OW!) Did a short rust hunt. Couple of coping saws needed new blades…spent $2 on each saw. Already had the blades. Stopped at the Green Borg ( Menards) and got a few pieces of hardware. new brass hinges, a new “Olde Brass” Latch, and a few bags of brass screws…..NOT phillips headed ones, either. I got the ones with the slotted, oval heads. Anyway… b...

Tilt-Out Wastebasket Cabinet #1: Stock Prep

04-20-2016 05:47 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

I ended up with a lot of footage, so I am going to split the video up as needed to the time manageable. In this video, I start my new project which is a tilt-out wastebasket cabinet. As usual, I start out with rough lumber, so much of this first video is about preparing the stock. Need to Joint a board that is wider than your jointer? I cover that in this video as well. Stay tuned to see how it all turns out! View on YouTube Instagram:

Just a simple little box... #1: start up.

04-20-2016 01:23 AM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Although the Stanley 45 is just about all cleaned and shiny, that box is just about a lost cause….way too many cracks, a repair used the wrong wood. Sooo, I went out and bought some 1/2” x 5-1/2” Poplar. about 5’ of it. Laid out a few crosscuts. two to make the sides of a new box, and two for the ends. An older Sears Craftsman ” Special saw” was taken down from the hook, a little wax of the teeth, cuts were done. I clamped up the two matching ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1722: Thinking Outside the Box

04-18-2016 12:11 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I hope you had a good weekend. Here in Nova Scotia, we are finally seeing some lasting signs of spring. While it is still cool out, it has been pleasant and sunny, and I dare say that the snow is behind us and I don't expect we will see any additional snow until late autumn. (You all know what an optimist I am though!) I had a full weekend myself. It felt good to focus and accomplish as much as I did. I a large order, as well as some smaller ones that I have been working on and over ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1721: Working for the Weekend

04-15-2016 12:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

A usual, my life has been quite busy. I suppose that is the result of having so many creative interests. I often am asked how I come up with my ideas and if I ever get 'dry' where I feel that I am against the wall. In all honesty, I do have my lulls in certain areas of my design work, but since I have so many avenues that I actively pursue, there is rarely, if ever a time when I feel that I have 'nothing to do' creatively. If I am feeling especially uncreative – which ra...

The Stanley 45 revivial #2: Fence is cleaned up, cutters next.

04-15-2016 02:32 AM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Well, after a visit to the Doctor’s office for the Cardio Check up, went and got a bit more done. Yesterday, took the fence almost all the way down to just….parts. laid the parts out on the notepad, while wire wheeling each piece. Bolts were sprayed with a ittle WD40, then installed. I didn’t bother to remove the rosewood fence. The Knob was taken off, just to clean up the bolt that held it. Finally got it all back together….. Then cleaned the straight ...

Shop Tour 2016 - Before the year of Organization

04-14-2016 09:53 PM by Ty Moser | 0 comments »

I’ve been wanting to do a shop tour for years now and have always put it off until I could complete that “next” project. I finally realized that my shop would never be finalized and there would always be a “next” project to complete. I’ve deemed 2016 the year of organizational projects and filmed this shop tour as a way of documenting the before and after of at least 4 shop projects I have. This was also my first experience with a 4K camera and found tha...

A journey into the workshop. #96: Air Compressor dump line, mistakes, home AC fixes and replacement tools...

04-14-2016 08:51 PM by dbhost | 0 comments »

So during my AC compressor dump line install, I messed up and managed to break my pressure gauge. So I went ahead and went to Harbor Freight again, and picked up a 200PSI filled gauge and a few replacement tools for those that are lost broken etc… I pressurized the system, and held it for 26 hours. Sadly the system went from 150PSI to 40PSI. I know what the problem is, the gague when threaded in all the way points down, so it is 1/2 turn loose on the compressor, Not sure how to f...
