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 ...
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...
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...
Here’s an update of what’s going on. It’s fun to write about these things because you never know who is going to give good feed back, or what advice really hits home. So, thanks to y’all that read these. I read yalls too! And… WOW are there some beautiful projects out there. French Cleat: Inspired by watching April Wilkerson on YouTube. This has been a real confidence builder. Since I’ve always loved technology and heard of sketch up from a random You...
In this video I cover some recent acquisitions. I plan on upcycling an old cedar fence I got from a neighbor. I hope to make a video of the process. I got a used softener for free that I will install with my new tankless water heater, and I got some Corian cutoffs from a local supplier. I also cover the status of my projects and upcoming videos.Enjoy!

One of the best prizes I have ever got, was a wooden box from a fellow LJer named Doe. It contained a Canadian made, Stanely No.45, T-20. Twas a bit rusty, here and there. My “job” was to bring it back to life, and post a few pictures when done. The plane? And,thanks to the USPS playing “catch” with it, the lid came out of the mailing carton in 5 pieces. William was kind enough to nail the pieces back together. So, a rehab? Tried all the parts, to see...
Yesterday was one of those days when I felt as if I was running in circles. It wasn't bad at all, but there were just a lot of things on our plates and we were trying to accomplish a great deal in what seemed like a short amount of time.I know I said that our newsletter would go out by last evening, but we just didn't get that far. There was too much to do and by the time we got everything on the site, I was too tired and it was just too late.But all is not lost. Today is another day....
I am running late today because I got distracted. I don't believe I mentioned it here in my blog, but in a couple of months we are moving into a much bigger place. Most of you who follow me here in social media know that for the past seven years, we have been living and running our business out of a one bedroom apartment. While it is clean and nice and we have used our storage to the utmost efficiency, we both decided that it is getting too hard to do so with our business growing the way ...

I started by my project by opening the book to the materials list. Then grab a board of oak and cut it down to make the rales.
