Boat building #1: In need of spiritual applicant with free plans

09-27-2009 06:08 PM by threehands | 2 comments »

Hello all. I am in need. A need to fill the void. The void is an empty spot. The empty spot in an area of the shop I haven’t seen in years. There actually is a floor under all that “junk” as the bride would say. (I say golden treasures.) But, what I need now is spiritual help and a set of free plans for a drift boat or dory. I know I can build one, just need the plans. Have looked and downloaded several but cant find ones concerning a Montana style. Those guys craft some s...

Spring cleaning in Fall still no fun !!!!!!!!

09-21-2009 04:07 AM by Built2Last | 2 comments »

A couple of days ago I decided it was time to build a rack to organize my nuts, bolts, screws, washers and other fasteners. I don’t know how I got so many but man, they are everywhere. As I sort thru them I am listing them and anything else I either don’t need, use or have more than one of on ebay. So far I’ve listed over 75 items I think and still have more to go. A couple of items are either rare or expensive like a Starrett calibrated master square set (http://cgi.ebay.co...

When it was finished, the client decided to introduce a change: to divide the desk.

09-14-2009 10:47 PM by xylosapiens | 2 comments »

The client decided to make a change: he need an access to the desk’s inside, when her products are exposed on the counter. After thinking about the possible solutions and having to keep the structural solidity, I decided that easiest alternative was to cut the desk board. One of the questions was how to make the holes for the axes in such a small space. I found only one solution: to tear off the central piece for drilling, so that after glueing, the piece could looked like before manipu...

Ravenfarm.com--Great Lumber-Cheap

09-13-2009 01:04 AM by jockmike2 | 12 comments »

In Bath, Michigan I visited a beautiful operation that has a ton of wood. The owners name is Kelvin and you couldn’t meet a better person.

He has air dried and kiln dried lumber in various sizes. His ad says he doesn’t ship, but he says he does. Fed Ex. You can go on Craigslist and find his ad. Go to Michigan, then Lansing area, an...

Episode 40 tablesaw setup part 1

09-03-2009 12:25 AM by kosta | 6 comments »

In this episode I setup the stand to my new skil tablesaw. Most people start off with one of these saws because they are about $120 and theywork ok. Putting the stand together is easy but reading the manual is a pain in the ass because it goes back in forth from english to spanish.I put a piece of cardboard between the saw and the stand to stop all the dust from going ton the floor. I have a full review of this saw on my website at www.kostasworkshop.blogspot.com
