Low VOC and Safety

01-18-2011 11:00 PM by Brian Havens | 1 comment »

(I copied the text hereafter from my latest journal entry http://www.brianhavens.com/tab/shop-journal so that my buds at Lumberjocks would not miss this safety issue.) It is hard to read an article about finishing wood, these days, without some mention of “low VOC’s”. These articles vaguely characterise these low VOC finishes as somehow good for humans. It reminds me of those Life cereal commercials that I grew up with: “What’s that?” “Some lo...

Beads Box #10: Get Up on your Feet! Routing Safety and Avoiding Tearout

01-10-2011 01:35 AM by PurpLev | 11 comments »

I was able to get to the garage today as a request for a new shelf for the kitchen was in. While there I saw some cutoff pieces of mahogany that I had piled up from the past 2 projects, and saw 4 legs hidden in those waiting to come out to life. I had wanted to put legs on this box from the get go but wasn’t set on a design that I liked and was mentally blocked with it. I decided to make 3 1.5” x 1.5” x 1” legs and just chamfer the bottoms – just to have so...

Child Safety In The Home Workshop

11-28-2010 09:47 AM by swampjack80 | 11 comments »

Hi everyone, So, I finally made it out to my shop today after a good/bad couple of Thanksgiving off-days. Good because I was able to spend some time with my family, bad because I had to watch Auburn mount a great comeback against my beloved Crimson Tide, bleh! So what could be a better way to unwind than piddling around all day in the ol’ workshop? Well, I’m running a few short boards through the planer when my wife and 3 yr old son, Chad Jr., pay me a visit. I try to keep a sa...

This is What Table Saw Kickback Looks Like (Warning: A Little Graphic)

10-21-2010 02:30 AM by PocketHole69 | 21 comments »

I have a Ridgid R4510 portable contractors saw- its the new and improved version that replaced the TS2410 and it’s a great saw. The problem is, when I bought it they did not yet have available a dado insert so I made my own out of 1/4” plywood and some leveling screws. Saturday night I was cutting dados on my table saw when my home made dado throat plate slid forward and caught on the dado blade. I was doing everything right- using a miter gauge with an extended fence, not us...

3 bandaids later....

10-20-2010 08:21 PM by MsDebbieP | 35 comments »

Oct. 20/10 Today I started to tackle the task of Xmas present making—some bottle stoppers. It has been a while since I’ve worked on the lathe but things were going well. I took a break to prepare dinner and while peeling some potatoes the peeler slipped and sliced the end of my finger. (no—the accident didn’t happen at the lathe.) I guess I did a pretty good job on the cut because it took 3 bandaids and elevation of the hand to get the finger to stop bleeding. (w...

From the "Little Good Pieces" Blog Archives #3: Shutdown - Sometimes Stopping is More Important Than Starting

10-19-2010 12:53 AM by TheGravedigger | 0 comments »

This article was originally posted on the Little Good Pieces blog on September 15, 2010 ”Sometimes stopping is more important than starting.” After my wife’s adventure with the mower, we did an after-action analysis. This practice is a good idea after any sort of mishap to determine if anything can be changed to prevent a recurrence. She kept saying, “If I could have just stopped the blades…”. <address> </address>I made the suggestion that s...

From the "Little Good Pieces" Blog Archives #2: Seeing the Fangs

10-09-2010 04:21 PM by TheGravedigger | 2 comments »

This article was originally posted on the “Little Good Pieces” blog on September 11, 2010: My wife had a nasty scare the other day. She was mowing near the house with our zero-turn mower when she accidentally ran over an old bath mat the dogs had dragged up. The mower started a nasty vibration that jerked her body and thusly the control levers. The mower immediately took off like a bucking bronco, tearing a chunk out of the doghouse roof, knocking a support post completely loos...
