Hello again folks! This weekend’s project was a toy gun, but I wanted to make the trigger click back after being fired. To accomplish this, I used a simple rubber band! The main shape was cut out using a Shapeoko 3 CNC machine. Enjoy! View on YouTubeuTube
My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1812: Elipse Low-Profile Dust Mask Review
(I want to note that I am was in no way compensated for this review. I researched and purchased this mask on my own.) In today's blog post, I am going to talk about something that I think is rather important. It is something that I have been lax on myself, but I made a vow with my woodworking friend (Leldon) that we are going to change things and try to do a bit better about it. What I am referring to is wearing a dust mask when doing our woodworking and cutting wood. Now I a...

I hope everyone had a Festive Christmas, and I wish everyone a very Happy and Prosperous New Year! I didn’t realise quite how long I had been out of the game, until today. I seem to have spent all my time with Medical Specialists. I have had the operation on my right knee, and that is progressing nicely, at least I am no longer walking with a stick. Unfortunately the second spinal block, did not work on my back, so what happens next, I have no idea, and I am also waiting to see if th...
I have all Christmas presents ready and time to work on the Marimba again.When I left last I had moved the lower keyboard over an 1 1/2 for clearance. After final tune and drilling the keys I didn’t like the gap so I moved everything back an 1 1/4. It looks way better. I applied one coat of lacquer. The old adjustment The final. Keys are closer to the upper frame and just looks better. I need to quit over thinking these things. Time to rough tune the keys. the keys were ...

This is the story: after tinkering the plane I got so tired that at night I dreamed that I was at the beach using the plane like a mirror. So check out my dream come true here: https://youtu.be/eIzW6Nsi0aE The plane is a Stanley n5 with the sole and edges in a very poor condition. In addition, the blade holder (frog) was not flat so the blade did not work well. Although it’s a work that needs patience, believe me that you will have a happy ending and the difference is well worth ...
So my mom’s been talking about putting a stand for her heavy, kitchen aid mixer at the end of her kitchen counter. I thought i might be able to build something so we collaborated on the design to fit the space. I drew it in Sketchup Some new adventures for me… 1. getting good tight miter corners on the framing of the top.. Outside board will be 5.5” to look like a very thick top.2. 4 side tapered leg. (time to build a tapering jig for my table saw)3. mo...
Made a lot of mistakes on this one, which caused me to learn a bunch of new tricks and fixes. Firstly, I shouldn’t have used crooked wood for the box sides. I knew what would happen. All the corners were bad of course. I cut them out! Then when I was doweling the new corners, they cracked. Just wanted to show my project that I love and hate and maybe hear some feedback, or other horror stories.
