Sandpaper deal

02-27-2017 11:01 PM by Mike54Ohio | 5 comments »

Found a couple boxes on the front porch earlier today-opened em up and here is what I found: I think I am good on sandpaper for awhile. Two types, the lighter colored rolls are adhesive backed with grits from 80 to 220 and the darker colored stacks range from 80 to 400 grit, all industrial grade end rolls from Klingspor. They sell them in 5 lb lots for the adhesive backed and 10 & 20 lb boxes for other stuff. Now I need to start more projects and use some of that paper, with the bi...

Router Cabinet Redo #1: Motivation & Research

02-27-2017 04:45 AM by edwood1975 | 8 comments »

I built a router cabinet and table about 2 years ago and it’s simply a must have tool in my shop . Although it was one of my first shop projects I did a decent job on it but the design failed in a few ways . You can see my first router cabinet here : The other day I was I was wheeling it and 2 of the casters fell off , I used the casters that you insert into a leg, the leg cracked and out came the caster. I also built my own table using MDF and that began to sag where the route...

View on YouTube Few time I decided it was time to improve my sharpening gadgets, so after some research I found this design of a sink a bridge. its basically two board, one on top of each other merged with a screw that also serves as lock to put the stones. In the end I gave it a nice coat of epoxy to make it waterproof. Now I have a tool that makes my life easier and that its gonna last. Hope you like this video. And if you want you can also find more projects and builds in my channel h...

Corn Hole Game

02-16-2017 02:07 AM by Cathie Zimmerman | 0 comments »

Hi! Took a break from the kids table and chairs as suggested by some great people. On to a donation item for my sled hockey team. Hopefully we can do a raffle or something with it. :) The one thing I really struggled with is the 6 inch hole. I cut it out with a jigsaw and then sanded to the line. I wanted to go over it with a roundover bit… when I did it made it lopsided and bad! I’m not sure how I’m gonna fix that, lol. The good thing is, I have a wrap to put on it!! ...

Honey locust bench. #1: The start of my outdoor bench.

02-08-2017 04:51 PM by mchapman87 | 1 comment »

So I am finally getting started on making a few new pieces out of my small garage woodshop. Money has been tight and I haven’t been able to get the wood I need to fiddle around with. I was given a load of rough milled lumber from a friend who is just learning how to use his mill. Most of the pieces are not flat, pretty wavy but are fairly thick. This helps because I can take off some material flattening the pieces, making them useable boards. He didn’t charge me an...

Musical Instruments #7: The Resonators and completion

01-29-2017 02:56 PM by johnstoneb | 4 comments »

I put the final tune on the resonators. This took a little while and a lot of miles. Temperature plays a lot in the tune of this instrument. We have had an unusually cool winter I kept the resonators in the house and carried each to the shop sanded a little then walked back in the house checked the tune then repeated. This kept the tube close to room temperature but required about 3 trips per for each resonator time 37 is a lot of trips. Everything is within 3 cents so were good to go. ...
