Tales of a Hack #3: Shop status -- Full.

12-11-2014 10:59 PM by ajw1978 | 7 comments »

I’ll post some introductory reviews in the next couple days, but for now, just wanted to “show off” the latest additions to my “workshop” (a term I still use in the loosest possible sense as I’m still a Downtown-dweller with but a large patio from which to work). Last weekend, I jumped on a HD deal of the day that offered an 18V Ridgid drill/driver and impact driver kit, along with two batteries for $149. After placing the order, though, I saw the 12V Ri...

It is a bit cold here... #1: Trying to stay busy but not in the shop, brrrr!

11-14-2014 01:42 AM by patty | 7 comments »

Well the artic blast is here and yes it is cold. I don’t have power in my shop yet so I use cords n until today no heat. So I went shopping today at a couple great places for getting awesome deals. First we went to our Habitat Resale Store, omg it’s my favorite. They have so much stuff some new mostly gently used but the selection and prices are the best. Plus the money spent helps families in need get a house. So I got a couple new blades for saws and I got some hinges for ...

The Motherlode

10-31-2010 04:40 AM by Rick Boyett | 8 comments »

I took my wife to First Monday Trade Days in Canton, TX. For those of you that do not know, the entire town of Canton, TX becomes a huge flea market on the weekend prior to the first Monday of each month. There you can find lots of planes, but there are two booths that are of particular interest. Those booths have the motherlode of hand planes and other tools. First up a 19th century workbench from Hammacher Schlemmer & Co. Have any of you ever seen an ALUMINUM No. 45? ...

Handmade Portraits #5: Handmade Portraits: Jason Tennant

08-20-2010 09:30 PM by Etsy | 5 comments »

“The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity… and some scarce see Nature at all. But, to the eyes of the man of imagination, Nature is imagination itself.” — William Blake, Letter to the Reverend John Trusler, August 23, 1799 Jason Tennant is grounded. He is rooted in his place with strength and dignity, not so distinct from the trees surrounding him. Before ...

Extremely Average #54: Frantic Speed Shopping

02-25-2010 05:19 AM by Ecocandle | 24 comments »

The sun was out today and it was the first time this year that I noticed the days seem to be hanging out a bit longer. They are sneaky that way, sort of creeping up on spring. After all the snow this winter, I will welcome spring with a giddiness that I haven’t experienced in years. Of course, it was still cold out, when I got into my car, but the sunlight on my face warmed my spirits considerably. I had errands to run. I needed to get some petrol and oil for my car. I was craving...

Handmade Portraits #3: Handmade Portraits: Woodmouse

12-12-2008 10:47 PM by Etsy | 7 comments »

Toymaker Amber Dusick aka woodmouse her wood shop in her garage in downtown LA. After the birth of her son, this one time farm girl from Wisconsin became nostalgic for the toys from her past: simple, natural toys that would inspire creativity and imaginative play, made from materials that wouldn’t stick around in a landfill for thousands of years. After years of silver smithing, throwing pottery and drawing with pen and ink, Amber finally found her medium in wood. Using sustainab...

Setting Up Shop #3: A few of my favorite tools...so far.

11-10-2008 11:05 PM by David A. P. | 0 comments »

Being supremely lazy, and having already made some pithy and amusing (at least, amusing to me) comments on a list of my favorite tools—at least, at the point that I wrote it up—I’m going to link to my Amazon Listmania list here. I’ve gotten stuff since then, of course, and I have even more interesting and fun stuff to say…but that will be in the next (-ish) post. Hopefully this is at least somewhat useful!

12-19-2007 12:55 AM by jockmike2 | 11 comments »

Well I really did have to return a few items back to Johnsons Workbench were I got all the goodies the other day. For one thing I bought a bag that said 20 ft of veneer, what it did’nt say they where in 5”x9” pieces all multi colored. I asked the guy, what in the heck is a person going to do with 25 or 30 pieces of 5×9 inch pieces of veneer. He said well you can do a lot of things with them. Like eh, eh, well you could think of a lot of things. I said right. Anyway they...

Weekend upgrade

05-14-2007 05:20 AM by scottb | 10 comments »

Did a bit of unplanned shopping today. Had to pick up a book for some hints on redoing a set of stairs this week. New oak treads, risers, double rails with 24 spindles on each side and open (that’s right open) beneath! No kneewall, or partial boxing in to allow myself to run the spindles down to a diagonal piece… just drywall to box in the existing supports…. but I digress. So while I was searching for that book…. I’ve been hankering for a new drill, rather an...
