Craftsman 113.27610 Restoration #2: Finishing up assembly for the most part. And breaking things!

443 days ago by JawShoeAh | 2 comments »

Day number two feels good. You made so much progress last night, and it’s almost done. So you jump right in, and decided to put your trunions on and figure this thing out. 3 long screws hold them on. ...well, easier to put them on first, then flip the whole show onto the table top I think. Bam. You got this. ...That’s supposed to be behind that. (swear a lot) Rent a bearing puller. Hooray. Just like day number two feels so good, so does doing things twice. Ho...

10 Steps to Getting Started in Traditional Woodworking with Hand Tools #11: |Step 10| Learn how to Finish the Wood

98 days ago by WoodAndShop | 2 comments »

Step 10 is one of my favorite steps, because you get to see the true beauty reveal itself in the wood, and the grain patterns shine forth! I’ll admit it, I’m not one of those woodworkers who love complex finish recipes, but I love making it as simple as possible. In the above video I introduced quite a few of the well-known finishes used by woodworkers (there’s probably a lot more) but I encourage everyone to experiment and find out which finishes they like the best. My favorite, easies...

The Harbor Freight Experiment Series #1: Setting ground rules to contain my impulsiveness and inner cheapskate

219 days ago by paxorion | 2 comments »

As I was cleaning and (re)organizing my cramped basement tool storage, I realized that I’ve acquired over the years a large number of Harbor Freight tools and disposable items. Most of my early purchases were made as impulse buys (after all it’s only a few bucks!) or because my inner cheapskate convinced me (against reason) that I didn’t need to spend any extra money for a brand name. Seeing the stockpile made me realize that I have certainly wised up in ways of figuring o...

solid-door workbench #1: the top with solid-core doors

828 days ago by ChrisMc45 | 2 comments »

So I got a monster solid-WOOD-core door from when they tore down the bowling alley on Redstone Arsenal. I now wish I had scored a few more, but that is hindsight. (PLEASE don’t even mention the actual alleys, you can read about that kind of heartache or learning experience “here on LJ:” We had big solid-core doors on offices at work. Long-story-short, I found a distributor who discarded many doors per quarter and was happy to give them away, details “HERE“ ...

Time

2023 days ago by Rogue | 2 comments »

I have come to see a photograph as a good analogy for woodworking. my new year resolution is to make more pieces for sale as oppossed to doing mostly commition and ordered work. This “photo” theme is the reason for this new direction. The world seems to have sped up. I have poeple that complain about how long things take to complete. In connection to that, they can’t beleive the price of my service even though I have one of the lowest shop rates for 100 miles. A still ...

So you want to go pro #16: MORE WEB NEWS

2282 days ago by odie | 2 comments »

I forgot to bring you all up to date. How you get noticed by Google and Yahoo is called “meta names”. These names are embedded in code in your web site on each page. Google and Yahoo! use crawlers to find and read these meta “tags”. They use them to pick where and in what categories your site is listed. I now have a program that lets me go in and change and add to my “meta names”. The problem, I found out, is that .mac doesn’t allow for this. There...
