So I’m at the grocery store this week and I walk past the light bulbs. I stop and look… I come home with 2 200 watt bulbs and replace the 2 75 wat bulbs in my garage/workshop. Wow. I feel like I’m on stage now. Can see everything nice and clear. Even if it’s warm enough to have the overhead door open, I feel well let in contrast to outside. Wish I had done this months ago!
I had to chamfer some small frame pieces but didn’t want to simply hold the pieces in my hand and run a block plane over them. Since I don’t have a chamfering plane I had to improvise. Thanks for your time.
I had to get on here tonight and post a picture of the legs for my eight year olds new bed. I am using a design from Wood Magazine that I have made one change too and that was the legs. If you have seen the plans for this bed they give you an option of bunking the bed and due to the ceiling height in his room I will pass on that. They cut out where the mortises are located for the rails and then laminated three boards together to get the finished 2 1/4 inch thickness. So my change is the use ...
A while back, I put together a set of links of random finishing topics which I posted in my blog, called Finishing Tips #5: Finishing tips #5. One of the links listed coved the topic of Chemical-Ebonizing as I saw an interest from some concerning the procedure, so this is the time to single out that process. This process does not use dye, ink or paint, and can be carried out quite easily. As a matter of formality follow proper safety precautions such as wearing safety glasses, hand prot...

We have all of the body measurements. It’s a good time to pull out the scissors. Here is what you may need. Cutting list, Chalk, pen, Yardstick of straight edge, measuring tape and in most cases a carpenter square. I bought a carpenter square at a sewing supply company for $20 once. I bought the one you see for $9.00. It is far better than the one I bought at the sewing supply store. Live and learn. Here we go – let’s hurry up and pause. Before marking my cut...
I was asked about carving eyes in my last project shown http://lumberjocks.com/projects/26334 and answered with a small lesson, It was after most of the members who are interested see already the project and the comment. I assume that more people are interested in this subject so I send it in the blog.I was asked: “On the first side shown, the side with just the head, how did you do the eyes, if you don’t mind sharing. Mostly on carved eyes, I see them carved inward to use shadow to d...

I had read on the G+G Yahoo group that the handles for the file cabinet should be attached to the draw face with a machine screw into a threaded insert. My practice attempts looked like this: The problem was keeping the insert aligned with the drilled hole. If it tipped at all, the insert would jam and break. What worked was to take a long screw, cut the head off, thread on two nuts and the insert and chuck it in the drill press. Then I could lower it straight into the hole and tur...
