How to Make a Hammer Handle

06-12-2017 01:26 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 5 comments »

View on YouTube So hammers are something that we all use and quite frankly there’s as many different ones as there are people in the world. There’s a hammer for every job, and there’s a gorilla somewhere that knows how to use it. To keep it practical, hammers/handles are purely individual taste. I’m not a big fan of overthinking things like thickness/shape/curve/popularityontheinternet. There’s no wrong way to do it but there are ways that work better than o...

How to stabilize anything with legs – except maybe some politicians! It does not matter how many legs the item has either. (Anything with just three legs is self-stabilizing.) We’ve all been irritated with a jiggly chair or table which just doesn’t want to be steady. This is a simple little trick which makes it easy to correct the problem – and maybe be a hero to your lady or friend too. The idea is very simple, but I’ve noticed that many people approach this ...

Shop Tips & Tricks #21: Jacking sideways, or "Walking the Jack."

05-25-2017 12:38 AM by GnarlyErik | 6 comments »

Here’s an idea you may find useful some day. This trick uses a jack to safely move something horizontally. You can turn most jacks on their sides, but then must have something solid to jack against. Did you know you can use a jack by itself to move something sideways without needing a side purchase at all? It’s a pretty simple notion, but it may not occur to you. This requires a jack with a rigidly solid, flat base like a bottle jack. Other types of jacks may work too, but most will carry ...

https://youtu.be/E_IH6icdItI In this video, I put a top on top of a set of drawers headed for the trash. The top is plywood, and I clear coated it as well. I ended up stacking it on top of some filing cabinets that I ripped of a desk that was being thrown away. both units have plywood tops.If you enjoyed this video, then consider subscribing to the channel.

ATTN OKLAHOMA WOODWORKERS!!

05-10-2017 02:49 PM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

So I noticed after looking on Facebook that there were no woodworking guilds in Oklahoma that I could fine so I’ve made a Facebook page titled woodworkers Guild of Oklahoma basically just because a lot of other states have a guild and my hopes are to build some networking and make some relationships with some other woodworkers locally because to be quite honest I don’t have but one friend who is a woodworker and he can’t do anything right now because of a personal injury. ...

Remote Controller for my Dust Collection system

05-08-2017 04:33 PM by Tim | 0 comments »

This is a remote I built for my dust collection system. I only wired in one 240v circuit to my garage a few years ago, never expecting to need another. Vice installing a second circuit, I decided to maximize the existing circuit while designing my remote controller for my dust collection system. This site is where my inspiration came from. I already had the 120v remote, which was being used for my original HF 1hp blower. Now, my DC remote controller is using a DPDT 240v relay that requi...
