From Scraps to Strips. What are the available woods that are needed? They are unlimited in terms of target dimension which is a rhombus of 30×60 deg with width of 1 inch. Aside from this I need to check on the blend of colors that are classified according to dark darker darkest.. So I will use the narra stocks that I have plenty.

Odds 'N' Ends #4: Pallet Wood De-Nailer

01-25-2016 09:54 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

This is by far my most popular video on Youtube. Funny thing is that I almost didn’t upload it because I didn’t think anyone would be interested. I was wrong. From my channel: Getting the nails out of pallet wood can be the most time-consuming part of salvaging the wood. The pallets I have come apart pretty easily, so I wanted to find a faster, easier way to get the nails out. This is what I came up with… Pallet Wood De-Nailer

Ugh, the woes of learning new video editing software. The footage of the whole point of this video was lost. I feel like I still was able to get my point across in the video, but it definitely isn’t my best work. I am releasing a few of these shorter videos this week as I learn how to use Premeire. Please bear with me. I hope you find this video to be useful.Enjoy! Seal Up A Drafty Door

Dust Collection #5: Remote Start for Dust Collector

01-22-2016 03:56 AM by ThomasLightle | 6 comments »

I hate having to maneuver around the shop to turn on my dust collectors. A lot of times I don’t remember until I have the cut all lined up and ready to go. I hope this small modification will make things a little more convenient.In the post-Christmas clearance, I found a set of Christmas light remote switches.

The guy Quinn told me he had bundles of lumber which were mostly hard maple and walnut with some wenge and sapele. I ended up getting all of it! I feel that I got a great deal with over 100 bd ft fo...

Hi; so, last Summer the air compressor busted after only 28 years of service. I started off trying to fix it then gave up. And I bought a new and slightly bigger one….. which has been in my way in front of the cellar stairs to the outdoors ever since. Why? Because if it isn’t plugged directly into a wall outlet it blows the breaker! So i left it there and I pull it out in front of the clothes dryer to use it. because that is one of the only 2 places that I can plug it in, in...
