Hi friends! Today I finished my small project and made my garage pants of usual jeans and leather. Regular, ordinary pants destroys very quickly and I tried to strengthen it by leather… Let’s watch my video of the process: https://youtu.be/47LuKMTRLz8
I shot the video for this in April 2015 but only now had the chance to edit it. check out the video! HERE https://youtu.be/EJEBAPN21oA I used an old soldering stick/iron which had a large piece of copper at the end I cut of the end and carved my initials mirrored with a hacksaw, wood chisel Thanks for watching if you enjoyed this video please consider sharing this video and check out my channel

So as most of you know I finished my cabinet a few weeks ago save the drawers. Since my mother’s garage cabinets that some of you have seen, I have had an outright war with drawers. I cannot seem to get them right, ever. I have tried the expensive soft close all the way to the under and side mount white roller slidey ones. This time was no different. I bought those crappy white roller wheel sliders because they were cheap and I wanted to try something new (not to mention it was fo...
Recently there have been articles discussing tape measure maintenance, selection and how to use them in the shop. My opinion is to use them at the cutoff table for large crosscuts with a radial arm or chop saw, and leave them there. There should not be a dedicated place in your woodworking tool cabinet for a tape measure. The closest I would come would be a fabric tape to measure curved work. I worked in construction for a while and used a tape for everything, I just don’t see their pla...
Adjustable Bench Hook Bench hooks are a very nice addition to a workbench. Sometimes for carving a small piece, a bench hook can be a bit too deep. Using a woodtek router bit (bit #942858I 14” shank) had for making jigs I routed two slots in a bench hook and drilled some holes for the hardware to slip in. I had thought about using a T-track inlayed in the hook for the adjustment, but I thought ...
I completed work on the jointer today and got it running. I had the camera rolling as I did it and got that all packaged up and loaded. I hope you like the conclusion of this small series on my jointer. It takes a lot of time to make them, but it is fun time. I am enjoying this combination of hobbies. Thanks for watching! https://youtu.be/i4-7iqLnnxY
Wedges are very useful to have around. If you are using wedged tenon joinery they are a must. You can use them to fill a bad dovetail joint, hold an un-level chair from rocking while you mark out the leg to be cut, repair a bad tenon etc. When I make my wedges I try to make them is a mass scale so I don’t have to worry about running out in the middle of a glue up. I have had that happen, where I had to stop in the middle of a glue up and make a wedge, very annoying. So here are some pic...
Drawing in Perspective You don’t have to be an artist to be a woodworker, but a good foundation in perspective drawing can come in very helpful. I have the fortunate history of many art classes to pull from and I am often asked by clients to draw up a design that I have proposed. Being able to draw a design that will eventually resemble the piece you plan to build can make the process easier. I am a firm believer that a woodworker should always keep a journal of design ideas near...
I’ve seen the commercials, I knew I had a couple project where this would come in handy, I debated and procrastinated for months. Finally I decided to buy one of these jigs, I decided on the R3 because the sound of $40 vs $100 was a better bet. Overall it’s a great little tool to have on hand. How ever there are certain things they don’t mention so I will. There screws are not as self tapping as they claim. A self tapping screw should bite and grab these one you need clamp y...
