I’m finally finished with the desk. There were a few odds and ends that needed to be wrapped up. I decided to use figure 8 fasteners to hold the top to the base and allow it to move with the seasons. I happened to get my latest copy of Fine Woodworking and there was an article discussing how to properly connect the top and base and why it was important to allow for seasonal movement. A variety of methods were explained. I did learn that the figure 8’s along the front and back need to ...
I’ve mentioned to a few before, that putting things in their proper place in the Dungeon workshop is much like playing with one of those sliding puzzles, or more like a Rubik cube. It came down to this: I needed more lumber racks and I needed to sort out the questionable-to-down-right-bad-boards and get them out of the shop. My first task was to build a rack for sheet goods. The only place with enough space is the entryway into the dungeon. It’s full now with most all of the sh...
Well I am finally moved into my new home and have gotten my computer mostly setup. New videos in the new shop to come soon! If you have any stickers or smag you want to send to help decorate my new shop, let me know!https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCppWfrYGXCr5lm9uW-Fpqqw
I’m baaaaaack! (Sort of) It’s been over a year now since my last post—it’s amazing how much time 3 kids can eat up. My youngest son was born in January of 2014 and pretty much all of last year was devoted to helping care for the infant while making sure the older two (now 6 and 4) didn’t (a) kill each other or (b) burn the house down while attempting (a). The workshop was closed up for the winter last year around this time and I have shamefully relegated the workbench to a storage re...
In this video I discuss whats new and upcoming in the Dread Knot Woodshop. Check it out here
Wow! I just looked at the activity log and it seems almost impossible that that much time has passed since I last commented or participated on this site. I have been back occasionally to see what’s been going on but sadly have not participated. A lot of things have happened over that last 6 year and I am finally getting settled enough to get back into doing some woodworking. I have been doing lots of home remodeling but have not built any furniture pieces since I was last at the MASW fo...
2014 was a good year for woodworking and for YouTube. I was able to complete several projects (I haven’t posted everything on Lumberjocks) and was able to grow my subscriber count to over 800 on YouTube. We purchased a scroll saw for my wife after she expressed an interest in learning how to use one and making some things that we can possibly sell for some extra cash. One of my big goals in 2015 is to finish my shop organization by adding the rest of the french cleats that I want ...
Well, this is embarrassing. There is a saying I usually go by, ”Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance.” After starting “My Box” I went to a local funeral home and found out the dimensions required for a cremation urn. Yep, too small. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! Hopefully the friend I’ll give the box to wont find out it was suppose to be my final resting place. ;) I just wanted to give an update to my Buddies. The last surgery I had several weeks ago really ...
Hi LJs! First of all I wish all of you a very happy 2014, full of sawdust and splinters and luv ;) As a quick update, after the worst storm I ever came across, things have suddenly changed to the best in a single day in mid-november. As of now I still won’t have much time available for posting and general lurking here (or even on flickr) but in a nutshell: it’s a new life! Cheers! Thomas
