Suggestions welcome, but no guarantees

05-31-2015 08:17 PM by Dave Rutan | 5 comments »

I’m pretty sure this wood is from the trunk of a small pear tree I took down a few years ago. I cut off another hunk of it this spring and re-sawed it into 3 mini slabs with my band saw. Then I ran them through my thickness planer to get them to a uniform approximate 3/8 inch. The length is about 17 inches, but I’ll need to remove about 2 inches from each end because of the planer snipe. I want to make something from this wood. The question is what to make from it. Right no...

A Strategy for Woodworking #51: Taking Down a Tree

05-14-2015 02:32 AM by Gary Rogowski | 4 comments »

I hate cutting down trees. As much as I love the wood that comes from them, there is still something about cutting down a tree that seems to me an affront. A crime against the sky. Certainly it is a loss of some valuable shade in the heat of the sun. And it changes a landscape, a street view. But it was half dead and once cut, discovered to be rotten inside. It had to come down now in a noisy if controlled fashion rather than taking out someone’s car some chance day. It was a good sized tr...

The Tinker's Apprentice #2: My Dilemma

04-07-2015 08:50 PM by droogs | 1 comment »

Having had my “road to Damascus” moment, the realisation dawned on me that although I had just had a world beating business idea; I in fact had absolutely no way in which to achieve its fruition. After all, here was I with no tools at all, other than a very worn Phillips screwdriver, a decrepit claw hammer, a knock-off 12mm Marples “blue” bevelled chisel (with sides that could only be described as having been ground using the kerb) and a rather cheap and nasty ¼” drive socket set missing the ...

The Tinker's Apprentice #1: A Beginning

04-03-2015 06:37 PM by droogs | 2 comments »

Where to start? At the beginning I suppose. Well, not the very beginning as that would entail going all the way back to a rather dreary wet Tuesday afternoon (and it was, I’ve checked) in an equally dreary and dank tenement building in Glasgow in 1968. For you dear reader I think perhaps that that may be a little too far and not very interesting and it would also be definitely far off the mark, as far as the subject of this tome to come is concerned, as could be. So, I guess I will begin s...

Coveting Thy Neighbor's Wood Stash

03-02-2015 10:03 PM by Dave Rutan | 17 comments »

My neighbor has had this shed since before we moved in 20 years ago. In the loft I can see these lengths of wood. I have no idea what kind of wood it is, but I’ve never seen then use even one board. Over the years, the father has died and (sort of) recently his son. No one lives there, but the original owner’s elderly spinster daughter. Her nephew comes by to do the yard work, but doesn’t touch the wood. I sometimes wonder if I should inquire about it in case t...

A Strategy for Woodworking #45: Expectations

03-02-2015 03:42 PM by Gary Rogowski | 3 comments »

Expectations. We all have them when we walk into the shop. Ah yes, I have come to spend a pleasant relaxing day at the bench undisturbed, unperturbed. Then you begin work. Things can go wrong. Jigs don’t work, parts mis-align as the glue holds fast in the wrong spot, wood tears out, screw heads break off, and finishes blotch. Lest it be misunderstood that I am somehow above the fray here, that nothing ever goes wrong for me, that I am the calm sea in the eye of every storm at my bench, ...

PVC Dust Collection Blast Gate - self cleaning design with a detent feature

02-17-2015 05:23 PM by GlassImpressions | 3 comments »

I filmed the build on my YouTube Channel. Please check it out! Please like, share, and if you enjoyed the video subscribe! http://youtu.be/ACLFMAfV1fk I recently added a Clearvue Cyclone dust collector to my shop. I plumbed it completely with 6” and 4” PVC piping. I needed a way to close off each branch to maximize the performance of the dust collector. Commercially available plastic blast gates are way to cheap and clog easily. The metal blast gates that solve this issue are p...
