Shop Organization #2: Quick and Easy Lumber Storage Rack

05-20-2016 05:10 AM by ThomasLightle | 1 comment »

I sold my old lumber storage solution which was… inelegant, to put it lightly. I am purposely storing this set of lumber outside, half because I ran out of room in my indoor storage, but also to have a bit of weathered wood handy, should the need arise. I went simple with this, using some pallet runners, I bored some holes at a slight angle ever so slightly undersized for the conduit pieces I had prepared as shelf supports. I then attached the wood brackets to the wall and hammered in...

Free Wood #4: The Pew Report

05-14-2016 11:36 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

As mentioned previously in this series, I got possession of two old church pews that my church no longer needed. Today I disassembled them and cut the long pieces in half crosswise to fit them in my car. Because of the splits in the wood, I ended up with many 1×4’s and a few 1×6’s. One seat stayed intact, but it has a split. I’ll have to break it anyway to fit through my thickness planer. I cleaned the wood up, taking off any molding so that it would fit ...

Free Wood #3: This Wood Won't Smell

05-13-2016 12:35 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

My church had two pews in the narthex that were starting to fall apart. I had repaired them a few times, but there’s only so much you can do without just taking them apart and restoring them. I was starting to make plans on replacing them with plywood benches, but this week the church got a hold of some reception are chairs for free. So now the pews are spare and I’ve offered to take them away. They are each 12 feet long and made (I think) of maple. I’ll have to c...

Shop Bench

05-09-2016 02:37 AM by WoodywoodpeckerMike | 9 comments »

This is my Garage Shop Bench project that is taking on a life of its own…growing and evolving…. Check out the video n pics… The build went rather smoothly…only hit my hand with the hammer 3 or 4 times…but I got in some left hand hammering so it was pretty good. The bench came out sturdy, level and even with the existing bench it aimed to mimmic. I am having trouble adding a video…will update when synced…

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

15 Ft Power-Drifter Fishing Boat, "Tiger Lily" #2: Change of Plans and Doing a Jig

01-18-2016 04:22 PM by Tomato | 5 comments »

Entry on 1/18/2016: Watching some Disney this weekend I have come up with a name. She will be called, “Tiger Lily”! After getting some quotes from the lumber yard it occurred to me that, since I can’t get 4×10’s, I will have to scarf more than one joint to get the planking and board lengths for the 16.5 footer. This will add significant extra cost with a lot of waste. I decided to go to the 15’ version and, even though I’m losing about two feet o...

15 Ft Power-Drifter Fishing Boat, "Tiger Lily" #1: The plans are in!

01-15-2016 08:42 PM by Tomato | 5 comments »

Entry on 1/15/2016: Hi everyone! I am an avid steelhead fisherman in Southeast Michigan. The rivers down here are a little difficult to drift a float like I would prefer. It’s hard to get into a good hole due to lots of overgrowth on the banks and the majority of the river being private property. My solution is the Power-Drifter from Glen-L. It will allow me to slow my travel down the river, hotshot, fly fish, or drift with a spinning combo or centerpin. I will also get some good ...
