The shop is not finished but it is operational again. I need to use the space for a project I have going right now. I still have plenty of work ahead to finish it. I can wait on floor cabinets and worktop but the upper cabinets or at least some open cubby boxes to store glue, sandpaper, routers, etc. are a must. Clamp storage on the wall will clear a good bit of floor space. I did not have to buy hardly anything to do this work, it was material that I had on hand. I have many more id...
Sunday, 10 Feb ‘08 Finished mudwork on walls. Took Sunday nap.Painted 2 coats of primer. Trim and paint to follow on Monday. Touch-ups and moving on Tuesday Peace, Love, and Shop Building
One Section Finished I finished this section of wall the other day and the trim. After that I pushed all the shop “furniture” back against the wall. This opened up the center of the shop again so that I could clear the next section of wall to be finished. I can’t always work corner to corner because I waited until I put too much crap in the shop to finish the walls. I did, however, already have 3 walls finished as you can see in my workshop posting. Now that I...
The Excitement Builds… Today I finished touching up the mud work and applied 2 coats of primer. It is very exciting to see things get further along in my own shop Tomorrow I will paint this section of wall. Peace, Love, and Woodworking
Back in Big Sky Country! I have been home about three weeks now and I have been quite busy settling back in. I am so happy to be back with my wife, Rita, and my two dogs. The geography here is so good to see again. Here is the view out my backyard towards the Yellowstone River. The first thing I had to do was unpack and start settling back into my life at home and in my shop. I have been working for most of the last 4 1/2 years just north of Columbus, OH on some great projects. B...
It has taken me too long to get pictures of my shop up here and there is so many things to post that I decided to do it in a blog. I’ll add a couple more as I can. The Unisaw is not included as it is in a separate blog. http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/KevinHuber/blog/3282 The workshop can be viewed at http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/KevinHuber/workshop I will show a few pictures of my tools and of a couple parts of the shop. My shop is going to be getting a complete make over in the ...
After years of building my projects in basements, I’m finally building my own shop. This building will be a three level shop building (including the attic). The main (middle) level will be my woodshop and the basement will be my tractor garage/shed/auto shop. The project is far behind schedule and way over budget, but aren’t they all? The foundation is 25’ wide by 30’ deep giving me just under 750 sq/ft of woodshop. It’s never enough, but it would be very hard to...
Hello and welcome to my first Blog! The intent of this blog is to track my entrance into the world of woodworking. There seems to be a gap between the people who are just getting into woodworking, and those who have been enjoying the hobby for ten years. So, this is my attempt to fill some of that gap. You’ll get to watch me make mistakes, buy some bad tools, and hopefully you’ll learn from my mistakes. First off is my mission statement, the “why am I doing this?”...
Since I was a kid I have been fairly good at imagining stories and being able to put some of that down on paper. My mom at one point tried to encourage me into a carrier as a creative writer. One thing stopped me and it bugs me to this day. I am horrible with names. Not just remembering them, but making them up. So, it can be no surprise to tell you that it has taken me a while to decide on what I am going to call my little side business. My wife and I talked through several different...
I just put this into this series to tie things together, but it’s not in the proper order, so bare with me.. Hi,Today, 6/21/2007, I changed the name on this blog, so members could find it easier. Things sure get haphazard, & messed up when you by a new piece of equipment, especially when you’re cramped for space. I bought a new planer about a year ago, & I’ve been in a tangle ever since. The first thing I had to do was rearrange all my power tools. After tha...
