Like I mentioned in my post Stay Tuned , I have been traveling for some time. So, why Mexico? Why not Africa, Asia, The Americas or Europe? Well, I am just going to tell you why Mexico and from there you can dissect the reasons why I did not move to the other places. Reason #1. SportsOnce I finally get a bi-weekly video going on, you will hear me bring up Liverpool, Mexico futbol, American football, WRC and F1 from time to time. Mexico gives me access to all these sports on the tele. Th...
This is my first entry and I am just starting out with wood working. For Christmas I had started making my fiancé a painters pallet. She is an artist and I wanted to make something aestheticly pleasing but also functional. I thought this would be a simple enough first project. I purchased a price of black walnut, kiln dried with a live edge. It’s a beautiful piece of wood. I mapped out my cups and began chiseling. All was well for a while but I don’t have the best tools as I ...
My wife follows shanty-2-chic.com and saw some wall sconces on the website. She decided that she wanted to make them so she asked me to help. I cut the wood and installed keyhole hangers. She did everything else. The vases are old spaghetti jars spray painted gold. The foliage is from Walmart. Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fatBOlTorD8 Here is the project my wife saw on shanty-2-chic: http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/2015/03/diy-wine-bottle-wall-sconce.html

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, ...
RUMORS OF MY DEMISE WERE SOMEWHAT EXAGGERATED when a friend of mine recently said, “No seriously! They said your were dead!” Apparently a Veteran’s Group I used to attend just figured I kicked the bucket and told my friend I was dead. I don’t think this is true, but I am asking for a second opinion. I wanted to give an update to my LJ friends. Woodworking is still my therapy of choice. The problem right now is one of energy and safety. My cancer has gotten much w...

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...

Please like, share, and if you enjoyed the video subscribe! http://youtu.be/KIjZJoHwwB4 My solution to storing my sandpaper was not ideal. As you can see in the pictures, the paper has curled from the previous storage method. I make a simple tray style rack to store each grit of paper separately. Materials: MDF, Hardboard, Glue, Label Maker Construction Methods: Rabbits, and grooves, glue. I filmed the build on my YouT...
