So yesterday coming back to work from lunch, I went to make a left turn, then the turn signal lever literally fell apart in my hands. Okay it’s an older car I bought used, things are going to break, but a turn signal lever literally falling ...

Came back to woodworking after ending a lousy domestic situation. I've been blessed now with the world's best wife, and a well equipped shop. Hopefully I can get back up to speed skills wise...
Wood shop for me was one of the few classes in Junior High and High School that I actually enjoyed, and looked forward to. I built a lot of projects back then, everything from coat trees and kitchen tables to convex curved gluelams for skateboards. From 1987 to 2004 my total woodworking projects consisted of building a replacement dinette table / berth base for a rented travel trailer (it was cheaper to buy the router, bits, and cheap router table and do it myself in the time I had left than it was to buy a pre made piece, when all was said and done noone could tell...) some fence repairs on my house, and a strong tie and 2x4 workbench. Since restarting I have made countless bowls, spindles, boxes, step stools, toy cars and whatnot. Only very few of them worth talking about, but I am loving it. I really only started in earnest in early 2008, and have been getting in as much shop time as I can.
I am a system administrator by day, and do woodworking and other DIY pursuits for a creative outlet and stress relief.

Okay so here’s the deal. I’ve been looking for my hole saws pretty much everywhere, for the better part of 2 weeks. I am building a custom light for photography / videography, and I need to bore some holes for light sockets. So I...
A journey into the workshop. #104: Temp has been hovering just under 100 deg F, 90+ % humidity, and this happens!
So for those considering a portable unit AC, this is mine that is about 6 years old… I need to figure out what went wrong for sure! View on YouTube Am I on the right track thinking this is a bad bearing with the shaft that spins the fans...
A journey into the workshop. #103: An unplanned fathers day gift for my father in law, starting my shop reorganization.
Okay the shop reorganization is NOT the gift for my father in law, but bear with me, this is kind of interesting… My father in law due to age, and the condition of his house, has been needing to be moved into somewhere that the extended f...
