My favorite "Push Blocks"

02-09-2011 04:54 PM by HungryTermite | 5 comments »

At times I tend to just wander around Home Depot. I always think that the solution to the problem at hand has been solved somewhere before so I just wander the store and try to see as many different things as I can looking for ideas. Every once in a while I find something interesting. It’s a good way to kill some time even if the employees start to look at me funny. While I was in the grout area I noticed some red rubber grout floats. I figured it looked just like a little oran...

Building our own washer, dryer pedestals. #1: Cutting out parts, & starting assembly.

03-15-2010 06:29 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 22 comments »

We recently purchased a new washer, & dryer, & we didn’t want to spend $400 for the factory pedestals, so I’m making my own. They should cost us about $75 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~This is the factory made pedestal~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The front load machines are kind of low without a pedestal. It makes it kind of tough on the back muscles.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~...

Building our own washer, dryer pedestals. #3: FINALLY DONE AND WASHING CLOTHES ( Edited 02/05/2011)

04-19-2010 11:51 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 23 comments »

I thought it was about time I posted the completed project. With help from my Son we grunted the machines up in place. They look good, & work real well. The pedestals are good, & solid. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It’s sure nice not to have to bend over to load, & unload now. I edited this on 02/05/2011 I changed to stationary non-swivel casters, but after that I had the problem of them slipping side to side on the sm...

Simple Band Saw Fence

11-01-2012 03:37 AM by arco21 | 9 comments »

I decided it was high time I quit clamping a piece of wood to my bandsaw table whenever I needed a fence, and upgraded to something more easily adjustable. Based on a design for a drill press fence in a recent Woodsmith Small Shops book, I came up with this cleat style fence. I used 2×4’s for the front and back rails, putting the 45 degree angle on them with my table saw. I bolted them to the existing threads on my bandsaw’s fence. The fence is a piece of cherry, and t...

Toot, Toot, Tootorial #3: How to make a whistle on a router table

06-09-2010 08:48 PM by Mary Anne | 38 comments »

Sorry about the delay in posting this tutorial of the series. I ran into some technical difficulties… which is another way of saying I sometimes have the attention span of a gnat and messed things up the first time around. Speaking of messing things up, I’ve injured my knee and have to stay off my feet for a few days. I am only on day two and already going crazy. All in all, it looks a good time for going on with this toot toot tootorial series. —...
