    Matag wringer washer

    My daughter just had her wash room relocated to a much more convenient location. I thought I'd surprise her with a reminder of the way her grandmother did the wash. It is about 8 inches high and will hang on the wall

    Not Exactly Woodworking...

    ...but I never really claimed to be a real woodworker either. At least I'm finally doing something in the shop. It's been a LONG winter. So the story first: Oldest grandson will be 7 in about a month and is in the 1st grade. He joined Cub-Scouts at the beginning of the school year. His pack/troop is fairly small 9-10 kids ranging from 6-10 y/o, 1st to 4th? grades, but all from his elementary school (we have 3 in our school district). Anyways, like all good Cub Scouts Packs his is competing in the local Pinewood Derby so a while back we got the kit (well two JIC). This past Friday was the normal meeting day/time but was set aside as a Pinewood workshop. As it had been explained to me, this workshop was to discuss the basics, clarify the local rules, and if a scout wanted or needed access, cut out his car shape and then get ideas and suggestions on how to proceed. We met at the Scoutmaster's house in the workshop which is a rural setting. The workshop included several bench-top type woodworking tools (belt/disc sander, drill presses, a couple of band-saws, 8" table saw as well general hand tools. This shop once served as their truck repair shop (they operate an OTR trucking businesses, mostly grain hauling, but also some flat bed as well). Anyways, some of the dads also brought some additional tools, RO sanders, a couple more band-saws and so forth. Nine boys were in attendance along with at least one parent and a couple of grandparents. Keep in mind it's Friday evening, 6:30 PM after these little guys have been in school all week and now are out for the weekend. I don't need to tell you the level of energy these kids had. The Scout leaders finally got them corralled and quiet long enough to present the flags, Pledge of Allegiance, Scout motto's and creed before total chaos erupted. One of the Scout leaders and one of the dads were working silently at the band-saw station cutting out car shapes and another at the RO station sanding his own entry. One boy, the oldest there, was working with his dad at the weigh station; his car was mostly complete with paint. They just were drilling holes, then adding weights to get as close to the 5 oz max weight limit. IT WAS NOT SAFE FOR ANYONE TO BE AROUND ANYTHING THAT HAD MOVING, SHARP TEETH ON IT! My daughter volunteered me to help two of the leaders take a herd of boys outside that were not currently working on their cars. THEY ALL (boys) came outside. After 35 minutes, it was time to go back in to warm-up a bit. The rest of the dads pretty much had completed cutting the shapes and/or working on their own entry for the Adult class. Well, 35 minutes outside had not sapped these little guys of any of their energy the best I could tell. After about 15 minutes of complete chaos, my daughter and a couple other parents and a couple of the scout leaders herded the little critters up for Round 2 outside. I forget...did I mention IT WAS NOT SAFE FOR ANYONE TO BE AROUND ANYTHING THAT HAD MOVING, SHARP TEETH ON IT! Anyways, once all the boys were out again, I grabbed my stuff together, talked to the Scoutmaster getting all my questions answered and decided to head out while the coast was clear. A couple of the wives and one grandmother tried to convince me to stay since it was now quiet (someone finally turned off the 135k BTU oil fired salamander) but I opted out. The sames guys were at the band-saws and the one father was still weighing/balancing his kid's entry even though the kid was outside...so the parameters were established in my mind. I'd already found several patterns in PDF files on the inter-web, so I had my grandson choose his car. He also chose one for his Mom for the adult race. Yesterday & today in some spare time while we finally had a little sun and temperatures just above 50 I did this. Thanks in advance for indulgence. Basic kit which included the block of YP. Grandson chose his car from about 25 patterns I found. His car roughed out on the 10" BS. He did watch and I explained to him what/why we're doing. He was in charge of operating the shop vac. The BS had not been used for a few months. I suspect on one cut I had too tight a curve going and the blade popped off with quite a bang. We both jumped. Once I got the cover off, there was a fair build-up of saw-dust so I had him brush then vac and he cleaned it out. Next step was sanding on the OSS. He also operated the shop vac for that operation, helped me with the drum changes on the sander and I let him do a little sanding. We talked about the different drum sizes and why we used them. From there we went to the 6" disc/4x36 belt to work on the car nose a bit. He turned the sander on/off as well as the vac, but watched while I sanded. Next up I decided we needed more of a profile so set up a 5/16" round-over bit in the router table. I did let him turn the router on and off. He liked the big Off paddle. By then he wanted to know if it would be OK to go out and play with his brother while it was still daylight. I finished it up, did a little more sanding and called it an evening last night. Today, aside from my other daily duties, I started on his Mom's car. Rough cut-out on the 10" BS. No issues with the blade today. Needed to do a little "fine work" before I got out the H-F 1x30 belt sander. I had to stop at this point to PU oldest grand-daughter from tennis practice. I turned that into a 35 minute driving lesson for her which included her backing out of the parking space in front of her peers. That was fun. Once back, I had a load of laundry to finish and get in the dryer before resuming. More sanding, some chisel work then started profiling on the router table. Oldest grand-son got home from his baseball mini-camp and did come out and help sand for for a bit before dinner. After dinner, I did a little more, shut off the lights and came in. The temperature had dropped from 53o at 6 PM to 38o by 8 PM. Forgot to take any more pictures before stopping. As @steven newman says...stay tuned.

    Wow that felt good!

    We celebrate our second anniversary in this house on April 8. Yesterday, I got my table saw re assembled, hooked up and actually cut a piece of wood for the first time since we moved. My smile must have lit up the whole township. I still have a long way to go (although, the planer, jointer, RAS, and drill press are also functional) but I'm really seeing the light at the end of the tunnel now.

    Benevolant Box

    The pastor of our church asked me a couple of months ago if I would make a Benevolent "collection" Box for the church. Had to wait for the weather to warm up a bit before I could get out to the shop and not loose the feeling in my fingers. It finely warmed up to 40* so I got started on it! I had enough 1/2"BB plywood left over from another project, so that is what I used. I finished cutting all the pieces and took them down to the basement to warm up. Glued and in the clamps over night. Out of the clamps and the hardware installed. Took it over Friday morning to hang at the entrance to the sanctuary.

    Tübatulabal Cooking Basket

    The Tübatulabal are an indigenous people of the Kern River Valley area of Southern California and are related to the Aztec. The literal meaning of the name is "pine nut eaters". Stones were heated in a fire and then placed in the baskets to cook the food. This basket illusion measures 13⅝" diameter and about 3½" deep. The wood is maple. It was donated to the 2017 Christmas auction of the Woodturners of North Texas.

    It's Monday?

    Why does a week always have to start with a Monday? Shop is usually closed on Mondays.....so why not start the week on Tuesday? Anything getting done, out there? Needs a door and a small drawer, then the finish....maybe by next weekend?

    WalMart Senior Greeter

    You just have to appreciate this one. Young people forget that we old people had a career before we retired...... Charley, a new retiree-greeter at Wal-Mart, just couldn't seem to get to work on time. Every day he was 5, 10, 15 minutes late. But he was a good worker, really tidy, clean-shaven, sharp-minded and a real credit to the company and obviously demonstrating their "Older Person Friendly" policies. One day the boss called him into the office for a talk. "Charley, I have to tell you, I like your work ethic, you do a bang-up job when you finally get here; but your being late so often is quite bothersome." "Yes, I know boss, and I am working on it." "Well good, you are a team player. That's what I like to hear.” “Yes sir, I understand your concern and I’ll try harder.” Seeming puzzled, the manager went on to comment, “It's odd though your coming in late. I know you're retired from the Armed Forces. What did they say to you there if you showed up in the morning so late and so often?" The old man looked down at the floor, then smiled. He chuckled quietly, then said with a grin, "They usually saluted and said, ‘Good morning, Admiral, can I get your coffee, sir?’” give the man some respect.......

    Bandsaw carving, I can't carve due to a condition in my hands. My daughter loved it and texted me that she needed a dryer. I told her that they didn't have them back then, they dried them on the line. So I think Karen is giving her a small wall hanger quilt that is about 3 ft square

    Drawer Cabinet Under Sander

    Up Date on the cabinet under the drum sander. I finally got it done, finished the drawer fronts yesterday and were dry this morning so put them back in the cabinet and filled them up with sanding discs and belts. I don't know why the second picture is rotated, it is upright in my computer, and I took it the same way I took the rest of the pictures with my camera. This really bugs me when it does that. Herb

    Next Project?

    Hmm, for some strange reason..my hands smell like Golden Oak stain... This may be a long post, hope nobody minds... Typing and trying to eat a sammich, not the best way to do this, but here goes. Meandered to the shop..forgot camera.. meander back to the shop, had to turn these into sides and a back for a drawer.. Got these to match each other, already had fitted the drawer front into the opening.. Decided to use through dovetails, to match the large drawer Dry fit. then the groove for a plywood bottom was milled.. Even the back got a groove....back was attached via a couple screws into the ends of the sides..used a smooth plane to fit the drawer.. Dovetails sanded smooth, holes filled, knob in place, test fit? Now, the bookcase was designed to be removable, to make it easier to transport ( and get up my stairs) so I needed a pair of "cleats" installed Two countersunk screws into the top of the case, and two to hold the Bookcase in place, per cleat. These also act as drawer guides. Nailed on some pads for the feet.. Now, the reason my hands smell like Golden Oak stain..... Since I had to do the cleats, these two were set on the bench. Stain applied while they were just sitting around.. Once I got the lower cabinet done, I could set these into place where they belonged...( not blotch, GRAIN!) I also set the large drawer on the bench, wasn't much room with these two sitting there..but.. Yes, I did stain the shelves, even though they will get a pair of folding baskets on each shelf...freckled drawer? After tipping the lower case every which way to cover all the Pine....was finally able to set everything in place..ready? Well the skinny drawer does look good? And now the main event.. Waiting on the smelly stain to stop..smelling the place out, should be about dry, then. Then, a couple coats of Amber Shellac? Shop is not the best for project pictures...maybe once it gets upstairs? Stay tuned..

    We had a good and busy weekend. The Maple Island top is in the finishing room and we got the window seat top that matches glued. We also got a Cedar Green Egg table almost finished. I had to run by today and pick up the wheels and blots for the wheels. We will get the hole cut in the top tomorrow. The Frame for the wooden screen door is glued and now I’ll cut out a rabbit for the screen to fit in, them make some keepers for the screen. And I loaded some ammo this weekend and tested it today to make sure it functioned properly. 5” circles and shot at 7 yards with my 9mm. I’m in the shop now setting up the computer to run the CNC machine. I hope to get it tested this week.

    Thursday Pickings. Skimpy

    On the way to Huber heights, OH thursday..stopped at the store in Brandt, OH...spend a whopping $5 on a pair of chisel shaped objects... Skinny one is 3/4", wider one is 1''....nothing special? No handles, one has a mushroom growing on it....bend at the socket was made that way...even saw a trace of a name stamp on the bent socket... MIGHT need a bit of sharpening? Well, got busy with these two, while the stain was drying....Beltsander to remove the mushroom, and a chunk out of my knuckle...DNA on the new sander Dug out the wooden plug inside the remade socket..dug through the spare chisel drawer, and found a couple loaner handles.. Flattened the backs, got a start on the sharpening.. With the 3/4" firmer all shined up, found a name stamp on it, too. 1" wide is a UNION Hardware Company of Torrington, CONN. USA The 3/4" one? T.H. Witherby....also of Torrington, CONN, USA. It will go with the 1/2" one I have. And the 3/8" Mortise chisel... Not too bad..for $5?

    While @Cliff and I are sharing the beach in the sunny Antilles, I thought I'd get a head start on today's post. @Cliff has his vacuum chuck rig set up and running. There are lots of questions and comments about how he made this. Cliff shares his procedures in his post- @Steve Krumanaker posted images of his second "cryptex". Steve's pictures show some of the internal workings of this clever little device! @PostalTom asked a question about the usefulness of a lathe that can be operated in the reverse direction. Some suggested this was a nice feature- However, I think they may have been referring to using the lathe on this Easter Sunday. More suggestions and comments- @Gerald, in response to last week's "Wednesday's...", posted a picture of the display shelves he is getting ready for their club's booth. He also added an image of the tulips he make- Rick Turns added his February list of turning videos on YouTube. Mike Peace posted a nice little video. He needed to re-turn a baby rattle. Check out how he overcame the problem of holding the rattle. Although we had relatives visiting this past week, I managed to get to the lathe and destroy a piece I was turning- I glued the errant piece back on the waste block and sealed the turning with tape and modeling clay- Then mixed up some clear Alumilite. I find warming it in the microwave really helps lowers the viscosity so the small bubbles float to the top and it fills the crevices a little better. I need to build a pressure pot. Sure wish I kept the one I used to test underwater gauges when I had a Scuba shop. Removed the tape and clay and it's ready to back on the lathe. Safe turning

    Estate Planning

    My friend Tom was a single guy living at home with his father and working in the family business He knew that he would inherit a fortune once his sickly father died. Tom wanted two things: • To learn how to invest his inheritance. • To find a wife to share his fortune. One evening at an investment meeting, he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. Her natural beauty took his breath away. "I may look like just an ordinary man," he said to her, "but in just a few years, my father will die, and I'll inherit 20 million dollars." Impressed, the woman obtained his business card. Two weeks later, she became his stepmother. Women are so much better at estate planning than men.

    I had a tough weekend, stuffed up and feeling miserable. The meds helped me breathe but also made me meaner than a junk yard dog. My wife told me so. I had plans to work in the shop, but had a foot of snow last night. Normally I would groan and complain about clearing away the walk and drive. However we have not had any significant precip in months. Things were so dry everyone was worried about fires. Some ski areas didn't have enough snow to stay open. The sun is shining hot and the temp is 45. I plan to watch it melt, not to shovel it off

    Gene you just happen to remind me of my last mistake.. When installing biscuits in my last glue up for that last clock I cut the slots three fourths of the way down in the 1 1/8" maple. This way while digging out chunks of wood, I guess for the true artist I should use the correct definition of the carving steps, so I might say while carving deep canyons, I would not run in to the biscuits and have different woods and glue to worry about later... so installing the biscuits almost down to the bottom of the wood was a brilliant idea!!!!! But then later when it come time to start the caving process I could not tell which side of the board was which...So in my dismay I quickly started digging out biscuits all over the wood. Some how in my preparation I had wrote UP on both sides of the board.... So being a true artist, all the biscuits that ended up on top of the finished area of the clock are all still there in plain sight ....I even highlighted a couple of the most obvious ones. Gluing up wood and doing a doctors appointment was the same day and little thoughts were shooting through my little brain especially after he expressed all the bad things that could happen to the patient while asleep on the operating table...The worst since he would be down there working with his sharp little knives would be to accidentally cut my little thingy off..... Then after I woke up my wife made the comment , oh look the doctor has stuck a long arrow in to the top of your little thingy. Then my daughter said and look at the end of the arrow for it is sticking in to a bag of poison for the tip of the arrow.....Not a happy camper when all the contestants are making fun of your little thingy and too groggy to jump up and defend yourself.

    Astute (But True) Observations

    Astute (but true) Observations There are two sides to every divorce: Yours and dipsticks The closest I ever got to a 4.0 in college was my blood alcohol content. I live in my own little world, but it's OK. Everyone knows me here. I saw a very large woman wearing a sweatshirt with "Guess" on it. I said, "Left Tackle?” I don't do drugs. I find I get the same effect just by standing up really fast. I don't like political jokes. I've seen too many get elected. The most precious thing we have is life, yet it has absolutely no trade-in value. If life deals you lemons, make lemonade. If life deals you tomatoes, make Bloody Mary’s. Shopping tip: You can get shoes for a buck at bowling alleys. Every day I beat my previous record of consecutive days I've stayed alive. No one ever says, "It's only a game!" when their team's winning. Marriage changes passion . . . suddenly you're in bed with a relative. Why is it that most nudists are people you don't want to see naked? Snowmen fall from Heaven unassembled. Now that food has replaced sex in my life, I can't even get into my own pants. I signed up for an exercise class and was told to wear loose fitting clothing. If I HAD any loose fitting clothing, I wouldn't need the freakin' class! Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference. Wouldn't you know it! Brain cells come and brain cells go, but FAT cells live forever. Why is it that our children can't read a Bible in school, but they can in prison.

    I made these a few years ago I don't believe I ever shared 'em. back story I was jonesing to try hand cutting DTs but was off put with the cost of a decent saw. So I got some sheet rock mudding tools and scrounged up some hardware I had a couple of real nice drawer slides from the 1960s made for the computer industry and military and some bronze bushings and all-thead and I had a gear reduced Dayton motor and the base from an old lamp and a stub axle from an old car and set about to convert an unused plywood stand I'd built for something else but no longer used. The result was a reciprocating machine a lot like an old school die filer. It held a little itty bitty file and went up and down on steel rods in guide bearings It was served by the drawer slides mounted to more steel rods and guide bearings and all thread creating a little X-Y table for the sheet rock mudding tool blades. I uses 1/4-20 all thread for the Cross feed so I could turn very a very precise 0.020" per revolution ERGO 20 TPI saw toothing,. I built it so I could change out all thread and get different pitches. And Hot Dawg if it didn't work a trice. All that and I got two rather nice saws that I use an awful lot I learnes a few things about how to mount a handle to a blade. Get it wrong and the blade Jams to a dead stop and won't budge for love or money. Feels like it's nailed in place. It's just the angle of the pressure of the hand pushing.

    Drawer Cabinet Under Sander

    Gerald the stand is sloped both ways. I built the case ends with the slopes toward the center of the drawers. Then I framed it out inside the case straight up and down so that the drawers are the same width. The front of the drawer box slopes about 5 deg. towards the back, that makes the drawer front close flat to the face of the cabinet. Since the case slopes front to back, and back to front the top being smaller than the base, the drawers have to graduated in length, i.e. the bottom draw is deepest and the top drawer is shallowest. Also had to have 3 different length drawer slides. Herb

    Next Project?

    Ah yes....one of the joys of being RETIRED...is I do NOT have to pay anyone to do my "work". I do NOT have anyone working for me. I can build what I want, however I want, with whatever tools I choose. No real deadlines to meet. Don't have to sell anything. It also tends to keep me out of the bars. Plus, IF anyone picks up any tips from how I do things, and even uses them...so much the better. That is the other reason I do these "Build-along" projects. When Malcolm/Larry retires, then we'll see how he works....for me, I am just having fun, and trying not to get bored.

    Weather turned nasty, Boss changed her mind about going out....got bored ( dangerous?) and tried a little shop time Needed to cut this down a bit. Didn't want to drag the circular saw out...this saw should do the trick... Not enough hands right at the end...at least it cuts straight. Marked it for another cut.. This thin strip I can do on the bandsaw. Somehow got the shelf unit onto the bench... Bead of glue along this edge, a few screws. Turn this around, pipe clamp to pull things square, add one screw. Clamps to pull the sides together, add more screws.. Back is done. Set this aside, cut some corners.. 1/2 pint can for the radius. Bandsaw to cut the corners round. Then decided which face looked the best, and added a cove detail.. Sanded the "H" out of this. Set up to do some counterbores.. From one "Vintage" drill to another... Counter bores and pilot holes. Attached the top with a few screws. Had to make four more plugs...installed 8 if'n you are looking for the cove..it is on the underside....unless you are 6'8" + you will not see this area.... Maybe I can attach the face frame in the morning? Then start on a door? stay tuned
