  2. If you have WIFI dead zones in your house this may be a solution. The WIFI router supplied by our internet provider isn't the most robust so, I've never been able to get a WIFI signal in the shop. Even though, the shop is only about 100' from the router. Several different types and brands of extenders were tried and returned. Thank you Amazon. I finally happened on to this TP-LINK AV500 range extender that uses your house wiring as a transmission medium, thereby eliminating problems caused by walls, metal studs, distance, etc. There are two components, an "adapter" that is connected to the router and plugged in to a nearby electrical socket, and the "extender", plugged in to a socket located in or near your dead zone. It's optimum if both sockets are on the same circuit. In my case, I used a socket in a wall closest to the shop. It's not on the same circuit but, it works. Now, I have WIFI in the shop.
  3. New here and thought I would post some pictures of my shop while I'm in between projects. I really enjoy this site.
  4. Shop Sign

    From the album from honesttjohn's Lab

  5. I had live music in my shop this past Saturday! Our youngest daughter was studying on the dining room table for her AP History exam, our oldest daughter wanted to practice at the same time, scholastic's take priority over all in our home, even over good music, so our oldest girl needed a place with her friend to practice for an open mic event that same night at a local music store that holds open sessions on Saturdays. They asked if they could come out and practice while I work. I turned off my radio and opted for live. Hey, free live music while I work! What more can ya ask for! Typically I don't like things on my table saw, I'll make an exception, this time. This a just a warm up they were doing to have fun. Cynthia is our oldest daughter, on violin, and her "boyfriend" is on geeetar. He's an ok kid, took me a loooong time to accept it, but he's alright. Her first, they been seeing each other since their Jr. year in high-school and they are equally yoked. They are both wrapping up their freshman year in college. Good kids. She plays in her college symphony, quartet, and symphony choir, she is well studied in classical, but her favorite to play all day long, is Appalachia.
  6. While waiting on the lumber supplies to arrive, thought I'd take you along on a $0.05 tour of the place.. basically what I see after the stumble down the steps to the shopMay try to get a better picture, sometime... Turn a bit to the left....that "blue" thing is the trash bag for the shop. Have to watch out, if you look too long at the bandsaw, you might trip over.. This thing, as it sits right by the steps, right above it? Most of the shop's screwdrivers and nut drivers. Looking past the shelf unit, you can see.. Shop has a dresser. Walk towards this, past the bandsaw.. Bit of a mess. Old tabletop sitting on a pair of sawhorses, the original workbench for the shop. 1 x 6 is to keep things from walking off the edge of the shelf. Also a place to sit the shop stool.. Old vise, and an older grinder. Grinder has a tool rest for sharpening tools on. C clamp is to help the grinder stay put. besides all the screws. Turn to the right, and look up a tad.. Spare handplanes, a drill needing a battery, sanders, and my drill press. "Door" is an old storm widow for the house. Welcome to the main work area.. We found an old dresser down here, when we moved in. Makes a nice place for the tils, and a place to stow the hammers and such. The bench.. 90% of the work get done right about here. Yes, that is a pipe clamp leg vise. next a look at the "overhead" of the shop.. A few extra saws, coping saw, hacksaws , clamps. Yellow plastic thingy is for nasty, dirty, recycled lumber. To the left.. A second til for drills, mainly eggbeater, and ready-use braces. I keep a 6" brace set up with a countersink bit, and hang it up where I can grab it easily. I'd clean the shavings up, but the Momma Cat just had her kittens back in there. That be the nickel tour, maybe someday I'll figure a way to do a video of the place.... Hope you enjoyed the show
  7. Pull all junk out of shop and rearrange machines: One month Haul off scrap metal:
  8. Ok, FINALLY got a little ME time in the shop. Started off by moving a couple tool benches out of the way, just until a new spot for them can be set up.. Crowded spot. I cleaned the floor where these were, and got things ready to move... Getting better. The black thing to the lower right, is the trash bag. I had to pull the tool chest out, and slide it towards the trash bag, so the bench could take the place of the chest. Chest was headed to the wall.. Small bandsaw inbetween. Router table is now beside the lathe. The bench is for the BIG Mitre Box.. Backed up to the back of the workbench. bad when you need a rake to clean a floor....even the broom is worn out. Shop Cat tried to help out, by guarding the trash bag.. Soo, now I have room to work back there, I can even turn around! Maybe I can get back to do some woodworking? Since the HUGE Mitre Box is out of my way.......when I get the "dresser" built, that old dryer will be going out the door. Now, IF I can find someone to haul that heavy trash bag up the steps......
  9. shop cabinets

    in the shop why do you use overlay or inset cabinet doors or drawers? In my case inset is the perfection of the cabinetry mountain. Overlay is allowed for less that perfection. But does overlay seal the cabinet or drawing better then inset for dust issues?
  10. Shop cleaning

    Well I set out this afternoon to do some cleaning in the shop and this is how far I got. Anyone else have days like this?
  11. Just thought I'd post some images of the ol shop before 2016 closes out. This way next year I can look back and compare it a year later. You never know what may happen. Nothing lasts forever, except this forum community! From our shop to yours, Happy New Year's folks!
  12. Dad couldn't make it to our Thanksgiving dinner, he was feeling under the weather and the drive down the mountain would have been a tad precarious, as he was feeling dizzy from the medications he's on. So we told him not to fret, we'll bring him some Thanksgiving the next day. My wife packed up a nice care package of food for him, and my son and I headed up the mountain with his food. We like going up there, it's the mountains. I thought I'd share with you all my Dad's place, it's a neat home, situated up on a ridge over looking some wonderful scenery. Dad showed us some of the bird houses he's been working on. These are his creations that he will sell locally at the gift shops and to individuals as well. Here is pops, with my son, his grandson. Dad lives a nice no nonsense life, he's been a bachelor for about 45 years, he doesn't have much room for the frilly stuff, he uses that stove to heat his home, and when the electricity goes out, he'll put a pot of stew up on that old stove. Since his appliances are all electrical, when the power goes out, it's the stove! He has some birdhouses sitting on the side waiting to be painted, he paints them in his home where it's nice and warm. Don't worry, the stove aint on right now, the paint is fine! Here is a view from the front of his home. This is looking out the window at the stove area. He has birdhouses all over his property, he built this wind screen a few years back and put a bird house atop it. By the way, the dog is Suzy, his Beagle, best friend, and profound varmint hunter. Dad standing in front of the shop he and I built back in 2005. This is where he'll hang most of the day, building, inventing, and just staying out of trouble. This day, I have never seen his shop look so clean, he typically has about a half foot of shavings and dust on the floor. Here's a shot of his cutoff table and general work bench. An ol Unisaw we picked up at a garage sale, and we outfitted it with a Biesmeyer. His assembly table for the birdhouse and other crafts and woodworking. His ol Delta scroll saw. Old Craftsman band saw, I gotta tell ya guys, this ol saw has a ton of features on it, I can't name them right now, but I remember there were just some really cool things going on with this old saw. Another shot of his work bench and wall. He uses this PC belt sander to shape and smooth edges with. Here is a neat view looking out of his shop to the front. Dad's home, an ol single wide built in the 60's. We've had a ton of fun, in this old home. My dad and I lived in a trailer a third of the size of this one throughout my teens up to the point I joined the Army. After I ETS'd out of the Army, I returned to live for a while longer in our trailer till I was steadily on my feet. Dad was and is always there for me. Some more of his birdhouses. These stairs he made from leftovers he found around the neighborhood, they get us down to the lower level of his property. My dad does things like this, he'll build for minimum needs, and it works! He is a true minimalist. Here is a nice image of his home, with the shop. A couple more birdhouses he built Thanks for following along my pictorial of my dad's place and his shop. There isn't much he can't do. He's from the old school of thought, and I love him dearly for it. His philosophy is "use only what I need, nothing more nothing less". I have seen him stretch a pot of stew over 5 days, and make a 20 dollar bill last a week. He was raised on the farm in New York and his family later moved into the city of Aurora ILL. where his dad blue-collared a life. My dad served in the Navy, he was a corpsman stationed in San Diego's Balboa Medical Hospital in the late 50's. He's just a great ol soul, I love him.
  13. Got to the point that all those spiders were taking over the shop.....webs everywhere looking like Grandpa Munster's shop. Read somewhere a long time ago that stashing hedge apple fruit in the corners of a room will drive away all the spiders......dad used to have one or two in the basement at his house. Road trip to see the doctor in Sidney, OH.....discovered a grove of the Hedge apple trees along side the roadway. Stopped and picked up a few off the ground. All three are now in the shop...maybe spidey will leave the building? Anyone else hear about them hedge apples vs spiders?
  14. Colonial Williamsburg Joiners Shop

  16. Yikes, Staple in My Finger!

    Found this on Facebook and I just had to share, enjoy, I did!
  17. Rain and Rain and Rain has continued here almost everyday. But as it looks, next week we get a cold front and cooler temps and NO rain. Between the rain I have been working as much as possible on the shop expansion so I can get it in the dry as soon as possible. Beth helped me on Saturday and we got the top caps one all the walls and finished the headers and framed out the two windows. I had hoped we would get a bit more done, but you guessed it, it started raining and had to stop. So this morning before it got too hot and started raining I got the foam sheathing on the walls. But it heated up quickly and it got to 92 by lunch so I took a break. I need to cut some of the foam boards and put them around the top and then tape off all the joints. Making progress and if we get NO rain next week, I hope to get the Rafters up so I can get it in the dry. Windows and doors are due in this week. More to come later....
  18. As I said, with the heat and humidity here, I have been working a little and cooling and resting a lot on this. My son and wife have both helped at times but for the most part I have been by myself on this one. Today I got the last of the interior walls framed and in place. I have left off the last two studs closest to the building so I would have a walkway while working on it. Keeps me from having to go all the way around each time I need something. The room on the west end of the building will be a finishing room. There will be a set of French Doors here and I will open up a window on the front side. I want to let in as much natural light as possible. When it is closed in there will be a double door coming into the room from inside the shop. So I can move from assemble to finishing and then out the double door for delivery or pickup. The room here in the middle will be for lumber staging and house the Dust Collector and Air Compressor. I want to get them located out of the shop for noise and dust reasons. The room on the end will be an office. A place to keep paperwork and to meet with clients when they come by without having to sit on a stool in the sawdust of the shop. And as things seem to go, the doors and windows were ordered and came in today. Both sets of French Doors were damaged and they are sending new ones. I wasn't really ready yet anyway so it won't hold me up right now. I will need a couple of good cooler, dry days to start on the roof. I will open up the roof to the shop to attach the rafters to the current ones. Don't want to leave it open too long and get rain in the shop. So till the next update, this is what I have so far.
  19. After over a year of waiting the shop expansion is finally underway. About a month ago which was a year later, I got the footings dug so we could ready to pour them and the concrete slab all at the same time. I had to move my electrical going to the shop before the footing and slab could be done so I got that done and a new box in the shop to give me more circuits and additional power. So with the footings dug, I could finally get the concrete guy lined up and thankfully he was where he could get right on it and pour the footings and slab all in one pour. After it started to setup, they got on it and put a smooth finish on the concrete so it will make a nice shop floor. Also installed the "j" bolts to anchor the walls to the concrete. Today all the material got delivered so we can get started framing the walls. Of course the weather has gone super hot now. It is in the upper 90's with about 80% humidity so we have weather you can wear. I got out and worked for a while and got all the old vinyl siding off so I can start framing the walls. On the end where the door is will be my office. In the middle will be a lumber or scrap wood storage area. It will have double doors to get into from the outside. On the left side will be the finishing room. About 12'x12'. It will have french doors coming in from the end and windows on this side so we get lots of natural light in the room. Once I am framed up and in the dry I will open access from the inside of the shop to the storage and finishing room. I'll update you further as I move along in the southern heat!
  20. Repairs in the Shop

    It will be a short week in the shop. We head out to Indiana on Thursday. Trying to finish a couple of repairs before we leave. Rocking chairs seem to be finding their way to my shop. I have two on the bench to be repaired. One is just a glue up. Seems the old glue just gave way and it separated. It is now in the clamps and should be out of here today. The other one has a broken rocker. They watch the Gorilla Glue commercials and tried to repair it. Even Gorilla Glue will not hold a broken rocker. So I am making two new rockers for this one. I had an old coffee table brought in that a piece of the mahogany veneer had gotten pulled loose in a move. Thankfully they saved the piece and brought it with them. Got it glued back in place and fit as best as it would go together. Hope you all have a fun week in your shop.
  21. John's Shop

    From the album John's Shop

    This is a shot of my shop looking in, from our driveway. This was a nice evening, things just felt right, and I walked off and out of my shop, looked back, and snapped this picture. I think it looks pretty cool. If you blow the image up, see the end of my workbench, one of my kids left some artwork on the surface.
  22. What is in your shop

    I was looking at the pictures submitted of guys shops. Each is unique and tailored to each person. However, I am wondering what your shop has in it for music or entertainment as you work. I like the older music. I use an old iPad to listen to web music radio stations. What do you have? Anyone have a TV? Do you have a napping chair? I do. It didn't start out that way. My wife got a free chair, a leather desk, but she didn't like it. I kept it in my shop till we could get rid of it. However, once I sat down in it, it cuddled me like a bear and put me to sleep. Now it is my permanent companion
  23. Wood Turning Shop

    From the album Hindy's Projects

  24. This weekend we took out one of the old garage doors and replaced it with a regular door. As I get ready for the shop expansion, the entrance door was on the side of the shop. When we dig all of that out and the get ready and pour concrete I wasn't going to have a way in and out of the shop without raising the garage door. Long story, but it was going to be way too much trouble and the door was in bad shape anyway. So the old door came out and we Josh and I framed up and install a new door to the shop from the front. When I a ready to open the side up and attach the new addition, I will take down the siding over there and put on the front, so this is just temporary for now. We set to the door off center so it will give you a straight path into the shop. Also as I bring in a long board, it will come straight in and be in line with the SCMS. So no turns and or twist or spinning the board around to get it on the saw. Also when we are bring a finished project out now, it will come straight out and we don't have to go around the side of the shop to come out and then turn back into the driveway. So it is not happening as fast as I would like, but we are getting there. We had a couple of days of good weather and the hole was starting to dry up, but there is rain in the forecast today so we will be further delayed. we will get there soon though, I am sure.
  25. Here is a new panoramic view of the shop taken the other night.
