  • Work/assembly table in progress

    Ever since 3 years ago when I got a bigger shop, I've wanted a bigger work table.  My old one was just a bit too small to hold the linen cabinets, dressers, bookcases, and bunk beds that I've made over the last 5 years.  I have a nice Tage Frid design Euro-workbench that I made when I was first getting serious in woodworking.   It's fine, but too small for much assembly work.   My objectives were: 1. 4x8 top, or close to it to hold the tall and wide projects that seem to be coming

    Carport upgrade

    With my deck refurb in the finishing painting stage I can now work on next outside project.  For whatever reason the rest of the house has vinyl siding and soffits, but he carport seems to have been left out.  For many years I have just painted it, but now I just want the vinyl soffit and be done with it.  Of course while I am at it a few upgrades are in order.   First up is a improvement to the lighting.  When it rains or I need to work after dark the carport offers the best place and

    Enough rehab, back to making sawdust

    What the title says.    Wasn't without some troubles, but..made a start. had some "Project Boards" from Lowes...supposed to be Pine, seems closer to Poplar... Decided to pick out the best 2, and build a box....1/2" x 6" x 24" boards.  Issues? Well, that Stanley #358 mitre box had a problem... test cut in the new location showed this to be a "Weeble Saw"   Wobbled all over the place in the cut.   Pull the saw out, turned the frame over...not only the King bolt was

    Shellac lb cut?

    I want a sanding sealer and decided to check the web for the home made variety. I see where shellac will work OK. However this puzzled me.   "As for a sanding sealer, I usually just use shellac. Typically a 1 lb cut."   Does he mean diluted 50%? (with alcohol?)

    Education

    Education One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community.

We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor. Research Do you love researching? Do you like to write about subjects in a factual non-biased style?

    • Cleveland Clinic Red Coat plaque
      Sometimes you meet someone who touches your life, and you want to do something for them. Jim Abraham is one of those individuals.
      I met Jim at the Cleveland Clinic as I was getting my treatments for prostate cancer. Jim is a professional magician and volunteers at the Clinic and always greeted us with a smile, and performed magic tricks for the patients. I asked for a business card so I could get an idea for creating a carving for him.
      Thank you Jim for making our daily visits so pleasurable.
