  1. This is awesome! Probably the best portable vise I've seen.
  2. Does anyone have any plans (here we go again) for a portable or knock down spray booth? Small projects that can be sprayed from an aerosol can are no problem, but sometimes I would like to be able to use a spray gun on larger projects. My shop is in the basement, so I would need a way to capture or exhaust the fumes safely. This would be in a hobbyist, and not a production scenario. And no, I have not yet checked out local zoning issues, I would do that before implementing a system that seems viable.
  3. Had a little fun, a nice break from my chair build and finally did something to benefit the shop, I just happened on a simple hand saw till by Lee Valley and on a whim I decided, what the heck, I have some scrap, and a little time, and a few saws that are currently hanging on nails on my wall. They need a home, and I liked the idea that it sits on french cleats and I can remove it and have it nearby where I am working, if needed, I seriously doubt it, my shop is small enough that a little 10 walk to the wall where the till is hanging, aint gonna kill me. Anyway, I had some scrap prefinished maple ply from a project I did last summer for my day job. You can see the ply I had to work with on that project, the scrap I have today came from that job. This is not an in depth how-to like my chair topic is, this was just a quick down and dirty fun thing I did, and I used my Shopsmith for 100 percent of the work. I used the Table Saw, the Band Saw, the Lathe and the Drill Press to build this handy little tote. I turned the 1" dowel from some walnut I had. On a side note, our dog Woody, last year he turned deaf, before he hardly ever hung out in the shop, he didn't like the noise, not just machinery noise, the hammer, a piece of wood dropping, anything. I am sorry he went deaf, but as a neat byproduct of him going deaf, he hangs with me all day in the shop now, he'll lay down right next to that Shopsmith when it's running, he can't hear anything! I have the sides and the dowel mounted, I just need to mount the kerfed blade holders, I have the longer holder for the longer saws, and the two slot holder for the two smaller saws, that holder needs to be mounted a bit lower to accommodate the small saws. My longer saws are neat ol saws, two cross cut and two rip, the first long one with the shiny handle was a gift from oldest daughter 3 Christmas's ago. I recently purchased the two smaller Lie Nielsen Carcass and Dovetail saws. The walnut is sanded to 400, once I get the kerfed supports mounted I'll just hit it with oil and call it good. Then I'll mount the french cleats on the back and on the wall to hang it. The first saw is a nice Disston D-9 12 tpi. I'll put some maple edging on the maple ply back board. Attached hereon are the plans from Lee Valley for this till. Very simple, down and dirty. I have 5 or 6 other saws hanging around, the ones in this till are my favorites, the other saws I'll sell or give away, I only want to keep what I need, I am not into collecting. Thank you Lee Valley! Lee Valley Saw Till.pdf

  5. I'm on the election board in our county and last week my cohort from the other side of the aisle sent me a text with a picture of a portable wine table. She asked if I could make her two of them so I made a prototype and then five more. The table is designed for portability but she wanted to know if I could fabricate a patio stand with it. Hopefully, they'll sell at my summer shows. One of the pictures shows the table upside down so that the spike on the bottom is visible. Carry the thing to your favorite venue by the handle in the top and stick it in the ground. A group of the "Golden Girls" of my high school graduating class travel to various parts of the country in the summer seeking out wineries to explore. They jokingly asked if I could make one that would hold two bottles because simply wasn't enough. That should tell you a bit about my high school days, let alone my college experience.
