  1. Nothing special. Just Tinker Town.
  2. When I retired many years ago, I built on to the side of my shop and added another 12'x32'. It was divided into three rooms, one being an office. I had intended to put a door on the office to keep the noise and dust out since that is where my computer and 3D printer lived. So I finally got around to building the door sometime back. It is on a barn style rail and the rail is mounted inside the office. I build the door out of a lot of the pieces I had left over from cutting boards I made and thought it would be cool if the door looked like some of my cutting boards. The top has double pain tempered glass so I can see out if someone were to come into the shop while I was in the office. Don't like surprises. Frame of the door is Cherry and the trim around the door and the window are Hickory. I still have a few things to tidy up and need to put down the threshold.
  3. I was perusing a Facebook group for Blacksmith Shops around the world, and just like any trade/hobby, you have purists, the in-between's, and the moderns. This fellow is a purist where the only electricity used in the shop is for his ceiling lamp. What I found fascinating about this mans blacksmith shop, is he talks about the reason he chose a dirt floor for his shop. And it makes sense, man was made to walk on dirt, and he states that this floor is much easier on his feet and body. And there are other benefits as well, like a dropped piece of sandwich, just crush it into the dirt! One of the drawbacks is, he may sometimes drop wax coated iron on the floor, and the wax has to be removed and reapplied. I love a purist in hand work.
  4. Finally moving into a new shop. I am moving out of the small blue building into the large building with the red roof. It is going to be a long process but well worth it.
  5. Hey folks, just saw this online by a fellow who I guess is just a shopper in Texas, and was impressed by this structure for $16,000. Could we build one less expensive? Sure. But the point he is making, delivery and set up included, it's not a bad price I think? If you have the property, and you want a quick solution to a shop or mom n law quarters or? And of course you have the funding available. If you made this into liveable space, I think the overall cost could get up there. But what if you just wanted to insulate and Pine T&G the walls or drywall and make it a woodworking shop, most of us could do the electrical ourselves, so really it may not be that bad of a price for a shop. For many here it would be too small with all your machinery and stuff, but for many of us it would be just right? What do you all think?
  6. Shop tips that can still be put to use today as seen in 1968 Workbench Magazine.
  7. Due to space limitations I take my shop out to the driveway…
  8. well here is the shop, daughter #2 showed me how, my my its so simple, lol, hope i don't forget how. pic one is from south side, you can see the re located chop saw, gonna build base cabinets in length of about 10 ft and a few uppers above. #2 is from in front of lathes, you can see the baker racks we use for parts and drying racks. also above the clean room (8x20) you can see the mezanine where i store a lot of exotic lumber. #3, is a shot from table saw to rear door, orange cabinet holds a mini mill, and to the left you can hardly see is a grill covering a metal lathe, ( i dable making old, old gun parts) #4 corner where the band saws, drill presses, you can see a groove jig , this one i got right, worked out. #5 shot from by the orange cabinet jointer, 15 inch planer and table sw in pictures #6 see old router table attached to a mech box, its gonna go away later this week, and general work space, #7 The new router able, hope to have up and running later this week now that i know how to post pics, i'll throw some up once in a while rj in az
  9. I cleaned my shop today. I got four loader buckets of chips and two loader buckets of cut-offs. Didn’t realize it was that bad.
  10. Well it has been a crazy project building a shop and actually starting to set it up so I can make things. There is an ever-increasing list of to-do’s but I am at a point where it is workable. I started with the hard problems… Actually building a shop, but this gave me the opportunity to make sure that power, heating/cooling etc… were all in place. Now I am on to the little things like shop layout, dust collection, tooling, organization, jigs, and storage solutions interspersed with actually making things for around the house. I am sure there will be many more updates as things get whipped into shape around here
  11. Just how I left my shop Easter weekend, mama came down with Covid Easter night, barely stepped foot in shop since, I'm tooling around now in the shop, kind of enjoying myself, the last 5 weeks has been all about others, I'm just standing here in the middle of the garage, thanking God I still have my wife, and my son roared back to health too. And the shop is here, waiting for me.
  12. I've been working on a project to reorganize and refit my workshop over the last several weeks. Here are the results along with the new ShopSmith Mark 7 that replaced most of my stationary tools. Panning clockwise from the far right corner. While it's true that a project like this can never be truly finished, this is better than it's been in a long time. .40
  13. So this may be a long one, and if posted in the wrong forum, feel free to relocate. My life has been very busy for the last year. I’m still working on one set of friends addition (end is in sight, but the garage hasn’t even been framed yet, I do the electrical). I went on vacation as of 3:00 pm yesterday, and will be changing the electrical service for another friend this week. Our son is engaged, they’ve bought a house, and I have projects going on over there. I average 48-50 hours a week at work. My only female cousin, and also only one older than me, passed away the first week of June from ALS. My kid brother committed suicide August last year. I am still mad at him for that, and obviously still coming to terms with it. I did not post this trolling for sympathies, or condolences, but it has a bearing on the story. My Mom passed away on Easter of 2014, and my sister was the executor. My Father’s Mother had collected Hummels, and my sister had not gotten to dividing them up among us, before my brother’s death. This really bothered her, and she was afraid that if she didn’t divide them up soon, another of us would be gone. So on Palm Sunday this year my other brother, and myself, met at my sisters house and we divided up the Hummels. They are porcelain/ceramic figurines of children, made in Germany. Around 1968 my Mom’s dad (my grandfather) made 4 mangers, and bought 4 nativity sets. He kept one, and gave one to each of his children. My sister got my grandparents manger and I got my parents manger. There were roughly 60 Hummels, and there was a nativity set. My sister and I agreed to give Paul the nativity set, and I would build him a manger, before Christmas (see there is something dealing with WW’ing here ). When I got home from my sisters house that Palm Sunday, I was putting the Hummels away. I happened to glimpse into one of them, which was a bank, and saw a piece of paper. The key to the bank was taped to the bottom of it. It was a gift to my Dad’s Mom, from my parents, Christmas of 1957. I know this because my grandmother wrote it on the bottom of the Hummel, in pen. (Probably not adding to it’s value). So I opened the bank, and the piece of paper inside was my Father’s first grade picture, Dec 20, 1937 (pictures will follow). It was kinda like Dad saying hi, from the beyond. So today I went down to the basement and looked at my manger, and started cutting pieces of 1/4 Baltic birch for the new manger. I have a ShopSmith so I had to set everything up, and then disassemble and put away, clean up, so the Missus can use the basement. I also did a couple of loads of laundry while I was down there. I GOT TO SMELL SAWDUST! Now this is gonna be a box with a slanted top, pretty simple, nothing special. But for me this is awesome, I even got to use my tapering jig (store bought) for the first time. I will post some pictures of the process as it happens, and even if my friends projects don’t get done on time, or if I don’t work all the OT my job may demand, I’m gonna get my brother’s manger done in time. One of my reasons for posting this is so that if there are any other members here like me, just beginners, or still learning, it’s ok. The regular posters here are very talented, and their work is beautiful, and I suspect that may intimidate some of us from posting (There is a very high bar here), so I’ll happily be a representative for the newbie’s, still learning, 2 left handed, among the forum. One of the reasons that this is my single favorite forum is the overwhelming friendliness, and helpfulness of the members. There is none of the condensension, and snide remarks, that I have seen from the experts (self nominated) at some other sites (and I’m not referring necessarily about woodworking forums). So I stopped working on the project while I’m contemplating how I’m gonna do the joinery. This is NOT a request for help or advice, I wanna think about this, and come up with my own ideas, not because of pride, but because this is how I learn best. I had a great day, just being in the shop, it’s so much fun. I suspect that those here who have decades working in their own shops still get this feeling. I try to remind the old timers on some of my metal detecting sites, how much of a thrill it is for the newbs to just find a quarter, it can be easily forgotten how we all started out. On another note, my Missus’s friend, who has Everett for a son, does not seem inclined to let him come over and learn to use the scroll saw. I have asked, and the look on her face was like I was asking to let him swim in the alligator infested water. I learned, and I had fun, so there’s always that. Sorry for the long, disjointed epic
  14. Some of you older members of The Patriot Woodworker may remember my shop build from about 3 years ago. The project got put on hold for a couple of years due to the wifes, and mother in laws health issues and simply running low on funds to continue the project. I'm now finally getting back to the project. For the newer members, here are some before, & after photos of the project. I'll be posting more as I get things done.
  15. My shop is a small,15x15 area. No windows. I did clean up, a lot, before the photos. Don’t know what else to say...it’s small.
  16. From the album: John's Shop

    This is my shop now, after a big downsize last summer, we are able to park my wife's car in the garage now. Before there were many machines here, with a big ol Table Saw and workbench where my Shopsmith now sits till I am done and I roll it away to the side of the garage. All in all I am very happy with what have now, and I am doing many operations with less, and I am getting better at using the Shopsmith, it's a fine machine for me.
  17. Here is a video to maybe explain that gremlin in the shop and why you just cannot find anything. A homeowner puzzled as to who was mysteriously tidying up his garden shed late at night was astonished to find the culprit was a HOUSE PROUD MOUSE. Stephen Mckears, 72, first noticed objects moving in his shed a month ago and asked his neighbour Rodney Holbrook, 70, to help him get to the bottom of the mystery. The retired electrician noticed plastic clips appearing in an old ice cream tub filled with peanuts which he keeps to feed the birds before more objects began to accumulate. Questioning his sanity, Stephen emptied the tub each night, scattering the nuts and bolts across his shed, only to discover the mess had been cleaned by the morning. After weeks of finding large screws, plastic leads, nuts and bolts neatly filed away, the pair decided to set up a trail camera to uncover the mystery guest. Shop Mouse
  18. Today I finally finished the set up for my garage since moving from Corona, CA to Bowling Green, KY! Got everything in its place but will have to tweak some things. The clamps are hung on the wall along with 6 saw horses. The 2 large metal shelves I got to go through all of it. When we get a new shed 1or both of those shelves will go into the shed. I am waiting now for some dust collection fittings for the new Saw Stop from Rockler. Since I do not have a dedicated dust collector, I will use my Ridgid shop-vac. I knew I had to finally use those Rockler Gift Cards as they have been in my wallet for a long time.

    Inside the Maloof customer gallery, this is where potential customers come and place orders. This chair is one of his earlier models, you can tell by the straight back support spindles, later he started curving the back for lumbar support.
  20. From the album: Sam Maloof Site Visit 2019

    A Maloof Chair in progress, this chair is being made by Mike Johnson, the first paid employee of Maloof from his early years. Maloof entrusted Mike with the daily operations of the shop, and he passed on the legacy to Mike upon Sam's death. I got to sit and watch Mike shape the headrest for this chair with rasp. It was fun. We came back an hour later and he had closed up shop around 3:30pm.

    This is the front entrance courtyard to the Maloof home, this was the beginning of our tour, the inside of the home was amazing, with his work all over the place, and their art collection.

    Just a peak inside the shop from the outside, one big lathe!

    I used to own a Hitachi F-1000A just like this one, I loved mine. But man was it loud!
