Workshop #1: Building a Proper Workbench

02-22-2019 07:38 AM by b1v1r | 0 comments »

I read stefang's recent blog on how to Improve Your Posts and it reminded me of my first post long ago and, unfortunately, my lack of posts since. I remembered how I was pleasantly surprised that people took the time to look (and comment) on just a silly screened door from a beginner and thought what a great community this could be. And then I promptly forgot to post anything else. Sigh. I can do better… I came into woodworking with a strong desire to build, but without a lot of equi...

Shop stuff #149: Something different to work on

02-17-2019 10:58 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I don’t often get a bass guitar in the shop to work on. This one is a Squier Jaguar bass, made in Indonesia and it has a short scale. The owner is a guitar player but keeps this at home to mess about with. I have worked on several of his instruments and he wanted me to give this one a going over. It isn’t that old and in good shape, but it was out a bit in certain areas so I got it adjusted to spec and tested it out. I am barely a guitar player and the bass is totally foreign...

How to build a Veneer Bag Deployment and Storage Jig

02-14-2019 06:01 PM by BenhamDesign | 0 comments »

I built this a few years ago and had originally decided not to share it because it wasn’t furniture, but enough people saw me use it in my videos and have asked about it so I decided to edit the video and share how I built it along with the veneer supplies I use. The bage is a little over 4 1/2 feet wide and close to 9 feet long. Basically I can fit a 4 x sheet of plywood in it and still have enough bag left over to fold it around the PVC pipe to clamp it shut. If you are intereste...

02-08-2019 10:11 PM by stazzz | 1 comment »

I’m back. We decided we were going to relocate to NC to be where the wood is. Well I finally had time to catch up and realized it has been some time since I was on here. So my projects are now on my own blog as well as my website and I have also been active in Pinterest. I will be checking in with quite a few projects scheduled for this year the big one I’m hoping for is a dedicated steel building. I moved from a 2 car to three car garage and 1/4 acre to over 10. Planning to retir...

Shop stuff #148: Snow thrower auger belt change

02-08-2019 06:53 PM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

Ahh yes, winter. Not like they used to be, but we still get enough snow that an old fart like me has to keep a snow thrower around. With anything mechanical, of course, there will be fixing to do. After burning out the belt doing some heavy wet snow I decided I would show how it is changed. Sometimes it’s a pain in the butt. This is two fixes after two attempts at using it. I am hoping that’s it for the year as far as fixing goes. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #147: Cleaning and tuning a contractors style table saw

02-02-2019 02:09 AM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

I helped one of my neighbours pick up a table saw from his In laws. It was in need of cleaning and tuning up, so I did it for him and ran the camera while doing it. I explain what I am doing as I go through the machine and bring it from trashy to treasure. View on YouTube

Rotocator - DIY Style #2: Make a DIY Rotocator

01-30-2019 11:19 AM by CaptainKlutz | 6 comments »

What is Rotocator? please see post #1. :) Preface:What I have made below is not new. It is not my original idea. I take zero credit for this tool. I found some images for this tool searching for cheap way to make the trademarked Rotocator, and later found an obscure blog post with parts list. Since I first book marked the web page, it has disappeared from WWW. Decided that this tool was important enough it needed some additional documentation in WWW, especially for folks here on...
