Fitting out the shop #2: A shop and...

08-29-2021 05:37 PM by Kent | 4 comments »

In Part 1 I introduced a vintage tool chest that I picked up. Over the last year plus I’ve managed to clean it up, build a shop to put it in and to start to use it. Here’s a picture of the view from about that time, taken from about where I’m sitting right now. Here’s a shot from the same place this morning. It has been a tremendous improvement in so many ways: warm and cool enough, drier, brighter, more secure, better power, guest seating and,...

Shop stuff #211: Another small job done.

08-18-2021 09:00 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I finished up the fascia today and this is how it turned out. Not the permanent fix I want, but it’s better than it was and will hold until we can get the whole roof rebuilt.

Whitegate question

08-17-2021 11:23 AM by Kiwibird | 1 comment »

Can someone tell me where Whitegate Benches are made and if they have a website. I’m just trying to find out more about their background, as I purchased one from a junk yard and love to know the history of Vintage items I buy.

Shop stuff #210: What'cha Doin Doc?

08-16-2021 05:38 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

Seeing as the project isn’t really one thing, but a whole old church, I am trying something different. A run and gun vlog. The work isn’t condusive to a “project” style video, so let’s see how short updates work.

House Projects #8: Sun Room Work - More of it...

07-31-2021 02:24 PM by littlecope | 3 comments »

In the last episode, the inside Framing around where the new casement window is going had just been completed.. The last little inside step, was to drill a hole in the very corner of the opening with a long-shank drill… After inserting dowels in the holes from the outside, it was very simple to mark the opening on the siding with a straight edge… Before any of the cutting was done, the siding and sheathing were re-nailed to the new stud configuration underneath… ...

The Casement Window we ordered showed up considerably earlier than the given estimate, came in Wednesday of this week… Eagerly, the weekend was awaited, and some precious free time to move forward with that process…Purchased some Lumber this Morning and spent the day with the basic framing…Removed the first stud and replaced with another in the desired place… Cut a couple of shorter pieces that will be the top of the window’s height… Then removed the ...

House Projects #6: Sun Room Work - Progress Report

07-16-2021 04:27 PM by littlecope | 5 comments »

If you recall, the tale stopped here, on the 4th… While we await the arrival of the new window, Progress has been made towards restoring the room to a “New Normal”...Had a scrap of drywall from the demolition large enough to fit, so this went in soon after… Of course that meant taking down the shelf again to finagle it in… I’ll have to remove it a last time when all this is sanded, finished, and painted…One of my assistants (who is always in his...

House Projects #5: Sun Room Work - Starts up in Earnest

07-05-2021 06:32 PM by littlecope | 4 comments »

Been nibbling and pawing at our little “Sun Room” since we moved in to our Home over six years ago…Changed the overhead light, peeled half the room of it’s old layers of wallpaper, added, moved and re-moved shelves, tried various configurations of different furniture…The Room is the laundry area and rear entrance way to the house and the rug shows it. It is in my mind to remove the rug and add some sort of vinyl flooring… and that’s where the Fun begi...

Craftsmanship - What constitutes craftsmanship? #1: Ruminations on the Art of Woodworking

06-09-2021 07:48 AM by Mike_190930 | 15 comments »

I recently posted a small project, a wooden box built to hold my Veritas router planer. It was a quick utilitarian project to protect a valuable tool, with a little bit of flourish in the form of a bas relief decoration on the top. All in humble scrap pine. Mainly I posted it to keep my finger in the pot. It also happened that I built it with a homemade CNC (described elsewhere in my blog). Now it happens, and I say this without malice, one of the comments was “WOW. Nice craftsman...

Tongue Drums #3: Building Individual Tongue Drum Keys

06-08-2021 07:34 PM by GnarlyErik | 1 comment »

A few months ago I took the top off of a tongue drum in order to try to fine tune the tongues. In the process I accidentally split the top at the anchor ends of a couple keys. I re-glued it and it didn’t seem to make any difference. That got me wondering about building a tongue drum with individual keys, which could be tuned before assembly into the top. Tuning is really a tough proposition because it’s hard to determine the Hertz level of the key you are tuning since the sympathetic vibratio...
