10-02-2010 04:42 AM by PurpLev | 20 comments »

OK, so now that the kitchen challenge is all over, I guess it’s a good time to post a blog regarding kitchen items … or… hold on… um – oops. too late. Oh well, I guess I’ll blog this anyways. So, the plan is to make a bread board. for the time being, the design shall remain unseen and will reveal in details as this blog series will progress.

100+ year old hard maple roots #1: 100+ year old hard maple roots

08-28-2007 06:05 PM by Splinters | 5 comments »

Was fortunate enough to have someone come up to me at the Farmer’s Market and say: “I am having my sidewalk redone and they had to cut roots out to make room for the new walk. The workers are just going to haul them to the dump. Would you be interested in taking them and see what you can do with them? Of course I jumped at the chance not knowing what I was going to end up with. I didn’t get any before photos but this is what it looked like after we cut them: Second root ...

Bowling Alley Workbench #6: There is more than 1 way to skin a cat - not so with bowling alley floors though - finally success

07-08-2009 06:19 AM by PurpLev | 36 comments »

Yes. Finally some light at the end of the tunnel, reverse thinking, and this project seems a bit more doable, and even not much trouble at all. Originally I tried to get the (2.5” hardened) nails out by using a cat’s paw and a hammer to pull each nail out of the 2.5 laminated hard-rock maple strips.
