Shop stuff #153: Yearly maintenance and adjusting.

03-22-2019 08:04 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Like most things you own, guitars need some looking at on a regular basis to keep them performing at their optimal level. This is a Wayne’s World Strat that has been in before in for a check up and adjusting. Once a year is a good way to keep them performing and in good shape. They are made of wood, and wood moves with the seasons. They also see pretty big swings in temperature and humidity if they are being taken out of the house and travelling around to gigs, practise and get toge...

Understairs Drawer Storage

02-21-2019 06:47 AM by Muzzzzy | 0 comments »

Hi All, So I have had this idea to build under stairs sliding cupboards for quite some time mainly due to the wasted/misused space under our stairs. I have viewed some superb products online which seem overly expensive as i guess it is a bit of a specialist item. Anyway, being a bit of a computer enthusiast too I fire up a free version of SketchUp and put together this rough idea of what I would like to achieve. Add a couple more draws: And finally a cutting plan: Materials used ...

Chester Drawers build #1: A plan is made

02-18-2019 03:15 PM by bandit571 | 6 comments »

Long time ago, back about Norm Abram’s second season…..Had a 2-1/2 car garage shop…doing all the usual projects for sale….came a request for a chest of drawers…..had never done one, before. Took a few days to figure things out, but delivered a 3 drawer unit. More orders came in, word of mouth sales. Needed a system to make chest of drawers quickly…. So, what this blog will be about, will be how those chest of drawers were made back then. Back th...

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...

Adding LED Lights to Your Tools

02-11-2019 07:13 PM by Matt Snyder | 7 comments »

Having good focused lights is essential on many tools and often your shop lights just don’t cut it. Adding an LED light on an adjustable neck is cheap and easy and, with a little modification, you won’t have to use up any more outlets. I bought four of these lights on Amazon for $10 each They have a magnetic base so they can attach to your tools and give you the light you need where you need it. Modifying them to use your tool’s power is fairly simple. First cut off the plug a...

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...
