The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #15: A Stumpy Short: An Incra LS for $100? Oh yah, baby!

03-25-2012 01:39 PM by StumpyNubs | 28 comments »

I always wanted an Incra LS table saw fence. But I didn’t want to sell a kidney to get it. So I bought a much less expensive positioner and adapted it to my existing fence. Now I have the best of both worlds, and it can be used on all of my shop machines… enjoy… More episodes at Stumpynubs.comFriend us on Facebook!Visit the Stumpy Store for project plans!

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #14: Tommy MacDonald and the Incredible Hulk.

03-22-2012 03:28 PM by StumpyNubs | 13 comments »

We all screw stuff up from time to time. Some of us do it more often than others. In Blue Collar Woodworking Episode #12 I show how I cut half the pins off when I was dovetailing the sides of the “Ultimate Tool Cabinet”. How on earth did I let that happen? This is 100 year old white oak! I’ve messed up my share of dovetails… and box joints… and dados, and, well, you name it! Sometimes I feel like chucking a tool across the shop and getting a job at McDonalds. ...

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #13: Is it ok to laugh at wood? It is unless you live on a creek...

Have you ever wandered into the wrong place at the wrong time? Like that time you walked in on your best friend practicing kissing moves on his reflection in the mirror. All you could do was stand there with your mouth open like a bass wishing you were somewhere else. But you couldn’t just walk out… it was too late! You can never unsee those things, and they tend to stick with you. Several months ago I wandered into a popular woodworking forum on the internet which shall remain...

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #12: What in the world IS THAT SMELL??????????????

03-17-2012 02:07 PM by StumpyNubs | 30 comments »

I walked through the door and it hit me like a punch in the face from that girl I used to pick on in grade school. It was a pungent odor, something reminiscent of verbena with a touch of death and decay. All around me I saw people holding their noses, one or two old ladies sat wheezing on the floor. I made my way over to a boy who was vomiting in a bucket, just to inhale the air around him for relief. From there I noticed a curious thing. The cashiers seemed totally unaffected by the noxious ...

In this episode we unveil our shop-made bench top biscuit joining machine designed for fast, accurate glue-ups… and we begin the “Ultimate Tool Cabinet Build”. Plus, Stumpy gives you a list of things to do with your Sundays now that football season is over… Here’s some screen shots of the sketchup drawing for the machine. The most difficult part about the build was the mount for the joiner. It took a lot of work to get the design just right. If it’s no...
