Thanks for having a look and I promise i’ll have some better videos soon, little more detail and longer.

New Shop! #7: More progress.

09-16-2012 02:10 AM by Ryan Haasen | 4 comments »

It’s been a while since the last shop update, but I wanted to wait for a lot of progess before making this update. We have been working really hard every weekend to get thing done. So here are the main tasks we (my Dad, Brother and I) have completed since the last update: - The outside shell is finished- The asphalt was teared out from the heli-pad- Put all the plumbing into the ground for the drains, toilet, sinks, and shower. I don’t have pictures of this, but it was the hard...

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #14: Milling Cherry for the Cabinet Face

06-22-2012 02:56 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 27 comments »

EDIT: Updated to eliminate PB BS. Smitty Pictures tonight, but precious little dialogue. Lunchbox planer was out with a bad switch, but it came back this weekend. So the boards went through multiple passes then were each given the #4 smoother treatment. I did move to the #4 1/2 after awhile, and the mass was very welcome. I ripped a thicker board then did the re-saw of those boards on the old Craftsman bandsaw. When the night was over, the cabinet was covered with the frui...

Workbench #18: Thoughts and Changes

05-16-2012 02:25 AM by CartersWhittling | 15 comments »

Hello. Its been 6 months since I finished my bench and I have spent over 1000 hours on it. Now that I have gotten a good feel for how the bench works and its ups and downs I thought I would write an update on it. To start I’ll mention the modifications I made. The first was to add leather to the pads on the hold fasts. With leather I no longer need to place scrap wood between the work pieces and the hold fasts to prevent denting. If you have hold fasts (which you should) I would r...

Just checking in...

Well, I have since my last post shut the doors on my business and got a job to support my family. I have sold some of my unused tools for extra money to get by and then sold my truck. I have since bought another truck and still enjoy the little time I get to spend in the shop. My oldest daughter has two kids making me a proud grampa! My oldest son has been living in Alaska since September and seems to be finally growing up! My youngest boy is Mr. baseball! 12 months a year! Lots o...

Daily Top 15 is here!

11-14-2011 06:01 PM by Martin Sojka | 62 comments »

Let’s see what you think about this update. I’m quite excited about it and am eager to see how it evolves down the road. I personally found home page a bit boring for some time and was thinking about the way to make it more interesting – possibly by adding a bit of competitiveness to it as it never hurts. The final update is more robust and it awards the most active projects posted daily. So what’s it all about? The most recent projects were replaced by Daily Top 15...

Trying out the Consignment Route #5: Feedback and Good News!

07-15-2011 10:37 PM by KnotCurser | 7 comments »

So, it’s been 43 days since the last blog on this topic as well as around 30 days since I had any words from the shop. The lack of communication really didn’t bother me at all since I assumed that I had no sales and I would shortly be going back to the shop, packing up my stuff and writing off the entire experience as a “lesson learned” with no money lost by anyone. Not so fast. I finally got an email from one of the owners saying that business is “picking...

Trying out the Consignment Route #4: A bit of feedback and a photo!

06-20-2011 09:58 PM by KnotCurser | 8 comments »

It’s been just shy of twenty days now and my curiosity got the better of me. I picked up the phone and gave the shop a call. As always the co-owner who I talked to could NOT have been nicer! She stated that while my works were generating a TON of conversation and questions, none were sold yet. She is hoping that the upcoming 4th of July weekend is approaching and to “keep our fingers crossed”. I have a feeling they are priced a tad bit high and will have to be low...
