Journey into Woodturning #52: Flame Birch Purpleheart

04-13-2021 02:40 PM by MovingChips | 0 comments »

It’s been awhile since I turned a potpourri pot and I have been thinking about a two tone glue up. In this piece I used Flame Birch for the top and bottom and a piece of purpleheart for contrast. In addition, I tried to make the proportions look appealing. This project started off on a bad note. Huge chunk of purple heart flew off. Had to cut it away and glue another piece on. Reshaping the bowl I think made it dangerously small. In the end I managed to keep it wide enough to put the pewte...

Lighting for Wood Cabinets in My Jack Daniel's Bar

04-10-2021 03:40 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 0 comments »

Cabinet lighting for wood cabinets can be challenging, especially when there are wood shelves. See how to light up a cabinet with wood shelves to provide a nice glow. I also give a tour of my Jack Daniel’s themed bar, which might give you ideas for building your own bar. Video Link—> The existing cabinet lighting in my bar display cabinets have failed so I’m replacing them. About 15 years ago I installed LED rope lights, which were a...

Keela's Urn Box #4: The Tray (Updated)

04-08-2021 09:36 PM by BrettLuna | 1 comment »

Similar to the box itself, I also cut the tray sides extra wide to improve handling and stability on the box joint jig. Standing narrow stock on end is a real pain. I then cut a panel groove for the bottom’s rabbeted edge. A quick and easy glue-up sat overnight and there we are: When sizing the tray sides, I was shooting for as close a fit as I could get without being too loose or so large that I had to take off a lot of material, all while trying to account for how proud the ...

Journey into Woodturning #51: Buckeye Burl Jr. Zen Pen

04-06-2021 02:07 PM by MovingChips | 1 comment »

This weeks video was about the amount of time it takes to make a Jr. Zen Pen and the wood I used. Buckeye burl I have heard about being used in many applications and thought, sure a pen. As I was turning the wood, I was beginning to think I got a bad selection of wood. The punky soft wood was getting pretty bad with tear out. The more I looked at it, it seemed the wood wasn’t tearing out as much as it was getting pushed over! I switched to sanding and that went well and fast. It wasn’t ...

Camera left on during cleanup and long overdue power tool maintenance

04-05-2021 01:20 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 5 comments »

This is nothing spectacular. I just let the camera roll as I talked about an overdue checkup of the shop. Today I did some cleaning and some long overdue power tool maintenance. Mostly it was cleaning and the maintenance was checking to see if any adjusting was needed on a jointer and planer. I did a complete greasing of the sawstop innards according to the sawstop video, which I provided a link if anyone uses the PCS. It’s actually a fairly straightforward job if you’ve got th...

Shop stuff #207: Building a new outfeed table

04-03-2021 01:27 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Temporary….anything not meant to last. What is temporary? Well, everything if you wait long enough. But sometimes you just have to decide that “for now” is over and that’s usually when you’re tired of the compromises in your quick fix. That’s what happened to my table saw outfeed and now it’s time to remedy that situation.

Journey into Woodturning #50: Cherry Bowl

03-30-2021 02:32 PM by MovingChips | 0 comments »

I forgot I recently turned cherry, so the video this week was done a little differently. A friend asked if I could make them a salad bowl. I grabbed a piece of wood I thought would make a great size salad bowl. I think it’s a little small for a large bowl, but they seemed to think it was a great size. I used butchers block oil for the first time and I kind of like it. It doesn’t stain the wood and looks great. Althought it might be that the cherry is so nice, it wouldn’...

Portable Air Conditioner Awning Window HVAC #7: Thermal curtains, Banksy, and Gee Fix

03-29-2021 08:08 PM by DevinT | 3 comments »

Our condo is 3 stories tall. It is a nightmare to cool/heat. Attempting to change the temperature in the middle floor (where we spend most of our time) usually requires altering the temperature of the entire home. It is not ideal. You know those plastic flaps inside walk-in freezers? I contacted stripcurtains dot com and ordered some strips and mounting hardware. Quick-Links to videos found in-order below:

Portable Air Conditioner Awning Window HVAC #6: Supply/Return

03-29-2021 01:17 AM by DevinT | 7 comments »

The air conditioner that we settled on was a dual-hose kind. That means that there is a separate hose for the supply air and the return air. There are to be 2 holes in the shelf for the ductwork. However, we have a slight problem. If we attach the ductwork to holes created in the shelf, then it will technically be compressed by 3/8” when we swap the 3/4” ply for 1 1/8” walnut. This does not seem like a problem, but it is for the design and function of this system I am bui...

Portable Air Conditioner Awning Window HVAC #5: Mistakes were made

03-28-2021 11:28 PM by DevinT | 0 comments »

The first shelf I made to sit atop the corbels was not up to the task—it was undersized on purpose but mistakes were also made. It would have to be remade due to a couple errors. The first problem I had was that I didn’t take the kerf of the saw blade into account and that caused the gaps in the dog-ear cutouts I made for the window sill. I think I told myself, that I intentionally undersized it for a test-run, but if I’m being honest, I think that was the real cause of...
