  1. Yet more cups of coffee and biscuits

    Having said to someone recently that I never made the same thing twice, here I am having made the third one of these "2 cups of coffee & a packet of biscuits, please". The first I made just for a bit of fun, but it's proved very useful for its purpose, and has since had daily use. I was speaking...
  2. Workshop Floor Sweep Attachment

    Workshop Floor Sweep Attachment How much are you willing to pay for 1 meter of plastic tube with a handle and a nozzle, $40 - $50? Well I was not willing to spend that much for a floor gulper, so I gave it try to make one. I had a piece of left over tube, added 45 angle elbow, a piece of ¼...

  6. Inverted Jig Saw Table

  7. "Rough Cut" Wall Cabinet

    I can't believe it's been almost 600 days since I posted a project so I thought I'd toss this one out there. This is my version of Tommy Mac's wall cabinet. I used cherry wood and through dovetails instead of the half- blind Tommy uses. This was fun to build and learned a few things. Next...

    Every drill press I have ever seen, including my disposable little HF 8" benchtop, has T-slots in the table and base supposedly useful for bolting on attachments such as a vice. However, I don't seem to be able to find vices that will actually fit the spacing on those slots. What is the...

(No, that isn't the only funding I have, but it will certainly help) I have been looking around Etsy and Google images at bird feeders and have about 5 or 6 designs I like. The issue is that I don't...
