  1. scrollsaw buffalo

    Cut a buffalo out of a scrap piece of 5/4 deck plank with a coat of Minwax dark walnut stain and shellac.
  2. *********************************** extension cord holder/carrier.

    Ok… Ok… I know it's not fancy. But heck… I'm tired of moving this dang extension cord around in my shop. It's a 100' extension cord and its kinda heavy. We use it for the electric weed eater. It's very handy but don't have a place for it and its always in my way. Today has been a cleaning day...
  3. Custom Wet Bar

    This is a wet bar I did for a customer that gutted one of his bathrooms in a remodel. The drain and water lines were already there! Probably one of the most difficult cabinet jobs I've done. Just because of all the 45 degree angles. All in all it turned out to be my best work to date. Two...
  4. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    With the addition of my refurbished 15" Jet 220v Planer and refurbished 8" GeeTech 220v Jointer, I am now short on 220v receptacles at strategic locations for their respective power cords to reach. I looked at the price tag of something quick at HD or such. Eeeek! They looked fragile, small...

  6. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Guys- I'm experiencing some chattering on start-up of my 1997 Delta Unisaw. Motor is 220V 1Ph, 11 amp rating. I know that there is an instantaneous start-up draw of considerably more than 11amps (I've seen estimates of almost 3X label stated amp draw). Panel is 30 amp breakers. I'm running...
  7. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have a lot of power tools that I need to run on a 20 amp circuit. Can I use 12-2 or 10-2 cable and make a 10 to 12 foot extension cord that I would plug-in and the other end would have four 20 amp receptacles? This would be at least half the price of buying a power strip that has 20 amp...
  8. Blogs
    A trip to Harbor Freight, vacuum pump, legalities, and shop cleanup. Just posted a video about a trip to Harbor Freight, some HF shopping tips, legalities, AC Repair, and shop cleanup among other things… Just as an FYI, I mention my "GoPro", I should have said SJ4000, I am too cheap to buy a...
