Part 10 of the potato bin series...finally

Yes, I actually took the time to get back at editing and putting together a video. It is not my best performing series, but this episode uses some pretty special wood that really makes the unit pop! Thanks for tuning in and commenting.


Oh, and I've given up on how to figure out how to embed video. Lumberjocks just seems to want to make it impossible.

for gods sake man no more pheusdo porn movies please
We don't need to hear about your fancy rooting or your girlfriends 10 inches thanks… You bragger.
well maybe not here at least anyway , ... or at least I hope so.

Now a safety issue next:-

The table saw …your fingers are way too close to the blade !

We don't want an insurance company claiming negligence as you may only have the option of only one leg to stand on.
Environmentals-

What is the red tape around the windows

And by the way get a hair cut please, your starting to look like Ron Jeremy, not that I have ever met him!

Thanks for checking out the video Rob.

My home made fence is only about 1 3/4" tall (It's a 44mm tall extrusion). It makes access to the work piece so much better. I don't know why more aren't made that way. They make them about 4" tall and channels your hand into a tight space where mine does not. Mine keeps the hand well away from the blade. If it looks close it is not. Probably more of a paralax distortion from the video. Depth perception is somewhat skewed on video. Not to worry, but thanks for your concern.

The red tape is the vapour barrier tape from installing the windows. It seals to the exterior Tyvek so there is no chance of the wood getting wet if there is a leak.

The hair is cut. I got some buzz clippers and do it myself now. Just got my wife to go over the head with it yesterday…lol. You should have seen it 20 years ago! Long and curly with no grey at all!

Thanks again!

Finally!

Finally!

I got around to editing a video

Finally!

It's the last one of the series on how to build a fancy root vegetable bin, aka, potato bin. Life is so busy with other things that this got put off over and over again. It's done now, and, if I may say so myself, is beautiful.

The first guitar in the new shop

I put the word out that I do some guitar work. It didn't take long for a young lady to respond. It was her mom actually. The girl is just taking up guitar. She is talented in other instruments too. The guitar came in sticky, with a dried out finger board and action that made it difficult to play. It left clean, conditioned, and easy to play. Which, after all, is the point.

Camber a plane iron

I use my #5 almost exclusively as a fore plane. I decided to up it's usability for the job by putting a camber on the iron. Not too much of one, a 10" radius seems about right to check it out. I also changed the bevel angle to 35 degrees to give it a bit more strength. The same angle that Chris Schwarz uses. I am pleased with my first attempt at this, the plane works a treat!

I put a camber on an iron last year when I finally got a bench grinder. I think it made a huge difference and I am super impressed with how quickly it takes off wood and how nice a finish it leaves.

The only bedrock I own is a no. 5 and the older round side "rule and level" era. I use it almost exclusively as a scrub/fore plane with heavy camber. I like to keep the scalloped surface on certain parts as it keeps a "hand made" look and feel.

I think you're going to like the camber more and more!

Fighting bad installation manuals

I'm on a new project in our new home. This time I am installing a bathroom. It's below grade and below the waste plumbing so I had to buy a very expensive macerating toilet with a pump on it to handle the waste water. With all the money these things cost you would think that they would have had someone with some technical writing skills to do the manual. But no, not these guys. A short gloss over of things is all they give you and even that is incomplete and vague. Join me as I figure this out and get the waste plumbed to the pump and the venting started. There will be an update on this one as I make more progress on it.

As a aspiring Engineer in the Univ. I had two semesters of prose and poetry but no technical writing. Later as an employed engineer never had a request for prose or poetry but did need technical writing often. Self taught.

I know exactly where you are coming from, so do the rest of us. No slight intended to 987Ron. The people that write the instructions are already so familiar with the product, what seems perfectly clear to them, is NOT to the rest of us. Some of it is clearly contracted out to offshore services. In this case it is suspect if those people have ever touched the product. When it tanslated from one language to another it gets comical.

Jim, patience is the name of the game here. And, yes shall glue no pipe before it's time!

The huge project is done.

After months of work we finally got the lower level of our new home ready. This project is for my wife and she will be running the show. We are both exhausted. The bookings are coming in. Most of them forest fire workers coming up for the season, which is cool, long term is nice security. Anyway, here is the 25 cent tour of the place as it is. There may be odds and ends added or adjusted over time. We shall see.

Building a new outfeed table

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.

Finally, I made another video.

It's been brutally busy around here trying to get this place into shape. I haven't even had the camera rolling, but I have some stock from in the spring. I take a couple of beat up yard sale night stands and bring them back to life.

What type of camera do you use? And how many Cameras do you shoot with? You have nice clear pics with little distortion. I have been getting more interested in doing videos of all the things I do, but in some of the research I did the cameras are seriously expensive. I like to just get things out. See how it turns out. Any advice? I Don't want to be a youtubber but like to have things uploaded as I like to watch and have learned a lot from others.

Nice job. I looked at the end tables, (Tend to not like pressboard) and thought why, but after what you did with them it was a nice job. Good enhancements and not too much for really nice pieces.

I use a Lumix FZ150. Not an expensive piece at all. I edit using the free version of Lightworks, so that has some bearing on it too with adjusting the levels to how I like it.

What'cha Doin Doc?

Seeing as the project isn't really one thing, but a whole old church, I am trying something different. A run and gun vlog. The work isn't condusive to a "project" style video, so let's see how short updates work.
