  1. We have been really busy the last few months and I just realized today that I hadn't shown our finish/assembly room addition. We got a 16' x 44' portable building and put it beside the shop, then built an enclosed hallway between the two. It took a lot of work to get it to this point. There is still several things to be done in both buildings when I can get to it. We spray everything we can (doors, drawer fronts, face frames, etc) hanging. I have a short video of my son spraying, but I don't see how to put a video here.

  2. Man, I have been slacking!!! Needed one and couldn't find mine (still in storage mode) so I made another. I can't remember how many years I've got on the first one. Here's the tools you will need. Clamp the card so the edge of the bench acts as a depth stop. Punch, shift, punch, shift, punch, shift . . . Cleans up easily and even if you get lazy, most of the dried glue pops right off the dead gift card's surface. Punch-outs can be deeper or shallower depending on your needs.

  3. Wife wants an entry-way closet unit instead of the old sliding doors (from 1967). Not certain why. :-) This first part is an upright to hold the ironing board & accessories, vacuum, and table leaf. Made of oak veneer plywood with glued-on oak strips (those 2 in "hobby" strips from HD), with a maple stain plus poly. (I don't prefer mixing stain/grain like that, but she's happy and it looks ok, I guess.) And a gap behind the shelf to accommodate the extra height needed for flag storage. Simple hidden hinges. A few things I might do differently if I had to do it over, but it came ou

  4. New laguna blade. Unfortunately the first one came with surface rust so I had to wait another 2 weeks for a replacement.

  5. Here is a video of my son spraying finish on a door using Paint Lines portable hanging system. We ended up making a permanent version.

  7. Well the sanding, shaping and finishing is done. Glueups went well and I'm pretty happy with the contours. Used Osmo as the finish, 2 coats. Chairs were delivered to the upholstery guy today; Side shot, pretty happy with the shape and look; A few pics of the contours and shape, not as intricate as the Maloof Rocker; And right before loading in my truck, the two chairs sunning themselves; I'll come back around to these once the cushions are made. Thanks for looking.

  8. You're doing better than me, if you can make those Euro hinges work smoothly!

  9. These are great looking. I'm excited to see what the upholstered result looks like. I'm sure that you are as well.

  11. At the risk of being redundant, great work. Is this your first go with Osmo? What do you think of it?

  12. You could make a shallower set of punch-outs on the opposite side.

  13. I'm impressed by your setup. And congratulations on getting large production jobs. I see in one of the pictures that it looks like a crop growing near your shop. Are you also a farmer? I like your beard. It makes me think of ZZ Top. Is there any danger with a long beard near machinery?

  14. I’d mic everything as it comes out and compare it to the new head. I have no experience with that planer, but you want to be absolutely certain of tolerances regarding bearings etc. if you cannot find a swap already completed, looking for parts lists so that you can evaluate bearings and shaft sizes is always good confirmation.

  15. He is quite skilled with a scrollsaw. I first found him on another woodworking forum that I had to desert because of insufferable popup activity. He would do scrollsaw pictures and show a little at a time and everyone would be guessing what it was. Then he would also do detailed wooden models that would blow you away.

  18. The quantity of work is a logical consideration when buying tools. For me I use Makita. It makes sense to pick a brand and stay with it so as to have interchangeable batteries. Also lithium batteries new and left on the shelf will not deteriorate. Therefore I buy batteries and make sure there are at least 2 batteries in the bubble packs on standby. The best time to buy the batteries is December with the very best sale prices. About 50% off.

  19. Its done after everything is finished. Adhesive is carefully painted on the desired surfaces then the flocking is blown or sifted into the box and shaken to distribute it. Excess is shaken out and adhesive allowed to dry.
