My Favorite Glue Scraper

03-11-2013 08:37 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 20 comments »

Hey everybody! I have been very busy between working on my client’s projects, squeezing in a project for another contractor, and rebuilding my website. As if that wasn’t enough, I decided to shoot a video to share with you what my favorite tool is for scraping off dried or semi-dried glue as I worked on one of those projects. I am really excited to bring another video to the woodworking and DIY community, so I hope you enjoy and find it helpful. Your friend in the shop, Todd A....

My Blogs #1: 5 Things You May Be Surprised to Learn about LED Lightbulbs

12-23-2013 05:32 AM by Michele Duchet | 19 comments »

LED lights have really taken off in the last couple decades, with these little devices lighting millions of homes across the US. While many people are familiar with LEDs, they are still largely unaware of just how these lights work or how much better they are than incandescent light bulbs. For most people, LEDs are little more than a replacement for their traditional incandescent bulbs, but it would be a mistake to think that that’s all LEDs offer. In fact, LEDs have a number of features that...

My Living Room #1: Demo time!

09-14-2012 04:02 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 18 comments »

I have been targetting my living room for the longest time. And since I have been playing with small pieces of wood for several weeks now, my cash situation has recovered and I had the money to invest in my wood floor. This room is where the dominos will start to fall in rapid succession. You see, I own the furniture I will upholster for that room. I own the fabric I will upholster than furniture in. Getting that stuff upholstered get’s it out of my garage and gives me room to work. Wit...

Last time we suggest that the earth wire must grounded well. Please check attached picture. We marked yellow is ground terminal block.On earth wire must be settled under the ground 1.5 meter with a metal bar.

Remodeling a family cottage #5: Window dressing

08-20-2013 09:25 PM by Craftsman on the Lake | 17 comments »

The past couple of days I have prepped some oak and cut it into the parts I need to make the architrave moldings in the living room. As you can see it consists of four parts. One thin strip, one cove, and two ogees. Stacked one atop another they make a nice window top. The side moldings are fluted. Simple design, not difficult to make and a nice effect that will not need any other window dressing like curtains..The parts: from left to right. thin strip, large cove, narrow ogee, wide ogee..Cap...

Marching orders are in #1: Fireplace surround and mantel.

My better half is out buying paint for our living room plus some other goodies. We have been in this house for a year now and although it was painted when we moved in we can not live with the color “which is in every room including the bathrooms”. I have no idea which color she is picking out, ah maybe a little idea and the operative words are “that’s a great color honey”. So here is what I am starting with. This first picture shows a 2” X 6” velcroed...
