Melamine Part 2: Apply Edge Banding

01-30-2013 04:52 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 5 comments »

I just finished up the video for applying edge banding to melamine. This video follows Part 1 on how to get clean cuts in melamine, which can be quite a challenge without the right blade and techniques. Once the melamine is cut, often it will need to have edge banding applied. So I cover this topic in Part 2. I could have made a 2 minute video that shows me applying a piece with an iron and trimming the excess, but that can leave a person with a lot of questions. In these videos, you no...

Removing Carpeting - Prepping for Hardwood

01-21-2013 05:00 AM by Mark | 10 comments »

Attached is a video I shot this weekend while tearing out carpeting as part of my ongoing dining room renovation – essentially to make way for the hardwood floor I’ll be installing in the coming month or so. I tried to turn this into a tutorial video in case you haven’t done this before: I remember the first time I did this, the carpet was huge/cumbersome and truly (disgustingly) filthy! That was an eye-opener… So, I’ve come to remove carpet in small, neat pie...

Using Deck and Landscape Design Software

01-04-2013 04:21 AM by Mark | 9 comments »

Hi All - The attached video may be of interest to some of you thinking about a deck or landscape design project; I captured it from my PC some months back showing how I use a design software package to take much of the risk out of expensive & elaborate projects like this. I thought I’d post it here, and I also have a more extensive deck & landscape design visualization article on my website as well if anyone is interested. I seriously got my money out of this little softwa...

An Upholstery Primer #4: Make a throw pillow

11-02-2012 04:28 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 3 comments »

Hey Refurbers, Sorry for skipping ahead but I have long since upholstered the couch I was stripping in the other post. I didn’t have a camera crew available (my 11 year old daughter) and I needed both hands for the work. You knew There was some sewing invloved in upholstery. I figured we could start with a throw pillow. In my case, they are back cushions to that couch I upholstered. My daughter and I tried to film this series as best as we could on the I-Phone. You may have to ...

A Shop for Dan #11: Lifting the soil

05-30-2012 04:50 PM by Dan Lyke | 5 comments »

It’s been a while since my last update here, but work hasn’t stopped that much. I did get employed, which sucks, but you know, cash flow and all that. Anyway, I was kinda stalled out so I called in a “final” inspection on my two permits on the shop, got sign-off on the electrical, and 3 things left on the main permit: They wanted to see the eaves painted, a landing for the door, and the soil on the roof. I need all those things done anyway, but getting a good clean ...

Re-Plumbing #2: Holes in the walls, but the water flows

05-17-2012 07:20 PM by Dan Lyke | 3 comments »

So we got the plumbing in. Most of it done in a weekend, and it would have gone faster if I’d just sucked it up and bought a Sawzall and started pulling out the old plumbing with that, first. I settled on the Upinor ProPEX system because all of my contractor and handyman friends said “go to Pace Plumbing Supply”, so I did. I asked the guy behind the counter for some parts and he said “the tool is $400”. I’d looked at the various crimp-on systems, and...

Getting Clean Cuts In Melamine

05-09-2012 03:55 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 13 comments »

Melamine is great for making shelves or perhaps utility cabinets. But getting a cut without a lot of chipping can be a challenge. In this video I share my tools and techniques for creating clean cuts on both sides of melamine. The blade I use in the video is a triple chip Freud LU97R010. It makes the cut on the back side as clean as on the top side. The images of the cuts in the video are of the backside of the material where chip-out tends to occur. In Part II I will show you how t...

Bending flashing without a brake

03-13-2012 10:57 PM by Craftsman on the Lake | 4 comments »

This is a simple video that will show how I bend flashing for a small job. A brake is nice but if you don’t bend stuff much then having one is a luxury that isn’t needed much.
