I’m going to make a different base - more like a knife block with optional hanging- and I couldn’t achieve a perfect mirror finish with my angle grinder- ballparked 20 degree and first try didn’t open bottle :)
Table Saw Class
Tools + Materials
Meet Your Saw
Easy enough - I liked making indents
All About Glue
Making Perfectly Straight Cuts
Meat Cooking Basics
I feel like I learned a lot about drilling and measuring holes - is it the table saw blade cutting the dowel? The drill forcing the hole from one size to the other?
Rusty Junk to Useful Stuff EASY With Chemistry!
Well done Chip - my wife has something like this on my honey-do list - I think bench tops will be painted vs stained otherwise I may have too much wood look - I'd like to send you a photo and get your thoughts (breakfast nook) - addiitionally, did you consider angling the backrest?
Most of my friends that use this for transferring in order to carve, use the lacquer thinner vs the acetone. Your acetone results were much better than mine, again, my end result is to carve the image, so only transferring vs using carbon paper and tracing. Nice to see the comparison! Polycrylic was a new one for me.
Very well thought out and gorgeous - totally appeals to my OCD- I just need my son to vacate the premises first - maybe the wife too :) as they will use my stuff and never put it back. Well written and well executed !
Dumpster Wood Electric Guitar (Using Basic Hand Tools)
Dude, I'd love to see you stuck on a deserted island, because your use of frugal tools, and items around the house to compensate are nothing short of ingenious. I'd like to see your other work. As basic as it sounds, just the cork and sandpaper made me feel like a child, and I've been working with my hands for a living or hobby for 30 years... You should submit this to some magazines that would likely pay for the article. Great detail, and great resourcefulness. (For all I know you own Family Handyman magazine or Woodworking or something, but I think not)
