I'm working on a machine that will make toilet paper ....

Seems like everyone wants 5 times the amount of toilet paper they will need in the next month, so if I can make some and sell it, I will survive through all this. I'm still trying to figure out which tree to shave it from an Oak or a Walnut, maybe Birdseye Maple? It may as well look good right out of the gate ....... from then on it's a lost cause. Oh Yea, splitters could be my biggest issue. Looking for volunteers to try it ..... IF I can get it figured out. Let's see, bandsaw or lathe?


Me, I stock piled Miller Light. It won't spoil if left at room temperature like milk, and is really good when chilled.

well, I did a few over the week. Drills side holder, bits cabinet, depth gauge, bandsaw circles jig, a cup coaster (tired of using piece of mdf :).
Still in process : end grain walnut cutting board, thin stock ripping jig, double sink bathroom vanity (waiting for drawer slides).
I almost sleep in the garage because of this lockdown situation :)

Lots of cool stuff above ......

No excuse for messy shops after this.

I've been working on an on-going project to be posting soon. It seems like putting the post and photos in order take more effort than the actual project. I spent one day on the mower, the spring blade sharpening and lube. The mower was probably 10 yrs old when I bought it 10 yrs ago but it still does the job and mows 3 acres. Today was the tiller, gonna need a big garden now... but it's got problems. Pulled the carburetor and cleaned thoroughly but it fires up fine runs like a top for about 4 minutes and then suddenly dies like it's out of gas, it's not. Honda motor on a Cub Cadet with probably less than 200 hrs. Tomorrow I'll sand.

Red face Cutting Boards

Making "3d look" cutting boards for family. Found the designs on google by searching for 3d cutting board and watching a video of someone making one. They are coming out very nice. No pics available yet.

I'm finally getting to things on my to do list ......

The list includes mounting the Harbor Freight pick bed hoist on the rear plate of my 1980 Chevy restoration project. This is the H-F photo, but mine will not go inside the standard pickup bed. Rather on a 3/8" thick steel plate on the rear of the bed allowing heavy objects, like a 35" X 12" wide BFG All Terrain tire from the box to the ground, If that ever would be needed....?










My application required some serious drilling through the 3/8" steel plate using my vintage Craftsman 1/2" drill and a H-F router speed controller to slow the RPMs down enough:

Not on my list, but needed my attention ....

The frog pond near the lake was slightly overflowing from all the rain we've had in the last 3 days. I decided I could help drain off as much as possible by back blading the dirt with the Steiner tractor where it was flowing across the path and then on the way towards the lake. I lowered the level of the dirt a few inches and it really started to flow because the pond level is about 18" above the lake level. There's no shortage of small projects to fill in between the bigger ones.......

Also on my list for the "resto" truck ....

As part of the "service truck" look a vise would look good on the side opposite the hoist, so ......


And yes, that's a Harbor Freight variable speed 1/2" dill going strong after 15 years of occasional hard use. I've only had on of 10 or so H-F electric hand held power tools "die" in 20 or so years. That was a hand held grinder which was really abused with years of metal grinding. Cost was somewhere around $10.00 at the time I bought it. It had more than paid for itself.

With my kitchen cabinets finally completed, I am gearing up for countertops which I will be pouring in place. Having never worked with concrete, this will be quite the educational experience. The hardest part is getting my wife to tell me what color she wants. This is critically important as I am colorblind and we might end up with pink concrete with florescent green swirls if I have to make the choice.

Well I picked up a well used and abused Delta Drum sander. These things get mediocre reviews, I checked all of the usual issues and it passed, plus it was stupid cheap. I've cleaned it up, replaced the conveyor belt(even though 6x48 belts seem to work), and have some 2" abrasive strips on the way. The only issue is it was in a garage that apparently had cats, and cat crap, and for some reason it still has a faint aroma to it even though I have thoroughly cleaned it.

I have been idle for a month aside from making some picture frame for my kids.
I was asked by someone to make a rocking chair which I turned down, never built a chair and don't have a lathe or room for one.
