Workshop update for Easter projects and to date!

Some old and new projects completed over the Easter break and last weekend.  Finally finished updating my wife’s file storage cabinet. As shown below this is part of a built in wardrobe that she uses for storing cardboard files The main problem with this is that they fall over and are hard to get to at the back. She has tried stands to separate the files but with limited success. I suggested using additional drawers […]

Workshop update – I had too much wood!

I found I had a typical small shop woodworkers problem, too much wood! It snuck up on me as I picked up some wood here and there until some of the loose pieces got in my way. I then looked at my wood rack (as shown below) and it was full so something had to be done. It was either get rid of wood (not desirable) or make something to use up some stock. I […]

Woodworking drill press injury but not from the drill bit

This happened on the third truck!     I should have learnt when this happened in July then this might not have happened last […]

All worked although the buffing wheel is totally dry so need to get some light machine oil. Work I want to get […]

New purchase – Portable Light Tent for photography in the Workshop

Purchased this from Photo-Shop-Studio in Sydney to use for my woodwork photography. I was having difficulty getting decent shots without background clutter and shop lighting is not great for photography. Not that I take a lot of photos but $95 total was not too much of an investment for a significant improvement. The tent folds up into a small package for storage which is great and they also sell bulbs ($20 each) that can be used in […]
