Retractable Green Screen

Retractable Green Screen

I have had a green screen for a few years now. I never use it, because of light issues and didn’t have any where to hang it. I have fixed both those problems. The first was the lighting. I have added three 4′ lights to the shop that greatly improves the over all brightness. To fix the hanging of the green screen I have came up with a way the make it retract up to the ceiling. The screen is 5′ X 10′ and I get plenty of coverage.  lets take a look at the design for the retractable Green Screen. Any and all links for materials will be below.  Continue reading “Retractable Green Screen”

Drill Bit Storage Cabinet

I needed to get all my drill bits in one place. This cabinet is going to fit under the drill press and store all the drill bit in my shop. Including the Kiss Drill Bit System from FastCap.

Hickory Box

Hickory box with Gorilla glue finish

I set out to accomplish two things with this build. One I wanted to try this new finish method I learned from “Ask This Old House” The showed a method of using Gorilla Glue for a finish and it turn out awesome. It looked easy enough so I wanted to do it. Second, I never build a box using grain matching techniques before. I wanted the grain to wrap around the box, also book match the lid panel.  That was the whole plan behind this build.

Plywood Cart

Plywood Cart with plans

Good friends at Tigerply .com and I is joining forces again. They are shipping me some plywood for a very large project coming up. They have agreed to fund my miter saw station that will be built this summer. You may remember the Yard connect four game – plans, Tigerply plywood was used for that project. The last time they shipped the plywood to me. It came on a semi-truck. The truck can not get close enough to the house to drop it. That’s why this cart was built. This cart can hold up to 24 sheet of plywood. Not that it would be easy to move with that many on it, but it can hold it. This will help with transporting the plywood from the truck to the shop, over 150ft. With multiple sheets of plywood being moved at once this will save my back. Plans are available in my shop. Plan are just one way you can help support the free content provided on YouTube. As always thank you for you support.
