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.

I made a deck on wooden playing cards from a 2×4. It was not a great video just a slide show of picture. Now nearly three years later. I have built and reach one of my goals. I could not be more pleased with the woodworking community and my followers. 10,000 subscribers, WOW!!!!

Soldering Station

Soldering Station

Sometimes things on your todo list just get pushed back and back. While building the DeWalt Scooter. I needed to repair a lot of wires and make new connections. I wanted to solder them and I did. What I quickly found out. I need a third hand to hold the wires together. Also had a hard time keeping all the item at one station. I fix these issue today. The Soldering station has a third hand also stores the soldering iron and the solder all in one place.

DeWalt Themed Mobility Scooter

While at the woodworking show in Indianapolis. My wife and I seen several mobility scooter at the venue. While holding all the stuff I bought and trying to find somewhere to sit to eat, one of these carts com rolling through with his products and a his food. I thought to myself that would be perfect for a place like this. So the next day, more out of curiosity then anything I looked on Craigslist for a mobility cart. I found a listing for $25.00, after reading the description I came to the conclusion that this cart worked and the owner just didn’t know how to fix the wiring. The owner just wanted to get rid of it. So I went after it. hints to the beginning of the build.

IsoTunes give away

IsoTunes Give Away/Winner announcement

Pete and Eric Murphy from IsoTunes was nice enough to give me a set of noise cancellation earbuds. I have been using them for about two weeks now and I really enjoy them. I have notice a few things like the weight and balance. The don’t hang to one side or the other. It also keeps my phone out of the shop elements, because I don’t have to use the phone to mute or take a call. This has sold me on the product along with the great sound and hearing protection. Let me tell ya, if you didn’t use protection before or not much at all, after a day of using these you will realize how loud your machines are. I want you to enjoy them as well. Lets do a give away.

Second Channel

Adding a Second Channel

I have been on the fence for a while about adding a second channel to YouTube. I have decided to pull the trigger. I though it might be better in the long run to have it and not need it, then need it and not have it.  This will free up the main channel for just projects. This will get to my core audience a more one on one experience and let me do anything I want on the second channel, be more myself.

There are times I get asked what camera equipment, what software, and what tools I use. I thought this might be a way to refer anyone who ask and give you a better idea of what kind of equipment I like to use. Of coarse I have some updates to do and other tools. The list below is a good start to my collection and will continue to add to this list and refer anyone who ask about what I use to this list. All the link are added and some tools has been updated sense I’ve purchased them. I provided the updated tool link, but have no experience with the newer version.

Picture Shoji Screen

Picture Shoji Screen

Was asked to made a picture frame that folds up as a room divider, or Shoji Screen. This was a fun build I would have done a few thing different if I did another one. I would assembled the rails and styles together, then used a rabbet bit and router. The only reason I didn’t do it this time was the rails are not the same thickness and would have been difficult to line the router bit. After the project I think it would have been easier then the rout I took. In the end the project still worked out and the customer, my brother, was still pleased. The Shoji Screen sits in his photography studio. Studio 58 in Cincinnati. Check it out on FB.
