Remodeling a family cottage #4: Window casings and LED lighting

08-08-2013 09:25 PM by Craftsman on the Lake | 372 comments »

Well, it’s been awhile. I got all the oak planed and jointed and made all the window sills and casings and got them installed. I also installed the oak facing on the underside of the header from the load bearing wall I tore down a ways back. I installed some LED light strips on both sides of the header. They have an RF controller so that I can change colors, flash, strobe, blend, dim, etc. The power supply sits in a cavity on the wall where all the internet stuff resides. this will b...

My Favorite Glue Scraper

03-11-2013 08:37 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 324 comments »

Hey everybody! I have been very busy between working on my client’s projects, squeezing in a project for another contractor, and rebuilding my website. As if that wasn’t enough, I decided to shoot a video to share with you what my favorite tool is for scraping off dried or semi-dried glue as I worked on one of those projects. I am really excited to bring another video to the woodworking and DIY community, so I hope you enjoy and find it helpful. Your friend in the shop, Todd A....

Remodeling a family cottage #5: Window dressing

08-20-2013 09:25 PM by Craftsman on the Lake | 300 comments »

The past couple of days I have prepped some oak and cut it into the parts I need to make the architrave moldings in the living room. As you can see it consists of four parts. One thin strip, one cove, and two ogees. Stacked one atop another they make a nice window top. The side moldings are fluted. Simple design, not difficult to make and a nice effect that will not need any other window dressing like curtains..The parts: from left to right. thin strip, large cove, narrow ogee, wide ogee..Cap...

On The Workbench #1: Heated Handgrips for a Snowblower

02-24-2015 04:01 PM by ontheworkbench | 216 comments »

When I bought my snow blower, I only wanted one wide enough to fit through the side door on my garage, so I settled for a 26” wide unit. When looking across various models, I noticed that several premium (and larger) models had heated hand grips. After two winters with my snow blower, I thought it would be time to try to upgrade my basic rubber hand grips to heated one. I made a couple of videos on it, the first one shown how I did it for my MTD manufactured Troy-Bilt, and a second one...

Just the beginning

02-02-2016 03:45 PM by KC_Kid | 161 comments »

A bit of background… We (my wife and I) purchased our first house together in march of 2015 knowing that we would not move in until June. I talked her into a fixer based on the fact that myself and a buddy worked our way through college working for our landlord fixing up his old rentals and also flipping houses for him. So we swooped in and got a fixer out from underneath a local flipper because he was trying to nickel and dime the seller. What made this a good purchase is that the e...

Ghost Doorbell Ringing Problem...

01-01-2015 03:00 PM by Mark | 141 comments »

Hi All - Attached is a video I made a couple of days ago showing my fun with a little doorbell project – we literally had the doorbell ringing every few days at dinnertime for no obvious reason. It was kind of funny in hindsight, really, as we all were starting to develop sort-of an anti-Pavlovian response: we were all starting to ignore the doorbell! (And occasionally, there were real people out there who would be like… “Didn’t you hear me ringing?”) In...

The Super Dust Deputy

09-15-2013 10:58 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 135 comments »

I recently converted my single stage dust collector into a 2-stage system using the Super Dust Deputy by Oneida. In this video I share my initial impressions and performance of the system. I do not cover all the modifications although you see the overall setup and I give a basic price breakdown of the cost. I will cover the specifics of my conversion in the future. If you have been thinking of getting a Super Dust Deputy to convert your single stage DC into a 2-stage system, but are on ...
