I decided to build one of those Japanese Style tool boxes for all of my hand tools (building it entirely out of hand tools(maybe)), and to store it in my basement because my garage gets way too humid in the summer and things get a bit rusty.
I love your storage for the spoke shave and the chisels, I'm absolutely stealing those for one of the trays.

Well you'd just be re-stealing them. Based them on google image searches but definitely not my original design.

I am just going to put these here. The current barometric pressure outside is 30.12 - FYI. Almost all the pots I have used couldn't pull more than -27 Hg at this altitude so I don't know why all of a sudden I am getting well over -30.

Can redwood sawdust cause a bad sore throat? I can't explain where it came from with the social distancing, mask wearing, not touching anything, washing and disinfecting constantly, no one else in my house leaving or interacting with anyone. And I don't feel sick at all otherwise.

All sawdust can, definitely. And the more you expose yourself to it, the more sensitive you get over time. I know it's not super possible right now, but get yourself a good respirator for wood working.

In the land of Hyrule, there echoes a legend. A legend held dearly by the Royal Family tells of a boy... A boy who, after battling evil and saving Hyrule, crept away from the land that made him a legend... Done with the battles he once waged across time, he embarked on a journey...

Some wood dust is really bad, but any wood dust isn't great. Really, the best thing is to use a respirator when any kind of dust is involved.

This should keep me busy for a while, ripped out the carpet and trim in the basement. Floors are not flat enough for the planned LVP and Iím considering my options. The high spots are to higher to ignore. Professionals are coming to refinish the upstairs wood floors in a few weeks, my wife is impressed with my timing.

Get a floor grinder? Theyíre not expensive to rent for a day and with some course grinders you could probably smooth it down sufficiently in that time. Barring that, if itís way up and down all over the place, pour some self leveling mix?

That is one of options we have decided to look into, the others being concrete overlays, epoxy, and polished concrete.

Not sure what's going in it, it was a mother's day gift to my wife from our 3 year old son. I let him squeeze the trigger on the nail gun once while I was holding it. He helped the most by wandering off and watching cartoons instead of picking up my tools and pretending they were spaceships and hiding them.

Wasn't sure if there was a book making or paper craft thread, but this looks like a good place to post this. Ever since the quarantine started I've been reacquainting myself with my love of bookbinding by making my own sketchbooks. Still pretty rusty but I think these turned out alright:



The left two are stab bound, the gold leafed one is case bound. The green has really nice Tomoe River paper so I can sketch with my fountain pens and the other two are made with a cotton-rag printmaking paper.

It's really nice getting back into this. Like seeing an old friend.

Thank you! I really appreciate that. Instead of writing out the process, here are a few photos to document a pocket-size stab-bound book I made today. I'm not a great writer, so I thought this would be easier to understand than my bizarre grammar. Hopefully you'll find it interesting!

The materials you need are pretty basic: paper, thread, a ruler, a needle, and an awl (or other sharp, pointy object). If you're cutting your paper to a desired size, then you'll need also an exacto or mat knife and a pencil. I'm using some fancy Lineco stuff, but any needle and thread will work just as fine.


(of course, a helper might be required)


Take one of your pages and create a stab-hole template. Measure and stab two holes near the corners with your awl .5in from each side. Then measure and stab two more holes roughly equidistant from each other as well as the two outer holes. Using the template, stab the four holes on each of the pages.


If you want to, you could now clip the pages together with a couple of binder clips and trim the edges if you are concerned about pages not being perfectly flush. I'm not worrying about that here, as this specific book is meant to be knocked around in a pocket so I don't mind if it's not perfect.

Once done stabbing the pages, pull a length of thread about as long as your arm. Thread the needle and tie a knot to keep the thread from slipping off.


Now we're ready to start binding! To try and keep this simple, I'm going to label the holes #1 through #4. In the following pictures #1 will be the hole farthest from my hand and #4 being the closest.

Start the binding on hole #2. Thread the needle through the entire book block and pull the needle and thread through. Leave a couple inches of thread (called a tail) on the other side. You'll need it later.


Thread the needle through the same hole again and pull taut. Now you should have a little loop of thread over the spine of the book.


Thread the needle through #3 and create a loop the same way we did through #2.


Do the same with #4. This time, however, we're going to push the needle through the same hole twice, creating a loop on the spine as well as the edge of the book.


Now we're going to push the needle back through #3 and #2 until we get to #1. No need to make loops this time, just make straight runs of thread between each.


Make the same two loops over the spine and edge as you did on #4. You should now have to lengths of thread on the same side of the book; one attached to the needle and the other the tail.


Pull the needle under the thread around #2 and tie a knot or two.


Once that's done, you now have a complete book!


I'm in the process of making a case bound book but because that uses glue it'll need a couple of days for drying and pressing before photos can be taken. Once it's done though, I'll be happy to document that process too.

That's exactly it! I don't have a shop of my own so I use the ATX Hackerspace to make my dumb things. A lot of the communal stuff gets beat up real bad so I prefer to bring my own.

I'd keep the tools stored nice and orderly in my place instead, but we live in a small-ish condo already bursting at the seams with stuff so this was the next-best option.

We closed about two months ago and they're trying to reopen now but it's been a mess. The board is trying to be very cautious but (some of) the membership is being all weird with "well, why can't we do X or Y or Z instead?" I get the consternation from those that actually use the space for their livelihoods, but for hobbyists like me... Man, you can chill the gently caress out for a while longer. Nobody's going to die if you can't build a stepstool or 3D print a minifig for a few more weeks.

From what I understand, ATXHS is an absolute mess compared to yours. Physically, organizationally, metaphorically, take your pick. I'm keeping my membership active so it stays afloat because Austin needs something like it, but if someone put together a new one... I'd jump ship in a hot minute.

The "cyclone" is a bucket topper that Home Depot sells for $40. It fits one of their 5 gallon buckets. Seems to be pretty effective, keeps my filter from getting clogged and much easier to empty. I went with a Laguna Fusion 2 saw.

You might be able to get 2x4 Kaizen sheets more easily, but it will still require shipping which can get obnoxiously expensive. 5S Foam might be another option, although I've never seen it in person.
