I got the idea to build a TV console cabinet with a built-in TV mount, which is much tidier and more flexible than mounting the TV to the wall. This is part 1 of 3, in which I weld and paint the metal frame.
Here's a quick video about my favorite obscure tool: The Saw Trax Coro-Claw. It's only job is to cut Coroplast (corrugated plastic) and it can only do it in one direction, along the flutes.
I came up with a really simple way to make sure I always put my drill bits back in the right spot.
I hate all the little boxes that drill bits, router bits, and hex bits come in. They take up a lot of space in the drawer and add an extra step when you want to grab a bit. So, I design and 3d print trays to replace them and help organize my bit drawer.
I'm building a TV console cabinet with a welded steel frame. I figured it would be a good opportunity to talk about my process for painting new steel. It takes a lot of prep work to get a good finish.
In this video I make three end grain cutting boards out of walnut. They came out beautifully!
Here's a tour of my 900sf workshop in an enormous warehouse building in Oakland. I also talk about why I'm planning to move out.
My shop is in a giant old warehouse building in Oakland. It has a 5-ton crane that runs along a track in the ceiling. I thought it would be interesting to attach a GoPro to it to get a top-down photo of the shop.
I model and print a thread adapter so I can use a cymbal stand from my drum set as a microphone stand, and ramble a bit about how I love 3d printing because it enables you to solve weird problems like this.
Building a 4' x 8' assembly table for my workshop. Built with a welded metal based, but will be used primarily for woodworking projects.
Every time I get a new 3D printer filament I print a pug as a test. Many of these filaments came from a Maker Box subscription. Let's unbox a Maker Box, see what filaments it came with, and print some new pugs for my pug army.
This is a tour I shot of my old shop last summer, just before packing it up and moving to my current location.
I built this table years ago as an out-feed table for my table saw, but it was the only big work surface I had so I ended up using for everything, including welding. It's gotten really beat up, which has made not usable for other tasks. I decided I need dedicated tables for specific purposes. So I added some sheets of 12-gauge steel to turn this table into a full-time welding table. Later on I'll build additional tables for other purposes.
