Do you find the sound deadening material makes a substantial difference in noise outside of the workshop?

It definitely helps with noise and temperature

As always if you find you've cut a little to much. Go immediately to Harbor freight and get a board stretcher! Remember to keep a little levity for your mistakes.

Good job on the video, great ideas for someone who is fairly new to woodworking. And for those of us who have been doing it for a while too! I know I tend to get a little bit lazy at times and end up with a few extra pieces of firewood LOL!

Hi, I am wondering how you identify wood type / wood species from scrap lumbar ? The color and wood density is the only parameters I can think of but many wood species share similar color and wood density so whats the best way ? Is there a good guide or book on the subject ?

Some great and handy tips. I'm looking at convenience of regularly used tools and when I get a new tool I keep all the spare parts in 1 container. Before I used to put on shelf and eventually moving them around then forgetting what tool they belong to.

Hello, could you do a video on 20 plus French cleat ideas for a pottery studio. You could do a few repeats and some new ones. 1. Cubbies for bags 2. Apron hangars 3. Small tools 4. Pencils and markers and small wooden tools 5. Garrottes and shipikki 6. Ribs and kidney tools 7. Throwing bats (disks for the pottery wheel head) 8. Texture rollers and roulettes 9. Stamps 10. Cookie cutters 11. Bluetooth speakers around room 12. Party platters for potlucks during long kiln firings 13. Masks and particulate masks for glaze mixing 14. 26L Bucket storage 15. Reference book hold open with a plastic guard for keeping the step by step article from getting splashed with slip. So it can be in front of you as you try a new project- no one wants to wash their hands and dry them every step of the way. 16. Glaze and coloured slip containers bottles 17. Test tile library, 18. Test tile palette a short shelf for up to five test tiles to rest on to see how they look together. 19. Texture rollers can go in tubes 20. Packing rolls of bubble wrap for shipping 21. Inspiration image of the day- put a foam back in a shadow box with a hard board that presses the photocopy of an inspiring pot against the window, you can store 50 behind the front one. 22. Dowels inclined up to hold kiln furniture accessibly when loading the kiln. They have holes in the middle it works perfectly, 2 meters away from the kiln for fire safety. Stilts, spurts and saddles get their own storage and by length. 23. Mug display grid. - a hanging shelf grid with each square displaying a mug by a different artist- a photo of the mug on the left side, info about how it was made on the right- artist, year, clay body, firing cone, which kiln, techniques, weight height, who has liked it, used it. 24. Throwing list for day- three or four pegs to hang a bookmark sideways made of clay saying what is being thrown(it has a centred hole about 1cm ) then on the left is a smaller tile with a number stamped on- 3, 7, 14, 21, 28, 35, 77. 98. 112. 25. Mason stains in little ziplock baggies. On a dowel organized by rainbow with blue at the front. 26. Orton cone boxes 27, spray bottles full of water 28. Soda sprayer 29. Goggles And most tools will get wet so having a 3degree tilt for water to run off will help. Some tools are hot like kiln furniture so it needs hardwood or even a ceramic peg- no plastic for hot stuff. 30. Extruder plates/extruder dies 31. Paddles 32. Sponges all sizes 33. Dottles 34. Clearly labelled Slab roller canvases for brown clay , porcelain, low fire and stoneware. This prevents low fire dust exploding the porcelain in the kiln at the higher temperatures. 35. Storage labeled for wooden slabs for using wire to cut at a controlled height. 36. Fold out ware board shelves. Like one you did for wood storage 37. Paint brushes- European hairy side up, Asian, hung from pegs. 38. Eyewash station 39. First aid kit for bandaids 40. Full on first aid kit and book. 41. Throwing and trimming chucks. 42. Cottling boards and clamps 43. YumI or bow harps. 44. Kiln was cartons 45. Plaster bat for throwing station- at a 3degree tilt- for wet clay to be quick reclaimed. 46. Sprigg mold 47. Surform tool and spare blades. 48. Sandpaper sorter 49. Hand wash liquid soap holder and towel 50. Hand wipe towel holder by throwing station 51. Cattle syringes for mixing wild clay tests 52. Drill and big glaze mixing bits I’d be happy to answer questions. I think you would draw in more viewers with this woodworker/ potter crossover and you could find a local pottery studio to do a beneficial install for them! It could be a series, one long one. Or you could have the show end with you dropping off the new French clear solution and interact with them to explain it/ ask about it. Love what you are producing and the friendly enthusiastic way you do it. Thank you so much for your work!

#20, if you do, make sure there are no nails or screws where you cut! #11, get into the habit of just cutting off the factory ends, do it when cutting to length, goes faster than checking them all

Question I had been forgetting to ask you.. In your opinion do/would you trust stud finders? Thanks in advance & may all be blessed!

Vor 4 Monate
vashon100
vashon100

One of the problems with some stud finders is you don't know if you're at the stud's center or edge. Using SLC's recommendation and a couple more pokes, you can find the span of the stud and decide where the center is.

Or use a magnet to find the screws or nails fixing the plasterboard or drywall

If it is a good brand, then I would say sometimes. If you need to be 100% sure, once the stud finder locates a stud, then use a very thin nail to tap through the drywall to make sure before making a bigger hole. Most drywall is 1/2" to 3/4" thick, so as long as the very thin nail is just over 1" it should be easy to use. Just tap it lightly, and if there's a stud, you will definitely feel the nail get harder to drive in. My father taught me this trick many years ago and it has saved me a few times.

Here's a tip for anyone looking for classes: check at your local community center. Not all the classes are free, but many of them are, and those that aren't often have very reasonable tuition. You can also look for woodworking clubs and guilds in your area. Some of them have organized classes. Also, look and see if there is a FabLab in your area! Fablab is a non-profit makerspace operating around the globe, bringing mini manufacturing capabilites and STEAM education to communities. They typically have full woodshops, as well as sewing rooms, art studio space, and or course, laser cutting, 3D printing, CNC making capabilites.

As for quality tools, go to yard sales. A person can find brands like Makita, de Walt, etc at a fraction of the price. "The reason is my husband passed away and I don't want them." Sometimes you can equip your whole shop at a yard sale....

The one thing that I disagree with. And this is just something that drives me NUTS. Is hanging any hand tools on a wall. And I can't believe everybody does it. I can't stand reaching for a tool, that is hanging on a wall and it's all dirty and dusty. IT ABSOLUTELY DRIVES ME CRAZY. And you know darn well, if a tool is sitting out or hanging on a wall. It's going to get dirty or dusty. So I have ALWAYS kept my hand tools in a drawer or cabinet. This way they are ALWAYS clean and ready to use. And I don't get crap all over my hands and or my project.

I completely understand where you are coming from. In my case, I usually blow out my shop once or twice a year but there is still a little dust on occasion.
