The Art of Wood Drilling

    I went to the “Spring” consignment auction this morning and as I poked around under the piles of snow covering the items that were lined up for sale, I pondered the meaning of Spring in Northeast Ohio. I decided to come up to the store instead of hanging around the auction all morning. I

The Lowly Drill Bit

    I was drilling some holes this morning for one of my projects, and it occurred to me that we haven’t talked about one of the most unappreciated items in the average homeowner’s toolkit, the lowly drill bit. Specifically we will cover drilling metals, drilling wood while it can be similar and even utilize some

   Now that Pancake Sundays are finished for this year and I don’t have to work on Sundays anymore, I was looking forward to catching up on my shut-eye a little. So if you see me at the store and I look a little bleary eyed behind the counter, there’s a reason for it, puppies.

His arch-nemesis were, of course, the enemy agents of KAOS (an international organization for evil). This weeks blog is about

Spring Steam-Up

    It’s not quite March yet, but this weekend Pancake time will begin in Burton. The schedule had been complicated this year because Easter is early, and will fall on the last Sunday in March. That will put it in conflict with the last traditional week of Pancake season (how dare they!). To make up

    Now that Winter is here (with a vengeance), my wife, Mary Anne, thought it was time for some Winter sports. I don’t ski or snowshoe, but I’ve been known to sled in my time. When I was younger that usually meant driving somewhere. There were hills near our house, but most of them had

Cast Iron Cookware

    Boy, it’s cold outside today, a high of about 10 degrees, with a minus something wind chill factor. There are only a few things that you can do to feel warm, even inside, in this kind of weather. One thing that always works for me though, is to cook up something on our 1948

Measuring Up, book 2

    Last time we talked about different types of measuring devices available at the hardware store to help with your projects. That covered only half the picture, Having a measuring tape is great, but you still have to know how to use it. This requires knowing how to set up the tape, and how to
