The Backyard Rocket

Formerly known as “Patio Oven and Wok Burner from an old Fire Extinguisher” – Part I and Part II 🙂

But, looking at it and observing it for while, I like “The Backyard Rocket” much better… I deem it finished so far and waiting for action. Unfortunately, work has me again and I didn’t have a chance of firing it up and have a shot at it, but I like the outcome so far and I will put it to use as soon as I can.


Even more Micarta

I made another plate of homegrown micarta. This time in red – afaik, the fabric was a window curtain in its former life. Since it says „back to the grindstone“ for me these days, I wonder when I might be able to put it to use 🙁


Patio Oven and Wok Burner from an old Fire Extinguisher (II)

Next part of the burner is done. I took great efforts to fabricate four identical (okay, almost identical) pot holders and weld them in place correctly. Eventually, it worked and I’m proud that I achieved some ugly but correct welding lines instead of lining up separate spot welds.


Patio Oven and Wok Burner from an old Fire Extinguisher (I)

I sort of inherited an old fire extinguisher from the previous owner of our northern germany dwelling. Expired and last tested in 2002 it was standing in the corner mostly unnoticed, but now, after almost three years I decided to put it to use. What better afterlife use could there be for a fire extinguisher than to become a fire place 🙂


Making Micarta – Test II

 

So after another test fabricating micarta I grabbed the first one again and lo and behold: After 48 hrs more curing time it has become hard and durable! Mental note: The thicker the material the more time needed to cure (who would have thought?) and the specification on the package was just plain wrong.


Making Micarta – Test I

I’m trying to make my own Micarta at the moment because I want to use it for a new knife project. I made a simple press, took an old t-shirt and some epoxy and started.


New Bevel Grinding Jig

Without further a do, my bevel grinding jig for knife making just … disappeared … (somehow, things in my shop seem to have a tendency for that when I’m around…). So I made a new one, this time from aluminium, since it’s simply easier to work on for me.


Salvaged Workbench Drawer

I saved an old cabinet drawer from waste disposal because a toolbox of mine fit in like a glove. Two drawer slides and two boards cut to shape and length did all of the job. It’s a very convenient workbench upgrade.
