Hello LJ’ers!!! It’s a beautiful Monday morning in Southern Indiana. And yes… I can say that about a Monday morning for two reasons… 1) I don’t have to go into work till noon. and 2) I have a glorious thing called coffee (just recently started drinking coffee). Anyhow… I’ve been cleaning and organizing my shop like cra...

Designing a Pie safe & have questions... ?? - 26 replies
Ok.. So I’ve been sick over the weekend and went into work today. After about two hours my boss sent me home. As long as I’m in bed and I don’t move around or talk I’m ok. (Allergies… talking makes me cough and moving… well… just drains me) Anyhow… A friend messaged me and asked me if I could ma...

Nice score of router bits :) - 34 replies
Ok… so I just posted a tool question. And while I’m at it I might as well share a little about my latest find. Last week was my birthday. A friend of mine is cleaning out his garage trying to make room for his car before winter. He came across a box of router bits. He’s a contractor and while on a job the guy had a bunch of ...

Help finding a part I need for a craftsman router - 14 replies
Ok guys… It’s been a while since I posted on here. I’ve been quietly lurking checking out projects but have been so busy in the shop that I haven’t been able to get on here. Today I’m on a mission. And I don’t know why I didn’t check here first. It would have saved so much time. I’ve called and ...

I don't know... But this stain don't look right.... - 21 replies
Getting ready to stain a project. Brand new cannot Rustoleum Early American stain. When I opened it I thought it looked a little light. Then I went to stir and found crud all settled to the bottom. Of course it was the last can in this color. Does this need to just be mixed well??? Or is it old and needs to be taken back?

So… I’ve been looking back at some of my old projects. Once I started getting better (not great… just better) at the cutting and assembly of my projects, I’d be pretty happy with my project… till I’d get to the finishing. Then everything would fall apart. And the wonderful project I had just been working on is...

Happy 2014!!! Got any SHOP related resolutions? - 35 replies
Well… Happy New Years to my FAVORITE group of woodworkers. I don’t know about you… but 2013 was a roller coaster. It definitely had it’s ups and downs but my favorite thing about it is that I was able to get an INDOOR shop of my own. Going from a pallet bench and plastic tables outside to a small one car garage of my very...

Ok… So I really hate to paint wood. And I hate it even more now that several of my Christmas orders were asked to be painted. But… You do what they want. So I have this small table I made. It’s done except that I need to attach the top to the base. I haven’t done this due yo the fact that I’m not sure what to do ...

Well… I can’t really call this a shop accident. But it looks like I won’t be I’m the shop for a couple of days. I walked out my back door to go to the shop. Hit a small… Smallest ever… patch of ice. How??? I have no idea. But I fell and hit… I hit HARD!!! I hurt everywhere. Mostly my left side. But reall...

So… After being sick most of last week and all four kids being on fall break this week… I haven’t had much time to get on LJ’s. And when I got up this morning I didn’t even know what I had planned for today either. But it was decided for me pretty quickly. There was a knock at the door literally within five minutes ...

Hmmmm…..???? Lets see about this. Some may say that my passion for woodworking is off cause I’m a girl. And yes… I’m a girly girl. My favorite color is pink. I like chick flicks (and action & suspense & thriller lol). I absolutely love men (no offense).... And yes… I LOVE power tools and building things. BUT...

Plywood is not my friend. - 34 replies
Well… Usually I get all my lumber free. Needed to buy some plywood though. That’s one thing I never find free. So I went to Lowes and bought me a sheet of 1/4 pine ply. Wasnt sure of the exact dimensions (plus I don’t trust their measuring). So instead I just had them cut it in half for easier transport. Ugh! Yep̷...

Ok. So… I’ve been making this shoji frame (room divider) for my mom. (Thanks to JSB for the plans and video). I had it all ready to stain and finish. My mom and I had discussed what she wanted for the inside panels. BUT… I decided to bring her over and show it to her before I went any further… JUST TO BE SURE. LOL Here...

Last year I found that our community had a Habitat for Humanity ReStore. If you haven’t heard of it before they are amazing. Well… if you are like me and love that kind of stuff it is. :) Last weekend they had their annual warehouse sale. It’s when they open up their warehouse to the public. This warehouse is where they stor...

Shop safety at a young age :) - 13 replies
You may have seen my post from yesterday about the new compound miter saw I got for my birthday from my mom yesterday. My shop is all clean and I was out there today filling some holes with wood filler and I had a special little guy come out and help me. He thought my shiny new saw looked cool and wanted to see it work. BUT…. Before I was ...

So… My birthday is this coming Thursday. While working on the shoji frame today my miter saw decided to throw another fit today. So my dear sweet mother bought me a new miter saw today. I LOVE IT!!! I could have gotten something bigger but I’m completely happy with this. I got the Kobalt 10” Sliding Compound Miter Saw. I...

I guess some cleaning is in order.... - 51 replies
I walked into my shop and just froze at the door. Somehow in my mind… I had left it a bit cleaner than this. Looks like I’m going to need to do some cleaning up. I’m a messy woodworker and throw things everywhere… But what the heck was I thinking? I usually don’t leave it this much of a mess. Maybe it just says that...
