I have always been interested in... - 1 reply
woodturning. I love to watch the Youtube videos of the professionals turning chunks of wood into beautiful works of art. But, I have never been able to justify a lathe until recently. I want to make small knobs and handles to go with the projects I make. So, I started looking at small lathes. One of the first things I noticed was all the ma...

I lost big on the deal. You can send donations to help me recover. PM if your heart tells you to help another woodworker. I will give you the address to send funds to. Thanks in advance for your generosity.

Tablesaw sled - 30 replies
If I have an accurate mitergauge why do I need a crosscut sled? Many times I’ve thought of building one but can’t find the justification to do so.

Dovetail question... - 11 replies
As I do more and more dovetails with my new dovetail guide I have found it is pretty difficult to get into the tight spots of the tail board to clean out waste. The steep bevel sides of my chisels damage the side of the tails. I have been looking at buying a dovetail chisel but the decent ones are pretty expensive and I’m not sure if a 1...

Knucklehead Club - 59 replies
I think it is safe to say that the intelligence level of most LJer’s on this site ranges from semi-intelligent to very intelligent (you place yourself wherever you feel comfortable). I also think it is safe to say all LJer’s realize that as they stand in front of the hunk of iron that they have just applied power to there is a point...

My response to another LJ... - 34 replies
Let me start out by saying 2014 will be different, at least for me it will. Thusly, I changed my signature so you could better understand my meaning. 2014 can be whatever you want it to be. I hope yours is great. 1. There is only one thing in life that I feel we truly own and control and that is our life…our living, breathing existence...

Please notice... - 19 replies
that I am in the correct forum for this post. Anyway, I wonder what happened to JustJoe? Have not heard from him lately and he is a pretty prolific (abundant, copius, bountiful, fertile) poster. Is it something one of you guys said? Shame on the culprit (miscreant, wrongdoer, offender). You may also be wondering why I threw similar words (syn...

qa723, 1523, d836 - 22 replies
Not sure which one to buy. One is cheap, one is moderately priced and one is pretty expensive for its age. On the other hand if I multiply the cost of the qa723 by the age of the d836 the 1523 is looking like the value purchase. What would you guys do?

Philosophically speaking... - 138 replies
I sometimes wonder about the mental level of Americans. When a show like The Walking Dead is in the top ratings and a thought provoking show like Rubicon is cancelled where are we? It seems like the most predictable comedies and reality shows are the food for the American brain. Even the “serious” shows seem to require throwing in th...

Facebook - 16 replies
A couple of my nieces and nephews, a cousin, some friends, my barberette are on facebook a lot. And, I mean a lot. I even have to schedule my haircuts through Facebook. I was thinking don’t they have anything better to do? As I thought about it I came to realize that Lumberjocks is kind of a facebook (avatarbook) for woodworkers. I prob...

Scrollsaw questions... - 89 replies
I assume when I start using reverse tooth blades the fuzzies on the back side of my board will go away. Also, I have searched Youtube and can’t find any videos to do with sanding blades. What are they used for and how? When making curved lines on my bandsaw I use a spindle sander to smooth the curve. What do I use on the curved scrollsaw c...

Scrollsaw injuries - 27 replies
Today as I was practicing using my scrollsaw I noticed that I was so focused on cutting to the line that my fingers got pretty close to the blade. I surely don’t want to be the first to post blood and gore shots of my first scrollsaw accident. Here’s the question. How serious can a scrollsaw encounter be? The blade I am using is only 1/64”...

Some may consider this religious...I don't. - 18 replies
But then maybe I do. Even politics could be involved. Anyway, I was sooooo happy to see Alabama get their butts beat last night. I have always considered the SEC a puffed bunch and Alabama even more so. Here’s why.If you look at the ‘bama schedule you’ll see they have two kinds of opponents, chumps and other SEC teams. If ...

No more religion, no more politics... - 54 replies
The title is my LJ resolution for 2014. As many of you know I have posted a few religious/political threads. I declare that there will be no more, at least from me. 2014 for me on LJ’s is going to be about woodworking and nothing but woodworking. I could have made this a private resolution but in my mind those are the easiest to break....
