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....

Entry level saw - 17 replies

I am starting a project for my grandkids that will require a lot of fret saw work. Not looking forward to that. I started thinking about an entry level scroll saw for two reasons. One, it will help me get my project done quicker and probably more accurate and two, I might even like scroll sawing. I did some research on the scroll saw websi...

Shoe wax - 16 replies

I am working on finishing a box that I’ve been using to experiment with Meltonian shoe cream as the finish. I sand the wood to 1000 grit and then use the shoe cream as the finish. The walnut and rosewood come out glass smooth and low lustre. I like the look. Does anyone else use shoe polish?

The agony of small hinges and #2 screws... - 2 replies

After suffering through many episodes of cussing and swearing at tiny hinges and tiny screws I think I have hit on the solution. The small racheting screwdriver is from Lowes and comes with 0, 00 and 000 bits.The center finder is a Stanley and I had to grind the tip a bit so it would sit in the hinge hole for punching.The screw starter is...

Breakthrough... - 19 replies

I have been dinking around with woodworking for about six years and seriously dinking around with woodworking for about three. It has taken me this long to come to the realization that what I’ve been hearing about using decent saws is true. Everything I read and all the videos I watch talk about how the saw is supposed to help you make t...

My Italian Box - Part 1 - 4 replies

A lot of you guys salvage all kinds of wood and reuse it to build some very nice projects. My wife and I are having the countertops in our kitchen replaced with granite. When at the “granite store” I saw this box that had a few pieces of Italian tile in it. Asked the salesman if I could have it and he said yes. I’m guessing...

Precision - Woodworkers vs Electricians - 40 replies

Let me start out by saying if there are any electricians in the audience that are also woodworkers please take this critique with an open mind. I just finished replacing three light switches with timers and here are my comments:1. Breaker panels leave a lot of room for improvement when it comes to labeling.2. Wall outlet boxes sit cockeyed,...

Photography Studio - 28 replies

I just read a post by Todd Clippinger from about six years ago on how he sets up his photo shoots when taking pictures of his furniture. Pretty nice. I got to thinking about the projects I’ve seen on LJ’s. Background for the project pictures range from the driveway to some pretty elaborate background setups. I think some of you a...

Tablesaw fence/Router fence combo - 1 reply

As you can see I have my router table mounted to my tablesaw. It would be great if I could use my tablesaw fence (sometimes I do) as my router table fence, which would also include dust collection. A router spits out a lot of saw dust and I would like my tablesaw fence to have an opening that I could open and attach a hose to when routing. A ...
