On June 23, 2014 the Stumpy Nubs Woodworking “fan thread” set a record. It is the first thread that became too big for the internet! After nearly half a million views and 67,550 posts, the traffic finally became too much for even the largest (and best) woodworking community on the web to handle. So we’ve taken the unprecedented...

Most know that Martin Sojka was the guy who started Lumberjocks. He sold it to Escalate Media a couple of years back, and finally left completely a while ago. I thought he was gone for good, until an hour ago. That’s when I got a Facebook message from him telling me about a new website he’d created. He said: “there was a bit...

When is the video problem going to get fixed? - 26 replies
It’s been a looooooooooong time since they disabled video embedding. Spammers were using it, and we all hate spam. But you know what I hate even more? Not being able to watch video here. This site is run by a company, not a guy in a basement on a Packard Bell somewhere. You’d think the problem could be fixed in at least a month...

Secret New Project: What is it and how does it work? - 34 replies
I’ve been laid up with an non-shop related injury, so I used to time to draw up a new workshop fixture I’ve been thinking about. Here’s a sketchup image. Can you tell me what it is and how it works? Here’s some hints: Size- 4 feet tall, about 30” wide and 36” deep.Construction- 3/4” plywoodOther- I...

Good deal I found on files if you need any - 9 replies
I found thin on ebay and I bought a couple boxes today. This guy has boxes of vintage files of all kinds for a really good price. I pay $6 each for tapered files to sharpen hand saws at Woodcraft. I can get a dozen here for $10 and he combines shipping. I can’t vouch for him as a seller yet since I just found it, and the listings are about...

How would you build "The Ultimate Shop Cart"?????? - 60 replies
I’m planning on making a shop cart on the next episode of Blue Collar Woodworking and I’ve been asking everybody I know what they would put on theirs. What I mean is, a mobile table/bench/cart sort of thing that could be rolled around the shop and used for assembly, as a work surface, anything and everything. The top would be a wo...

9 inch Radial Arm Saw blade... any suggestions? - 29 replies
I have a couple radial arm saws and I want to dedicate one to just miter cuts. I want a good blade for it, somewhere in the under $150 price range. I know a lot of good 10 inch blades, but 9 inch is harder to find. Forest has one but they want near $300 for it and that’s just nuts. Any 9 inch RAS or CMS users out there have a suggestion?

In defense of LumberJocks' no win situation - 105 replies
I usually don’t get involved in the little spats that pop up on this site from time to time, but there has been a rash of threads lately ripping on the moderators for allowing too much politics and arguing. And since there’s nothing worse than a rash, I want to offer what I believe is some balance to the subject. I like LumberJocks. I d...

HELP!!! Blue Collar Woodworking needs your opinion! - 74 replies
This is our first “season” and it is a learning experiance for us. I’m trying to establish the direction of the show, fill the niche that I originally intended. That has led to some significant changes over the months the show has been on. The first episode bears little resemblance to the latest episode if you really look at th...

It’s a fact. No sense in denying it. It is what it is and that’s the way it is. You are bound to tick someone off without the least bit of intent. It comes naturally to a format like this where words can mean one thing to one person, and another thing altogether to someone else. The main cause is simple, the written word lacks the be...

I have one of the many Delta clone bandsaws. My local woodcraft has a riser block kit for a Grizzly bandsaw on clearance for CHEAP, so cheap that I though of trying it out. Now, I know all the cons about putting a riser block on a saw, so no need to go into them here. I just want to know if anybody has any idea how likely it is to fit. Are Gr...

Charles Neil has always been known as the “finish king” of woodworking. I am quite certain he was spraying the rails of his baby crib while his diaper was full of shellac. (Too much? Sorry…) Anywho… Lately he’s been asking for people to tell him about their finishing problems so he can address them in an upcoming...

This weekend on Blue Collar Woodworking we are beginning a three month project: “The ultimate tool cabinet build”. But since it would be pretty boring to just watch us make a cabinet, we’re going to pack those episodes full of extras. For example, the first part of the series, set to air this weekend, will feature a shop mad...

I’m building the ULTIMATE tool cabinet. Well… I hope it will be. I originally started this thread to get ideas from the LJ community, and this is what I cam up with… LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK… First, it is pretty large, over 4 feet wide, 12 inches deep and almost 3 feet tall when it’s closed. It can mount on a w...

Do you make Pens? - 85 replies
I’ve been thinking of making some pens. Everybody seems to be doing it, and I have always had a weird fascination with writing instruments. I have a massive collection in my office. Plus, I have to make some gifts to get a few people off my back. SO… How may of you turn pens?Do you use mini turning tools or your regular ones?Give ...

Ever see a hand plane that adjusts like this???? - 57 replies
I’ve never seen a plane like the one I just bought today. Anyone want to take a stab at what type it is? (I posted this on the endless hand plane thread too) I got a good deal on a plane today, near perfect condition! I wondered if this one would stump anyone on here… Ever see one of these? It’s a bit shorter than the Sta...

I am a busy guy. I struggle just to find four or five hours a day to browse lumberjocks and make a few comments (and a few wisecracks). So Facebook? Twitter? I dunno… But, since I have been working on my show, I decided to try and leave updates on Facebook. Maybe try and reach a wider audience. After all, a podcast is more fun to make i...

Some complain about things here on LJ’s, but I want to say that, overall, this is by far the best forum on the web. I’ve been a member of Sawmill creek far longer than LJ’s, but today I asked for my account to be closed. Not because of any of the members, or any of the threads, or any of the arguments or any of the drama over t...

Join us, we’re having a blast. No nonsense, just sweet, sweet entertainment for woodworkers! Ok, and a little bit of nonsense… What's Blue Collar Woodworking? It’s been called “The greatest woodworking show since the invention of wood”, of course it was Stumpy who said that… The simplest way to look a...
