I’ve got some things with brown stuff on them. Lesser men call it rust; true LJ’s don’t recognize this “rust” as a worthy foe. To follow is a real-time electrolysis setup. . I’m no expert on electrolysis, but being stupid has never stopped me from doing stupid things. I’m going to blog an electrolysisi system for rusty tools in real time. You accept all risk, as I’ll be deemed incompetent pre-trial, so good luck in the civil.. First...

With LumberJocks expanding and GardenTenders growing so nice, I think it’s the right time to add the third related site into the mix. It was requested numerous times here on the LumberJocks… the site with the same format covering all about home building, remodeling, decorating and improvement. Debbie came up with the perfect GardenTenders name but now we’re struggling a bit with this new name. The requirements are: It should fit the LumberJocks, GardenTenders naming ...
We’re beginning this new year with big news. LumberJocks, as well as HomeRefurbers and GardenTenders joined Escalate Media few days ago. I know this is a really big surprise to you, it still is for me, and I want to share with you the history behind this decision… This was easily the hardest decision I had to make in my life so far and I’m still full of mixed feelings but I also believe that it is a change for the better that had to happen sooner or later. LumberJo...
In honor of Lumberjocks 3rd birthday, and my 1st anniversary of turning, I am giving away this hollow form vase. I turned my first bowl March 4, 2008. I have posted most of my turnings over the last year. Lumberjocks has been a great resource and inspiration to me. The kind words (even when I did not deserve them) and the insightful critiques (I deserve more critique) has allowed me to grow as an artist, a woodworker, and a person. For that I say “Thank You!” I have always named all my ...
After much internal deliberation I have decided to share that I have joined those included in table saw injury statistics. I do so hoping that perhaps my misfortune might help one or more in the Lumberjocks community, even if it is just a wake up call. Furthermore, without getting into a debate on the topic, I want to say that I believe my injury would not have occurred if I was using a Sawstop table saw. I will say a bit more on that later.On Sunday August 12, 2012 I finished making a cut...
Thanks to the creativity and hard work of Karson, Mark and Michael we are starting our first unique Woodworking Challenge! Karson sent the proposal to Glen Huey, Senior Editor of Popular Woodworking and asked him for their support in this challenge. Glen whole heartily agreed. Karson's proposal was to use the cover project from February 2007 issue #160 of Popular Woodworking - Thorsen House Side Table - as our challenge. When we have the Summer and Winter Awards everyone builds their o...
Aimed at those new to saw sharpening, this instructional video is 2 1/4 hours long and covers the theory, the tools and the practice of sharpening western saws. You get to look over my shoulder as I sharpen four saws – two backsaws and two hand saws. I’ll explain the saw sharpening process and how you apply it to different scenarios. I really hope you find it useful. As to the production quality, I’ve done the best I could. I had to record it outside, so there is a bi...
Chest-like object has suffered a bit of neglect, to be sure, and for that there isn’t much of an excuse. Except for these two words: Family and Job. :-) Where in the heck am I with this refurb? Last installment says I ‘completed’ the lower skirt, but what’s pictured includes a skirt that’s not yet permanently attached to the chest. Issue? Well, kinda. But that’s not what this installment is gonna cover. Instead of the base, I’ve moved to the middle of the chest to work the uppe...
Wow, seems like I do one blog post per year, so … here’s my annual installment. My last post was a bit prophetic, “handsaws in my future”. I had a hunch that this was the direction my shop habits were heading but I wasn’t 100% convinced until now. I like quiet, I like the smell of wood being cut, ive got a 10 month old at home who isn’t the most sound of sleepers, and ive got some “old soul” in me. This leads me on a new journey into making t...
