My Beginning Days #1: Starting My Journey

12-11-2013 08:31 PM by Kaa162 | 3 comments »

So today I decided to start blogging about my journey. Not so that anyone would actually read it, but mostly as a way for me to look back and see where I started, assuming I get some place with the whole thing. If you read this, you should know a few things about me first… One, I am a school counselor by trade, so I have NO formal training in anything with my hands. What I know about the mechanics of things honestly could be put in a children’s book written and illustrated b...

Well thanks to everyone who checked out the live feed. It was our first time doing somethign like that on location so it was pretty cool. We learned alot about what we need to do in the future and it will only get better. The show was awesome. I got to meet Norm, hang out with David Marks, and even saw the Blue Man Group. Cant beat that. :) If you guys ever get a chance to go to a show like that, I highly recommend it. It was HUGE and was an experience I will not soon forget. Marc

Popular Woodworking Bookcase Design Contest Entry

04-20-2008 06:36 AM by leonmcd | 3 comments »

I’m very new to Sketchup and I’ve had more trouble than most learning how to do anything useful with it. Just in the last two days I made major progress. I’ll probably do a separate forum or blog post to discuss my trials and tribulations with SketchUp. For the project, I wanted something light and airy. I think this bookcase has the lightness I wanted yet sturdy. The weight of the bookcase rests on a base so that there is no weight on the curved ends of the side rail...

Learning to apply Danish Oil on small project - Scraper Holder

04-05-2009 06:26 PM by woodworm | 3 comments »

Today (night in my country), I post a question on how to apply Danish Oil, an oil finish that I never had chance to use before. Furtunately a newly opened ACE Hardware Store is just 5 minute drive from my home. So I managed to get a can of Danish Oil and also a can of BLO.With the support and guides from many fellow LJs, I’ve more confident to try it now, eventhough I’ve been frequently reading books on finishing that covers from oil finishes to water base finishes but as I said ...

wood-turning classes?

12-10-2009 03:05 AM by swirlsandburls | 3 comments »

Hi all, I am thinking about offering beginner-to-intermediate turning classes in my workshop. I enjoy teaching, especially to enthusiastic students. I am looking for inputs from the Lumberjocks community about the ins and outs of offering paid classes to a variety of age groups. I am leaning towards very small class sizes, perhaps even one on one apprenticeship approaches for the more serious students. What do you think? visit my website to see the kinds of work I can teach about: www.swir...

Twin-Sized Bed With Pull-Out Desk, Closet, and Dresser #4: The desk unit

01-28-2010 05:53 AM by gbarteck | 3 comments »

While all of the subassemblies of the second bed are the same as the first, I needed to build the desk unit and dresser units as “mirror images” of how they were built on the first bed, due to how the bed would be situated in the bedroom. Since the dresser unit is at the “head” end of the bed, and the desk must be oriented so that the chair goes on the same side of the desktop as the dresser (a change from the first bed design… see entry #2 in this series), th...

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a blog post on sanders because I have gotten a lot of questions about them. There are basically 3 sizes of sanders hand sanders, benchtop sanders, and stationary sanders. Hand sanders include palm sanders, random orbit sanders or ROS, detail sanders, and belt sanders. Palm sanders vibrate back and forth and you can get in corners with them because the bottom of the sander is a square shape. Random orbit sanders spin and vibrate and you get a really polishe...
