Hey guys before I get to the router blog I want to thank you guys for helping me out so much Ive steped up a level beacause of lumber jocks. Thanks too all. If you checked out my dovetail blog I got the porter cable 4212 dovetail jig. The bit that comes with it dosent fit my router. So I need a router with a 1 and a half chuck. I would like a plunge router but I wouldnt mind a fixed base. AJ
I know I am kind of late to get into the Craft Shows this year but first I need to decide if doing Craft Shows is the thing for me. Do I want to tie up my weekends with the shows. But first I guess a little background on me. I love woodworking. Seeing a finished project that someone likes and uses is enjoyable. As I am sure most do I hate sanding and I constantly work at trying to cut down on the sanding. I work full time in IT for a large company. I am leaving at the end of the year...
Also see this on Blogger at: http://blogspud.blogspot.com/2012/07/pulling-boards-from-pallet-without.html Hello all, I have been working with pallets lately and I thought to myself “what if folks want to do this too?” So I decided to share what I found to be the best way to remove a board from the pallet without destroying the pieces. Step 1: Cut the boards off of the top of the pallet.From the edges as close to the brace boards as possible, cut the top Boards (top bec...
We’re gearing up for some summer travel and out of town guests, so at the start of last weekend I figured there’d be no time for any woodworking for a few weeks. Well funny thing. During a post brunch lull on Saturday, I cracked open Toshio Odates classic book to where I last left off, his chapter on sharpening stones. Becoming a competent sharpener had been on the front of my mind after my recent hand plane acquisitions—one new and one old. The last part of the chapter desc...
Bowl Making! - Showing off some of our new toys in action!! #5: Kickstarting a Kickstarter Campaign for a New Lathe
OK It’s official – we have kickstarted a campaign on Kickstarter … we need a new lathe and apparently this is a method to get some funding.

Wednesday will be one week since I brought home the bees, and its probably time to add the second brood box on top of the first one. The bees are crazy busy and I’m sure they’ve built up comb on the additional frames in their box. I finished assembling the frames and have the box ready to go. The bee suit arrived in the mail today. I opted for just a jacket with an attached veil. Doesn’t look very sting proof, but it’s really baggy, so should be alright. I met a ...
Last time my blog was about making the groves. When this was done I would make the sides looking a little more convex, so I put a wheel again on the lathe and startet turning. But also this time it didn,t go as I would like. My gouge came into the wood and damaged the wheel as you can see on the picture below:..I was thinking about making a new one but first I would gif it a try to repair. So I made a putty from a black water stain mixed with PVA glue (50/50) and fill this with oak sanding ...
Hello everybody! </drnick> This is my opening post on Lumberjocks with a new project which I have seen done several times previously. I can squarely lay the blame for this one on Joe McGlynn, whose own derivation of the Thorsen House dining room cabinet planted the seed for my own attempt. I’m aiming to document my thought processes and decision-making through this blog, so hopefully it should bring something new to the table other than snapshots of work in progress. As of writing...
This is a view of the initial drawing I did for Paul’s table. This is the SU drawing realized in pine and MDF A blurry (sorry about that) shot of a cross section of the moldings which were a last minute addition to the table design. I never did go back and update the SU model. Paul didn’t get away from working for his table. Here he is properly attired to minimize damage to the clothing budget (yes he did get paint on what little he was wearing LOL). His big sister...
