I repeat, Sketchup is AWESOME!!!!!!

08-28-2009 09:01 PM by 1978 | 3 comments »

Wednesday night I opened Sketchup I had downloaded along time ago. I forgot how awsome this program is. I made a vow to myself that I am going to learn this program inside and out. I still can not believe it is free. I am happy to spread the word on how easy this program is. When I opened it up Wednesday, my plans were to just mess around alittle. But when I was finished, (an hour later) I had a 3D model of the display stand I plan to build for the Artistry in Wood show in November. Once...

There is also a bearing that I did not mention that is located in here. I guess the small hole is for lubricating with oil.

My first blog.

03-27-2010 08:21 PM by UdayDeshpande | 3 comments »

This my first blog entry here on LumberJocks. I am very glad to see all the seniors welcoming me to LJ. In one day it was too much for me. I registered with LJ, got so many comments, opened an account with flicker, exported my Sketchup rough sketch to .jpg format, uploaded it on flicker. Here is my planned project: Rough Sketch for the Wall unit 20” deep, 89” wide. Need to add legs/toe board. The plan is to make it frame-less from plywood.

A cross-grained fellow...

04-08-2010 10:15 PM by ackychris | 3 comments »

Holy crap, planing is hard work. Thank goodness for my trusty old Union #5, and this guy: I’m working on a hunk o’ flatsawn maple—nothing curly, just good ol’-fashioned cathedral grain—and it was giving me tear-out nightmares, thanks to a couple changes in grain direction. I was at a complete loss, and about to scrap my project until later, but I did a couple internet searche...

Starting up a workshop the second time around. #2: Workbench plan

06-16-2010 10:07 PM by David Kirtley | 3 comments »

While I am waiting for my vise to get actual measurements, I have been working on what I want for my bench this time. It is going to be a lot smaller than my last one. It is also going to be made from dimensional lumber and sheet goods. A solid hardwood bench is pretty but it is so impractical. It usurps a lot of expensive lumber and you have to spend so much time preparing stock. Straight out of the big box store for this one. I am going with only once vise. I have ordered a knock-off pat...

The octagonal table project is making some progress! I have now successfully routed the leg(not totally satisfied). I was encountering some problems during the pattern routing of the legs as I described in my last 2 blogs: and Some of you have seen the problems I was having and gave advise that were very valuable. Another valuable resource could be found here:

Building a Spray Booth for $160

02-10-2011 06:20 AM by Matt (Upper Cut) | 3 comments »

Hey Jocks! The first post in a series detailing a woodworker’s portable spray booth that I’ve built is here. The design is based Michael Dresdner’s post on Fine Woodworking. I thought I had some original ideas to improve on this, but then I saw Jeff Jewitt’s book Spray Finishing Made Simple. You can build this booth for about $160 with supplies from your local big box store and scraps laying around your shop. Head over to my blog and check it out! Matt GradwohlUpper Cut Woodworksh...

16' Gentlemans Runabout #1: Stations

03-01-2011 09:36 PM by ashgrove | 3 comments »

We are building from scratch a 16’ Hacker Gentlemans Runabout in our garage. The process started one year ago after visiting a local boat show. I first started with plywood templates for the stations and then cut them out of white oak.I built a 16’ long steam box out of sheet metal to bend the long pieces of oak to be installed.I next installed the keel, chines and clamps to tie the stations together.I used epoxy and silocon bronze screws to fasten everything together.This boat is...
