I dropped the ball!

04-18-2013 10:27 PM by Derec | 2 comments »

I dropped the ball on the marking tool swap and I am sorry! I had some family issues come up and I lost track of time and forgot about it. I have sent an apology to Andrew Clayton and told him his marking tool will be in the mail if not sooner. Again, I am sorry. I will do better in the future if I am allowed to play. Derec

Derek's Shop #1: Getting started and looking ahead.

08-20-2008 06:44 PM by Derek Lyons | 2 comments »

I haven’t posted a workshop tour yet not because I am new to LJ, but because I don’t really have much of a shop at present… We have a detached two car garage with an ‘amazing’ (and mostly useless) collection of jerry built ‘shelving’ and ‘workbenches’ courtesy of the previous owner of the house. Over the next week and a half that will change radically with the old crap being ripped out and getting started on the new… So lets tak...

Rescued Wood #11: Internal Stresses in Wood

01-18-2010 11:28 PM by PG_Zac | 2 comments »

We all (should) know that wood naturally has some internal stresses that on occasion cause the wood to warp in various ways. These stresses NORMALLY tend to surface during moisture changes or sometimes during removal of sections of a board or plank. Well yesterday wood stress nearly made me cr@p myself. So there I was, happily slabbing away at some beautiful Eucalyptus (see previous 2 posts). Relief was coursing through me as I neared the end of a cut knowing I could take a few minute...

Extremely Average #224: Not What I wanted to Write...

08-16-2010 05:15 AM by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

Hello All, After last night’s post, and then the subsequent drinking in Lisbon, I really wanted to tell the ‘rest of the story’, but alas I am suffering a bit today. So I decided it was best to get back to woodworking, which is what most people like best anyway. I have started my router table spline jig and am sending out a call for naming two more of my tools. There is a picture of the tools who need names, so if anyone would like to help, feel free to chime in. T...

Saw Till #1: Designing the Till

06-29-2011 09:52 PM by brianl | 2 comments »

As my hand-tool usage has grown, I have gradually expanded my collection of saws. I started with three (rip, crosscut, and back) and over time I’ve added other restored specialty saws until I have no place to put them all. At that point I realized I had to build a saw till. My workshop is in a shared basement of a multi-apartment building. While normally the other residents of my building are quite nice and respectfully don’t mess with my stuff (I don’t mess with their...

More Pecan Wood To Slab up

10-10-2011 09:17 PM by cdbridge39 | 2 comments »

We Have a lot of storm damaged pecan trees here in the south. All you have to do is ask and its yours. Well you still got to cut it and load it but its free. Two trailer loads is about all my back can stand at one time. I have a small chainsaw mill that fits on my bar and I slab out chunks of wood. It’s also called a beam maker but you can cut any size slab you want to. All you have to do is move the board that the mill runs on over and screw it down. You also have to sharpen your chain...

Breadbox Class #5: Gluing up the sides

11-11-2011 11:14 PM by GaryK | 2 comments »

Now for something simple. Gluing up the long sides. You will need to make a 5 1/2” wide piece out of scrap wood. Maybe a couple of smaller ones. They are used as spacers for the glue up and that’s all. This assures that the opening stays at the proper distance while the glue dries. Since these are long grain to long grain, nothing other that glue is required The first thing I do is apply glue to both long edges of the (5 1/2”) back and clamp it up with the top and b...

Workshop Makeover #1: Current Layout

03-19-2012 05:47 PM by pound | 2 comments »

I finally got the workshop unearthed, and like any good child of the 80’s it is time to crowdsource my decision making. I am sure you are still laughing if you are looking at the pictures of the chaos, but my fiancé has been using the garage to store stuff and the tablesaw looks like a fine table top from the female perspective. I have pretty much sorted the remaining to be thrown away and attic storage materials. I am trying to be exclusively a woodworking shop with some stora...
