How can I buy a New Cabinet Saw for only $20? #11: Just an Update...

03-05-2012 02:18 AM by Chickenfoot | 3 comments »

The one thing that I forgot in the last Blog posting was the money… I was at $800, I spent $350 on the R/C equipment and on friday I bought a Jet 89” Belt Sander & a Dewalt 13” planer for $350. after all of that spending I’m sitting at $100 in the pot. I sold the R/C equipment for $640 after all the fees and the Dewalt planer for $350. So that makes $1090 in the pot but I still have a nice Jet Sander and about 24 planes left. I’m taking all my planes, saws an...

dust stuff #1: Facebook

03-28-2012 01:35 PM by JoeyG | 3 comments »

I know a lot of people are on facebook, I have been on there since before a lot of people I know had even heard of it. There are things I really like about it and things I don’t. Just like here on lumberjocks. While lumberjocks is a place to share finished projects and how to blogs, and tool reviews; Facebook is a more moment to moment type of environment. I post my finished projects and some blogs about how I do things, but it struck me that some of you may like to know a little...

Thought I would let all the lumber Jocks know that there is A George Nakashima exhibit at the Wing Luke Museum in Seattle WA. It’s a great show with lots to look at the only bad part is you cant take pictures.

Trying new woodworking skills #3: Tested the planer

09-01-2013 01:31 AM by BJODay | 3 comments »

The planer is all set up. I ran some 1×4 pine through it. Worked very well. Nice and smooth. Some snipe on a few boards. I will adjust the outfeed table tomorrow. I am too tired to do it tonight. My dust collection system is under powered. It works but chips collect in any low spots and corners. The 735 has a blower to help eject chips. I hooked it up to my dust collector. It pressurized my piping system and blew chips out of my jointer, router and miter saw. My dust collection system...

As some or most of you may know, my back has been injured/screwed up since, oh…late July. It didn’t really put a damper on my workshop activities till the beginning of September when I finally succumbed to the pain and sought the help of the local chiropractor. Well, after some x-rays and some scary medical jargon (I miss the good ol’ days when it was simply called a “bad back” instead of something that sounds like a terminal disease!) I was basically put on be...

Outdoor living/ the backyard and beyond #1: The backyard deck

12-29-2013 07:36 PM by JustChet | 3 comments »

I bought my current home back in 1999, and I longed to spend a relaxing afternoon “out back”, staring at the city lights and pondering the meaning of life while drinking a frosty beverage. The best place to do that? Why, on a backyard deck! There was a rather large Sugar Maple tree in the yard, but it was in very poor health, and needed removal. Following it’s cut down, and cleanup, along came my dog, and my now ex-wife wanted the cheapest possible fence. Green vinyl an...
