Hello everyone. I am sure I have mot been missed but I have been having some technical difficulty. I was attempting to reconfigure an external harddrive a while back and crashed my computer.

Train Bed #7: Completed

04-23-2009 03:36 PM by Chris Davis | 3 comments »

The train is back from graphics and completed. Well almost. I am thinking about putting a bell on the front and I need to add the child’s name under the window. Other than that it is finished. After I got it back from graphics, I just reassembled it cut slats and wired the lights. I put a small knob on the headboard to activate a touch sensor. I mounted the control box under the slat cleats, hidden and out of the way. The wire runs under the cleats to the front where it plugs in to ...

General thoughts on life and woodworking #3: The contest and an important safety lesson

05-11-2010 07:47 PM by Jack_T | 3 comments »

Well I made the May 7, 2010 deadline for the Gorilla Glue Contest, just barely. I submitted it at 11:58 p.m. I am quite pleased with myself. Not because I think the project is the greatest project ever made; but rather it was I my first woodworking project that I set a deadline to and met the deadline. Normally the woodworking that I do is in my spare time and gets done when it gets done. No deadline at all. this was fun! I also learned a very important safety tip because of this pro...

The Basement #1: Intro

10-18-2010 05:06 AM by JL7 | 3 comments »

Greetings Lumberjocks, Two years ago I finally got a space for my own. The basement of MY own house! Later I will explain how the shop has grown, but for now, I will just say, how great it is to have a space to express my creative side. Financial limitations (child support – love and support my kids always – but VERY expensive) have plagued me for years (and still do) but I have managed to aquire a decent collection of tools of a budget. I appreciate all the expertice fou...

Signs of spring...

Signs of spring… Hauling iced teas and coke out to the workshop refrigerator. Putting away the boxes of Christmas decorations you’ve been moving out of the way since January. Wondering where in hell you put your measuring tape and gloves this time. And Wondering how the hell the shop got this messy since you swore you cleaned it last fall and didn’t actually spend all that much time in it over the winter. (Yes, spring is horribly late this y...

rockwell 6" jointer clean up: cutter head assembly

02-03-2013 11:33 PM by Holbs | 3 comments »

in anticipation of getting ready to dimension wood this month… i decided to give my jointer more physical tuneup. first, i removed the cutter head assembly. i then had to grind down a 5/16” HF box wrench so it would fit into the lock bar slot. i removed the lock bar, blade, 4 hex screws and cleaned everything i saw: the “valley” where the blade/lock bar sit in, front/back/sides of the hex screws, and the lock bar itself as i do not think this jointer ever had a te...
