Life as an Amateur Woodworker #10: Remove those loose cables from the floor.

11-25-2013 07:47 PM by PhilBello | 2 comments »

I’m not sure why it is, that those simple things that make life easier always seem to take a back seat, I am in the enviable position that because I only have my micro-workshop, I can spend my time making some of the things I would probably never get around to otherwise. One of the things that surprised me here in Colombia, is the apparent inability to be able to buy a reel cable, they only seem to sell extension cables ‘loose’, you can buy a reel separately (a small vers...

Michael Rea Exhibit in Virginia

03-19-2008 03:49 PM by Olaf Gradin | 2 comments »

Beginning in April, Michael Rea's fantastic visions of unreality will be on display at the Contemporary Art Center in Virginia. I bring this dose of culture to the Lumberjocks because of Mr. Rea’s preferred medium of temporal materials – unfinished wood, for instance. “Standing on the shoulders of other people’s dreams could perhaps be the most pathetic of all dreams. The intent of my work is to create something short of its outcome. My goal is to create the idea of...

A LumberJocks Journey (fictional) #3: The inspiration part 1

11-18-2008 06:53 AM by kolwdwrkr | 2 comments »

Well I took some time when I delivered ‘ol Roys memorial bench to the fishing hole. There’s very few words to describe the beauty of this place. Nestled high up in the rockies where few people travel. I made the bench in a manner that it could be dissassemble to pack it the 7 mile hike to the lake. When I say few people travel to this lake I mean only a few neighbors travel to this lake. Tourists are typically to lazy to travel on foot this distance, and us locals don’t...

Penultimate Contractor Saw tune up method #1: 1st steps

01-26-2009 03:45 AM by marcb | 2 comments »

Its time once again to do a big time tune up on the old Rockwell Model 10. Due to the number of threads on tuning up old saws that I’ve seen, plus the number of people who think its impossible to keep a contractor saw in alignment I figured I would share my method, which is built up of a couple of different articles and discussions I’ve read/had over the years. Unfortunately this first chuck I’ve already done and didn’t think to take pictures, but it is fairly e...

Printer Stand #2: So, uh, it's done now.

08-19-2009 03:55 AM by Greg Wurst | 2 comments »

Okay, I didn’t update this while I was building it as I planned. So, I’ll just describe what I went through on this build. I tried several new things on this build; such as resawing stock to size and edge-gluing panels. I got to use my new tools and discovered how often you can trip a breaker with a drum sander that draws 15 amps on a 15 amp circuit. I also reminded myself not to back-out of a stopped dado cut on the table saw. I still have the remnants of a large bruis...

Christmas projects

11-23-2010 06:58 PM by Doug Scott | 2 comments »

By now all of us woodworkers should have or already have started on that special Christmas for that special person or people on our list. Every year I think I’m going to get started back in about September or October, but it has never happened . Try being employed in this type of business and still have time to work on your own projects is like the car mechanic that has the worst running car, but works on everyone else’s.I have managed to build 6 child rockin chairs and two are f...
