Ready To Support LJ.com By Donating? ;)

10-16-2007 09:35 PM by Martin Sojka | 96 comments »

Based on your suggestions, I’ve finally added Donations page! So now you can support LumberJocks financially by donating money through PayPal (note that PayPal also accepts all the major credit cards). Donated money will be used to cover the growing hosting fees, to buy banners and spread the word about our website and to make our unqiue Awards and Challenges even better… maybe I will also buy one-two beers if possible ;) You can choose between donating once or making a recurri...

I Finally Did It, Cut Off The End Of A Finger

12-22-2009 03:46 PM by jockmike2 | 96 comments »

Yes I was careless and in a hurry and had been up since 2:30am and had just taken the guard off two days ago to rip some 3” stock and failed to put it back on the tablesaw.. I was pushing through a piece of Purpleheart and reached over the piece to pull it on through and it pulled my right hand into the blade. I lost the end of my right ring finger, and it took a good bite out of my middle finger. It”s about 8:30am and my wife is trying to get hold of a hand surgeon because It als...

The top-secret project..... #5: The Assembly Line

01-23-2012 06:21 AM by MSlumberjocks | 95 comments »

To keep things seperated nicely, this post will start into the assembly process. I (William) have started assembly of certain sub-assemblies. The assembly of the entire thing cannot begin in earnest until KTMM gets back to Vicksburg to do some of his magic on the frame. Some of the sub-assemblies though that are already to a finished state, I’m taking the liberty of going ahead with some of them.So,I ended my last post with the for trunnion assemblies already partially done.To assemble ...

Tool Chest Refurb #7: Chest needs a lid, and now it has one...

09-03-2012 03:50 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 95 comments »

Not going to clench cut nails for hinge install because my cut nails are truly vintage and will break rather than bend. Because of the thickness of the lid skirt, two shorter screws are needed at the base of the three-hole hinge, with one long wood screw good for the top in that it goes through the skirt and into the panel of the lid. Chose the hardware from the parts drawer, and moved out. Clamped the hinge tight, tapped starter holes and drove the screws home. The next pic...

Wonderful - Man sues Ryobi and HD because he cut himself on the saw

03-09-2010 02:59 PM by David Craig | 94 comments »

Not sure who all heard the news for today, but a lawsuit was won against Ryobi for not incorporating blade stop technology on their saw. This guy apparently fed his hand through the tablesaw and Ryobi is to blame for not protecting him. I hope this gets overturned. I believe blade stop is a good thing to have available but there is a reason why I do not have a SawStop which has to do with cost. If this goes through, there are going to be a ton of lawsuits filed against many saw manufacturer w...

Who The Heck Is Cricket?

03-26-2014 06:56 PM by Cricket | 91 comments »

Over the last few months I have had several members ask me if I would introduce myself to the community and why I had not done so from the start. Let me start by saying I am not a woodworker. I wish I was because I am blown away by all your incredible projects. I especially love the more rustic stuff and anything related to the outdoors. As a Community Manager for VerticalScope, I tend to try to stay in the background most of the time and simply address site issues that need attention to h...

Grumbles from the shop #12: Politics Religion and Woodworking

05-12-2010 09:06 AM by dennis mitchell | 91 comments »

We use to talk about God and Politics here at LumberJocks. We had no need for a rule excluding it. From my point of view woodworking is a spiritual experience. The very nature of it. The heart of a tree. The finest examples of the art of woodworking are found in religious buildings around the world. I don’t see how we can really talk about woodworking and not talk about the deep meaning it has in so many peoples lives. I guess politics and woodworking has such a special meaning to me...

This will not be like the usual tutorial which is a single or multi-part explanation of how to do something… this will be a series of lessons posted every three or four days so that anyone wh...

Well four of the members of this site got together on a Saturday afternoon. BoxcarMarty, Eddie, William and Superdave721 meet up at Williams Shop. We had a wonderful time.

Eddie came over from Louisiana and I from middle Mississippi. We met at Williams shop and the fun began.This site is ...
