The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #56: Make your ambient air cleaner (Jet, Delta, etc.) a lot better!

07-03-2015 04:59 PM by StumpyNubs | 0 comments »

If you own, plan to buy, or even make an overhead ambient air cleaner, you have to see this… I’m tired of buying expensive replacement filters, so I mounted a Wynn cartridge to my Jet air cleaner! It made the system WAY more efficient (lots more airflow), improved my air quality (the Wynn filter is MERV15), and I’ll never have to change it (the filter is infinitely cleanable). I made this video as part of our NEW DUST COLLECTION SECTION of our website to show you how to do i...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #55: What makes a good cyclone? (Let's make one from wood...)

07-03-2015 04:53 PM by StumpyNubs | 0 comments »

A long, long time ago we produced four episodes (90 minutes in total) full of useful information about Bill Pentz’ research and what is required for good fine dust collection. And we built a fill size cyclone with TWO blowers out of wood! This is a condensed version (15 minutes) of those original videos, containing just the best info and the project build- minus the fluff. It’s a great resource for anyone interested in improving the air in their shops! PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO OU...

Suede Tex Blow on Flocking

07-03-2015 02:27 PM by cajunpen | 1 comment »

I was wondering if any of you Lumberjocks used the Suede Tex Blow on Flocking. I’ve used it in the past and had great results. My problem now is that I have a couple of different “Flock” colors, but the paint on adhesive that matches the colors has dried up. I’m wondering if I couldn’t take the flocking material into Home Depot and get them to match the color with a Latex paint and use that for my undercoat adhesive? Anybody done this successfully? The st...

GRIZZMAN HAD A HEART ATTACK

07-03-2015 12:22 PM by NBeener | 9 comments »

I’m sorry. I couldn’t get this to post in the Coffee Lounge. He’s a pretty private guy, so I’m out on a bit of a limb, but … I knew you’d all want to know. His wife, Susan, posted this on Facebook: “Prayers needed for my sweetie. He had a heart attack last night, but is ok now. He had to have a stent on the right side of his heart. He’s comfortable now and in the hospital until tomorrow at least.” Let’s all keep Grizz i...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1584: Scrolling Binge

07-03-2015 06:32 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

One good thing about doing lots of types of creative crafts is that every time I get to do something else, it is new and fresh to me and I am excited about it. I love painting and I love the recent needle artwork that I have been attempting, but I also love creating cool wood things on the scroll saw. There is something that is so calming and peaceful about following a line with a tiny blade to create 'graceful wood'. It is sometimes difficult to keep up with everything that is g...

Slow starter

07-02-2015 11:14 PM by Carli | 5 comments »

I have yet only made 2 things from wood – self taught just to see if I could. They aren’t pretty or perfect but considering they were firsts for me, I feel I didn’t do too badly. The first was a puzzle frame. My miter saw was not squared up so the joints are off some. Routering out the back so the puzzle is recessed was interesting too (with router attachment for my Dremel)

Maple/oak project/desk #5: Clamps, I need CLAMPS

07-02-2015 09:19 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Time to do some glue ups. Took the clamps off of the dry fit. Plan was to start as small as I could, and work my way out from there. Last night, just two clamps, and some Elmers. Center divider got clamped into the front board. Let it sit overnight. Next morning, got a few items done. A router tabel set up to make pencil grooves, start and stop marks and locator marks for the round nosed coce bit. Had those same marks on the oak 2×2…..well they helped at first. One...

Woodspotting Update - July

07-02-2015 11:39 AM by siavosh | 2 comments »

It’s been a few months, but wanted to post on the regular traffic levels of the blog aggregator I wrote for fun about a year ago. Woodspotting.com, for most who don’t know, helps me by automatically listing new blog entries for my favorite blogs. My favorite woodworking blogs being those that focus on Western and Japanese hand tools woodworking. The site traffic continues to grow, although there was a dip prior to June, but last month for some reason there was a big spike..so a...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1583: Now for Something Completely Different

07-02-2015 07:47 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Yesterday was a busy day. I like that. I felt as if I was getting back on track and really accomplishing something. I didn't get to do the final photos of the new five candle tray patterns, but I did work on the three additional ornament sets that I will also be including in the next site update. (We are thinking either Sunday or Monday we will send out a newsletter.)  That will mean that I will have a total of eight new scroll saw patterns to post. It will feel really good for me to...
