After I returned from my vacation there was a nice surprise delivered at my home. Again it was clear how enjoyable it is to be a member of LJ. LJ makes the world a little smaller. In the past I have had a lot of support from members and some helped me with (building) problems. Sometimes there were willing to send drawings from the USA to me. Great fellows. This time I got a nice hammer from Paul (AKA Kiefer). A hammer made by himself from hickory, walnut and leather. And I’m verry ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1752: Little Boxes

07-29-2016 12:30 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Yesterday I was away on an 'adventure'.  For most people, it wouldn't be what they considered 'exciting' but for me it was a nice day. Keith's mom had her knee reconstructed this past April. Everything went well and she is doing better than ever on it. However, she still has one more procedure to have done on her other knee. That will be done in the upcoming months. Yesterday was a 'girl's day' in which we traveled up the valley to New Minas,...

Makeup case #1: Building a case to hold wife/daughter's make up

07-29-2016 04:49 AM by slydog | 1 comment »

I never really thought about building something to hold my wife’s makeup “stuff” until I saw her digging through cases and drawers to get to the implements and concoctions. I had some scraps and so created a basic box structure to hold (what I thought) were those items. As we know the first rendition of a new idea isn’t the greatest, so I’ll just skip over that part and move on to what the current project is – the next version. The basic idea I found ...

Horsing Around (A Sawhorse Project) #1: A moment of ingenuity followed by stupidity

07-29-2016 04:21 AM by YusukeKomiya | 2 comments »

I wanted to chisel out a tenon since I didn’t have any good saws for ripcuts (though I do have one for crosscuts). After I made a crosscut for the shoulders I was trying to figure out how to proceed without a vise (on another note if anyone has recommendations for a good vise under $100 I’m all ears). Here’s my makeshift leg vise (or post vise maybe?). Everything looking good so far. So I insert the 1st leg (from previous photo) and everything fits. Now on to the ...

Big Rig by T& J #3: dressing up the inside

07-29-2016 04:04 AM by svfdfireman | 5 comments »

I stayed out of the shop the last few days. Got back this afternoon. Looking at the plans for the Rig, I realized that the interior was going to be totally empty. searching in the scrap pile, I found some wood and created a few things. They are all in need of sanding. But the idea and size seen to work Gas, break, and clutch peddle are red ceder. The seats are walnut with ceder, the gear shift is maple, turned on a drill press, and cut with a sharp screwdriver. The housing is ceder. The das...

New Shop! #11: Finished (Years Later)

07-29-2016 02:24 AM by Ryan Haasen | 4 comments »

Let me first apologize to those of you who were following my shop build back in 2012 – I forgot to post the finished product! I suppose my incomplete blog is the result of a combination of excitement with my new shop and just being busy with woodworking, school, and life in general. I know that if I was following a build and they failed to post the complete shop, I’d be a little ticked off! Now that I’ve got that out of the way, let’s move on to the shop. I will beg...

My First Stanley Hand Plane (#3 Type 13)

07-29-2016 01:41 AM by YusukeKomiya | 1 comment »

I paid about $60 for this beauty on Ebay. I was looking around for some cheapo rusty plane but when I saw this one I knew I wanted it. The knob and tote are in great condition. There is little rust and pitting. Most of the japanning is still intact. I still plan to clean it up to make it more pretty. I can’t wait to finally have square stock (which has been the bane of my past woodworking experience growing up before I knew better XP). I was about to buy a planing machine until my broth...

Workshop Build #1: Introduction

07-29-2016 01:39 AM by prad | 1 comment »

Here I’ll layout the undertaking of turning our old stable shed into a 20ftx20ft open shop. I ain’t got no camera so for now it’ll be pictureless, my wife may be so kind as to provide pictures with that smart phone of hers. We purchased a 1/3 acre property in a small town in Minnesota, it came with a house from 1900 and shed which we found was an old stable from before the house stood. It was and is still currently sided with stamped galvanized panels which I hope to re...

Moving to Texas #1: The beginning

07-28-2016 10:38 PM by jburklow | 0 comments »

Hello, My wife and I are getting ready to move down to Texas and it is a very daunting task every time I look at my shop. It is going to be a huge undertaking to get all the machines prepared for moving. While we will have movers I will still have to break down the machines the some degree so they can be transported. I am wondering if there are folks out there who are or have been in a similar situation and if they have any advice. One of the biggest issues I will have is that since there are...
