21 hours ago by mafe | 9 comments »

Jamies two face knifeperhaps the brother knife… Hi LJ’s, I have been offline for a while, had a wonderful summer, but ran out of energy at the end.As some of you know I have chronically pains and this combined with too much happening, kind of got me at the end (two sides).So I have been comfortably numb for a while (pale face)...Now I try to take little steps and let life run in the veins again and what is better than to share a little on LJ. As many of you know I visited my...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1385: Making Lemonade

22 hours ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Thoughout my life, I have practiced and somewhat mastered the art of finding good in most anything. Even when something bad occurs, I have myself trained to try to find a positive slant in it. Some people call this 'optimism' and I suppose that is as good a word as any to describe my attitude toward life. I think it is a good habit to follow, as looking for something positive in a even a not-so-good situation often changes our entire disposition and more often than not, we surprise ou...

HFDC Dust Collector Optimization #2: HFDC Dust Collector Optimization - Cutting the TOP HAT pieces

1 day ago by Morton WoodWorks | 1 comment »

After a couple days away from the shop I was able to get back at it after work yesterday. Crazy but I am the most productive at 4:30 AM when I get home from my 12hr shift. Today when I started I had no idea how far I would get, but everything went very quickly. First off, I went to my scrap pile and found a sheet of 3/4” plywood for the main components and cut it into 4 – 2’ x 2’ pieces. After that I created a jig so that I could cut the circles on my table s...

Furniture #8: Maloof Stool Raw finished

1 day ago by robscastle | 7 comments »

Here is the finished (as a blog) stool Once it came out of the clamps all the joints looked OK so it underwent 3 hours of sculpting and preliminary 80 Grit sanding. Followed by a good blast down with compressed air and an through examination of the joints was conducted. There are some gaps in the joints, knots and areas of the back rest needing filling so that will happen along with final series of finish sanding, a protective coat applied, and then posted as a project, so that ends ...

Side project #4: More Flags

1 day ago by BJODay | 0 comments »

Because I opted for a smaller version of the US flag, I had lots of ping pong balls left over. So I decided to make an Irish flag. Then My wife protested until I told her I’d make her a Swiss flag, (Her pop emigrated from Switzerland). Now I have to get them hung up before my granddaughter visits. BJ

New shop build.

1 day ago by WalnutRidge | 3 comments »

My family and I moved recently, and with the move I lost my shop. (Heartbreaking I know). But the sun is on the horizon. In about 45 days a new shop build will begin. So hopefully I can remember to take pics and updates along the way. I’m having the building put up as well as concrete. But from there I will be doing the wiring (with the supervision of a friend who is way smarter than me. ) insulation, and sheeting. Also plan on having some outlets in the floor for table saw, planer, and...
