Some people have expressed interest on how much items go for and how to price your projects. I don’t know much about this, but I hooked up with my local farmer’s market and set up some of my projects for sale. It was rather chilly for a summer day here, and not many people turned out, but in 4 hours I did manage to sell two things. Also I had a lot of people picking up my work and feeling them, opening them, and lots of great comments on workmanship wood choices etc. I learned a l...
Since this was a three day weekend for me, I got to go hiking twice: 4 1/2 hours in Putnam County Park on Friday and almost 4 this morning in Trace Fork Canyon. Nestled between the twin cities of Charleston and South Charleston, Trace Fork Canyon is an urban oasis of hundreds of acres. Even when you’re enjoying the solitude deep in the bottom of the canyon, the roads winding along the canyon rim are only 1/2 mile or so away – if you could climb the steep terrain, that is. It’...
Hey Guys and Gals Just wanted to wish everyone a happy and safe independence day. We are in beatiful Houghtn Lake, Michigan a the Bear Claw cafe in Arnie’s Craft Store. We are having a coffee and sweet roll break then on to FISHING. I took the wife to houghton lake airport and got her in a plane for the first time. She had a wonderful time. The damn plane was older than I was. It was a 1966 cessna. I will be back in the shop on Sunday and will be refreshed.
After making the pistola I decided that perhaps he needed a rifle. Who knows maybe I’m starting his own gun collection for him ;^) I saw a picture online of a wooden shotgun, printed it up for referance, and then made my own version. I decided to search for real shotguns as well, so that It can be more authentic. I’m not sure if I was successfull with the authenticity part, but it sure is better then the wooden one online. LOL. Of course those projects are made for speed, my p...
I’m in the market for a new table saw so like every other well informed consumer I’m reading everything that I can get my fat little fingers on. One great source of product information is product reviews from magazines and online sources. I particularly like the side-by-side reviews but I’m a little skeptical of the results. When the newest edition of my favorite woodworking magazine shows up with a product review in it, it’s the first place I go. I love them and ...
Well I ordered my new 15 inch thickness planer on Monday morning after a couple of weeks of reading reviews and pricing and settled on the G0453. That’s the one with the 3 regular knife’s. it was offered with free shipping and I also ordered the Byrd shelix head from another company that would match Grizzly’s price and offer free shipping. On Wednesday morning Grizzly added to their free shipping the 15 inch planer with the spiral cutter. I would have ordered that if it were availab...
One of the main projects which I’ve done for literally everyone in my house, is to build their beds. They’re not fancy, but they hold up the mattresses and I guess that makes them successful. Recently my wife upgraded one of my son’s mattress from a twin to a full size, going from a loft style (no box spring) to one with a Box spring in the process. This mean that his Old bed frame which was half of a bunk which he and his older brother split into two mini lofts is now ou...
I am a fan of LumberJocks. Particularly in it’s current form, because it has pretty much been this way since I joined. That was a little more than 9,000 members ago and not quite two years. It may be me, but lately it seems that there have been a number of posts saying that people should be stopped. People should be stopped from posting so many projects. People should be stopped from making so many comments. People should be stopped from greetings newcomers. People should be st...
So I’m building Norms Router Station… Almost don’t just need to complete the top and the dust collection on the back side.
Today I learned: —It’s really hard to blow sawdust out of the way when you’re wearing a respirator. —Yes, Virginia, I can resaw with my tablesaw —When you buy fancy wood, it’s important to remember what it’s called, or else all the other Lumberjocks will make fun of you when don’t know what it is! —Thiel
