Ok—as I learned on the garbage can holder, I think I need a bit more planning on my next project. I’ve in the past at least drawn out some sketches and worked from that . . . which is what I did to a certain degree on the trash holder but I didn’t flesh out all the details until I was in (over my head) on the project. Norm Abram I’m not. So on to the next thing which will be some overhead cabinets for in the garage. I’ve always wanted something above the wo...
Karson thanks for the tip i,m plan to attend the wooworking show this weekend in NJ i,ll keep to the speed limit rather spent money on tools than tickets alken
I finally ran the numbers. My shop is a 1-car rental garage in cramped, suburban LA. Making things extra strange is that there is a 6’ tall cinder block wall running down one side of the property that terminates right at the corner of my garage. It actually buts into it, overlapping the wall by the width of the cinder blocks. The fence around the back of the property passes about 4’ behind the garage, giving me a little tree-covered (Hollywood Junipers and Ficus benjamina) area I ...
Yeah… it’s party time. Today is LumberJocks Birthday!Our site is 3 years old, or should I say 3 years young? Who remembers those first months? I prepared a small gift for all of you. Internals of the pictures management – that you can see when adding new project, review or workshop – are revamped. I will use this updated system for the planned attachments feature. In addition to this I raised the number of pictures per project from four to six. I was think...
Believe or not, the Japanese old style Ryokan (Inn) has a internet service here in Kyushu! Don’t have much time to use it, because it’s public PC, but here is what I have seen today. Here is a coffee house next to A hot spring/inn and you can see the old structure oh the beams. Oh it was beautiful. And thsi is where we had lunch (soba noodle) And this is where I am staying (Ryokan “inn”) Always see these houses with big surprises and respects.
In honor of Lumberjocks 3rd birthday, and my 1st anniversary of turning, I am giving away this hollow form vase. I turned my first bowl March 4, 2008. I have posted most of my turnings over the last year. Lumberjocks has been a great resource and inspiration to me. The kind words (even when I did not deserve them) and the insightful critiques (I deserve more critique) has allowed me to grow as an artist, a woodworker, and a person. For that I say “Thank You!” I have always named all my ...
One of the excuses I used to get started with woodworking (and spend money on tools of course) was that I wanted to build 5 footstools for our beauty salon. Our customers currently rest their feet on some rather horrible pink plastic footstools that cost 49 baht or less from the local supermarket. They look a bit out of place and the top is hard to keep clean. I can do better than that I thought! This blog will detail my adventures in trying to build these footstools. These are my first real ...
I believe this will be the last of the trees I post in this ongoing series that I’ve already identified. I think it’ll be more fun for me and anyone else following along to go on the hunt for a tree’s name and species along with me than for me to simply post an encyclopedic entry of each tree. I didn’t take proper pics of the 2 or 3 others I’ve identified either, so they’re not worth posting yet anyway. I do intend to follow up identifications with more abo...
Does anyone else – when working with black walnut – think it smells delicious? I just want to eat it whenever I’m cutting it. I was recently cutting out a ball blank from a glue-up of walnut, maple, and wenge, the latter two of which don’t really have a smell when cut. But the walnut! My dull band saw blade was more burning than cutting, and I was just about drooling all over the table. It smelled like warm cinnamon chocolate bread pudding. I almost ran to the bakery i...
Hi Everyone, Over the weekend, I made two videos on how to do the wiring for my Motorized Router Lift. If you were thinking of making one for yourself, this video series should help you along a bit. The electronics are pretty simple, so don’t be intimidated. I also show how to make a cool looking and functional control panel for the Motorized Router Lift:
