The Northern California Woodworking show starts in less than 72 hours (three days), at the Sacramento Convention Center, downtown Sacramento. And the Lumberjocks will have a booth, compliments of the Woodworking Shows, Inc. A number of area LumberJocks have agreed to set in the booth for an hour or two on each of the three days. To all of those who have replied and said they will be in the booth, I have sent tickets. The tickets went out via snail-mail yesterday. I am looking forward t...

Nightstand Sketchup

11-11-2009 03:06 AM by Eric_S | 3 comments »

I finally got around to finishing the Sketchup drawing for my first fine woodworking project that I hope to start before the holidays. I had difficulty designing the sides and back and I’m still not sure if I like the grooved panels. I may go back to just a basic panel or raised. The shelf above the bottom drawer was also a pain, but that could just be because I was a newbie to Sketchup. Please let me know if there is a better, or easier way to build a shelf that sits like that. ...

Travels, Photos and Discoveries #2: Boeing Museum of Flight in Seattle

11-11-2009 01:28 AM by David | 0 comments »

A trip to the Boeing Museum of Flight After seeing the movie about Amelia Earhart and a book report project for our granddaughter we had a perfect opportunity to visit the Boeing Museum of Flight in Seattle. If you are not from the area and should ever happen to visit, I highly recommend it weather you are a history buff, airplane nut or a woodworking jock, looking to see some extraordinary displays. Their web site is here and is equally as good as the museum. They do an outstanding job of...

Tablesaw Workstation #10: Back at it

11-11-2009 12:09 AM by JohninSD | 0 comments »

The house is now termite free (I hope), after the exterminating company put up a giant tent over it and flooded it with poison gas. Since I had to vacate the house during the 3 days or so this took, it seemed like a good time to use my camper, which had gone unused since January. A two month bicycle trip and various other activities had taken precedence. Of course, it couldn’t be simple. For one thing, my truck needed new tires before I felt comfortable loading the camper on it. Anyway...

Buffalo Box #1: Milling the stock

11-10-2009 06:31 PM by wdkits1 | 8 comments »

I will begin this WIP series with a little history. I have been creating Intarsia since 1992 after reading an article in Wood magazine by Judy Gayle Roberts about how to do this beautiful woodworking artform. After doing a couple of her patterns, I started creating my own Intarsia patterns and began collecting many different woods to use in my art. Learning about the wide selection of natural colors and grains of the various woods and being able to incorporate them into my pieces is still the...

Share Your Hand Tool Skills Challenge

11-10-2009 12:52 PM by stefang | 17 comments »

Hi everyone. I think there must be a whole lot of you out there who have developed woodworking hand skills over time. Some of you may have only one or maybe just a few hand skills that you do really well and others might be well versed on the full range. My thought is that it would be fun and informative to have more blogs showing handskills.I certainly don’t have much knowledge in this area, but I did do a blog on hand chopping mortises showing a method that works well for me. I gue...
