"I'm Back"!

10-07-2010 12:35 AM by gene | 10 comments »

Fellow LJ’ers, “I’m “Back”!!!After I promised my wife a project for her Christmas present about 5 or 6 years ago, and then my health took a nose dive, we finally got started working on it this past weekend. It consists of a bank of chest of drawers for the laundry room. I am using Baltic birch and popular for the face frames. (“Man”, the prices have gone up since my last purchase) Everything is going to be painted with latex semi gloss white. The tops will be laminated. She is doing al...

Anyone up for a Lumberjock Gettogether in Mid-Michigan

10-06-2010 11:10 PM by jockmike2 | 23 comments »

I talked to Billy J. the other day, David Craig and Rustic Rick, they all liked the idea but Rick didn’t want to have anything to do with the planning, and I don’t blame him. He’s had a hand, along with me in two of the last 3 get togethers we had. He said something about a gettogether at a woodworking show, but I’m talking about a meal together with friends, maybe sharing some wood with each other or something. The last one was great, but it was too long ago. I would ...

Jet 6" JJ6 Jointer #3: hunt for the knife set screws

10-06-2010 10:06 PM by Camper | 5 comments »

well I was finally able to find a screw with matching thread in one of the box stores but this time the head size is the problem. Its about 1/8” bigger than the original screws. Here are some pictures showing it on the gib. they are just too big and protruding from the edge of the gib which will likely interfere with the cutting. It seems like just grinding the length down does not seem to be an option :(. At least we now know what will probably not work… here is a shot of both...

The great Lumberjocks shoe challenge #10: ....and toe

10-06-2010 06:49 PM by Jordan | 15 comments »

The toe blog starts today step by step. I will be working on refining the videoing too. While the top of your shoe is still flat, I’d like you to isolate your laces area so you don’t carve into it while shaping the toe/instep/body. 1.Position or reposition a nice bow where you’d like it to be – remember, you’re going to be carving this so the less complicated, the better. 2. Measure your shoe from the finished heel section to just above the first eyelets...

Not exactly woodworking, but close enough. #6: Less stress, lots done...

10-06-2010 04:26 PM by dbhost | 1 comment »

Well, part of my shop cleanup that I had scheduled was to install the foam board insulation on the second overhead door. I can proudly say that is a DONE deal as of last night, and as much of a difference as the first one made, this second door was even more noticeable. And no I am not talking temperatures here, at least not yet. I am talking NOISE. With the doors rolled down, I did NOT notice LOML pull up into the driveway. Hopefully the noise reduction SHOULD be bi-directional, meanin...

Designing for chandeliers

10-06-2010 03:54 PM by Don Butler | 13 comments »

SWBMT (otherwise known as She Who Buys Me Tools), just a couple of days ago, said she would like to have hanging ceiling lamps where we now have a lamp on a table and a floor lamp.Sounds reasonable. Let’s go buy them.Well when we got to the store she saw the leaded glass shades on some of the lamps and that swayed her.That’s OK, I like them too.Then we got one for the kitchen, too, to hang over the table.Oh, yeah.Now I’m thinking about the installation and decided to design ...

A Special Unicorn Project #6: Time To Start Ironing Out The Details

10-06-2010 01:55 PM by William | 3 comments »

Well, as usual, my wife is always right. I told her with my doctor’s appointments and all for Monday and Tuesday, that I wasn’t even going to try going to the shop. I was just going to take it easy. She told me as she was walking out the door Monday to go pick the kids up from school that I’d be over there doing something. She was right. I just couldn’t stand it. I was painting before she got back home. What you see above is the first coat of paint on the unicorn and t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #125: My Own Self-Challenge

10-06-2010 01:04 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I am really excited again. Already I know that it is going to be a great day. I got up early again (well – maybe I should say earlier) because I can’t wait to get things rolling today. It is a good reason and a wonderful way to start the day. I have already read through all of my mail and it is still pitch dark out, but that is OK. By the time I am done here and showered and done my morning clean up it will be late enough to get going. Besides, we are having the roof redone a...
