With a lot of help from DaveR, I have started to learn a little bit about using sketchup. After finishing my fence layout in sketchup I decided to try my hand at designing a little rover robot. This was a much more challenging project than my previous one. It was a fun experience, and I plan to start getting more complex in my designs as I am slowly learning how to create my Army of digital minions! Har Har Har! This little one is a roving video bot. The two antennas on the back are for co...
I just stumbled across this website while looking at boxmaking. I’m making a couple of baseball display boxes for Christmas gifts. I joined immediately. I reviewed several of the projects and am truly impressed. I will add photos of some of my projects at a later date. I just wanted to say nice work!
So, I have basically just spent the entire fall season using my shop as a storage place for my living room while my wife and I renovated. We went to the bare walls, rewired, insulated, and everything else. And finally I am done! (Actually, I still have some crown molding to put up, but I feel done.) Now, I have finally gotten back into the shop to do a few minor projects including a Christmas gift (more to come on that later). I have to say, it is nice to be back down there. Although, I...
From my blog, Furnitude, here’s a post recommending three woodworking-related books.
Ok, I have been agonizing over this for a bit now…Shelf pins or just use a standard….I dont have the equipment to ensure good accuracy(drill press or skill hehe) so I was thinking I would just break down and route a dado and put in shelf standards…not as classy, but workable…what do you all think?
Okay this maybe odd but, I have tried to get into a few different shops. I worked in one for a little while and I loved it but, I was working on commission and was having problems getting payed by the owner. My question is about my resume. I have always been very creative and know that I can do what ever a job would require. I also know the economy is in a hole right now. But I am going to post my resume and I would love some feed back. Please be very critical. I am an artist and have ...
121 woodworkers have donated to this website out of over 6,500 woodworkers who use it. I won’t say it.As a donor, I know that while my contribution wasn’t large…at least I contributed something. My return to viewing Lumberjocks started about a week ago when I came back to this website after a hiatus from my shop, etc…family needs and such. Again, I was inspried to do something more in my shop from what I saw here. I’m “one-man-power” and not perf...
Well, I recently built myself a new shop. I moved from an 8×8 to a 12×16 I know this isn’t much to most of you but it is huge for me. Now I have my tool out on display and I’m not working off the floor. I have always felt that I have the ability to create beautiful pieces of furniture and the Ideas have always been there. I mean, I have a sculpture degree, I received numerous awards for my work at the University of Montevallo. I don’t ever want to sound full ...
I am finding that I LOVE looking at my projects on lumberjocks. Its terribly vain I know. Like staring at yourself in the mirror and being in love with yourself. Its like when I finish something part of the finishing process and shamefully a large part of the excitement it seems is snapping off some pics and putting it on lumberjocks. Then when I am making one of my daily checks to see whats new and impressive on lumberjocks I will often look at one of me own projects. I know what my st...
This is a work in progress. Not from me but my youngest daughter. Every once in a while one of my two daughters will come to work with me. They have their own work shirt and tool belt. I asked my youngest daughter what she was building and she told me a trampoline. I assume this is because I have asked for one for the last several years and my wife will not let Santa bring one. I think I like this one better anyway. What is the elasticity of oak? I’ll keep you posted on th...
