My SawStop Router Cabinet finally painted.

03-13-2010 06:04 AM by tedth66 | 6 comments »

I’m for the most part done with this project. For those of you that asked about the router table track I’m putting that off until I invest in a Woodpecker Router Lift which might require me to modify my table for a larger plate. I have updated photos on my project link. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/27579

Unique Chessboard #1: A Unique Chessboard

03-13-2010 06:01 AM by ghazard | 8 comments »

I say unique because I haven’t seen any like this before, though I doubt I’m the first to try it. The idea is for a big and bold board with kind of a 3D look, though not a traditional 3D chessboard where the blocks rise and fall. Here is the rendering I did as I was mulling it over. And the roughed out base with squares. Paduk base with Maple and Cherry squares. I had a cherry board that was really pretty and I knew I wanted to use that. Then I found a lightly qui...

Lacewood Lock #3: Shackle and Parts

03-13-2010 05:30 AM by deeman | 3 comments »

Today I made the shackle, The latch bolt, and the lever. The shackle is made of walnut and the other parts are from maple. I also drilled the back face and after sanding all the parts did a dry fit of the lock body and back face to make sure all parts worked properly. I then applied Arm R Seal to the top of the lock body. It is very hard to get to after assembly. After some more fitting I will glue the back to the center then the front.

Lessons Learned #1: Appeasing the jointer

03-13-2010 01:58 AM by live4ever | 8 comments »

There’s nothing like the sense of accomplishment when you’re able to successfully troubleshoot a problem. I was having some snipe issues with my Ridgid 6” jointer. The last 2” or so of the trailing end was getting gouged. A common issue with jointers, I hear. So I set out to solve the problem. My careful and scientific analysis of the problem (reading the manual and browsing forums) led me to believe the knives were too high relative to the outfeed table. So ...

Whittling with a creative block...of wood

03-13-2010 12:43 AM by Stevinmarin | 14 comments »

I’ve been in a woodworking funk these past few weekends. Unable to really find an inspired project. So I decided to get a small chunk of wood and start whittling…something I haven’t done since I was a kid. It’s an invigorating exercise! So if you are at a loss for something to do, try whittling! It’s easy and requires nothing more than a pocket knife and a block of pine. If any of you have experienced a creative block, I’d love to hear suggestions on ove...

Wood Shows #11: Kitchener, Ontario 2010

03-13-2010 12:19 AM by MsDebbieP | 6 comments »

March 12/10 This afternoon Rick and I went to the Kitchener Wood Show to check out all the goodies as well as meet some fellow LumberJocks. We arrived early but we had some LJ pencils for John (Extreme Birdhouses) to hand out and so we got in a wee bit early, giving us some time to chat with John before the crowds arrived. How exciting it is to see John’s business become so successful. It was also, I might add, the highlight of the entire show. :) At the show, we saw lots of w...

Jelly Cupboard #1: Days 1,2,3,4,5

03-12-2010 11:37 PM by rcflyer23 | 3 comments »

I started a build on a Jelly Cupboard for the house the other night. So far I have been able to get the Carcass built and dry fitted most of the components. I used biscuits to join the sides together. From Windows Live Writer From Windows Live Writer I milled all the parts something I might not do next time around since I ended up re cutting a couple of parts. From Windows Live Writer I setup all the mortises and routed them out. This was my first time doing this and did pretty ...

A journey into the workshop. #48: Working on kitchen cabinet re-organization projects...

03-12-2010 11:23 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

So as I am a tool junkie, LOML is a Pampered Chef junkie, and over the years, she has accumulated pretty much the entire PC catalog, and in many cases, several of the more important items such as pitchers, bakers, gravy boats and such… Now the problem is, we have a pretty pathetic cabinet layout for the size house we have. So we quickly overran the available storage capacity of the cabinets… Now our upper cabinets do not butt up against the ceiling, but rather match the heig...

brother-in-law died

03-12-2010 11:12 PM by richgreer | 15 comments »

My wife’s brother just died. It was unexpected. He was only 68. His wife, who was 74, died 6 weeks ago. I’m a retired actuary. Actuaries maintain statistics on what is commonly called “heartbreak death”. This is the phenomenon of increased probability of death after the death of a spouse. Studies show a noticeable increase in death in the first 2 years after the death of a spouse. A formal term for quantifying this additional mortality is the “co...
