New Crib #3

1823 days ago by MOJOE | 4 comments »

Well guys and gals, the wife is at a baby shower and the 2 yr old is with Grandma at the water park. That means I have a few hours to work on the new crib again!!!!! I recently cut the radius portions on the legs and headboard top. To do this I cut the first leg with a jigsaw (man I wish I had a bandsaw) then used it as a pattern on the router table with a flush trim bit. Everything went well until the last leg. The bit caught some grain and split a little bit of the lower leg. No worri...

One Year Today! Thank you Lumberjocks!

1823 days ago by Dennis Zongker | 28 comments »

It’s hard to believe I have been here on Lumberjocks for a full year today. What a inspiration this web site & the woodworkers have given to me. I have many great friends that I met on this web site. I wanted to thank you for supporting me though good times and bad times. I ended up having back surgery two week ago. I’m hoping to be back woodworking soon. I never thought I would miss working so much. All the woodworking on this site has keep me thinking positive. Thank you Lum...

How often do you clean your shop?

1823 days ago by Kjuly | 33 comments »

Why should you take away from your precious woodworking time to clean the shop? The obvious answer is safety. Woodworking is much safer without a lot of clutter and piles of saw dust everywhere. There is another reason and in some ways it’s just as important as having a clean, safe place to work. A few years ago, I was working in a cabinet shop building store fixtures for a large retailer. Three months had passed since I had been promoted to Journeyman Cabinetmaker. Times were good, w...

Kiln dried my backside!

1824 days ago by dbhost | 4 comments »

Since I don’t have the kiln dried 4×4 material for the legs of my FWW workbench project, my rails have been sitting, stacked neatly, stickered even behind the bandsaw waiting to be assembled. Well doing some obligatory shop cleanup this evening as I was getting ready to make some cuts for another project something odd caught my eye… The neatly stickered stack that was there last night had fallen to a disogranized pile. But why? I go to the pile, and try to stack &...

Bowling Alley Workbench #10: The Top #2: Flat and Shine

1824 days ago by PurpLev | 17 comments »

I had some good progress on the top today. it actually started a couple of days ago when I went ahead, cleaned up the buffer strip, and main top, and glued them up together, I also milled the end cap part (which is on top of the clamps in the photo): I also ground down one of the corner of the Lee-Valley Tailvise Nut so that I’ll be able to install the vise higher up and the nut will have less interference with the table top: I’m not a machinist, nor work with metal much (al...

Fence #1: The first section is complete

1824 days ago by kolwdwrkr | 6 comments »

I thought I would share what I am working on. As everyone knows my house forclosed and I ended up renting the house right next door to it. Yes, it’s very difficult to watch workers go in and out over there doing god knows what. Life goes on. Anyhow, I have an agreement to fix this place up if the rent stays down some. So one of the tasks I have is to rebuild the fence. This is the first section of fencing. I still have about 15 more sections and then a gate. The reason I am post...

The Workbench Quest #1: The saga begins...

1824 days ago by GhostOfSidHartman | 6 comments »

Well, after much searching and procrastinating and general “making do”, I realize I need a real workbench. Now, SWMBO and I are planning on building a new place on 30 acres in the next few years, at which time she will have a nice big stable for her hayburners, and I will get a real workshop. Not going to hold my breathe on that one though—it’s going to take a bit of time to figure out the details on that, so I know it will be more than 1-2 years before I have my o...
