Well, not really, but I have the capability now… I’ve been wanting to make a sort of Router Table ever since Bob Kollman sent me a care package of Plastics… No matter what idea I finally decide upon, all of my thought’s unifying theme is using the plastic as the top…So I took a couple hours this morning to finally make the top or work surface…I marked the locations of the screws with the 1/4” scuff plate that was on the Router and simply made an exten...
Still need to do the drawer fronts, but the doors are in! And they are kinda snazzy, if I do say so myself. Note, in particular, the grain matching.
Sharpening station wet grinder (Thormek, Sheppac, Jet, whatever). #1: Fitting Tormek profiled leather wheels on a Scheppac (for dummies)
Fitting Tormek profiled leather wheels on a Scheppac TIGER200S watersharpener. And preparing them for use.Ok some will ask why! And the answer are simple I could not get hold of a Scheppac wheel… So if others are having the same problem:What do you do when you are set up for woodturning, and want’s razor sharp irons, for the job?You buy a watersharpening system, it’s fast and easy, and makes really razorsharp edges.This was all wonderful for me until I realized I c...
It’s hard to believe that four years have past us by since we joined Lumberjocks. This has been a wondrous journey for two people who’ve lived in one place all of our lives. Through the magic of the internet, we now have friends on almost every corner of the Earth. It’s been fun sharing our interests with all of you. We’d like to thank Martin for helping us on this four year jaunt, plus the rest of you JOCKS out there. We started out at 120 members, ...
Yesterday turned out to be a day of learning. For me, those are always good days. I had originally planned to take some quick pictures of the new project and one that my partner was just finished with and then spend the rest of the day drawing and working on the next one. That just wasn’t how it turned out to be. One of the best thing about being your own boss and keeping on schedule is that it allows you the flexibility to deviate from that schedule most of the time.

Grandmothers serving tray – MumseMy grandmother had a old serving tray for 30 years, that she loved – but it was completely worn out, the wood had fallen apart, and the paint had beed worn of during the years. In other words it was the end. When my mother asked her what she wished for christmas, her big wish was a new serving tray, but it had to be like the old one she said… So she asked my mother if she could ask me to restore it instead of buing a new. And so this becam...
Hello All, As you know, if you read my blog, I have been trying to make a tiny box from Doug Stowe’s book, “Basic Box Making”. I have just completed my spline jig for my router table and tried it out today. There was success, joy, maybe a bit of dancing. I am very excited. I hope to have one (of 12) of my boxes completely finished tomorrow. http://su.pr/2CMbXO Brian
