I’ve been building speakers for most of my life. It’s what led me into woodworking. Sadly, I don’t have a lot to show for it. I’ve either sold or given away every set I’ve ever built with only one exception, the set I’m currently running. Even worse, from a woodworking perspective, they’re pretty sad. Made entirely of MDF and finished with rattle-can stone finish paint, they aren’t pretty. I’m planning to rectify this situation. My next...

Finally, I get a great piece of ash

10-15-2009 10:11 PM by Shopsmithtom | 9 comments »

A couple of years ago a 2 trunk white ash went over on our vacation property & lodged in the crotch of a dead & unstable white birch at about a 45deg angle. Being an amateur in the woods with a chainsaw, not a lumberjack, (you might want to go to youtube & search the lumberjack song for a laugh) I decided to wait until it broke out & fell to the ground instead of onto me. It did so over last winter, so a friend & I cut it into 12 foot logs – 8 foot is the minimum the...

Big Thank You to all the Lumberjocks

10-15-2009 07:44 PM by Rustic | 5 comments »

This is a big thank you to not just the LJ’s who helped me with my CMS question, but to all of you. I guess I was having a bad day when I posted a question about my CMS, or just had a MASSIVE brain fart. You guys gave me some suggestions that I should have already known, but some how forgot (old age). I was able to clean up my cuts by just adding a piece of 1/8 inch plywood to my fence. Not only did it help with tear out, but I am able to make a more accurate cut every time. I know, I k...

Taking Charge In One's Own Shop

10-15-2009 05:18 PM by BarbS | 20 comments »

I had an exciting day yesterday when a very talented local woodworker contacted me through LJ and asked to meet. If it hadn’t been for LumberJocks, we wouldn’t have known each other (username: Autumn). I arrived at her address to find a beautiful little studio in back of the main house, airy and light, in good order and with a ‘homey’ feel to it that told me instantly she spends a lot of her time there. A high-quality box commission was on her work table, with a ve...

A journey into the workshop. #22: Not much shop time this week. But a little bit of progress...

10-15-2009 04:27 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

My big plans for my week got tossed to the curb between dealing with an unexpected cardiac surgery on my BIL, and work running rather late, I just haven’t had much time in the shop. What evening I did have open to myself (tuesday) was hot and humid, (85 degrees 100% humidity, ICK!) so I did not WANT to be out there… I did get 3 reasonable things done since Sunday though… #1. Removed all the junk from on top of the table saw, and workbench and put it away. Considering t...

Shaped Wooden Hinges #2: The Cutting

10-15-2009 02:39 PM by littlecope | 12 comments »

Yesterday the first installment ended with all the holes having been drilled for the two pairs of hingesIt’s all Scroll Saw work from here! I took a few minutes first to police the area though. It had gotten a little out of hand, even for me!!The work begins with slicing off the waste area which exposes the side drilling.Next is the beginning of the shaping. Side cuts first. These are a bear to cut!! Scroll Saws are not Chop Saws! They’ll do this sort of cutting, through about 1 1...
