The American Craftsman Workshop Has The Twitters!

03-11-2010 12:04 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 5 comments »

The ACW is now set up on Twitter. You can follow me on my personal blog, on Twitter, or here at LJ. I am working on many things for my site so you all will have to stay tuned. Until you get involved with this stuff, you’ve got no idea how much work goes into The WoodWhisperer, Matts Basement Workshop, or the LumberJock’s community (I am sure that is a whole other beast to deal with.) At Twitter my screen name is ToddInMontana. You can also find me under my name Todd...

Craftsman Jointer

03-10-2010 10:29 PM by stuk4x4 | 8 comments »

I made what I feel to be a great buy on Craigslist today. For $25 I purchased a 6 inch jointer. After geting it home and pulling the Model number off it I was able to find out some specifics and even track a parts listing down. It is in OK shape, so I need to clean it up and mount the motor to it. The jointer itself is mounted to a very sturdy cabinet that is also mounted on casters. having it mounted on casters is a huge plus for me as I have limited space and am always moving stuff aro...

Southeast Michigan LumberJocks BBQ

03-10-2010 09:22 PM by Kristoffer | 9 comments »

This is just going to be a quick blog to get you to mark your calenders. I will post the rest of the details and a map in the very near future. I have mentioned in a few PMs that I’ve been thinking about hosting a southeast Michigan LJs BBQ this spring or summer at our beach property in Novi, MI. Well, I’ve finally come up with a definite date. The BBQ will be on Saturday May 8th, 2010. Here is what I’m hoping to have as far as activities: - Pot luck meal and snacks...

Stanley #7 Restoration #1: Getting Started

03-10-2010 08:44 PM by dfdye | 10 comments »

A while back I posted a review of a cheap #4 Footprint plane I bought and tuned up. During the discussion, I mentioned that I was looking to buy a #7 plane, and WayneC generously offered to sell me one of his bargain finds. He warned me that it was pretty dirty, and that there were some minor defects, (but that is of course to be expected of a tool of this vintage) but that it was in good user condition, so I jumped at the opportunity and had him send it along. A few days later, an extre...

Great Expectations - an alternative to Charles Dickens' Novel #1: Today's theme - Patience

03-10-2010 06:57 PM by stefang | 16 comments »

I really enjoy woodworking now much more than I did in the past. I started thinking about why this was and came to a few conclusions that I’d like to share with my fellow LJ’ers. It might be just boring or it might strike a chord. I will try to find a suitable theme for each blog in this series. If there isn’t much response I will just close it down. I thought it would be interesting to hear your take on each days theme, so I hope you will join in with your thoughts. R...

Setting up shop #3: Work Bench Progress Pictures and Observations About Saw Horses

03-10-2010 06:27 PM by dfdye | 3 comments »

I finally got the pictures uploaded to photobucket, so here goes: The legs showing the biscuits, just before glue up. Here I am leveling the two MDF pieces on saw horses prior to glue up. Shims between the saw horses and MDF at appropriate points brought the low points up to make a dead flat surface, at least according to my cheap aluminum extrusion straight edge! (I just noticed that the shadows from the flash make it look like there is a gap at the right end of the straight ed...

Wooden Hinges for Boxes - Installation Part 2 and Final

03-10-2010 01:10 PM by stefang | 13 comments »

Here is the finished glue-up. Everything went well with a good result. There are other things that have to be done to save this box. The rough gap below and along the the length of the hinge on the right side has to be repaired. I will have to glue in a thin strip. The inside where the hinge is mounted isn’t as good as I would like. This is due to my hinge being a little out of round. I can live with it though, and if I make the box nice enough inside the eye will be drawn to the pos...

005: scrap cutoff shelves #3: still filling them up

03-10-2010 12:53 PM by Gary Fixler | 6 comments »

My new scrap cutoffs shelves are handy for odds and ends, too, like the little roll of brown paper that’s always in my way, rolled-up foam sheeting, some jointed and planed 2×2s I use as straight bars during panel glue-ups, and a few sets of rails for my router bridge setup. You know… all the narrower stuff under 2’ long. I also finally emptied the two boxes of exotic turning blanks (on sale still!) that I got quite a long time ago. It’s very easy to forget...
