First Box #4: Cut to size

11-27-2009 08:20 PM by Bret | 6 comments »

(This is actually part 5 but I messed up the way I added them so they got reversed….) I ventured back into the shop today to continue prepping my box stock. I planed it down to roughly 1/2” and used my tablesaw to size all the pieces the same. I then went to my router table and mitered the ends of the end pieces lying flat on the table. So far so good. But when I went to route the front and back, I had signifigant breakage & tearout. Even slowing down the bit d...

This year's postings Lol

11-27-2009 02:01 PM by EaglewoodsPres | 12 comments »

Hey everyone, Seems I only get once a year to sit and update my lumberjocks. Usually happens around the holidays. This year has been the best and the worst. It’s funny how life can change your priorities in an instant. My whole life now is my family. I have gotten full custody of my two boys CJ and Cody from Florida and I got married. My boys, 14 and 11 have needed alot of attention the last year and that really put a hault to the production in the shop. I made the mistake of t...

Microsoft Paint Makes a Nice Presentation

11-27-2009 03:33 AM by miles125 | 8 comments »

Heres a series of photos where i used Paint to give the customer some ideas of what I could do for his front entry. I took a pic of his existing 8 panel applied mould door and super imposed on top of it from there. He seemed to like it and it was pretty quick to produce.

Grumbles from the shop #9: Happy ThanksGrumblings Day!

11-27-2009 03:04 AM by dennis mitchell | 16 comments »

Ya I had to work today! Finely got a job and the contractor screws me on the schedule. But damn it was nice to play behind the saw. Grumbling done right has to start with the knowledge that I’ve got it made. One of the few independent Americans left. I get to do what my skills and talent direct me towards rather than deal with the legal/corporate/bureaucratic, anything for the mighty dollar, world of business the rest of America gets to suffer with. I sometimes grumble about how many pe...

Six pictures @ 1000 words each = 6000 words. I just need to attach the seats, plug the holes and a final sanding.

Workshop Improvement #1: Finally - Thanksgiving shop renovation

11-27-2009 12:44 AM by johngoes | 4 comments »

Months & months ago I set my sight on improving this mess: to this sketch-up vision: (Observing the back wall for cabinets etc) As a result of the economy, I was given a boatload of unpaid vacation days for the company to cut costs and so I have had from last Friday until Monday to start to tackle the shop upgrade. I had an ulterior motive for this – I got a Jet 1220 lathe for Christmas (early) and needed a place to put it and the shop renovation makes that possible. ...

First Box #5: Fresh start (so far)

11-27-2009 12:44 AM by Bret | 5 comments »

(This is actually part 4, but I messed up setting its Series until after I had part 5 written, which got added as part 4…) So far so good. I picked up a new piece of curly maple (with plenty to spare!) and after cutting it down to roughly the size I’d need for the project and after removing the knots which spoiled the ends of the board (but which saved me 10% at Woodcraft!) I proceeded to joint an edge and cut it down to rough size for the box. Now I need to decide how to d...
