The Big Move #1: From Minneapolis to Phoenix

09-22-2010 08:38 AM by dq2 | 5 comments »

Back in June of 2005, I was offered a job in Phoenix. My wife and I flew out to find a place to live. We had 3 days. The night of the last day we finally found a house to rent. Never had been to Phoenix, but trusted our instincts. Back to Minneapolis. Two weeks to pack our 35 years of memories. (You know how much stuff you accumulate in that amount of time?) Got to Phoenix the end of June in time to start the new job. Moving van arrived 5 days later. I had only packed a few of my wood shop...

The great Lumberjocks shoe challenge #1: Introduction

09-22-2010 01:57 AM by Jordan | 72 comments »

As a former grade school and dance teacher, I think I was cut out for motivating people to recognize their strengths. And as a carver who lives on his own creations, I have had to motivate and challenge myself on a daily basis. Over the years, I have developed my skills by recreating everyday objects – in my case, shoes. Shoes and boots of every kind – skates, cowboy boots, winter boots, running shoes…and the list goes on. (in real life I also have a shoe fetish.) I carved e...

Performax 22-44 paper loading tool

09-22-2010 01:19 AM by spaids | 8 comments »

On a review of the Performax 22-44 some of the jocks were saying they don’t use the little paper changing tool. It works so well I am convinced that they must not be using it right. So this is the tool. Its only to be used on the clip on the right side. The other clip is not made the same way and your finger really is the easiest tool for that one. Now just hook the tool in the hole in the top of the clip. Pull the handle straight out. Then turn it counter cloc...

How to use a Kerfmaker (trying to help out!) Blog.

09-21-2010 09:14 PM by mafe | 43 comments »

How to use a KerfmakerOk, many asked me this question, and I have seen it again and again on LJ. If you need to find out how to make one, you can see my Kerfmaker 'Brass'n wood'. Another fun gadget is the tenonmarker: I’ll try to explain, as well as I can, feel free to ask questions if I do not make myself clear (I’m only human): Collect what is needed, in this case a base stock and two thinner side stocks, and of course a Kerfmaker...
