New Woodworker Workshop Setup #4: I might be getting a little out of control

07-21-2010 07:11 PM by PocketHole69 | 7 comments »

I read somewhere that there are 4 essential tools for any shop: Table Saw Drill Press Router Band Saw Well, I just ordered the last one I was missing, a Jet 10in Band Saw Have to love Amazon Prime with $3.99 next day shipping for a bandsaw! I’ve read the reviews and this one seemed like the best deal for my needs- something compact and with the features and options I was looking for (fence, dust collection, extension wings, etc.) I’m pretty sure my wif...

Notes from the workday. #3: July 20th, daily progress

07-21-2010 06:59 PM by vicrider | 0 comments »

Well, we went for a short ride (awesome weather) and I was able to get back in time to apply the first coat of finish to the disassembled desk. I will do the another coat today. The top and base came out very nice. The desktop will need some sanding, the weather was a little too warm and the finish did not flow quite as well as I like. I think I should have thinned the finish a little more.I t might also be the fact that I am using a new spray gun, a Sata Minijet4 that I picked up used fro...

Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure: Items to Build for Fundraiser #7: Progress Update on the Fundraising Items

07-21-2010 05:30 PM by Jonathan | 2 comments »

I haven’t posted anything in a while regarding the progress on the projects I’m making for my wife’s fundraiser coming up next week, so I thought I might do that. The curly maple, walnut, and cherry cutting board/serving board is almost finished. I lost track of how many coats of mineral oil it has now seen. I’ve stepped my coats back to once a day. Another day or two, then it’ll get a final rubdown of George’s Club House Wax for the finishing touch. ...

Not much time to blog today, but I wanted to mark the vent with a log entry. It’s been a year already that I have been on Lumberjocks. I have gotten tons of ideas, made some friends, and hopefully shared some ideas that have helped folks. I look forward to many more years.

Rough Cut: Woodworking with Tommy Mac, first look

07-21-2010 05:00 PM by Eli | 23 comments »

Hey, everybody! I wanted to give you an update on the new show. We’ve been working ridiculously hard all summer and we’re just over half-way through filming this first season. The show will be airing on Public Television starting this October (check your local listings ;) ). GBH has put together the promotional “sizzle reel” (that’s an industry term…I think) to get everyone excited; I hope it works. It was cool for us to see, because it looks like a...

Daily Update #74: July 21, 2010 Make-a-wish finished

07-21-2010 03:52 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

I finished up the batman bed for Make-A-Wish. I started it late Monday and it needed to go out today to make the Next Monday make-over deadline. It turned out great! Now I need to get back on track with my scheduled projects. Today I’ll work on getting the Cherry pre-cut murphy bed ready to ship. This is one that the customer will build themself but I give them a little head start. I pre-cut the boards, edge the endgrain, sand them up, and drill most holes. After that I’...

Episode 75 Clamps from kostas workshop on Vimeo.In this episode I talk about clamps. There are a few other types of clamps I didn’t mention and thats just because I don’t use them. Pipe and Aluminum bar clamps are the 2 main types of clamps I didn’t talk about. There basically the same thing the only difference is the type of material the bar is made of. Pipe clamps are used mostly for gluing up panels.Parallel bar clamps work much better than pipe clamps because you have mo...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #48: The Best Way to Learn is to Teach Others

07-21-2010 01:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I was going to write about something totally different today. I had something happen yesterday that wasn’t very pleasant that related to my business and I was going to share it here and tell my story. It wasn’t a positive thing, but everything did turn out OK and I am back on track and I thought it may be one of those ‘lesson learned’ blogs that you might be interested in. Then I woke this morning and was going through my email and I received some responses from a...

I am so thankful that I found LJ’s. I so appreciate everyone’s patience with my questions. Woodworking has been an interesting and sometimes frustrating journey for me. And I am just at the beginning. For many years I tried to talk hubby into fixing stuff around the house that involved woodworking. I had embroidery, quilts, etc that needed framing and showcasing. He just never had a knack for it and he gave up pretty soon. So, since I was a teacher with all that time on...

Getting started at Lumberjocks #1: Lumberjocks is a great tool.

07-21-2010 08:47 AM by jerset | 14 comments »

Hello, I have been thinking about posting on Lumberjocks for a while, to thank the many hints, tips and ideas I have found here and to add a tip or two myself.I purchased a Grizzly table saw and worried for days about unloading a 600 pound monster, by myself. I live out in the country, with a rugged drive way, and no one to help. How I solved the problem and pictures will be forth coming.
