Marking knife

10-28-2010 04:47 PM by PaBull | 9 comments »

OK, I was not going to start this knife for a while, too busy….. but I could not help myself. (I might need help) I found a piece of spalted pallet wood. With heart and sap wood. I think it’s kinda pretty. (This one is for you Jusfine ) I bought a lathe about a year ago ($75, garage sale, including the chisels), but I never dared to turn it on. Well, last night was the night, and I am still here. For the knife I used an old sawzall blade, the same as I did with the ca...

Did I Ever Tell You Folks That I'm a Junk-a-holic?

10-28-2010 04:28 PM by helluvawreck | 47 comments »

Folks, I’m a junk-a-holic. I don’t know how to put it any other way than that. Here are some pictures of some of my junk. Most of it is electro-mechanical stuff, power-transmission stuff, machine parts, old machines, and hardware. The last two pictures are the two ways you can get to my office. If you ever do drop by please don’t ever get lost because you may never find your way back out. We call this the Dungeon. :-[ ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #147: There's No Place Like Home

10-28-2010 11:52 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

After yesterday’s adventure, I am happy to be able to stay at home and get some work done today. Although I know it is good for me to venture out into the real world sometimes, I can’t help but appreciate the comfort and security of my own surroundings. I have always been someone who enjoys their surroundings, and even though I look forward to the day trips I take, there is something comforting and safe about returning home. I don’t think that it is severe enough to be re...

sawdust chronicles challenge #8: still one more update

10-28-2010 08:11 AM by BigTiny | 8 comments »

Greetings all. Well, finally got the camera back from the wife, only to find I hadn’t installed the software to use it on our new computer. Took me ages to find the disk. Oh well. finally back in business. There are two photos here, one of the completed cubes for the top. The other is of a couple of pieces from the same flitch of cherry veneer, one raw and one about a minute after wiping it with a sponge moistened with a 1 to 50 by volume solution of lye in distilled water. Q...

Had Me A Visitor Today....

10-28-2010 04:20 AM by Maveric777 | 30 comments »

What a great afternoon! I was having a blast in the shop when I get the phone call from my buddy and fellow Lumber Jock Cozmo35 trying to get directions to my house. Turns out he was on his way from his home in the Dallas area to his deer camp down in Louisiana and he made a detour through Texarkana to say hi. Let me say that I was tickled to death to have a fellow LJ whom I respect highly to be sitting in my shop just talking shop…. My wife came out and I mentioned to her that Mike ...

Maker's Mark Brass Plates Arrive

10-28-2010 04:03 AM by DoctorDan | 6 comments »

At the start of July2010, I ordered 30 custom made brass plates to label my furniture projects (see blog post.) Today, just under 4 months later, they arrived, and don’t they look snazzy. Despite being a little slow, I tip my hat to Vidi at Maker’s Mark, great product and service. (Though I thought I ordered the smaller 25mm version.)

Shop in the Sky #2: New Tools!

10-28-2010 02:40 AM by EROCK | 3 comments »

Well, I haven’t had a chance to work on the wall yet, but I did purchase some new goodies for the shop! I had to go to Bellingham, Wa today for business, so I stopped in at the Grizzly showroom to take a look around. Good thing for me, bad thing for my wallet. I ended up walking out with the G0555P 14” Polar Bear Series bandsaw with the 6” riser block kit and a G8027 dust collector. Now I have to assemble them and hopefully get the walls put up this weekend. More to come.

Bamboo #2

10-28-2010 01:12 AM by WoodArtbyJR | 5 comments »

Well, here are the steps that I accomplished to get to this point. I did run the cut strips thru the drum sander to clean them up a little and to take any imperfections out so the glue would hold better, at least that was the plan. I hope to take the clamps off tomorrow and maybe run it thru the drum sander to see if my design will hold true. Misc. bamboo pieces I have to work with Cut blanks to be cut into strips Cut strips Strips turned on edge Bundled edge pieces Hopefu...

Workbench #8: Installing the end vise

10-28-2010 12:20 AM by Clay Ortiz | 3 comments »

Well work picked up for a while so I haven’t had time to post any progress till now. In this post I will show what I had to do to get the Veritas Twin-Screw vise mounted. I originally was planning on using the Lie-Nielsen Twin-Screw vise but had to change when I realized the dog holes would interfere with the chain. The biggest issue with the change was that the instructions for the Veritas vise said you needed to have 1-1/2” of clearance from the bottom of the top for the receive...

Bedroom Wall Unit #8: Spraying is becoming better

10-27-2010 10:51 PM by depictureboy | 2 comments »

I want to thank everyone who commented on my spraying conundrums the last couple weeks… I am now adding 2 dixie cups of denatured alcohol to 1 quart (sprayer cup) of dewaxed shellac…it is going much better. I also realized that the sprayer shipped with the largest needle installed. I downgraded to the smallest and that seems to be going much better now too…. You cant see it in the picture, but the finish is super clean…I put on about 6 coats last night and yo...
