07-21-2010 03:15 PM by kosta | 1 comment »

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.

going green #3: Arboform

07-21-2010 06:38 AM by Gary Fixler | 4 comments »

I’ve been noticing some press recently surrounding Arboform, a plastic-like compound invented by 2 German guys, and made from lignin, which they get from the pulp-manufacturing industry. It’s a byproduct of paper-making and related industries, so there’s tons of the stuff generated every year (130M lbs/65K tons). The first article I saw on it was over at Space Mart, which states that the lignin is “combined with resins, flax and other natural fibers” and “f...

Butcher Block Kitchen Table #8: Glued Up

07-21-2010 06:34 AM by Jimi_C | 1 comment »

Here’s the glue up. First I glued the short sides together (no pics, sorry) with a spacer clamped below the legs near where the shelf would be, just to make sure everything stayed square. After both sides dried for a bit, I took the clamps off, cleaned up the squeeze out, and glued the whole thing together: After the clamps came off, here’s what it looked like: Everything is remarkably square – considering all of these pieces were in my car for a week dur...

Joinery #2: Don't get your drawers in a twist

07-21-2010 03:56 AM by Rob Bois | 3 comments »

I have done videos in the past about how I handle hand cut dovetails for drawers, so for this current project I decided it didn’t make much sense to just highlight the same techniques. Instead, I focused on several challenges I faced with this most recent set of drawers, ranging from some tricky grain to sharpening fatigue. This won’t teach you how to build a drawer, but you might find a few tips you can apply in your shop.

Another day, another nickle #23: OUCH, again!!!

07-21-2010 12:57 AM by Thos. Angle | 19 comments »

I apologize for neglecting my friends here at LJ. Since this morning, I will have some extra time on my hands. This morning I went to the corral at 6:30 and saddled up a horse that I hadn’t ridden that much. I rode out and wrangled the horses into the corral. As I started to sort up the horses into 2 pens, The knothead I was riding decided to start bucking. He was spinning to the left. As he came around I lost my right stirrup and that was the end of that. I landed on my right shoulder ...
