Owning your own business (Post #6) why some people think you can't do it.

10-19-2010 10:10 PM by nate22 | 10 comments »

Good afternoon lumberjocks. Why is it some people are so negative about somethings. You are probably thinking what am I talking about. What I mean is that people will tell you that you can’t do it or it won’t happen. I have had this happen to me. Even some of my family used to tell me that with me owning my own business. Well I am usually a nice person until someone tells me that. I almost think that they are jelous because they can’t do it or they try to make you ups...

Dremel Multimax blade gripe

10-19-2010 09:06 PM by Don Butler | 12 comments »

I like and use my dremel tools a lot. I have several. The other day, though, I was disappointed and a little ticked off with Dremel. I needed to cut some holes in our ceiling for pendant lamps and after trying with other tools that raised a storm of plaster dust I decided that the multimax tool woul be less messy.So I bought one of their fourteen buck straight cutting blades for drywall and wood. While cutting the second hole I noticed a serious slow down in cutting and shut down to ...

Quest for a bigger TV #1: So we want to get a bigger TV

10-19-2010 06:02 PM by JBfromMN | 4 comments »

I thought I would share with you all my Fathers quest to get a larger TV. Now what does this have to do with woodworking you ask….. Well you see the Entertainment Center my parents had is a 3 piece set they purchased at Home Furniture several years ago. It is a nice system, the problem lies that is does not really have the room for the newer large flat screen TVs. My parents had a 32 inch CRT tv in there that JUST barely fits. My dad wanted to get a flat sceen TV but the larges...

Evolution of my router planer #1: First Version: 1.0

10-19-2010 06:02 PM by TZH | 9 comments »

One of the things I found out very early on in my type of woodworking is that the slabs I use in my projects are often in dire need of planing. The problem with this is the thickness planer I had was not large enough to accommodate the width of most of these slabs. So, I began reviewing my old book and magazine libraries and surfing the Net to try and find something else that might meet the need for the type of work I planned to do. The results of my search were mixed. The very first opti...

The great Lumberjocks shoe challenge #16: The end - tips on texturing and painting

10-19-2010 06:00 PM by Jordan | 16 comments »

Here we are – the final blog in the shoe challenge series. I know some of you are finished and some of you are nearing the end and some of you are half way through. That’s fine, there’s still lots of time. I wanted to give you some tips on finishing your shoe and because some of the details probably can’t be seen by camera until painted over, I’m going to draw some of my texture on my shoe just to shoe you what I mean. I will do this throughout today. If yo...

Ali's Workbench w/ Shop Made Wagon Vise #1: 3 1/2" Thick Workbench top w/ Shop Made Wagon Vise - Almost Done!

10-19-2010 05:59 PM by Alihorneff37 | 6 comments »

Here is a better pic of my workbench top and shop made end vise. The legs are almost done. I did some experimentation with a drawbore (name?) tenon that you can see on the back end. The empty space is where the half long tool tray will be. Honestly, I am undecided about the tool tray. Would it even be possible to just fill it in? Suggestions would be great! :) This is my first attempt at dovetails. And they are extremely hard! I am sure you can see the little spaces/discolorations but I r...

Milling 3" Black Walnut Slabs for fireplace mantels

10-19-2010 03:13 PM by Matt Pec | 3 comments »

I’ll be milling some 6’ long Black Walnut today for a customer who’s interested in fireplace mantels. Pics to follow. I’m thrilled…it’s been awhile since I’ve cut anything 3” or thicker. Okay, several hours later and I’m done with the milling. Pics are coming up shortly. I ended up with (2) 12/4 slabs 6’ long, 8-11” wide and (1) 5/4 board that was all I could salvage from the remainder of the log. Hope you like em! F...

Tool Overview #3: Going Plane Crazy...

10-19-2010 01:16 PM by David Craig | 15 comments »

Well, it would appear that I am sliding a little further down the slippery slope. I can see where, once you get started down a certain road, it is a little difficult to get off of it. A little over a month ago, my plane collection consisted of nothing, nada, zip. Now I have four, and tomorrow I am expecting the shipment of number five. It started innocently enough. I received a block plane as a thank you/birthday gift. I like mechanical things. I am a little slow on the take sometimes, but...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #138: Getting the Picture

10-19-2010 12:56 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am glad that yesterday is behind me. I am not (really) complaining, but it is good that today is a new day and will be much less tedious than yesterday. It wasn’t disastrous or anything like that, but it was just the kind of day where it seemed that I had to work much harder than usual to achieve not greatness, but mediocrity. I don’t mind working that hard for greatness. In that case, the end results is its own reward. I worked much harder yesterday than I did on the day w...

7 finger Tom

10-19-2010 11:49 AM by poppatom | 10 comments »

After completing my last project I usually gather all the scrap pieces up and make little boxes out of them. Yesterday morning around 4 a.m. I was in the shop doing just that, I put a new saw blades on and was just getting started when the wood pinched and kicked back hitting me right on the end of my left index finger with such force that it took the nail and a lot of meat with it! I thought at first I had stuck my finger in the blade but after recanting the event I’m almost certain it...
