My first shavings

11-03-2010 01:24 PM by Siegel_KenEvil | 8 comments »

This was a long process. I took my #3 hand-me-down plane to a free hand plane tune-up class at Woodcraft. As I was being educated, I realized I was missing the lever cap. Mentioning this to the fellas at work, a co-worker gave me his old planes. At the same time, I was working with the great people at DMT. DMT is a great company. The helped me get an affordable complete set and also threw in some demo stones. I finally finished cleaning up and tuning up a Victor #4 and made my firs...

I'm Destroyed

11-03-2010 08:53 AM by sawblade1 | 31 comments »

Good morning LJ’s I don’t want to burden anyone but I just need an ear to listen. Last night I lost all common respect, courtesy, and faith in my fellow man at work :( Yesterday was bad but it wasn’t the worst compared to today, The shift was usual up until about 8:30 when one of my newer co-workers began acting like he was watching me (Supervisory style) Well me and my partner went on as usual stopping at lunch and eating on our cart where we were, Here’s where it...

Extremely Average #285: A bit more practice

11-03-2010 04:54 AM by Ecocandle | 3 comments »

Hello All, I always feel badly when I post in here, if my blog isn’t about woodworking. Tonight it is! The last week has been almost entirely about getting the Kindle book ready, but now that I am back home, I made it down into the shop. Another half blind dovetail cut and I feel good about it. I also have a guess the photo contest. No prize though, but it might still be fun. It might not be fun…I don’t know…it is the sort of thing I enjoy though. http://su...

wood gloat #2: Tasmanian Blackwood

11-03-2010 03:49 AM by moshel | 9 comments »

One of my fellow LJ’s drew my attention to a sale on trademe (our local ebay) of a log of Tasmanian blackwood. I made a bid on it and to my surprise i won! the auction was for 3 lengths of 2.5 meter, ~50-60cm diameter. the tree was over 100 years old. I went there yesterday and started to mill with my alaskan – it was very hard work – this timber is hard!By the end of the day I had 5 nice slabs, 7cm thick and I am not even 1/4 way through!!!! I couldn’t resist the t...

Building Rivergirl's Tool Box #1: conclusion

11-03-2010 03:48 AM by helluvawreck | 19 comments »

I will conclude this blog on the building of rivergirl’s toolbox. I worked real hard this past weekend on rivergirl’s tool box. It is going very well because I have put my heart and soul in it and I will finish what I say I will do. My wife and my two daughters have watched me work on her toolbox these last two weekends and they know that I am putting my heart and soul in it and they are fine with that because they know my heart and soul and they know my personality and know that ...

The Adventures of Carving, "Green Man" #3: Carving "Green Man" Last Steps.

11-03-2010 03:23 AM by Dennis Zongker | 38 comments »

Approximately 90% done. These next 10 pictures are showing how to carve the leaves. Next I will smooth out the chisels carving marks with more carving knifes and small files. I don’t want to use any sand paper. Because, I want him to look like he really is coming out of the trees. Then I will finish him with a clear Lacquer. So, in about a week or so I should be able to post him in the projects. Thanks for looking. And happy woodworking.

Crafts Shows R Us #16: Sometimes It's Just Plain Bad

11-03-2010 02:45 AM by closetguy | 10 comments »

I seem to always talk about the good shows and mention that I have bad shows, but I have never really elaborated about the bad ones. It’s just normal human nature to talk about the successes and not the failures. The craft show business is not always a bed of roses and I have more than my share of failures each year. So what are the pitfalls? In my mind, a bad show is one with low or no sales. I’ve been fortunate that I have never lost money at a show. I always make sales, but I also ...

It's getting to be that time of year.

11-03-2010 12:29 AM by Roger Clark aka Rex | 9 comments »

The holiday season is almost upon us and just about everyone’s broke and scratching around figuring what little gift that a woodworker would use and enjoy, but will be very reasonable to buy.My middle name must be tight a** because I always find great deals and balk at “wish” prices given out by vendors – They seem to go way beyond my threshold of pain. Here is a couple of items I have got and use more than I thought I ever would – and they are inexpensive. ...

Coffee Lounge Closed

11-02-2010 09:44 PM by Martin Sojka | 222 comments »

The recent happenings in the forums made me think seriously about the future of LumberJocks. This website has been built on the foundation of woodworking projects and knowledge sharing instead of general chat site for those that just want to buddy around. I came to a conclusion that these two principal differences cannot coexist under one roof. I had to make this tough decision as soon as possible before it is too late. And I decided to go back to the roots of what made LumberJocks so spec...
