A Hanging Wall

The Commission  About the beginning of May, I met with a friend of a friend at their new photography studio in Fairbanks, Alaska. Heath and his wife Audrey worked the last several months to establish their business in a new location and they had a need for some specialized woodworking. Between the two, it’s obvious that they have a complimentary advanced sense of design and spacial relation. On entering the new studio and office of Focus Unbound Photography, it’s immediately apparen...

Plane and Simple

05-28-2010 04:02 PM by Kerry Drake | 9 comments »

A few months back a member of my extended family (on my wife’s side) decided to sell their house and move south.  In the basement of the house was a collection of old tools from a grandfather who had passed away, and I bought a whole kitten-caboodle for $100.00 (see This Post from January). Well, hidden in that lot was a little filthy dirty block plane that I didn’t really pay much attention to.  However I recently bought a set of dremel cleaning bits and decided to c...

My experince at the "Lowes cutting center"

05-28-2010 08:53 AM by thatwoodworkingguy | 24 comments »

I arrived at lowes like any other today. A very small list. Some kreg screws and a 4×8 sheet of 1/4” birch ply for drawer bottoms. After browsing the tool isles and getting my screws I got my sheet and realized I had my car not truck and that I was going to have to have the sheet cut down to 4 2×4 sheets.All good right? Nope.I pressed the button on the wall near the panel saw and heard the command go off on the loudspeaker that something needed to be cut.After waiting almost 1...

My Woodcraft experience

05-28-2010 06:46 AM by ackychris | 14 comments »

I was just thinking that it’s pretty easy to slam a company when they screw up, but when they get it right it often goes unmentioned. Woodcraft, here’s to you. In case you don’t get to the end of this post, the moral of the story is that Woodcraft (online, not local) totally came through for me. I’ve ordered a few things from Woodcraft, and never had a problem. There aren’t any woodworking stores within two hours of where I live (unless you count the BORG&#...

Hello LJs, As some of you know, on occassion, I tend to drift off topic and do a bit of creative writing. Today was such a day. There is a bit of back story here. My favorite blog in the entire world is entitled ‘Slummy Single Mummy’, and it one of a billion mommy blogs on the internet. I am single, male, 43, no children. I am not her demographic. Every once in a while I stumble across a gem of a writer, and Jo is such a find. She has a writing style that is incredibly...
