Here is another set of pictures from my Coffee Table project. I mentioned earlier that this top has been sitting around my shop for almost three years now. In that time it sustained some small nicks and gouges as I moved it around from corner to corner of the shop. These damaged areas are “design opportunities.” I’ll place inlayed designs in sections that are damaged. The center of the table will get a double fleure de lis figure. I’ll also utilize the descending o...
I recently ran an ad on craigslist to sell a router table & this is a copy of a reply I got. I bolded some things to be cautious about if you use craigslist. I stumbled across your craigslist posting for the Router table.A few weeks ago I had a rough time and was forced to sell some of my things on craigslist to pay the bills. One person came over to buy my mitre saw and router and gave me twice what I was asking for. When I asked him why, he explained that he wanted to help me out a...
Hi Marius, we had an integrated chatroom at http://lumberjocks.com/chat here on LJ in the early days but it was not used frequently. I’m planning to add an integrated chat solution later this year. In the meantime I added link to your chatroom to our Stickies (top right corner – gray STICKIES button). Hope it will take some attention. Thanks for your idea and free donation!---Thanks for the stickiesi remain logged in at the chatroom but there is a coffee cup icon you can ...
First of all, what is Facebook? Facebook is the most prolific social network out there. Essentially, it’s a place to keep in touch with your family and friends, sharing messages, photos, videos, links with them, and joining them in games. You can also find old friends – and lovers – like I have, and catch up. It’s pretty easy to use too. It originally started out on the campus of Harvard by a few undergrads looking to make an online “facebook” – a ...
Man, there is a LOT of wasted messages in TwitterLand. People can posted the dumbest stuff – “Just got a cup of coffee!”, “Can’t believe it’s Monday!” and so on. WHO CARES?! Then you have the sharks – “I make $2,600 a day on Google adsense – find out how!” – the get-rich-quick guys. And it seems some people just follow ANYONE in the hopes that those people will follow them back, building their following number. ...
Last night I was browsing the Craiglist tools and found a guy advertising a 4” Craftsman Jointer that had some surface rust but was in running condition for $15. My brother picked it up for me and I did some test runs. The jointer did a good job and seems to work well. I also found out once I had it that it was a 6 1/8” jointer and not a 4” one. I’m very happy with this score. Does anyone have any ideas on getting rid of the rust? Thanks in advance for any advice...
I am at a stand still with woodworking, my goal a few years ago was to start buying just the basic tools, machines. To make even simple items to sell, to help me wife, who most weeks works 8-16 hours over time every 2 weeks to make ends meet.My health and lower back problems prevent me from putting in even a full 8 hour shift, have tried returning to work 6 times in the past 5-6 years with no success. So l thought woodworking l can do from home when pain gets bad in lower back or my heart...

Alaska Jim's Comments of the Day #19: A new LJ Mentored Project......Integrating my old saw and the Super Sled into the Shop
Put on your thinking bonnet, because this is all interrelated stuff. If this seems complex, it is, mostly because there are contingencies based on performance, and I built my sled with these things in mind. Things like splitters have nothing to do with the sled. 1) Splitter. I have ordered Incra microsplitters, the ones with a metal skeleton, and they are in the mail. That will be my splitter solution. I agonized over this a long time, but if I don’t like something about them…....
