Curly Maple

02-25-2010 09:04 PM by richgreer | 7 comments »

I just received my order of 30 board feet of curly maple. It is gorgeous. I ordered it over the internet from a company that I had never dealt with before, MapleLeaf Hardwoods in Hughesville, PA. They sent me a picture but you never really know what you are getting until you see it for real. I am so relieved. This wood is better than I ever imagined. All of the boards come from the same tree so the pattern is consistent in all of the boards. I’m going to buy some cherry ...

I Hate Moving! But I Love New Shop Setup!

02-25-2010 08:38 PM by SNSpencer | 3 comments »

I am moving into a new house and I hate the process. The worst parts are lack of internet access and of course, my enter shop is in boxes. I miss putting wood to blade already. But I am excited to set up the new shop. I brought all my garage cabinets from the old place. The best part is that I am going from a 1 car garage with lousy electrical to a two car, extra deep garage with outlets all over the place. There is even a 220 outlet. I may just have to rewire my table saw.

Wood Talk Online #67

02-25-2010 07:27 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 3 comments »

I don’t know how many folks are aware of our little audio podcast, Wood Talk Online, but I figured I would post it here at Lumberjocks once in a while. The show usually contains industry news, voicemails, sweet deals, community happenings, and a whole lot of “shop talk”. We also do the show live and have a bustling chat room that tends to distract us now and then. :) Check it out! Download MP3 Questions or Comments? You can get a hold of us by either dropping us an ema...

New beginnings

02-25-2010 05:03 PM by MakingScraps | 13 comments »

Hi fellow lumberjocks. I figured I would give a little background since I am new to the site. I have always enjoyed designing and building things that make my life easier/better/more fun. Years ago I tried my hand at woodworking, but, without any decent tools I was quickly disappointed when my project came out looking worse than the scraps I made it from. Fast forward to today and the woodworking bug has bitten me again. Fortunately I plan on doing it right this time. I have been setting u...

005: scrap cutoff shelves #2: and now there are two

02-25-2010 01:33 PM by Gary Fixler | 14 comments »

All the pieces for both units were cut out at the same time, so there was another waiting to be assembled. I spent some time today on that. Here it is next to the first one, waiting to be filled up: I’ll have to find a new place to hang my roller stand, but that’s okay, as I’ve only been able to hang one of the two here on its over-the-rafters hooks. Right now it’s immediately in front of the new shelving: I learned something interesting about French clea...

Producing a small Table

02-25-2010 12:15 PM by TemplateTom | 4 comments »

Recently I was requested to produce a couple of small tables for our church, not tables you would sit at but small tables to add a vase of flowers to elevate them of the ground 200mm high. This did create a problem because of the size of the various pieces I would require to produce in the construction. I needed to keep Safety as a high priority. The centre column was made up from six pieces of material at an angle of 60 degrees to form a hexagon. The three legs were produced from ma...

The Pawn Shop #1: Where and how I find used tools

02-25-2010 08:24 AM by mkrok | 16 comments »

I’m never going to buy a new tool again. Yeah right, but I can try not too. They are so expensive. If you have been following my recent posts I’m getting back into the craft after a long layoff. This series is devoted to the fine are of picking up used tools on the cheap. Recently I discovered ( or re-discovered ) the pawn shop. OMG !!!!!!! the selection of tools is incredible. I recently picked up a Porter Cable 1 3/4 Hp router kit with plunge and standard base. Grea...
