Wood Identification

09-16-2010 03:55 PM by WoodArtbyJR | 4 comments »

OK LJs, I need some help here. I went back to the barn where I got my Performax and picked up the clamps Ralph had. As I was leaving I walked by a wood pile and these two pieces were just laying on the ground. I kicked them over as asked what they were. He had no idea and said if I wanted them, they were mine. I was told by my wise old uncle one time, “NEVER PASS UP FREE WOOD”. So I threw them into the truck. I need help in trying to identifying them. The are local Pacific...

The new version is here! The new version is here!

09-16-2010 02:45 PM by BigTiny | 1 comment »

(the above in my best Steve Martin voice a la his movie “The Jerk”) ;) Google SketchUp version 8 is now available. Not sure what changes they made, as it looks and performs just like the old one and I’m not expert enough with it to notice any nuances. If anyone notices any significant improvements using the new version, please write a blog on it for the rest of us.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #105: A Silver Lining After a Dismal Day

09-16-2010 02:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Well, yesterday turned out to be a day where things just don’t go right. I know we have all had those days, and it was just my turn apparently. I wasn’t any one thing in particular. Just a lot of little things that added up I guess. I did get all my cutting done, and that was a good part of the day. But in between cutting there were several messages that weren’t what I called positive. I can see my computer screen from where I cut, and I check in on messages every on...

Apartment Projects #10: Not Fine Woodworking...

09-16-2010 01:47 PM by littlecope | 9 comments »

With my Girlfriend Debbie moving in recently, I’ve been spending a lot of time trying to find room for all of our collective stuff… With space at a premium, Yesterday I went ahead with an idea I’ve had for years… It took about twenty minutes…But I have to back-track a little…I made a canoe stand about ten years ago. It consisted of two posts that I made, by screwing together a couple of 2 X 3’s, and attaching some plywood “feet” to hold th...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #30: Back to Basics

09-16-2010 06:45 AM by degoose | 6 comments »

Taking it back to the basics… how the machine works and what type of power tools can be used on the TWC.. Let us look to Stuart Lees from Stu’s Shed. Stu … while still a hobbyist woodworker… has an engineering background ..and thus an understanding of how the TWC works and how it could be used by woodworkers as is shown by the videos he has made since he received his first TWC. Now over the last few weeks Stu has posted a few videos of the basics of the Torque Wo...

Incra Offset Router Table #2: Sketchup Pics

09-16-2010 05:37 AM by SWM | 0 comments »

I should have posted this first, but like most of my projects, I got a little ahead of myself. This was my first experience using SketchUp. I watched a few videos on a couple dozen times and now I have a router table. It’s not perfect, but I was able to get a cutlist with the cutlist plugin, so I was satisfied for now.

poor baby

09-16-2010 04:47 AM by learnin2do | 7 comments »

I have this new guard for my shop and all my precious reclaimed and salvaged wood. My dogs killed the rest of his family when the babies were hardly a handful. This guy started showing up a few weeks later looking all sad. He keeps looming at the dogs, and us, hauntingly, as though we have the power to resurrect his mama. It is making me crazy. He looks so pitiful. -every night, sitting in a tree, or on the fence, with two pitbulls barking a few feet blow him him like crazy. -mayb...
