Hi to all LumberJocks, Thank you all for the responses to the pics and your blessings to Melinda, she is the best. To answer some questions asked I am going to answer in general. Sailing on Pyramid Lake for Patton, Maybe is the best answer , the lake has quite a reputation as a killer. 8 to 10 people lost each year, however I think most are lost due to poor judgement or lack of knowledge about their boats or inability to read the weather. Big winds can blow up in a very short time and if yo...
This is a small router table I designed for a Bosch Colt trim router. I’ve used it a good bit and I believe it will be very useful for small routing jobs and for those times when I’d like to keep the Colt and my DeWalt table-mounted router set up for different cuts...The photo above shows the 17” x 25” table mounted on top supports of a knock-down shop table where it will most often be used. In the photo the table is pushed a little further back on the KD than normal...
First trip to the lumber store, and I think it went well. Got a cherry board (4/4 S3S) that was darker than the rest and pretty nice grain throughout. A tiny sliver of sapwood, but better than the other boards and doesn’t even go all the way through. I went ahead and bought the whole board—figure I’ll practice finishing on a hunk of it, and it’s always good to have some extra around.
I’ve started working my way through a book called Getting Started inWoodworking from Taunton Press. I do better at learning techniques and focusing when I can follow directions since I’m a newbie at this kind of thing. I’d like to learn to do it right the first time. I asked my dad if he had a block plane I could borrow since the first project in the book calls for one to teach a few techniques. He disappeared, reappearing and dropping a wooden block plane into my hands. ...
Since several of you folks asked I will show you the finishing up of cutting the red oak logs. The story continues from the end of the last adventure with the 7 logs cut up and ready to go. The first three whole logs went pretty uneventful a little hard to roll as they are heavy but it worked out all right. Here is the last of the whole logs with an action shot during the cut. The saw is running with me pushing it I just didn’t want to be in the photo.I use my mills hydraulics to turn t...
so my father came into this band saw through a friend and he is not a woodworker he donated it to me.it needs a new stand, and a good alignment.IT does run smooth so there is some hope. next ill tear it apart and see what is salvageable
Make a simple wood crate (with a special feature) in one day using the Kreg Jig. This one holds—important parts. It’s not quite a keg, but I just like the alliteration of the phrase “Kreg Keg Crate”.
I have finally finished the woodworking part of the drafting desk and am now ready for the finishing. I believe it turning out pretty well. I do have a funny story about putting the top together. I have said before that usually work on larger boards up at my fathers shop in North Carolina. I decided to make the top up there as it would be easier to make and my wife and I were driving up for the weekend from Atlanta anyway. I had all of the boards for the top jointed and the biscuits cu...
…have enough clamps. Every woodworker in the world knows this. Previous collection I certainly don’t have enough; not even close. The Problem Recently, in an attempt to speed up production in the shop, I’ve noticed the lack of clamps was slowing me down significantly. Even though I was initially adverse to working on more than one project at a time, it’s quickly became necessary. More clamps So this morning, after a nice relaxing b...
After good feedback from all of you and my father-in law, the design is finalized. The rack will hold 10 bottles, and will have thru tenons where the racks meet the side assemblies. Here’s the overall view, with the thru tenons. Still trying to decide if I like them at two different sizes or if I want to shoulder the back ones so they’re uniform… comments please? The view with the legs removed to show the joinery: Off to the wood store, hopefully today....
