A New Start

06-13-2010 08:03 PM by Seer | 4 comments »

We have finally gotten our new website off the ground. I stil;l have a lot of work keeping it going but I find it to be fun. When we get to add new projects we find it fullfilling to be able to create something we feel someone else will enjoy over the years. My wife got me into doing woodworking 3 years ago with the purchase of a second hand scrollsaw which I promptly wore out and upgraded me on my birthday where I started making my wooden spoons and kitchen tools. One year later I got my...

Sketchup 3D Tool Models #1: Sketchup Tool Models

06-13-2010 06:09 PM by WoodScrap | 8 comments »

I’m sure I am just missing the posts on this subject but thought maybe somone could sedn me in the right direction. I am buying a new house which has enough room on the lot to build a stand alone shop (good planning, huh?) if any money is left over from the house. I want to start designing the shop and although I am an experienced CAD user I am new to Sketchup and would like to save myself some time by using prebuilt models of standard woodworking tools. Can anyone point me to sketchu...

Who's that knocking at my door ?

06-13-2010 04:14 PM by NBeener | 10 comments »

Visited a friend, in New England. He lives in a 100+ year old building. The original panel doors had cardboard for the panels. Figuring this out, somebody punched in his panel, unlocked the door, and stole a few things. He, and their HOA, could find nobody who sold the doors that matched the original design—a requirement of the building. So my friend hired a rather local custom woodworker to MAKE him a new door. As a LumberJock, I surely appreciated it. Thought y’...

Stanley No. 45 Combination Plane

06-13-2010 02:49 PM by michaelray | 5 comments »

From Sawdust I love this plane. Picked this up online not long ago and I have had the chance to test it out. Works really well and is very well taken care of for being over 100 years old. I think it dates to around 1895 if I’m not mistaken. The box that it came in is made of chestnut and is still in pretty good shape too. The plane came with a couple of extra hollow/round attachments for the bottom along with the cutters. Haven’t tried them out yet though. From Sawdust Fro...

Finally.....My Boy Sleeps In His Crib

06-13-2010 02:49 PM by MOJOE | 6 comments »

Well, 2 nights ago, my son Noah finally started sleeping well enough that we didn’t have to take turns watching him throughout the night. He has been having some belly issues, but it appears they are behind us. The wife and I decided to put him in his crib. I must say, I just get warm and fuzzy when I see him sleeping in the crib that I made. Kinda goofy I guess, but it just makes me feel proud, I really think the project came together well, and am really happy to see it being used....

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #11: New Days Bring New Ideas

06-13-2010 01:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts. – Eleanor Roosevelt. I read this quote and thought about it for a couple of minutes. It is short and to the point, but full of hope and a sense of adventure. The words are few, but very powerful. My day yesterday didn’t turn out so badly after all. I think it could have easily gone south, but all in all it was a good day. I learned a lot, got to reflect on some things, and also had an inspiration for another project. So ...

Table saw island #5: Power tool racks

06-13-2010 09:22 AM by 559dustdesigns | 6 comments »

I was able to make some more progress today. After receiving most of the hardware needed for this table saw island, the tool racks are sliding. I also finished the wiring, so the saw doesn’t require an extension cord and the handy electrical on the ends of the bench now in use. I had to add some more wiring to supply voltage to the tool chargers on the power tool racks. You may notice the tee track is installed across the top of the bench, This track will be used to secure the sliding a...

Sketchup Tutorials #1: Through Dovetails

06-13-2010 08:51 AM by David Kirtley | 7 comments »

Just a quick tutorial on how to draw through dovetails in Sketchup. In this one, I would not even want to try pins first. Tails first all the way in Sketchup. This is the first time I used Photobucket and the images are a bit odd sized to match the forum. I will fix them as I get stuff figured out. Ok, you want to make a piece the length and width of your stock: Take the end where you want to make the dovetails and right click to get the menu and select divide. You will want to m...

Making Changes (man in the mirror)

06-13-2010 05:25 AM by sawblade1 | 3 comments »

Good evening Lumberjocks, This week has been a slow one for me with operation X hitting a few snags (financially mainly) I didn’t have much to do but sit in my shop and mope about not going any further, and after a very discouraging week at work due to my supervisor getting an attitude with me because I asked for help because my knee was hurting and my partner called off he scolded me stating bluntly he did not care and I wasn’t getting any help and that I needed to get a car a...
