Shop reorganization

09-11-2009 05:57 AM by Joe Watson | 3 comments »

I have been working to try getting my shop in better shape. When we bought the house we live in now I wanted a 3 car garage to use the third stall as my shop but I always had it too cluttered to have it as my shop. my dad was in town this week so he designed me a wood shelf to stack wood on which helps a lot in cleaning my space. Also got both of our cars back in the garage as well. I put the pictures up in my workshop area of my lumberjocks account.

A journey into the workshop. #3: More free mulch, broken planers, and burnt fingertips...

09-11-2009 05:41 AM by dbhost | 0 comments »

Well, I found 4 2×4x8s of cedar following me home in the bed of my truck tonight. Not a bad deal considering Lowes had them for a lower price than I am used to seeing them around here. ($5.16 each, I am used to seeing $6.89 each). So I came home with them, and decided to squeeze some planing time in before 9:00, and got the dressed boards down to at least thickness before I had to wrap it up. I have had my planer since Valentine’s day 2008, it was a gift from my wife. I love thi...

Shop Expansion #5: Almost there!

09-11-2009 02:20 AM by Les Hastings | 29 comments »

Its been along haul,,,,,,,,,,but its finally taking shape! The outside of the building was completed 3/5/09. It took from that date until the middle of May for the power company to decide what they wanted to do to get the power to the building. They finally decided to put in a pedastal in the back yard to run the power from. (at a cost of $1350.00). I had a seperate meter put in the shop so I could cut it loose from the house. I got a final on the buiding and the electrical on 6/19/09. The...

One of those days

09-11-2009 01:56 AM by Martina | 15 comments »

Ok – so as most of you know I have picked up the woodworking bug, and a big thanks to a special someone – I have recently grown with power tools! I love the tools and the more I get the more I woodwork… it has become a nightly thing that I enjoy. Until last night! So here is how the night went:I left work around 8… Stop at the local Home Depot – needed glue, and something to clean the stainer off my favorite paint brush – any suggestions? I almost bou...

Cutlist and Layout from Sketchup

09-10-2009 11:00 PM by a146coxnet | 3 comments »

After all the good things I have read about the Cutlist plugin for Sketchup I went to the link indicated in the blog at and have not had any luck downloading. The first problem is that all of my security software goes to full red. It turns out that is (according to them) classified as a consumer file sharing entity. I have turned off most of my security software, used both Firefox and IE8 and can still not get to the site to download the ...

I have just five minutes, but I’ll put some pictures of the work. The raw work is over: God willingly, tomorrow I’ll began with adjusting, sanding and finishing. What do you think of the whole? Tonight I’ll sit for a while and try to post a video. See you later, ...”sawdust-gators”.

Workbench #6: Dry fit time

09-10-2009 02:00 PM by KellyS | 4 comments »

So, I took Friday off to work on my bench some and to get away from work. I ended up having a great day and being actually productive too. I got up early just like I was going to work, early in the morning I laid all my mortises and tenons out while everyone was sleeping trying to make the most of the day. I was plenty apprehensive about cutting these mortises because this was all the scrap poplar I had left and all the other mortises I cut in the past had been abominations. I set everything ...
