There are some lumberjocks that have been an inspiration to me. They have a God-given talent in the wood working field and have often been working in that craft for many years. I admire their willingness to share their knowledge with others. They seem to be down-to-earth and a true professional. I had the honor and privilege to meet one such person while on my trip to California. His name is Patron of Ojo Caliente, New Mexico. I enjoyed the opportunity to meet David in person and wanted...
So here is part two of this series on making these desks. I show you how I layout my sheet goods and yes I did solve my quandary of the pencil drawer grain. So I hope that this is entertaining and educational for all.
Hello All, After last night’s post, and then the subsequent drinking in Lisbon, I really wanted to tell the ‘rest of the story’, but alas I am suffering a bit today. So I decided it was best to get back to woodworking, which is what most people like best anyway. I have started my router table spline jig and am sending out a call for naming two more of my tools. There is a picture of the tools who need names, so if anyone would like to help, feel free to chime in. T...
These are all tools that came from my great grandfather, I’m a fourth generation woodworker and when my great grandpa died a lot of his tools got spread out between my grandpa, my dad, my uncle and me. Some pieces also “disappeared” I’m awfully curious about some of the things I ended up with. A lot of the big things like the lathe are self-explanatory but I’m very curious about the history of these items, many of them are unmarked or minimally marked so it’...
A friend from my local woodworkers club just lost 2 fingers in an accident on his table saw. He has been airlifted to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN where they will try to reattach one, and maybe both, fingers. His name is Roger. Please keep him in your prayers.
This Oak Tree has been a part of out family for years. We have numerous pictures and memories of this tree when it was alive. The tree was struck by lightning approx. two years ago. My Dad Decided to take all of the limbs off of the tree and possibly have it milled into lumber. Is there anyone out there that can give me advice on how to choose a saw mill? How much will it cost? and what are the best “cuts to get out of the tree. This tree has been around forever, it deserves to li...
I plan on building a 2×12 speaker cabinet to mate with my most current tube amplifier build. My 4th son is due tomorrow so I will be on leave for the next few weeks and I’m hoping, on my free time, to get some pictures of my progress posted and walk through the process via these blogs. Next Post: The Design
Well this entry will be pretty simple! I threw the decals on, spayed some polyurethane on and TADA! We have our boards! I sprayed the whole board inside and out with the poly. I didn’t paint the inside with the color cause I figured that was just a waste of paint. Who’s ever gonna see that anyways? Hope my friend enjoys them!
I am trying to tune my saw. The dial indicator shows .001. I set the miter to the blade but still do not get a square cut. After the cut i find that the start of the cut is sloped left as you would feed the stock. anyone got an idea? can’t figure it out.
I will also be posting the completed project in the completed projects section however I also wanted to post it here because I’ve posted most of this projects progress here and I feel it needs closure. It has a couple little things left to do to it however since the bathroom it’s going in to is so small this will be it’s completed pictures since I can’t take them in the little bathroom.
