random #21: some ramps for my truck, almost

06-26-2009 11:06 AM by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

To save my back the next time I luck into some huge logs, I found and purchased some Highland Ramparts brackets from Pep Boys, while there replacing my new truck’s dead battery. I’ve seen gardeners in the area loading and unloading rider lawnmowers and everything else with these things, so me and a log on a hand truck should be fine, despite my ample size. I also picked up the required 2×8s, each 8’ long. Unfortunately, measuring my truck’s unfolded tailgate he...

Step-back Cupboard Build #13: Face frame attached

06-26-2009 05:00 AM by rwyoung | 0 comments »

All I had on the docket for tonight was to get the upper face frame glued on and the necessary cleanup. Done. Nothing more complicated than doing a dry fit to prep the clamps and glue that puppy down. The clamps I’m using have heads sized so that a 2×4 can be used to lift workpieces and clear the head of the clamp. Notice the glue run near the center of the side. Not a big deal, I caught as much as possible. The rest gets scraped and sanded when the clamps are off. Easy pe...

Wood IDs #15: African Blackwood and conservation

06-26-2009 03:12 AM by Gary Fixler | 4 comments »

I picked up another box of 20 exotic wood turning blanks from Rockler. It’s been on a big sale for a long while now, and I had free shipping going, too. I have an idea for possibly turning it into some saleable items, and running the numbers, it was a very good deal. One of the woods it includes, of which I have now 4 1.5”×1.5”×12” pieces is African Blackwood. The tree, – Dalbergia melanoxylon, found primarily in Tanzania and Mozambique, though native to, and ...

David's [aka Patron] double version of the jig? #4: First attempt at the double curve LL

06-26-2009 02:07 AM by degoose | 22 comments »

For my first practice attempt at the double curve LL I used New Guinea Rosewood. I didn’t want to waste any MDF or Ply on a test cut!As you can see from the pics there is a little adjustment needed in the fence positioning, so a little glue and sawdust. All in all it is kinda OK but I am not 100% happy., but that is just me.,....Eddy if you are reading this.. the Tumbling blocks in endgrain in the background are 1 from inch and a half stock and 2 from inch stock they look ok just small...

Upper Deck #1: Ledger

06-26-2009 01:22 AM by Zuki | 11 comments »

During the summer months most of my woodworking are projects for outside . . . like my recent greenhouse project. This project is a deck on the rear of our house. You can see from the pic it is up pretty high (11ft of the ground) and it is over the stairwell going into the basement (another 8ft). The first step is to remove the siding. A definite must is a siding removal tool. Cost $6 and allows you to unhook the siding for removal. Here I have all the siding removed and you...

Lumber Gloat!!

06-25-2009 06:17 AM by matt garcia | 20 comments »

Hello fellow Lumberjocks! It’s time for another installment of, a great phrase I picked up from Charles Jackson III (B.K.A. Beginningwoodworker), “Wood Gloat”!! I subscribe to our local Rockler email offers. Last month Rockler was offering curly maple for $5.99 a b/f. I called the day after the email came out, and they were 75% sold out! I rushed over there that afternoon, and found 30 b/f I couldn’t live without!! Those are 10’ sticks ladies and ...
