Rolling pin hardware

2021 days ago by Rogue | 1 comment »

Great comments on the rolling pins fellas. You are right about the lags. They are abit unsightly. Reseacing them and adding a plug would be a good solution, but it would also take more time. Don’t get me wrong I love to sink endless hours into my work like the rest of you but these are sora my mass produced items I make alot of them at a time and I need to keep what I have to charge for them low. I also like that the hardeare is accessible easy without any fuss for deep cleaning onc...

Pulse Update: All Items Or Unread Items

2021 days ago by Martin Sojka | 15 comments »

I’ve just added another useful feature to the Pulse based on your feedback to the recent major Pulse upgrade. I admit that showing only unread items by default was not ideal (I’m using Pulse in that mode for a long time you know…). So I decided to add the following two buttons – ALL ITEMS | UNREAD ITEMS: ALL ITEMS option shows unread items as well as all of the items that you’ve read – the gray lines – and is a default one. You can keep using i...

Rocking Chair Summer Camp with Bill Kappel #7: Long overdue chair update

2021 days ago by motthunter | 12 comments »

Sorry for the delay. But I have been crazy resetting the shop, installing my new dust collector, and getting my heat straightened out. I had a bit of a tragedy in my chair as you can see in this pic. The seat split. I am trying to figure out the best repair solution so that it is strong and the crack does not continue. Anyhow, the following photos show my rough sculpting and joinery. I still have at least 40 hours of work left as I need to finish the back slats and chair back, ...

Gearing Up #1: Return to and Menards Cutting Policy

2021 days ago by bensaw | 8 comments »

I finally got my 7 1/4 freud blade shipped out for replacement to today. They provided me with a return shipped label prepaid which makes me happy. Unhappy part is that it will probably be another week at least before I see a replacement…couldn’t bring myself to pay double the price to get one at Home Depot. I just wonder why the guy placing the blade in the box couldn’t look at all 40 teeth before plopping it in there. I didn’t find the tooth in the ship...

Weekend Bench #4: Rounding 2nd

2021 days ago by dsb1829 | 2 comments »

Okay, so another 8hr day in the books. Again I am humbled by what I can get done in a day. And again I see that a better plan would have taken a lot less time to accomplish the tasks I did today. Well, the day started with some remorse over yesterdays hasty apron glue up and lumber sizing. I had intentionally left the aprons proud of the bench to flush trim. This isn’t normally a problem on a light duty bench. But for this weekend warrior bench I have to flush trim aprons that a...

Shop Skills #3: Sharpening Card Scrapers - The Lost Scene...

2021 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 27 comments »

Forgive My Insensitivity… A public Thank You is in order before I go any further. I had some great support from two individuals that are a part of LumberJocks. I relied heavily on Dave Pruett for “on call” support to figure out how to edit / process / and post my video. I need to thank Marc Spagnuolo as well. I did not continually call him like Dave, but his advice and pointers were taken to heart and helped me out as well. As with my woodworking, my achievement...

Coat Center Project Progress #1: Shop Time Part 1

2021 days ago by RockDoggy | 0 comments »

I’ve begun the shop work on my coat center project, whose (rough) design can be found here in a Google Sketchup v7 file. The goal is to allow my short kids to be able to hang their coats themselves, and also have a place to manage their library books and hats & gloves. There is also a discussion of my progress here during my first shop session on the project. I was able to make a fair amount of progress in about four hours of time, which is unusually productive for me! Enjoy...
