Owning your own business (Post #2)

09-21-2010 02:12 PM by nate22 | 1 comment »

Hello fellow lumberjocks. Thank you for all the comments and advice you guys gave me on my first post last week. To answer few of the questions that I got asked is I do build the complete bunk bed or loft bed whatever the customer ordered. Then after they are done either the customer picks up or I deliver the bed to them. I do it both ways. It just depends if the customer can pick it up or they live to far away to pick it up so then I deliver it. Besides that this last week has been kin...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #110: Cutting Today!

09-21-2010 12:07 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I got all of the important things I needed to get done yesterday. That was a good thing. I still have a list of so many things that still need to be done too though, and I am continuing on today. I am however, going to get to the scroll saw and get some cutting done. I have been working on an order for something on the side and I am determined to finish cutting it today. It’s funny how little time I get to spend ‘in the shop’ or actually physically cutting. When I st...

While not explicitly a woodworking book, Poems of Wood & Light presents their work through the eye of a woodworker with an emphasis on influences and details that help define their style. There are numerous photos that reveal previous...

Extremely Average #258: Calm and Focus

09-21-2010 05:05 AM by Ecocandle | 8 comments »

Hello All, Today the blog is back to normal (for almost everyone). There was an issue for one of my readers, who has a router which flagged my site last week during the hacking debacle. She has had trouble getting back to my site ans her router continues to block it. If any of you fine LJ folks are having troubles, it may be something similar. As for writing the blog, it was nice to not be railing against the evil hacker. I am moving on an continuing with my ikebana building. It is...

Jointer Restoration #2: Some rust removal progress! (lots of pictures)

09-21-2010 05:01 AM by HokieMojo | 10 comments »

This past weekend my wife was nice enough to forgo her own hobby to watch our daughter and I got about 8 hours in the garage to work. I’m desperate to get as much done on my jointer as possible because as you can see, it is completely stealing my wife’s parking spot (but it is shinier than the car!). I’m going to try and explain the processes I went through while providing before and after. Sorry the shots aren’t from a consistent angle. I didn’t really...

Re arranging for better workflow

09-21-2010 03:13 AM by Cato | 6 comments »

After a new fence install on the TS today I decided to move my shop equipment for a better workflow. So basically cleared out some room in the garage bay so that I could get the planer and jointer side by side so I don’t have to move them all the time, and moved the TS across the room. I think I will like this set up better even though I will have to stretch a hose from the DC over to the TS while I see if this set up will be fairly permanent. If so then will have to go over head ...

Revamping my Delta Contractor Saw #11: Laminating the Extension Table

09-21-2010 02:38 AM by Mark Colan | 7 comments »

Having successfully glued the two faces of MDF together, and trimming to the exact size, lamination went pretty easy. Which Laminate? A Shopping Tip The hardest part was choosing the laminate. I didn’t want to wait a long time for a special order to arrive. White was boring. While I have a nice red, I didn’t want it for my saw table (it’s used for the Universal Tool Stand, which I’ll blog about another time). I went to Home Depot and Lowes. Most of what th...
