Work Bench project 1 #1: Work Table

01-16-2010 02:44 AM by scotta | 6 comments »

So I’m new to the physical wood working scene other than a couple of classes I took when I was younger. I’ve done tons of research and learned many techniques I think I can perform. I’m a web/graphic designer so I’m a wiz with google sketchup and have created many designs for future projects. I’m slowly building up my tool collection and have decided to build my own work table for various assembly and bench top tool use out of plywood. I’m know it wont ...

Extremely Average #14: Gnashing Teeth

01-16-2010 01:52 AM by Ecocandle | 11 comments »

Today I drove across Martelle, to the office of post, where I again stared into a cubbyhole filled with emptiness. No DVDs and books for me, in the ‘Soup Nazi’ voice, ran through my head. After coming home, through rush hour traffic, I sat in my comfy green computer chair, defeated. I know from my days of working in the marketing department at GEICO that the travel time for a piece of mail, from anywhere city, in the continental U.S., to the hamlet of someplace, takes no longer than 6 ...

NAMES is the North American Model Engineering Society and they are having their 21st Annual Exposition on April 24-25, 2010 at the Southgate Civic Center in Southgate, MI “It is planned for 30,000 square feet of exhibit space – plenty of space for all of those larger models that you’ve wanted to bring. As always, we’ll have compressed air available so you can run steam engines. Gasoline powered engines and propane powered exhibits are also welcome.” I don&...

Alaska Jim's Comments of the Day #8: Maui - Day 8 - More photos and phun

01-16-2010 12:36 AM by Jim Bertelson | 24 comments »

We have been lolling around, occasionally venturing out to various parts of Maui. Been trying to maintain the LJ book list, which I have, but can’t upload it for technical reasons. May have a work around, we’ll see. So since you asked for more pictures, here they are. Remember, this is just relaxation time for us here, we don’t try to do much exciting. Trying to get some kind of picture of a whale for Dennis’s daughter in Denmark, but not much luck. Whales yes, but ...

Carved Coffee Table II #1: Making the apron profile

01-16-2010 12:08 AM by Alan Young | 1 comment »

I am building a coffee table that is based on a piece I built in 2007. The first table has a solid top made from Sapelle and a base where the apron and legs were from Mahogany. The new table will have the same general shape-in all sections-top, apron and legs. The changes will include, walnut for the legs and apron, and a top that is veneered with inlayed designs. The carving’s on the legs and aprons will be different too. I began taking pictures of this second table when I was ...

A journey into the workshop. #39: Lumberjocks Workshop page updated.

01-15-2010 10:33 PM by dbhost | 2 comments »

For those shop voyeurs that like seeing updates on the shop entries, mine has been updated to reflect the current configuration (I still need better pics…). The shop isn’t where I want it yet, but it IS functional, and coming along nicely. I fear this will be a perpetual project…

A blog about a blog

01-15-2010 08:56 PM by kennethw | 2 comments »

Hi folks. I’ve taken the plunge and started my own blog. It’s mostly about my process of learning, working with hand tools and coming up with creative solutions to get around not having a shop! I’ll definitely still be hanging out with you LumberJocks as much as possible, I just have my own sandbox to play in as well. Please check it out some time if you get a chance and have an interest. :) Thanks!

Toy Chest #1: From This to a Toy Chest

01-15-2010 08:16 PM by End_Grain | 0 comments »

My oldest daughter is pregnant with our first grand baby, a boy. The wife is excited-just a bit. So I’ve been sidetracked from the kitchen upgrade and drum sander and am now working on a toy chest. This is the wood I have to work with-reclaimed pallet pine. This is what it looks like after I get done cleaning it up. It mills down to just under a 1X3. A bit more gluing up for the panel, I think 2 extra boards per side. It cleans up real nice. All of the knots are tight. Th...
