Thanks to a fellow LJ'r (Don Husslein)

10-23-2010 05:04 PM by GaryD | 4 comments »

I knew when a fellow LJ’r Tom Francis told me about this site, that is was something special. Little did I know!! I was perusing the projects recently and saw a new workbench posted by Don Husslein. The bench was beautiful, but what really caught my eye was had attached to it an old Gripmaster vise system. I was given one of these in a box, i.e. no instructions, no pictures, no nothing but the pieces. Well, lo and behold, here is one on a work bench, and had made the remark to Do...

New Veritas plane..

10-23-2010 02:54 PM by Rick Boyett | 10 comments »

WOOHOO! My new plane came in yesterday. I’ll have a full review coming up. For now here are some pics of my new toy… (ahem) tool… (^_^) Ahh those crazy Canadians and their new-fangled recycling…. (I kid, I kid) Here we go, the un-boxing. I’ve heard Veritas called the “Apple computers of hand tools”. I think they just need to master packaging and that will be an 100% true statement. Of course my of us woodworkers really couldn’...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #142: We're Up and Running!! (Well - sort of!)

10-23-2010 12:18 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 16 comments »

Well, I did it! Last night sometime after supper, I got brave and hit the ‘publish’ button on my new site. After looking at it all week long, it seemed that it was time to really check things out. I still had to finish those few pattern packets, but I needed to try some things out like making sure the processor and ordering process worked and I didn’t want to wait because the general phone customer support isn’t available on weekends (except if you choose to purchas...

Rambling on

10-23-2010 11:35 AM by BritBoxmaker | 22 comments »

Not much in the woodwork line today. Its Sue and my 15th wedding anniversary today. This coincides with the 50th birthday party for the company I work for, Mole Valley Farmers. Their party is down in Torquay so off we go. Had an eye test, last week and I need new glasses. They’ll be calling me Pebbles before long. Not surprising with the sort of woodwork I do. Should pick them up next Thursday. There was a project posted recently of a 2 cubic inch box. My little Bess Ring box come...

Extremely Average #281: No woodworking tonight...

10-23-2010 04:39 AM by Ecocandle | 1 comment »

Hello All, I like to give an honest preview of my blog, and the realities are I just didn’t get any woodworking done today. I did write a blog piece, but it may not be of any interest to those who like my woodworking foibles. Still Optimistic http://su.pr/1GqweF I wrote a piece about Optimism on Tues, after some bad news, I am still happy. Brian

Coyote sighting in Marin!

10-23-2010 03:51 AM by Stevinmarin | 34 comments »

Well, it’s not a werewolf, but close. A coyote! Since we are approaching Halloween, I thought I would repost this video I posted on YouTube a year ago. Basically, I wanted to post a simple video showcasing some things I find beautiful this time of year in Northern California. Little did I know that I was able to capture video of a coyote across the street from my house. It was pretty cool because we rarely get a chance to see coyotes, let alone happen to have a camera handy! An...

heating my shop

10-23-2010 03:25 AM by driscie | 6 comments »

I live in New Mexico just outside of Albuquerque where the weather most of the time is awesome. In the winter the temps can go down into the high 20’s at night, my is 20×20 and well insulated. I am looking for ways to heat the shop, have considered multiple ways. I like it comfortable enough to work in a shirt. Electric is too expensive, scared of a wood stove and it does take up valuable space, ductless gas heaters do not work in a dusty environment and that leaves only duc...
