I want to take a minute (or 2or 200) to tell you about an awesome place I found in southern Ca, Santa Ana to be exact. The name of it is Austin Hardwoods & Hardware(714) 953-4000 610 N Santiago St, Santa Ana, CA 92701. The cross streets: Between E 6th St and E Santa Ana Blvd, This is the most outrageous place to locate the elite of hardwoods. Less than 20 miles from my fathers house in so. Ca. It is an absolute must stop for me when I go down to visit my father. They have wood there th...
Ok … I might as well let you know right off the get go I am not submitting this bookcase even remotely thinking I have any chance of winning anything. I’m only looking to contribute an idea I came up with. not sure if I am following any rules or not…so you can let me know either way about that part. New here, I have already seen so many wonderful projects that have great imagination and skill that as you guys and gals get cranked up into this contest the judges will reall...
Hello to all our fellow wood workers out there, and great job for doing what you love. Even though there are times that we get frustrated with a project that we are working on, run into on problem after the other; like finding new scratches everytime you change the angle of your light, whoops dropped it again, dang I forgot to do that or where did that run come from? We stick with it because it is a part of us, we love it and with every item that we make, we leave a little piece of ourselves ...
Good Evening All, I am now the proud owner of a lathe. Can not wait to be able to post some kind of project that I make on it. BUT, first I have some other fun to deal with, the lathe is a 1970’s 12” Craftsman that i purchased off of someone on Craigslist. I tested it all out and it worked fine, however it was mounted to a very heavy table and since I have a basement shop I decided to remove it from the table before trying to get it down stairs. For beeing mounted to the same piec...
Is this llathe any good? Jet woodworking lathe, model JWL-1236, Found one with tools and 4 jaw chuck for $200.00
Would a tablesaw that can tell that your finger got caught or cut be a good investment
I managed to get the top on during the week and got it mos of it trimmed out today. I need one more small stick of poplar to finish off the edge by the bench top tools.I decided that I didn’t like the setup for the bottom piece of the dust collection for the miter saw. I took the top off and moved the hood to the top of the bench.You can see that I also have got the line ran for my compressed air.I am planning to use a small and lite coiled air hose to get the dust off that isn’t ...
So last night, I’m making a list of the jigs I need/want to make for the various things on my to-do list (contained in another blog post), and I arrive at:in order of need/intended construction:1. Router Planing Sled (don’t have a planer)2. Router Straight-Edge Jointing Jog (no Jointer either)3. Panel Cutting Jig (who doesn’t need this?)4. Cross Cut Sled (not a big deal, I have a really nice sliding compound miter saw)5. Tapering Table Saw Jig (because it’s easy)6. Raised Panel Jig (um....
Well, the plate making actually went smoother than I thought, although I did forget to drill one hole. The main reason I bought the Milwaukee was to avoid buying a lift. It provides a top access hole to raise and lower the bit… and that is the hole I forgot, DOH! DOH!
The topic of making money with woodworking related things on the internet has been a long and thoroughly discussed topic here at LJ. For some, the road to riches has been easy, but for the rest of wood dust makers, it has been hard work, filled with pitfalls, and over-excitment, and lots of disappointment. Sure, the internet “can” make any small business as publicly available as a mega corporation, and that fact alone sells books and tickets to seminars to those wanting to lea...
