Woodworking in America 2008 #5: WIA Wrap-up

2077 days ago by Texasgaloot | 3 comments »

I’ve had a couple of days now to rest up, process all that information, and try and heal from the sinus infection I picked up (when I lived in Kentucky, the sinus infection was how I was able to tell the seasons were changing!) I’ve been reflecting on the entire event, trying to figure out how I wanted to condense this huge volume of knowledge and impressions down into one blog, and it is not easy. Here are a few highlights of “Mack Goes to Berea:” 1. Woodworkers ...

Hand Planes #6: Working on planes

2077 days ago by dsb1829 | 8 comments »

Been fussing over some hand planes in the garage. Okay, so what’s new there? Evapo-rustYep, that’s right Evapo-rustThis stuff is cool. Dissolves/converts rust in a non-toxic and non-corrosive chemical reaction. It is rare to come in contact with a cleaning solvent that actually works yet is not something that you have to worry about getting on your skin. Here is an example… before: after:About 5 minutes with a wire brush and the dark oxide comes right off leavin...

Pen Turners' Swap - Round 3 #5: It's your 'turn', Trifern!

2077 days ago by itsme_timd | 11 comments »

I’m not sure if everyone’s aware of this or not, but just wanted you all to know that I don’t get paid for coming up with these catchy titles – nor do I have a team of writers turning out these masterpieces. It’s all me and it’s all free… just so you know. :-) The map… Any-how… the box is on it’s way to visit Trifern in IL. Looks like some fantastic stuff heading his way. No doubt he’ll make good use of it! The bo...

Woodworking in America 2008 #1: Dovetailing: Pins vs. Tails with Klausz and Underhill

2077 days ago by Al Navas | 1 comment »

From my blog: I have posted three entries, each with video, of the Dovetailing: Pins vs. Tails session with Frank Klausz and Roy Underhill. I kept the editing to a minimum, to give the viewer a sense of “being there”. You will hear a little background noise, and the lighting might be a little on the dark side. But it reflects in a good way the way it was. I had an opportunity to attend the 2008 Woodworking in America conference in Berea, KY. It was a terrific event, attended...

New Sawstop Demo

2077 days ago by lazyfiremaninTN | 10 comments »

I was watching one of my new favorite tv shows tonight, Time Warp, on the Discovery Channel. They had the inventor of the Saw Stop system on showing off the system. At the end of the segment, he ACTUALLY put HIS finger into the blade. OMG….made my heart stop, but the system worked as designed.

This week in urban logging #11: Fruits of my labor

2077 days ago by Daren Nelson | 12 comments »

I showed a pile of walnut logs in my last blog. Now I will show the pile of lumber that came from it. This is the FAS pile. I have another pile that is lower grade. There is 750 bft of just gorgeous lumber here, almost “perfect”. 8”-12” wide and 8’-10’ long boards. I grade sawed all this out. I am not exaggerating when I say if I cut all the “defect” (any small knots or sapwood) out of this whole pile it would all fit in a 5 gallon bucket !!

Exotic Wood

2077 days ago by sandhill | 20 comments »

While in transit back to Florida from NY I stopped in Maryland at an Exotic Lumber supplier and I thought I would share my treasured find. I bought some Purple Heart and Walnut for a few gift projects but while searching through other stacks of lumber I came upon 3 boards I found absolutely stunning! I don’t have a specific use for them but could not pass up the chance to buy them. Here is a photo of what I found ”Quilted Makore” I can’t seem to settle on a project ...

Ponderings #19: Where to start back

2078 days ago by Tomcat1066 | 7 comments »

So, I find myself here contemplating how to get back working on wood. I’ve spent so long painting and patching drywall at this point that I frankly am having to start from scratch to some extent. So, I figured I’d ramble on a bit here because I know how great the advice has always been here. With Christmas coming up, I had thought of building a tool tote for my son, to go along with a few tools I’m buying for him to work on his own projects. I still want to build my si...

A new shop in the making #21: Putting in a dust collection system

2078 days ago by Bob #2 | 15 comments »

As my odyssey continues, I have reached the point with the shop where I can install the dust collection conduit and hook it up to my new home built 2 hp cyclone.The cyclone is styled after information obtained from the Bill Pentz website and although not an exact duplicate seems to work quite well.From new shop As you can see from the picture I split the system into two zones. One zone runs for approximately 22 feet using this six-inch spiral lock tubings for the mains four-inch drops to m...
