Stanley Bailey #26 Jack Plane

05-11-2010 09:51 PM by Mike | 4 comments »

Got this nice plane with a broken tote for $7.50 at a flea market. Nice Patina nothing else broken. Quick fixed the tote replaced with a modified old craftsman that went through a buddy’s house fire. Am gonna find a nice piece of wood to make another sole. I AM keeping the original though as it is in great condition.

General thoughts on life and woodworking #3: The contest and an important safety lesson

05-11-2010 07:47 PM by Jack_T | 3 comments »

Well I made the May 7, 2010 deadline for the Gorilla Glue Contest, just barely. I submitted it at 11:58 p.m. I am quite pleased with myself. Not because I think the project is the greatest project ever made; but rather it was I my first woodworking project that I set a deadline to and met the deadline. Normally the woodworking that I do is in my spare time and gets done when it gets done. No deadline at all. this was fun! I also learned a very important safety tip because of this pro...

Plans or No Plans?

05-11-2010 07:28 PM by HighRockWoodworking | 8 comments »

Last month I posted an article titled Old School V. New School, I have received lots of great comments and emails from this article and really enjoyed writing it as it made me think a lot about my grandfather and father. One of the last comments mentioned the difference between computer designed furniture and cabinets as compared to woodworker designed. This is a subject that I have been interested in for some time. As a project manager for a national multi-family builder I built on a ve...

The Straightedge (video) #4: Turning Urban Lumber

05-11-2010 05:50 PM by Brian Havens | 5 comments »

I am happy to release my next Straightedge video. I am also exited that the topic this time has to do with turning. When I finally got the footage to make the funny bit at the beginning of the video, I was overjoyed to finally proceed with making a video that addresses the issue of using logs from trees cut down in urban areas. This was supposed to be an easy video to make, but it turned out to be my most difficult yet. The original title of this video was “Turning Green Wood”...

Workshop Development #3: Starting to fill up, taking up too much space with too little stuff...

05-11-2010 04:14 PM by dbhost | 6 comments »

In my last posting I ran through some of the issues and thoughts behind keeping the shop in the garage instead of adding a dedicated outbuilding. Boiled down to soup & nuts, a combination of money, space, and HOA restrictions will keep me out of a dedicated shed type workshop, but I will be adding a shed to get the remaining non workshop stuff out of the shop. (Lawn & garden, and BBQ equipment and supplies like charcoal and smoking wood) About this time, I was starting to get tract...

New Table Saw

05-11-2010 07:43 AM by Juansnapon | 5 comments »

Ok so I purchased a new table saw from Home Depot for $35. I was missing lots of parts like, one table extention(wing), blade gard, rails and rip fence. All and all it would cost about $400 to purchase the parts new. Luckly by buddy in Lancaster gave me his old rail and fence system. So I made a zero clearance insert and can’t wait to use it. So now I am starting to build a work bench for the saw and my router.

Trestle Table for Dining Room #3: Top progress

05-11-2010 05:51 AM by scopemonkey | 1 comment »

Unfortunately, the day job had me working all weekend, so I didn’t get much shop time. However, I was able to edge joint all the boards, cut the biscuit slots and glue it up. Today, my “apprentice” showed up and we were able to cut it to size, scrape the joint lines flush, and hand plane the ends flat. We then used a router and a simple jig to reference a fence off the ends to cut the tenons for the breadboards. I had one small lapse in concentration and forgot...

Extremely Average #129: Your Horoscope is ready...

05-11-2010 05:39 AM by Ecocandle | 4 comments »

Hello LJs, Many years ago, I started to write as a way to entertain my friends at GEICO. I would often compose a set of horoscopes and send them to the those with an odd since of humor. Tonight’s blog discusses my continued practice with cuts, but quickly degrades into a set of horoscopes. I hope you enjoy. Brian
