Help with an outdoor wood rack for firewood

2077 days ago by printman | 5 comments »

Hello all, I was wondering if anyone out there might have a good fire wood storage rack idea they want to share. I have a small firepit in my back yard and would like to have something maybe 6 feet long at the most just to store wood. I was also thinking if I come up with a neat project I might make a few for my neighbors too. Thanks in advance for your help and support.

Lee Valley purchases

2077 days ago by GMoney | 5 comments »

I called the contact us number on Lee Valley’s website to ask about any promotions such as free shipping. Immediately I was told free shipping was available now and would I like to place an order? I had been watching the website to see if that or any other promotion would be offered now near the hoildays. Just goes to show that it pays to ask and to have your order ready to go. Mine is on it’s way freight-free! I posted here to reach other lumberjocks who may want the same thin...

The Tool Gathering Odessy #11: Where Was THIS When I Needed It?

2077 days ago by Tomcat1066 | 5 comments »

Some time back, I was finally able to pick up a Disston dovetail saw. If I remember correctly, these are rare animals out in the wild to some extent, and I paid more than I really wanted to. Again, this was a while back so I may be remembering this wrong. I do remember it being a pain in the butt trying to snag one off eBay. This difficulty of finding decent vintage saws at reasonable prices, coupled with the cost of new dovetail saws that are worth a flip, have been one of the driving ...

Starting on the Trim Work, Gas Heater, Ceiling Fan

2078 days ago by FJPetruso | 7 comments »

I’ve started puting in the trim work. And after giving a bit of thought to what kind of trim.., I decided to keep it simple & cheap. If I would get too elaborate with the trim I would find myself cleaning sawdust out of many nooks & crannies. So I chose plain ole 1”X4” lumber & will just paint it white. The front & rear windows are trimmed out. I installed the 30,000 btu gas heater & it works like a champ. And since the inspector had me pu...

"New" Table Saw #4: Zero Clearance Insert

2078 days ago by Jon Parker | 2 comments »

Kind of slow going here as I design the Table Saw cabinet just the way I want it. I’ve been trying to find a zero clearance insert for the table saw, but have been unsuccessful since it’s so old and Craftsman has since changed their inserts. I finally found one online, but it was $20 + shipping and handling. I remember seeing an episode of New Yankee Workshop (one of my favorites) that showed making a zero clearance insert from wood and a flush router bit. So instead I dro...
