Time sure does fly when you are having fun. I have now been a member of LumberJocks for just over 2 years. I am still building my office suite and look forward to being able to post all the pieces here this year. This site is a huge help and I am glad to have found it and gotten to know some of the people here. I have been able to not only add to my shop and home but to my knowledge base thanks to members posts and knowledge sharing. Thanks everyone for a great 2 years. Looking forward to man...
The accident happened when I was nearly finished with a valance to hang over the patio doors and was drilling small holes through which I was threading gold cord. My old-age vision is rather poor so I had taken off my glasses and gotten my face really close to be able to see where I wanted to drill the hole. (Yes, I do know the importance of safety glasses, but what good are they if you can’t see what you’re doing?) Because I was drilling through fabric as well as poplar, I was being caref...
In this video trim the edges for the 1×1s and I sand the top part I know that this is a short episode but I wanted to show this content and it would be too long of a video for youtube if I made it 1 episode
Just a heads up to anyone near a Lowes. I stopped in my local Lowes during my lunch hour today just to look at all the lovely power tools. While walking down one of the isles that contain secondary equipment I noticed a clearance tag on some Delta Branded items. Usually these don’t catch my eye, but then I noticed the tag was for a Tenoning Jig. So, got down on my knee to look on the lower shelf. There is was… a single, unopened, Delta 34-184. This is the same Jig th...
I ran across this site and had to share with my friends here at LJ’s. You may find a used piece of equipment or tool that you have been wanting here. It is public government surplus auction site that can be broken down by each state. Check on your state and then click browse, It will compile a list of the auctions going on in your state and local government. Hope this helps someone looking for that special bargain. http://www.publicsurplus.com/sms/browse/home God bless!
I pushed through on my last vacation days and got the base of the desk re-assembled. I assembled all but the back strip with pocket screws. It is pretty strong right now, but I think I will back it up with some corner braces just to keep it from pulling apart over the years. The original desk had one drawer, so you can see one mahogany drawer slide and one poplar. I am a little nervous that the front of the desk will not have enough strength, especially with people pushing off of it t...
A fella gave me a bunch of mahogany today. Most of it was 2×2, 2×3, and 2×6 around 4 to 6 feet long. But the real goody was about 10’ of 6” Chacago Bar Rail. All Honduran Mahogany.
Here’s where I go lumber shopping…The coolest thing is that it is all free! Just some extra time to sift and sort. Sorry for the blurriness, a combination of glare and good old muggy Georgia weather after a thunderstorm. Here’s a couple pictures of the wood I’ve found. An oddball piece of Curly maple and a piece of Walnut. Not perfect, but I think I’ll be able to come up with some idea for them. Ok, So I’ve found these nice pieces of poplar an...

I found a nice 5’ piece of red oak at Home Depot that was a bit odd in hue, having more depth to its grain than what I usually see there. I had visions of turning some square plates, so I snagged it: I really slacked off on pics of this turning. This is the only one: In it, I’ve cut the end from the plank to square it up and remove the chipped edges. Then I cut 2 pieces off as long as the plank was wide (7-1/4”). Then I cut some squares of birch from a leng...
