The pictures I took to post my first LJ project have been lost, best I can tell. That hurt! Glad to be back.

A journey into the workshop. #70: I need help!

09-22-2010 05:12 PM by dbhost | 7 comments »

So I have been nursing a really bad flare up of a back muscle sprain now for the past 2 weeks. The doctor has me on muscle relaxers and pain killers, which is all well and good, but it doesn’t do a thing for me being able to actually, well… Function. And there are a good number of things that need to happen in my shop, and around my house. I have things in such a bad state in the shop it is frightening. I have the canoe taken down, partially. Literally the bow is off of its cei...

Offset Router Concept - I wish someone would make this

09-22-2010 02:52 PM by Siegel_KenEvil | 5 comments »

Here’s an idea I had and hopefully one of the major companies will pick up on it and make it. The picture says it all. It’s a gear box that is used with the router (either built in or added on) to allow the out-drive to be positioned off center. This would add major stability when using it free hand by keeping the center of mass and more of the plate over the work piece. When I’m viewing this on my browser, half the picture is cut off by the window. I guess you may ha...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #111: A Woodworking "Beary Tale"

09-22-2010 11:51 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

Once upon a time, there was a woodworker named Scrollgirl. She loved woodworking of all kinds and making patterns so others could join in her fun and make their own woodworking projects. One day, one of her friends on Lumberjocks asked her if she could do him a favor and make some bears for her. She was happy to do it and went right to work. She picked a beautiful hickory board to create her bears, with a warm golden color. “This would be perfect” she thought as she sanded a...

The Big Move #1: From Minneapolis to Phoenix

09-22-2010 08:38 AM by dq2 | 5 comments »

Back in June of 2005, I was offered a job in Phoenix. My wife and I flew out to find a place to live. We had 3 days. The night of the last day we finally found a house to rent. Never had been to Phoenix, but trusted our instincts. Back to Minneapolis. Two weeks to pack our 35 years of memories. (You know how much stuff you accumulate in that amount of time?) Got to Phoenix the end of June in time to start the new job. Moving van arrived 5 days later. I had only packed a few of my wood shop...

The great Lumberjocks shoe challenge #1: Introduction

09-22-2010 01:57 AM by Jordan | 72 comments »

As a former grade school and dance teacher, I think I was cut out for motivating people to recognize their strengths. And as a carver who lives on his own creations, I have had to motivate and challenge myself on a daily basis. Over the years, I have developed my skills by recreating everyday objects – in my case, shoes. Shoes and boots of every kind – skates, cowboy boots, winter boots, running shoes…and the list goes on. (in real life I also have a shoe fetish.) I carved e...

Performax 22-44 paper loading tool

09-22-2010 01:19 AM by spaids | 8 comments »

On a review of the Performax 22-44 some of the jocks were saying they don’t use the little paper changing tool. It works so well I am convinced that they must not be using it right. So this is the tool. Its only to be used on the clip on the right side. The other clip is not made the same way and your finger really is the easiest tool for that one. Now just hook the tool in the hole in the top of the clip. Pull the handle straight out. Then turn it counter cloc...
