Thinking about my LumberJocks blog

08-04-2010 02:11 PM by Don Butler | 7 comments »

After finishing a design for a client which involved a graphic header for his emails, I got thinking in my normally obsessive way about other graphic heads. Then I got thinking about my own emails. Then I wanted to go one step beyond what I had just finished.So I designed an animated gif for my email header.That was sort of fun.Then I thought about other ways to use this sort of thing.Naturally, I had to go to the LJ blog.Using a header for a blog is done, not by many, but it works.So I did w...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #62: LJ's Is Just an Incredible Place

08-04-2010 01:47 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

I am getting a slow start today. It was one of those odd nights when I was just restless. It was pretty cool when I went to sleep, but I woke up at about 2:30 and it was muggy and warm. If I was under the cover I was hot and if I went on top of the covers I was too cool. Go figure. I almost called it a night at 4:30 and just got up, but I knew I would be dragging my wagon today if I did so I tried to get back to sleep. It must have worked because around six or so I was awakened by thunder...

My next box

08-04-2010 08:02 AM by Armand | 4 comments »

This will be my next project combining some of the designs I favorited here in LJ. Hopefully, all future box projects will be patterned to this. This will be an easy task for my DIY-TS and the joineries will be easy too. The next step is to find the right woods with contrasting colors to combine in the box. Took me 2 hours to accomplish this drawing in Sketchup. . I will post pics during the build.

Garage Organization By a Newbie #6: Something's Finally Built!

08-04-2010 07:25 AM by CyBorge | 4 comments »

The shelving unit is in service! I ended up using 1/2” plywood all around instead of vertical 2×4’s. I also decided not to depend on the garage walls for primary support, so it can be moved if desired, though I did screw it to a plywood strip that was pre-mounted on the wall. Even though the unit is strong enough on its own, that simple action added a ton of rigidity. Here’s what it looks like, all full of hastily loaded junk, but keep in mind the paint is actually ...

craft / handmade #4: Art for Life, buy handmade

08-04-2010 05:25 AM by scottb | 7 comments »

So, the granddaddy of all Craft Fairs hits NH this weekend, and for once we’re going without an empty wallet! (cause we planned for it, not cause we’re rolling in the dough). Buying handmade (and sharing the love) reminded me of Marks old post on the subject, and in light of the upcoming fair, and my plans to continue to have “a very homemade Christmas” I thought a revisit to the wise words of our resident Lumberjock extraordinare was timely. — Crossposted...

It failed, I can attest to that. Rejoining sanding belts

08-04-2010 05:20 AM by Karson | 17 comments »

Well I’d like to report that I was unable to repair my sanding belts. I did have a success the next day doing something else. My belts were 1” X 42” and were made with a Zerconia Grit and were 120 grit. While talking to the supplier of these belts Supergrit in Gettysburg, PA I told her that the belts were failing after putting them on the sander. The splice is failing within 1 minute. She asked when I bought them. I told here maybe 5 years ago. She stated that was p...

tv stand - nearing success or failure

08-04-2010 04:16 AM by spamfilterman | 6 comments »

getting close… finished the drawer fronts, so I’m nearly done with all cutting. Mostly left is sanding and the part I dread the most – finishing. That’ll be the make it or break it time.

Random shop notes #1: Puttering.

08-04-2010 04:07 AM by AnnaEA | 3 comments »

Puttered around in the shop space for a little while tonight. Got the chunk of wood out of my vise, and gave both vises a quick inspection and spray of wd-40. Took a few measurements for the space plan. Got rid of some junk. The plumbing stack is a 4 inch pipe, ten inches away from the rear wall, and 34 inches away from the side wall. I rolled my big tree trunk round over behind it. I think I could put the drill press stand to one side of the stack, and a shelving/storage uni...
