Some general observations about Lumberjocks...

10-20-2009 08:09 PM by dbhost | 35 comments »

I’ve gone through most of the shop tour pages as I love seeing these things, and along with the project pages, I use them to get ideas for projects, layouts etc… A good number of things intrigued me about this site overall, and I just wanted to share them with you. #1. It would appear the two most common table saws owned by LJ members that bother to post their shops, are Ridgid TS3650/TS3660s, and Delta Unisaws. #2. DeWalt DW735 planers are insanely popular, next seems to...

Rough Sawn Walnut #2: The price we pay

10-20-2009 07:41 PM by ChunkyC | 3 comments »

Well I was hoping to start going through the pile and start sorting and cleaning it up. But Sunday after I unloaded the truck, I started to cough a little, nothing big or anything to get concerned with. I went to work Monday, felt fine until about 1:00. Then I was down and out. I had to stick around work ‘till 4 because I have a staff meeting. I stoped by the store and picked up some cold meds and went to bed. I slept until 9:00 am. That’s 16 hours of down time! I haven...

Dust and crumbs

10-20-2009 07:07 PM by batmanw2002 | 6 comments »

My dust collector is filling up and was wondering what others do with all the dust and crumbs collected. Was thinking about just spreading it around in the yard. Is there any practical use for it?

Study Book Shelves #2: Disappointment

10-20-2009 03:50 PM by Paul | 2 comments »

I’ll post a “distant” pic but no close-ups on this one. Really disappointed in how it’s coming together as I install in the study. But, I’m going to live with it because I’m tired of sitting among a pile of books.

Revamping and Updating my Old Shop #6: Putting together a benchtop downdraft table, and learning Sketchup

10-20-2009 03:09 AM by Jim Bertelson | 10 comments »

Worked this weekend. Isn’t there a federal law against that? And got the flu as well, isn’t there a federal law against that too? I have pretty well licked the flu with magic potions. So not very productive in the shop. Benchtop downdraft table, ala Rockler: Designed for Rockler’s downdraft table top sections, with their plans, except I am not using their downdraft table top sections. Will try a new finish that grips well. We’ll see if it holds up to abuse, and b...

Workity, health, and wood

10-19-2009 08:54 PM by Lisa Chan | 2 comments »

Just taking a small break from the work day. Today, I am researching the shape and form of Russian Spindles. I made a cursory spindle last night. I had never spun with a supported spindle that didn’t have a hook at the top. It was frustrating and my spindle didn’t seem to get much twist going… then I realized that perhaps it had something to do with the shape itself. Looked into it and discovered I left quite a bit of extra wood on that thing. Examining the spindles...

Bowed keyboard- Streichklavier #7: at the fall music festival in Ironton MO

10-19-2009 07:38 PM by JonJ | 3 comments »

I didn’t get completely done, but took it to the festival anyway. Friday night I had it working pretty good about midnight, but as I was getting ready to put it away for the night- I heard a popping noise every time the belt made a full circle. I knew what that meant… time for a new belt. I cut the old one off and spliced a new one on. I use gorilla glue and clamp the splice between waxed paper. this time I used maple blocks and two clamps so I could really crank down on it. Sat m...

Kreg Pocket Hole System - Wood Plugs

10-19-2009 07:30 PM by mnorusis | 11 comments »

I recently purchased a Kreg Jig system for use in my first major project (an entry table/cabinet for the house). One major issue I have had is, after joining boards together for the table, the wooden Kerg plugs I purchased stick out of the pocket hole quite a bit. Filing and sanding these down took FOREVER (and at significant expense to my hands and arms). So I looked through the LJ forums to see if anyone had a better way to resolve this…there just had to be a better way. I stumb...
