Another day, another nickle #22: Snake River Ranch

04-14-2010 05:03 AM by Thos. Angle | 18 comments »

Today we moved to Jackson Hole. To Snake River Ranch to be exact. I’m sitting here at my new laptop and the first bookmark I put in was LJ. We are residing in the cook house/dining hall. I don’t think I’ve ever lived in a more scenic location. The Tetons on one side and the Snake River on the other. It will be even prettier when the snow is gone. We got into quite a snow storm on our way in today and more coming down now. We have wireless here so I’ll be on here bother...

Building my dream shop #1: Getting started

04-14-2010 05:02 AM by rep | 11 comments »

This will be my first attempt at a blog. I will try to document the building of my dream shop and the property improvements that go along with it. Not quite sure how this works, but I will jump in and see how it goes. From the beginningAbout a year ago, my wife and I found a 54+ wooded acre parcel with a creek in the back that seemed to be the place we could develop as we wished, with plenty of room and privacy. There was field on the ridge that we decided to plant an orchard of pec...

Dear Lumberjocks, I discovered a lumber yard which I didn’t know about, near Iowa City, and they have all sorts of great lumber from around the globe. Finding a new lumber yard is like getting a catalogue. It is great. Brian

Finish carpentry in new house

04-14-2010 03:39 AM by mirkwood | 3 comments »

I have been involved in the lengthy process of doing the finish carpentry of a new house we had built in the vacation land of Minnesota. It was built on land we purchased many years ago and have now retired to. The most challenging part up until now has been the windows. There are twenty three in all and I am finishing them in the old craftsman , arts and crafts style of the early 20th century. So far I have completed 15 of the 23 windows and have gained a great deal of experience in the proc...

Chicken Coop #2: Finished

04-14-2010 03:00 AM by ardbeg | 4 comments »

Well, there may be one or two minor things to do, but this will probably be it for the blog. As I mentioned in #1 this is my first coop and I did the plans myself. All in all it was a fun project and tested my design skills with some of the angles and details. There is one feature in particular that I am rather happy with; I rabetted the edges of the trim around the chicken door and used them as a pathway for the door to slide open vertically. It is attached via para cord on either sid...

Teardrop Camper Rebuild #1: Gutted, flooring, and beginning cabinets

04-14-2010 02:59 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 16 comments »

I’ve begun. This build could probably work in the sister site, Home refurbers but it’s a trailer and most of it is wood with some cabinetry so here it is. Besides it’s what I’m doing now. The wife and I will be using it to do a complete loop of the US on the cheap, beginning in late August with no time limit for return. We’ll hit the federal and state campsites and see America’s wonders. Awhile back I blogged about the acquisition of a “Little Guy ...

Wood Gloat

04-13-2010 11:00 PM by Hacksaw007 | 11 comments »

Thought that since I read all of the wood gloats in here and wish it would happen to me. Well I got a nice suprize yesterday. A fellow woodworked who is not a Lumberjock’s guy (yet) contacted me to buy some laminated wood that we have from our making rifle stocks. After he purshased his wood, he went to his truck and brought out a nice bundle of 1 inch square, 5 foot long Rosewood. All dry and old. He at one time bought out a large amound of this wood and after I shared with him ab...

1972 Craftsman project, Opinions Welcome #6: A bit more work done

04-13-2010 10:04 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

Hello all: My last entry indicated I needed a way to lock the casters in place on my TS workstation cart for rolling around. I picked up a couple of storm ties for framing at the local lumber store and put a bit bend in them to fit the cart. I made one leg shorter. I attached the storm tie to the frame, then drilled through it and the caster support at the same time, put in a shallow counter bore, and put a T nut into that. Thread a bolt into the T nut, and it should be good ...
