Woodworking In America 2009: Furniture Construction and Design #3: The Tools are Here

08-21-2009 06:40 PM by kshipp | 4 comments »

I got the tools today so I thought I would show you guys what I got. First you can try to guess the hidden objects. They are shown in their new protective coverings for storage as I am currently workshopless. And if that wasn’t a word before then I just created it. They are the Lee Valley / Veritas Low Angle Jack Plane and the Lie-Nielsen Low Angle Block Plane in Bronze. I actually got the Lie-Nielsen plane at Woodcraft a few weeks before the conference but I haven’t...

Woodworking In America 2009: Furniture Construction and Design #2: My Lazy Coverage of the Event

08-21-2009 06:17 PM by kshipp | 1 comment »

I got most of my order in the mail today from Lee Valley. That reminded me that I haven’t written anything about the actual sessions at the conference yet but I promise I will get to that. As you could expect: Woodworking Magazine and Popular Woodworking Magazine has covered some of the conference on their blog. I put links here for you to look over until I get my impressions up here. WIA: Touchdown WIA: New Tools WIA: The Hand and the Machine WIA: New Smoother from Kunz ...

random #25: Internet intrigue! What have I wrought?

08-21-2009 03:19 AM by Gary Fixler | 13 comments »

What a day I’m having! Okay, so September of last year I was gearing up to buy a band saw. I liked the Craftsman 18” Wood/Metal deal for $1300 (and eventually got that one). Above the picture on the saw’s page were clickable, hierarchical categories, something like “Power Tools > Saws > Band Saws.” You could click on each to go to broader categories – pretty standard. I noticed in the address bar that these category names were echoed in the URL as variab...

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...

Freak Accident

08-21-2009 01:23 AM by lightweightladylefty | 16 comments »

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...

The search for new equipment! #2: Delta Tenoning Jig 34-184 at Lowes!

08-20-2009 07:20 PM by Dustin Ward (aka Tearen) | 11 comments »

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 searched for a site like this for a long time

08-20-2009 06:56 PM by gene | 10 comments »

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. God bless!

Desk rebuild #3: Starting to take a new shape

08-20-2009 05:50 AM by Ben | 4 comments »

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...
