Building a Deck from my SketchUp plan! #4: The Grand Finale!

2119 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 24 comments »

Well folks! It’s finally done! This took a little longer than expected, because of the weather, & things. It’s amazing that it looks just like the SketchUp plan, but I think a tad better looking though. My Son, & his family really love it. It’s almost like a new room on their house. I also learned about the new way of staining treated lumber. They don’t recommend letting it dry out for 60 to 90 days. They say that if you treat it right a...

A new shop in the making #14: Roof is on and now we are painters- not!

2119 days ago by Bob #2 | 11 comments »

As I mentioned on my last entry we got the roof on Thursday.The guy helping me got two calls from his girlfriend when up on the roof and within 6 tiles of finishing he had vanished from the property.Friday night he called , obviously concerned now about his paycheck. As it a long weekend here still have to clean up from the roofing and haul out the extra bundles of shingles in the truck for a refund I told him to come and see me Tuesday at work and I would issue him a company check. I was g...

Miter Bench and Storage #8: Time to puts some drawers in!

2120 days ago by sIKE | 5 comments »

I managed to finish milling the drawer fronts/sides/backs this past Sunday and started the assembly process. Due to the lack of clamps and only being able to get two setups at a time (and of course my day job), I finally finished up today. Here are all ten of them in all of thier glory.With darkness closing in this evening and the the wife not so happy I pressed on through and mounted the first two drawers. They need a bit of fine tuning but they are in. I can see the end of the tunnel...

My woodworing ideas and tips #1: What to do, what to do

2120 days ago by Betsy | 4 comments »

OK you guys know by now that I am having to limit my woodworking to small hand tool stuff, if that. That’s going to drive me nuts! I’ve thought that I would start doing some of my needle work with the idea of incorporating them into boxes, or other woodworking projects in the future when I’m feeling better. Tonight, being Friday, I thought it would be as good time as any to bring out the thread and material and get started. Then….. I went past my little bedroom shop an...

Hi Friends, in an effort to live up to my promise, and as requested by numerous friends at Lumberjocks, and after 2 European business trips, and a few battery charges I have restarted this blog.

I have started the blog outside LJ’s for 2 reasons; I can increase mega content faster and easier, and I also wanted to show you how simple/fast YOU can get online with little time and effort. Please enjoy the site/bl...

Woodcarvings of the Pacific Northwest

2120 days ago by TedM | 4 comments »

I have always had a fascination with Pacific Northwest woodcarvings and a couple of weeks ago I was in Vancouver and had a chance to visit a few places to see these carvings up close. I first went to Hills Native Art store which, though a retail outlet, is more like a museum or art gallery. It has hundreds of pieces of contemporary Native woodcarvings. Next I had the chance to spend an afternoon in Stanley Park where the high point of my day was a visit to Totem Park. There are eight To...

Grandpa's Box #3: Finishing Up

2120 days ago by gizmodyne | 6 comments »

Finishing the lidI wanted to get the lid to fit tight, so I cut a piece of ply to fit the box and then centered it under the lid. I used this to scribe my layout lines.I taped the corners of the box to help minimize tearout. Pushstick was used for actual operation. I busted out Wonder Boy for trimming the lid to perfection.Finished rabbet. (Note Kristin’s toes)I cut and glued more keys to secure the miters.I used a file to follow the plane this time. As long as you work away from the co...

Summer Months

2120 days ago by Olaf Gradin | 4 comments »

Northeast Georgia is already into the mid-90’s and sawdust just seems to cake onto everything now. My shop is not air-conditioned, though I do have a window fan that helps a bit. I say shop, but really I just mean “the place where my tools occupy floor space.” It’s the garage, and actually just a storage location at that. We’re planning to do some major work out there, but I’m running out of time. My wife and I are expecting a baby girl this November an...
