I am moving into a new house and I hate the process. The worst parts are lack of internet access and of course, my enter shop is in boxes. I miss putting wood to blade already. But I am excited to set up the new shop. I brought all my garage cabinets from the old place. The best part is that I am going from a 1 car garage with lousy electrical to a two car, extra deep garage with outlets all over the place. There is even a 220 outlet. I may just have to rewire my table saw.
There are some walls going up! But as you can see the weather hasn’t been very cooperative.
I don’t know how many folks are aware of our little audio podcast, Wood Talk Online, but I figured I would post it here at Lumberjocks once in a while. The show usually contains industry news, voicemails, sweet deals, community happenings, and a whole lot of “shop talk”. We also do the show live and have a bustling chat room that tends to distract us now and then. :) Check it out! Download MP3 Questions or Comments?

Hi fellow lumberjocks. I figured I would give a little background since I am new to the site. I have always enjoyed designing and building things that make my life easier/better/more fun. Years ago I tried my hand at woodworking, but, without any decent tools I was quickly disappointed when my project came out looking worse than the scraps I made it from. Fast forward to today and the woodworking bug has bitten me again. Fortunately I plan on doing it right this time. I have been setting u...

What’s happening in the shop for February 25, 2010. Betz’s bed is in final assembly, I will be finishing up Ridenhour’s murphy bed and bookcase today. I’ll also start on Griffith’s table and uppers as soon as the drawer ironing board gets here. Also starting a big project for Gates. Very busy day! For missed video and building pictures see my Current Projects link at wwbeds.com or poggyskids.com. Watch us live:
All the pieces for both units were cut out at the same time, so there was another waiting to be assembled. I spent some time today on that. Here it is next to the first one, waiting to be filled up: I’ll have to find a new place to hang my roller stand, but that’s okay, as I’ve only been able to hang one of the two here on its over-the-rafters hooks. Right now it’s immediately in front of the new shelving: I learned something interesting about French clea...
Recently I was requested to produce a couple of small tables for our church, not tables you would sit at but small tables to add a vase of flowers to elevate them of the ground 200mm high. This did create a problem because of the size of the various pieces I would require to produce in the construction. I needed to keep Safety as a high priority. The centre column was made up from six pieces of material at an angle of 60 degrees to form a hexagon. The three legs were produced from ma...
I’m never going to buy a new tool again. Yeah right, but I can try not too. They are so expensive. If you have been following my recent posts I’m getting back into the craft after a long layoff. This series is devoted to the fine are of picking up used tools on the cheap. Recently I discovered ( or re-discovered ) the pawn shop. OMG !!!!!!! the selection of tools is incredible. I recently picked up a Porter Cable 1 3/4 Hp router kit with plunge and standard base. Grea...
