Tree IDs #1: Dendrology

02-21-2009 02:38 PM by Gary Fixler | 17 comments »

Hi folks! I’m new here, as of tonight, but it already occurs to me that this might be the place for an idea I’ve been toying with. I’ve done minor carpentry-like woodworking since high school (31 now), but in the last 2 years, I’ve finally been able to rent a house with a detached 1-car garage in LA. Thus began my meteoric rise to choking myself out of said garage with tools and lumber acquisitions :) Late last year, it occurred to me to wonder what the trees the wo...

Really excited to be here!

02-21-2009 01:48 PM by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

I’m going to have to get used to LJ not meaning “LiveJournal,” as it has for me these last 5 years. Interestingly, it’s the evaporation of all my friends’ comments on my other LJ that has me so excited to find this place. I think they’re past their limit on hearing about woodworking every minute they’re around me, or reading my journal. They’re all computer nerds :) How have I not found this place before?! Actually, I have. I’ve stumble...

Calling all New Jersey, PA and NY Lumberjocks

02-21-2009 12:43 PM by acanthuscarver | 5 comments »

It’s just about time to take the show on the road again. Next weekend (Feb. 27, 28 and Mar 1) I’ll be exhibiting and demonstrating at The Woodworking Shows Somerset, NJ. It should be a great time! Last year’s show was pretty heavily attended and I expect from the crowds I’ve seen at the other shows this year will be even better. So, come on out and I’ll show you how to cut some dovetails. If you attend the show, please stop by the booth and identify yourself. I&#...

Well If I told you once I told you 17,000 times. Well at least I said something 17,000 times. Dang this place is addictive. It is my drug of choice. I love ya all. Now make sawdust. I can’t I’m too busy typing. And it’s cold in the shop and I’m too cheap to turn on the heat.

Safety First #1: Show off your Safety Gear

02-21-2009 03:42 AM by KnotWright | 2 comments »

We all love to show off our projects, and our workshops, and we even show off our mishaps. How about we take time to show off our Shop Safety Gear? Snap pics of your fire extinguishers, your first aid kits, your Safety glass storage, or your hearing protection, respirators? Let’s get creative and build a Safety Center. Maybe we could make it a contest. This way EVERYONE wins by bringing more attention to our Safety Gear. I think I’ll start my Safety Center first th...

The Slowest Farm Shop #3: Mildly Frighteningly Sharp?

02-21-2009 01:33 AM by Will Mego | 7 comments »

So today I managed to pick upWhat’s this? It’s plate glass!I got it home, and a little later, after picking up some 3M-77 spray adhesive and some more sandpaper,I then got to work lapping my beat up blue marples chisel. As it turns out, the chisel has gotten WAY out of wack. Probably from my misguided attempts at lapping it in the past, but oh well, that’s why I had gotten them cheap, so I could learn without destroying something special.The pictures of the lapping and honin...

Game Cabinet #1: Design

02-21-2009 12:04 AM by JohnVV | 2 comments »

Here is a quick picture of the design for the cabinet I am currently working on. It is basically made out of 3/4 ply, with dado joinery. Found this design in several different books, but they just used butt joints. One thing I still haven’t decided is how much screwing I should do (on the shelves guys!), and how to cover them up. I am also thinking about dressing up the front just a bit.

I NEED a replacement fence......Craftsman table saw

02-20-2009 06:27 PM by Al | 8 comments »

Although my saw is fine, my fence always left a lot to be desired and now it’s just awful. While seraching for a replacement I found that most fences are worth almost as much as the saw or more. As a hobbyist, I’m hoping to resolve my fence issue within reason (under $200 if possible). You have always come up with a solution so….... I will go to the well once again. Thanks, Al
