I was going to wait to put anything up on this project but this might be getting put on hold due to my first commission. It is a small kitchen, my own. All 3/4” Red Oak Plywood carcases. Hickory Face Frame and Solid ends. Jatoba Edge Grain top 1 1/4” thick. It is going to get a nice small crown that stays off the cyling with accent lighting. It is also going to get a light rail on the bottom of the upper cabinets. I now have the dovetail drawers complete (poplar) and inst...
Well hello everyone. We have moved into our new home, and living alone at last. I have my own garage, where I have made me a desk where I can wood burn more pictures, I have done a few more and will postthem in a few days. I have not started back smoking yet, and it is still hard. The last one I had was on May 6, 2009, and still going. ok I’ll let you all go and will keep in touch more often. Your LJ friend, Jim
I was tempted for a long time to create a tool cabinet like I’ve seen in many books and magazines (Shopnotes’ ‘Heirloom Toolbox’ comes to mind), but wasn’t prepares for such a daunting task immediately since I am a new woodworker. I then decided that I really like my Snap-On knockoff tool cabinet, so I have considered an alternate design to hold a very specific set of tools. So specific in fact, that I plan on french-fitting every tool in every drawer aside fro...
Tring to find manual or someone that has used and maintained this type of jointer. Replacing or sharpening blades exp. The only markings is the Craftsman label in the center and SKF ball bearings.

If you see this blog and have any info. Please pass it on. ty Photo included. !From Home...
I will start by creating the scaled background for the intarsia. Using Word office 2007 I did the 6” x 8” pattern sheet that fits into the top recess of the box lid and put the oval 1/2 ” from the edges. These are the subject photos that I will use for the intarsia. The first pic is from Buffalo Jack’s ranch in NC. This is the first draft of the hand drawn pattern that I made. As you can see, there will be lots of tiny pieces that will test my scrolli...

A few months ago I bought a dial gauge ‘cos I knew it was time to replace my planer knives. I decided not to but a holder for it, but rather make one. Take one parquet floor block (see previous post) and set a pair of magnets in the bottom. .Hack up some aluminium off-cuts and assemble the whole lot with mismatched bolts.. .Don’t laugh – it works.
Several years ago my step-dad gave me a few dozen 9” X 3” floor blocks when he ripped them out of his home. They are really grungy with decades of polish, varnish, dirt, scratches (patina lol) on the upper side, and solidified bitumen on the underside and sides. During a short lull in my work last night, I decided to put a few through the bandsaw and sander to see what I had in the box. I already had an old blade in the saw for splitting tar poles (and that’s a whole di...
As all now know, I pushed the ‘meeting’ of local LumberJocks at our regional WoodWorkingShow in Sacramento last weekend. Some 25 members identified themselves and signed the ‘book’. Additionally, we were able to tell our LumberJock mesage to over a hundrd people! And in the last few days, over 100 new members have signed up. [I would like to think those of us at the Sacramento show had some part in those 100 new members,] During this process, I found several bit...
I asked everyone to give me their opinion here as to which saw to purchase, a new Griz, or a gently used Uni? Well I made arrangements with the seller to go look at the saw, and thinking I was going to like what I saw I brought along a down payment to seal the deal if I liked it. Well…...I LIKED IT! I’m telling you guys….this saw was in PERFECT condition. Not a scratch on it anywhere..the fence was tight and moved smoothly and locked up solid. The tabletop was dead flat. It ...
