Not exactly woodworking, but close enough. #1: Spending quality time with a sander, and a paintbrush...

Before anyone asks, Photos are pending, the batteries in my cam are dead, I need to buy a pack of Lithium Ion AA batteries first! I don’t know about you guys, and gals, but I actually enjoy painting… You see my formal education is in art, and I don’t get an excuse to pick up a brush nearly often enough. I have actually recently been considering doing some painted panels, but that’s not the point of this entry, like usual I digress in strange directions… ...

Hello Everybody...Just joined

03-15-2010 04:04 PM by JimArnoldChess | 13 comments »

Hello Everybody, Just joined here and wanted to introduce myself. Just moved to the NC area recently. Spent years on boats in many places around the US, and still enjoy sailing and scuba diving when I get the opportunity. At one point, did lots of interior design and installation of woodwork on boats, especially OLD ones. I often carved mermaids and pirates and skulls on boat tillers and wheels which kind of led me into carving full time. For the last 18 years I have focused on crea...

I Got Sick From Walnut - I think....

03-15-2010 03:37 PM by BradJacob | 21 comments »

Hey everyone. just wanted to tell you all of my experience and see if it’s real or just coincidence. On Sunday Feb 28th, I was in the shop all day working with black walnut. Cutting ripping, crosscutting and dovetailing. Of course with glasses, but with no breathing protection. All day Monday March 1st, I had a sore throat – only it didn’t feel like a typical “sore throat”. It felt like I actually had a tiny chip of wood stuck in my throat (it was that isol...

Woodworking with the kids #1: First Projects

03-15-2010 03:27 PM by David Craig | 20 comments »

This weekend, my boys uttered the words most Woodworking adults want to hear from the younger generation “We want to make something!” My sons have always been supportive in my endeavors to work on things. They like seeing the things I made and will often ask me if I can make this or that for them. When I started this hobby, one of my goals was to reduce dependency on the cheap goods at the stores and reduce the mentality that one needs to buy instead of making what is needed. (...

PM66 restore

03-15-2010 07:47 AM by Bradford | 6 comments »

I bought a Powermatic 66 at an online auction web site. I paid $350 plus $135 processing. After rental of a truck I drove 158 miles to York PA to pick up the saw. Upon my arrival back, I set up the mobile base, slid the saw onto the lift and moved it into the shop. We pulled the motor, pulled the worm gears, blade, wheels and everything else. I sanded away all the old paint, and repainted it with the closest color I could find. It had a hammered look when dry. The magnetic switch was mounted ...

Curly Cherry Dresser #1: Gettin' There!

03-15-2010 07:06 AM by oldskoolg77 | 4 comments »

Guys(and gals!) here is the project I am currently woking on;Seems like forever ago when I built these case sides, I selected these cherry boards from different logs. That in itself took some time, the ribbon curly cherry is not so abundant as some other figured species. Anyway I kept my eye out and finally found enough, and got it dry, I air dried the lumber in my shop using dehumidifacation methods, while hand selecting the drawer front boards. They all have the ribbon curl as well. I just ...

This is my first blog entry I am hoping I do this right:) Today I figured out that I really need to get my business underway after another week on my job I come to realize employers know no limit of abuse.!! I was given the vision of my business in 2005 I tried to make a run at it only to have people discourage me from it:( So I went to work for a company and went back to school for two years for furniture and cabinetmaking. This past year (2009) saw a wicked time change in my work sched...
