and then it becomes....... #11: The final frontier (Parental Discretion is Advised)

01-25-2009 04:05 AM by kolwdwrkr | 12 comments »

Well today I got the first coat of my mixture of tung oil, blo, and poly. I am posting it here now as done, although I will add one or two more coats of oil in the days to come. This project has been fun to make and I think I’ve been able to successfully come out of it with some new knowledge. Which is always a good thing I suppose. I had a story in my head for this project but I figured I would let each viewer make up their own.So lets start on the outside. The overall cabinetov...

Atlanta Wood Working Show

01-25-2009 01:44 AM by Bill Akins | 7 comments »

My wife and I just returned from the show and we had a blast. They had everything there from carpentry and cabinetry to hand tools and wood turning. I even made my first pen. I must have a lathe! We had our picture taken and they it cut on a scroll saw into a puzzle. Every king of woodcraft imagineable. My wife fell in love with the inlay and intarsia section. I was thrilled to try Lee Valley planes for the first time. I see why they are addictive. Wood carving, finishing and more. ...

Holtzapffel Workbench #1: Just beginnings

01-24-2009 06:40 PM by cylis007 | 12 comments »

I am just getting started in this hobby and have learned a lot from people who have posted their experiences and projects online. In return, I wanted to document my first project which is the Holtzapffel bench. Unfortunately, I started working on the bench before I found the lumberjocks website and did not photo some of the construction in the beginning. I plan to document the project a little more closely. I will also try to point out things that I learn along the way to help new woodwor...

and then it becomes....... #10: Just a little longer

01-24-2009 07:26 AM by kolwdwrkr | 3 comments »

Well I’m on the home stretch on this project guys. The main door is hung, the interior is installed and the handle is on. Now I have one more interior door to install and then I can start the finish. So the reason for this is to let everyone know that either tomorrow or sunday the project will be complete and I will post the final blog. It’s been a long road and I enjoyed every minute of it. I have to say this project took a very long time. I may have to smoke a cigar after thi...

Shop air filtration

01-24-2009 01:16 AM by goggy | 4 comments »

I joined LJ 6 days ago and posted a blog on air filtration. This is what I came up wth after following fellow LJ’rs suggestions. A few notes about my first project entry: Thanks for the warm welcome! I wish I would’ve found this fellowship earlier. I have renewed attention to my workshop and hope to post a completed version someday. On the upside, this air filtration device is quiet and powerful. On the downside, plug location will be changed to the top of the unit. Also, since m...

Turning slippery slope #3: Sharp tools

01-23-2009 03:36 AM by Betsy | 6 comments »

Well I just got back from my sharpening class. I now have very sharp tools and at least a beginning knowledge of how to keep them that way. I have also come to the opinion that I like the wet sharpening system more than the dry system (grinder). I don’t like the sparks. The wet system takes longer, but I’m in no hurry on anything so that’s not an issue. The issue is price of those wet systems. I’m going to have to do some considering on that. Not sure I’m ready t...
