Well, thanks for the great welcome. Found this forum searching for solutions to some issues as I started upgrading the shop, and thought it would be a good source of information and camaraderie. I checked out some of the threads, such as “You know you’re LumberJock if/when…”. That made me wonder…would I fit in. Am I … er, ah …. crazy enough, you know…obsessed? Then realizing that yesterday I dumped a whole quart ($15) of Watco into the bottomless pit of MDF that is my new radial arm tab...

Well I made it to Berea today. YEAH! Had no travel troubles this year. The weather was perfect, the can ran well, and no college student tried to introduce himself to me through my back bumper. What more could a girl want? My brother tells me that I’m not really on a vacation unless it involves a little hiking or a museum trip. So when on my way outside of Nashville and just past the state line I saw a sign for a Shaker Village museum I decided to take a side trip. Round trip it was...
Yo whats up everybody I am working on a project now and I found something out today that really surprised me if you put a polyurethane down over top of a oil based finish then it is a really rough surface if you sand it but if you take a rag soaked with mineral spirits then it removed that rough coat and it seals the wood up really good.
I received my new Veritas #5 1/4 Bench plane from Lee Valley on Wednesday and as usual I’m very happy with the quality and service that I received from Lee Valley. I decided I really needed to invest in a decent workbench to use with hand tools. (My Festool MFTs just don’t have enough weight and stability to them for hand tool use.) So I decided to get the smallest bench from Sjoberg, its not really that heavy, but I fixed this problem by bolting it to the concrete floor with 7&...
Hello all. I am in need. A need to fill the void. The void is an empty spot. The empty spot in an area of the shop I haven’t seen in years. There actually is a floor under all that “junk” as the bride would say. (I say golden treasures.) But, what I need now is spiritual help and a set of free plans for a drift boat or dory. I know I can build one, just need the plans. Have looked and downloaded several but cant find ones concerning a Montana style. Those guys craft some s...
A Great Breakfast Rita and I had a great breakfast and visit with Dave Mitchell and his wife. They are passing through Billings and stayed at the campgrounds down the street since they are pulling their little camp trailer. We had a nice visit last night. I gave him the shop tour and showed the few pieces that we have been able to keep over the years. Now they have left it is time to get back on this little project for Rita. A Recap (Short Version) I started making this project...
I have been shopping for a top quality saw and I was leaning Sawstop because of the Safety Feature,but I must say that I did have a chance to look over really well this time the new Unisaw by Delta. I was very impressed with the saw. To begin, they did redeisgn a new mobile base for the which is just as beefy as the table board. I like the fact the Trunnion System was a single cast iron system, the bevel guage which can be adjusted in the front. dual front cranks, they worked pretty smoo...
