Off-Topic: Social Networking

2134 days ago by ahpeditor | 8 comments »

I’m a woodworker. I’m also an editor working for a company that publishes woodworking content. So I want to start with this disclaimer. My personal posts to the website have nothing whatsoever to do with my employer. All comments are my own. Period. Now the important stuff. My first post isn’t about woodworking. It happens to be about social networking and sites like this and how they can help good, worthy causes. Let me explain. This morning when I logged onto my comp...

Creating Spalted Wood.

2134 days ago by Karson | 13 comments »

I received an e-mail from Harold and he referred to making spalted wood by putting beer on it and putting it into a bag and let the spalt happen. He suggested replenishing the beer every couple of weeks. Since I don’t drink beer, I wondered if there was a different recipe. I found this in WoodCentral. It sounds very promising. Still needs some beer but only once.

Why I like Vintage Tools #1: Power Tools

2134 days ago by brianinpa | 26 comments »

Through the years I have amassed a collection of vintage woodworking power tools. The most expensive tool that I have bought is a Rockwell/Delta 11-100 bench top drill press: It cost me $25.00. I didn’t need it as I already had one; a newer Craftsman 9 inch. After starting up the Rockwell the first time, I decided to never use the Craftsman again. In fact, I took the chuck off of the Craftsman and use it as a light weight press for small projects. My table saw is my work horse! A 1...

They're Raising the Roof!

2134 days ago by FJPetruso | 6 comments »

The carpenters came back on Monday & got right to work. They put up the trusses & half the sub-roof. They also installed the flashing where the old roof joins the new shop. Hopefully no more leaking. The new entry doors for the shop arrived too. Nice looking doors. They’re insulated steel doors with the upper portion being thermal pane glass. They will be installed to open outward & appear to be sealed against the weather OK.

A Hepplewhite style Federal game table in six days, PIX.

2134 days ago by John Fry | 13 comments »

A while back I posted a project that I did in my shop in California with my woodworking friend Jack Hutchison from Houston, TX. Here is that post: A Krenov Inspired Cabinet on Stand in Six Days We completed that cabinet during a six day visit by Jack. Our agreement was that at some future date, I would go to Houston and we’d do another six day project in his shop. So….I arrived at Jack’s and we completed a much more complicated piece in another six day time frame and here it is………....

Album Art #7

2135 days ago by pat | 5 comments »

So far for the next entry in this woodburning series I pretty sure that I’m either going to burn Mettalica’s Death Magnetic album( thier great new album by the way, hit song the day that never comes) or Buckethead’s hit album Jumpman. Buckethead is pretty much one of most over looked guitarists of all time, if you haven’t heard him you should look him up, most of his stuff is intrumentals though. But anyway back to wood burning I guess I’ll let the readers decide...

Lessons Learned #1: Getting started

2135 days ago by sry | 8 comments »

A quick introduction to get things started here. I’m just getting started in woodworking, and thought it would be an interesting idea to post the lessons (mistakes?) I’m learning as I learn them. Things like the importance of “measure twice, cut once”, etc. Whether you guys know it or not, I’ve already accumulated a large amount of knowledge from the discussions, projects, and blogs here at LJ. As I try to turn that knowledge into actual skills and projects t...

This may not warrant a posting , but I had to share.My wife called me at work yesterday afternoon and said I have a SURPRISE for you when you get home.I thought of many things I hoped it would be, but never dreamed that when I got home, she takes me by the hand and walks me to my shop.I hardly recognized the place. She had spent 3 hours with a dust mask, leaf blower, air hose and both doors open and had completely cleaned the shop of all sawdust. Now I keep a pretty clean shop, but nothing li...
