Around the shop #10: New shop tour

01-22-2009 06:48 AM by dsb1829 | 6 comments »

It has been a while since doing a shop tour. That wouldn’t normally be an issue, but since the last time was while I was still setting up shop things have changed a bit. So lets dive in. my LumberJocks workshop: The dirty side of the shop. This counter is a magnet for clutter. The cabinets house finishing products, house paints, power tools, router bits, carving sets, and extra hardware. High speed grinder and the air compressor ar...

Public Recognition for DaveR

01-22-2009 05:11 AM by Rustic | 8 comments »

Hi all I just wanted to give a BIG LJ Thank you to DaveR and his Sketch Up knowledge. Yesterday, I asked him for a little help and advice on a design I was doing. So I emailed him a picture and my SU file. Well, he tweaked it a little and sent it back asking me to call him so he could walk me through the process of designing this project. Well, that phone call lasted almost 2 hours (I think, I lost track of time). He was so nice and easy to talk to and learn from. I am forever in his d...

Entertainment Center #5: Seeing Double

01-22-2009 02:28 AM by DocK16 | 13 comments »

Haven’t posted any updates to this blog series due to home computer crash, so I’m borrowing my son’s laptop to post a few pics. I stated in my last blog I hoped to do something to the original plans to make this a unique piece. I’ve been saving a large piece of 8/4 spalted maple for something special and I think this is it. I was able to resaw it twice and get two bookmatched pieces for the doors and enough to finish the drawers. Other progress includes trim work ...

Needless to say I'm hooked

Hello Everyone, well needless to say I’m hooked on the LJ site after only one day. This is a wonderful online community, with a lot of helpful friendly people.

I’ve learned a lot from Steve about my Pattern making, and now that I’m no longer able to access my shop due to health conditions his is my contribution to the woodworking community. My primary blog is located at blogspot at th...

Thanks for the welcomes

01-21-2009 06:48 PM by epp_dog | 2 comments »

I discovered LJ from a link on TWW. Thanks for all the warm welcomes. I end up splitting my time between my woodworking shop in the winter and my leatherworking shop in the summer. As my bio states, I have a long history of framing construction and bridge building in the army. Most of my “woodworking” has been limited to remodeling my houses. With the addition of my father’s woodshop recently I am starting to discover the joys of woodworking outside of swinging a fram...

Since this is my first venture into any sort of “online community I am still, sort of, wandering around, getting to know what everybody else has, said, built, is interested in… Almost immediately, several of you “offered welcomes to the neighborhood”, general comments on what to expect and one in particular said…[I’m sure in a freindly and positive way…be careful, this (Lum...

No leads, no sales #3: Who Are Our Customers?

01-21-2009 05:18 AM by closetguy | 17 comments »

So who is your customer? It’s easier to answer this question by first understanding your product. Our products are custom made. We take the wood from a tree, cut it, sand it, caress it, fuss over it, and produce a product of functionality, fascination, or just plain envy. We work hard to make our products perfect and we spend a lot of money on the best tools to ensure this perfection. So why should we not get appropriate compensation for our effort? Unfortunately, many people, though t...
