Two things today, one: I used my gripper rip off and it works fine, 2: had a visitor

03-04-2010 12:35 AM by jockmike2 | 12 comments »

First of all David (Patron) I used the Woodline USA adjustable push block and as far as I’m concerned it’s worth the 16.00 bucks. I had to take it apart and put some pastewax on it to make it slide better but once I did that it worked fine. Next I had a fellow jock stop by yesterday, David Craig, and he gave me some ideas on CLEANING my shop and ORGANIZING it, don’t know where he got the idea it needed that. Anyway, in return I taught him all I knew about sharpening lathe to...

Shaker Table - Woodworkers Fighting Cancer #1: Hot Knife, meet Butter

03-03-2010 09:09 PM by Kerry Drake | 0 comments »

March is here and by end of the month I hope to have the top of the built-in together and installed, and of course the Woodworkers Fighting Cancer table build (feel free to check it out and maybe make a small donation if you are so inclined). Last weekend I finished jointing and planeing the faces of the Cherry for top of the built-in. All finished it ended up just over 1” thick, so that will make a nice top. I still need to cut and joint the edges and I actually think I’ll e...

Website totally Overhauled... MUCH better.

03-03-2010 08:43 PM by Blake | 14 comments »

K.I.S.S. …KEEP IT SIMPLE… right? Some of you will remember the old site. It was pretty good but not very straight forward. The navigation was not very intuitive. My new site is MUCH easier to figure how to get around. Please let me know what you think. And send me a note from the “contact” page so I know its working properly if you could. By the way, there are lots of photos so it may be a little slow to load. Here’s the link: http://www.blakeweberwoodwo...

Bookshelves #1: raw materials

03-03-2010 08:29 PM by Vick | 6 comments »

I decided to try my hand with 8/4 stock and save a little money by re-sawing all the stock myself. Looking back at it, I guess it was worth the $100 I saved but it was more of a hassle then I thought it was going to be.

Shop Project Efforts

03-03-2010 07:22 PM by Blair Helgason | 7 comments »

Hey Everyone, I hit a snag with my outfeed table last night and figured I’d write about it. A couple weeks ago I made a hinged outfeed table for my table saw. It worked out great and I have been using it with great success until now. What I realized last night was that I didn’t take into account the tilt of the motor when the angle of the blade is changed. Pretty stupid mistake but I really just needed and outfeed table and didn’t want to spend a lot of time on it. This s...

From Jelly cabinet(Antique Look Jelly Cabinet)From Jelly cabinet(Jelly Cabinet Inside View) I posted this Jelly Cabinet in my projects and was asked to explain how I finished the piece. Thought it would be better to post it here then there.It is Poplar and I usually paint pieces like this but wanted to try something different.I don’t know that I could duplicate the finish on this piece and I’ll do my best to explain how I got the results you see here.My goal was to make the piece look like ...

Wood Art #7: The Wych Elm Project

03-03-2010 05:33 PM by Gary Fixler | 4 comments »

A couple nights back while on another of my serendipitous online adventures through the world of trees and wood, I happened upon a blog with a post entitled The Edinburgh Cabinet,RBGE wych elm project. It had some nice pictures of a cabinetmaker and some drawer fronts he’d carved with a scene of Edinburgh, Scotland (click for larger views): I love how the wood grain creates a kind of blanket over the image, like the radial glow of a sunrise or sunset coloring the sky, far mor...

I have joined a number of woodworking sites over the years but I have never received an expression of welcome like I have after joining Lumberjocks. Thanks to all who responded; hopefully I can contribute something meaningful as so many others seem to have done. Later.
