Pen Turners' Swap #2 #8: Marvelous Minnesota!

2155 days ago by itsme_timd | 5 comments »

I received a note from Rikkor that he has the pen box, he tells me it is VERY impressive. Sounds like it gets better at every stop! He’ll post us some pics soon and then it’s off to the West Coast for 2 stops in CA (that’s California for all you pen turners thinking about glue…) and then we’ll wrap Round 2. bigguy is next on the list – I hope he’s ready for the awesomeness that’s coming his way. At least Rikkor knew partially what to expect ...

Best Workshop contest?

2155 days ago by spaids | 8 comments »

I would love to see a showcase of the best workshop pages on lumberjocks. Does anyone else sometimes just randomly click on lumberjock workshops around the world hoping to see cool pics and innovative shop ideas? I work in a garage and everything has to be mobile. I like seeing how others deal with that “temporary” shop situation like I do. I also love to see woodworkers who have awesome shops with stationary work areas that I have submitted to only dreaming of. It would be r...

Constructing "Old 99" #11: Building steam

2155 days ago by MrWoody | 0 comments »

After dry fitting all the previously made pieces I decided that I didn’t like the look of the 1/8” thick plaques on the sides of the cabin so I pried them off and made new ones. I also decided that the walnut cylinders weren’t right either.I photocopied the side trim pieces again and glued them to maple and walnut 1/16” stock. I then used a Sharpie and made the lines on the walnut thicker inside. These were then cut out the same way as the originals and glued to the cab. Nex...

Treadle Lathe #3: Big wheels keep on turnin'

2155 days ago by Texasgaloot | 10 comments »

Well, I’ll take Labor Day. I know that doesn’t make me unique, but I was able to get some much needed shop time in. Work started on the treadle lathe. I’ll warn you ahead of time: the work is certainly going to be sporadic, since I have a couple of other projects I’m working already. But that’s okay with me. I started with taking a couple of 2×4’s and cutting half dovetails in them. They were left over from the platform I built so that I could ...

Hard lessons #3: Tools I did not realize I can't live without

2155 days ago by mhawkins2 | 7 comments »

Please excuse the double negative in the title but it is the most accurate way of stating my point. I’ll admit that much of my wood knowledge comes from The New Yankee Workshop, so I base my concepts of what tools are most useful on what I see used there. I don’t always see the usefulness of many of tools if I don’t see Norm use them But now I must confess that there are two tools for which I now have a new appreciation of there immense usefulness. 1) A low angle blo...

Are we ready yet?

2155 days ago by TheKingsTreasures | 1 comment »

We have been working real hard trying to get ready for the craft show coming up on Friday. I made a bunch of signs and Terry made benches to take but today he called me at work and said that we were not going to have anything left to take to the show. He sold 3 signs, a table and 4 benches already this week. I only have 2 days left to try and catch up. Maybe I’ll just have to take orders like I did last time but I was trying to have a good selection of different signs to choose from. I ...

Welcome indeed to

2155 days ago by grimt | 13 comments »

When I first joined LumberJocks It was pretty much with the same intention I have when I join many other forums, take what you need then bug out. I have a sneaky suspicion that LJs will be different. Welcome comments from 10 people I have never met before in my life, within 6 days of joining the site! Thank you all for your warm welcome. It appears there is much to enjoy within this community and I reckon I’ll be around for quite a while before I “bug out”. As me...

Hard lessons #2: Carbide Is Sharp

2155 days ago by mhawkins2 | 1 comment »

As a relativey new wood worker I must continue to remind myself that carbide tipped things are very very sharp. Complacency is a bad idea. I must now also remember where I put the bandages.
