Around the shop #5: In the garage

11-05-2008 05:50 PM by dsb1829 | 7 comments »

I have been cranking in the garage, trying to get some semblance of a table together. My parents are due in, so we need to be able to seat 6 at the table for dinner. That 30in round table just isn’t going to cut it. Well, to the best of my efforts I don’t think I am gonna get it done. Here is where it sits. Things went together pretty fast.Say hello to my little friend.I have avoided biscuit jointers for years. Hard to justify dropping $250 on a one trick pony. Well, Lo...

Quest for a unique cribbage board #3: Design almost done

11-04-2008 08:27 PM by Heyz | 2 comments »

Ok, I’ve scaled this thing down a little bit. I drew out the actual size I originally intended and decided it was WAY too big. So now the total length is about 18 inches. That makes the track 1” wide. That was a great coincidence by the way. Here’s the picture. I was inspired by a nice looking piece of wenge to make it from that. And I’m testing some white oak and maple today for steam bending. The inside will be a nice light colored wood with visible grain. ...

woodworking suspended

11-04-2008 06:23 AM by Praki | 21 comments »

Unfortunately, I suffered a fall and managed to fracture my hip. I have been in the hospital for ten days now and expect to be sent home after three days or so. I am hoping this is a temporary setback in my woodworking adventure. iPhone is not the ideal device to follow the projects. Nor is it a good blogging device. I wonder if people find iPhone convenient for anything but a brief browse.

Starting Out

11-04-2008 04:09 AM by fixit | 2 comments »

Today was a slow day as far as shop time goes. I did manage to finish cutting the rabbet in the back of a frame for a Rosary which we will display in the church next week. The frame is made of red oak and is roughly 3’ by 5’. I still have to attach the back to the frame and add hardware to hang it with. That should happen tomorrow or Wednesday. Pictures will follow once I get it done. This is the first time I’ve worked with fabric and it turned out to be fairly trick...

This week in urban logging #10: Busy week...and it's only Monday

11-04-2008 02:47 AM by Daren Nelson | 11 comments »

Todays haul. These logs came from trees at a warehouse expansion. The company owns many acres and some of it is timbered. They hired a tree service buddy of mine to remove the marketable logs and, well market them. Believe it or not not long ago logs like this would have been just bulldozed (and far too many still are) to make room for “progress”. I will keep this blog entry short but have to explain this tree service is 3rd generation and until we started working together the onl...

Kitchen Remodel #10: The Corian installation continues #3.

11-04-2008 01:47 AM by Karson | 7 comments »

Well I took the counter top back out to the driveway today to glue the two pieces together. (See previous Blog in this series) I set up the Corian on my sawhorses in the driveway and pre set all of the clamp that I’d need to hold the pieces while the glue dried. The long MDF strips were to keep the surface from bowing while the two pipe clamps pulled the seam together. A piece of maple was put on the edge to keep the pipe clamps from breaking off any pieces on the edge. I t...

Saving money by urban logging #1: Felled black walnut trees for the taking

11-03-2008 11:48 PM by Julian | 7 comments »

Recently, I have put out the word to friends about my plans to use lumber that would otherwise be cut into firewood. Well it has paid off already. A good friend of mine has found 2-24”x11’ clear black walnut trees that have been cut down. The owner of them was going to cut them into firewood, till my buddy asked him if he’d be interested in parting with them for a small fee. To make a long story short, I will be picking the logs up for $100 for both! I figure that there̵...

Thanks to all the kind welcomes, I feel obliged to introduce myself and try to explain why I am here on lumberjocks. My name is Fritz, I’m 30 have a wonderful wife, A wonderful amost-2-year-old and another on it’s way. I come from a long line of DIY’ers although they would consider themselves “handy”. And I’ve tried to do them proud. We recently moved into a house to a two car garage, which even sharing with my wfie’s mini van, has given me to room to set up shop. And its coming together n...
