Strange insight and inspiration

06-06-2010 05:24 AM by sawblade1 | 3 comments »

Good evening Lumberjocks, This week nothing happened much around the shop spent mostly doing house work after the painters, so this week in my spare time I called several banks and tried to get around $ 8,500.00 well by Wednesday I had been told no more times than a disobedient puppy dog. Well ? Wednesday night the look on my face must not have been a good one as my partner asked what was wrong ? I told him I didn’t want to talk about it OK he said but I know it’s bothering y...

Extremely Average #155: Working with my hand planes...

06-06-2010 04:52 AM by Ecocandle | 3 comments »

Hello LJ’s, Today’s post is much better than the horrible drivel I put up yesterday. I am still practicing dovetails, but the regular readers will be thrilled to know, I didn’t talk about them at all in the post. Tonight’s post is about my attempt at taking a piece of twisted, rough cut, walnut and making it flat. This is my first try at such a task. Before I started I had a hard time imagining how one would do it. Now I can almost see that it is possible, with...

Workshop #3: Finally posting my workshop

06-06-2010 04:48 AM by Woodcanuck | 1 comment » Finally sucked it up and just took some pictures of the workshop. It’s a mess….I know, it’s in transition and I figure I’ll post some updated pictures when I’m further along with the cleanup/reorganization. I’ve been juggling trying to get some things fixed up in the workshop, try to get some woodworking done and try and get some home renovations done. So far, the renovations are winning…but I’m...

Gracie lectern #7: fighter progress

06-06-2010 04:40 AM by kolwdwrkr | 8 comments »

Here is this weekends progress. I won’t have any time tomorrow to work on it unfortunately so once again the project gets pushed back. I’m glad I don’t have a deadline. I’d have to have a year lead time LOL. There just doesn’t seem to be enough time for this type of project. I started at about 9:30 this morning and it’s 7:30 now. It literally felt like I was out there for an hour. Amazing how these little pieces can take so long to put together. Whe...

In the thick of things...

06-06-2010 04:30 AM by rhybeka | 4 comments »

So my one break today from taking a final to working on a portfolio, I went up to my local Woodcraft (yes, I’m lucky to live in the same city as an actual store!). I was going to see if they could give me any advice or sway me on how to sharpen the plane blades. Lo and behold, Rob Cosman was giving a class on refurbishing old planes today – unfortunately – I had to take a final at the same time the class was going on, and I couldn’t afford to give it the five hours of...

Cool Shop Find: Wysong and Miles Belt Sander

06-06-2010 02:22 AM by HighRockWoodworking | 4 comments »

My dad has alway had the habit of bringing in some rather unusual tools into the shop. A few months ago he called and said wait until you see what I found. The next week I drove up to North Carolina and in the shop was a very strange looking tool….or something like that. It is a vertical belt sander made by Wysong and Miles Co. The sanding belt is less than 2” wide but is around 15’ long! The three phase motor runs great and is very sooth. The belt can does not have to...

And to to Marin County Fair. And to all the entire county of Marin. And to the whole great state of California. And to…well…everyone else….

Quandry- Do I stop the glue up and take the call from my wife??

06-05-2010 10:57 PM by robert triplett | 16 comments »

I was in my shop and halfway through doing the glue up for a cutting board when my wife calls on her cell. She is on a trip to see her sister in Berkeley, Ca. Prudence says I answer and risk the glue drying!! LOML was in Berkeley and had discovered McBearth(sp) Hardwoods. She saw the place, stopped, and she is calling to ask me which of the woods I would like! Lacewood or some of the others she described. One more reason to have been married to her for 30 years. I said Lacewood woul...
