When I posted my project on the new work station for my Pen Wizard I jokingly said that I would be an expert by Sunday.Well, it’s Saturday and I’m half way there! I tend to do things over and over and finally the light comes on. I’ve probably used a dozen orphan pen blanks and a half dozen pieces of dowel trying to figure this thing out. (One advantage is that I have cleaned about half the wood off the tube so it doesn’t take so long to get it clear of wood.) Wel...

So when I first came out to Rockford, my parents showed me this huge flea indoor/outdoor flea market not too far from where we live, that was open every weekend, and I’ve found more than one hidden gem there. I’ve seen plenty of people selling all kinds of tools, in all kinds of conditions, althought it wasn’t until last summer that I really got into woodworking. Anyways, originally they had told me that it was only open spring/summer. Last time I went there were lots of ...
well over the past week i skim planer all of the lumber. it took quite awhile considering that to minimize tearout i had to take about 1/64” off of each board if not less while the board was wet with water to get a decent enough cut so that i can hand plane it without having to take off too much to remove the tearout. but honestly this stuff is just a whole different animal as far as wood goes its impossible to get it clean off of the planer. so here are some pictures of the skim planed...
Alaska Jim's Comments of the Day #10: Emergency router purchase - Bosch 1617 EVSPK - first impressions, and a surprise!
Well today started out OK. Down to the shop, after Sherie got up a little late, no shop work when she is sleeping…right above the shop. Finally decided that plywood was out of the question for my Super Sled due to poor quality materials…....I know…I will find a local cabinet supply to get me Baltic birch. But I reviewed the stresses etc, and with some thought and additions, 3/4 MDF will work, I am certain. So while trying to lift up a 4’x 8’ sheet of the stuff...
In 1972 October 20, Pete Rose hit a leadoff home run, and then hit a single in the ninth inning. This was game 5 of the World Series, and the Cincinnati Reds had just staved off elimination, thanks to my child hood hero’s efforts. The Reds would win game 6 to send it to a decisive game 7 in Riverfront stadium. I was 5 years old. On October 22, in front of 56,040 fans, and at least one little boy at home watching on TV, the Oakland A’s captured their first World Series since 1930, beat...
Yo whats up everybody today I took down my old clamp rack and set up a new one. Then I started organizing all of the cut offs and the shorter pieces of wood.
the stained glass shop down-the-street commissioned me to make a couple hundred dollar frame.... the only stipulation for the frame is it is to-be-in-the Art and Crafts Style … wood, design and finish, will all be mine … the buyer doesn’t want to see it, until it is delivered.. ..http://www.beauverre.net/..
