Okay this maybe odd but, I have tried to get into a few different shops. I worked in one for a little while and I loved it but, I was working on commission and was having problems getting payed by the owner. My question is about my resume. I have always been very creative and know that I can do what ever a job would require. I also know the economy is in a hole right now. But I am going to post my resume and I would love some feed back. Please be very critical. I am an artist and have ...
121 woodworkers have donated to this website out of over 6,500 woodworkers who use it. I won’t say it.As a donor, I know that while my contribution wasn’t large…at least I contributed something. My return to viewing Lumberjocks started about a week ago when I came back to this website after a hiatus from my shop, etc…family needs and such. Again, I was inspried to do something more in my shop from what I saw here. I’m “one-man-power” and not perf...
Well, I recently built myself a new shop. I moved from an 8×8 to a 12×16 I know this isn’t much to most of you but it is huge for me. Now I have my tool out on display and I’m not working off the floor. I have always felt that I have the ability to create beautiful pieces of furniture and the Ideas have always been there. I mean, I have a sculpture degree, I received numerous awards for my work at the University of Montevallo. I don’t ever want to sound full ...
I am finding that I LOVE looking at my projects on lumberjocks. Its terribly vain I know. Like staring at yourself in the mirror and being in love with yourself. Its like when I finish something part of the finishing process and shamefully a large part of the excitement it seems is snapping off some pics and putting it on lumberjocks. Then when I am making one of my daily checks to see whats new and impressive on lumberjocks I will often look at one of me own projects. I know what my st...
This is a work in progress. Not from me but my youngest daughter. Every once in a while one of my two daughters will come to work with me. They have their own work shirt and tool belt. I asked my youngest daughter what she was building and she told me a trampoline. I assume this is because I have asked for one for the last several years and my wife will not let Santa bring one. I think I like this one better anyway. What is the elasticity of oak? I’ll keep you posted on th...
From my blog: I started my hand-cut dovetail journey this past September. In this post I share my graduation from Hand-Cut Dovetails-101. What a terrific day! As I have mentioned in those previous posts , I have been hand-cutting dovetails every chance I get. I prepared sycamore stock so that it would be at the ready when I have a little (or a lot…) of time to practice. Today I cut dovetails in three little practice boxes, with minimal paring on the pins. Oh – I almost forgo...
I was looking at my latest magazine from American Woodworker when I got to the back cover and saw that Laguna has this big package for what seems to be a reasonable price for big ticket tools. And since I am in the market for most of these I considered the package deal, but as I was reading one question came to mind about the shaper. I have never worked with one and therefore I have no clue what the heck they are. I have seen T-Chisel use his and to me it looks like a glorified router tabl...
Laguna is having a 25 Anniversary celebration and they are having a year end celebration. They are selling some tools at fantastic discounts.How about a 16” prototype bandsaw for $395. They are in Irvine California. If you go to their open house on Sat you can see a CNC bandsaw slice wood pass after pass like butter. That I’d like to own. Limited on tools you better call before the open house.
are only constant depth across their length if the board is flat!
After many months trying to decide what to buy i have ordered a Spindle Moulder c/w attachments for 1/2 router bits. i plan to Oak Panel 3 flights of stairwell in my house and need to do as professional job as i can seeing its the house. The thing that put me off the table router was the fact that none have built in hieght adjustments, Raisers !! what an after thought i think, most look less than sturdy etc and one seems to be always under the table for adjustments etc. the spindle moulder i...
