Resume,If you have hired someone before please read

12-11-2008 06:41 PM by Joshua Howe | 22 comments »

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...

Time To Challange Myself #1: Objective

12-11-2008 05:56 PM by Joshua Howe | 3 comments »

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 ...

Do you ever want to make projects just so you can see them on lumberjocks?

12-11-2008 04:18 PM by spaids | 9 comments »

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...

A Wooden Trampoline?

12-11-2008 02:32 PM by Chris Davis | 2 comments »

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...

Hand-cut dovetails #1: Graduation day: Hand-cut dovetails 101

12-11-2008 02:24 PM by Al Navas | 8 comments »

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...

Shaper or router table

12-11-2008 05:40 AM by Huckleberry | 7 comments »

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

12-11-2008 04:15 AM by Karson | 1 comment »

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.
