Chicken Coop #1: More to come

03-31-2010 04:42 AM by ardbeg | 4 comments »

This is far from fine woodworking, but I feel the need to get something up here and start talking about what I have been working on in my new shop with my new tools. While I bought my new stuff to make boxes and furniture, it turns out that you can also make chicken coops with a Jet Proshop. Pic at bottom. My wife and I decided having a flock of 6 chickens for egg laying would be a fun way to get closer to the food chain and make us more aware of how our food gets to our table. Of co...

Extremely Average #88: Introducing My Router Table

03-31-2010 04:39 AM by Ecocandle | 7 comments »

Hello All, For those who have been following my router table building adventures, I am pleased to announce that it is a fully functioning table of routing. I love it. I am especially pleased with the dust collection adapter I created. It not only works, but looks pretty good in my humble opinion. The best part is that I have learned a bunch. Ok, now to conjure up ideas for my next adventure. :-) Thanks, Brian

SawStop #1: The Arrival

03-31-2010 04:28 AM by Don | 15 comments »

I finally got fed up with my cheap General hybrid table saw. It’s been a good saw for the money but I was a professional wood worker long enough to know the difference between it and a good cabinet saw and I was never very happy with it. I ordered the SawStop Professional cabinet saw from my local WoodCraft store a couple days ago and it arrived today:

006: pallet wood cutting board #3: cleaned up, ready for final shaping and finishing

03-31-2010 03:59 AM by Gary Fixler | 8 comments »

Well, it’s a lot nicer than it was where I left off yesterday. The router bridge (seen at the end of this post) is such a nice way to plane things, and I’ve thought of some ideas that might make setup a lot easier. I’ve moved up to a 5/8” or maybe 3/4” bit and it makes planing a lot faster. Too, I found that just putting masking tape along the bottom edges, curved to stick to the workbench is more than adequate as a hold down until I come up with a better solu...

Part 2 - The Bed is Finished #2: Pics of the Completed Project

03-31-2010 01:26 AM by davidroberts | 7 comments »

Last night I started this blog. You can see Part 1 here: I started with the footboard and almost screwed it up. I thought dousing it with stripper could melt the glue. I had been told that professional refinishers will sometimes not dip old pieces in fear the piece will fall apart. So I scrubbed with denatured alcohol and scraped and sanded for days. Then I got brave, bought a gallon of STRYPEEZE paint and varnish (and shellac) r...

My Hand Tool Journey #6: Santa Is Early This Year!

03-30-2010 10:39 PM by Kent Shepherd | 19 comments »

I got my mail today and could not believe what came. The label was hand written which confused me since most things to the store are from businesses. Then I saw who it was from—-David “patron” in New Mexico. Of course then I began to get excited. It didn’t matter what it was, it had to be good. I mean, who wouldn’t want to get a package from such a great Lumberjock. Obviously, I was totally shocked by such a kind gesture. I already knew David was a great guy....

Cribbage Table Plans

03-30-2010 08:55 PM by Al | 2 comments »

Hi to all. I’m looking for plans to build a cribbage table… a novice, I think I could do this without plans but I wouldn’t mind a saftey net. Since I can’t seem to find plans for a table (tons for the board itself) I was hoping that someone might lead me to a site with some plans. Thanks for the assist. Al

Why did I choose the nickname Jawhorse?

03-30-2010 08:41 PM by Mark Whitsitt | 3 comments »

Well, strictly speaking, it was an accident, but I decided to keep it anyway. All of the good names are already taken, and I’m really no good at generating clever and creative nicknames. So, I was looking at a couple of pictures to upload to a Project page, and I saw my new Jawhorse in one of the pics. I wondered if that name was taken, and obviously, it wasn’t. So, not the optimal name, but fitting and one I can get used to. Here is my new Jawhorse used as a miter saw stan...
