I know that it is hard enough to keep up with all the postings on this site, much less the other woodworking sites that are popping up but here is another one that has just recently been announced. Wood Magazine has added WOODTube to their Woodmagazine.com site. Here is the link that will take you to this site. Here woodworkers can both view and upload videos of shops, techniques and projects.
Wood Magazine Display Case #4: All the world is a diamond, and around ye the sound of breaking glass....
400 dollars is my first quote for glass cutting….Thats 10 bucks a square foot. Granted its a franchise (Mr. Go-Glass), but still there isnt much around here other than autoglass people. OUCH! Well a new quote is in from a local Screen and Glass shop…The prices are a little bit easier to swallow. Mirror is 63.70Door 30.55sides 15.50 each shelves – 60 each for 3/8ths or 32 each for 1/4.
The buzz about scrapers… Lately, talk of the cabinet scraper and the frustration that this little tool inflicts on a character has created some buzz in the LJ community. This simple, inexpensive, and very effective tool also frustrates me, but for a different reason. I see many people missing out on the joy of using this tool because they are fed too much information that clouds the simple truth. On the other hand… On one hand I appreciate the histories and detailed accou...
I hate it, but then again I don’t. I get random ideas for pieces of furniture that run through my head and I have to at least jot down a rough sketch or else I’ll lose something, and I really don’t want to do that. I don’t want to lose the table I came up with to house the onyx chessboard I inherited from my Uncle when he passed away (he was only 12 years older than me…we were more like brothers). I don’t want to lose the entertainment center with doors ...
I said in an earlier blog, that I was going out to get root buroughs, from the farmers as they trim their orchards. So far I have about 12 buroughs all walnut….over a ton easily.Thankfully the farmer was kind enough to put them in the truck for me, with his tractor. We were loading some, while he was burning some. These farmers seem to be in a hurry to get rid of them. I could easily have 50 by now if they hadn’t burnt them.While I was sawing of the roots, I found out my chain saw...
I was trimming some pieces of a “Spagnuolo” cutting board… well, its more like a trivet (8” square). I was using my father’s saw, he has nicer blade than me and I needed a glue line cut on these. I had just finished pushing the piece (8” long x 1”x 1”) through when BAM! I was hit hard, right between the eyes. I was using a push stick. I was standing off to the side. I was wearing eye protection. And the piece was too small for the guard to be on. What happened was that the glue for the las...
Are you knotty and keeping secrets? Then it’s time to get busy and creative again and compete for some great prizes in our Winter 2009 edition of the LumberJocks Woodworking Awards. You are welcome to participate in the following two categories: A Knot Like No Other – It’s creativity time!

Wednesday afternoon and I am having a lay down on the bed. It has been a very productive couple of days. Yesterday I drove to the local hardware mega mart store called Bunnings. I purchased some small MDF (about 2’ x 4’) to make an alternative present for my Mum. I was still feeling a bit seedy so decided to forgo making Kitchen Cupboard doors for Mum’s birthday. Mum is on the pension and to supplement her income she goes to garage (yard) sales and buys up Lego bricks ...
My youngest daughter was very much into horses when she was at home. We had 14 Acres in New Jersey and probably had horses for around 15 years or so. After High School was over the horses disappeared and the horse barn became a lumber storeroom. She got married and about 6 month ago her in-laws gave her some riding lessons as a birthday gift. The horse fever caught on again. This time she has a young daughter. For some reason girls and horses seem to go together. Missy sometimes takes S...
