I have been focusing on the workshop in our build, since this IS a woodworking site. But the other half of the building is for my “other half” and is his garage… also known as the “Man Cave.” I thought some of you might like a glimpse of that as well. We painted the floor with Behr 2-part epoxy, and painted the walls, the door and windows still need trim. (The right corner houses my Clear Vue Cyclone, which is not fully hooked up yet.) ...to b...
Saturday I came in from the shop and went upstairs to see what my wife was doing. She asked if the floor had dried downstairs as she had just mopped. When I went back down I realized that I had tracked sawdust all over her freshly mopped floor. This made me start thinking about what a woodworkers spouse has to go through on a daily basis and decided to write this letter as a spoof. Hope you enjoy. Dear sweetie,I just wanted to write you this letter to tell you that I love you unconditi...

Col’s shed will be posted as number 3..as per original plan…
Well, it’s finally here, the first installment of my discussion with fellow LJ member, Scott Morrison ~ Finewoodworker (he looks much better in person than in his avatar.) I had a great time talking with Scott and I hope that you enjoy sitting in on our conversation. I must admit that I thought of many more questions after I left Scott’s shop. That may be enough excuse to get with Scott in the future for another session;) In the first installment Scott shares his background in ...
**I am a professional woodworker, woodworking teacher and publisher. Fine woodworkers can build their dream rocker with help from a dvd, book, full-size patterns and online support titled Build A Maloof Inspired Rocker with Charles Brock. The next release in the series will be Build A Maloof Inspired Low Back Dining Chair. A graduate of one of the moist prestigious woodworking schools in the U.S. recently wrote me to ask for help. I am not sure how he arrived at having constructed a ro...
This is about the benefits of scrounging. Although I did not know I was doing that at the time. I was out the other night at Hash House Harriers. No. This is not a version of the infamous AA. For those of you who have not heard of Hash, it is a group of like minded individuals who have an interest in running and drinking (not necessarily in that order). It is international and has been around since just after WWII (hence we have had the name far longer than the drug). The definitio...
This has been a less than fun week for me and my family. My eldest brother’s wife passed away after a lengthy fight with breast cancer. We all scrapped what we could to get to the funeral together, and hauled up and across the country. Needless to say the visit was stressful for all involved. In all honesty I think it is a bit, well… sad that this is the first time in 5 years that my parents, my brothers and I were all in the same place at the same time, and this would have likel...
Hello LJs, Today I spent a good deal of time with the manual. More than any other tool I have bought to date, this one has a lot of things one needs to keep in mind for safety and to ensure proper use. I actually read some of the parts a couple of times. I would implore anyone who has a Dremel, and has not read their manual to do so. If you are not convinced, then just give my blog a quick read and see if you don’t discover something. If you do, then maybe you will be incline...
Made a cross that says hope on the cross bar. Pictures up soon. Will be for sale along with other projects soon.
Hi to all you LumberJocks, The weather is just to nice today to spend much time here. It is 80 here in Reno today with similar for tomorrow, then the big change. A drop of maybe 30 is being projected with quite a bit of rain and maybe snow. That being said the plan for those rainy days is to put the skin on the hull of the kayak. That requires fitting, stretching, the fabric over the hull stringers and attaching. I will be hand sewing the material at the bow and stern posts and then removing ...
