Lumberjocks, thanks you for your help!

09-01-2008 06:58 PM by Schummie | 7 comments »

Dear Lumberjock friends, I want to thank the 5 Lumberjocks who try to help me to realize my dream.This people send me a donation and I want to thank them from the bottom off my heart.It feels so unbelievable good that strange people, from a far away country, try to help you. The feeling, thankfulness is maybe more worth than the money and that is maybe good in this case because the fund raising was unfortunately not really a success.I find it for Al the most unfortunate that the fund raisi...

Derek's Shop #2: Workbench V0.0 in progress

09-01-2008 06:00 PM by Derek Lyons | 3 comments »

Well, some progress has been made but less than I’d hoped. Here’s what we started with Saturday morning, the ‘amazing’ collection of shelving and workbench built by the son of the our houses previous owner: It’s not really clear in this picture but neither the shelves or the bench are level in any direction, and the shelves are actually bowed. (And were like that when we moved in.) They came down very easily – which was frightening considering ho...

Another day, another nickle #11: Oh, well.........

09-01-2008 02:57 PM by Thos. Angle | 21 comments »

Hi everyone. I’m back in JV for a few hours and thought I’d up-date all of you. The ranch job lasted all of 30 days before I did like everyone else has, I bagged the sucker. The guy can’t remember what he says from one day to the next. So…...... I called Yellowstone Outfitters and we went to Jackson Hole. We wound up with the wagon train. I drove teams on the wagons and Carleen wrangled dudes except for one week when she cooked. Slept in a tent and ate in the dirt. Jus...

Constructing "Old 99" #9: The cabin part 2

09-01-2008 01:36 PM by MrWoody | 0 comments »

I had a late start this morning. The power was off and I didn’t have any light in the shop.I cut a piece of 1/2” stock to the required dimensions. While I was using the table saw I cut a foot long piece 1 1/2” x 2” scrap 45° along the length for use later. I then drew a lot of layout lines to mark where the curve should start and end. I stuck the roof to the scrap piece that was prepared earlier using double sided tape. I want the end of the piece to sit on the top of my spindle sander...

Keeping track of my wounds: 13 and counting...

09-01-2008 12:06 PM by David A. P. | 6 comments »

I decided at the very start of my woodworking adventures to keep close track of any injuries I managed to incur, in part out of curiosity—knowing that it’s a hobby notorious for its danger, at least in comparison to most other hobbies—and in part because I want to identify where I go wrong, so I can address the problematic action(s).So far, I’m up to 13 cuts. Of these, the breakdown by source is as follows: 1, flush-cut saw. 1, paint scraper. 1, bow saw. 1, ch...

56 foot Schooner transom replacement #5: The woodworking begins

09-01-2008 09:03 AM by Scotach | 7 comments »

OK, two posts in one night….why not? We finally reached the end of the wrecking phase of this project and are actually getting some woodworking done on the boat. After wrecking out the old transom, spiling the shape of the old transom, we began to layout the new transom. So, let’s look at the process. Here we are with that large pattern we made of the transom. We’ve laid out a couple of lifts that were laminated up and are transferring the shape over to the new stoc...

56 foot Schooner transom replacement #4: Let the wrecking begin

09-01-2008 07:57 AM by Scotach | 5 comments »

We are making great headway on the transom project we began several weeks back. The original scope of work was to replace the transom on a 56’ stays’l schooner. Upon surveying the boat before work began, we found a massive section of rot in the horn timber at the top of the rudder trunk. So the scope of work increased a bit, but we managed to take out the damaged section and put in a repair that should last for a year or two until the owners can raise the money to do some major...

Weathering the storm

09-01-2008 05:21 AM by lazyfiremaninTN | 5 comments »

I want to take a second and offer my prayers that Charlie, Cajunpen, and all the other Jocks on the Gulf coast weather the incoming storm intact. I can only imagine what they are going thru. Please take a few seconds and keep them in your thoughts, prayers, devotions, or what ever you do.
