So a coworker of mine decided to be generous, but not in the way I would have liked… this colleague decided to come to work sick, and share the joy as it were.. Now I am out, although working remotely, and feeling pretty miserable… The good that did come from this is I managed to spend some quality time with the doc, and finally got them to run some Xrays. I honestly think there is something wrong with my shoulder. I have been trying to lose weight, but I can’t do a whole...
There are a lot of debates swirling around the Internet when it comes to SawStop. You’ve got technology, political lobbying, lawsuits, and violence. Then there’s the limited liability entity—is the founder a greedy overlord, benevolent finger savior, or something in between? In the hands of the right script writer, you could have a pretty intense TV drama or movie. But we don’t have script writers here, so instead we have endless debate. Ughh…. I myself hav...
I am practicing on the making of what some call a Osolnik Style Rolling Pin—Laminated rolling pins with multiple woods. I have read a number of references on the how-to but still struggle with the details of the diagonal cut vs the width of the blank. Any insights would be of value.
This week in wood shop I cut out my traced side pieces for the gun rack. I used the band saw to get as close to the trace as possible and then I sanded down the rest. It took 2 days to sand but most importantly I am happy with the results. Today I am gonna work on designing the top cross section ( I will carve deer antlers into it) and I hope to have that completed by the middle of next week.
I missed posting yesterday because I didn’t really feel that I had anything unusual or interesting to talk about . Things here have been really busy and I find that some days I just don’t have a lot of new information to share. I am coming up on four years of writing here now (I had to check – I thought it was only three!) and while I have many, many new readers, I sometimes feel that I am being redundant when I tell of the ‘routine’ things that I did on the p...

Step 5- plot out the cuts.

Well it’s been a couple weeks and the bitter cold snap has slowed the progress a bit.. but here’s the progress since we last met. I wrapped up the Toddler Rail joinery… voila! And surface prepped the walnut for finishing with some P220 on an ROS and P320 by hand. I was originally planning on just using my #4 and skipping the sanding (as much as possible) but I chickened out… I brought all the dowels home from Dad’s shop to my cozy (and down right CO...
It’s been a couple of month since I built woodspotting.com. It grew out of the frustration of current RSS readers, and the tiresome aspect of opening 20+ woodworking blogs to see if they had new content. Today, the site gets a regular and growing number of visitors, and tracks more than 100+ woodworking blogs (and growing). It hopefully sends some more traffic to the blog authors and encourages them to keep posting fresh content. Also personally, woodspotting.com saves me a lot of time ...
