I am starting a new post because I don’t understand how to add pictures to the old post. I think these pictures of the wood grain are central to this lumber subject. The following is a list of Claro and Bastogne Walnut boards available.

This past week I have been able achieve a little progress on the table tablesaw workstation. I now have a rolling base that is ready for cabinets. The base is welded up from “C” channel that I had left over from another project. My father was nice enough to weld me up the frame 2 weeks ago and bring it to a meeting point half way between us. This is going to be a beefy base but at least it will withstand just about anything that gets thrown at it like moving and the usual shop ...
For some time I wanted to build my own wood duplicator for personal projects. Theres several nice duplic..tor on the market, but I wanted to build something from the floor up. I used several ideas from duplicatorss on the market and incorporated those with my own. Mainly I wanted it light in weight – so I decided to use marine grade 3/4 thick ABS which is ultra light but extremely strong and durable. All of the 30mm glide blocks, stainless steel rods, and ABS only set me b...

With the pieces all marked and mounted at the drill press: I positioned at the general location using the laser: Refined the positioning with magnifying glasses and centering pin using the x-y vise: Added cutting oil and drilled the through holes for 11/64 inch (#8 screws) followed by counte...

We recently bought a ~22 year old house that needs some work and updating. As one of my first real projects around the house, I needed a new screen door to enjoy our screened in porch. The old door had decayed to the point of falling apart. I thought this would be a great place to start with a new found hobby of woodworking. The finished project is here: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/313826 I won’t go into too much detail here – just wanted to go through my steps. As I ...
It's funny how we fall into and out of habits. There are times when this happens with little effort or thought, and other times (usually when trying to develop positive habits) that it seems like a chore to follow through with things each day. There are also times in our lives when things change unexpectedly and along with it, our routines. I suppose that is part of living.For the past several months, it seems that every time I post here I am apologizing for not posting as often as I used...
I’ve been exploring the Southland for as long as I can remember. Walking around, driving around. Always observant. I’ve worn out cameras, in my lifetime. Yet, on a fairly regular basis, I come across things that make me scratch my head in wonder. How, on God’s Green Earth, have I not noticed this? Here’s one of those things. I came across it, yesterday, about four miles from home, in Uptown Whittier, while cooling my heels. I’m leaning against my car, looki...
This had been eating at me for a while, and I had to get it off my chest. I hate talking to the camera, but I hope it comes through. These are some tips about how to be a better member of the community and how to get the most enjoyment out of your shop time. Send me an “Amen Brother” if you agree, I hope this helps eek just a little more enjoyment out of the craft/hobby. Thanks for watching, please like and subscribe! View on YouTube RickWood.Work.LIFE
