Contest Categories #1: Is it fair?

02-01-2010 11:28 PM by LittlePaw | 36 comments »

When I logged on this morning to start voting for the LJ contest, I couldn’t help feeling that something is not quite right. I am not criticizing the Contest itself. I think the Contest is a great idea to promote woodworking and friendship among us woodchips all over the world. It can only be done over the Internet with the right site. Not even the best print magazine can come close to what the LJ is providing for us. That’s definitely an “Atta Boy”! What I think it’s not quite right ...

Starting Upper Cut Woodworks #11: Project Progress - Thomas Walnut Dresser

02-14-2010 02:22 AM by Matt (Upper Cut) | 3 comments »

I’ve started the first official project for Upper Cut, check it out here. Yesterday I went into Seattle after lunch and picked up the materials at Crosscut Hardwoods. The guys there are helpful, and they did most of the labor when picking out the materials, loading them into my trolley and pushing that around, and loading them into my truck. When I got home I was on my own though, and I had a lot of heavy sheet goods to move into the garage myself. This morning before everyone wok...

events #2: Anderson Plywood "Tools of the Trade" Old Tool Swap Meet - pics!

02-24-2010 12:13 PM by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

I’ve been lagging on getting these pics up since this past Saturday. I’ve been busy in the garage, and tonight I went to see a taping in Hollywood of an episode of a TV show that my old friend from college wrote. It’s his first written episode, and it was a good time. Anyway, Anderson Plywood is in west LA, just north of the Washington/Sepulveda intersection: It didn’t look like there was too much to see walking up from the nearby lot: However, I k...

Lessons Learned #1: Appeasing the jointer

03-13-2010 01:58 AM by live4ever | 8 comments »

There’s nothing like the sense of accomplishment when you’re able to successfully troubleshoot a problem. I was having some snipe issues with my Ridgid 6” jointer. The last 2” or so of the trailing end was getting gouged. A common issue with jointers, I hear. So I set out to solve the problem. My careful and scientific analysis of the problem (reading the manual and browsing forums) led me to believe the knives were too high relative to the outfeed table. So ...

Extremely Average #81: Call it being paranoid...

03-24-2010 04:51 AM by Ecocandle | 0 comments »

But last night, late last night, actually early in the morning, I became paranoid about a little bit of a screw that remained in the router table top. If you are interested in why I thought that this bit of a screw might ultimately lead to a horrible and tragic death, then feel free to read on.

Lumberjocks, I received an email requesting some information on how I got started in the stock photography business. I do like to play, er write, a request. So that is what I did. Back to woodworking tomorrow. Brian

Planned Conference Table

04-21-2010 06:18 AM by Brandon Hintz | 1 comment »

Here is a project I am designing and hopefully will soon be building. It is a conference table with some extra bells and whistles. The overall dimensions will be 150” x 54” x 30” There will be 5 power centers which will be raised into place with remote control linear actuators. The large power center will be 2 tier and have a projector mounter on a lazy susan so that the projector can be adjusted. The tops of all the power centers will be beveled so as to allow the power...

My Little Shop Progress #5: Shelving Matters

05-04-2010 03:10 AM by Kerux | 0 comments »

Before I share my work for today. I want to thank you all for your comments. Doing a blog has in a sense, it has given me some motivation to do something everyday or at least try too. Tonight’s offering is simple. With time constraints I really didn’t have time to do everything I wanted to get done… but hey, I am getting things done. The first picture is something I never ever really thought I’d need in the workshop. I’ve always had a shop in the baseme...
