Shop Safety #1: Regarding Karson's Kickback Survey

08-07-2008 04:04 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 50 comments »

Hi All; I thought I would pass on HOW my kickback occurred, so everyone might keep this is mind when working in their shop, or anywhere someone might surprise you. First off, I do use a splitter for all through cuts, ALWAYS. (Obviously, cutting dodo’s and other cuts require it be removed) I had just started to rip a piece of wood, the board was almost to the splitter, but not quite. That’s when my wife busted in and startled me. I turned to see what happed behind me and m...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #40: 50,000 Words of Wood

11-02-2008 03:29 AM by frank | 5 comments »

50,000 Words of Wood I’m wondering how many writers are on the roll-call here at LJ? The month of November is a good time to see how many words one can produce, to write a novel….about a story with wooden content or....? Can you write 50,000 words in one month....then you can sit back after the smoke clears and say; ”yes I did….write a novel.” I mean we are workers of wood right, and as such I have many words of thoughts going through my head cons...

Da Workshop #2: And So It Begins

12-27-2008 10:12 PM by Tomcat1066 | 17 comments »

What with Christmas, this seemed like the perfect time to put together the various Wal-Mart gift cards I had and run and pick up one of those pop-up gazebo things. It is perfect? Not really, but it’ll work just fine for my purposes. I cleaned up the porch a bit and popped it up, as can be seen here: As you can see, it’s only 10’x10’, but by virtue of it’s “open design”, I’ve got the whole back yard if necessary. Now, I just needed a w...

Moving to the Farm #1: And so it Starts - The Starting Stock

02-23-2009 09:19 AM by PG_Zac | 9 comments »

This is a woodworking website, so I’ll try to limit this blog series to mostly wood related entries. Many people have expressed their desire to move to a farm. Well, we have that opportunity, and we are grabbing it with all hands. Just a little introductory background: A couple of years ago, I was going nuts because the project I was on had been on hold for several months, and got delayed for another 12 months, so I resigned. I decided (with my wife’s approval) to work out...

Downstairs Built-ins Extravaganza! #1: Time to get started

03-29-2009 04:39 AM by BethMartin | 11 comments »

So recently we had gutted our downstairs. Our home is a 70’s split-level and the walls were previously covered in painted-over wood paneling. We took off all the walls, ran 5 new circuits, put in a ton more lights, and redid the fireplace with gas inserts. Now the walls are back up and painted, and it’s time to build all the built-ins that I have planned. I’m putting shelving/drawer units on either side of the fireplace, then making a double desk for our computers, a vani...

Kitchen Cabinet Challenge #5: Day 6 & 7 - Nearing the end...

04-15-2009 05:41 PM by Bill Hall | 1 comment »

Here I attempted to patch the holes left my the previous hardware using my carving gouge to cut out pieces of the offcuts. To handle the floating panels, I tried to cut them to size and re-bevel the cutoff end. I found that the center of these panels are chipboard, so now I have to either replace them or try to attach the bevel on the cutoff the larger piece and make the transition look seamless. Of course, the edges of the floating panel were not square, so I made a jig to aid me in...

Inlay Pens

05-23-2009 01:00 AM by epp_dog | 3 comments »

I was just mesmerized by the inlay pens at Kallenshaan Woods and with a bit of leather carving money in my pocket I decided to buy some of these kits. The fish and moonscape are my first 2 and are made for the Wall Street 2 style pen. I have an American Flag for a Majestic yet to start. I should have taken pictures of the pieces but here are the blanks glued up. I just filled in the gap around Saturn with black epoxy. When that dries I will add the sterling silver “stars” a...
