Another LJ anniversary

03-06-2016 04:30 PM by jbschutz | 2 comments »

Well, another year on LJ…...I just realized I missed my fifth anniversary as a member. But, more important than that are all the friends I have made on the site. I think most will agree that the LJ fraternity is the reason they post. The wealth of information, ideas, and inspiration is why we are members. With another anniversary on LJ, comes another more important one…..51 years of marriage to the most wonderful lady on the planet. We are celebrating on Kaua’i at our favori...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1709: A Horse of a Different Color

03-10-2016 02:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

The past couple of days have had me down with a cold. It hasn't been a terrible cold, but enough to make me tired and move a lot slower than I would like to do. Fortunately, it has come at a time when things are slowing down a little for me. While there is never a 'good' time for being sick, I am glad this wasn't a month or so ago when I was in the midst of cutting the hundreds of ornaments that have been ordered from me.  (I always try to look on the positive side of thi...

It'll be 3 years that I've been on Lumberjocks in 13 days!

05-04-2010 05:15 AM by jack1 | 10 comments »

Can’t believe it’s been that long. I remember stumbling onto this site and thinking, “Hmmm, looks interesting.” It has been, to say the least. One of the first comments I got was that it could be habit forming and it is. Lots of neat people with very creative projects. I’ve learned a lot and hope I’ve helped some too. A special tip o’ the hat to Patron, Jayjay, Karson, Wood Soldier and A1Jim as well as so many others. It’s been fun and no...

The Great Woodshop Redo

05-17-2010 04:57 AM by PASs | 2 comments »

This is the last will and testament of my sure to be over budget, behind schedule attempt to bring order to the chaos that is my shop/garage. I started this project last weekend but was too ashamed, and tired to actually blog it. But I think the blogging will help my psychosis.I’m sure I’ll rewrite things in following posts. But the creative juices are flowing (64 ounces of Diet Dr Pepper can do that to your brain) so I’m diving in. Buckle up….cause this train has no t...

Extremely Average #149: Accidentally ran across a neat carving today...

05-31-2010 05:54 AM by Ecocandle | 1 comment »

Hello, As I mentioned in my blog, not much going on for woodworking this weekend, as I am hanging out at my parents. Today my mother and I went into Ames and had a lovely day. I ran across a bit of carving, in the form of a gnome. It was carved by the Mid Iowa Wood Carvers. It was an accidental find and I took a picture and included it the blog. Today’s blog is mostly just photos. There are lots of butterflies too. Tomorrow I head home and will get back to playing around in ...

fitting contractor shims on an octogon roof for a bird feeder

03-24-2016 11:03 PM by hobby1 | 0 comments »

I’m building a couple of bird feeders for a client, friends of our family, he tried to look for shaker shingles for the roof covering, but could not find them, so he opted to buy a couple packs of contractor shims, the run of the mill type you find at a local lumberyard. So today as I was looking for ways of how to apply these to the octogon roof, I found a pleasing effect of fanning them from rafter to rafter, it gave a swirly look from the edges, so I decided to document this in a...

Sketchup 3D Tool Models #1: Sketchup Tool Models

06-13-2010 06:09 PM by WoodScrap | 8 comments »

I’m sure I am just missing the posts on this subject but thought maybe somone could sedn me in the right direction. I am buying a new house which has enough room on the lot to build a stand alone shop (good planning, huh?) if any money is left over from the house. I want to start designing the shop and although I am an experienced CAD user I am new to Sketchup and would like to save myself some time by using prebuilt models of standard woodworking tools. Can anyone point me to sketchu...
