a-1 Jim you blocked me but thats okay

have your son call every radio and tv station to notify them of his trip to the emergency room. I am sure they would be very willing to get in on such a big story. I am sure everyone on here would support you with calls to the hospital, news or whoever it takes. Me, my dad and my son are all vets. It would be so much better if we were welfare recipients, we would get much better care.

Cedar Tree journey #2: From Log to Lumber

01-17-2011 03:38 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 4 comments »

Well I got the call today, telling me my Cedar wood was ready for pick up …I couldn’t get to the truck fast enough!! I was looking forward to seeing what beautiful wood was hidden within the tree’s bark… Upon arrival, I noticed my trailer loaded and ready for me…Wow, I was surprised how much lumber was produced from the tree… around 300 bd ft not bad for free wood… The beautiful pinkish tint of the wood was a total eye catcher, and some of the grain patterns were amazing.. I had the...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #239: On to the Saw!

01-28-2011 02:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

We wound up getting about a foot of snow yesterday. It is still falling now, but only a few flakes at a time are slowly falling. It isn’t that cold out though and it looks like absolutely no wind, as the flakes are falling straight down and look as if they are doing so in slow motion. It really is beautiful. I passed on my walk yesterday. I probably should have gone, but I was finishing up the last two drawings for this next catalog deadline and some things still needed tweaking....

Workbench #6: Finishing The Base

03-22-2011 06:04 AM by yuri | 8 comments »

OK, I finished cutting all tenons and mortises in legs and strechers. Time to check how all the parts fit together. Here are two legs on top Now whole bench, top up! Couple more views I was thinking for while about attaching legs to the top. That is what I came up with.I glued together three layers of 3/4” plywood and glued them to the top. I used plywood instead of wood to prevent any splitting. Screws were used for clamping, once glue cured I removed the screws. I tryed ...

Custom Coffee Table (wedding present) #3: Both side frames complete

04-17-2011 05:12 AM by JasonD | 0 comments »

Today was the first day that I haven’t had any shoulder pain in over a month. So, I took advantage of it and got a lot of shop time in. I got the second side frame complete and got the long top and bottom stretchers rough milled. I’m hoping to get the joinery completed for the long stretchers tomorrow and have the frame 100% complete. Then, all that I’ll have left is the top and the dove-tailed center drawer. Here’s a picture of the two completed side frames: ...

Wedding Clock #6: DISASTER STRIKES!

05-24-2011 12:19 AM by kenn | 6 comments »

I was making great progress on the clock. The wedding is 17 weeks away. My wife commented that she thought it would be done in time today. I headed done to my shop. I’ve been working on the front frame and thought I might be gluing it up today. Here’s a look at the lower rail, nice tight joint. I needed to put the profile on the bottom of that rail. As you may remember from my last post, I am using a huge fortsner bit to establish the curve and then bandsawing out the waste...

Making the garage a shop #10: More storage for the shop.

07-05-2011 04:42 AM by Shawn K. | 2 comments »

My last entry showed the south wall being finished, and french cleats hung up. I had to chose a direction. Either build a tool cabinet, or take advantage of some other wasted space. So I decided to fill in the gap underneath my Sjoberg’s hobby bench. It’s been a love hate relationship with that bench. It’s light, it walks all over the place when I’m planing, and it never felt very beefy. I loved it because my wife bought it for me, knowing I didn’t have t...
