Just for Fun... #58: I Had to Find Out...

12-31-2011 11:41 PM by littlecope | 15 comments »

The week before Christmas, one of the waitresses at work told me of a customer who had come in and asked about the Signs and the Comments Box in the Restaurant… Who made them? Can the person make more or different ones?It seems the lady wanted a sign made for Christmas…Beverly the waitress told her who I am, and when I work, and that she could speak to me on Friday… But the Lady never called… I told my Girl Debbie about it, and how I would have told the Lady that it wa...

Gun Stock Carving # 3 #2: The finish

01-12-2012 04:46 AM by Jimthecarver | 8 comments »

Today started pretty much like most days do…. a couple of cups of coffee then its off to see what I can get into.As I was drinking the first cup, the eyes started opening up and I began to think about the Gator stock. By the second cup I was wide awake and off I went.The air compressor is fully charged and the Shofu rotary tool is serviced and ready as well. I began by stripping the rest of the finish off of the emblem so I could detail it. After all the finish was removed I then detail...

Carving a Bald Eagle, 1st Blog #1: First Up-date

01-24-2012 11:07 PM by LittlePaw | 9 comments »

I thought it’s time I filed a progress report on my attempt to carve a Bald Eagle. But first, let me apologize for not starting on the BE. You see, I’ve been looking at a couple of geese blanks sitting atop my fridge in my shop. Every time I wanted something out of the fridge, I could just hear these two geese honking at me to free them from the blocks of wood! So after a year of resisting, I finally got one down and started shaping and cutting on it, figuring that if I mess it up, at lea...

I probably shouldn’t have posted the other pictures in “Projects”, I feel like I’m adding drama to the ‘off topic’ posters, but….Here it is.

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #15: How often do you rearrange your shop?

03-23-2012 03:52 PM by StumpyNubs | 24 comments »

If your shop doesn’t have a comfortable corner with a chair and a place to sit and look upon your woodworking domain, you should find a new hobby. There is one thing that I like to do more than make sawdust, and that’s sit back in my chair and look at all the tools and benches and piles of wood. I feel like the king of a wooden kingdom where I can choose which piece of oak lives, and which one gets brutally cut in half. I am all powerful and I have an army of machines to protect m...

Testing: Table Saw setup for Half Lap Joint

04-05-2012 12:46 AM by Joe Lyddon | 7 comments »

Testing: Table Saw setup for Half Lap Joint I cut a piece of good hardwood scrap to about 3/4” x 4” x 11” I measured 5” from one end & marked with knife. I measured 10” from same end & marked with knife. Knife-cut lines all the way around the board at each 5” point. Labeled things to make it look nice. I had cutoffs from the same piece of hardwood for testing the cuts. ============================================= Proceeded t...

Good morning all!

I have been a faithful reader of this forum for quite a while and finally got up the nerve to join. You guys and gals are such tremendous crafts people and I just wanted to say, it is an honor and a privilege to be able to talk wood with all of you. A bit about me. I am retired Air Force, having spent 18 years as both an active duty and reservist JAG. I am an attorney full time but really, I am a woodworker full time. I started working wood in 1987 by fixing a picnic table in my back yar...

Tool Picking #1: Cinco de Mayo - Tool Picks

05-05-2012 11:30 PM by TrBlu | 6 comments »

Beautiful day in Northeast Alabama to do a little tool picking. First stop, gathered 4 pipe clamps, 8 corner clamps, froe, Wilkinson folding drawknife, Disston one-man crosscut saw, and 10 woodworking books. One of the books was about colecting old tools. LOL Walked away from this sale only $60 lighter, in the pocket. At the second stop was only about a block away from first. I spotted this Disston D-8 Swayback. Picked it up, had it in my hand while lookin...
