Extremely Average #11: Dovetail Delusions

01-13-2010 04:27 AM by Ecocandle | 6 comments »

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” -Albert Einstein Because of yesterdays joyous trip to the post office, I had high expectations that today I would find a plethora of woodworking DVDs and a smattering of books, waiting for me. My anticipation remains. Driving across the endless miles, actually yards, which make up Martelle, I thought of Albert Einstein and his bike quote. I haven’t been on a bike in some time, but I was sure that all I n...

Wood in the 21 centery

02-03-2010 05:55 PM by Rogue | 5 comments »

Hey, check it out Rogue is finally in the 21st centery!! We just got the new site up. Its nothing fancy but neither am I. This has been along time coming. I’m sure some of you can relate when I say that I have more wood than money. Woodworking can be great way to get something you need but can’t accually affort!! Trades only work out about half the time. This is the case with the site. Worked and worked for someone and have never gotten the site that was agreed on. A freind put th...

005: scrap cutoff shelves #2: and now there are two

02-25-2010 01:33 PM by Gary Fixler | 14 comments »

All the pieces for both units were cut out at the same time, so there was another waiting to be assembled. I spent some time today on that. Here it is next to the first one, waiting to be filled up: I’ll have to find a new place to hang my roller stand, but that’s okay, as I’ve only been able to hang one of the two here on its over-the-rafters hooks. Right now it’s immediately in front of the new shelving: I learned something interesting about French clea...

Podcast

04-08-2010 02:18 AM by HighRockWoodworking | 1 comment »

I have been working on a podcast for a few weeks and just received approval today. After doing a search for High Rock Woodworking and also just woodworking in itunes I was able to find the podcast, so it looks like a good start. In the podcast I will be sharing tips and stories from fellow woodworkers. I still have some details to work out (like adding a picture) but I am making a good start. Please stop by and give me your comments, even if it is a little constructive criticism. Also,...

Good Customer Support

05-05-2010 05:21 PM by Kerry Drake | 1 comment »

I have a Jet JJP-10BTOS 10” Combo Jointer-Planer, and I noted last night that the infeed and outfeed tables weren’t co-planer. There were no instructions in the manual on how to adjust them, so I called the 800# in my manual and after only about 4 minutes got someone on the phone who helped me in under a minute (e-mailing me the information I needed). Very nice experience from WMH Tool Group (makes of Jet, Powermatic, and others). Oh, and here is how you do it:

Help with wood identification: Claro, or not Claro, that is the question

05-18-2010 06:11 PM by Brian Havens | 9 comments »

Help! After releasing my video last week on turing wood from locally felled trees, I got a call from an old friend (actually my former boss), after he saw the video. He asked: “Hey Brian, I got this Walnut tree I cut down some time ago. Can you use it?” Now when one says Walnut tree in Northern California, this most likely means a “Hind’s Walnut”, better known to woodworkers as Claro Walnut. Everything about this wood says Claro. It is from an area that...
