I am going to just do a short post today. It has already been quite a busy day and I need to stay ahead of things. Yesterday was busy and productive. Among other things, I was able to do a lot of the ground work for my next project. (The one I am creating for Toletown, that I mentioned yesterday.) This project is taking some thought and experimentation, because I am trying a technique that I haven't really seen done before. That doesn't mean it is difficult or that it hasn&...

My eldest Son Adam and his Wife Vanessa visited post New Years Day mainly due to his son Rocky starting school this year.We had a great time together and on the last few days I found a note from Rocky (very well written I might add) asking me to make him a workshop.My initial comment to his Mom was did he really write the note she replied yes and she said she was not sure what he was up to. I asked Rocky what sort of workshop he wanted, and did he have a plan, now its possibly timely to u...
This past weekend was amazing! I’d been busy all week and Friday my mom calls me (she’s 86) and said her dog had been hit by a car. The local vet didn’t feel comfortable doing the operation it needed so I drove it to the Ohio State University vet hospital 2 hours away. They operated, and the dog is going to be ok. I was up all night and when I got home at 7:30 in the morning, I went to bed. My wife called me from work and said our daughter and son in law were on their w...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0mA4RMA7-c Hi guys. Check out what I have been up to lately. Great fun!!!
Since I started this blog almost exactly 5 years ago, I’ve really only half-heartedly added tools to my collection, and generally just tinkered around with projects. As you can see, I’ve not posted a single “Project” here at lumberjocks. Until recently I kept telling myself that I couldn’t tackle anything substantial because I didn’t have the right tool(s). I’d say to myself, “If I only had a [bandsaw, planer, spindle sander, dovetail jig, et...
What’s happening in the shop for December 17, 2009 . The finish is one the baseball loft bed with a murphy bed on the bottom. Turned out GREAT! Today I’ll put the final touches on it and get pictures posted on my site tomorrow. (see below for some pictures that I have now) I’ll also be working on a Bullock murphy bed and a couple bookcases. For missed video and building pictures see my Current Projects link at wwbeds.com or poggyskids.com. Watch us live:<di...
A journey into the workshop. #91: Shop, and bedroom cleanup. Free woodworking magazines (Local pickup only)
As I mentioned in a prior post, in an effort to save space in both my shop, and the house, we are digitizing as much of our media as possible. After digging through the many pages of the various magazines, I have found that my favorites hands down are Wood Magazine, and Shop Notes. To the end of the goal of physical media reduction, and the fact that at least Wood Magazine keeps shipping out the same articles recyled year after year with a few new ones sprinkled in to keep you subscribi...
