I found this giveaway and thought I would pass it along. Its a drawing for a free router bit set with cabinet. I can always use more router bits and I am sure you can too. The odds have to be better than the lottery for winning. You could give it as a nice gift or keep it for yourself. Wouldn’t you know it, I bought this set about a year ago and now they are giving one away! 50 Piece router bit set
Well, the Woodworkingshow at Sacramento Convention Center is done. About 25 LumberJocks (and one LumberJill) signed into our booth.Things started mid-day Friday and completed 4:00PM Sunday. We had a number of people stop by and ask ‘What is a LumberJock?” Wow, did we have a great time talking to them. We told the LumberJock’s story to about 100 or more people. some, of course, were not interested, but a surprising number took the ‘businees card’ I created as ...
Happy new year to everybody.The year 2009 was really great as I became a member here and made a lots of friends. So this is the new years day, and it’s is just like Xmas in USA, family get together and eat/drink…. New years days are Japanese traditional holidays, there are lots of customs, how to decorate our house, how to say “Happy new year”, how to exchange post cards and so on. And one of the exciting part is the food. We call it Osechi-Ryori. We cook the food o...
I’m getting ready to assemble a dust collection system. I’m concerned that my 16 Gallon craftsman shop vac might not have power to collect for my 16X16 shop. I am planning to use a combo of PVC pipe and flexible 2 1/2 or 4 ” hose. Has anyone ever done this? any problems?
I haven’t had a whole lot of time lately but began work on making a box for my Dad’s Burial Flag. It’s been going agonizingly slow, with so little time available… He earned his Flag as a 20-year Naval Reservist, one of hundreds of thousands of young men who volunteered for service when things were heating up over in Korea. Patriotic Fervor about our country was still wide-spread and strong, happening so soon after WWII, and so many volunteered that the Services didn...
I have been a bit homeless and sharing off of other blogger’s platforms. I am starting my own site and blog that is directed to the woodworking community. My current site is static and primarily functions as an online portfolio for my clients. Well, I am actually rehashing what I posted at my new site.

The largest was about 12’’ tall were using a MM20 / Driftmaster / Resaw master blade must say what a great combo. We are also re-sawing some 1’’ old growth southern yellow pine to 3/8’’ for the door and drawer fronts, I actually gummed up a blade and had to remove it for cleaning. I did some reading and also remembered we ...
Not a big fan of garage sales, but my wife is, so in an effort to not discourage her from going she will call me if she sees any tools (I think she is doing reverse psychology, it works), most of the stuff she finds is junky, but today she asked if I needed a hand sander, I always ask for her to send me a pic. This is what she sent It was pretty ruff looking when I went to look at it, no batteries or charger. Caked with stuff, looked like drywall dust and over spray, the shroud looked ...
Well… it took a lot of fiddling with the code and searching various forums… to find a way on blogger to incorporate RSS feeds into the main section. The solution in the was rather simple. ~ theloveofwood - blog roll ~ For those interested: <b:widget title=”Stu's Shed – Stuart Lees” type=”Feed”> <b:includable> <b:if> <h2><data:title /></h2> <div class=”widget-content”> <dat...
