Well all finished just have to add a few more coats of poly to the mdf I do about 6-8 on the mdf for the extra protection. Anyways here are a few pictures of it completed, i’ll try and get some pics of where it’s new home will be. The sides are walnut lot’s of sap wood, entire boards of it first time using wood like this, red oak doors and drawers.
So after several years of saying I would finally expand the dust collection and improve the miter saw setup I finally got started on it a few weeks ago – of course nothing is simple now is it… So it gets started – the 400 sq foot shop has been steadily shrinking for a while now so I thought it was time to get it reorganized and try to improve the miter bench setup and provide a lot more dust free storage as well as give me a lot more flat surface area to work with. The Bosch slider take...

After a busy weekend at Frank Klausz’s class, I headed out to Woodcraft yesterday for a day long workshop with David Ellsworth. Very cool. David is an excellent teacher. Knowlegeable (duh!), and very laid back. There were 10 in the class (I think). After doing a demo of making a natural edge bowl, we jumped in and started turning whatever it was that we wanted to work on. Some did natural edge bowls, some cut edge, and some hollow forms. I stuck to cut edge bowl – wound up ...
A few days ago….....my good friend Patron celebrated his 1 year anniversary on LJs ( http://lumberjocks.com/patron/blog/series/2635 ).........he alluded to a Twinkie hunt in this blog…........ yesterday, he graced my humble abode with his presence…....along with a box of Twinkies…...in case we didn’t find any. After greeting my family….....the usual banter about woodworking, tools, gossip, and news took place. Then we ate….....bbq ribs…...ta...
Well, I might have been beaten. I plugged the saw in today, after all this work, and nothing. The capacitor starting system has problems. So, unless I can get it fixed or replaced somehow (bringing it into an electric motor repair place that specializes in this), the saw is dead. Too many proprietary parts to be able to cobble something up. Stand by, we are having technical difficulties. We are hoping it can be overcome somehow. Jim
I failed to get around during the weekend and only captured these shots of some of the timber left last thing on Sunday afternoon… Very busy with my boards etc and answering questions about the Torque…after all that was what I was there for…Lots of different timber available and well priced… There were some bargains to be had… from what I saw being carried out of the show past the Torque Workcentre Stand… George sold out on the Saturday and had to cu...
I don’t remember everyone’s name but there was a lot of people there yesterday and we had one heck of a great time. I forgot my camera but Rustic Rick took a bunch of pics he said he would put on as soon as he had time. Dustin again brought his bunches of veneer. Wow, I scored on the wood exchange with a pile of curly maple plus a roll of curly maple veneer, how’s that for lucky. I know David Craig got a board of blood wood that will keep him in inlay for life. plus I gave h...
Building a deck for my backyard. It had one on when we bought the place but it was very old and wobbly so we ripped it down. Fast forward 2 years and now we are putting up a new one. Decided to go with green treated wood primarily due to the cost and easy availability. I also had been making adirondack chairs and found out all of the cool colors they make stain in now! the deck is 13’x12’ this was also my first attempt at making stairs, only ruined one extra 2×12 :)...
