Being a high-tech guy by day, I find that I spend most of my time developing technology and not taking advantage of it. Doing woodworking, and even a little teaching woodworking (via videos), on the side, I am always looking to keep up with the latest trend. That being said, Todd C got me started on this whole Twitter thing. I have to admit, even as a high tech guy, I am not sure I really get the whole concept. And now that I have been at it for a few days, I am only lukewarm about the ...

There’s a new post on the Little Good Pieces Blog – “Leather Fetish”, covering some of my uses for an overlooked material. Check it out! http://littlegoodpieces.wordpress.com/2010/10/22/leather-fetish/
I know the title doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. Welcome to my world! Well as followers of my blogs know, I am doing some heavy duty clean up, as well as organizing my shop. Well last night during what time I could eke out for shop time, I managed to un-bury a couple of 29.5×24” 3/4 sanded SYP ply cutoffs. This was the stuff I used for my tool stacker. Now given that the overall dimensions desired for my upcoming small parts / router accessories cabinet is 32” W x...
Hello All, I continued to practice half blind dovetails today. I really like cutting them, or more aptly, chiseling them out. I think half blinds are more fun than regular dovetails, though perhaps it is just the newness of them. I am sure whatever I learn next, will become my favorite. That is how woodworking seems to go for me. http://su.pr/2lEgIO Brian
As another year draws to a close, I’d like to thank all my fellow Lumberjocks for their support and friendship. May your Christmas be filled with the love of friends and family, and the New Year bring you happiness and success. From my family to you and yours, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
so a few days ago i posted about a dust collector i saw on craigslist. http://lumberjocks.com/topics/23206 despite having a relatively small shop space, i felt like getting one was a (literally) healthy move on my part, plus it’s something i can grow into with new tool purchases etc. and less time sweeping means more time for projects! anyway, i went to this guys house, got talking, and we settled on $150 for the DC with assorted ducts and gates etc. i mention i only have a few to...
There is possibly no greater challenge for functional art than standardization. For most makers, you’d sware it was a four letter, get-your-mouth-washed-out-with-soap, filthy, word. If you dare to utter “standardize” in your college art class, you are sure to receive an F on your next project. The world of art does not square with having to work inside set parameters. However, like it or not, it’s a fact that those of us that make things that are to actually be used must accept and deal w...
I had taken the weekend off from the boards to regain my brain power for another week at work and time in the shop. I was wishful that the sawdust ferry had solved some of the problems with the cupping of the board but no luck. I took the boards to my somewhat trusty belt sander with 80 grit and began to bring down the cups and smooth out the glued up edges. I was concerned with the sander because it gouged that last boards I did and it took a considerable amount of time to fix them. I then ...
