Full blog available here: Welcome to my blog. This is new for me as it is for you. Allow me to briefly cover the goals of this blog. First and foremost, it is a way for me to keep you updated on my life, primarily woodworking. Woodworking is one of the biggest aspects of my life and something I never get tired of talking about or doing. However if there are other out-of-the-ordinary events that I am taking part in aside from woodwork, you may see a lit...

My First Workbench #21: Day 21: More planing...more sweating.

687 days ago by RaggedKerf | 1 comment »

For the picture heavy version, please click here! Today was all about the grind. Just grit your teeth and push through the burning in your arms and hands. To get going, though I had just had to settle my differences with the onery plane (it caused me to stop prematurely yesterday). I took my time and examined the thing to see what was amiss, because it wasn’t acting like this when I was planing the individual planks for the top a few weeks ago. Then I noticed it—-the frog...

Shesk keyboard tray mechanism

652 days ago by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

I didn’t want to use up the photo space on the project page explaining the keyboard mechanism, so I’ll do it here. This blog refers to my Shesk project here. At first I thought I’d just get a drawer slide to allow the keyboard tray to be pulled out or stowed, but the clearance required would have made the unit too tall and make it look too boxy. I wanted to preserve the shelf look of the unit. I tried to find an under-mount drawer slide—the expensive kind, b...

Making the Podcast Rounds

618 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 7 comments »

Hey guys – I was a guest on a couple of podcasts last week (I am way behind on timely blog entries.) First, I joined LJ member Marc Spagnuolo at the WoodWhisperer Guild. You need to be a member to access this podcast where we talk about doing built-ins. We cover several of the techniques, strategies and things to look for as you design and install a built-in project. If you are on the fence about if you should join the Guild or not, I will say that as a person that makes my living...

30 projects in 30 days #24: a look back at the first 27 days

602 days ago by scottb | 7 comments »

Okay, so I’ve been good about the projects challenge, just bad about the posting.  27 days in, 1 project left to do… maybe I’ll wait until Friday night for some last minute, down to the wire drama! Here’s a quick look at much of what has been going on in, and outside of the shop. Quite the mix of big and small. I wish I was able to do more “want to” than “have to” but I’m also VERY happy to have cleared a lot of those projects off the p...

Health issues and Attitude adjustment #6: Having ologist-itis...

541 days ago by Sandra | 25 comments »

Last week truly sucked. I typically don’t like that expression, but in this case it sums it up nicely. In April, it will be two years since I started this medical misadventure. Before last week, my diagnosis was idiopathic small fiber neuropathy. In other words, you have nerve damage. We don’t know what caused it. It may or may not level off. Go home and take drugs, or surround yourself with white light, or eat kale, whatever works. In my case, my pain management has invo...
