Well after getting a working router table in my newly rebuilt table saw, I asked my wife what cool project to work on next. She said “paint the trim in the hallway”. WHAT!!!! so I covered up the TS with tarps and have been using it as a table to paint the doors while I do the trim. Needless to say that means no progress on the workshop and I’m dragging my feet altogether. Soon soon soon I hope to uncover the TS and get back to working the shop. Meanwhile I inherited a small ...
I am so slow when doing a project for the first time. Good thing about this one is that I have gotten to play with my new jointer, planer, and cut some crown for the first time on the Makita LS 1016L sliding miter saw. Building upside down and backwards has been a challenge in visualizing for me. Used furniture grade SYP from the lumberyard except the 5.25 inch oak crown that I bought at big box store. All that is left is to mount over the fireplace in my daughter’s townhouse t...
It’s hard to believe how little progress I have made in the last month, but other areas of my life tend to take priority sometimes. The last time I posted, the overwhelming consensus was that I had unwittingly applied moldy drywall compound to my walls. Go me! It sure is a good thing this is a blog, where mistakes are okay, rather than a how-to tutorial! :-) I was lucky in that a lot of the mud was still wet enough that I could pry it off in large sections with a small drywall kni...
I had the opportunity to visit with Ellen (Ellen35) and Lorna (moonls) at Ellen’s place today.It was so nice to finally meet the LJ gals. Lenny was going to join us, but we changed the date and he was unable to make it, next time Lenny for sure. I got to tour both of their shops today, and I’ve decided they must have OCD because both of the shops are spotless and tidy. Next time I will arrive unannounced…hehe. I was amazed at Ellens cordless drill collection, every one...
Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription OptionsWhenever I lay out my project parts in rough lumber, I find that there are 5 things that I always try to keep in mind. This video is a quick excerpt of those five tips from the Chest of Drawers Guild Build. And yes, this is clearly an advertisement for the Wood Whisperer Guild. But hey, if I am going to advertise to you I sure as heck should put something useful in there for you to enjoy. If you have no interest in se...
Hello All, The story of Claude was discovered with the help of Henry the tiny box. Henry is still hanging out here, until the post office opens on Tuesday. Then he will be off to his new home. I hope you enjoy the story. http://su.pr/2xzTeQ
Got a bit windy out and an oak tree fell in my woods. I managed to save a burl which i cut with a hand saw and it took forever to get off. This will be my first attempt at a bowl.cup ( depending on size it finishes to be ) and once again i will use only hand tools. I’ll update it as i go. ENJOY !
So I’ve decided to up my Lumberjocks cred and get rid of that pesky zero next to blog. I’ve always considered myself a math/science oriented person, and the thought of writing only recently appealed to me. In the interest of personal growth, however, here goes nothing. Lumberjocks, not unlike woodworking, is a land much explored, leaving one to search for novelty. One topic that appears to have not been extensively covered, however, is the building of a personal website....
Does anyone own this spindle sander? If you do I’m wondering if the height listed in the spec (20.8”) is the height with or without the spindle sander installed. I’m trying to design a flip top box for this model sander and my Delta planer but I need this measurement. I currently have this spindle sander ordered but it hasn’t arrived yet. I’d like to know the measurement with the spindle installed. Thank you in advance.
blogs…..this would be my first ever(I don’t do facebook/4square/myspace or twitter). I don’t really have any projects completed or forthcoming. I just figured this would be a good place to put into words random thoughts/ideas or what have you that pops into my head, since the coffee shop closed. So welcome to my world, more to follow…..................................................................
