So I started getting into woodworking and bought a hand plane. So as soon as I got home I wanted to use it, so I put a peice of wood in my vise and started planeing. Five minutes later, my bench was four feet farther forward than it originally started. So I moved it back and kept going. Well I have done that for the past year and a half, and have decided enough is enough. So while I was in school I designed a Work Bench. Here are the specs on the bench:1. The bench is four feet deep, six feet...
I would like to wish all LJ a merry christmas and a happey new year
My sister and I commissioned a lady to paint a picture of my moms old home place where she was born and raised. This is also the house that my grandmother lived in until she was 96 years old before moving into assisted living where she lived for another 6 years. The house is still in the family but over the past couple of years it has gone thru some major renovations including new windows and alot more. My sister and I were able to get one of the old original windows off of my cousin who now ...
Love to hear feedback from owners of the Powermatic PM2000 or Jet JTSA 10XL in regards to what you like and what you don’t. As it now looks like these are going to be my choices for my new TS. I really had my heart set on a Sawstop PCS 3HP but I am just can’t justify $3,000 for it when I can get a new Powermatic PM2000 with 52” fence & router lift for $1,800. The Jet is about $300 less than that. Oh & please no stupid comments about the political issues surroundin...

I used Naval Jelly to remove the heavier rust. Then I used WD-40 with some 400 grit sandpaper.In this pic I have a layer of WD-40 floating on the top. I figure I’d let it sit like that until I get back to it.
Well to start this off, I should say the driving force behind getting the garage shop in order is that we ran out of storage in the house. We have a baby coming any day now, and there was just no room to put his stuff, ‘cause our stuff took all the space. Like most other people in my situation do, we turned to the garage to store stuff, this causes a dilemma, its my “man cave” my get away, I have hopes and dreams for this dismal cold and hard place… Well we compro...
So I have went to the lumber yard and picked up a couple of shorts. Now I have decided that I have a couple things I want to make. I am going to make 2 laptop lap trays and a box for myself. I have had my shop for a year, three days ago. That is when we bought our house and I “claimed” the garage. :-) . Those with wives know what I mean, although my wife is extremely supportive in my pursuit of a functioning shop. So today I am going up to the local library with my younge...
This is really just for me to practice putting a video together. I just got my new camera in the mail and was really wanting to try it out so, I just shot a couple of clips of what I have been working on lately. I am planning on putting some how-to videos together on framing for my new website. It would be a big help if you guys could give me some feed back on what you think I could do better. Also, sorry about the radio I will be sure to cut it off when I make the next one.Thanks,Clayhttp://...
