Stool News

03-04-2008 11:55 PM by Woodshopfreak | 5 comments »

As you may know I am currently in the progress of my shop stool. I just compleated the assembly of the stool, and sanded everything. As you may also know I was going to have a part 3 about finishing. Well, I’m not. I actually began the video for part three, and decided that the stain I was useing was just not right. I am very mad about this and don’t know what to do. I had put the stain on a test peice and wiped it off, and it looked great. Well when it came time to stain the peic...

Scrap book cabinet #3: Took 4 hours But

05-01-2008 02:31 AM by jjohn | 6 comments »

Another day off (Wednesday’s) and down to the garage/shop I go. Thought I’d give a progress report. You know that it takes longer then I ever thought to cut, plain, measure, glue and pin 46 slates in place. Might not have taken quite as long if some of them weren’t cut on 45 deg. angles, and almost everything was cut by hand. But, I enjoyed the time spent. A little closer to the finish line. Next I will sand all the slates with 220 grit and start the drawers. Remember I s...

05-26-2008 06:50 AM by mpwylie | 5 comments »

I bought the ridgid table saw, planner, and jointer @ Home Depot this afternoon. I will put them together tomorrow. I got a delta dust collector from lowes, last week and ordered a cyclone lid from Woodcraft. I am so ready to get started working on some projects I can’t sleep, thats why I am bloging tonight. I would like to set up hoses for my dust collectorl. I am looking at a kit from sears for $130 and was wondering if anyone has any suggestions about it or if it would be better...

Tips #2: Suntan your cherry, #2

07-15-2008 04:18 PM by Al Navas | 4 comments »

From my latest blog entry, First, my thanks to all who read my earlier entry, and sent me e-mail requesting a follow-up. Here is that follow-up, from my blog:==================================== In this episode I answer a question from Michael, on WoodNet: Is there a difference in suntanning before or after applying the Waterlox? I noticed that you only applied one coat on 1/2 of the board but never showed the end result of the suntan. And my reply was: I currently have the tes...

Another day, another nickle #11: Oh, well.........

09-01-2008 02:57 PM by Thos. Angle | 21 comments »

Hi everyone. I’m back in JV for a few hours and thought I’d up-date all of you. The ranch job lasted all of 30 days before I did like everyone else has, I bagged the sucker. The guy can’t remember what he says from one day to the next. So…...... I called Yellowstone Outfitters and we went to Jackson Hole. We wound up with the wagon train. I drove teams on the wagons and Carleen wrangled dudes except for one week when she cooked. Slept in a tent and ate in the dirt. Jus...

Me and My big Mouth #1: Me and my big mouth again

09-29-2008 10:35 PM by Rustic | 6 comments »

Well, I opened my big mouth again. My wife and I were talking about our spare room, that her 27 year old son finally moved out of, and how we wanted to redo it. The first thing that we are going to do, besides clean, is we are going to put our new computer that was given to me, in the room. She wanted to buy a desk and once again I opened my mouth nad said I could build one. I don’t have a clue as to how to design one that would suit our needs. But since I opened my mouth, I am going to...

Jet Miniature Woodworking Collectables

11-01-2008 01:32 AM by matt garcia | 10 comments »

Hello fellow Lumber Jocks!! As you all probably know, Jet is giving away these collectables with certain purchases. These are very detailed, and extremely authentic. The spindle sander comes with all the different sized spindles even. Working for a Jet distributor, when I heard about these, I ordered the entire set! Maybe one day they will be worth something! Right now, they are very neat to look at, and I’m storing them in their individual boxes. Hope you enjoy them! ...

No leads, no sales #2: Finding a needle in a haystack

01-12-2009 06:47 AM by closetguy | 21 comments »

The road is littered with great woodworkers who crashed and burned. It is also littered with part time craftsmen who relegated themselves to weekend woodworker status because they tried to sell their works of art, to no avail, and decided there was no market. Of course, my favorite is the weak excuse that they can’t compete with “Rooms to Go” or Wal-Mart. I suspect that in most of these situations, they just could not figure out how to find the right customers. In this business, 90% of the...
