Hello, there. I was lurking here and other forums for some time and decided give myself a little bit of publicity.Well, like many of you I become addicted to woodworking. It is actually started many years ago when I was a kid and was sleeping in wood shawings while my dad was making furniture. Making furniture was not his main job, but made it on side. During my schools years did many small projects and different shelving and casing in my grandmother’s house. Once I got out of the schoo...
I just bought the February issue of Western Horseman and guess who’s picture was on page 51? Our old saddle Pal Thos. Angle. Riding shotgun over, not only a herd of cattle, but a herd of greenhorns according to the story. I think having to take care of cows and greenhorns has gotten to Thos. as he told me he is retiring to JV with Carleen. He said he’s tired of the heap of horse “nure” being spread on that big ranch and riding herd over the greenhorns and fake cowboys....
Just a reminder to all the Michiganders that there is a Woodworking Show this weekend in Taylor down by Detroit. Should be fun we’re going with Rustic Rick and his wife and meeting up with SteveMI. The html address is “http://www.woodworkingshows.com/” Hope to see a lot of Lumberjocks there. Maybe we can figure out a Lumberjock Picnic for an earlier month so we don’t freeze the balls off the old brass monkey. (An old Nautical Term).
Dustbunnie’s accident had me searching randomly on Google for riving knifes. In the process, I ran across this article on Finewoodworking (http://www.finewoodworking.com/item/25130/man-wins-big-money-in-tablesaw-lawsuit) Man hurts himself on a table saw and sues the manufacturer because they didn’t license the SawStop technology. What was more interesting was the hundreds of comments on the story. I don’t know which bothered me more, the ones about tort reform, or the ones that said ...
Took the shell to work. Reason? Don’t own a lathe. So i turned it on a big metal engine lathe. I had to clamp it very loose because the 3 jaw chuck was distorting the shape. If I ever make these things for real, I will make a jig to hold the shape.
I have been wanting to get this project completed for some time and now its on its way to being done. I built this about a year ago and it had served well but it was difficult to set up without a fence until now. I picked up the PinnAcle fence on closeout at Wood Craft and got the dust port parts while I was there as well. I had the T-Slots so I put them in and I will make some feather boards tomorrow and install the front T-Slot for that T-slot then one day this week I will go back to Wood C...
Visited a friend, in New England. He lives in a 100+ year old building. The original panel doors had cardboard for the panels. Figuring this out, somebody punched in his panel, unlocked the door, and stole a few things. He, and their HOA, could find nobody who sold the doors that matched the original design—a requirement of the building. So my friend hired a rather local custom woodworker to MAKE him a new door. As a LumberJock, I surely appreciated it. Thought y’...
Making the drawer fronts was similar to making the drawers themselves. The actual construction of the fronts was not overly hard but there was a lot of repetition in terms of milling the wood. The one thing I could have done to improve the overall construction was mill the wood close and then let it acclimate it a bit more. Here’s a picture of the drawer fronts on one cabinet Here’s the cabinets being integrated together.

Hello LJ’s, I have become a featured blogger on the Des Moines register, so most Sunday’s I will be writing my blog about Social Media. Today I wrote about why one would use Twitter. Tonight’s post is ‘What is Twitter?’ http://su.pr/2idoup If you don’t use Twitter, you might give it a try. There are a lot of really great woodworkers who hang out and chat. I am following several hundred really clever people. Brian @ExtremelyAvg (My Twit...
