1404 days ago by naomi weiss | 4 comments »

Taken from the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography Wallington, turner and diarist, was born on 12 May 1598 in the parish of St Leonard Eastcheap, London, the tenth of twelve children and the fourth son of John Wallington, citizen and turner (1552/3-1638), and his wife, Elizabeth (1562/3-1603), the daughter of Anthony Hall, citizen and skinner, and his wife, Jane. Following the death of Elizabeth, John Wallington married Joan Hinde, a widow with two children, and following her death in ...

Working with the tools you have

1375 days ago by cwdance1 | 8 comments »

Well as you can see from my profile I am new to this type of woodworking. When I was young I worked with my dad building houses. But that type of work is not the same as making things out of wood. So far I have a small collection of tools and I am makind due with what I have. That being said, working with ruff lumber and no planer or jointer has been a challenge. I did make a small CNC router a few years ago. I was quit surprised that it did work. The learning curve has been a hard one...

So, no table saw.

1350 days ago by AnnaEA | 5 comments »

Went over to Bill’s today to get the table saw. This did not go well, since the table saw did not run when we plugged it in. After a while of fiddling and checking things with other things, it has been determined that the switch and relay are bad, and it needs re-wiring. It has also been determined that a lot of the places on the frame of the saw, where you are supposed to be able to bolt things to other things, are also no good. The bits that the bolts should be bolted into ...

Radial Arm Saw Refurb #1: Tool Gloat

1311 days ago by HokieMojo | 20 comments »

Well, here is the other big tool purchase I made recently (spray can for scale). closer shot: This saw was posted on ebay, but there appeared to be some inaccurate information on it (model number never existed, blade size was incorrect, serial number was never produced, etc). I wasn’t able to get answers to my questions before bidding closed, so I passed on it. Apparently everyone else did too. I suspect it was a combination of a confusing description, making a big purchase w...

Workshop #14: A quick jig

1261 days ago by clieb91 | 5 comments »

Did not think this quickie really qualified as a project, but decided to at least do this blog about it. I have been experimenting a lot lately with various toys and games. Just simple stuff got a number of older books with simple plans and ideas. Recently I made this truck.. Still needs a little work around the edges, but I like the way it turned out in general. The hole saw concept of making the wheels however was not appealing to me (may just be my hole saw), So I was thinking about...

Glass/Mirror Sources

1239 days ago by Jim Savage | 1 comment »

Maybe I can save someone some time and driving with this quick tip. I needed a mirror cut to a specific size for a project. Home Depot does not offer this service, but Lowe’s does. Lowe’s has glass, mirror, and both clear and opaque plexiglass that they will cut to size. If you are in Virginia, Pleasant’s Hardware will cut glass to size, but does not offer mirrors. That’s all.

1st Anniversary

1210 days ago by Don | 18 comments »

One year ago today I joined Lumber Jocks with the expectation that it was just another woodworking site. Within one day I had received 8 welcome messages from different members. I expected to get the usual automated welcome message from the site but to have actual people welcoming me aboard made it clear that this was not just another site that I would probobly soon forget. Then I started posting projects and getting even more feedback. I was hooked, LJs had become my primary woodworking site...
