Request for Help! #1: New to this site, and not sure what I'm doing!

01-14-2013 11:11 AM by JohnEP | 2 comments »

I am new to this site and happened across it by tracing the origin of an image of a prairie style bed from a google image search. I am a cabinet/furniture maker in Palos Park, IL. I am a retired educator and turned a lifetime hobby in to a small shop run out of my converted three car garage. I am trying to contact Vincent Nocito who designed and fabricated the bed mentioned above. The LumberJocks rules say that I can’t contact any of you until I have at least five posts? I assume t...

Ruminations, Philosophy, and Workshop Antics.......... #31: Function, only Function

02-08-2013 10:03 PM by Jim Bertelson | 28 comments »

.. Function, only Function…..another episode of….Sherie and Bubba Jim. Pounding sense into your man, one nail at a time... Now you are thinking that picture is a gag. Sheer fantasy….”How silly could anyone be?”, you say. Well, believe it or not, that comical looking construct (using the term loosely) has been working for over a year. OVER A YEAR, MIND YOU. This is actually the working internet connectivity cabinet, up until today. Yup, something to be pr...

As The Lathe Turns #7: The Bent Shaft Lathe

02-24-2013 01:25 AM by William | 18 comments »

You may remember, my recent adventures into wood turning almost ended before it even got started good due to the bent shaft on an old lathe. In that corner, there sits three lathes now, a Ridgid, the big heavy flat bed lathe, and the bent shaft lathe. Every time I looked over at the bent shaft lathe, I’ve considered what to do with it. It sits on a heavy old bar and was just taking up space. While I do have a very large shop, I still don’t like wasted space. I need to figure out w...

My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #9: The Dream, the Plan, the Project

05-11-2013 06:02 PM by Ethan Harris | 4 comments »

Hello Readers, Wow its been a really long time since I have blogged anything… Spud has kept me really busy. But today I think I have something to share that I have been realizing is the next step for me and subsequently Spud. I have come to the conclusion that I love woodworking, I love making things myself and seeing the satisfaction that people have with my product. A few weeks ago I decided that I would begin saving money from my business to open a brick and mortar storefront. ...

Three Rusty Planes #2: 3 rusty planes

06-18-2013 06:11 AM by Makarov | 5 comments »

This weekend I went to a garage sale, I picked up three planes the Stanleys were $1 each and the craftsman rabbit plane was $5. I left probably 10 planes on the table but didn’t have money with me and it was so dark I could not see the markings on the planes. I live on a peninsula with the Pacific ocean on one side and a bay on the other, things rust here. I think I can clean these up, the only fear is that the blades are too rusty. My Grandfather was a finish carpenter, M...

handtool workbench #4: a bench to build a bench

07-08-2013 03:06 AM by Tugboater78 | 1 comment »

just wanted to put something up, not much progress… As you may notice most of my work thus far is being down outside. The last 2-3 days i have done nothing cause here in northern Kentucky all it has done is rain, almost nonstop. ?My yard turned into a swamp, and though the rain seemed to cool things down a bit, the humidity went to 100% and the temps stayed in the high 80s. Terrible weather to work in, i know this cause these are the conditions i work in at my job, and i refuse to su...

Workbench Build #38: Final Assembly of the Top...

08-11-2013 05:34 AM by Airframer | 9 comments »

I couldn’t wait till tomorrow to put the top together. This did not go without it’s fair share of oh sh#t moments one of which almost had me starting the whole thing over almost.. But I’m getting ahead of myself.. I had planned to use pegs instead of bolts. I am trying to keep the number of mechanical fasteners to a minimum on this so lets have a go at it.. Marked out the location of the peg holes and drilled just the end caps.. Then fitted them and marked th...
