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...
.. 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...
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...

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. ...
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...
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...
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...
