"Behind Blue Eyes" #1: A week of carving

09-18-2011 06:09 AM by mpounders | 12 comments »

Here is what I started and worked on the past week at War Eagle, in the class taught by Adina Huckins. I think I am making some progress and I am pleased with how this one is turning out. I also did several smaller heads and I think I am finally getting some of the facial planes in properly. I sent photos of this back to my family and several people noticed some resemblance to my daughter, who is a blue-eyed blond. Hence the title ( I’m also a fan of the Who!”. More to com...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #480: Monday Madness

10-03-2011 11:47 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I am typing fast, as I am running out early this morning. There is lots to do on this busy Monday and I want to get an early start. One of the things that is on the list is to contact the place where I purchased the magnets sheets from and see what different types of materials they have to offer. Even though I like these thin sheets, I would almost like something that is just a little thicker with slightly more holding power. As I indicated on yesterdays’ blog, these are pretty m...

LJ Interviews #22: Cajunpen

10-18-2011 04:45 PM by MsDebbieP | 6 comments »

This interview, with Cajunpen, is from the October 2011 issue of our eMag   1. How did you first get started working with wood?I can remember being about 8 or 9 years old and building my first scooter. All of the older guys will remember the old scooters – taking an old pair of the iron roller skates that used to “clip” to your shoes. Put two wheels in front and two in back. A piece of wood for the bottom, joined by a 90 deg. board for the riser and handles at...

Workshop Progress #1: Workshop Progress

11-02-2011 11:38 PM by WRAAdesign | 3 comments »

I am excited to join the Lumberjocks community to share and learn from my fellow woodworkers. This week, I continue to make progress on the workshop transformation. The walls were insulated and sheathed last weekend. Recently I began construction on the castor work table; heavy and stable is the key. Next I will build a power tool cubby. To design, I listed all the power tools that I currently have, and the ones that I expect to have in the future. After creating a spreadsheet of their ...

Day to day life #5: Snow Day

01-13-2012 02:54 PM by T. D. Reid | 3 comments »

Bill Cosby made fun of his dad “he had to walk to school uphill both ways in four feet of snow with no shoes and he was thankful for it”. I kind of feel that way this morning. We have an inch of snow on the ground and every school in the Muskingum Valley is closed. I really did walk to school every day in middle school and my freshman year in high school but it was in my back yard for god sake. I do remember more than one day walking in knee deep snow and my pants being wet when I...

14" Bandsaw riser kit, Pros and Cons

02-07-2012 01:39 PM by Blackie_ | 9 comments »

Something came to my attention yesterday that had not really surfaced until an attempt to make a fairly large bandsaw box with measurements of around 13.5” x 11”. I had the block of wood already eliminated to the size I needed but after taking a measuring tape from the blade to the riser I was surprised to find that by measureing from the riser kit to the blade I was coming up with 12.75”, measureing from the neck just above the riser block to the blade, I was coming up wit...

03-13-2012 03:13 PM by MichaelAgate | 9 comments »

Hi everyone, I was giving MsDebbie, an update on Matthew, and where things have taken him. She asked me to share it with you all, so I will add it to the initial blog I put up on Matthew. Since adding Matthew’s first video to youtube, Matthew has been getting hit after hit on his youtube page. There are some key people that I can attribute to the success thus far. Let me start in order Debbie found Matthew’s video on G+ and asked if she could add it to LJ’s, I was m...
