Top Secret....Rocker for my Wife #1: Taking the plunge!

1360 days ago by bues0022 | 1 comment »

I’ve been posting lots of questions for about a week now, emailing and messaging fellow Lumberjocks, and I’ve finally started my project so I thought I’d blog about it to keep track of my project. Progress may not be the quickest, but I’ll post what I run into along the way – the good, the bad, and the ugly! My wife and I are thinking about finally starting a family. I just finished graduate school, got a job, and she’ll be done with her doctorate also in a few months. She has always wante...

Merry Christmas

1346 days ago by janice | 19 comments »

I know I haven’t been around much lately. It’s been tough for me, some of you know that. Just wanted to say I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas this year. It’s been great getting to know all of you. After X-mas I hope to be back in the shop. Not sure yet if I’m painting this winter or building something. I have so much I want to do. That stupid little thing called my job just keeps getting in the way of things. My husband started our boat dock. I’m hop...

Christmas Presents: Early & Late

1332 days ago by spunwood | 5 comments »

I was gifted by a very generous Lumberjock with a Skilsaw. I just recently used it to crosscut some hard maple, and I wanted to say thank you again to Jim C (it works great!). Also, I wish all of you here a Merry Christmas. That was the early Christmas gift. The late Christmas gifts are for my parents which I am just now working on: A wine balancer & A cutting board. You can see all three gifts in the the pictures

Grizzly Jointer - Shipping and Setup

1318 days ago by Jim Savage | 2 comments »

I got a Grizzly 6” jointer (G0452) for Christmas. I thought I’d share my experiences so far with the shipping and setup. (I’ll post a full review after I’ve used the jointer for a while.) My thanks to all of you LJ’s who responded to my post last week asking about the shipping and setup for this jointer. It was shipped UPS Freight, and I elected to pick it up at the terminal rather than have it delivered to the house. UPS said they could help me load it in...

BigBox comes through!

1257 days ago by RTim | 1 comment »

Wow, what a deal! I had been searching for a new battery drill. My old one was a 2-speed Kawasaki that I got for $50 at Costco. While it wasn’t a bad drill it had many features I disliked but accepted because of the low cost. While driving a screw, the trigger started to smoke so I yanked the battery and went shopping. No! I didn’t do it on purpose! I found a great deal on an 18v Dewalt with a half inch chuck at HD for $119. Checked online and my local store had 5 of th...

How can I square my square?

1244 days ago by nobuckle | 8 comments »

I have a steel framing square that I am trying to square (it’s out of square about 1/16”). I know that if I use a center punch I can open or close the legs of the square. The steps I followed can be found here; http://www.woodsmithtips.com/2011/02/17/is-your-framing-square-square/?utm_source=WoodsmithTips&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=4532 In the pictures it appears as though an aluminum square is being used. This method does not seem to be working for my steel sq...

As you may or may not know, e-mails are restricted, in the size, amount of information that you can send in an e-mail.We can share pictures, and text, right here on LJ, but some other types of files such as PDF files, for plans and such, must be dealt with another way.I have recently learned that with Google’s Gmail service, the size has been increased to 20 MB, I have tested this out myself with a 18 MB PDF file, sent to myself, successfully, through Gmail.The size of e-mail is restricted by...
