Kids Stuff #7: Rockys Workshop Pt 1

01-29-2016 07:39 AM by robscastle | 12 comments »

My eldest Son Adam and his Wife Vanessa visited post New Years Day mainly due to his son Rocky starting school this year.We had a great time together and on the last few days I found a note from Rocky (very well written I might add) asking me to make him a workshop.My initial comment to his Mom was did he really write the note she replied yes and she said she was not sure what he was up to. I asked Rocky what sort of workshop he wanted, and did he have a plan, now its possibly timely to u...

Starting a Woodworking Business #12: More work & I'M A GRANDPA!!!

11-17-2009 02:41 AM by Sam Yerardi | 21 comments »

This past weekend was amazing! I’d been busy all week and Friday my mom calls me (she’s 86) and said her dog had been hit by a car. The local vet didn’t feel comfortable doing the operation it needed so I drove it to the Ohio State University vet hospital 2 hours away. They operated, and the dog is going to be ok. I was up all night and when I got home at 7:30 in the morning, I went to bed. My wife called me from work and said our daughter and son in law were on their w...

Setting Up Shop #10: No More Excuses...almost.

02-02-2016 10:31 PM by DylanC | 0 comments »

Since I started this blog almost exactly 5 years ago, I’ve really only half-heartedly added tools to my collection, and generally just tinkered around with projects. As you can see, I’ve not posted a single “Project” here at lumberjocks. Until recently I kept telling myself that I couldn’t tackle anything substantial because I didn’t have the right tool(s). I’d say to myself, “If I only had a [bandsaw, planer, spindle sander, dovetail jig, et...

Daily Update #18: December 17, 2009

What’s happening in the shop for December 17, 2009 . The finish is one the baseball loft bed with a murphy bed on the bottom. Turned out GREAT! Today I’ll put the final touches on it and get pictures posted on my site tomorrow. (see below for some pictures that I have now) I’ll also be working on a Bullock murphy bed and a couple bookcases. For missed video and building pictures see my Current Projects link at or Watch us live:<di...

A journey into the workshop. #91: Shop, and bedroom cleanup. Free woodworking magazines (Local pickup only)

02-05-2016 04:32 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

As I mentioned in a prior post, in an effort to save space in both my shop, and the house, we are digitizing as much of our media as possible. After digging through the many pages of the various magazines, I have found that my favorites hands down are Wood Magazine, and Shop Notes. To the end of the goal of physical media reduction, and the fact that at least Wood Magazine keeps shipping out the same articles recyled year after year with a few new ones sprinkled in to keep you subscribi...

Tablesaw Workstation #15: Well it's been a while

02-02-2010 02:01 AM by JohninSD | 1 comment »

Got busy with a few other things but I’ve finally got back to putting the finishing touches on the workstation. I routed the recess for my router plate, making it the right size for the existing plate I had made out of 3/8” Lexan. This is to use with a DeWalt DW625 router. It is stiff enough to hold the router securely for what I do with it. Here’s a picture of the setup for routing the recess. I used pieces of 3/4” MDF and stuck them to the table with double...

Project Ideas, Hmm... #4: Broken Pews That Need Replacing

02-19-2016 09:28 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

Our church has a pair of 12 foot long pews in the narthex (foyer). They are breaking apart and cannot be easily repaired. For a while I’ve been trying to think of a bench design that would be simple, sturdy and good for the indoors. I know I can’t build a 12 foot long bench. I just don’t have the ability to transport the wood, nor the finished bench. I figure I could build 6 foot benches, but the big question is what to make them look like? Anyone out there have ideas? ...
