Snow in the Lowcountry.

02-13-2010 08:54 AM by Ryan Fenters | 8 comments »

I havent seen snow that stuck to the ground here in The Lowcountry in SC since 1989 right after Hurricane Hugo. But this evening we got about 4-6inches on the ground. Pretty Awesome if I must say. One story from tonight my 3yr old wanted to build a snow man. So I tried to throw something together and she said “Daddy, that looks like a snow turtle, and I was like I’m sorry I dont built these often”.

When will I learn to say "no"?

02-24-2010 12:44 AM by richgreer | 26 comments »

Just got a call from a friend of a friend of a friend. He would like 6 bottle stoppers that he can present as gifts to some co-workers. I’m retired. I’m done with the pressure of deadlines and keeping the customer happy. Nonetheless, I can make bottle stoppers (actually they are pretty quick and easy) and I quoted him a relatively high price. He agreed and now I have a deadline and the fear that the customer may not be happy. My fears are probably unfounded. I ...

Two things today, one: I used my gripper rip off and it works fine, 2: had a visitor

03-04-2010 12:35 AM by jockmike2 | 12 comments »

First of all David (Patron) I used the Woodline USA adjustable push block and as far as I’m concerned it’s worth the 16.00 bucks. I had to take it apart and put some pastewax on it to make it slide better but once I did that it worked fine. Next I had a fellow jock stop by yesterday, David Craig, and he gave me some ideas on CLEANING my shop and ORGANIZING it, don’t know where he got the idea it needed that. Anyway, in return I taught him all I knew about sharpening lathe to...

Building a mahogany jewelry box with Frank Klausz

03-23-2010 03:26 PM by Jon Spelbring | 3 comments »

Wow, what a weekend! I spent last Saturday and Sunday learing from Frank Klausz. It was just a 2 day class, but I think we managed to pack a lot into it. Frank is one funny, funny guy! So, here’s my impressions of the class – plus and minus, and a recap of what I learned (at least I think I learned). Overall, the class was excellent. We had 15 students, with varying skill levels. The first part of day one was some background on Frank, and some good tech info on wood, wo...

Hi Cody I am a tile setter who recently got into woodworking as a hobby over the last year and I’m not in to making anything to big or fancy really just some little projects around the house as well as remodeling my home. I have been having some trouble finding good hard wood and the prices are really high. With the current economy I thought prices would be down a little but I guess not. Well anyways so far I have been getting my wood from the local home depot and ace hardware but I wa...

Trestle Table for Dining Room #5: God & Nature conspiring against me...

05-30-2010 09:28 PM by scopemonkey | 1 comment »

Unfortunately, it has been a while since I did any meaningful work on the table. I was hoping to take the top to a friends workplace to use their widebelt sander, but a family tragedy occurred and I didn’t want to impose myself during their time of grief. My daytime job has me working weekends and it has been raining non-stop. Oh, so is life. Since the last update, I hand planed the ends flush to the top and hand sawed them flush to the edges, then routed a roundover profile aroun...

Just for Fun... #22: Short and Sweet...

06-27-2010 11:00 PM by littlecope | 18 comments »

Quick one today, Folks!!I took delivery of my new Jointer yesterday!! It took me about an hour to set up… most of that was spent “Reading and Understanding” the safety instructions found in the Owners Manual. I must admit, I sorta glazed over the “How to Plug In” and “How to operate the On-Off Switch” sections… :)Anyway, after an hour I had it screwed down and ran a board through for testing purposes…It worked perfectly right out of the bo...

Not quite in the workshop... #21: So what actually got done?

07-12-2010 05:39 PM by dbhost | 2 comments »

On Friday, I posted a list of projects I was planning on attacking this weekend… It was overly ambitious, and completely unattainable being married and having a wife with other ideas of how my time should be spent… So what actually got done? #1. Run by Lowes and grab 4 more sheets of R-Max R5 foil backed 3/4” foam board (to finish garage door insulation project). Some 2×12’s for a scaffolding deck, and a single piece of Hardi Soffit, no holes, Cedar Mill texture. Done, more ...
