Dust Collection #2: Finished Already

1435 days ago by HokieMojo | 8 comments »

Sorry this component of my dust collection system didn’t get broken down into steps better, but I was juggling so many things at once (workshop and family related) that I couldn’t get good photos and keep up with the posts. Here is the dust collector that I built from a recycled AC blower unit and how I came up with the design. I had a perfect spot high on an empty wall. It would be out of the way, but central enough to get good air circulation. Here is my planned location. ...

Butcher Block Kitchen Table #12: Nearing completion of the top (finally...)

1397 days ago by Jimi_C | 6 comments »

When we last left off, I had milled all the pieces for the top. Not long after that, I had glued them up in groups of 5-6 pieces each, and had run those through the planer to make them all a consistent thickness (just under 1”, maybe 15/16”). Due to a lot of personal stuff going on, I didn’t have a lot of shop time for the next month or so, but I’ve finally gotten some time back and have made more progress. Earlier this week, I glued up the smaller sections into t...

Making Progress ( I think!)

1385 days ago by nobuckle | 2 comments »

I was up before dawn this morning. 5:30 AM EST is too early in the morning to wake up with an unfinished project on your mind. You’ve probably been there too. Anyway, I got out to the shop about 7:30 or so and decided to finish attaching my left-hand table saw extension to the right side of the saw. The cast iron extension did not have any mounting holes drilled into on the left side so I had to take some time to lay them out and drill them. I wasn’t able to use my drill pres...

Alaska Jim's Comments of the Day #29: Enjoying the simple things.........

1374 days ago by Jim Bertelson | 24 comments »

This is not everybody’s simple thing, but it is mine. Some like the sound of the card scraper or tuning up a plane. I think I might come from another planet or something, I really get pleasure in strange simple things. Today, I had 30 minutes to spend in the shop, before I went to the office.The morning was already busy…, seeing patients in the hospital, etc. So I did glueups on some partially completed fixtures for my project table, a couple of one foot long fen...

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

1363 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

1348 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

1334 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

1320 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...

Yesterday was a great day in the shop :) My day started by PMing my LJ’s buddy Todd Clippinger with a question about an upcoming project, as I left to go get new knives for my jointer :) and get the old ones sharpened the phone rang and I was unable to get it :( After getting the new knives in the jointer I looked an it was Todd who had called :) I called him back in which we spent almost an hour discussing projects, shop space, tools and efficiency He had given me a lot of food for...
