Lessons Learned #1: Appeasing the jointer

03-13-2010 01:58 AM by live4ever | 8 comments »

There’s nothing like the sense of accomplishment when you’re able to successfully troubleshoot a problem. I was having some snipe issues with my Ridgid 6” jointer. The last 2” or so of the trailing end was getting gouged. A common issue with jointers, I hear. So I set out to solve the problem. My careful and scientific analysis of the problem (reading the manual and browsing forums) led me to believe the knives were too high relative to the outfeed table. So ...

Extremely Average #81: Call it being paranoid...

03-24-2010 04:51 AM by Ecocandle | 0 comments »

But last night, late last night, actually early in the morning, I became paranoid about a little bit of a screw that remained in the router table top. If you are interested in why I thought that this bit of a screw might ultimately lead to a horrible and tragic death, then feel free to read on. http://bit.ly/dcSmmx

Extremely Average #94: A bit about photography...

04-06-2010 04:00 AM by Ecocandle | 3 comments »

Lumberjocks, I received an email requesting some information on how I got started in the stock photography business. I do like to play, er write, a request. So that is what I did. Back to woodworking tomorrow. http://bit.ly/dAA4GL Brian

Planned Conference Table

04-21-2010 06:18 AM by Brandon Hintz | 1 comment »

Here is a project I am designing and hopefully will soon be building. It is a conference table with some extra bells and whistles. The overall dimensions will be 150” x 54” x 30” There will be 5 power centers which will be raised into place with remote control linear actuators. The large power center will be 2 tier and have a projector mounter on a lazy susan so that the projector can be adjusted. The tops of all the power centers will be beveled so as to allow the power...

My Little Shop Progress #5: Shelving Matters

05-04-2010 03:10 AM by Kerux | 0 comments »

Before I share my work for today. I want to thank you all for your comments. Doing a blog has in a sense, it has given me some motivation to do something everyday or at least try too. Tonight’s offering is simple. With time constraints I really didn’t have time to do everything I wanted to get done… but hey, I am getting things done. The first picture is something I never ever really thought I’d need in the workshop. I’ve always had a shop in the baseme...

The shop #6: moving on up

05-31-2010 04:08 AM by scottb | 5 comments »

I’ve been long in need of a decent drill press. Trying to get a bench top model with decent quill travel – for drilling out pen blanks, without getting another cheap one to replace the VERY cheap one I have. I don’t think I need, or want something so large as a floor model. The capacity seems great, horsepower certainly outstrips the rubberband motor on the $30 POS I bought online (before I knew better). But we’re in a rental, and I shouldn’t bolt anything to the...

Finally.....My Boy Sleeps In His Crib

06-13-2010 02:49 PM by MOJOE | 6 comments »

Well, 2 nights ago, my son Noah finally started sleeping well enough that we didn’t have to take turns watching him throughout the night. He has been having some belly issues, but it appears they are behind us. The wife and I decided to put him in his crib. I must say, I just get warm and fuzzy when I see him sleeping in the crib that I made. Kinda goofy I guess, but it just makes me feel proud, I really think the project came together well, and am really happy to see it being used....

Extremely Average #192: Fun in the Shop

07-13-2010 05:04 AM by Ecocandle | 4 comments »

Hello Everyone, I had fun in the shop tonight, working on my bandsaw resaw jig. A fairly bland post on the blog tonight, though Manfred did get some work. My first chiseling with my Lie-Nelsen chisel was a joy. http://bit.ly/9wl04y Brian
