Fire in the hills

08-18-2015 03:36 AM by Nickdarr | 14 comments »

Unless you have been under a rock, you know there are fires burning throughout the west. I can sit on my porch and smell the smoke and see it in the air. It is sad to see all of the losses that are more devestating than just some board feet of lumber, like lives, homes, and businesses. But, being a woodworker, I am sad over the lumber as well. I have had the opportunity to live throughout the US. I have experienced natural disasters including floods, hurricanes, snowstorms, tornados, and ear...

I made a video of the project and it can be viewed at: I hope you enjoy the video. While you are at it, please check out my other YouTube videos on my channel, paulsmessyworkshop Thanks, Paul

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1610: Keeping Busy

08-26-2015 11:11 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

There are few things that make me feel better than seeing someone enjoying my patterns and making projects from them. After all – the reason I began designing in the first place was so others could learn and have fun with them. I try to make each pattern I create into a mini-lesson, so that people of all skill levels can create the project themselves. Often I get notes or emails asking me if I mind if people change up my designs a little bit. Not only do I not mind it, but I encour...

Klein Solid Body Electric Travel Guitar #2: Add Carbon Stiffeners to the Neck

09-01-2015 08:51 PM by Dave G | 0 comments »

The plans I found recommend stiffening the travel guitar’s neck with carbon fiber. This makes sense because it lightens the neck slightly by substituting carbon for maple and because the travel guitar will want to have as thin a neck as possible without being weakened. This guitar will also use heavy jazz strings so some added stiffening will help the truss rod. Stewart MacDonald carries these. The plans suggested 3/16×1/4×18. I decided to orient the rod with long ...

So Lumber Jocks it is hey

01-11-2007 09:42 PM by Shawn | 11 comments »

My biggest regret…not taking highschool woodworking class seriously enough…my Jr High and Sr. High were both outfitted with GORGOUS tools, great wook selections, and amazing teachers who could have taught me so much…ode to the squandered time of my youth. A year and a half ago I bought a used table saw…it’s not very good…takes so long to set up square for a cut that I struggle with if I shoudn’t just buy a new one…then I remember I have a wife&...

First real Mortise Job

02-23-2007 04:54 AM by Obi | 30 comments »

Today I had the opportunity to use this new Mortising Jig on a Mission Style Table (pictures coming soon) where I did 24 mortises with the jig. Beats the hammer and chisel method, but i still want a mortising machine. I cut all the tenons with my table saw using this sled Since the picture was taken the sled has been modified with t-track, the narrow end fell off, and the groove in the “handle” had been widened to 3/4” from all the tenoning.

I just talked to Shelli DeCou

03-29-2007 04:27 AM by Karson | 4 comments »

I just talked to Shelli about their daughter Rachel. They have not been to any new Dr.s since the blood tests came back negative. They have an appt for next week. I didn’t ask her how mark was, so he will probably be mad thinking we are ignoring him. Serves him right. When I talked to her last week she said that after he got his OK to go back to work, he had a lot to get caught up on. So I’m guessing that shop time is at a premium and computer time is at a minimum.

"Sapience of Sagaciousness" --by RusticWoodArt

06-01-2007 01:54 PM by frank | 2 comments »

Sapience of Sagaciousness ....and so as the lightness of your fog escapes my parting willow lips, i am soon enough transformed into the awakened morning dew, where past participles of running brooks give meaning to a hidden eclipse, just as i now know the heart felt yearning of your imbue…. —-come now along my derived sweetened green of morning tea, as in this our aromatic moments of budded shivered foresights, we are passed along the rising rock walls of a turbulent grey se...

'This Old Crack House' #45: Are you sure your in the right class?

07-07-2007 02:00 PM by Dusty | 24 comments »

The only things that were keeping me from moving into “This Old Crack House” was $80,000, the estimated cost of the new addition, the sale of my existing house, approval to build on the vacant lot, and a design and plans that I could build from. Oh, and did I mention that I was headed for a strike and all indications were it would be a long one? No Problem, I thought to myself. However, it was a problem, but no more than anything else I had faced and tackled with the purchase an...
