So I had to wait another day after re glueing my palm box back together. After I got the clamps and tape off, this is what I was faced with. I don’t like sanding glue. Ok, one step back, now two steps forward. After Re sanding the lid, several times, I have everything attached and working again. There is still a hair line fracture visible after the clean up. The lid is working much better. It even stops halfway back instead of flopping all the way open. I...
I have two weeks before starting at NBSS. I have been kicking back to be honest before school starts however I wanted to still take on a project that bring me right up untill day one. I wanted something small, yet complex and involved.My wife loves her makeup and likes to agonize over it for a long time like a finish. Not that she needs it but its her thing. So I thought what more of a perfect piece to make then a period style dressing mirror. I am basing this one on a federal one from Bosto...

Every four years we get an extra day. I never really thought about it before, it really is something that is kind of special. Those of you who read regularly have heard me wish from time to time for that evasive 48 hour day.

Today we all received the gift of an additional 24 hours. When you think about it a bi...

I read “Workbenches: From Design And Theory To Construction And Use” and went by Peach State Lumber Supplies in Kennesaw, GA. The first made me realize that woodworking is so similar to fly fishing that I am surprised that there isn’t more fish talk on this website. Both have seen their respective glory days come and go. They both were once the practical application of the art. They a...
As most of you know, our long time member and friend Mike has passed away this week. He has a funeral today and LumberJocks home page will display his projects in the Daily Top 15 section today as a tribute to him (thanks for this idea, Rick) Rest in Peace, Mike. You will be missed.
I lived outside of philadelphia or Philly as most call it for a chunk of my life and I always liked the city and have a soft spot of the businesses there. So when I got interested into saws and realized the biggest name in saws. . . . Disston was made there I went looking online any references but never got around to visiting what’s left. As it turns out some of the builds still stand and it was quite close. This past weekend with nicer weather and already being in the area I stoppe...
