What’s happening in the shop for July 2, 2010. Doing some detail work on Blake’s murphy bed, bookcases, and desk. Starting a Batman Bed. Check out the crown cap on the Current Projects page and in the video. If there is any interest I’ll talk more about it. For missed video and building pictures see my Current Projects link at wwbeds.com or poggyskids.com. Watch us live:
I recently posted a question about bandsaws in one of the forums and I received tons of great information and advice. The forthcoming and helpful nature of all the guys and gals on this site never ceases to amaze me. Anyway, I stumbled upon a store here in Nashville that I was completely unaware of…General Industrial Supply. I decided to stop in after work yesterday and boy am I glad I did. I picked up a 12” JET bandsaw from their “scratch & dent” area and I only f...
I wasen’t sure where to put this little stroke of luck so I decided to make a short little blog about it. Long story short I wanted to try my hand at planes. At first I felt like I totally wasted my money purchasing 2 cheap ones and was about ready to put them in file 13. Well after a little studying, and reading up on a bunch of material I discovered not only the usefulness of planes, but how much I have grown fond of them (I know its weird but for some reason they are becoming my favo...
I went up to the Folk’s house once again last week to mow the lawn… but it didn’t need it. We’ve had very little rain and are in the “Dog Days” of summer when the grass slows down anyway…So, to pass the time, I combed through the wood stashes that are there… It seems I’ve inherited a pretty large supply of woods (at least for me!).Aside from the pallet full of cribbing blocks, there are various other piles, like this one which is mostly Oa...
Our fellow LJ Diane is auctioning rid off some lovely carving books on another web site, one that I admit I don’t understand, and had a link to it here. I made a serious mistake and thought we had agreed on my getting the books. The misunderstanding was entirely mine. I can only blame the fact that my insomnia ha been quite bad lately and I hadn’t slept in almost three days. Diane, I in no way intended to upset you, and would rather close my shop than be a disturbance to any...
I’ve written an article about the dearth of woodworking shows on television, and why. I’ll post part 2 tomorrow. ———————- I’ll come right out and say it: I like a lot of what is on television. It seems a lot of us do. More people are involved in their favorite shows than ever before. So why are so many folks are ashamed to admit that? While in casual conversation about T.V., an obligatory response is often, “Oh, I really don’t wat...
I received a conformation late last night. Sorry for the delay.Nov 6th has been reserved. Dewitt Memorial Building315 W Washington StDewitt, MI 48820 I read “Wood trade” would that make this a swap meet? I am reposting KJuly’s response to bring it back tothe fore front. Now we just need a head count and start time. Come on MI LJ’s Lets make this our Christmas get together
HAHA, got your attention. No, the Incra didn’t REALLY screw up my table saw, it just created a new hurdle to overcome. (Note here this will be set-back/screw up number five.) I have an Incra TS-LS 32 that is probably the best investment I have in my shop. If Incra made a circular saw fence, I would own it too. (Might not need a table saw if they did that.) But, this entry is not to praise the Incra, it is to scold the Incra, and all of it’s micro-adjustable goodness. So,...
Today marks our fifth week in North Carolina, and we’re just about settled in. I am in the middle of organizing the garage a bit so we can more easily get both vehicles in it for the winter, by installing 1’x10’ shelves on the walls so the floor along the walls can be uncluttered. I’ll finish that today, and finish getting shelves in the guest bedroom closet and hang the rest of Veronika’s embroideries. This should just about finish off my “Honey Do” list in the house, as it stands today, ...
My son Trey wanted to make his girlfriend a bookstand. I told him that I would help him make it. We spent a Saturday working on it and had a great time. He found a pattern on the internet, I had some leftover oak and all the other supplies. I took several short videos with a digital camera and later decided to make a little video out of it. I wish I had used a better camera but but it turned out pretty neat. You can check him out here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOZ6i4NwecwI enjoy ha...
