Well, here goes!Boy was this an interesting process. I don’t own a video camera and so I had to use the built-in iSight on my MacBook. That means that I had to walk around holding my laptop, trying to watch where I was walking, balance the computer in my hands, think, and chew gum all at the same time! I purposely didn’t tidy up the shop prior to filming. 1) I was taking a break from a project in process and 2) well, this is probably its “natural” state. Hopefully ...
well, now, wasn’t today just an exciting one for MsDebbieP?!!!! ! Yes, today I had the pleasure of meeting with Linda and Paul Fulcher, Publishers of the Canadian Woodworking Magazine. Canadian Woodworking is one of our gracious sponsors who have supported our Summer Woodworking Awards! (Two of our Award Recipients will be receiving free one-year subscriptions to this super magazine.) Thank you, thank you, thank you! Linda and Paul took some time out of their busy schedule tod...
So my wife is letting me ask Santa for a mini/midi lathe this Christmas! I get to graduate from the less than perfect setup (but great capacity) of my shopsmith. I’ve started scouting for deals, but I’ll still have to wait for my new toy no matter when it arrives. ;( After several magazine articles over the past several months or so, I’ve had my eye on the 10x14 Jet, and the slightly greater capacity 12x16 Rikon. Should I keep debating, variable speed capability vs cap...
Dis-Membered Barkin’ on a Pine Slab ....ended my day the other evening removing some more bark from a pine slab I’m trying to get dried out, in the faster then usual manner since this is one I want to start workin’ on around January. Much of my time spent outside now is divided between cutting new trees for next year, cutting slabs for future furniture and ‘wood art’ that has to be processed for drying a year to two years down the road. While then finding the ...
Here is the MIDI Workstation in its new home and in use. It really does make a difference in my playing. The only thing I would have done differently is make the open left cabinet 19”. I made the dimensions based on my previous desk. I wanted to use a my stereo to power some monitors but it doesn’t really fit anywhere. Oh well. Since this project is modular, I could always build another cabinet and make it 19”. I should add that initially I thought the desk was too square...
I received an email and as I clicked through some of the information. I ran across this page. It’s for a Catskill Woodnet They are pushing sustainable forest sawmills and artisans. You can see who the members are to purchase lumber etc and also sign up for e-newsletters.
One of the first things I did here after finding this site was to post a project I had designed in Sketchup for a new TV stand to match my entertainment center. You can find the original forum post here: http://lumberjocks.com/topics/1522 I thought it might be interesting if I detailed the evolution of this project to show how listening to good advice can drastically change the way you have something originally designed. We had a large 65” TV we were going to replace with a newe...
As of right now, I have completed exactly one woodworking project. I’ve restored tools to working condition, sure, but only one time thus far have I put steel to wood and create something. However, now I have tons of projects flying through my head. I want to build a simple box, just as an excuse to cut dovetails and get used to them. I have my 2×12 bench challenge. I’ve got tons upon tons of ideas flowing through my head. Honestly, I’ll probably forget most of th...
Kids are a wonderful thing, but grand kids, now that’s really something special. We had my daughter and her kids over for Easter and we had an Easter egg hunt . . . as you can see from the photo, I don’t have a soft spot for this little cutie! See the LUMBERJOCK BUNNY! So what did you do over Easter?!
April 15, 2008 In March of this year I attended a wood show in Toronto and had the privilege of not only speaking with Rob Cosman but creating a ribbon of wood. Today I had the honour of interviewing Rob and learning about his woodworking history and plans for the future. The History Rob was born and raised into the woodworking world. His father, a shop teacher at the time of Rob’s birth, became a contractor when Rob was about two years of age. Rob’s earliest memory ...
