Open Mouth - Insert Foot

10-30-2009 05:42 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 30 comments »

My Tongue Is Just Long Enough to Hang Me I was looking at a job tonight and a family member of the potential client stopped by. I kind of know the family and the visitor as well. I recognized the lady but could not remember her name. I said “Oh HI! I haven’t seen you for a while. Oh and you’re having another kid?” “Nope.” This is not good when you are trying to sell a job.

End Table - Prototype #1: Prototype for upcoming Television Stand

11-16-2009 09:09 AM by Sleff | 1 comment »

So I’ve been planning on building a decent mahogany tv stand for about a year now. I drew up numerous plans and picked out tons of wood from my old stockpile. I had the dimensions down so that it would fit my (much too large and heavy) old school tvas well as 3 peripherals right at the top. Also lots of storage below for whatever. Work became unbelievably busy last year, as well as my wife getting pregnant and my twinswere born 7 months ago. Wow. So needless to say I didn̵...

Over the 2 year mark

02-01-2010 09:13 PM by aaronmolloy | 3 comments »

Allot has changed since I joined lumberjocks 2 years ago I had high hopes of getting an apprentischip in carpentry/joinery and just before christmas I got it so the future’s looking good a year of investment in tools and workshop. The last few months has been a bit hecktic but I hope to be giving a weekly post starting in a week or two. So thanks to all the lumberjocks who inspired me over the past few years

St Louis Wood Show 2010 - Saw Stop Live Demo

02-13-2010 04:34 PM by tooldad | 3 comments »

Just an FYI. At the St Louis Wood Show, there will be saw stop demos at 1:30, 3:30 and 5:30 Saturday and Sunday. Show is a little on the small end, probably economy related. On the other hand, sales staff doesn’t seem to be as pushy this year.

Extremely Average #53: Henry Wood Detective Agency: The New Office

02-24-2010 05:46 AM by Ecocandle | 3 comments »

Henry pulled out of the drive, the book resting on the passenger seat, and the Four Knights, ‘I Get So Lonely’, playing on the radio. The steering wheel was cold, really cold, and Henry didn’t even notice. His gloves in his pocket, all warm and napping, just waiting to get in the game were quite content where they were. In his mind, he was laying out the cards which had been dealt him, looking them over, and searching for patterns. It was obvious, that at this point, his hand was weak...

Mystery tools; non-woodworking

03-23-2010 08:13 PM by YorkshireStewart | 17 comments »

Here’s a couple of pictures of just a few from a box of tools that have just been donated to the museum where I do voluntary work. They’re mostly in cast brass. My thoughts were that they’re for decorative plaster work. Can anyone confirm? Any other ideas?Tiles are 6” to give a guide as to sizes.

Just finishing up my latest projects

04-21-2010 02:39 AM by 76winger | 0 comments »

Since the first of the year I’ve turned my first two bowls from curly maple and made a custom pen & pencil set with case out of Mahogany. I’ll be posting pics soon! I’ve also received a donation of several Walnut logs (saved from a friends firewood pile!), that I believe are going to make some excellent bowl, platter and vessel blanks. The price was right (free!) so they’ll certainly make for good turning practice as well as nice final products (at least I hope!).
