Hi LumberJocks,I am finishing a piece and doing the sanding all by hand. Usually I use a sander for this and have had a nice finish when all said and done. But after watching and reading some, I am being told that hand sanding gets the best results. I have finished about half the project by hand sanding (boy does my arm feel like it’s going to fall off) and am not seeing any difference. I was looking for your input on how you guys and gals go about deciding whether to hand sand or m...

Weather Station: The Next Generation #1: Taming the Templates

04-12-2009 06:29 AM by newTim | 2 comments »

This is a simple project that is made more so with a couple of templates. In fact I would not know how to line things up accurately without them. I use two kinds of templates, one to line up drilling and a couple to space the wings. For pictures and previous discussion check out my project page and blog series. I start by laying out the design on graph paper and tape that to 1/4” masonite cut to the same size as the inner top and bottom. I then sandwiched an identical size pi...

So you want to own a sawmill.....

05-01-2009 10:04 PM by sw_iowa_sawyer | 4 comments »

When I was a kid I had a paper route and I saved up all my money and bought a little tiny black and white T.V. I would love to stay up late and watch old cliff hanger movies; it was always exciting waiting for the next installment to see what would happen in the story line. I thought I would try a cliff hanger of sorts for my blog, partly because I hope to make it interesting and partly because I have a regular job and have to fit the sawing in when I can. So I will start the saga now with...

From Logs To Lumber #3: got some hard maple and cherry logs today

05-20-2009 03:36 AM by alaskan79 | 2 comments »

Today was a good day for logs. Got 3 nice Hard Maple logs the butt log is 20 inchs on the small end and is 13 feet long and got 2 shorter logs from the same tree that are each 10 feet long. Also got four cherry logs from the same cherry tree. The tree was dead and the sap wood had rotted away. It was still standing and when I cut it down it was in good shape. Also the same tree had a burl on it about 4 inchs square and I cut it off, it had some really wild looking grain. Looks like I might ha...

30 in30 (Projects/Days) #4: Day #7 - Projects 3-12

06-08-2009 12:19 AM by Russel | 7 comments »

Okay, it’s Day 7, the end of the first week of the 30 projects in 30 days challenge. As of today, I’m a bit ahead of schedule, but for a reason. My daughter and grand daughter will be flying in from Arizona on Friday for the first time in about 2 years. So, I’m expecting my shop time to be diminished a bit. I’ve got 5 pens (actually 3 pens and 2 pencils) which are pretty straightforward and fortunately don’t require a lot of shop time. Being a novice turne...

Grumbles from the shop #7: Another gallery done gone

06-14-2009 11:15 PM by dennis mitchell | 23 comments »

Tomorrow I set out to pick up my furniture from another store that has closed up. In the ten years I’ve been building furniture I’ve had my furniture in four different galleries. All of which have shut their doors. One of them more than once. This one lasted a year. The hard part is knowing how much heart the owners of these stores have invested. Let alone money and time. I see this and I know the American dream has died. What is the average? One out of ten small businesses survi...
