On Sunday, May 6th at 4pm est/1pm pst, I am going to try a little experiment over at The Wood Whisperer site. We are attempting our first interactive live streaming episode. The episode itself will not be anything fancy. A quick shop tour and a Q&A session via a chat module. You can find all the details on my site: http://thewoodwhisperer.com/?p=175 It should be a very cool, ground-breaking experiment. I see potential for live tool and technique demonstrations in the future. Neato! ...
Well, I’m starting to recover. Many thanks to all of you who have sent me notes of encouragement, prayers and calls. It means a great deal to me. I am still very uncomfortable, but not too bad. It doesn’t hurt much more than it did before as long as I take my medication “as instructed by the Dr.” I got a lecture from my Paramedic brother that the doctors prescribe medication a certain way for a reason. Its easier to keep ahead of the pain than to chase it down. I agree...
Now you women on the site are not allowed to follow this link. I’m trusting you http://www.arealnice.com/pics/WHY_MEN_HAVE_SHOPS.wmv All you guys enjoy!
Hi All, I just found, what seems to me to be a treasure trove of cherry. I just stopped today at a warehouse type resale store and found that they carry all kinds of wood. Mostly redoak but alot of cherry and some maple. Anyway I just wanted to throw this question out there to see if anyone could shed some light on it. One of the piles of cherry they have is probably about 100-150 BF of 4/4 stock. Each board is approx 8’ x 4”. They are selling it for $4.00 a board. The c...

It’s about 9:15 Saturday morning and my wife and I a headed down to Woodcraft to turn pens for our boys over seas. As I was talking with my family about this we ended up with a lot of volunteers. So hopefully this year we can get a lot of these done. I will write about all that went on and how we did. I would also like to put some photos up for everyone to see.
I was reading OKALBERT’s entry “My Workshop #12: We’re making progress on the work bench now” (nice bench!) and he mentions losing time. I’m sure he’s not the only one who does that, as I find myself in that state almost everyday. I’ve been thinking about including a clock in my shop, however part of my enjoyment is NOT knowing the time. If it gets too late my loving wife gently reminds me, and if I’m on a schedule I set an alarm on my cell...
Jan. 22, 2008 With our new “Reviews” Feature at LJ.com being only a week old, the Wixey products have already received five reviews. I just had to do an interview to find out what made this company so special. And so, this morning, I was given the privilege of speaking with Barry Wixey, the man behind the Wixey tools. (photo from www.wixey.com) The Company HistoryPrior to starting the Wixey company, Mr. Wixey designed woodworking machinery for Delta and Dewalt tools. Then...
Saturday was the day. Mr. Dorje came over with the tools and know-how, I provided assistance when able. We spent about seven hours, milling five logs each between six an eight feet long, and about 26” in diameter. The two widest logs we milled into 10/4 slabs, the rest we milled closer to 5/4 planks. The 10/4 is ear-marked for a friend of mine who will use it to make electric guitar bodies. The rest? I’ll figure that out when it is dry and as the need arises. It was a g...
Hi everyone; Since a lot of LJ’s have been following the progress of my ezee-feed project, I wanted to share part of my day today. I hope no-one is put off by my posting this or thinks I’m bragging as I’m really in no position to brag, but it was a very special day for me. (I don’t have a lot of those since embarking on this project). I’ve had a number of orders waiting for the first batch of Ezee-Feed units to come out of the factory, since I stopped makin...
