I should have mentioned in my previous blog that this is my first time bloging on any website EVER… so please bear with me. I dont know how to respond to comments directly to the people that post them. For now, let me say thank you to all the comments. Its nice to hear positive comments from people other than your family and friends. Since I dont know how to respond to people individualy, I will post them here. I use Titebond III glue on all my projectsThe vase is 14 inches tall and ...

Got my Grizzly ultimate bandsaw

03-14-2010 05:02 AM by Tim29 | 8 comments »

Today we went to Springfield to get a new Grizzly 14” ultimate bandsaw. I have to say that the Grizzly showroom is basically like Disneyland for us Lumberjocks. Everywhere you look its like “OOH I want to try that” or “Hey I could use that for project x”. I know that this is just a personal taste thing but I thought the best thing I saw was the face frame clamp table from kreg. its a huge table with pnuematic clamps that are on a sliding bar. Of course to use thi...

Nervous anticipation...

03-25-2010 08:33 AM by ackychris | 1 comment »

Whew, I’m just finishing drawing up a plan for a simple (looking) end table, and it’s pushing my design chops to the limit. I’m excited to start it, because it’ll be the most involved, precise woodworking project I’ve done so far. I just wish I had a better feel for the strength of hardwoods—I’m going to use the thinnest parts I think I can get away with, and count on wood’s usual ability to impress me with its strength. I can’t wait! ...

A little introduction

04-07-2010 05:11 AM by GeneL | 11 comments »

I was surprised at the number of messages I got just signing up. So, I though I would write a little introduction. Woodworking is a hobby for me. I started out refinishing furniture and then tried my hand at making a little. For a while I really liked wood turning especially bowls and boxes. But mostly its always been something to take my mind off of my job. About 12 years ago I got really bored and decided what I needed to do was build a house. Do it all myself, that would keep me...

Bed #6: Hey look, it looks like a bed now

05-18-2010 04:40 AM by tyskkvinna | 8 comments »

Started off by sanding and finishing the other frame part. And then.. putting things together! O.o Did the other side.. Like my support for that piece? Couple slabs of 8/4 maple on a milk crate. Hey, it worked. I had to fiddle with this a fair amount because I really had no idea what I was doing. Magically, it worked. Also – the frame is FAR sturdier than I was anticipating. Awesomesauce. The brackets are really snug (snug enough that I had to re-screw a couple spots so...

What Do You Use to Sharpen With

06-29-2010 07:37 PM by velo_tom | 15 comments »

Using Oil Stones Again, Water Stones Now Stowed Away Ollie gave an excellent review of Norton Water Stones and I posted most of the comments below at that review. I think perhaps it was a bit out of place there and offer my apologies to Ollie. I just wanted to present some of my experiences with water stones out in public in case there are others out there that are getting a bit disillusioned with using them. I’ll preface this with, “the vast majority of woodworkers will disagree with...

Mikros Kosmos #9: The sawmill is up and running....

07-14-2010 05:09 AM by tyskkvinna | 13 comments »

I got a very pleasant surprise today! I do not know if the person who sent it wants to be ID’d or not – but thank you. :) These pieces were all planed to 1/8” and had a destiny waiting for them… Halfway there. Can you guess? In addition to the wood I received today (I did not cut it all!!) I also used a few pieces of 1/8” exotic I had, which was waiting for just this project. Thought you’d get a kick out of this. I’m sure you all are...
