Timber and Working with Wood Show 2009

05-22-2009 03:24 PM by Woodfix | 4 comments »

Tomorrow I am off to the 2009 Timber and Working with Wood Expo in Brisbane. This will be my second year. Last year I was a little lost amongst the technical and wood exhibits. I think this year I will be a little bit more at home. I am hoping to catch some of the demonstration and maybe even try out some equipment. I am going to take a notebook to keep a track of my observations. Specifically, I am hoping to get some serious low down on Thickness Planners. At this point, my workshop...

More of a journal than a blog, I'd say. Alternately, introductions are annoying

06-09-2009 07:38 AM by PatrickOOOMazing | 5 comments »

I have heard that there are people of whom all manner of things will go awry for, chances are I have met plenty of them, of which none have stopped to share their story. I would suggest too that I am one of these people. At 23, I have experienced a significant amount of strife (if for a moment I may permit myself to play a martyr, more strife than you), all of which has led me here. I don’t particularly wish to start this off with such an ominous tone, however I have long since come ...

Medicine Cabinet #3: Door Panels

06-15-2009 07:50 PM by Sandking | 0 comments »

Got some shop time today. Routed out the back of the doors, sanded everything down for painting and picked up the panel material at Lowes. FYI Lowes will cut the Plexiglas for free. Home Depot doesn’t offer that service at all (as a matter of fact you probably couldn’t find someone to even tell you where the Pexi is at Home Depot!!!) I had them rough cut the panels for me so I can just trim them on the table saw. I purchased a $4 plastic cutting knife to make the cross cuts. ...

another kick back story

07-03-2009 01:03 AM by sval229 | 5 comments »

“You’re not ready to go back in the shop yet.” Yep, heard it from my doc., my wife, the kids (all grown), and my physical therapist. I had rotator cuff surgery on my right (dominant) shoulder in early May and I’m fortunate enough to have a lot of movement back without a lot of pain. Well I started off with a bandsaw box when my arm was still in a sling. No problems so far. I’m ready to move on to bigger and better.My daughter was looking for a dresser so I fig...

Rosewood at an unbelievable price #3: It's here

08-27-2009 05:04 AM by bibb | 8 comments »

OK the cat is out of the bag. I received the Rosewood on Friday. It took me two days to unload, sort and sticker it all. I had hoped to keep this under wraps for a few more days while I get my act together but oh well, lets rock and roll.Man is this stuff beautiful. I would like to ask you all to be patient with me. I am spending my days looking for a real job and filling orders by night.MMH has been a great help getting me set up on Pay Pal so I can receive electronic payments from all of yo...

Just for Fun... #5: Strong to the finish

09-14-2009 11:38 PM by littlecope | 4 comments »

There hasn’t been a lot to report on this lately. We’re talking finishing here and it’s pretty droll stuff.If you recall we left off hereNow my Dad had a great suggestion regarding the prominent “stripes” on the lid, which are, of course, merely leftover stain in the hollows of the contour. He said, “You ought to paint them. Paint them black. Shiny black..” And so I didI actually painted them again the following morning after this. The first coat just...

A journey into the workshop. #12: Moving the table saw, and sticking the bench top tools to the wall...

09-30-2009 05:21 AM by dbhost | 4 comments »

Just a short note about the progress on my shop made today… #1. The lumber for the fence got stacked more neatly to the side, in a much taller stack. This proved to be a less than brilliant idea, but it is what it is… #2. The table saw, and workbench got moved into their almost final positions in this workshop. Which means bench behind table saw to act as outfeed support, and both rotated 90 degrees so that oufeed from the bench can get picked up by the craft bench. #3.Th...
