Oliver 232 restoration #8: Wiring DONE!!

1095 days ago by MedicKen | 2 comments »

I spent a few hours yesterday doing the final wiring. I decided to go with 1/2” water-tight conduit for the connections inside the cabinet. My thinking was if the conduit is waterproof it “should” keep the dust out as well. Only time will tell. I also used the conduit on the outside of the cabinet as well but I am not sure I like the look. I will leave it for now and see if it grows on me or not. If not, I may replace it with 1/2” EMT and paint the conduit to hide it a...

NARRA BOXES #1: The 2x4x6 box

1081 days ago by BertFlores58 | 7 comments »

In reference to my post in the forum section about Narra Parquet ... Target I have set is 40 boxes out of those recycled parquet. It is really a big effort to put these small pieces into a better look. Hard to meet the 40 but let us see the progress. To this point, I finished 10 pcs of 4×6 x 2 boxes and 6 pcis of 6×6 x 2 boxes. THE 4 X 6 BOXES. The challenge was to make a pinned hinges and the simple butt joint The pin I use is 3 mm in diameter which is nearly 1/8 ...

Looking to share and recieve information from owners of Harbor Frieght Lathes #2

1068 days ago by DocSavage45 | 3 comments »

There are a few of us in LJ’s who are owners of the Harbor Frieght Lathes. My last posting was more than 2 weeks ago? Seems like yesterday. Have you experienced any difficulties with your lathe? How would you compare it to other laths you have experience using? What was the reason you bought your lathes? I have a small budget, and the features compared to the price were really good. I bought mine on-line and delivery was timely. some folks in our previous discussion have a store...

Wood gloat

1022 days ago by joey bealis | 1 comment »

I have a wood gloat. A neighbor of mine is going to build a new house in town and purchased a piece property that had a bunch of pecan trees on it. He ended up needing 4 of them cut down and i was able to get what i wanted from the trees before people came and got firewood. So i now have enough pecan to turn bowls for a few years. If anyone is in the central Mississippi area and would like some give me a post. There are a few more logs not in the pictures!

Just an update with a little philosophy thrown in

976 days ago by Woodbutchery | 5 comments »

First off, a confession. I don’t post every project I do on LJ. While I don’t know if it makes me a pariah or selfish, I don’t feel another shop cabinet, another set of cabinets, or my latest jig I’ve create is worth noting as a blog or a project post. Plus, I’m lazy, so I don’t feel the need to snap a picture of everything I do. That having been said, I have a project I’m posting soon; coat hanger racks. They’re easy, functional, and u...

Woodworking is more than a Hobby

961 days ago by David | 10 comments »

Last night as I lay in bed I started to think about why I enjoy woodworking. Somewhere I read that one day spent in the shop is better than a week of fishing. When I do this I always seem to go back to the days that my father spent teaching me what he knew of the craft. As we worked, he would tell stories of his youth and working with his father so many years past. Eighty years ago the country was gripped by a depression much worse than we know today. Even as a ten year old boy my father ...

Remember the box build between Charles Neil and Sumpfy?

945 days ago by DocSavage45 | 5 comments »

Thouight I would post an FYI for those who followed the box build and LJ’s review? Charles posted his box on ebay for auction and raised some great money. He has a mastering Woodorking program that we can view, if interested? Currently he is showing/ has shown how to make the box. There is even a supplier to provide materials with some pre work in milling. What I just found out, and this fits me, due to my time constaitsis, that Charles and Sherri have put together a video/dvd...

LJ Fun #1: Lumberjocks meeting #1

932 days ago by Schwieb | 8 comments »

It was a real pleasure to meet a fellow LJ, Troy (Horologist) and his wife Cathy, {taking this last minute thought photo), recently. They live in Melrose, which is more than a little trek from here. It was a New Years Eve party and we didn’t have too much chance to talk shop but we had a good time anyway. It was great to meet you and I hope to catch up with you and your Dad soon. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
