Hi friends I just wanted to let you all know that I was privileged to be selected by Greg and his wife, the owners of Oregon Burls to receive a beautiful and unique slab. This was in response to a contest Greg had on LJ’s. Due to work and weather it’s been a few weeks since Greg notified me that I had won his contest. As a matter of fact it was when David and Rick from LJ’s were visiting. I was really surprised that I was selected, but so happy...

Well i started off research by examining the furniture we have (as well as friends’). There are several fun tutorials on instructables.Then i moved on to the recommendations from my 1st post in this series. I really like the idea of a morris-couch. It may end up looking similar to the project post on rockler’s site. We went to Half Price books and bought some random furniture books and a couple of upholstery guides. As soon as it gets warmer i plan on getting out in the garage ...

Low VOC and Safety

01-18-2011 11:00 PM by Brian Havens | 1 comment »

(I copied the text hereafter from my latest journal entry so that my buds at Lumberjocks would not miss this safety issue.) It is hard to read an article about finishing wood, these days, without some mention of “low VOC’s”. These articles vaguely characterise these low VOC finishes as somehow good for humans. It reminds me of those Life cereal commercials that I grew up with: “What’s that?” “Some lo...

Block list Crap

01-31-2011 02:47 AM by Manitario | 80 comments »

So, I’ve been on this site for just over 200 days. Despite several of the more contentious discussions that have happened on this site, I have, to my knowledge always been respectful and courteous. I sign on today and read a discussion and scroll down to the bottom only to find that that person has blocked me (I’m looking at you Hobomonk). What gives??? What kind of stupid system is this that random people can block others for unknown reasons? In a public forum in which we are mak...

Old dreams

02-09-2011 06:36 PM by toolchap | 16 comments »

The toolmaking part of my life comes in fits and starts. Over the last year I have built 3 planes for a client and it was a pleasure and an experience. Last week, yes Div, believe it or not, I finished an oak postbox for a client and really enjoyed the simplicity of the project. I had fun designing my own hinge and figuring out how it was going to work. I never do scale drawings although I might do an outline scale on a scrap of 4×4 paper to see if I am heading in the right directi...

Popular Woodworking Magazine (who have the rights?) is that really ok?

02-18-2011 09:00 PM by mafe | 65 comments »

Popular Woodworking Magazinebe careful with readers contributions, ‘Tricks of the trade’. Hi LJ’s. I have an experience I want to share with you; unfortunately I can’t say it was a good one, but not the end of the world either… All of you, who know me here on LJ, probably know I’m not a complaining kind of person. Some months ago I was contacted by Popular Woodworking Magazine (PWM), they asked if they could bring one of my posts here on LJ in the magazi...

finally my new shop #2: starting to take shape!

02-28-2011 07:47 PM by wilterbeast | 1 comment »

There comes a time in a persons life when you decide if your going to be a cup half full kinda person or a cup half empty kinda person. Before my divorce my shop set on my 2.5 acre place and was in my barn. I had 2 big windows and in the evening i could watch the deer come out to feed in the field behind my house. My fishing gear sat in the corner of my shop and when the mood struck i could drop everything and head to the nieghbors pond and catch some of the biggest blue gill and bass you ca...

8x12 Shed Spring 2011 #2: Day 2 wall framing begins

03-25-2011 12:19 AM by JonH | 0 comments »

On day 2, we got into laying out the walls. We went with 2 foot centers on this shed. Last year we did a shed that was 16” on center, framed just like a house and the thing ended up being referred to as an above ground bomb shelter. It was too expensive and was overkill. We also did not utilize a double top plate on top of the walls and we did not use a full header also. I must remind myself this is a simple shed, not a house! We got most of the way with the walls today, tomorrow ...
