Where'dyagethattshirt? or Where did you get that t-shirt?

01-10-2007 10:38 AM by Don | 3 comments »

Look what arrived in the mail on Monday. I ordered two T-shirts (only wearing one in this pic) just before Christmas and they’ve already arrived. Great quality, perfect fit. and really, I’ve had some friends ask me where I got it. Great opportunity to tell them about TimberJocks (I have to translate for my Aussie friends).

'Shop Time

02-22-2007 09:24 AM by Philip Edwards | 7 comments »

Hi FolksIt’s been one of those months…....I get to spend lots of time in my workshop making things, having a great time and just enjoying woodwork. But that has been because my day job has been very quiet. And of course, when the day job is quiet you then spend most of the time worrying about the mortgage payment.The last week has been the opposite – work is now in overdrive and ‘shop time has been minim al (especially as I’m fried when I get home). But hey, at l...

"Rumblings of a Livid Imagination" --by RusticWoodArt #2: "Gifted Imaginations"

03-28-2007 01:52 PM by frank | 3 comments »

”Gifted Imaginations” ....imagination is the fruit of seeing beyond the point of where other’s stop and wait, the place we all come to when reality calls out and warns us, that to proceed on in the face of what we have been told, will most assuredly lead us to fall off the face of the earth…. —-”i say to you and have you not heard that the world is flat”, to go on this way is only a fools drunken walk, and what of the other’s that will fol...

"Thoughts on Wood Joinery" --by RusticWoodArt

04-30-2007 03:34 PM by frank | 2 comments »

Thoughts on Wood Joinery And so I thought I would write a little on the subject of: How do you join that wood? In what I am writing here I mean no disrespect to any workers of wood by calling some way as better or an-other way as lesser, but I am only trying to show that if one will pay attention to or take heed to their own calling, then the way will open up before them as to what works best in their attention to woodworking detail. —-been there, done that….hammered and air...

Thorsen Table #5: Another tease

05-31-2007 11:30 PM by cheller | 1 comment »

Obi wanted to see the cherry so here it is. I got very little sleep last night not because I was working on the table but simply insomnia. I’ve got a work project that isn’t going well which was part of the reason I think. Anyway because of that I called in (well actually emailed in) that I’d be working from home today. As a result I was able to take some time mid-day and get the first coat of finish on the table. I chose amber shellac to give a little richness ...

Standup Paddleboard Paddles #2: Shaping the blade

08-09-2007 12:59 AM by Bob Babcock | 12 comments »

A couple of pictures of glueing up the edges from last night and then todays lunch break. I didn’t even eat I want to finish this so bad. Spooky night operation. Edges glued up Lunch break today. The drawknife lets me remove material fast. Gotta be careful though, real easy to take too much. It also can take a almost paper thin shaving. After some sanding and some more….the back This little 3M sanding pad with their new sandpaper works really well. I cam...

Observations #1: Big Fish Small Pond

11-08-2007 02:27 PM by Russel | 11 comments »

I just read Dennis’ entry about the Western Design Conference he went to (yeah I know I’m behind) where he described himself as a “mediocre woodworker” and that statement struck me as representative of LumberJocks. Many years ago, in my formative years I wanted to be a musician. In my local area I was actually pretty good and had a bit of a reputation. Based on my interests, I went to a specialized school that would allow me to take college level music courses whi...

Making a short fence #2: Used it and have some thoughts

12-05-2007 05:50 AM by Betsy | 10 comments »

Ok – I’ve made the short fence and have used it tonight to make my slats for my adirondack chairs. I have mixed feelings about the jig. In one sense it feels safe to use it. However, I can see that it has some potential dangers of its own. When I use my original fence and a push stick, I follow through with the cut all the way past the blade and I push the board off the table top and lift my hand straight up in one smooth motion after the cut is finished. I found that with t...

Snowed In

01-02-2008 12:38 AM by Phil Brown | 16 comments »

I went out this New Years morning to shovel the driveway, then retreated inside to work on my novel. Woodworking has to be on the backburner for a while as my knees took a tremendous beating being on my feet in the shop so many hours this year. Instead of moping about it I’m going to spend time on some other talents I’ve been blessed with, writing and art. I went out to clear the driveway again and saw the Freightliner in this condition. I don’t have to drive until Wednesd...

Stool #2: Update

03-02-2008 07:48 PM by Woodshopfreak | 1 comment »

I have continued on my stool project. I have improvised, and tweaked, to make this a stool that is usable. I am currently set on the idea of a pocket screw, with gule to attach the legs to the top, I know that a mortis and tenon would be the best possible thing, but that would require a compound angled motise with no edge to guide a router, I belive that the screws along with glue should hold the legs in place, but does anyone have any other ideas??? today I am hopefully going to finish up th...
