So, I took my family to the Grand Rapids Museum today. For those of you that do not know, Grand Rapids was and still is a center for the furniture industry here in the U.S.A. Our local museum has a very large area dedicated to this industry. It includes a large steam engine that belt drives numerous working antique pieces of equipment. The museum also has hundreds of antiques pieces of furniture. But, the most interesting thing was this great bicycle.
I thought it would be cool to have a thread of all the woodworking fixes we all know. It would really help the new people especially to get better. Such a thread may already exist but I haven’t come across it. If that is the case please place a link to it… So here is one that you may find helpful. Workaround # 1 – Fitting tennons- when you need to adjust just a breath and your plane is taking too big shavings, you can have a lot more control if you take a wide chi...

Well I had not planned on entering the Gorilla Glue Contest but now I am. OOPS! I had the scrap. I had the glue. I even had the finish. What I did not have was a project that would use the glue. As of last night that changed! I salvaged the cedar from an old picnic table and benches that I had retired a few years ago. It looked horribly weathered, but I assumed that underneath it would be ok, and who in their right mind would want to throw away an entire picnic table of cedar. Th...
Hello All, I think this is the best set of Pins I have ever cut. In fact, I am sure of it, as I haven’t cut that many. Are they perfect? No, but as long as I keep improving, and having fun, it is all good. I even took a photo of one of the set of pins, before I finished cleaning it up, at a point where I would have probably thought I was done before. Now I know I can do better, so I keep working. I love this stuff. http://bit.ly/bIy4HK Brian
We painted the bedroom recently and decided to put up crown molding. Our house is 100 years old, and the Home Depot stuff just wasn’t getting us excited. We finally found a place here in Denver that specializes in old style moldings, since they’ve been in business since the moldings were originally created. Turns out we liked one of their in-stock moldings, so I’ve got 56 lineal feet of it ready to be put up. You can also see the cutting jig I made with the very expl...
After doing some review of shops and members, it looks like we might have some Lumberjocks that may have been in the way of Hurricane Alex. Just know that your fellow LJs are here, and at least some of us know the feeling all too well. Let us know how you are doing, and if there is anything we can do to help the area recover from the storm.
