Based on your suggestions, I’ve finally added Donations page! So now you can support LumberJocks financially by donating money through PayPal (note that PayPal also accepts all the major credit cards). Donated money will be used to cover the growing hosting fees, to buy banners and spread the word about our website and to make our unqiue Awards and Challenges even better… maybe I will also buy one-two beers if possible ;) You can choose between donating once or making a recurri...
The tool cabinet is all together and has three coats of Minwax Wipe On Poly applied. All that remains is to install the drawer liners and move the tools into place. I purchased some drawer liner from Lowe’s that was okay, but didn’t lay as flat as I wanted and didn’t have an adhesive back. So, I will return what I haven’t used and see what else they have available. The back was a rail and style assembly that turned out pretty well. While finishin...
Hi LJ’s. In case you don’t already have it, Issue #2 (Fall 2004) of Woodworking Magazine is available free as a pdf download. Click on the “Download a free issue” link at the Woodworking Magazine homepage . I have no relation to WW Mag beyond being a big fan, well and a bit of a Christopher Schwarz stalker (in a good way, of course!). ;-)
The story so far… I had this idea for the 2×4 project… actually I had 2 ideas, one (living in an OLD house), was to use a true 2×4 salvaged from an earlier home reno project and get to use better looking, straighter, and certainly drier lumber. (not to mention a larger piece…) but alas, I decided that wasn’t in the spirit of the challenge, whether or not I had the piece I’d need without having to knock down a wall to get it. the second (taking a t...

Geez, I thought I was done with shopping/research :) Seems that once you have your background and lighting down pat the next step is better glass. Keep in mind when I originally purchased my camera I didn’t consider it might be necessary to upgrade the lens. I did understand I may need a different lens for landscape shots for instance. Through this process I’ve come across various sites that show images from one end to the other of the range of a particular lens. I’...
Some new pictures with so progress from last time. I have painted all the walls white. I have turned an old hallway into a tool room, that will be home to all my hand tools and clamps. Basiclly anything you steal will be in the room. I have also installed most of the duct work. Some things that i still need to do are, build a wall to separate my space from the other company in the warehouse. Build out a office and possible paint the floor. The other major and obviously most important thing...
So I found some pictures of wooden rattles online and thought I’d try to do something like that. I bought my first lathe last winter and have not put much time into it, I thought these might be good ways to practice tuning. I turned some dowels and then cut them in half with the band saw. Then I used a few different forstner bits to hollow out the ends. Dropped in dried beans and rice and glued them shut then sanded them smooth. This is after two coats of salad bowl finish an...
