2 Years ago I helped my son Jonathan build a wooden mallet, see widget above. This year the fair come up, The Del Mar Far, and he decided to enter his mallet. He did well, he made 1st place… Better yet me had best of show… Better yet he came home with $25.
Well it’s been awhile my sawdust friends. I’ve been spending all my time on another of those life long projects and I thought I would let you guys and gals see the progress. I would like to introduce Gabriel Phoenix. He was born on Aug. 10th. He is number 5 for us and has been a complete joy. When I am able to get back into the shop, I will be sure to share my woodworking with you, but until then, I will enjoy being a father to my kids.
Finally wrapped this project up, after some setbacks. To correct the angled chop I had to see what was the problem: the hole drilled in the chop or the hole drilled for the coupler buried in the leg? First I tested the hole in the leg: Clearly, the threaded rod exiting the leg is off of perpendicular. Then, before I attacked the solution, I decided to check the chop: Huh. It’s off too! So, after some hand wringing, cussing, and a few beers, I took the case online ...
Finaly the horses moved in to their new house. It happend on last weekend. Late in the evening on late saturday evening. The only thing that has to be done are the windows. The frames are done. I had two without glasses. They were about 7” to wide but I fixed it by cutting them from the midle and then routing from each side from the midle 7” so I got a matching lapjoint. Yesterday I orded the glasses and before weekend I have suitable windows for the pihatto. I have a problem with...
So I was riding around with my son and we stopped in front of this cabinet makers shop to admire the planes he put on display. I also found out that up until about 1985 there was still a wooden plane maker in the same neighborhood. I’m gonna see what I can find out about them this week.
Well I have been watching surprises on Soldiers surprising there Wife, Family., Mother’s, Girlfriends and I started thinking about my welcome home. I am not looking for any sympathy or anything but mine was not anything like that what I watched. I waited two hours at the airport for my wife to, show up, and when she did she didn’t even get out of the car, or say h,i Boo, or—————-, sorry, but that’s the first time I thought about that in a lon...
Thank you all for a wonderful and eventful year here on LUMBER JOCKS .I have enjoyed it very much and now that I have retired I have more time to devote to my woodworking hobby and finally am able to make the projects that I have been thinking about for many years and it very satisfying and fun .No more pressure to get things done even so I miss the income that a job provided but that’s OK ,a slower pace and more enjoyment even so quite modest is a nice way to be .Thank you for all the ...
As I finished my wife’s desk, I know I was officially hooked. I was unable to resist the urge to acquire more tools, including a used Delta thickness planer. I made a jointing jig so I could edge-joint on my little DeWalt contractor table saw. I upgraded my homemade router table to one of Rockler’s, with their insert plate and fence. And I managed to sneak a few other things past the wife into the shop, including my first Festool—an amazing little compact drill that I st...
