They gave me two sets of wheel chair casters and plans for a kids cub cart and one for a adult cub cart. it is a race kind of like pine wood cars. it will be held this Saturday. I have the kids one done and it as been tested by the scouts and meets approval. O and it fast and a bit showy. 1.0vThe cart is made out of 3 8’ 2×4 fir milled to 1 1/2×3 6\16, maple peaces and mdf covered with laminate 2.0 is on the way. ...
Hello All, It’s been a while since I talked about what I wanted to do to my spray booth/garage second bay. The first thing I did was create a drying rack. I wanted to make one that was cheap and able to take apart if I needed some room. I decided to put it behind my bench where I could get to it but it is also out of the way. The spot I decided to put it will work for now but once I put in the second garage door I will have to build a moveable one. I built this rack out of ...
!http://(Mortise 2)!I was at a local joinery the other day so I decided to pick up so lumber for the lamp table project I was thinking of doing. I picked up some 2×2 american white oak. I went home that day and cut the oak down to 4 18inch lenghts for the legs. I marked the mortises out using a mortise gauge and decided to route the mortises out as i have never tried this method before. ( I’m a hand tool guy ) For this I though I’d go out ant treat my self to a new router bi...
Well it says that it’s been 8 days since my last Unisaw post but that can’t be right because it seems like for-friggin’-ever! Nothing I gotta focus, my brain, not the camera. I finally ordered the touch up paint for my Unisaw. Hopefully it will be here next week. Hopefully it will be the correct color. If not, I guess I will have to have it mixed and buy a sprayer. Side note: I was adding tags to this post and under “Skill” I couldn’t find a tag...

As all now know, I pushed the ‘meeting’ of local LumberJocks at our regional WoodWorkingShow in Sacramento last weekend. Some 25 members identified themselves and signed the ‘book’. Additionally, we were able to tell our LumberJock mesage to over a hundrd people! And in the last few days, over 100 new members have signed up. [I would like to think those of us at the Sacramento show had some part in those 100 new members,] During this process, I found several bit...
The manual that you had to read several times before before figuring out how to use your new power tool.
well over the past week i skim planer all of the lumber. it took quite awhile considering that to minimize tearout i had to take about 1/64” off of each board if not less while the board was wet with water to get a decent enough cut so that i can hand plane it without having to take off too much to remove the tearout. but honestly this stuff is just a whole different animal as far as wood goes its impossible to get it clean off of the planer. so here are some pictures of the skim planed...
The Spoken Wood Matt Vanderlist, the original woodworking podcaster, has started a new series of readings on the topic of woodworking called the Spoken Wood.They are intended to be an audio-only format so followers may download them and listen on their way to work. This is a much safer alternative to watching his video podcast on your iPod while driving. The Spoken Wood will be rich in nutrition for the woodworker. The readings will be covering various topics, tips, and ruminations of w...
Hi fellow lumberjocks. I figured I would give a little background since I am new to the site. I have always enjoyed designing and building things that make my life easier/better/more fun. Years ago I tried my hand at woodworking, but, without any decent tools I was quickly disappointed when my project came out looking worse than the scraps I made it from. Fast forward to today and the woodworking bug has bitten me again. Fortunately I plan on doing it right this time. I have been setting u...
