I’ve finally joined the ‘00s and am listening to podcasts on my iphone while driving (which I do for work). Being a woodworker, I listen to Wood Talk Online primarily. Last week I sent them a link to a video, and they featured it under the what’s new segment! Check out woodtalk online #185
First blog entry! ENDS TODAY (6/30) I seem to come across some pretty stellar deals in my woodworking tool obsession and I though I would share my good finds with my fellow Lumberjocks. Mostly the deals will be from Lowes, Home Depot and Woodcraft. SO the find I wanted to share was IRWIN 12-in Bar Clamp! Lowes has been running them buy one get one free- but this week they are simply HALF OFF. ($10) A good find and while you are there picking some up- look around for Bessey clamps....
Been awhile since my last post: Randy aka Blackie asked that I show my rehabbed/recycled Hybrid woodworking bench. Please feel free to share your thoughts, advise and humor. It is appreciated. So here it is! Looked and listened to some really good woodworkers here on LJ’s like Paul aka Shipwright, and Kiefer. Have to give credit to Paul Sellers and his YouTube video of constructing a woodworkers bench and a more recent one regarding adding bench dogs to your existing bench. A...
Was working on a project which would require 2 strips of curved walnut so decided I needed a steam box. It had been on my bucket list for awhile so now was the time. I already had an old pressure cooker and a single burner electric stove. Only other things needed was a box and some hose. Well, I actually made 2. The first one was made out of plywood and was a major fail. I should’ve had enough common sense to know what was wrong. After about 2 hrs of boiling with the burner on high,...
“OOOooooOOOh…Look at where my feet are pointed!... Can’t you see which way I’m going?...” – Olive Oyl from the film ‘Popeye’ If you are a woodworker or DIYer worth his/her salt, you are probably on a constant quest for the ultimate tool storage and transport scenario…one that is versatile enough to ensure that all the tools you need are at the ready, protected, easy to find, easy to access, and readily movable from one place to another. In ‘handsawgeekland’, such a quest prompts periodi...
I am making some wooden handles for some harbor freight 6 function screw drivers for Christmas gifts. I made the first one from Walnut and the second one from Cocobolo. Yes I understand that cocobolo is a little nice for $2 hardware but I had this wood around for a long time and it sure does make a great handle! Please check out the video and comment I love the interaction ! Thanks!! Chris How to Make Wooden Handles for Screwdriver
Here’s a great free download that I came across that helps me visualize what time of day it is where you live. The graphics are terrific! (No spy ware.)
What are all the little letters for beside the entries. I could guess but this way I dont have to. Did you send out a notice and I missed it?
A recent string of chatter had me post an obit spoof as a potential t-shirt idea. Chip, Greg and Dr Sawdust (put in for about 3 dozen orders) and suggested I post this as a bonafide blog to gauge a wider audience… Oh, Obi and Karson like it too! So fellow jocks, does anyone else out there need a little wardrobe enhancement for the new season? Shall I add something along the lines of the text that follows (with some nice appropriate art – I am a graphic designer afterall!) to my...
I am not a mean person, so I relented when the wife and kids asked for another dog because “he would be good company for the other dog.” I admit, I like dogs and she is a pretty, chocolate Lab. but she does have one strange quirk. She eats wood. I took her out to the shop the other day and she thought she was in heaven. She loves to bring thing to people, so she proceeded to bring me pieces from my shorts box one at time. I put up with this for about the first 5 or 6, by the 10th...
