I’m catching up on blogging the construction of my Thorsen House side table. The Saturday before the project was due I decided to start the day with the construction of the drawer box. Several years ago I bought a dovetail jig at Rockler, which I’ve never used. I decided that this was the perfect chance to give it a try. I’d pulled it out of the box, affixed it to a clamping board and familiarized myself with it’s part the night before so I was all set to go. ...
I’ve got to go to a urologist tomorrow and I’m wondering who else has gone and what do they do? Yes I have noctoria and I have trouble stopping once I do get going. Listen, my dad died with prostate cancer, two uncles on my mothers side also, plus my grandad on my mothers side and my grandad on my Dads side. It just don’t look good. You know what I mean? Talk about needing some prayers, I’m begging you folks to hook up with your higher power, and ask for some help for...
What a great week the postman bringeth! You ask your fellow jocks to send you some money – and they drop more on postage to give you Quarters from (my) home state! Thanks Ethan, David and Buckskin... This is a favor I’ll be paying forward, if and when called upon to do so. Otherwise I’ll be making a charitable donation in your names. (and anyone else who manages to dig up some NH quarters for me – Just so hard to come by locally) If anyone needs to trade let m...
I’ve noticed that some folks graphic/picture posts are getting cropped because they are too large to display. Photobucket can resize your uploads automatically so that they will fit. If you look just above the image upload pulldowns you’ll see some small text “Max image size ### x ###” next to that is a link to set the options. Set it to message board 640×480 and all your future pics will fit perfectly. You can also edit previously uploaded pics and resize so t...
Sorry all I have been working some long hours & not had time to hit the shop much. But everything is banded & I am sanding away! Hope to post some full assembly pics you can see.
I just noticed that today, 1/4/08, is MsDebbie’s 365th day as a member of the LumberJock Community. Congratulations to you MsDebbie and Thank You for your efforts and the time that you have spent making things better for all of us. Well Done!
I took a Woodcraft class last year called Hand Tool Basics and Sharpening. Took me through sharpening cabinet scrapers, chisels, hand planes and saws. A little bit about how to use them, but nothing significant. Loved the class, and I have to say I’m very happy with the sharpness of the chisels and plane blades I have done on my own since that class. Today I needed to cut up some MDF for a shooting board. Not knowing if MDF is good or bad for saws, I decided I didn’t want to ri...
I painted my car’s trunk white so my walnut samples would show up better, but, alas, its the camera (not the operator) that is inefficient. Sorry, I havent blogged lately but have been trying to catch up. Ive given up on pics until I get a different camera! I now have a car that’s 2/3 & 1/3!!! Now the thing Ive discovered while trying to sand/plane 50+yrs off my slabs is: This 2x workbench is not up to the task of full-blown wood working that I’m faced with. Just trying...
With most of the construction done it was time for detailing and contemplating how to finish the table. I share my thoughts on how I will proceed in this post in my blog. Thanks for reading!
Bookcase Challenge04 When I first heard of this contest I simply thought, hmmm, bookcases, another contest, another bookcase. And that was basically the end of it, I didn’t rush out to my drafting table and start scribbling, nor did I give it much thought. Another book shelf I thought, why try to re-invent the wheel right.?Ahhh, but as it goes, that very night I lie in bed awake, staring up at the ceiling with only one thing on my mind….a book case?So, the following morning whi...
