Took these to work today, put them in the break room with a sign. They were gone in less then 20 minutes. Should have charged more I guess.

New student coming today

As an electrical contractor I taught many young people my trade. Some stayed with me many years and I got to see them become accomplished journeyman. Now in my 60’s I didn’t think I would teach anymore till yesterday. We met a new couple to the area some time back and I made them several things, we got to be friends and they visit my shop occasionally. I knew he was having a new shop built but not what for. Yesterday they stopped to see a glider /cradle I am building and John ment...

The Pawn Shop #1: Where and how I find used tools

02-25-2010 08:24 AM by mkrok | 16 comments »

I’m never going to buy a new tool again. Yeah right, but I can try not too. They are so expensive. If you have been following my recent posts I’m getting back into the craft after a long layoff. This series is devoted to the fine are of picking up used tools on the cheap. Recently I discovered ( or re-discovered ) the pawn shop. OMG !!!!!!! the selection of tools is incredible. I recently picked up a Porter Cable 1 3/4 Hp router kit with plunge and standard base. Grea...

Headed to Class #1: Making a Table

03-14-2010 05:01 PM by MickeyD | 6 comments »

I am going to a woodworking class in April in Kentucky. I am a novice woodworker and I am getting nervous. I will be making a small table with a dovetail drawer. I have never made a table or a dovetail. I figured I better try here at home so I bought some poplar and have started a table. The glue up on the table top went well and I am having fun with the plane trying to make it nice and smooth. I hope there is some thickness to it when I am done. I discovered that I should have made the morti...

Extremely Average #83: I love geometry.

03-26-2010 04:35 AM by Ecocandle | 0 comments »

The beauty of a fine piece of furniture can be destilled down to the geometry. The angles, the ratios, the use of different colors to create leading lines that take the eye around the piece, just as one would do with a fine painting. I don’t know if most woodworkers use a compass or not, but I have dug mine out and rediscovered my love of geometry. A straight edge, a pencil, a compass and it is amazing what one can calculate. The below picture is my favorite geometry proof. I...

More ponderings on nothing new but the glue... Looking for ideas really...

Yes I am using this more or less as a platform to encourage folks to do their part in taking waste and making it something wonderful. But what are the sources of waste wood that folks are using to keep the stuff out of the landfill? I would like to start, and would greatly appreciate other folks chiming in with their suggestions… #1. Tree Services. While some do sell logs and such to mills, or cut up and sell wood as firewood. Many simply chuck the wood into a chipper the off to t...
