Adventures in Finding Cheep Quality Wood

10-31-2009 05:24 PM by AllTen | 7 comments »

Let me start off by saying; yes the title is a bit of an unreal statement at times, but some times you can do it. About a week or two ago I found a deal on for some cheep red oak. Now I have been trying to get around the price of finishing off one of my friends projects for him on the cheep seeing how its cost him a lot of money all ready. So two days ago I called the gentlemen from the add and he said he had a deal for me. He has about 30 or so 2×12 and 8 to 12ft long pieces o...

Another LJ get together in Michigan

11-17-2009 07:57 PM by jockmike2 | 14 comments »

As it were. SteveMI. Stopped by to say hi today much to my surprise and pleasure. We talked like old friends for 2 hours before he had to hit the road. He had stopped back at Raven Farm to do some more shopping, without me, of course. He promised next time to include me. We had a great time and he got to see my messy shop first hand. Will I take the messy shop record? Who knows. We did talk about another Michigan get together maybe in January or Febuary. What do the rest of you Michiganians t...

Extremely Average #10: Horrible Dovetail Blunder

01-12-2010 04:17 AM by Ecocandle | 14 comments »

The population of Martelle Iowa is in the neighborhood of 350, so one could use the phrase thriving metropolis comfortably. We do not have door to door USPS delivery, which is a little bit of a bummer, but it does have a tremendous upside. The excitement I get when I hop in the care and drive all the way across town to check my post office box. It is almost like Festivus all year round, without the pole or ‘airing of grievances’. Actually I don’t care for mail, but last Thursday I mad...

Evolution of a Shop #4: Miter saw/drill press bench almost complete

02-02-2010 05:16 PM by Cory | 5 comments »

I made some progress last night….I finished installing the cabinets that are the base for my CMS and my drill press. I also finished installing the countertop, which is a solid core door with a 1/4” hardboard top for a total thickness of 2”. The edges are wrapped in cherry. I thought about leaving out the hardboard, but I want to make sure that I can easily replace the top when it’s damaged or worn. On that same train of thought, I screwed on the edge banding as op...

Hi everyone, I’ve been viewing many of the projects here and am litterally awe-stricken at the quality of the workmanship here. I hope to make some contributions in the future of my own that will stand up! A little about me … Not having the tools nor the space in a rental or a condo, I had focused on other things such as cycleing and computer repair. Now, however, I have a modest home to which I am the proud owner of with my wife of 3 years and a baby on the way. What a time...

Thinking about the nothing new but the glue challenge, and recycling...

04-06-2010 08:04 PM by dbhost | 15 comments »

Martin posted up an interesting challenge today in his blog. The Nothing New But The Glue Challenge. And while I do plan on putting out a project from this challenge, well it got me to thinking. And I am not sure about other woodworkers, but I learned from my Dad, my Grandfather, my uncles etc… that what is being proposed here is a good thing. Now the whole environmental impact thing aside, it just sort of makes sense to utilize everything you’ve got to the best of your abilit...
