A Strategy for Woodworking #18: Education

08-14-2014 01:16 PM by Gary Rogowski | 3 comments »

I got involved building chairs with the Lumber to Legacy project in Albany, OR. Here’s the story in their local paper. Lumber to Legacy Some high schools kids helped us build this cafe chair design. I wrote to the paper explaining my involvement. “I wanted to respond further as to why I did this class for the kids. I love to teach and this was another opportunity to be with a group that doesn’t get the attention they deserve. Education in the applied arts is mostly for...

Sprunger 15" floor drill press

09-05-2014 06:19 AM by jlabos | 4 comments »

Sunday I brought home my latest craigslist find for my workshop. A Sprunger NDP 15 floor drill press for $50. It has some gunk and rust but it sounded fine and the quill is tight. It also came with a vise. I think I got a good deal. My plan is to clean it up and see how everything looks and decide if I will break it all down, paint it and do a complete restore.

Misc. Shop Stuff #48: Markwell DP2 Diamond Point Stapler

11-15-2014 09:08 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 6 comments »

Not a big thing, but definitely one of those “used one a long time ago, now I want one” things that so many of us can identify with. I worked at the local lumber yard when I was in high school, and spent many hours repairing windows, storm glass, picture frames, etc. in the back room. When my wife wanted an old window re-glassed for pictures, it reminded me how much I hate using these things: ebay is a wonderful thing for finding the most obscure things… It appears...

The clock story.

12-08-2014 01:34 AM by AKDave | 1 comment »

A few years ago I saw plans for a clock that I rally liked and have wanted to build ever since. So, about a month ago, I decided that it was finally time to do it. Needing Christmas presents for my four adult kids and their families, I decided to make 5, one for each kid and one for myself. So, even though I was already into two projects, (two more commissioned caskets) and I don’t really like to do different projects concurrently, I started on them. Being big on symbolism and wanted t...

Another facelift time!

03-01-2007 10:01 AM by Martin Sojka | 15 comments »

It’s another design update time! I’ve decided to celebrate our 1st birthday with the facelift of the project, blog, topic and workshop pages. As you can see life is never boring here on LumberJocks ;) Here is the screenshot of the updated project page (one of the Mark’s projects serves as a nice example): As you can see I’ve added handy statusbar/toolbar right under the project title. It summarizes all of the project “meta” info like the author, p...

LJ Site #1: LJ Picnic - ONTARIO, Canada

07-11-2007 11:37 AM by MsDebbieP | 19 comments »

The LJ Picnic is fast approaching (Sunday, July 15th) and I’m getting excited! Rick and I are looking forward to our little event. So far I’ve been told by a few people (including John, Extreme Birdhouses) that they will be stopping by. I noticed that we have a few Jocks in Ontario now, some within driving distance of me and so this is an invitation to join me. The picnic will be taking place in a small town about half way between London and Toronto. If you get the itch...
