Shop progress #4: Pictures are on the way.

06-05-2007 03:55 PM by Mario | 10 comments »

I know.. I need to post some pics. I will set up an account with one of the sites and start posting soon. I will not be able to get them tonight as we are cutting one of our offices over to a wireless connection. I hope that it will go well and I can get home early. I still have work to do on the key of the piano and some rearanging in the office. I cannot decide if I should take the lathe and accesories out of the office or leave them in there. The office is the only area that is a...

Our Shop #1: Basic Layout

07-11-2007 06:36 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 24 comments »

When designing the shop I tried to anticipate the type of work we would be doing. Looking back, I wasn’t even close. However, in spite of that, the work flow is very much the same for many woodworking projects. Our shop is laid out considering that work flow. Our entrance door is where we unload both sheet goods and solid lumber. We stack the lumber on stickers, prior to use, and the plywood is placed on a drywall cart. We place lumber on the chop saw station, which ...

Shop Tools #8: Today's Finds - August 12 2007

08-14-2007 04:22 AM by WayneC | 12 comments »

Yesterday was the monthly antique sale here in Sacramento and my daughter and I went shopping. It is a good family outting. I’ve gotten in the habit of sharing what I find on these outings, so here are photos of this months finds. I try to purchase things that I can use and avoid collecting for collecting’s sake. Sometimes I am successful and sometimes I am not. I have been looking for a jeweler’s frame saw for a while. They are useful for handcutting dove tails. I&...

old growth table

09-21-2007 06:16 AM by Bob Babcock | 13 comments »

I’ve always been fascinated by large trees. I remember as a kid being amazed by them. I was 12 years old when my mother and I went out to visit my brother in Calif. We took a ride up to see the sequoia’s. What an amazing feeling to walk amongst them. I still carry it with me to this day. My daughters think i’m a little weird. My oldest daughter went to Salve Regina in Newport for awhile and during every visit I would walk the campus admiring the extraordinary tree collect...

Update on Mark Oscorner

11-12-2007 04:44 AM by jockmike2 | 12 comments »

Mark contacted me concerning another opinion he had gotten from a different spinal surgeon. He said they had taken him off his heart medication so they could give him spinal injections, trying to pinpoint the area. Then possibley surgery. He’s in a lot of pain but continues to work. He has moved in with his father so he would have a 20 minute drive to work as opposed to a 2 hour drive as per his usual drive. He says it is agony for him to drive a car. Hence the move. He thanks everyone ...

My Adventure in Home Remodeling...the Wrong Way, part Five

01-05-2008 07:38 PM by tat2grl | 3 comments »

Monday rolled around and I arrived a little before 8am. I wanted to take a look at the “disaster” and find out what I missed. My friend was already there, leaning against her truck, smoking a cigarette. I got out of my truck, grab my bag from behind the seat and smiled as I walked up the driveway. My friend was looking at me like she could kill me. Uh-oh. “Good morning, sunshine” I cheerily said, “Who pee’d in your Post Toasties this morning?”...

Blog entry..Winter Awards 2008 (Added pics...teasers though ;) )

AAAAAAARRRRRGGGHHH! Steam bending standard 2X4 SPF stud material is, hands down, the single most difficult and FRUSTRATING practice I have ever undertaken. I went out to the shop today to finally begin assembly, and 30% of my pieces decided (after a night in the forms) that they didn’t want to bend after all :( First time I’ve ever had wood splinter after being in the forms…oh well, in true LJ form I took a deep breath, collected my thoughts, then….... started over....

Back in the game

03-29-2008 02:28 PM by Kaleo | 9 comments »

I thought I would send this out to everyone. It’s been awhile since I have had a decent connection, so I haven’t been around. But I am back in business as far as the internet goes. So I have to go through a lot of the old projects and blogs and catch up. I’m just starting to get the shop set up and I am documenting the whole process and will be posting the videos at my other blog site Kaleo's Workshop. So check it out, the first video should get out Monday or Tuesday....

One day I just got fed-up after having mis-adjusted a marking gauge. I said to myself “self, I am sick and tired of always having to adjust my gauge for the mortise chisel width”. Took a lot of work—haven’t regretted the time spent a bit. I didn’t really know how to use a spokeshave before I began this: I do now!
