so i started trying to design this. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/99206 its Andy design. i decided to pick this project because our new planer cant be used right now and i need it for the cabinet i was building. due to an electrician who decided to cut the plug and take a brand new extension cord. we have to delay the use of the new planer a couple of weeks.I really liked the idea of fish for some reason so when I was looking through projects this really caught my design.
WE got home recently from a three week car trip to Pennsylvania .This was a somewhat aggravating trip because of the weather and car problems but we had many good times along the way .Our first stop was in Regina Saskatchewan which is my wife’s home town and dropped of some graduation presents for her nice (a box I made ).From there to Fargo ND and spent half the next day getting the ABS brakes fixed and on we went to Winona Michigan and contacted John Schutz and arranged a visit the n...
My original thought was to store four backsaws. 1. Disston 10” dovetail.2. Disston 12” carcass.3. Disston 16” tenon, XC.4. Spear & Jackson 14” tenon. Note that this many backsaws can make for some cramped conditions. So to prevent the backsaw till from turning into a game of Tetris, I opted to go with a single tenon saw. I can get away with this considering that I don’t cut deep tenons. Moreover by filing the saw at 10 degrees rake and 10 degrees of fleam, I can perform ...
Location: Sydney NSW AustraliaThe Harbour View Hotel Reason for being there:I was doing electrical work at the Hotel with my sons. Now I direct your attention to the photo of the Hotel, then in particular to the right hand side, and the building next door, there is a brown column feature at the entrance. So what you may say.Well I was outside tracing an building earth when I discovered some very interesting. I stopped to take a closer look and needed to do a double take on...
This is a first on more than one aspect. My first project blog and first serious scroll saw project. I bought my scroll saw about 3 years ago and hadn’t used it until a few days ago. It’s a Grizzly model and works fairly well for its price point. But anyways, just wanted to capture the build process on this elaborate fretwork for my current level of woodworking. Hope you follow along. This is on 1/4” ply and this is one of any holes I need to saw out. Hopefully I can get...
In this entry, I’ll cover some design and the construction process for the top. This blog series is not in chronological order but for the ease of reading, I’ll cover all of the top in a single entry as opposed to covering it in a few separate entries. As I wrote in my first entry, I decided to make the top more stable without making the top too thick. I call this “the spine”. The center section of my top is made from 8/4 maple and I decided to put a half-cove on ea...
I have always been an ambitious person, never shy to give anything a go. I never start small and always jump in two feet first! Sometimes it pays off, sometimes not. My name is Jono McHugh and I currently run a 5* safari lodge in the heart of the Okavango Delta, Northern Botswana. But home for me is a beautiful farm in the mountains of South Africa’s Eastern Cape Province. And it is there that I want to accomplish my ambitious (first ever) wood working project. My dad is a man tha...
I would like to spice up the LumberJocks membership by adding the Membership Levels based on the number of postings. The achieved level would be always displayed near the buddy icon to highlight the status of each jock. Here is something like my initial idea (the numbers are the number of postings by the jock): 0-10 – Newbie 11-100 – Addict 101 – 1000 – Enthusiast 1001 – 5000 – Wizard 5001 and more – Guru Any ideas on this? Maybe we ...
I’m trying to get my vanity installed waiting on the idiot plumber(Me). At least the electrician(Me again) got done today. My problem is I just never buy the right parts. I’m using an old sink that mounts on the wall with the faucet sticking out the back wall of the sink. I’ve only got a little bit of play with the pipes so after two trips to the hardware store I had to actually read the directions! I live out of town a ways so its is a pain to stop just to run to town to bu...
