A Flag Display Box #6: Turning a Page...

02-26-2010 04:28 AM by littlecope | 13 comments »

The Bad News is I’ve done virtually no work on this project of late…but the Good News is I’ll be getting the Lexan to continue this project sometime this weekend!! The work should proceed pretty quickly after that…In the meanwhile, I thought I’d share a little of what has kept me so busy.It seems the latest “Maladie du jour” the shrinks have “discovered” is called Hoarding. As usual, they’re late to the party, our Grandparents could ...

Amazing Tools #9: Lie-Nielsen planes

03-05-2010 09:56 PM by Gary Fixler | 11 comments »

I think I need help. It’s happening. I cannot stop researching planes and workbenches lately. I don’t have room for a bench, nor money for any planes, but they’re just so enticing! Lie-Nielsen has been the most attractive by far, but I find it staggering the number of planes available – 44 standards listed, with an additional 30 variants, not including left/right hand options for the few that have them (same price in each case). The bench plane model numbers (e.g. N...

Extremely Average #97: Who is number 45?

04-09-2010 04:53 AM by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

Hello Lumberjocks, I doubt many of you would have guessed that number 45 is my mallet. But it is, and I explain why in tonight’s blog. I would describe today’s ramble as especially inane, but that sometimes happens with my writing. I am pleased with how it is coming along and now that it is glued together I can proceed with getting into the shape I want. Brian

Workbench #1: My Bench is Started... My first BIG project in a long time...

04-24-2010 05:28 AM by Gatsby1923 | 1 comment »

It seemed like never ending planning. A few books, a few magazine articles, some time in Solidworks playing with designs until I found a design I liked. It is closely based on the LVL workbench from Popular wood working. A friend of mine had some scrap LVL from a construction project he was doing at his home so that was another deciding factor. Unfortunately when I went to get that scrap LVL it was all cut into short 36 i...

new project #1: Walkin stick

05-07-2010 06:10 AM by m7trevlyn | 0 comments »

So today I was out in the back yard with the wife and found a slightly crooked stick that was about six feet long, with the largest crook being at a comfortable spot for my hand as I walked. So I figured as a simple project I’m going to work it into a finished walking stick. Wish me luck, if I mess this up then I shouldn’t be wood working at all.

Built-In Bookcases and Mantel Surround #3: MDF prices are soaring! (Or maybe it's the riftsawn white oak veneer on top of that MDF?)

05-19-2010 09:01 PM by Jonathan | 4 comments »

I went to the lumber supply store last week and purchased 1-sheet of 3/4” riftsawn white oak MDF core plywood and 1-sheet of 1/4” riftsawn white oak MDF core plywood for the bookcase carcasses and backing material. Holy cow, that put a dent in the plastic! Good thing that card has a high deflection rate. The 3/4” sheet was $124, plus tax and the 1/4” sheet was $70-something, plus tax. The grand total for a couple of sheets of MDF was $212.37! Wow, MDF has g...

Starting my business #2: Where to sell?

06-17-2010 03:54 AM by SchotterWoodworking | 4 comments »

I need some help finding a venue to sell my clocks and furniture. I’ve considered Ebay but I would much rather deal locally and not ship items. Craigslist is just kinda scary to me. I would be concerned about unsavory people knowing that I have thousands of dollars worth of tools in my house. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #56: Not Too Exciting Today

07-29-2010 01:26 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I am feeling quite a bit unsettled today. Sometimes it is when I am in between projects that I get like this. I also had some not-so-great news the other day and the scope of it is really sinking in. I guess it was the timing. If I were in the thick of things and pushing at this point, it wouldn’t give me as much time to think. Maybe that is why I like being pushed so hard or pushing myself. :) I did get a lot of work done yesterday. I finished the five new candle tray pattern...
