THE GRIZZLY G1022 tune-up…..I recently was forced into retirement by NYS…so what does a 59 yr. old. Buys a saw and a metal detector!!! i’m new at wood working. VIA the internet i’m learning..I went to auctions and started buying..I started with a brand name tablesaw and spent more time tuning it than i did useing it. The nickle test! i did the hammer test.You set a hammer on the table and instantly it would vibrate off—had everyone looked at it and said use it f...
My 11 year old niece asked me if I would build her a desk for her bedroom so she can study. She’s my niece and my little gluing partner, so how can I say no? Problem is, I really don’t know where to begin and really not sure whether what I’ve came up with is ergonomically correct. I don’t have the money to go “all out” on something ultra nice and she lives in a double wide mobile home (Yep, we’re from Georgia), so she doesn’t really have a lot o...
I have a box that has 3 drawers. It is made out of ceder. It is 5 1/2 by 3 in. the top in, has a slight “S” curve.I started by cuting the S curve then I cut off the back. I think the easiest way to do the drawers is by making a little cuts as possible. You need to use a small blade. glue all the parts and sand. that is as far as I got.
This is the famous poem that Chris Schwarz mentioned once; i dug it up and appended whatever notes i could find on it. For the full entry, click here.

Calling all South African LumberJocks (and any other LJ’s ambitious enough) The town where I stay is looking to remove 22 trees from one of our parks, and is looking for a cheap option. With my little fledgling reputation as an urban miller, they approached me with a proposal – If I fell them, I get the wood as payment. Unfortunately, I’m not equipped to be a tree-feller, so I turned them down. I did, however, offer to do 1 or 2 trees, depending on the species and si...
