Karen's Table #1: New Saw

11-29-2010 04:01 AM by Safetyboy | 4 comments »

My new tenon saw arrived the day before Thanksgiving… just in time to try out on the tenons for my sister’s table. Never had I hand-cut tenons before – I always did them on my tablesaw with a dado blade – but these stretchers were really too long to do that easily for me. So I dived in – and surprisingly, everything went together pretty well: The saw is a 16” Wenzloff & Sons, and I have to say, despite the old “it’s not the arr...

The amazing talent

12-13-2010 06:42 PM by brolga | 5 comments »

I am new to posting on anything, let alone a community as large as this. I have been registered for several months and am amazed at the number of talented and creative people out there. I love the site and will figure how to post a picture of something I have done before too long. I am about to begin a rocking horse for my new grandson. It is a little crafty rather than artsy but well worth the effort…

Extremely Average #319: Just an update...

01-19-2011 06:21 AM by Ecocandle | 4 comments »

Hello all, I did some cleaning of the shop tonight. Nothing worth writing about though. I have still been adding chapters to Henry Wood. I just realized that I have been neglecting the LJ folks. I am sorry about that. There are seven or eight more chapters up now. I just posted ch 45, and I think the last one I told you about was 37. If you click on the Henry Wood heading at the top, they are all grouped together. It is pretty close to 50,000 words now, so this one is offically a n...

Grandfather Clock

First I want to start by saying that I have not been on here in over a year. Well I have been pretty busy. My wife became pregnant with TWINS. The pregnancy went great and we were blessed with 2 very healthy boys. Henry Edward and Gavin Thomas were born 21 Dec 2010. They just turned a year old. Also in Aug. I started attending a Cabinet Making/ woodworking class for the next two years. It is at a technical school about 30 min away. I decided to take this class to sharpen my skills as ...

Who's headed to the Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event in Gaithersburg, MD?

05-03-2011 05:46 PM by acanthuscarver | 4 comments »

Just thought I’d see if any of my fellow Lumberjocks are headed out to Exotic Lumber, Inc. in Gaithersburg, MD for the Lie-Nielsen hand tool event this Friday and Saturday (May 6 & 7). Raney Nelson of Daed Toolworks will be exhibiting as well. As an added bonus (if you can call it that), I’ll be premiering the new DVD I made for Popular Woodworking Magazine called “Cabriole Legs Simplified”. I won’t have copies of the DVD for sale but you can pre-order a copy...

Delta Mortiser 14-651 #15: Added depth gauge

05-26-2011 01:12 PM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 3 comments »

I went to Harbor Freight and bought the clamping dial indicator with vice grips and gooseneck extension. It’s really pretty cool. Here’s a couple of pictures. A couple of FWIWs… - Although the goose-neck does adjust, there’s a pretty limited range on it.- There are surprisingly few spots to clamp that allow the goose-neck to reach “just right”.- No matter where I put the gauge on the back fence, it’s going to interfere with somethi...
