Fred Sanford Woodworking!

04-13-2008 06:36 PM by smitty1 | 5 comments »

I know, it’s a funny subject title but read on, we all have a little something to relate to this.Have you ever been driving down the road or in the neighborhood and seen an old chair or table laying out to be picked up by the trash service or someone has just cut down a tree and the logs are laying at the curb to be pick up? Or how about the factory down the street that has a dumpster full of scrap lumber or pallets?Or the friend that calls you and says he just cut down a tree in his ...

My Computer ??

06-21-2008 10:43 PM by gene | 13 comments »

Hi! Everyone, Has anyone else been having trouble getting pages here on LJ’s to load? Some of the time my computer acts like it is on dial up instead of cable. I don’t seem to be having any problems with any other sites. Do I need to contact my server or what???? It seems to be the opening page only. If someone is using dail-up, they probably time out before they can get on the site. I almost hope that it is my computer.Thanks and God bless

Assembly Table #1: The idea!

07-14-2008 11:21 PM by Callum Kendall | 5 comments »

I was thinking this weekend about what I will need in my shop when I have finshed the build. I liked the assembly table that Marc (the wood whisperer) made in one of his videos. This is my fist attempt at sketch-up, so hear is the idea :) Any suggestions feel free Thanks Callum

Norms Router Cabinet #3: The Electrical Work

09-28-2008 04:47 AM by sIKE | 9 comments »

Got back in the shop this afternoon and after two trips to the orange box I got all of the electrical work done. I am very happy with how it turned out. This is a custom piece much different from Norm’s plan. The switch is from Grizzly, I have the 12/2 wire on hand, the rest is from the orange box. Total outlay about $38. The switch works great even though it is mounted sideways. Here is a view of the internals.Below the switch you can see I finally got the 17/32nd drill bit in and star...

This week in urban logging #7: Still at it

10-31-2008 12:30 AM by Daren Nelson | 11 comments »

I opened up a pretty large mulberry today and knew on the first cut this was going to be interesting. So I cut a little deeper. Flipped it over…and urban logging strikes again. 2 screws, oh well there was plenty of good lumber under them. Yea those are 21” wide mulberry boards with figure. Kinda weird birdeye/burl clusters, pretty. Mulberry is very pretty anyway. It darkens to the color of aged black cherry as it dries. It is much more attractive dry. Not a bad sta...

Need to find new storage for my lumber

11-30-2008 11:11 AM by daiku1 | 5 comments »

in my current shop, I built home-made storage arms out of 2×4’s and plywood. Most of my lumber is stored horizontally. I would like to move my lumber out of the shop and into a storage building, where I would like to store it vertically. I need to do this to gain some space for a jointer/planer coming my way. I am somewhat worried about warpage. Can anyone tell me if they have had good luck with vertical storage? Any tricks?

Turning slippery slope #1: Starting to turn

12-24-2008 10:13 PM by Betsy | 5 comments »

Yep – you read that right. I’ve been hesitant to turn anything because I’ve never really liked that “spinny” thing. But a friend recently has convinced me that turning would probably be a good thing for me to learn since small projects can be done quickly and are not physically demanding and I can learn it’s simply steps pretty quickly. I’ve already got the Jet mini lathe and most basic turning tools. I took my Christmas money today and signed up f...
