I’ve been looking to equip my shop with “hand powered” tools. So when I saw this, It was love at first sight. I had it shipped home, and sadly, It arrived with the frame broken in two. After filling a claim with the shipping company, I was not happy with their offer to refund my money “on further inspection” (meaning give it to them and await payment)—-no thank you. I will now have it “welded” by a local machine shop. 1) As it arived. A beaut...

So here is the next phase in the early life of a box. After straight lining one of the boards and cutting to a rough length for my project, I split the board in half. I usually go for 3/8 or a little larger but since these boards were already surfaced I couldn’t make them thicker. LOL. I ended up a little proud of 5/16 thick. I know a lot of people make there boxes 3/4 thick but this way works better for me. I will add to the interior once the lid is sized and everything is...
As I mentioned at the beginning of this, these two boxes will be for my wife and daughter. Today I was able to get back to working on them and did a little carving on the lids. If you would like to see more about how I do my epoxy inlays you can check it out at http://lumberjocks.com/JoeyG/blog/26663. I am not going into a lot of detail, since most of it is covered there. I just wanted to share the pictures of the progress and keep this as up to date as possible. You will notice that I...
Well as I promised last week I certainly have projects to post this week. I have been busy at milling some wood and putting it to use at the lathe. I actually posted 3 projects in a row earlier. My daughter joined me in the shop yesterday to work on pens for her Kindergarten teachers. I spent a few days going through my wood that I have had drying for a bit now and was able to cut pieces down for numerous ornaments for my coworkers and some pens for others I had great ...
These are the first couple of photos from my attempts to renovate my new garage. The previous owner didn’t have it set up well so I’m filling in gaps, sanding, priming, painting, moving, removing, organising and eventually creating! But there’s a long way to go before then. My tools should arrive this week so I’ll try and get the walls primed and painted, then I’ll be able to set up the tools properly.
Sometime around noon there was a knock on my door and the delivery man was here to take the package which contained my calendar project. As I saw the truck drive away, I felt a sense of relief that it was finally on its way. I had done all I could to make the project look good and it was now out of my hands. I still have to finish up the writing of the instructions – but that was the easy part. My camera (and subsequently my computer) contained probably seventy pictures to choose ...
Hey guys and Gals! Do you follow me on Google +? How about facebook? well if not, you may not know about the big suprise I have planned for a fellow woodworker. Its not to late to get involved. Basically there is this guy I cant name him because it would ruin the suprise. I got big plans for him and a lot of woodworkers have already gotten involved.. I wish i could go into more detail but its hard to do and keep the secret…So here is what you can do if youd like to know more… Be ...
So I have started my wood working journey in the last couple of weeks. I’ve gathered some of the basic tools; Table Saw, Band Saw, Miter Saw, and my favorite… Hand Plane. All of my tools have been used so I have spent the last few weeks getting them back in shape and they are now in a usable state, except the rip fence on my table saw. It sucks but but I’ll to put up with it for now. Several weeks ago I bought a Stanley No. 5 Jack Plane. I believe it is a type 11 whic...
