Modern Computer Desk #11: Addendum: Modem/Router Shelf

05-15-2017 12:14 AM by Ron Stewart | 0 comments »

When I started working on the desk, we weren’t sure if we were going to place it out in the room (with its back visible) or against a wall. Ultimately, we decided on wall placement, and that led me to an addition: a small shelf tucked under the bottom rear of the desk to hold our cable modem and wireless router. The shelf is simple. It’s basically an 18” long by 8” wide by 3” high box with an open back and ventilation slots on the front and sides. The actual s...

Sauce's adventures in woodworking #1: I may make 1000 dovetail joints in my lifetime

05-21-2017 06:43 AM by SauceMan | 3 comments »

...but even if I make 1000 or 1000000 joints, this will always be my first one. Made out of a couple of scraps of pine. Soft woods make for interesting chisel work across the grain. It’s not great, but it holds pretty tightly. I wonder if some wood glue will seal up a few of those gaps if the wood expands a little. I’ll find out tomorrow when I glue it up. In case you were wondering about that missing corner on the far end of the joint… I marked the wood wrong i...

My NEW Chip Carving book is ready!

08-12-2014 07:36 PM by MyChipCarving | 5 comments »

Hello LJ’ers,One week ago today I was picking up 2000 copies of my new book, Chip Carving Essentials, A Step-by-Step Guide to Successful Chip Carving. The finished product was boxed and ready to go! The pressman who ran my book was my first sale. He knew right away that his uncle would really enjoy this book. I loaded them into my truck and trailer and got home in time to unload and load up again and head to Carv-Fest for three days of classes. If you'd like to check it out, CLICK HERE!...

Been out for a while... Not intentional...

09-03-2014 02:48 AM by dbhost | 11 comments »

I really need to check in more often. I am just flooded with other issues these days. My shop looks like a tornado hit it, and I haven’t spent any woodworking time out there since May…. Been busy with home repair / truck repair projects. I am prepping to take the RHCE in the freshly released Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 here in a couple of weeks, so I am cramming as much into my head as I can… I think I will be ready but not certain…. Been working too many hours on...

To treat or not to treat a Cedar bench

06-08-2017 03:27 PM by DVT | 5 comments »

I have just completed a solid cedar bench (4×4 and 2×2 construction) for a fund raising auction. I am debating with myself as to whether I should treat it, or leave it to the eventual buyer and what i should suggest they use or not to use.Suggestions from someone much more experienced with cedar projects would be more than welcomed.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1842: Now There Are Three (Sheep)

06-16-2017 11:55 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday was a difficult day. Most of you who read or know me know how much I love kitties. Cats and kittens have always been such a big part of my life. Most of my life I have had at least one cat and most of the time more than that. To me, they aren't only pets but valued members of my family. Many of you remember that this past December, I suddenly lost my dear feline friend Pancakes to illness. He had gone into surgery that was intended as 'exploratory' and never made it...

First we went to our Habitat Resale Store, omg it’s my favorite. They have so much stuff some new mostly gently used but the selection and prices are the best. Plus the money spent helps families in need get a house. So I got a couple new blades for saws and I got some hinges for ...

New woodshop #1: Purchase

06-20-2017 09:14 PM by Combo Prof | 13 comments »

I plan to retire in 2 or 3 years, so we bought a retirement wood shop. It came with a little house. So we are moving from a 4,000 square foot house to a 1,000 square foot house (excluding basements); from 1.9 acres to 0.15 acres; from difficult to travel to easy to travel; from little or no restaurants and stores to lots of them; from the UP to Southwest Michigan; from the forest to the rust belt; from copper country to tulip town; from Houghton to Holland. The house:...
