Experiment: Table top grain matching - gone wrong.

09-08-2014 07:03 PM by Oldtool | 8 comments »

I just started the two end tables to go with the entertainment center in my last project posting, working on the larger of the two at 24” X 21”, and determining the top’s appearance.All of my boards are about 7” wide, with one board at 9 1/2” & is flat sawn. I would like to make a one board top, not possible obviously, so I am stretching two 9 1/2” side by side to 21” wide:In so doing, I decided to add one additional board(s) in the middle of thes...

Joke of the day

01-26-2007 05:14 PM by Karson | 7 comments »

One of the web sites that I am a member of is Good Clean Funnies. it is at here is the joke for today: One night a wife found her husband standing over their baby’s crib. Silently she watched him. As he stood looking down at the sleeping infant, she saw on his face a mixture of emotions: disbelief, doubt, delight, amazement, enchantment, skepticism. Touched by this unusual display and the deep emotions it aroused, with eyes glistening she slipped her arm around he...

Don't buy this tablesaw til Hitachi hires me to redesign it

03-06-2007 04:08 PM by Obi | 15 comments »

I found a major design flaw with this Hitachi Table saw and it became evident when it caught fire. The flaw is the angle adjustment is not like the other cabinet saws, for their adjustment handle is strait out the side. This one has two plastic gears that connect and then the angle asjuster is out the front. Well I’m sure everyone knows that fire and plastic do not play well together and when this tablesaw caught fire, it melted the little gears and now the thing doesn’t adjust by the hand...

"Having a Wood-Full Snow Day" --by RusticWoodArt

04-06-2007 03:18 AM by frank | 3 comments »

Having a Wood-Full Snow Day ....and then the snow came. Yes that is what caught my attention early this morning as I climbed out of bed. First stop was out into the connected hallway to grab some wood for the bellies of our wood stoves. Getting up and at’em about 3:30 in the morning, when the stoves are down to ashes, can be a little bit cold around here, so I’m not wasting time as I move to get those stoves going. It started snowing yesterday afternoon, but soon tapered off...

Woo Hoo... I am just about as excited about this as I am about my new Jointer...

OK guys… Buddies… Jockular types. First off I wan to clarify… I have just outfitted a new shop with all kinds of tools and toys. I am proud of it. I worked hard on it and I paid for the thing cash with money that I have saved up over the course of the past 5 years intending to get this shop running. I have made lists and reviewed tool purchases and crossed tools off my list as I have replaced them with new tools that have come out 2 and 3 times as the years have gone on gett...

'This Old Crack House' #43: Restless and unsettled....

06-09-2007 06:26 PM by Dusty | 12 comments »

The house was finished and rented out, although I still remained unsettled about the whole deal, even though the immediate pressure was off. I had grown to like the house and I was very comfortable with the tenets. However, I was still unsettled. I am unsure exactly why I felt this way. As I reflect on it, I guess it was that I had poured my heart, soul and a lot of money into a project that I was no longer a part of. I really hadn’t let go of the house when it was rented o...

"Savage Semblance of Colors" --by RusticWoodArt

07-17-2007 01:51 PM by frank | 8 comments »

Savage Semblance of Colors ....and for from where-all comes beauty, as i am extolled amongst the sweetened background of your desire, while coming forth into the arena of eye as i, so that in this place of savage semblance of colors i give thanks…. And so I thought I would take a lazy morning stroll down the paths of close to home today, before I enter into the toiling of be-grimed striving to make work a place of play. So the invitations have now been sent out, for any and all t...

Dreaming of Festools

09-25-2007 03:24 PM by Bill | 10 comments »

Ok, so I am doing my normal perusing of woodworking tools, and I find that Woodcraft is having a Festool give away. Then I get to day dreaming, imagining what I could make with a MFT, or a TS55EQ circular saw, or even a plunge router. Then I realize I better enter before the contest is over. For the Festoolians out there, here is the link to the Festool giveaway. I am still watching The Woodwhisperer for the next Festool giveaway there as well. Imagine, a shop full of Festools. O...

LJ Site #3: Plans for Next Year

10-21-2007 12:58 PM by MsDebbieP | 4 comments »

Betsy has asked if anyone is interested in having a picnic in the Texas area. I have added the request in the next eMag issue and while I was writing about it, I thought it would be great if we could start the discussion about ANY picnic that might take place next year. If you are interested in participating in or hosting a LumberJocks’ picnic in your part of the world, let me know and I’ll add it to the list in the November eMag. It’s not too early to start planning &...

had this piece-a-wood with me for nearly 20 years ... still hasn't found the right project

had this piece of wood with me for nearly 22 years … still hasn’t found the right project Got this piece of white ash when we lived in Denver. Bought it out of a short box at Paxtons Beautiful Hardwoods near Arvada. Was making a rocking girraffe for my son Nathan who hadn’t even learned to walk yet. Still got it. It is in the attic. Perfect condition, except for the “red cedar” I used for the ears broke off. ... and the 2 inch round white wood googley ...
