Church pews project #2: ready for stripping

01-04-2013 04:30 PM by inchanga | 4 comments »

The pews have now been broken down ready to be taken to the stripping facility. Theoretically the chemicals should enhance the natural appearance of the wood but i have everything crossed just in case things don’t turn out quite as expected. I will know by the end of next week just how much usable timber I have.

LJ Interviews #35: gfadvm

01-17-2013 09:50 AM by MsDebbieP | 27 comments »

This interview with gfadvm is from the January 2013 issue of our LJ eMag. 1. How did you first get started working with wood?I got started in WW because I needed a new indoor activity. I made bits and spurs for many years until the saddle shop where I sold them closed due to the death of the owner. I thought that I might enjoy WW even though I had zero experience and no WW tools. 2. Tell us a bit of history of your journey from that beginning to where you are todayI bought a Ryo...

First Project With the New Powermatic Table Saw #27: Water for the slab

03-13-2013 01:29 PM by psient | 2 comments »

I have now run the water line for the slab. I will hook up to my in-slab line after installing a few hose bibs on the periphery. I dug the trench from the property main with my L4400 Kubota’s 72 inch FEL. although this was a bit of over-kill it worked out fine with one minor distraction. Home Depot has dumped almost all of its PVC fittings with the exception of those a non-mechanical hobbyist might use for their sprinkler system. Let me elaborate. IN the past when I needed a PVC fitt...

Photography contest entry (aka Pallets in Scientific Art)

04-13-2013 09:31 AM by Sodabowski | 9 comments »

Hi LJs ;) A contest has been running at my university since January 7th. Neat subject: “Retro future”, the future seen from yesteryear. Well the bait got me and so I decided to enter it (hey there’s an iPad [mini,alas] and a few other goodies to be won!). So my idea was to mix up things from different time periods and make it look like a 30s advertisement. I had been saving four 50s Nixie display tubes to make a clock for my father (work in progress which will be po...

Tapering / straighening jig #3: small bits and a side-track

07-12-2013 04:33 AM by mIps | 0 comments »

Today I was able to work a bit more on my tapering / straitening jig and did some other stuff as well. In our back yard, my lovely wife has some beds she uses to grow veggies. Well, she needed a couple more so the first part of my morning was spent putting those together. Nothing special, just pressure treated 2×6 screwed together with rocks and dirt tossed in. Fairly quick work.The second part of the morning was spent replacing the light that is in our laundry space. We’ve had ...
