Learning Curve #2: The Learning Curve, Part II

01-15-2007 12:25 AM by MsDebbieP | 7 comments »

Having put the finishing touches on my latest project (that would be my second project ever) I decided to try and free a woodspirit from a piece of 2×4. The wood had edges of bark still on it, as well as lots of splinters-in-waiting. How to clean this up, I ask myself. I could ask Rick, but he was buy installing a wood vice and I hated to interupt him for the umpteenth time, so I decided to take matters into my own hands. What could I lose? A piece of old 2×4? So, “take a c...

Sabbaticals of Fine Wood Joineries ....and so out from my waundering past experience of trailblazing glory, i stopped a moment before the wealth of your beauty, who is this one who stands before me having a richness of story, and can you tell me after hearing your words what may be my duty…. —-walking this path, from in the wooded covering of your much entangled new found overgrowth, has drawn out the the fire that beats within my chest of passion, just as my bulbous heart i...

Weekend windows

07-10-2007 06:59 AM by Bob Babcock | 10 comments »

I didn’t get to resaw any wood for the summer challenge yet. Still having some issues with the bandsaw and was busy with 5 windows and work this weekend. We are replacing all our old windows with new Pella Prolines. Nice to get rid of the storm windows and they should really save some energy. We are using all new construction instead of the replacements. We didn’t want to lose the glass area and these are still going pretty quickly. The pictures I had a headache in the mo...

Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #11: Wednesday Special — Tribute Tour of Karson's Shop

09-19-2007 08:59 AM by Douglas Bordner | 14 comments »

This week it’s a repeat visit to Karson's shop. You may remember that Debbie visited Karson's long ago in the early forum version of the tour, exhibiting her mountain goat-like scaling abilities while inspecting Karson’s incredible collection of lumber. This tour is a recognition of Karson’s contributions to Lumberjocks. Yes, Karson was one of the pioneer members of LJs, with nearly 500 days of membership logged. Here he is at the beginning with our founder and several of...

Sassafras Box - a True Learning Experience

10-17-2007 06:25 AM by cajunpen | 15 comments »

About 3 years ago my wife and I were on vacation in Arkansas. I appropriated a slab of Sassafras from a woodworker that I had befriended. We were actually in a State Park that had huts set up with demonstrations of the way things were done a century ago – very interesting. Anyway, I got this slab, which is about 2 feet in diameter and about 5” thick. I carried it onto the tour bus that was taking us back to our hotel – people thought that I was crazy, my wife was way ah...

Cabinet Progress #15: Slow Progress

11-11-2007 04:53 AM by gizmodyne | 20 comments »

Before I install the dishwasher panel I need to fit a piece of trim to cover the mortar bed. So back to the wood pile. I need 11 feet of trim so I pulled a 12 footer from my stash and began the resaw process. First: Metal detector boogie and pull nails. (About 50 this time) Getting ready to resaw. Tiny Shop! Resawing: My outfeed support. Planer cleanup. Unfortunately a knot blew out, so I am going to have to scarf two pieces. Trim stock. Ran out of steam. It is c...

Fascinating Tree

01-05-2008 03:05 AM by Grumpy | 17 comments »

Well Jocks, I thought these pictures were worth sharing. I don’t know the original source or even if they are genuine. Many of you may have already seen the pictures in a power point presentation. If anybody knows the source, or where the tree is located (if it is real) I would like to know.(finally got there Tom).

Day 2

01-23-2008 06:06 AM by John | 4 comments »

Spent most of yesterday trying to get it sorted out. It’s closer than it was but not quite right. Here’s what your contractor saw looks like on the inside. Underside of a contractor saw. Cast iron top propped up between my router table and the contractor saw stand. View from the front. Just to the lower left of the bolt hole is the area I had to grind to get enough side to side adjustment from the trunnion. This is the blade tilt adjustment shaft. This is the front ...

Ponderings #14: The Most Important Tool

02-13-2008 02:49 AM by Tomcat1066 | 6 comments »

There’s always talk of what tool is the most important in any workshop. Is it the table saw, or the router, or the bandsaw? Well, as a hand tool guy, I’m screwed if it’s any of those. Nope…I think the most important tool is one that never shows up on the lists of important tools. It’s easily upgradeable to some extent. No matter what you need it to do, with a little research and perseverance, it will rise to the occasion. This tool will never let you down...
