So maybe this isn’t a butcher block glue-up in the traditional sense, but it is a very close relative with similar construction, design, and look. See how Scott has assembled butcher-block to be used to make bar stool seats! If the video doesn’t appear, CLICK HERE to watch it now!

This is a work in progress, so I couldn’t post in the completed project category. But, it will be awhile, and I am eager to unveil this. This cart has the 12” compound miter saw on one end, and the router table on the other. Inside is 2’x4’ of space for all kinds of stuff, that I haven’t quite figured out how to organize yet. I screwed yhis thing together with pocket holes, just to see how strong it would be. I cut square holes for the jawhorse miter...
The Head Stock on this particular lathe is designed to rotate at varying degrees up to 180 degrees. One of the issues fellow Lumberjock William, A.K.A greasemonkeyredneck pointed out to me was keeping the head and tail stock in alignment. This issue is due in part, or perhaps in whole, because of the ability of the head to rotate. The next two photos illustrate how much misalignment is possible on my lathe. If the hold down lever isn’t tightened down with a lot of force ...
I sent 3 new photos for my pens holder as an answer to Underdog.http://lumberjocks.com/projects/94254#comment-1744543 Thanks for looking.
Next up is the apron on the front. As I noted before, I will not be having a lower front stretcher, so this apron will need to combat racking forces. Glued on with some dowels to help with alignment and strength. Legs are through-tenoned into the top. (Mortises were left during the top-glue-up process). And here are a few pics of the half-lap dovetails joining various stretchers to the legs: The legs at this point are only about the thickness of a 2×4, but they will be dou...
Alot of folks on here know Jason, aka Burnin Bush. Wanted to let everybody know that we now have a new little Lumber Jock to add to the LJ family. Jaxson Aaron Bush was born 5:37 PM today, and is 7 lbs and 8 oz and 19”. Both Jaxson and his mother, Nicole, are doing fine. Jason is a proud father, no doubt. Im sure the baby bed we built together will get lots of use now.
I don’t have much time in the shop anymore so I thought I would do a few carved inlays for some box lids. Here’s one I started today.
Delta Biesemeyer table saw fence (guide tube and rails only) – new without packaging – never used delta fence guide tube and rails. An individual can add their own fence to this setup such as very super cool tools askwoodman t-fence or a delta fence for much less than purchasing the entire set by buying this new guide rail and rails. Located Harlan, IA (60 minutes from Omaha, NE) see link below for post and photoshttp://desmoines.craigslist.org/tls/4438112246.html
I have proved tha Robertson screws are, indeed, harder than my planer blades :-( I was working on a new and improved tiller for 816 and was using up some leftover/recycled boards. The daft part is that this was the second tiller I was making today (didn’t like the first one) and had carefully made sure there were no screws in that piece, the piece that had the screw was the offcut from the first piece! You apparently have to chech EACH piece LOL! Oh well, they were old blade...
