Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure: Items to Build for Fundraiser #4: Next item to make: Several sets of coasters, maybe?

06-20-2010 11:27 PM by Jonathan | 3 comments »

This might not actually be the next item I make for the auction, but I think I will be making a set of coasters for the auction. I may not make them next because I think coasters would be an excellent use of scrap wood since they’d be made up of smaller pieces. So, I might wait until I cut a bit of the pink lyptus up for other auction items first. Then I can use the cut offs for the coasters instead of cutting a new section off the plank. I think I’m going to run a pink s...

While this is indeed a finished project… I am posting it here in Blogs because it is not all my work…This is another collaboration .. with my good mate Col.. master boxmaker.. Col has been helping me out with the last few boxes… I have supplied the timber while he has been doing the construction and then I have been applying the hand rubbed oil finish and lining the boxes.. I prefer an oil finish over a gloss polyurethane. That is not to say I can’t make boxes ̷...

Visit to Tule Peak Timber

08-01-2010 06:35 AM by CraigTurner | 1 comment »

I was looking online for rustic wood for a cabinet I want to build and came upon Tule Peak Timber. My wife and I drove out to see what they had to offer and were very pleased. Rob, the owner was very helpful in explaining the different types of wood and what would work best for us. He told us about and suggested we join because it would be very helpful. I really appreciate Rob taking his time to help us out. I saw some of the work he’s done and it looked like high end q...

Getting my garage workshop together #1: Shop Layout Ideas

08-28-2010 12:52 AM by Clemson | 11 comments »

Hi LumberJocks! I’ve just recently joined LJ after being a long-time reader. Thanks to everyone who participates in the discussions here. Your wisdom and experience is invaluable, and you are are generous to take the time to share. You can check out my page to learn more about me and my shop, but in a nutshell I am a fairly amateur woodworker working to set up my 2-car garage into a functional workshop. We’ll keep 1 car in most of the time, and I need to get set up to build ...

Workshop Ramblings #7: What a year!

09-09-2010 02:09 AM by brianinpa | 4 comments »

Been gone for a while and haven’t been too busy in the “wood” shop. Too much time spent on a new old hobby of mine. Before: After: When I was diagnosed with MS I decided that I had to do the responsible thing and sell my motorcycle: boy what a mistake. This Spring I decided it was time to get back in the saddle. I had a deal that was too good to pass up fall into my lap so I bought a 1981 Goldwing that needed very little work. I have been enjoying it so much tha...

Last part. Varnish dry. Time to position and fit the clip. First decide which end to mount the clip Flip it over horizontally Tape where the mounting holes for the clip will go Now you can turn it around without fear of getting the wrong end and mark up for the holes Cut holes and secure clip I used some bolts and nuts fitted with shakeproof washers I had left over from my computer installation days.Eh voila! The final pics will be posted as a project...
