New SketchUp Video Tutorial Site

09-17-2013 12:45 PM by JSB | 12 comments »

I still have some content to add but I believe there is enough there to get anyone started. If you feel like it would help your friends feel free to share it with them. Everything there is of course completely free. If you have any comments or suggestions feel free to drop them in the Contact form on the site. I hope this can be of some use to someone. Have a gre...

WHAT'S UP? "While I'm out in my Shop". #10: I had to make some parquet tiles yesterday.

05-28-2009 02:49 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 9 comments »

I misjudged the amount of tiles I had, so I manufactured some more yesterday. I guess I miscounted the bundles I had made up. I couldn’t find any to buy, so I made some. I made about 60 more tiles.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~This is the area I have left to do in one corner of the main shop area. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Here’s some views of the tiles I made. I used some Black Ash instead of Oak, bu...

Thanks Lumberjocks for doing a dirty deed

07-05-2010 02:14 PM by jockmike2 | 25 comments »

On the 3rd David Craig and Rick Kruse came to my house to help clean my workshop/ 2 1/2 car garage. We surely bit off more than we could handle in a days time. We pulled out, let me change that, David, mostly, with a little help from Rick and I, pulled most of the stuff out sorted all my wood, restacked it, moved my machines around where I could pull them out and use them, sorted my wood so I know what I have, swept, lifted, tugged, pulled, helped rip a 7’ long X 3 1/2” thick X 3 ...

That was all fine and somewhat interesting. But, the important part is not the performanc...

Leonard Street Workshop #7: 6,000 BF of maple. wow!

03-06-2011 04:38 AM by tyskkvinna | 12 comments »

I told you I had a lot of maple coming soon. the boards are about 2” wide (2 1/4”, but I believe that includes the T&G), 4/4 thick and varied lengths. That room is 20’ x 40’—only about 5’ of it doesn’t have any planks. The pile is roughly 5-6’ tall. With various amounts of help, I pulled these up from the floor and then moved them into this room. They will then get processed and sold. If you need some maple, LET ME KNOW! ...

Had some leftover Ash, to make a front and a back, couple of pieces of Poplar for two sides, and some leftover 1/4” plywood for a bottom.. And a simple...

Social Network Marketing - Facebook #1: Why you should market on Facebook.

03-02-2010 03:46 PM by pashley | 9 comments »

First of all, what is Facebook? Facebook is the most prolific social network out there. Essentially, it’s a place to keep in touch with your family and friends, sharing messages, photos, videos, links with them, and joining them in games. You can also find old friends – and lovers – like I have, and catch up. It’s pretty easy to use too. It originally started out on the campus of Harvard by a few undergrads looking to make an online “facebook” – a ...

Entering the home stretch....

08-29-2014 08:18 AM by ajw1978 | 2 comments »

Don’t want to jinx it by gloating too much, but coming into the end of my most satisfying accomplishment yet. Building a trophy/plaque/award in honor of a lost friend. A last minute thing that had to be ready to go Sunday morning. Tapped the bullpen and called in the old man, who introduced me to Rockler where I found two pieces of walnut crotch that I said would “make do.” Sanded. Stained. Somehow, put a perfect edge on the base with the router; didn’t screw up the...

The Big Top.

07-04-2013 10:28 PM by cpine | 0 comments »

I show the process of how I made a large toy top out of wood on my lathe. Come along and watch. These tops are a lot of fun and can have a great spin time. The first one I made went over two minutes. This simple project is sure to please any little ones you may know and they are a lot of fun for the older ones like us as well. The Big Top.
