Ruminations, Philosophy, and Workshop Antics.......... #18: Quality Tools - LJ's Can Make a Difference!

05-02-2010 08:29 PM by Jim Bertelson | 5 comments »

AllI was replying to lilredweldrinrod's Rigid service review and realized I was rambling on, so I converted it into a blog…......currently I am in Chicago at the start of a vacation consisting of family vistis and a random road trip. LJ’s are undoubtedly partially responsible for some the changes we see in the service policies of tool companies…........... In the old days, quality seemed a matter of pride, and most woodworking machines were commercial. Commercial prod...

Getting into carving

09-01-2010 07:25 PM by Rustic | 10 comments »

As most of you know my Grandmother passed away in July. Well. this past weekend was her memorial service. The Grandkids were allowed to go through her stuff and grab some momentos. Well, I really loved all her carvings. Noone else touched her carving books,wood, and partially finished carvings. So I got it all. So now I am going to take up carving and try to complete what she started. I will be taking pictures soon of the goodies. So if there are any carvers in my area that would like to take...

Lamps for the living room #1: Decent Start

03-22-2013 01:27 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 5 comments »

I have been building some lamps for the Living room. I discovered an issue. My small miter saw used to be as accurate as anything else I could manage. I didn’t realize that the fence had warped until I started assembling. My 45 angles wer more like 45.75. It threw a wrench in things and gave me a little firewood but I recovered most of the cuts. I’m ready to move on. I was able to straigten the fence on the small saw but now I’m marking my cuts and disregardng the presets...

2's my favorite 1 #1: wood selection and processing

08-24-2013 12:10 AM by Chris Cook | 2 comments »

I wanted to make something for my wife’s birthday and mother’s day, which fell on the same weekend this year. I have had this semi-spalted maple in my collection of wood so I cleaned it up for this project. Since it is nearly a requirement of mine, I decided to accent this project with some deep red padauk of which I always have on hand. If you have the need to buy something and do not already have one, get a drum sander. It’s at the top of my list of favo...

September 2014 #1: Some Completed Projects

09-26-2014 12:51 PM by ThumbHammer | 3 comments »

Here are some completed projects that I have been working on in September. As you can see I like to use my laser to enhance projects. Project 1 is done with recycled Redwood. I like to play with what ever I can read in the wood grain as this next image shows. The horse looks like it is splashing water with its foot but that is actually a knot in the wood. This is a typical scene from my neck of the woods. Project 2 is done with Poplar. Project 3 is done with Teak. A...

Barrister Abomination #2: Top cap

08-24-2009 11:34 PM by BeachedBones | 4 comments »

Well, it’s been a couple months since I last worked on this project. I finally lucked into an old oak board that had been sitting on the rafters in a garage for a few decades. I did a quick estimate and saw it had enough wood to do the next step on my barrister abomination. It’s all pretty basic woodworking patterned on an antique. The only tricky bits are getting the fitting right in order to line up with the shelf sections.

Bench/stand for metal working lathe #6: Short stretchers and sanding

12-24-2014 04:27 AM by Mainiac Matt | 3 comments »

Decided to add short stretchers to cap the plywood shelf ends… Since these where an after thought, I just used pocket screws.. But joints look nice and tight after a little sanding… Thinking about over driving the screws and filling the holes after the finish is applied

Planes #1: Found a no5 and no3

09-05-2014 01:26 AM by Matt | 4 comments »

Now, I know you all will say you find planes for $1, but I have had no such luck. Last weekend I picked up a Stanley Victory #5 in nice shape for $20 and then stumbled on an ebay ad for a $15 montgomery ward plane “and another”. The pictures were blury, but I was pretty certain I could make out a #3 on the front of the plane. I figured for $15 I’d roll the dice. The box came and I was happy to find a Stanley no3, a little rusty, but not bad. The seller through in a spa...
