Lumberjocks website brings in sales for me, Finally!

03-29-2008 11:19 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 13 comments »

The topic of making money with woodworking related things on the internet has been a long and thoroughly discussed topic here at LJ. For some, the road to riches has been easy, but for the rest of wood dust makers, it has been hard work, filled with pitfalls, and over-excitment, and lots of disappointment. Sure, the internet “can” make any small business as publicly available as a mega corporation, and that fact alone sells books and tickets to seminars to those wanting to lea...

Beginning Woodworker Just Starting Out #6: New Toys

07-01-2010 06:50 AM by Jimi_C | 5 comments »

Well, one of these I actually got a while ago, I just haven’t had any time to play with it… I got the #8 late last year, and it has sat around due to the fact that it had a lever cap that was cracked in half (in the picture, it’s in the bottom right). Well, I finally snagged a new lever cap off of ebay, the same day I finally won a #71. I’ve dated the #8 to 1910-1918, based on the patent numbers, adjusting knob size, etc., and the seller of the replacement l...

Turned handles #3: Handles are finished and mounted

05-31-2013 10:36 PM by Dan Krager | 7 comments »

I finally finished the carving gouge handle project. These are mostly Addis blades a couple Buck Brothers This represents about half of my total collection, so I am well equipped to move ahead on some SERIOUS carving projects. The other half consists of newer Pfeil gouges and some miniature gouges and chisels. As noted before, I’m planning a Grinling Gibbons style carving and this is a major step towards beginning work. I have some experiments to perform to test procedure and materi...

Murphy Bed #3: Part 3

04-18-2009 04:12 PM by Gene47 | 3 comments »

I spent a couple of hours going over a suggestion that maybe I should make the bed outer case deeper so I can make the cabinets deeper so I got out the cutlist program and put in the new numbers and no matter what I came up with I was at least one sheet of plywood short. We choose Mahogany for this project and at $73.00 a sheet along with a 100 mile round trip to get it we just went back to the original plans. So off I went and using my new Gorilla Gripper carried the 1st sheet over to ...

dw's shop tips #4: Remove a rusted nut on all threads.

09-16-2013 01:01 AM by Don W | 13 comments »

I had to remove the adjuster on a threaded post from a #71. Here is how I did it. The bolt was rusted solid and would not move. I had soaked it in penetrating oil for a while (almost a week) but it still didn’t want to move. I could heat it, but I’d still have to hold on the threads. So I cut a piece of aluminum flashing. I folded the flashing and clamped it in the vice. The aluminum will not hurt the threads but will hold it tight. This is a knurled nut so an...

random #24: list of favorite woodworkers

08-12-2009 08:20 AM by Gary Fixler | 1 comment »

While searching up something else on the Google last night, I stumbled upon an exactly 900 day old post on our very own LJs site in which user ToolCrib asked the question Who are YOUR top five most influential woodworkers?. ToolCrib (Garrett) then went on to compile that list to his own site here. I thought I’d repost that effort on the 900th day as a little look back at who everyone thought was inspirational a few years ago, but then I fell asleep early, so here it is, 901 days later :)

Mother & daughter toolbox #5: We are a lot further along!

06-13-2014 03:03 PM by ejvc | 4 comments »

My daughter had the brilliant idea of moving all the tools from where the workbenches are, out in the barn attic, to where the giant plywood table is, in the shop in the basement. So I went with it, and we’ve spent some time now finishing up our toolbox. Oh, it is badly constructed. Very badly. It is the opposite of a thing of beauty. And, it is far too heavy for a six-year old. But it is actually done! It is painted pink and red and has her name on the side, and the tools all fi...

01-14-2014 04:35 AM by woodworker59 | 5 comments »

Didn’t want anyone to think I had left for parts unknown, can’t say I haven’t thought of it a few hundred times… I can not remember ever living in such a dark place for this long.. I could really just start hurting people,and that’s the old me…the me that people would cross the street to avoid, don’t want to go back there, not a nice place.. So I don’t want to drag anyone down with me, nor do I want to start screaming about stuff, I just want t...
