Another 1 year Anniversary

07-24-2009 05:44 PM by Darell | 10 comments »

I stumbled onto, and joined, Lumberjocks one year ago today. It’s been a great place to hang out several times a day and see what’s going on in the woodworking community. I enjoy the projects, tool reviews and the forums and all the banter that goes on between the jocks on many different subjects. My year here has been rewarding in that I’ve learned many things, gotten many ideas for future projects, and ideas on how to make current in-the-pipeline projects better. Many ...

That One Thing #2: Shoulder devils

10-05-2014 01:58 AM by fumehappy | 2 comments »

Nothing quite beats gallivanting on my Friday lunch hour to some choice estate sales. On seeing a local one recently, it looked intriguing, and I knew i had to stop there. It was on a stretch of highway notable for it’s steep climb up a mounting, and frequent closing during inclement weather. Upon arriving, I noticed the jointer. It didn’t even register on me that it was in the ad, as I had come seeking axes and possibly a dresser, but there it was. A beautiful, clean Delta...

First "turned" pen

10-05-2014 10:16 PM by Dan Lyke | 3 comments »

Greg at Oregon Burls posted a Facebook “person to guess closest to the weight of this burl gets a couple of pen blanks” entry. So I assumed a spherical lump of uniform density, did a little ¾πr<sup>3</sup> action, and nailed it. But I don’t have a lathe, nor did I invest in the fancy long drill bit, so this is a jig to rotate the block on the milling machine, some sanding, and the guts from a mechanical pencil. Got a few measurements hilariously wrong, but...

prototype Scaper plane

02-12-2011 08:40 PM by Dandog | 4 comments »

I was wondering how you finish your shop made planes?The blade is set at 70 degrees but you can go is high as 90.I wanted to see if it would work without a blade deflector.The woods used are purple hart for the sole.Pudauk on top of that(will see how straight it will stay ).Red oak for the sides an frog. The front Handle nob is a cut off from a Louisville slugger bat.My Friend went to the factory and brought a couple back for I’m guessing Ash.The handle is walnut and pine.‘ ...

Grizzly Here I come!!! #3: Welcome to the service department!

03-02-2009 07:11 PM by Kevin Wilson | 14 comments »

A fellow lumberjock, “Cabinetmaster”, posted on the previous entry of this blog that he was sure Grizzly and their service department would fix this jointer issue for me. He couldn’t have been more right!!! I called the service department this morning and spoke with Philip. I was prepped and ready for battle! Armed with good details, 30 or so photographs, and first name basis conversations with many of the sales associates I spoke to on Saturday. But Philip on asked o...
