Wow I am only 9 weeks into this series and yet it seems to have been going for much longer. I did not get nearly as much shop time this week as I did last. But I managed to make some time to continue to practice with the lathe and I very happily finally posted my first official Lathe Project . To go along with my lathe I have been searching LumberJocks and various other places on the web for ideas for a sharpening jig and a band saw log mill. I have decided on the basic design of the sharpen...
In case someone is following here, but not on the comments section: Another LJ from Australia made the following comment about feeding. My reply is below: Matt,Great to see someone else into bees.BUT—-why are you feeding the bees so much at the beginning of spring??Why not just get them into foraging for themselves and the honey will taste even sweeterI got caught up in too many other bits `n pieces this autumn and so have left all the honey on for the winter, and that was even after...
I’ll be out on a fiield trip for most of the morning, but the shop is still open. We will final assemble Singleton’s murphy bed, and black lacquer Taseen’s football locker murphy bed. To see what is happening live see our Current Projects page.
I guess the shipping changes aren’t so bad, since it weighs 1000 lbs.
just the way I see things.. #7: there is a light at the end of the tunnel.. just can't help but wonder if its a train coming my way/
I have decided that it does me no good to turn myself inside out trying to figure out what nightmare they are going to lay at my feet next… I can only deal with whats in front of me.. So they take away everything I ever earned, so I lose my house… So I’m crippled for life,,, I can manage.. its the attitude that they have no responsibility for what happened that really burns my gourd.. You would think I am asking them to pay for my mistakes instead of their own.. I never ask...

Well, I just finished cleaning, packing up and moving my “shop” back into the closet. (Seriously … I need a garage soon). I’ve spent the last week sawing, sanding, screwing (heh heh heh) and swearing and the result is: 1) A poorly-crafted and sloppily-stained gift box2) Two poor-fitting window screens3) A shop vac full of saw dust4) Many, many, many pieces of scrap lumber But, in an effort to keep a positive attitude despite my grade-school-shop-class level of ab...
I made this for a friend for her birthday. Fastest work I think I’ve ever done. I started it this past Thursday morning and now today (only two days later) it’s done. I only did 3 coats of poly on it due to time allowed but I think it turned out pretty well. I actually worked around the clock to get it done in time. You can’t see it in the picture but on the top there is a 3 1/8” diameter by 1/2” hole for the candle to be placed in.
To compliment my new roubo workbench (in process) and to add to my hand tool fascination I ordered a set of 2 Gramercy holdfasts from Tools for Working Wood. The purchase was simple as with most online stores. The cost was $20 for 1 or $35 for 2 – so not being one to pass up a deal, I went with 2 for $35.

As you can see, all the crevices have been sandblasted, the gray wood has been taken down to the rich wood grain and the gold is turning to blonde. This has been sanded with an electric sander and now I have about half a day of handsanding to make sure there are not any scratches, then it will be time ot build the legs. There is something very alluring about the movement of this wood, it can be so wild looking, yet so calm that it just pulls you in.
