I Love the Smell of Sawdust in the Morning

12-20-2008 06:10 AM by michaelray | 0 comments »

Since I’m new to this site I’ll start with a little background about myself. I began woodworking when I was in my mid twenties. The place where I was working at the time was a packaging manufacturing company that would receive pallets of paper with 1×4’s on the top that helped keep the banding in place. It seemed like such a waste that these 1×4 boards were being tossed once the paper was taken off of the pallets. I really knew nothing about woodworking but I felt ...

Calling All Texas Lumberjocks...

01-09-2009 01:06 AM by woodchips | 5 comments »

Hey Guys, I told a friend I’d try and sell some of his black walnut so here’s the offer. I’m trying to put together a package deal since he wants to sell all 7000 bf of it in one fell swoop, of course it doesn’t have to be all one buyer. Anyway the wood is all air dried, all 10/4 and 5/4 stuff, some of it is up to 12” in width and none of it is less than 6’ long with most of it 8’ up to 12’ in length. I know lots of ya’ll might not b...

Finally Spindle Pictures

10-13-2009 01:11 AM by dustbunny | 11 comments »

I posted a blog about some chair spindles I turned for a friend. These were to replace the broken spindles on a chair he was working on. Finally, he sent me pictures this morning. Apparently he has put the chair together, but plans on staining and finishing them sometime…..Even though they are not stained it is still nice to see that the work was used and actually doesn’t look too bad. Thanks for looking, Lisa

Morris Chair #5: The Bent Arm Conumdrum

01-27-2015 01:39 AM by Luddite | 6 comments »

26 Jan 2015 Darn it! Ran into a ‘conumdrum’ of being unable to make the crooked morris chair arm as I did in the past. You know, cut from corner to corner and flip the cuts around. Well, I’ve been kinda dreading this time. My bandsaw is just not up to taking a 5” piece. Using the table saw isn’t on the radar either. Hmmmm? So as Baldrick would say to Black Adder: “Sir,I’ve a clevr idear. We could grow a tree with a 9.5 degree bend and w...

Garage Re-Do #19: Somewhere . . . someday . . . somehow . . .

03-27-2009 05:47 PM by MyOldGarage | 1 comment »

I guess spring fever must have hit, last weekend I spent some time changing the plugs in my truck . . . luckily a four banger with plenty of access. While I was out there I saw two eyesores beside my shed . . . testimonies to past “What was I thinking?” projects. One was a boat step and the other was a boat . . .uh . . . air conditioner setup. The step worked, but since the boat moved and there was a plank to the dock, some people didn’t quite appreciate the movement o...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1140: My Day "Off"

09-30-2013 12:00 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It was a perfect autumn day yesterday. What started with a thick layer of morning fog turned into a brilliantly bright and sunny, yet cool afternoon. The leaves in the trees across the road along the river are just beginning to turn golden on the edges, and soon they will have the deep, rich colors that fall brings before they float to the ground. It is my favorite time of year. We had a busy week and an even busier weekend. After the site update on Thursday, we hit a few milestones with...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #16: The worst Easter ever

04-06-2015 01:46 AM by ic3ss | 4 comments »

So, my task today was to cut up a piece of maple I bought the other day to make the gap stop and get it glued up in the clamps and then go over to family for Easter dinner. I set up the band saw and set about resawing the board into two halves. It went fine for the first 3/4 of the board then it was binding the blade and was not tracking straight, and not wanting to cut. I made a couple of adjustments, everything else looked fine in the setup. It just wouldn’t cut and was binding hor...

Need Input On Invention" PLEASE"

10-17-2007 01:43 PM by gene | 18 comments »

Fellow Lumber Jocks,I just recently became a member here at LJ”s and happened onto a forum topic, posted by bryano (thanks Bryan) that made my heart skip a beat. It as about keeping up with your pencil. I desperately need and want your input on an invention that I have a temporary patent on. I have it in the hands of a marketing firm at this time. However in a couple of months, I will have to file for a full patent and I will have to hire a patent attorney for that, which will cost ...
