Noob and now recovering from surgery

05-05-2011 02:25 AM by SSMDad | 4 comments »

I’m a relative newcomer to woodworking having really only had the opportunity to experience it when I was in high school “shop” class. I remember using the radial arm saw, bandsaw, stationary sander, and especially the lathe which I haven’t purchased yet but would love to have one day. Yesterday I had to have surgery to repair a torn miniscus in my left knee so all my projects now are just in my head. Today was also my wife’s birthday but I haven’t been ...

Wood and Tool gloat

10-03-2010 12:48 AM by Rustic | 6 comments »

Last week was our 10th anniversary. We went to Sleeping bear Dunes in Honor, MI. While we were there we had a real bad wind storm that knocked down a basswood tree in the motel’s yard. (no damage to anything). Well I asked the manager if I could have a few pieces. This s what he gave me Then we stopped at an antique sop and picked up this Stanley Baily #3 plane in excellent shape. Just needs some TLC Paid 20 bucks for it. Now I just need to learn how to use it....

Building a Goat Barn #19: Final Thoughts

12-12-2014 08:37 PM by David Bareford | 4 comments »

Well, it’s been a long road, starting from here: And here: And ending up here: I wanted to use this final entry on this project to talk about some of the many things I’ve learned, in order to maybe help out other woodworkers who might attempt similar madness. The Wins ——The journey of the building is important, not just the destination. Build what you want, how you want. —- Wow, did I learn a lot about working with roundwood logs! Be...

A favor for my students

10-07-2008 04:21 AM by tooldad | 12 comments »

One of my assignments, when allowing students to pick their own projects, is for them to make an idea book. What is required of them is to come up with a general project, hopefully on they plan on building, and find at least 20 examples of that type of project. Example: Nightstand or Medicine Cabinet, etc. Each example is worth a total of 5 points equaling 100. They get 2 points for the photo of the project, one point for the manufacturer or the builder of the project, and 2 points for th...

The Rules of Work

11-23-2014 03:30 AM by Alan | 2 comments »

This is just a list of rules that I have either come across or thought of for myself that I need to keep in mind at all times when (trying to) do fine woodworking. This list is mostly for my own reference, and in no way to be considered exhaustive, but rather to be added to and updated as I continue to learn. If you fine folks reading it have suggestions to add, or strongly disagree with something I have on here, feel free to leave a comment! I’m here to learn. 1. Keep grain orie...

Strange insight and inspiration

06-06-2010 05:24 AM by sawblade1 | 3 comments »

Good evening Lumberjocks, This week nothing happened much around the shop spent mostly doing house work after the painters, so this week in my spare time I called several banks and tried to get around $ 8,500.00 well by Wednesday I had been told no more times than a disobedient puppy dog. Well ? Wednesday night the look on my face must not have been a good one as my partner asked what was wrong ? I told him I didn’t want to talk about it OK he said but I know it’s bothering y...

Sharpening station

03-08-2010 02:54 AM by DragonLady | 2 comments »

I have a Delta GR275 bench grinder on the way to me (I hope, anyway, the seller hasn’t given me indication of anything), so I thought it would be a good time to set up a permanent sharpening station, especially since I also just got the Rockler version of the sandpaper sharpening system. So I built a little bench out of scraps laying around: Fine furniture it is not. It’s a space to bolt the grinder to, and still have room on the right for the sandpaper. I wonder if my b...

Alvarado Lumberjocks!

05-29-2009 09:59 PM by Jay Neale III | 3 comments »

Well, my fellow Alvaradotian (Alvaradoite?), Tim Marko, just dropped by a couple of hours ago. He’s probably not even home yet and I’m posting about it. Tim’s a nice guy and some of the projects he brought over to show me are just wonderful. I should have taken photos of those! Anyway, I showed him around my shop, my office, showed off lots of candle holders and wine rests, and we talked a lot about where to buy wood in this area. He seems to know a lot more about buyi...
