another kick back story

07-03-2009 01:03 AM by sval229 | 5 comments »

“You’re not ready to go back in the shop yet.” Yep, heard it from my doc., my wife, the kids (all grown), and my physical therapist. I had rotator cuff surgery on my right (dominant) shoulder in early May and I’m fortunate enough to have a lot of movement back without a lot of pain. Well I started off with a bandsaw box when my arm was still in a sling. No problems so far. I’m ready to move on to bigger and better.My daughter was looking for a dresser so I fig...

Extremely Average #111: Lawn Care...Woodworking's Evil Twin

04-23-2010 03:24 AM by Ecocandle | 4 comments »

Hello Lumberjocks, Tonight’s post, on a scale of 1 to 37, is a solid 29. I am not sure if the woodworking community will care to read about my lawn adventure today, or agree that Lawn Care is the Evil twin of Woodworking, but I welcome the debate. There is one other significant aspect to tonight’s blog. I have, to some small measure, tipped the scales a little bit away from my obvious cat bias, and included a really cute picture of Maggie, the neighbor’s dog. I am s...

Table Saw Project #1: Getting Things Together

02-27-2015 04:31 AM by Jerome | 2 comments »

I purchased my first table saw a few years ago and it is still running like a champ. I have since become comfortable using dado sets, and learning how to be safe! I would love to have a nice cabinet saw, but I really do not “need” one at the moment. That being said, I have always disliked my stamped wings on the side of the table saw. For about a year or so I have looked for cast iron wings to replace them. Then I ran into the Bench Dog Pro Max cast iron router table extension. I ...

Have to Make a Digital Decision

01-20-2011 04:53 AM by wichle | 12 comments »

I have ben doing most of my work on a now 5 year old Dell Laptop. It works as well as it always has. I have updated the memory to 4Gs. Compared with the new computers this is limiting. Also the internal hard drive is skimpy and the processor is slow. Drawing does not seem as effecient as it might be, Soooo time for a decision. Do I buy another PC or migrate to an Apple. Any comments, experience, or other ideas would be appreciated.

Adirondack chair: part 1

01-16-2012 04:37 PM by Hopman | 4 comments »

Oh boy, i may have bitten off more than i can chew. After a couple easy wine barrel stave candle holders, i decided to give an adirondack chair a shot. With some rough measurements and pictures i found on the web, i took my first stab today. First, i realized this project will use almost an entire barrel. 17 staves i think. It’s going to be HEAVY. First i layed out the staves for each part of the chair. Most of the day was spent putting the chair back together, and then assembling one o...

Holly's Jasper #7: Holly's Jasper #7

Must have missed a day of posting! Blank was cut from block 4 days ago actually…... Yesterday I drew on the left side profile, carefully accounting for the distortion from the original flat paper drawing, to the multi – angled blank. Today I hope to finish the other side, and top view. Then the actual carving will begin!

"A Northern Version of YardWork" --by RusticWoodArt

02-18-2008 02:17 PM by frank | 15 comments »

A Northern Version of YardWork And so up here in the land of snow, I was in need of doing some yardwork here recently and then more of….sometimes daily.

So if you have your boots on and if you will please grab a shovel, then let us proceed for this mornings clean-up…. ....digging out my path to the shop has become a daily thing for me as I shovel...
