Rehab Rigid TS3650/ Experimenting with electrolysis #2: Rehab Rigid TS3650/ Experimenting with electrolysis

10-26-2014 01:09 AM by CudaDude | 0 comments »

LJackson asked for a picture after removing the table from the bath and before I sanded it. This part of the table sat for a day before I got around to sanding it, so it had a lot of surface rust. This section was rusted the worst and has some slight pitting in it.

Translating can be fun!

10-02-2014 10:04 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

Now for some lighter news. Lately I’ve been translating the text from some of my projects into Esperanto and posting them on my Ligneroj Blog. Believe it or not I find this relaxing and fun. I’m the only Esperanto speaker in the world who is a woodworker, or at least none of the others have spoken up yet. When I’m translating a project description, if I have to figure out what to call a router bit or some odd tool, I also find a picture of it and put it at the end o...

New new shop addition

07-17-2010 03:59 AM by DrJosh | 7 comments »

I recently posted a question about bandsaws in one of the forums and I received tons of great information and advice. The forthcoming and helpful nature of all the guys and gals on this site never ceases to amaze me. Anyway, I stumbled upon a store here in Nashville that I was completely unaware of…General Industrial Supply. I decided to stop in after work yesterday and boy am I glad I did. I picked up a 12” JET bandsaw from their “scratch & dent” area and I only f...

had this piece-a-wood with me for nearly 20 years ... still hasn't found the right project

had this piece of wood with me for nearly 22 years … still hasn’t found the right project Got this piece of white ash when we lived in Denver. Bought it out of a short box at Paxtons Beautiful Hardwoods near Arvada. Was making a rocking girraffe for my son Nathan who hadn’t even learned to walk yet. Still got it. It is in the attic. Perfect condition, except for the “red cedar” I used for the ears broke off. ... and the 2 inch round white wood googley ...

My newest workshop addition

05-16-2011 05:46 AM by DrJosh | 2 comments »

I recently decided to upgrade my table saw. My budget and space still only allows a benchtop style table saw, but I was able find a pretty good upgrade, in my opinion. I purchased a DeWalt benchtop saw. I really liked this saw because it has standard miter slots, and a real riving knife. I plan to build a descent cross-cut sled for this saw as well as some other jigs that I haven’t been able to make/use on other benchtop saws. I used it all afternoon and found that it cuts well and is a...

Teenage woodworkers

01-15-2010 01:21 AM by zlatanv | 6 comments »

Just saw an honorable mention to some teenage wood workers in Wood Mag, March 2010, fellow LJs, Kosta Viennas, 14, and Denis Rezendes, 16. Keep up the good work!! Just a note to Kosta, saw your home profile nice to see you take a new road from your friends you lost, best of luck to ya! Even if not that much scares you and thats why you don’t like safety glasses, it’s still nice to be able to get older and continue woodworking with both eyes and all 10 fingers. Good luck!!

Introduction #1: Welcome

08-22-2007 03:38 AM by WayneS | 11 comments »

Welcome to my blog! You’ve stumbled upon the ramblings of a rank beginner that has long dreamed of one day possessing the skills of a master craftsman that can turn a block of mahogany into a work of art. While those aspirations will probably remain dreams for a while, I am taking my first steps at becoming a skilled woodworker. After debating on whether to equip a small shop and start a process of experimentation or take a class and narrow the learning curve, I’ve decided t...

Digital Decision Finale

03-04-2011 07:33 AM by wichle | 8 comments »

Well . . . I jumped ship from Windows to Apple. After working with windows from 3.1 thru 7 I slid a Mac Pro in next to the Dell M90. It is a different, very different experience. I spent a lot of time at the Apple store, trying to do some of the kinds of things that i use a computer for. The people were very helpful with questions, and left me alone to “putz”. I finally took the plunge! I decided to try to totally stop thinking Windows and approach the Apple as if it was my...

Rocket Bookcase #1: The Design

08-17-2013 12:03 AM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Wallowing the success of the princess castle bookcase, I quickly realized that with our third child due in February, it was high time to make Keaton a bookcase of his while I can. It’s too cold in the winter for painting and finishing, so with Sara’s blessing, I finalized the design and began gathering materials. Here’s the idea: Keaton loves…I mean LOVES rockets. We have a narrow but tall space in his room that just begs for something like a narrow boo...
