I admit it. I haven’t made the time to be on here much lately. What I do notice is: my buddy list. Checked in and a lot of “My Buddies ” havent been on lately either. Average 125-350 days. I guess as our lives change and we have other interests. In my case I have NO computor service at home. I can only access fron library in town or at work.(I now work at a school, doors close and gate locked up at 4pm !) Library is NOT for me, I have to sit with other 20 people at ROUND tab...

The grinch that stole Christmas. #1: Christmas gifts delayed?

12-13-2007 06:22 AM by IowaWoodcrafter | 2 comments »

I’m making twelve mantle clocks for Christmas this year. Each of my four sisters will receive one, my brother in-law, father in-law, mother in-law as well as my two oldest children. My two youngest sons are in the Navy and don’t have anywhere to keep a mantle clock. I’m also keeping one for the house. I’m not sure what I’ll do with the remaining two clocks. Anyway, I ordered the clock inserts from last week and they were shipped on Monday. I&#...

Pangapanga sideboard #3: Dances with (de)laminations

11-06-2009 12:39 AM by RobertHorton | 1 comment »

New bandsaw blades finally arrived, so it’s time to transform one thick inlay into several thin inlays. One small void deep in the middle of the lamination caused one of the arcs to open up. Theoretically, I could superglue this and put it back in the form. We’ll hold onto this as a spare in case I goof one of the others. The design also calls for two straight inlays, so I cut the vinyl for those before changing the saw setup. Stupid me, I received a sharp reminder of...

I am always keeping my eye out for deals and do alot of walking around at flea markets and what not. The other day I was at a Habitat for Humanity Restore and found all of these hand tools left to right I found a Stanley Handyman plane, a stanley #9 1/2 a Stanley 71 1/2 router plane, a stanley bedrock plane, a stanley #53. In front is a Cincinatti tool works shave and in back is a disston model 68 dovetail saw. THe best part of all of this is I got it all for around 45 bucks and now h...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #712: A New Project in the Works

05-25-2012 09:59 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It feels good to have some solid directions to move again. It isn’t that I haven’t been busy, but being able to focus on pushing forward a new design is probably my favorite part of the whole process. There is something about taking a vision that you have in your mind and slowly seeing it come to life. I know you all understand that because I have seen the same thing happen to many of you. There is something exciting when we transpose an idea to an actual tactical piece that ...

Owning your own business (Post #2)

09-21-2010 02:12 PM by nate22 | 1 comment »

Hello fellow lumberjocks. Thank you for all the comments and advice you guys gave me on my first post last week. To answer few of the questions that I got asked is I do build the complete bunk bed or loft bed whatever the customer ordered. Then after they are done either the customer picks up or I deliver the bed to them. I do it both ways. It just depends if the customer can pick it up or they live to far away to pick it up so then I deliver it. Besides that this last week has been kin...
