Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #7: First day of Level 2

02-09-2011 06:45 AM by Mark Shymanski | 5 comments »

Well I’ve turned over a new leaf by showing up early for the first class of Woodworking Level 2. This course will be about the safe and efficient use of the basic stationary power tools. To this end we will be building a project which allows us to use all of the tools presented as well as some of the skills learned in the first level. Ryan walked us through the safe use of one of the three jointers, as well as giving us advice on how to properly set up the jointer, do a face join...

05-05-2010 05:17 AM by Eric | 11 comments »

My wife and i recently moved into our new home and I have been thrilled that i finally have a space (garage) where i can do some woodworking on my own. the problem is getting rid of all the stuff that doesnt belong in there, out. one weekend i managed to get a lot of that stuff cleared out and now i need to find out how i am going to lay out the shop. I guess i should probably build some cabinets so i can store some of my tools in them and build some mobile carts so i can roll my tools a...

Outdoor Morris Chair #28: Footstools in the Fancy room

05-14-2011 05:57 PM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 0 comments »

The legs on these footstool are really tiny. I split two of them even with countersinks. Think I’d be better off with 2×2 lumber.. I did manage to get one done. Not sure what to do about a cushion for the footstool. Maybe a thick throw pillow would work? Particularly interested in what color to do the cushion. I could buy one of the smaller chair cushions and cut/sew it down into two cushions. That way I can match the fabric. Or maybe just pick one of the colors and get mate...

LJ Site #1: LJ Picnic - ONTARIO, Canada

07-11-2007 11:37 AM by MsDebbieP | 19 comments »

The LJ Picnic is fast approaching (Sunday, July 15th) and I’m getting excited! Rick and I are looking forward to our little event. So far I’ve been told by a few people (including John, Extreme Birdhouses) that they will be stopping by. I noticed that we have a few Jocks in Ontario now, some within driving distance of me and so this is an invitation to join me. The picnic will be taking place in a small town about half way between London and Toronto. If you get the itch...

Daily Update #70: July 15, 2010

07-15-2010 03:42 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

What’s happening in the shop for July 15, 2010. Working on the finish for a twin built in murphy bed for a local designer. This is a twin size that has not a lot of room for error. It will be folding out of a closet door with just a fraction of an inch of clearence. If the back wall is slightly out the wrong direction I may have a problem. The finish will be the same color as the walls. I’ll have it mixed up in a lacquer because that is what is easier for me. I’ll be...

The platform is a four leg design. The legs are 6 1/2” high with a 4 1/2” runner in between them. The legs are attached permanently to the footboard with 3 dowels and 2 pocket screws. The side rail runner is connected to the legs by a draw bolt and a half moon type connector. Two of these type of connectors in each corner along with a single dowel. Even though this is a full size the platform is 70” overall wide. There will be bookcases that will sit on the platform and ru...

An LJ Visit

07-29-2010 04:14 AM by dustbunny | 11 comments »

I had the opportunity to visit with Ellen (Ellen35) and Lorna (moonls) at Ellen’s place today.It was so nice to finally meet the LJ gals. Lenny was going to join us, but we changed the date and he was unable to make it, next time Lenny for sure. I got to tour both of their shops today, and I’ve decided they must have OCD because both of the shops are spotless and tidy. Next time I will arrive unannounced…hehe. I was amazed at Ellens cordless drill collection, every one...

And now for something different

12-09-2014 12:16 PM by OldWrangler | 3 comments »

Are you tired of making Band Saw boxes and Cutting Boards? Want a wood project a little more challenging? Why not build a 1939 Lagonda Rapide Tulipwood Tourer? Actually 9 were built in a British factory taking over 2000 man hours each. It had a V-12 engine of 255 hp and reached a top speed of 80 mph. In 2007 one of these came up for auction and sold for $450,000. Posted just because I find it fascinating but then my Entertainment Threshold is very low.

... is shavings in your cup! After finishing my morning espresso, I set the cup down next to my lathe. This is what it looked like about an hour later. It reminded my of a joke that my friend and fellow LumberJock Todd Clippinger tweeted to me.
