Extremely Average #169: Bargain Woodworking Magazines Rock!

06-20-2010 12:24 AM by Ecocandle | 5 comments »

Hello LJ’s, I love reading about woodworking, especially in magazine form. There is a lot online that is great, and goodness knows I read a bunch of blogs and stuff, but it isn’t the same as flipping the pages. Tonight’s blog is about a nice find of older magazines and how I realized that they are a pretty good deal. Brian

Being a woodworker

03-28-2012 11:02 PM by RussellAP | 3 comments »

A lot of people think of woodworkers as guys running saws and drills all the time. They don’t see a woodworker, maybe a construction worker is what they see. Dealing with power tools is almost the least of what I do as a woodworker. 1. Come up with some project idea2. Shop for the right kind of wood3. Design and redesign 4. Cut the wood out5. Sand or plane the wood6. Pre-condition the wood7. Sand8. Put the color on9. Sand again10. Seal wood11. Sand again12. Put together As you can...

I have uploaded a video of what push blocks and push sticks I use in my shop. Not all table saw accessories are created equal. Please watch my video and see the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to push blocks. Here is the link to the video:

Howdy, Howdy, Howdy

OK guys, I just have a horrible time getting pix into the blog and so you will not see any here again. I need to get my website updated but time is always an issue. It is a lot of work. Being self-employed is never about time off. You can check out this link and you can view my various projects. They are very simple postings mostly for sharing with my wife without the need to build web pages. Now you are part of the “in” group and ...

A new workbench #2: Cutting all that wood

08-23-2011 08:33 PM by Murdock | 2 comments »

I finally got around to finalizing a design so I could begin cutting the wood. I started by purchasing 2 sheets of 3/4 sanded ply and 7 2×8 fir boards, I will also be using some MDF I had on hand. “Bench in Potentia” After a new TS blade and a whole lot of ripping I went from a stack of a few boards to a stack of more smaller boards. I then put together the 2 end assemblies, this is where I made my first mistake. I have 3 different widths of boards I cut out ...

The Workshop #1: Setup

10-06-2009 07:40 PM by efsavage | 6 comments »

It’s been a busy, and expensive, week. Picked up so many tools I haven’t even finished setting them all up yet, much less playing with them. The Ridgid 13” Thickness Planer R4330 was a breeze to set up. Unpacked it, attached the dust collector, and it was ready to go. I spent more time cleaning up shavings from the test run because the shopvac was clogged (before I connected it) than I did setting it up! The Ridgid 6” jointer JP0610, however, not so easy. The...

Ruminations, Philosophy, and Workshop Antics.......... #13: Lumberjocks Mentored Projects

03-01-2010 04:01 AM by Jim Bertelson | 11 comments »

My Super Sled is the demo item for this discussion: This continues to be a technically interesting thing to build. Of course, I started out with a simple design more like Neil’s, but everyone has urged me to add all the gizmos…........and every gizmo prolongs the build. So LJ’s has slowed me down, but I will end up with a more versatile device. I don’t know if LJ’s is gonna be a help or a hindrance in whatever the final product is like…......but I am ...

sawdust chronicles challenge #1: need a little advice

09-11-2010 03:21 PM by BigTiny | 7 comments »

Greetings all. Well, the plans are coming along, but I’ve hit a bit of a roadblock. To make the Rubik’s cube pedestal I will need six different colors, and they must be different enough to stand out against each other. This could be hard to do if I stick with natural wood, so I’ve been thinking of going with a single species with a light color such as white oak or maple, then dye it. I want the grain to be obvious, so something transparent is in order, plus, to keep wi...
