Auction SALE !

10-08-2010 06:17 AM by canadianchips | 1 comment »

Just came home from another sale tonight. Lots of trinkets (4 hours worth) Lots of tools.(The man had a stroke and sold everything) I think I may own a router that runs well when bit is facing down, it really squeels when I tip it upside down. OH well wasted $15. The 1 1/2 hp router with 1/2” collet seems to run well. I now have a router for the 1/2” shank bits that I bought on sale 3 months ago ! Its like I knew ONE day I would have a modern router ! lol. Most of his corded tools...

New tool gloat

08-22-2009 03:32 AM by Rustic | 9 comments »

Well, I finaly joined the air tool ranks. I just bought a 3 gal. air compressor with 2 inch brad nailer. Got it from HD for $99.00 on clearance. It is a husky with a regulator on it and storage for all the accessories it came with. I asked the wife if I could buy it because I needed it for the flag cases. I also got some walnut 1×10’s 6 pieces from Quixote. The wood arrived on Wed. Yesterday I was sent to the hospital w/chest pain and numbness in my left arm. It turned out to...

Extremely Average #175: I wrote a guest blog piece...

06-26-2010 04:31 AM by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

Hello LJ’s, Today I wrote a guest blog post. Sometimes I get requests to write some drivel for someone else, and I usually agree. The problem is that on those days, when I use my best stuff for another blog, I am left with just dreck for my own blog. I decided to give an update on StumbleUpon and how it had done since I wrote those pieces. If you are curious about SU, check it out. Brian

AGING OF SURFACE #4: Replica of the shelf from Kizhi isle, Republic of Karelia, the 10th century

06-15-2013 06:47 PM by Walther von Einik | 1 comment »

The idea of making this simple and natural by it’s natural aging properties was originated after looking the photos, which were made in the expedition in the rare Orthodox areas of the far Russia. I made the photos of natural and many centuries’ terms of the wood aging on the Kizhi isle, Republic of Karelia, people started to live here in 10th century, started to live with slavonic people. There are very many monuments of the wooden craft, still have them now in the good quality. Their Orthod...

Sherwood Forest #1: Pondering Our Wooden Orphans

10-12-2007 10:46 PM by A.W. "Pappy" Ford | 15 comments »

I find myself on the drive into work this morning looking at the world through a new set of eyes: everywhere I look all the sudden I see scraps of usable wood going to waste: burn piles, stray fence boards, stacks of broken shipping pallets, old furniture destined for the landfill. Would it be obsessive if I said I have an entirely new appreciation of twigs? It just seems to be everywhere and one of those things I didn’t notice before being bitten by the woodworking bug. I want to...

Constructing "Old 99" #3: A bumpy ride.

08-27-2008 01:59 PM by MrWoody | 4 comments »

Unfortunately I got involved in the next part and forgot to take pictures. The camera is now in the shop. I’ll do my best to explain what I did.After re-reading this, I decided that even I couldn’t understand what I did, so I used a piece of scrap poplar and made the cuts so I could take pictures. Back to page 2 of the plans. I mentioned earlier that a piece needed to be fit between the turned boiler and the base. On page 3 there is another piece that needs to fit on top of the boiler. To s...

Treasure Box #3: Top Panel and mitered dovetails

02-24-2014 08:31 PM by TerryDowning | 3 comments »

So, I thought I wood try my 45 for making the top panel. Now I fully understand Roy Underhill’s and Patrick Leach’s comments and concerns regarding the 45. While it is a versatile lane. It does not do well when the grain is interlocked and/or the wood is hard. Coupled with the narrowness of this stock. It was not looking good. So, time to burn some electrons.The down side of power tools are:setup timeadequate time for testingyou make mistakes faster. I did not spend eno...

heating my shop

10-23-2010 03:25 AM by driscie | 6 comments »

I live in New Mexico just outside of Albuquerque where the weather most of the time is awesome. In the winter the temps can go down into the high 20’s at night, my is 20×20 and well insulated. I am looking for ways to heat the shop, have considered multiple ways. I like it comfortable enough to work in a shirt. Electric is too expensive, scared of a wood stove and it does take up valuable space, ductless gas heaters do not work in a dusty environment and that leaves only duc...
