Plywood Storage

1807 days ago by JSW | 4 comments »

A couple of months ago I saw some pictures of a plywood storage rack that fit into a corner, it sort of projected straight out of the corner at 45 degrees to each wall. Full sheets stood upright and would slide into the center of the rack with shelves for smaller cut offs on either side. My problem is now I can not find this article and was hoping that someone else could direct me to it or something similar.

I need to learn how to spray Lacquer, need Info please.

1807 days ago by Pete_Jud | 8 comments »

I, by mistake a couple of days ago, tried lacquer for the first time. After all these years of using Poly and oil finishes like “Norm” does, I have found a lot of advantages for one of the produces that I build. I have a dedicated finishing room that I can add filters and venting to, and have clean compressed air in the shop as well. Just to many choices as to how to spray it. Any help is needed. ie, what type of gun, clean-up time between guns, ect. Thanks in advance.

My Mini LJ tour 5-7/8-09

1807 days ago by Karson | 25 comments »

I spend Thursday 5/7 taking my son to my daughters home to spend the week while my wife was out of town. Our first stop was at Greg McNabbs home in West Virginia. LJ Dave with one of Greg’s dogs. The three of us with Greg at his home. I had to buy a new camera about 15 minutes from Greg’s home. So excuse the second picture. We went out to a local Greek Diner to have a nice meal. It was then on to Woodstock, Virginia to my daughters, the Kramers Albert with my lat...

Chair for the study desk unit for my son #2: day 3, attaching seat to the legs

1807 days ago by Junji | 7 comments »

Now I am already worried about using rustic logs for the chair… The logs are pretty much straight, I thought. But actually not, not at all. So for the 2 legs, the point where they attach the seat are not the same. The right one will be about 15 mm forward. But I started, and that was the original idea… Mortise and tenon are different from what I usually do, but it’s got to be good and tight one, need to make it strong. For mortises, it was an easy part. Just cut square...

This is a continuation of #5 in this series.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I have the slat wall paneling completed. Now how am I going to arrange my tools?

Other big box stores handle similar products. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This is the last wall, I ripped my boards in half to 1 5/8”. I like it better this way.

First REAL Plane!!!

1807 days ago by Geologist | 11 comments »

Hey LJs!!! I am sooo excited right now, I just received my first real hand plane, a Lie-Nielsen Low angle block plane! I have been saving up for this for weeks now, and it has been worth it. I figured for being my first, I would start off with a non-adjustable mouth, and then when I can afford/need one I will get the Lee Valley premiums. This plane is a beauty, the only thing I wish Lie Nielsen did was stamp a date on when the tool was manufactured, that way, when I pass it onto my kids, t...

Craft Mall

1808 days ago by Rustic | 11 comments »

Just wanted everyone to know that soon I will have my stuff on permanent display at a local craft mall. I have been wanting to do this for a long time. I found this place in an ad in a local paper. The guy is charging $45.00 a month for a 4’x3’ space. Right now he has no wood products there. So this an opportunity to get my name out there. I am geeked about this. Now I have to build up my stock. Just though that I would share the good news

1808 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 9 comments »

The most common topic request for Safety Week was dust and respirators. So here’s a quick review of the dust and fumes that can make our lives miserable in the shop, and why we need respirators for pro-active protection. And below you will find a links to the exact respirator setup I like to use: the 3m 7500 Series. Some convenient links if you are looking to purchase this respirator system: Small, Medium, Large.
