So why have I not been blogging much lately?

12-14-2010 09:56 PM by dbhost | 4 comments »

Real simple, I have had very little shop time, and what shop time I have had, has had very little to do with woodworking… Aside from the projects you all know about, or I think you do because you read my blog… I have also been decking my attic, packing still more insulation in there, replacing a busted AC drain pan / line, replacing sheet rock, texturing etc… Just this past weekend I have… #1. Floated, and taped the closet ceiling in the guest bath, textured a...

Local Woodworking Clubs

12-14-2010 09:40 PM by MikeGCNY | 1 comment »

Meeting and sharing ideas online is great, but there is something intimate about getting together with a group of people in person to discuss and share woodworking experiences, tips and techniques. On Long Island, we have the Long Island Woodworkers Club. Tonight is this years last meeting of the Cabinetmakers special interest group. Anyone in the area is welcome to attend. http://www.liwoodworkers.org On that note, perhaps it would be a great feature if you could locate others on L...

xmas presents 3

Well, I finally finished the doll cradles. I have both of them sanded and sitting in my basement waiting for painting. I have the day off tomorrow so I figure I’ll do it then when I have more time. I think they turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself. Next is two bracelets. One for my wife and one for her mother. They are going to be cut from a pattern by Steve Good. You can find the pattern here They seem a bit tricky, but I want to give them a try. I’m mainly w...

Wow! This isn't grandpa's old Shopsmith

12-14-2010 06:29 PM by 8iowa | 27 comments »

Actually, it is. I’m the grandpa, and I’ve owned this Shopsmith since ‘83. Through the years, this original 500 model has been upgraded, first to 510, then to 520, and now to the ultimate upgrade, the Power Pro. What is the Power Pro? Simply put, this is a headstock powered with a DVR, digital variable reluctance motor, whose performance goes beyond that of DC and AC variable frequency motors. The heart of the motor is a computer controller that can switch magnets on and off several hu...

African Lumber Adventure #1: A Woodworker's Visit to Knysna, South Africa

12-14-2010 02:09 PM by Andy Brownell | 8 comments »

What does a woodworker do while on vacation in South Africa? I recently returned from a trip to South Africa with my wife and in-laws, which included stays in Cape Town, Plettenburg Bay, and Knysna. As a lumber jock, I was excited to learn that there was a rather large, sustainable lumber industry in the town of Knysna. Knysna (located here), is situated along the coast of the southern tip of Africa, about 450 km from Cape Town. The drive takes you along the N2 highway through scrub...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #194: Project Progress and Thinking Back

12-14-2010 02:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

So much for a winter wonderland. Yesterday it rained and rained and RAINED! Needless to say, all the snow is long gone and what is left is a wet and muddy mess. Last night it was quite windy, but it seems that the wind has died down quite a bit and it is much calmer today. But looking in the forecast (which I don’t really hang my hat on) it is supposed to be above freezing at least for the next several days. So it will be quite messy. YUCK! I know there are many people who don...

Building My Work Shop #8: Belsaw Molder Planer or Another Craigslist Bargain

12-14-2010 09:51 AM by Crushgroovin | 8 comments »

As some of you may know I like to browse craigslist from time to time. Mostly in the morning during the two or three hours it takes to get my body to the point where I can walk without too much pain. Well while browsing for Planers I happened upon a 5 HP single phase Belsaw Molder Planer. The add said it was in working condition but needed some work, the guy was moving shops and didn’t want to move it so it could be had for $300. Now that got me curious about what kind of work it needed...
