To all the LumberJocks Happy thanksgiving
After growing up and living most of my life in the United States, I had come to take certain things for granted. It was only after moving here to Canada six years ago that I began to realize that things are sometimes different in other places and that there is a much bigger world out there. Now that I am in communication with others from all over the world, it is even more evident to me that these differences exist. Since I have been here in Canada, I have found that the people here are ...
Our radio station’s in the process of it’s first major renovation in 33 years, and that means things are getting tossed. But there’s a friendly tek who knows about my shop and projects. So far it’s been shelving for the garage shop, a metal Epson roller printer stand that fits nicely in the wood shop and could probably handle several hundred pound but’s no serving as an odds and sods cart that allows me acces to the forgoten corner with the taps and dies an...
Well it has all been and gone and now I have enough material to write several blogs..I have so much material, pics and vids that I have started a new series.. First off the whole trip was a comedy of errors but more of that later.. Here are a few shots taken at the show. Walking down the ramp into the Silverdome itself…Taken on the Thurday afternoon during set up. This venue is the home of the Tasmanian Institute of Sport and houses a velodrome and a highly polished timber f...

For those of you following the evolution of my motorized router lift product, here’s a new video that shows the retail product in action. From this video, you can get a look at the features of the device and the operations that you can perform with it. The PowerLift by MLCS Woodworking is a truly unique device that expands the operations you can perform on your router table. With a foot-activated Motorized Router Lift you can perform operations similar to that of a plunge router ...
Don’t you just hate it when this happens !! Today was supposed to be the day I finished this project. Tomorrow I was hoping to get it to the photographer’s. The next day I was going to post the completed cabinet. Oh well, maybe next week. As I was finishing up sanding for what I hoped would be the last coat of wb poly on the box, I noticed a little flaw and thought I should probably sand it out. Well, apparently, I probably shouldn’t have. As I sanded the finish thi...
The second requirement of this “Suggestion” Box, was that it be locking. To that end, I began cutting out a hasp, starting with the loop through which the lock will pass…It’s a good thing these are small parts!! My scraps of Mahogany are getting awfully small… It took about 20 minutes of musing, and about 5 minutes of cutting to get here…Since this box already has “Ears”, I’ve been referring to this as the “Nose”... Next came t...
As the sun sets on the eve of the beginning of the Holiday Season, and leads us into Thanksgiving Day in the United States, I’d like to take a moment to wish all the Lumberjocks the happiest of Thanksgivings, and to thank you for your readership and support.

Happy Thanksgiving! May you all hav...
