Juniper One Board Project Competition #4: Ready For the Finish

01-15-2011 02:30 AM by Lee Barker | 4 comments »

Ok, so it was done, and the deep breath was taken, and then on second look it was just so clunky looking. Instincts told me to introduce a curve, so I used a plastic ruler and some clamps to get the off set from the ends and scribed away and jigsawed the arcs and sanded them on the OSS. And it helped! The only “next time” thought I had was I’d bring the short and long stretchers closer—that is, the top of the long stretcher would be the same line as the bottom o...

Jet JJ-6CSX #3: Rust Removal

01-15-2011 02:29 AM by twoblacklabs | 2 comments »

Only able to get a little done so far today. Blades came out of the cutter-head much easier than anticipated and I am grateful. All of the bolts that have been removed so far are soaking in Evapo-rust. The Fence Base is undergoing electrolysis as this is written. Have not used either method before so this is sort of a comparison.

Floating Top Plant Stands #3: Assembly of the substructure--strong and square!

01-15-2011 02:21 AM by Lee Barker | 0 comments »

I’ll admit it right here: I was anxious about this. There had been enough inaccuracy in the Shopsmith tenoning setup to generate some uneasiness. Not a big deal. I very intentionally prepped both the ends and sides with sanding and biscuit slots for the deck stretchers, did one dry fit, and powered ahead full steam. I used yellow glue in the biscuit joints and polyurethane for the mortise and tenons. I acid-brushed the tenons with water and plunked the goo into the mortises. ...

Wood Tools Disciple from Laguna Tools

01-15-2011 03:11 AM by WoodToolsdisciple | 12 comments »

Hello everyone. My name is David Spoon. I’ve recently come to work for Laguna Tools (about 5 weeks now). First, I want to say that every person (and I mean every person) has been extremely nice and helpful as my education began, continues, and will continue to grow in the realm of wood, tools, creative projects, and shop escape. Although I don’t possess the same level of knowledge as my predecessors or coworkers, I can earnestly say I’m growing at an accelerated rate (kind of like my weigh...

No Hear? New Year

01-14-2011 10:07 PM by David Craig | 10 comments »

Sorry folks for the hiatus. Been a hectic beginning to the New Year but not entirely unproductive. Towards the ending of last year, an announcement was made that the company I work for has been sold to a company in India. This has caused me to reflect a little on life, evaluate my future, and come to terms with the fact that I have made the transition to my middle aged years. Most of this will be fodder for another blog. In the interim, I spent a little bit of time working on my turnings. ...

“Grandpa, I broke my sword and I need a new one.”

01-14-2011 09:32 PM by TopamaxSurvivor | 14 comments »

It looks like more grandpa woodwork coming this weekend. When I made these swords: , the bridal joint at the top of one was a bit loose. I thought it was good enough the glue would hold it. Without a good solid joint, it broke at the hilt. Lesson learned by novice WW ;-)

I can do that

When you comment on something nice that a person you meet has, have you ever noticed the way they say, “I bought this here” or “I picked this up in this country?” Sometimes it seems like they are saying, “The Sheppard tended the sheep, the sheer harvested the wool, then the spinster spun the yarn, and the artisan knitted the sweater, but I, yes I, bought it.” As if the purchase made them part, and even the most important part of the making process.
