What a great day we had in High Point, NC saturday. Tracy, Lauren and I drove up from Myrtle Beach,SC (about 4 1/2 hour drive) to attend the Lumberjock’s picnic in High Point, NC. It was held at the Valspar Color Studio and I’ll tell you a little more about that in a little bit. Nothing like a “tailgate party” to get to meet new friends and talk woodworking. Jerry (Cabinetmaster) cooked us up some hot dogs and hamburgers to go with the macoroni salad, baked...
Hey everybody, I want to share a link to a couple of news articles that came out today in my local newspaper. The stories cover a couple of guys that I have met and one I have come to know. First is Scott Morrison and he makes a living selling the Maloof style rockers. He lives in Columbus, MT a small town west of Billings. The link is to the local paper here in Billings, Montana. http://billingsgazette.com/business/article_003d75da-b5f5-11de-95f6-001cc4c03286.html There are a ...
Just to let you know that the surgery went well and I am not 5 days post op. Recovering well. HugsBelinda
It’s a glorious and terrible thing I’ve went and started. It seems I’ve gotten a bit stuck. No…it’s worse than that… I got sick this weekend…spent 3 days in bed. I hate not accomplishing anything, but I’m not entirely sure why. My family went away today for a prescheduled “annual family leaf trip” and I missed it. Now the weekend is gone, and tomorrow I get to rise and shine to head off to another day at work…after anot...
How do you pickup a tablesaw by yourself? Here’s what I did. The mobile base was a piece of trash when I bought this. The former owner said he had nothing but trouble with it. I replaced the lift caster, and it almost worked, but didn’t last. I finally went and got the Rockler all terrain mobile base,and the B set of extensions. http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=21257&filter=mobile%20base I cut a 4×4 in half, and placed them crossways under the table...
Here is the mock up of the door and drawer fronts for the kitchen cabinets. These are paint grade cabinets and will be finished in white with a dark gray glaze to highlight the profile grooves. I am looking for the cabinet guys to critique the proportions, drawer and door placement and anything else that looks wrong :/ This is my first Cabinet job that i am being paid for and i don’t want it to have to be redone in a year or 2 because i made some idiotic mistake!Anyway the cabinet pictu...
Revamping and Updating my Old Shop #4: Tuning up, and a tiny project done, with an outrageous time expenditure......, I'll never learn
I was hoping to be further along this weekend in my quest to become a real woodworker. You know, real woodworkers have real shops…..... And I was going to talk about my plans for the real shop…that’s what real woodworkers do…I know…I have learned that on Lumberjocks. Well, just like when I found out I needed a new radial arm saw table, shop maintenance took precedence. That project, where I was forced to retune the radial arm saw, brought to mind some basic need...
Hello all. i’m a fairly new wood worker, trying to grow and become even better as all of us are. At this point in time i’m honing my skills by making cutting boards. I’m always interested in new ideas to make. as soon as i get pic on the computer i will be able to share.
Hip, Hip, Hoorayyy! I’ve been a Lumberjock 3 + years today. Gosh, where has time gone. I got to tell you all this, I can’t think of one person on this site I dislike. This is the GREATEST BUNCH OF PEOPLE I’VE EVER BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH. I mean that from the bottom of my heart. You all are the greatest. I feel like I’m apart of a huge family and I already have 7 brothers and sisters. I don’t want to single out any certain people, but you know who you are, you have ...
