Meeting another LJ GaryK

03-02-2011 08:36 PM by Chips | 9 comments »

While in Texas last week I called fellow LJ GaryK and asked if I could come by and see his shop. He graciously consented so away I went. His shop is about 5 times larger than mine and well equipped. I must say that the time I spent in his shop was one of the best days I have had in a while. We talked about his tools and he spent time to show me how to set them up to work to very close tolerances. He pulled out his wood samples box (beautiful box) and we spent at least an hour just talking ...

Workbench #8: New leg vise hardware and a design revision

03-02-2011 06:50 PM by HungryTermite | 5 comments »

I decided in January that I really wanted a wooden screw for my leg vise. I jut like the way they look and they seem to work just the same. So, I placed an order for a screw and nut from Lake Erie Toolworks and they finally arrived yesterday! The screw is beautiful. I assumed there would be some chipping or tearout on the threads but they are perfect. It basically arrived in a condition ready to be finished and installed. I am thinking just some BLO and wax will be the finsih. ItR...

Corner Inlay Table #12: Almost there...The big reveal!

03-02-2011 04:46 PM by Rick | 2 comments »

Took a breath, gave the table tops some time, and then took the tape off. Even with some of the lessons learned regarding the mask, there were some places the stain was able to sneak under the over-laps, but some more where it didn’t. Next – I have to put the second part of the stain recipe on the larger base, and tone the smaller base a bit darker. Will probably have that same adjustment on the larger base But overall, they’re coming together. F...

Next week I say goodbye to Kansas and all the friends that I have made here. My wife accepted a job in Omaha Nebraska and we will be moving on March 11th. Any fellow LumberJocks in the Omaha area? Is there anything similar to Woodcraft in that area?

Workshop upgrades #1: insulation, a/c, and mitersaw bench. or how I spent my refund.

03-02-2011 04:26 PM by mpatrick | 7 comments »

I finally got around to doing some upgrades in the shop the past 2 weeks. I’ll start with a few before pictures, or really where I remembered to start taking pictures. This when i started clearing out the shop so i could begin.Just for reference, the planer, drill press, and ridgid sander are usually against the pegboard wall. As you can see it was a disaster. Everything was just kinda slapped together and I was just getting fed up with having shimmy aroun...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #272: Busy Times

03-02-2011 02:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I got up this morning to an ominous email that threatened to shut down my website. Before the sleep was out of my eyes, I was signing into online chat with customer support from the place that hosts my site to find out what was up. The notice said that my account was delinquent, but I knew for a fact that not only did I pay it, but the charge already showed up on my online credit card statement. Surely this must be an error. I went to my credit card statement again, and sure enough th...
