Off we go to the NC/SC Lumberjocks picnic

10-12-2009 02:56 AM by huff | 7 comments »

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...

More than just woodworking...

10-12-2009 01:20 AM by Kevin Wilson | 5 comments »

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...

Unisaw upgrade #1: Part 1

10-12-2009 01:13 AM by hairy | 11 comments »

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

10-12-2009 12:35 AM by Jim Bertelson | 3 comments »

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...

I'm 2 days past my 3 year anniversary

10-11-2009 08:48 PM by jockmike2 | 33 comments »

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 ...
