Boat building #1: In need of spiritual applicant with free plans

09-27-2009 06:08 PM by threehands | 2 comments »

Hello all. I am in need. A need to fill the void. The void is an empty spot. The empty spot in an area of the shop I haven’t seen in years. There actually is a floor under all that “junk” as the bride would say. (I say golden treasures.) But, what I need now is spiritual help and a set of free plans for a drift boat or dory. I know I can build one, just need the plans. Have looked and downloaded several but cant find ones concerning a Montana style. Those guys craft some s...

A Great Breakfast Rita and I had a great breakfast and visit with Dave Mitchell and his wife. They are passing through Billings and stayed at the campgrounds down the street since they are pulling their little camp trailer. We had a nice visit last night. I gave him the shop tour and showed the few pieces that we have been able to keep over the years. Now they have left it is time to get back on this little project for Rita. A Recap (Short Version) I started making this project...

Delta New Unisaw #1: Delta New Unisaw

09-27-2009 03:13 PM by Mike | 5 comments »

I have been shopping for a top quality saw and I was leaning Sawstop because of the Safety Feature,but I must say that I did have a chance to look over really well this time the new Unisaw by Delta. I was very impressed with the saw. To begin, they did redeisgn a new mobile base for the which is just as beefy as the table board. I like the fact the Trunnion System was a single cast iron system, the bevel guage which can be adjusted in the front. dual front cranks, they worked pretty smoo...

Gettin' fixina tune up my Unisaw #10: You gotta do whatcha gotta do

09-27-2009 06:30 AM by Bothus | 4 comments »

Hi Lumberjocks, I couldn’t believe what a productive day it was today. Unfortunately, I was working on the Honey Do List not the Unisaw. However, I did manage to buy a few more things I need. I bought some black Rust-oleum for the parts of the saw that need it. And even though I don’t care for Harbor Freight much I went there and bought a dial indicator and I am very happy with it. I just returned the one I bought from Amazon. I don’t want to start a rank but I&...

I Met LJ Member Dave Mitchell Tonight!

09-27-2009 06:19 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 12 comments »

LJ member Dave Mitchell and his wife stopped by tonight. Dave, also known as Splinters, lives in the far northwestern corner of Montana in West Glacier. That is at the western gate of Glacier National Park. He and his wife are traveling to the midwest for a visit with family and they had to come right by my place in Billings, MT. Since I live just spittin’ distance off the freeway and the KOA is just down the street they decided to stop by. Dave is a real Montana kind of guy, a...

Learning the Basics #1: Learning to mill lumber by hand

09-27-2009 06:04 AM by postoastie | 1 comment »

I’ve just started learning about woodworking and collecting tools. One thing I’ve learned so far is that I should have made a jointer and a thickness planer some of my first purchases. I didn’t. I chose other power tools I thought I needed, and now I will have to wait on the jointer and planer. Oh, well.In the mean time, I am teaching myself to mill to dimension by hand the lumber I am using. I am making a workbench, or trying to. I want to make it with all wood and gl...

A Preview of something different for me

09-27-2009 04:44 AM by clieb91 | 2 comments »

Ok, So this coming week I will be married for 5 years (how time flies). It just happens that the traditional gift for a 5th anniversary is wood (How lucky!). I wanted to do something a little different and beyond what I have done before. After looking at various ideas on the web for small boxes to put something else in.. I found RunnerDucks small keepsake box. I thought this was a great idea and would hold the other gift well. So I decided to first make a prototype out of what else.. a 2×...
