Extremely Average #50: The Women of Ames

02-21-2010 07:08 AM by Ecocandle | 9 comments »

Sitting in the twenty-fourth row, seat 3, I prepare to watch the Iowa State Cyclones take on the Missouri Tigers in women’s basketball. To those who don’t follow NCAA division I women’s basketball, the Cyclones are one of the top programs in the country. They are consistently in the top 20, and are currently ranked 13th. When attending an ISU game, be it men or women’s basketball, one is sure to be impressed by ‘Hilton Magic’. The magic comes from the boisterous cheers of the fans, wh...

Delta 14" Bandsaw Restoration, Pic Heavy

02-21-2010 06:00 AM by davidroberts | 18 comments »

On the way to restoring an older 12” King-Seely bandsaw, I ran across this Rockwell (Delta) model 28-200 open stand 14” bandsaw born in 1980 or 81. Thanks MedicKen for helping with the date. I bought it off the local CL, and probably paid a few $$ more than I should have. Such is life. 14” bandsaws like this don’t come up to often in these parts. It had been neglected and oversprayed with paint, more than twice. The overspray was so thick, I couldn’t find t...

didn’t get as much done as i wanted to today. looks like Eli might be taking the lead on his table… haha alright. today i did some work on the feet. for the feet i am going to be going with pad feet. Right now i have extra material at the bottom just to leave myself room to work with on the feet. so here we go. i started off by cutting out my feet with all of the angles and everything. getting the angles was as simple as setting my piece of wood over the drawing in the position...

My BIL, whom I have mentioned on several occasions, on top of the other hardships he has endured this past year (diabetic coma, kidney failure, dialysis, disability, divorce etc…) had another trauma this week, his beloved Turkish This has got to be one of the coolest cats I have ever met… Yesterday I took off early, to dig the grave, prep a simple kitty casket, and we proceeded to bury him.

Another Craigslist Jackpot!

02-21-2010 01:51 AM by Brad_Nailor | 5 comments »

Sometimes Craigslist is a real pain…but sometimes it pays off to be persistent! I was emailing with this guy who was liquidating his wood shop and he had a Kreg Precision measuring kit for sale new in the box for $100 bucks. So after a bit of email tag, I went over to take a look at it. He had a bunch of other stuff for sale but when I looked at the Kreg setup it was unused like he said but all the assembly hardware was missing…just the major components were there. He was already ...

I have to say how amazed I am every time I click on the “projects” link. The quality of work on here makes me think I’m looking at a high end furniture/woodworking shop… which, of course I am. But when the people who are doing this excellent work turn out to be such nice down-to-earth people, I am truly grateful to be a member of Lumberjocks. I tip my hat to each and every one of you (well, I don’t usually wear hats, except maybe a toque when I’m out wit...

Window shelving #8: woodworking done

02-21-2010 12:14 AM by Rustic | 4 comments »

Well. My part is done. I have built all the units 3 total. Nancy (my wife) is painting them. I will install them when the paint is dry. I will be taking pics after I install them. The next big project will be the bed frame that DaveR help design. I will build that in the spring when the weather warms up. Now it is on to building storage for my tools.
