Chicago Lumberjocks Meetup/Woodworking Show December 2009 #2: Need some response if LumberJocks is going to be a part of this

11-24-2009 05:27 PM by kshipp | 3 comments »

I saw the photos from the Sacramento event and it looks like everyone had a really good time. You can check out the pictures here and here. You can look at the previous post in this blog for more information on the Chicago event. We need some people to at least say they are going to be attending the show. Ideally we would have some people who would be willing to sit at a LumberJocks booth for an hour or even give a short (15 minute) class. I need to get back to the people at the Woodwor...

Next Leg of the Journey

11-24-2009 06:04 AM by David Craig | 7 comments »

Throughout my life, I have had incidents where fate comes in and seems to give me a push in a direction that, in hindsight, seems to be where I needed to launch to begin the next leg of the journey. A few days ago, I responded to a Dremel update on Facebook and won a new tool to add to my collection. In the process, I met a woodworker named Jordan Straker who befriended me on Facebook and recommended this site. So now I am here and all moved in to my new virtual workshop and already feel quit...

Entertainment Center #2: Lumber selection

11-24-2009 05:26 AM by Loogie | 4 comments »

Cherry was specified for the piece so we took a drive up to Hearne Hardwoods in Oxford, Pa. They have a fantastic selection of Cherry. I really wanted to get some wide boards for the top and sides. When we got to Hearne they showed my some 12” wide boards that they had that were almost completely clear and just under 12’ long. The problem was that the entertainment center is to be 6’ long so I would be just shy with one board and I wasn’t willing to pay the wide board ...

Entertainment Center #1: Conception

11-24-2009 05:16 AM by Loogie | 5 comments »

My parents finally upgraded from their old Sony 27” CRT television to a nice Samsung LCD. That meant that their old conventional TV cabinet was out and they needed a new entertainment center. Naturally, they asked if I would build their new piece. They visited a bunch of stores to get design ideas and after a lot of discussion we settled on a low cabinet design. I was inspired by Troy Sextons American Cabinet. However, my mother preferred flat bracket feet to the ogee bracket feet that ...

House Built-in #4: Slow Progress

11-24-2009 04:53 AM by Jimi_C | 0 comments »

Haven’t had a lot of time to work on this the last two weeks unfortunately, but I did make some progress today. I’ve attached the shelf standards (not shown below) in both cabinets, and cut the backs. I won’t attach the backs until the drawers are done, since I’d like to make access to anything I need to put on the interior as easy as possible. Today, I finished priming the first center panel, which is made of MDF, and glued up the first door. The second door fra...

This site is becoming too ($@#!%&*) addictive. How can I get anything done in the shop. I’m glad I don’t have this computer out there too. Somebody help me ! When I am in the shop, I want to see what’s up here. When I am on line, i feel guilty for neglecting my Second Love. I’ll bet Big Brother has something to do with it. AAARRRGGGGG!!!KHOP

Dust Collector Filter Bags

11-24-2009 04:13 AM by ChunkyC | 3 comments »

I converted my dust collector some time ago and added the Wynn Filter to it. I never new what I should do with that old filter bag. I got a new bloodhound yesterday and she has found a new use for it! It must be comfy because she lays on it all of the time. Ockham’s Razor: Sometimes the simplest solution is the best solution. Now if I could just train her to sweep up at night… cc
