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...

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.
Hello all, I just joined this site but I have been coming on here for a few weeks and reading blogs. Love the fact that there are people out there with a lot of great advice and knowledge in wood working that have come together to discuss. Have learned a lot already. I am making kitchen cabinets for my house. They are coming along great with the small amount of time I have. I have found all the hardware I need except for cabinet latches. I am looking for antique style cabinet latches...
I am always concerned about a fire in my shop, as the shop is in the house. I really cannot afford the 500 dollars for a steel cabinet. I have an old refrigerator that has the compressor removed from it. I was considering using this to store my paint, stain and thinners. There is no electricity to this unit, so im not worried about a spark, but is there a danger of explosion? Everything that will be stored in this container will be properly sealed, and the temperature in the shop ranges ...
Since I can’t afford a bunch of quarter sawn white oak to finish the dining table right now, I thought I’d look for a project that requires less materials. Having just read “Longitude” by Dava Sobel, I’ve been fascinated by wooden clocks. Being a Mechanical Engineer, I also have an affinity for anything with gears. I found woodgears.ca few years ago and have been fascinated by the stuff he makes. I’ve also looked into building some kind of kinetic sculp...
Here is my high tech steambox setup. The cedar strips for the canoe are easily bent over the forms but the laminations for the stems at each end of the boat need to be steamed to be bent around the stem molds. I did a little test run last night to make sure my PVC pipe wouldn’t melt on me when I actually steam the wood. I scored the teapot at a thrift store for $6 and the PVC pipe was $6 at the local lumber store. I already had the burner and a few cans of butane in the garage. For ...
I’ve received several pm’s asking how our business is and what we do to promote ourselves so I thought I would begin a blog on our 2010 shows. Next week I will be exhibiting at the ACC Baltimore show ( http://public.craftcouncil.org/baltimore/ ). I have applied to this show for the past 2 years and we were accepted last year but had to decline the invite. So we are in new territory wiht this one. This will be the first show of 2010 . We’re doing 9 shows this year ...
