In continuing to learn more about using web sites I decided to develop one of my own. A simple one that I could add other items which I wouldn’t add to the Lumberjock’s site. The site is MichiganWoodshop. If you would like, go a head and visit it and let me know thru this site what you thought and if you have any improvment ideas. Enjoy!
This will definitely be a work in progress and will take a while so bear with me. This is all very alien to me. In this blog? I will endeavour to show some jigs I have built to cut and sand perfect circles. Tool of Choice Is the Bandsaw. While circles can be cut with a router and trammel I find the bandsaw is far quicker. the Jig Is basically an extention table with a sliding dovetail dohicky for adjusting the different radii for larger or smaller circles. I will be making some La...
A couple of months ago, I started obsessing about workbenches. I downloaded every workbench article I could find at Popular Woodworking . I scoured every back issue of every magazine I have. I borrowed a copy of Workbenches: From Design And Theory To Construction And Use by Christopher Schwarz from the public library, then bought a copy of my own once I realized I’d found the Holy Grail. I’ll save most of my gushing for a proper review (that’s another post) and try to st...
So after much research and debates, I have finally charged the card, and 2 days later the delivery arrived with the new saw in the box (I opted to have it delivered from the store as opposed to pick it up myself – at 450lbs, I simply wouldn’t be able to unload it myself) Delivery from HD was swift and smooth, positive and friendly guy stop at my place saturday morning, and helped me position the box in my garage – I couldn’t be happier (took 5 minutes, 4.5 of those was...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4rjwbKR2ybY Yo whats up everybody here is the second part of the shooting board video. In this video I go over how to glue up a shooting board and how to keep it that way.

To see all my videos you can visit my website at www.kostasworkshop.blogspot.com
So, I figure before I can start any Serious Woodworking Projects, I need a good workbench. Yes, I know it’s possible to be productive using a solid-core door on a pair of sawhorses, but I’m planning on turning the workbench into a Serious Woodworking Project of its own. I plan to use this opportunity to learn how to work with rough lumber (more on that later) and practice basic joinery (mortises and tenons, for instance) on something more forgiving than, say, a piece of furniture.
We come across these ideas, ideas which lead us to create things. Pieces of things that need adjusting, sanding, even fiddling with. Cutting this, notching that. Taking the time to attempt perfect fits and placement. These things typically start out as black and white. Maybe a drawing, or maybe they are not clear in the mind. When these things are clear in our minds they typically become clear, in color.Seeing it in color brings relief, the reality of its realism eases ones mind. These thin...
Hi All, Well another birthday has come and so far it hasn’t been bad. I got the Kreg Rocket pocket jig. Can’t wait to use it. I have been wanting to get the kreg pocket hole kit for a long time. I think that my woodworking skills are about to take a new turn. By the way I just turned 42 today. UUUUUUGHHH!! I am certainly starting to feel my age.
So here’s the finished version. I applied two coats of GF Seal-A-Cell along with two GF top coats and a coat of wax with a lot of rubbing. First some bad news/good news. If you read my previous blog entry “I am repelled” I went through the process of fixing the magnet mistake. Well here’s another little oversight. The temperature tags on the balloons in the Galileo are metal. That’s the bad news. The good news is they are outside the range of the magnets i...
