I got a flyer stating Sears Trostel is having a sale on hardwoods. I saw their pricing this morning and Red Oak, Cherry and Hard Maple. 3/4, 4/4, and 5/4. Up to 20% off. I am picking up some cherry for a new tv/entertainment center. Sale is Nov 6/7. Here in Fort Collins on Riverside. I will be there tomorrow morning at 7:30 when they open. Brian
Another master piece from the Creator!22×8 x 2!
Well, two years ago my brother-in-law had decided Christmas was too commercial, so he insisted that we all make each others’ gifts the following year. We all had a good laugh and forgot about it. Come last November, the topic resurfaced in the form of a “reminder.” Apparently, they had been working on our gifts all last year. So while we received a very nicely oak-framed stone mosaic mirror, we returned a repurposed pillow that my wife had embroidered for someone else. ...
These are the final pics of the craft table I made for my wife. The First one shows how she is using it and the decorative carrying handle. The second is a pic of the leg levelers I bought from Rockler. I learned that you should test fit the leg leveler assembly before you fix them permanently. As you may have some that are stripped out. Luckily I took the one that was stripped back to Johnson’s Workbench and they replaced it free of charge. It was a nice project to build. I woul...
I’VE BEEN RESAWING FOR SOME TIME NOW WITHIN THE LIMITS OF MY SAW. I HAVE A JET 14” BANDSAW. I WAS ORIGINALLY LIMITED TO ITS STANDARD HEIGHT MEANING I COULD ONLY RESAW A BOARD WHICH WAS AT MAX SIX INCHES HIGH. THIS WAS VERY TIME CONSUMING WHEN TRYING TO GET A BOARD SAY 15” WIDE BUT 1/2” THICK. MOST OF THE STOCK I USE IS AT LEAST 1” THICK. I WAS TIRED OF WASTING THE OTHER 1/2” OF WOOD BY PLANING IT OFF TO GET THE THICKNESS I WANTED. I COULD RESAW IT THINN...

Ruminations, Philosophy, and Workshop Antics.......... #4: A little progress on the table saw switch
Work has been interfering with my life again….rats. Got enuf time in the shop today to finish the bearings on the switch. They provide the sliding surface for the dowel that flips the switch. The bearings, and stops now eliminate unwanted rotation, over depression, or over extension of the switch. Meaning, it you can’t push it in too far, pull it out too far or somehow turn it…....all to avoid stressing the toggle switch. So just a little bit of plywood, the actual face t...
My wife’s grandson is somehow about to turn two. Time to turn him on to tools, huh? That’s the primary reason I’ve been taking a whack at dovetail joints. The tool box is in dry fit, right now. In the next day or two, I’ll move to glue-up. The cuts in the ends of the handle are for wedge/shims to hold the handle in place. The pics: ....Current plan is to fill it with something like this….. I did something wrong with the plywood bottom. The ...
Ok so this is a quick glance at how my (and sometimes my wife’s mind works)... We were looking at the clearance halloween merchandise and I bought a countdown timer to use next year. When we got home we were talking about the timer and if there might be other uses for it. We are taking a vacation in the upcoming months and thought it would be cool if we could count down for it to help get our daughter excited. Decided to make a new timer using the halloween one. But kept talking ...
Some of you have asked if I would give a discount to the Lumber Jocks community. The answer is Yes. I have been adding new products but I don’ t have much on yet. Also I will be adding an artist corner there so you guys can sell your produces for free. I will let you know when I get that module up.
