RUSH BOXES FOR MY RELATIVES FROM ABROAD #1: The Reunion Due My Wife's Cousin Passing Away

07-07-2010 09:10 AM by BertFlores58 | 19 comments »

Just this morning (7 July), I was saddened by a death in my wife’s family circle. Doris passed away today due to Kidney complications. Three years ago, she had undergone kidney transplant and we thought she was cured. And because of this, there will be 4 families coming home from USA and one from London will be here. A FAMILY REUNION. I am thinking to give gifts (boxes) to each family that makes 7 boxes. IF ONLY I HAVE TIME… CAN I DO IT? Can I let others do it? No matter ...

Luthiery Fun #1: Getting Started

07-07-2010 08:32 AM by Chinitorama | 1 comment »

After years of dreaming about it I’ve started to build a guitar. As I’ve mentioned elsewhere on LJs I plan to do most of it in a spare condo bedroom. So far I’m still wrestling with the problem of humidity control as I can’t keep my workspace closed from the rest my home and I haven’t bought a dehumidifier yet. Any suggestions out there? For now, my intent is to focus on aspects of luthiery which aren’t as effected by moisture. As things progress I&#...

J-Line Table Saw

07-07-2010 06:06 AM by bblooz | 6 comments »

I am looking for some advice/experience regarding an old Broadhead-Garret J-Line Table Saw. I have a line on one and was thinking about replacing my old Craftsman Table saw with it. It has some kind of proprietary fencing system, so upgrading the fence down the line is most likely out. Anybody out there had any experience with these saws? The saw has two cast table top extensions, and has a 3 Hp single phase motor, so hookup shouldn’t be a problem for my home shop. Nearest I can figure ...

Building a Credenza #10: Custom Hardware

The Doors Last time I glued up the door fronts: I spent some time fitting the doors with a plane: And then I passed them through the drum sander to flatten them: This little marking jig came with the hinge drill bit I bought: Drilling the holes for the hinges: Aligning the hinges: The Skinny Door I’ve been going back and forth on whether or not to cover the space where the DVD player shelf is. I finally decided it needed a cover of some ki...

Just Part of the Biz

07-07-2010 05:07 AM by Troy | 9 comments »

I was never under any delusion that having my own woodworking business would be all fun, just making stuff from wood. All in all, it’s been about 50% of it at best so far. That’s another discussion though, esp. since I am still fully adjusting. So I finally had a significant machine failure. I was feeding a piece of maple through the planer and it slowed part way through, like it was turned off mid-feed, except that it wasn’t consistent. There was nothing unusual about th...

My Tools #6: Jet 16-32 drum sander

07-07-2010 03:09 AM by Gary Fixler | 19 comments »

Mom visited a couple of weeks back for 10 days. She tends to come out once per year in the summer to see me, her only son. She helped me replace some broken things in my continuing “everything’s breaking” period (broke a bit last week on the mill – pricey, too – my computer a week or two before that, and my TV shortly before that, sigh…). Then over dinner for her birthday somewhere nice we talked about woodworking, and my idea for making some things like cu...

Sheriff Joe

07-06-2010 05:45 PM by longgone | 44 comments »

This email was sent to me today and it is soooo true !!! SHERIFF JOE IS AT IT AGAIN! Oh, there’s MUCH more to know about Sheriff Joe! Maricopa County was spending approx. $18 million dollars a year on stray animals, like cats and dogs. Sheriff Joe offered to take the department over, and the County Supervisors said okay. The animal shelters are now all staffed and operated by prisoners. They feed and care for the strays. Every animal in his care is taken out and walked twice d...
