Woodworking vacation #18: Day three - dovetails with Frank Klauz

10-01-2009 02:53 AM by Betsy | 5 comments »

It only keeps getting better and better. Today was a very interesting day – not just for the woodworking but for the conversation and friendly interaction. Kelly always has a “reception” on Wednesday evening – just sit around a talk with one another with some wine or beer and some great finger food to share. Tonight was extra special as we had a well known woodworker drop in for some chat. Don Weber dropped by and it was fascinating listening to him talk about his work...

A journey into the workshop. #13: Got the tool stacking system in place.

10-01-2009 02:01 AM by dbhost | 5 comments »

Simply put, I took sheathing grade ply, cut it into 18×24” panels, drilled holes and counterbores for mounting hardware for my bench top tools, and mounted that all up on Rubbermaid adjustable closet shelf hardware… The panels are sized so that I can simply clamp them down to my workbench and get to work, which is awfully handy since that is where the dust collector is plumbed near… Now to dismount the old mounting boards from the tool stands, and get ready to t...

Gettin' fixina tune up my Unisaw #14: Checking blade runout

09-30-2009 10:43 PM by Bothus | 3 comments »

Hi All, Since I will have to work late tonight and tomorrow night, I went over on my lunch hour and double checked the runout after cleaning the arbor. Then I checked it with a blade mounted too! Oh, the exciting news is that I ordered a helmet cam from amazon.idiots (I’m only kidding, I love them now). Rechecking the arbor runout after cleaning. Checking the blade runout. Enjoy! ;;J

From plan

09-30-2009 09:09 PM by JohninSD | 6 comments »

I stumbled onto Lumberjocks while looking for inspiration to build a Tablesaw Workstation, something I’ve been meaning to do for 15 years or so. I have a Powermatic 64 Artisan saw and it has been on the original metal stand since I bought it. I added a router table to the right extension wing and put casters under it to supposedly make it easy to move around the shop (garage) but the weight of the router table made it seriously off balance and moving it often was a struggle. So I set o...

We have the pavilion at Hawk Island County Park just off US127 in Lansing. We will eat, show each other what we brought to show if anything, gab, then head out to Ravenwood Farm. I spoke to the owner Kelvin today and he is more than happy to accomadate as many as comes out. The park is reserved for us, I would ask that we pass the hat since it was $50.00 ransom. Rick and I will arrange food and drink if anyone has a preference please let us know. You may want to bundle up as it will probably ...

Milling #1: It begins....

09-30-2009 02:16 PM by Broda | 3 comments »

I think I mentioned in my last blog that I love hearing/reading/seeing about wood gloats and also logs to lumber blogs. I haven’t done much in the way of blogs but, better late than never. A few weeks ago, me and dad went wood cutting. I usually come along to look out for fallen trees to take home and stick on the lathe. Lucky I went this particular time.there was a tall skinny, and by that I mean about 20m tall by about 250mm diameter, unidentified tree laying over a track. someone ...

Fly Fishing Rods #2: Cutting out the birch bark

09-30-2009 08:08 AM by Matt Vredenburg | 4 comments »

While waiting for some of the materials I have ordered for my fly rods, I have started to prepare the birch bark for glue ups. I also found some very cool looking cork which I have included. I am planning to weave in the cork into the rod handle. Here’s some pictures for this process.

I had another allergic reaction

09-30-2009 06:49 AM by Blake | 30 comments »

I haven’t been spending too much time in the shop ever since i finished the Jellyfish Table. I actually moved about 10 miles away from my shop so it is not as easy to “casually” do woodworking after work, after dinner, here and there on weekends, etc. My shop is on family property, so its not going anywhere. It takes me about 25 minutes to get there from where we are staying now. So I mostly go on a weekend day here and there. I have been up to the shop a few times to ...

Sliding Table attachment

09-30-2009 05:33 AM by childress | 14 comments »

Looking at this, you can see I have a little too much time on my hands. But I guess good things can come from having no work… You get to make jigs and the like! This “side project” started after I received about 8 tabletops (it was 15 halfs) from a local stain mfg that recently went out of business. The tops were all damaged in shipment here to the states, they got them to test their products on. Well, now they don’t need them and I scored! I ripped, planed a...
