Workshop Ramblings #5: Life Happens and Emotions Get In the Way

05-31-2009 04:10 AM by brianinpa | 11 comments »

May has been a busy, busy month and no time was spent in the shop. Two days ago our youngest son graduated from high school. His graduation was the culmination of a senior year that included numerous band and choral events and concerts including local, county, district, regional, and State festivals. A graduation is a humbling event to watch as your youngest son walks across the stage and accepts his diploma. A lot of anxiety and awe were present during this event, but most of this was co...

Wood IDs #14: Figured out what kind of Eucalyptus it was that I found

05-31-2009 04:08 AM by Gary Fixler | 6 comments »

It’s a #2 phillips, based on the seed pods. In other news, I stuck all the old sets of the tree find and subsequent handlings (ongoing) into a collection here. I also went through and rotated some that were on their sides, added descriptions to some missing them, and finally made everything public, as I’d forgotten to on several, like these: That’s from May 4th, and shows significant shrinkage of the euc cup. It had been turned and sanded flush with the lat...

Another day, another nickle #17: Greetings from the land of the big sky

05-31-2009 01:52 AM by Thos. Angle | 17 comments »

Hello everybody,I got home last night to find that I again had the internet. I have checked up on a few of you to see what you’ve been up to and I find it pretty impressive. I, on the other hand, ride around all day and watch cows make Guacamole. Ever wonder why cowboys don’t eat Guacamole? Think about it. We have had our first guests at the lodge. It’s sure been good to eat Carleen’s great cooking. I think maybe she’s over trying to impress me but she sure has...

Well, the workshop is coming togather. Slooooowly, but I’ve gotten a bit more done today.

Yeah, it’s still a mess… Tablesaw And finally, can’t you see what a great Workbench I have??? More later… Milo

Hello again… Due to backing up septic tanks and clogged pipes I was not able to get into the shop until Saturday. I accomplished everything on my list for the week and will continue Sunday with more sanding of the seat, leg shaping and then glue the legs and seat together by mid-week next week. For now, on to today’s progress: Started out with a 1 1/2 hour sanding marathon. 45 minutes per arm:Here is a picture of the 1st arm sanded next to the arm that has not been tou...

random #19: Most elaborate dollhouse ever: Moscow?

05-30-2009 12:20 PM by Gary Fixler | 10 comments »

I continue to be amazed by how many amazing things there are out there by which to be amazed. I find new ones every day online, and have for the last decade. One I found this week is a 1/500th scale miniature of all of Moscow, built in 1988, and maintained ever since. It looks to be all balsa, or basswood. If the city changes, or a new house is built, they correct the model. It’s stayed current for the last 2 decades. Tons more pictures How hard could it be?

I made my latest post. This one. It’s #20,000. in a little over three years. So Keith not all of us show up and then disappear. I’ve had a lot of fun and I hope that I’ve help a few people along in their woodworking. I hope that I don’t make anyone mad about comments that I make. I’ve learn’t most of what I know from the school of hard splinters. That’s not to say that harder teachers didn’t help alos. They did. Sometimes I was responsive ...

Finally Getting Back To Work!

05-30-2009 03:29 AM by ND2ELK | 24 comments »

After being layed up for over 10 weeks I am finally getting back to work! I have worked in Lowe’s tool department for over a year and planning on going back again part time. My wife wants 120 feet of picket fence and two arbors built for the garden. Before I got layed up I was building an entertainment center which needs to be finished. I want to build my shop cabinets and buy the rest of my equipment and finish setting up the shop. These things should keep me busy for the next couple o...
