A House Warming Gift #3: Cutting out Letters

1967 days ago by littlecope | 0 comments »

Finally got some free time today! Started out by deciding it was a great day to clean up around the Scroll Saw! And not only for the Camera! I’ve been looking at how small the dot is over the i and the apostrophe on this tiny sign I’m making and realized that when they fall out, I’ll never find them unless I police the area a ...

Triton Router Dust Collection ARRRGGGGGG

1967 days ago by spaids | 8 comments »

I have a triton 2 1/4 horse plunge router. Its a good router I like it but how do you use the built in dust port? It claims to be 1.5” o.d. I bought a 1.5” o.d. hose and it doesn’t fit. Its was about and 1/8” to big. Who has a hose that fits in their triton router and where did you get it? ThanksSpaids

WorkBench #1: Rites of passage

1967 days ago by grimt | 6 comments »

Somebody told me a bench should be a woodworkers first project. Something to do with rites of passage. So here I am with 800NZD (or South Pacific Pesos) worth of European Beech in my garage and a design on sketchup. When the wood was delivered, most of it was too heavy for a weedy little guy like me to carry.. Those babies are 3.1m long! Hare is another picture after I eventually dragged it in the garage. You can see my current “workbench” in the background and ...

Wood IDs #10: Found limb - Bottlebrush

1967 days ago by Gary Fixler | 10 comments »

This branch, found a week ago now, was a mystery for awhile, but then I accidentally identified it while looking up something about paperbark trees, which are in some ways related. Callistemon, or Bottlebrush Trees, in the Myrtaceae family, are – like many LA trees – native to Australia. My coworker and officemate, who knows about my log and tree-collecting shenanigans told me one morning that the city had roped off a big branch that had fallen. He saw it on his drive in to work. ...

Router Table #1: Getting this project off to a late start on Lumberjocks

1967 days ago by Jamie | 6 comments »

Well, It’s been a long time since I have posted anything on here, and I figured that since I have already started a new project that isn’t complete yet, this would be the perfect time. For the past couple of years, I have been wanting to build a router table ala Norm. Well, my birthday was last friday (March 27) and my wife was asking me what I wanted. Well, long story short, I started out with a couple sheets of 3/4” oak plywood, and a sheet of MDF. This past weekend...

The Scary Sharp Method

1967 days ago by CXD | 7 comments »

I know its been beaten like a dead horse, but the scary sharp method sure is quick, easy, and cheap, especially for a beginner. I got my first set of chisels today and, or course, they need to be sharpened. No fancy chisels here. The $30 set of 4 Irwin bench chisels. I set up my sandpaper 150, 320, 400, 600, 1000, and 1500 grit. The 400 through 1500 is wet/dry. I started flattening the back of the first chisel and was pretty skeptical. By the time I got done with the 1500 it was like...

Rss feed your projects? It's really easy.

1967 days ago by Frankie Talarico Jr. | 0 comments »

I did a write-up this morning about rss feeds if anyones interested. This might be a very useful tool for you guys. Rss feeds work basically on subscribers. Once you have a following ( be 1 or be 100) they check your feed regularly. So you add new projects, say weekly, and this info gets broadcasted ,basically, to your subscribers. It’s a great avenue to get exposure on items possibly for sale. There are entire sites based off feeds, showcasing products of all sorts. If it’s of an...

Bandings #1: Diamond bandings

1967 days ago by TheCaver | 11 comments »

I posted this in the forum but some ppl don’t go in there…..If you do, sorry for the repetition….. Ok, so I gathered some ideas on how to make diamond banding (example below) Note grain directions: I made a lot of drawings and cut paper shapes to help me visualize the cut process, one of them being TT’s idea in the previous thread. This method although it produced the diamond pattern, it was well over 75% waste and grain direction was wrong compared to the com...

Gout

1967 days ago by ND2ELK | 34 comments »

Hi Fellow Lumberjocks I have been laid up now for two weeks with gout in the left foot. Never had it in my life. I would not wish this on anybody. Well maybe one or two. I have had pain in my life before but never for so long of a period. My wife kids me, that a real man would drag it behind him, NOT! Everytime I lift up my foot or straighten it out when I sit down after standing or walking it takes my breath away. Been seeing the doctor for the past two week and go back tomorrow. My wife ...

I made it so far

1967 days ago by jockmike2 | 32 comments »

Just a note of Thanks for all the prayers and well wishers (I read Karsons blog) my goodness it was great to get such support. This is really the first day I’ve felt like sitting up and typing anything. I have sneaked a peek or two with my wife’s lap top but dang I hate those things. Anyway I can’t say I’m cancer free, I won’t know that until I go back to my Dr. on Mon. the 6th. But he told my family he was confident he got it all, and the Lymph nodes looked good...
