my next projects

10-20-2010 04:02 AM by JimmieCajun | 1 comment »

So, it has been some time now since my last posting to LJ. I enjoy the site very much and when my friend, Charlie was visiting our home this past weekend and mentioned his favorite site was now Lumberjocks, I decided, it is time to make a posting and get back in touch with the LJ community. So since my last posting several months ago, my wife and I have built an outdoor kitchen on our back deck, we have completed the rest of the 80+ feet of 10ft. wide porch across the back of our home in C...

Evolution of my router planer #2: Version 1.1

10-20-2010 02:46 AM by TZH | 8 comments »

The next design I came up with for my router planer was based loosely on some of the designs some fellow woodworkers had posted right here on Lumberjocks. The biggest design change was that I eliminated the sled pictured in the first photo in my last blog entry and used angle iron glides instead. Now here was a design I really took a liking to right away. This one allowed me to plane much larger pieces without fear of slipping off the edges of the runners because the router moves withi...

cello #1

10-19-2010 10:38 PM by techyman2 | 8 comments »

Every now and then you need to face a challenge. This is my latest. I had been working up to this for quite a few months. Luckily I have some project funds and what with my suppliers prices going up and VAT increases in the new year I felt it was the right time. A friend who plays asked if I could make him a cello but I felt that I could not commit his resources and expectations on the first one so I am making it for myself. Goodness knows why as I don’t play. However, he asked for a St...

Owning your own business (Post #6) why some people think you can't do it.

10-19-2010 10:10 PM by nate22 | 10 comments »

Good afternoon lumberjocks. Why is it some people are so negative about somethings. You are probably thinking what am I talking about. What I mean is that people will tell you that you can’t do it or it won’t happen. I have had this happen to me. Even some of my family used to tell me that with me owning my own business. Well I am usually a nice person until someone tells me that. I almost think that they are jelous because they can’t do it or they try to make you ups...

Dremel Multimax blade gripe

10-19-2010 09:06 PM by Don Butler | 12 comments »

I like and use my dremel tools a lot. I have several. The other day, though, I was disappointed and a little ticked off with Dremel. I needed to cut some holes in our ceiling for pendant lamps and after trying with other tools that raised a storm of plaster dust I decided that the multimax tool woul be less messy.So I bought one of their fourteen buck straight cutting blades for drywall and wood. While cutting the second hole I noticed a serious slow down in cutting and shut down to ...

Quest for a bigger TV #1: So we want to get a bigger TV

10-19-2010 06:02 PM by JBfromMN | 4 comments »

I thought I would share with you all my Fathers quest to get a larger TV. Now what does this have to do with woodworking you ask….. Well you see the Entertainment Center my parents had is a 3 piece set they purchased at Home Furniture several years ago. It is a nice system, the problem lies that is does not really have the room for the newer large flat screen TVs. My parents had a 32 inch CRT tv in there that JUST barely fits. My dad wanted to get a flat sceen TV but the larges...

Evolution of my router planer #1: First Version: 1.0

10-19-2010 06:02 PM by TZH | 9 comments »

One of the things I found out very early on in my type of woodworking is that the slabs I use in my projects are often in dire need of planing. The problem with this is the thickness planer I had was not large enough to accommodate the width of most of these slabs. So, I began reviewing my old book and magazine libraries and surfing the Net to try and find something else that might meet the need for the type of work I planned to do. The results of my search were mixed. The very first opti...

The great Lumberjocks shoe challenge #16: The end - tips on texturing and painting

10-19-2010 06:00 PM by Jordan | 16 comments »

Here we are – the final blog in the shoe challenge series. I know some of you are finished and some of you are nearing the end and some of you are half way through. That’s fine, there’s still lots of time. I wanted to give you some tips on finishing your shoe and because some of the details probably can’t be seen by camera until painted over, I’m going to draw some of my texture on my shoe just to shoe you what I mean. I will do this throughout today. If yo...

Ali's Workbench w/ Shop Made Wagon Vise #1: 3 1/2" Thick Workbench top w/ Shop Made Wagon Vise - Almost Done!

10-19-2010 05:59 PM by Alihorneff37 | 6 comments »

Here is a better pic of my workbench top and shop made end vise. The legs are almost done. I did some experimentation with a drawbore (name?) tenon that you can see on the back end. The empty space is where the half long tool tray will be. Honestly, I am undecided about the tool tray. Would it even be possible to just fill it in? Suggestions would be great! :) This is my first attempt at dovetails. And they are extremely hard! I am sure you can see the little spaces/discolorations but I r...

Milling 3" Black Walnut Slabs for fireplace mantels

10-19-2010 03:13 PM by Matt Pec | 3 comments »

I’ll be milling some 6’ long Black Walnut today for a customer who’s interested in fireplace mantels. Pics to follow. I’m thrilled…it’s been awhile since I’ve cut anything 3” or thicker. Okay, several hours later and I’m done with the milling. Pics are coming up shortly. I ended up with (2) 12/4 slabs 6’ long, 8-11” wide and (1) 5/4 board that was all I could salvage from the remainder of the log. Hope you like em! F...
