Hello Lumberjocks, The actual title is “The Footprints of My Words”. My friend is having a party tonight. I have decided to leave the secret undground bunker in Martelle and attend. As you may or may not know, I post my blog to 3 spots every day. Here, at blogspot, and my new domain extremelyaverage.com. It is a lot of work to update them each day, and eventually I want to just have the one, but I fear that my Lumberjock friend and their cats may not like the new loc...
If I’d known this was going to be a recurring theme I would have started a series…
For all you table building lovers and woodworkers in general….we recently posted a video up on Youtube on how to build a Table Mission style…You can check it out here and we would love to hear feedback on what you think! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLAe7Ndgybw
Yesterday I got this great tool for free. My neighbor has this Starrett No. 490. I was looking at it and asked if he was interested in selling it. He is not a woodworker and said he rarely ever uses it. I have another Starrett square but it doesn’t have the angle adjustment on it. He gave it to me.
If you have looked at or read anything about my projects, I’m a Tung Oil guy. Except when the wife/boss wants something else. Not a big fan of the finishing part of woodworking. So anyway, the boss wanted me to make a drafting table for her to do takeoffs at work. It needed to be 1.5” x 53” x 37” and adjustable. No problem. Went to Rockler and picked up the hardware. Home Depot for the 3/4” MDF. Get home and 3 hours later we are ready to finish. I st...

I am starting a simple blog on how I made my candies for the box called “Eye Candy” This will work as a blanket answer to all the questions I have recieved on this. Its pretty obvious that they are no more than glued up woods of contrasting colors, but this will give insight on how I did it.I am working on pictures at this point and some will be posted in the next chapter, hopefully tonight. So follow along if you are interested.Also, I want to thank everyone again for voting and ...
I would very surprized if I am the only one that has done this. About 2 years ago I built a cradle out of walnut. When I joined the boards together I did not make note of where the biscuits were. Yes, you guessed it. When I cut the design out I cut right through a biscuit where it will show up like a sore thumb, white biscuit on dark walnut. What to do, so I made a small strip of walnut and glued it over the bad place, one on both sides so they both look the same. Later my wife, and others, s...
We recently purchased a new washer, & dryer, & we didn’t want to spend $400 for the factory pedestals, so I’m making my own. They should cost us about $75 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~This is the factory made pedestal~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The front load machines are kind of low without a pedestal. It makes it kind of tough on the back muscles.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~...
Got to spend quite a bit of time the shop this weekend and made a bit a progress on both of the pending projects. The Woodworkers Fighting Cancer Table Build Over the weekend I managed to get the aprons for the table cut, and the tennons made. Following the advise of The Wood Whisperer I custome fit each tennon to its respective mortise. Did a dry assembly, and finally got the carcass of the table glued up (in two stages). I will have to do a little “evening” w...
