I have just posted a new shortened video on my BowlSaw which I think explains it much better. Give it a look on bowlsaw.com. And those I sent out free to fellow Lumberjocks, I’d appreciate any feedback so I can improve my service to you. Thanks. Dick
Here we go Fellow woodworkers. About to depart in a minor but precision made piece. Super Sled for my Delta Table Saw. Took the time to draw it all up on Autocad. Got my prints ready. Hardware on order. About to get the last of the raw lumber required. Now holding my breath as I call home to see whats on my better half list for this weekend. Hehehehehe We just have to smile at all the honey do projects. We all have them. We all do them with pleasure most of the time lol. I hope by the end o...
This table took a lot of thought and really stretched my skills but now that I see the end I know I could do it again better and faster!Background: a customer came to me with the need for a huge extendable table he had some walnut lumber left over from the building of his house and wanted to know if I could take on the job!I said yes pending a design, he said “here’s the lumber and can you make it with a trestle base” After examining the size of the lumber and getting approximate ...
Awhile back Elaine had a review on some scandinavian kolrosing knives she bought. There seemed to be some confusion about what it was and where it came from. I know a little of the history about kolrosing and have done a little of it myself. For those of you not familiar with kolrosing, it isn’t really wood carving as such,but it definitely is a woodworking craft which can rise to the status of art when done by creative hands. Doing kolrosing consists of making incisions, or etchi...
hey jocks I am looking to make some buddies is there anyone interested in intarsia out there who wants to make friends?
Okay I am stripping an old cedar chest. I stripped it 2days ago. I got 90% of what I think is a polyurethane clear off. (I had a few quarter size spots that where left behind) So I have been sanding on this thing and it keeps gumming up my 80 grit sandpaper. I moved to the belt sander 80 grit same thing. I tried slowing the speed down on both the orbital and the belt sanders to the first setting which is A on mine. Didn’t build up as fast but still did. Not making a lot of progress...
So we have been in this house sence the 24th of april and today is June 5th. I can not say that I am done with my shop being as how I do not ever think that I will be done but at least today I can get in and do a project. Actually I have been able to knock off a couple of the wifeys honey do projects thus far. As many of you know it’s knock off a couple of her honey do’s then one of mine, then hers then mine. I have posted a series of pics on my work shop page and maybe someday...
Sheesh. Good thing I have a truck now. I saw a note on craigslist today (online classifieds) that a guy had put “10 to 15 more” eucalyptus logs out in the alleyway behind his house. LA is all blocks split in half by access alleys big enough to drive 2 cars through (barely). The Google directions were a little wonky (didn’t name one of the roads, had me lost for an hour), and so a 47mi. round trip turned into a 75mi. round trip, and there were an incredible number of cop d...

Well, it is finally time to get started on a major overhaul in a few areas of the shop. We have been in our house now for seven years, and I have done little to no upgrades in the shop. It is starting to get extremely messy out there, and I am getting tired of it. So, I have decided to go through and make some improvements. These improvements are basically aimed at more storage and a better work flow for the shop. I have spent several months thinking about what to do, and I have gone thr...
