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 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...

Oh Yeah !!! FREE Starrett No. 490

03-15-2010 10:55 PM by longgone | 10 comments »

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...

biscuit joiner Goof!

03-15-2010 08:38 PM by HallTree | 3 comments »

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...

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.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~...

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).
