Intrigue, controversy & camaraderie from The Woodworking in America 2008 Conference This is the 4th and last part from our interview with Neil Lamens of Funitology Productions fame on his last day at The Woodworking in America Conference 2008. In this brief installment, Neil piques our interest with some intrigue at a Woodnet forum dinner during the conference. He also shares a fun story rooted in the controversy of tails first or pins first. Last but not least, Neil got a chance to...

The Non-Electric Chair #10: Waiting for Beech To Dry

1980 days ago by lethentymill | 2 comments »

Leaving the tool chest for a moment; we go back a few years to the Domesday Book and 1086 and an interesting fact – 13 saws were recorded in the kingdom, bowsaws were common at the time so what kind of saws were these? Probably not sawmills; mills are mentioned aplenty and millponds too but they were agricultural mills. These are probably pitsaws, a gruelling job for two men; one of them in the pit and the other steering the two-handed saw and balancing on the level tree-trunk as they r...

Woodworking Journal #2: Upcoming woodworking shows

1980 days ago by DonFaulk0517 | 3 comments »

I have plans on attending two woodworking shows in the Detriot Michigan area… Woodworks Events and The Woodworking Shows. I have all weekend passes so that I do not miss any of the free classes that are held throughout the day. I have been coming to THe Woodworking Show for 6 years and have found the classes and talking with the Suppliers and other woodworkers invaluable. I also plan on attending the “Make Your Own Bandsaw Box” at the Woodworks Events show. I’ll ...

Woodworking Journal #1: Michigan Woodworks --- My Woodworking Shop and Story

1980 days ago by DonFaulk0517 | 4 comments »

Welcome to my woodworking shop and story. This is my first blog and I hope to provide an ongoing status of my workshop and woodworking endeavors in this blog. This is “my story” of a hobby I enjoyed many years ago but became detached from due to my responsibilities at my full-time “real” job. I will update this whenever I can. For me, this is my retreat… my workshop is in my garage on my three arces in the woods with a 1/4 acre pond. Wildlife heaven, with dear, turkeys, and many other anim...

Need some advise on dovetails

1980 days ago by Gary | 7 comments »

I just got a dovetail jig today and am getting ready to set it up, that all seems to be very straight forward and does not look like a problem. My question is once i adjust the bit I assume that I should do these in one pass at full speed, just playing around in the past i have found that severl light passes work better for most things but see no way to do that here. I guess I just want to know for sure that I am heading the right direction here. Any help will be greatly appreciated, thank...

Ode To Small Shops #1: From Garage to Patio to Deck, My Small Shop Finally Has A Home

1980 days ago by slooper | 4 comments »

My first shop was what I could squeeze into a one car garage, leaving enough room for the car of course, and a workbench in my crowded basement. My second “shop”, if one could call it that, was a combination of a 3’x6’ closet off the patio of my 1st floor apartment, the 6’x10’ patio with picnic table, and the back of a utility trailer. If I caught you scratching your head, let me explain. My big tools; table saw, jointer and planer; were in a storage she...

Outside of Shop Complete (with a temporary change)

1981 days ago by FJPetruso | 9 comments »

Finally… An Update! I’m running out of warm weather so as you can see… I paid a bit extra to have the siding put on the front of the workshop, where the bricks will go, because I want to get the final inspection done as quickly as possible. I’ll put the brick veneer on this spring. There are new shutters & gutters & a light over the front window. On the rear of the shop, the landing by the doors has been poured, there’s a light over the doors & the outside recepticle is in...

1981 days ago by Texasgaloot | 6 comments »

You can take the title different ways, but I have a specific “way” in mind. Over the last couple of days, I have rubbed elbows with (in no particular order) Adam Cherubini, Chris “The Schwartz” Schwartz, Roy “St. Roy” Underhill, Frank Klausz, Brian Boggs, Mike Dunbar, Robin Lee, Thomas Lie-Nielsen, Joel Moskewitz, Mike Wenzloff, Clarence Blanchard, Glen Huey, Robert Lang, John Economaki… the list could go on. I’m not dropping names here. I wa...
