Experiences #3: My first woodworking experience

1975 days ago by TampaTom | 1 comment »

It’s been said that you never forget your first time. If that’s the case, then I’m really scratching my head as to why I got into woodworking as a hobby. Let’s hit the rewind button on the way back machine. The year, 1982. There I was, a skinny kid growing up in Bloomingdale, New Jersey. I was in seventh grade at Walter T. Bergen Middle School. The big time. You see, in sixth grade, things were just like they were in elementary school – you stayed in your classroom most of the day...

I got most of the pieces fit and glued in on the wood that was rightHere is a close up of itI also got some of the pieces cut and fit for the wrong oneI had made some template plugs awhile back, so I take a compass and scribe around it, use a jig saw to rough cut it and then sand to fitI leave the “rays and feathers” long so when I rout the arc and arrow shaft, hopefully they’ll be a perfect fit.When I made the templates (1 for the rays and 1 for the arc. I made some alignme...

They Honey-Do List #1: A sewing table

1976 days ago by NedB | 4 comments »

My family recentlly suffered a loss, my Mother in-law passed away after several years of gradual declinging health followed by one week of steep downturn. As a result I’m faced with the opportunity to do something for the LOML That I’ve wanted to make for awhile. We’ll be re-purposing her mother’s bedroom into a sewing and computer room. I’ve got two spare benchtops sitting in my shop, so I’m going to build a set of legs for one of them for a sewing table/c...

First mortise/tenon #1: Practice mortise and tenon joint

1976 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 6 comments »

Well, After making a small jig for my drill press and a small simple sled for my table saw I have produced my first mortise and tenon joint using a couple of pieces of scrap pine. I drilled the mortise and cut the tenon on my TS then cleaned up both with a chisel. Not too bad for a first try I think. It is snug. I need to get a new blad for my table saw. I think it bends a little bit. It is an inexpensive blade and thin. Anyone else think that this can cause issues? I think I’d get a st...

Game Cabinet #2: putting it together

1976 days ago by JohnVV | 1 comment »

My camera died, so no pictures for a while. Looks like my unconscious decided for me how to dress up the doors. I didn’t cut them out until I put the case together, since I wanted the dimensions just right. So of course I screwed up the math. the panels are too short, but I have some extra poplar, so instead of edge banded ply, they will be framed.

First LumberJocks Post

1976 days ago by Matt | 2 comments »

Well, this is it. My first post. Let’s see if I can keep this blog running a little longer than the other blogs I have tried. Which is about 6 weeks! First, a little about me. A software engineer from the greater St. Louis area. (Actually, go east about 10 miles). We call that the ‘Metro East’. East Side 4 Life! I moved into the current house about 20 months ago. It has a nice little 400 sq ft garage and a driveway that makes putting the cars in it a really sc...

Oh Red Cedar how I hate thee

1976 days ago by sw_iowa_sawyer | 15 comments »

I have enjoyed visiting Lmberjocks so much I thought I would try the blog feature. I own a small portable bandmill and cut logs for myself and from time to time for other folks. I had a guy that I carve with ask if I would cut up a couple cedar logs for him. Since he is a friend, I said yes in a moment of weakness. Why you ask do I say that, it is because I hate red cedar. I hate the smell, and I hate the mess they make when you cut them. Why people line a perfectly good cedar chest with them...

Grizzly Here I come!!! #3: Welcome to the service department!

1976 days ago by Kevin Wilson | 14 comments »

A fellow lumberjock, “Cabinetmaster”, posted on the previous entry of this blog that he was sure Grizzly and their service department would fix this jointer issue for me. He couldn’t have been more right!!! I called the service department this morning and spoke with Philip. I was prepped and ready for battle! Armed with good details, 30 or so photographs, and first name basis conversations with many of the sales associates I spoke to on Saturday. But Philip on asked o...
