They Honey-Do List #1: A sewing table

1997 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

1997 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

1997 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

1997 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

1997 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!

1997 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...

miter station stop (ideas)

1997 days ago by goggy | 3 comments »

The bench upon which my miter saw sits is on its last legs, hence the overdue need to build a miter station. My design elements will incorporate ideas found in this forum with one exeception; the stop. Can fellow LJ’rs provide pics on how your stops were made. Only one entry showed a close up of a stop. Thanks!

does anyone else have my problem?

1997 days ago by woodsmith | 8 comments »

I am always looking at an interesting project or blog and after thinking about it for a few days or weeks I want to look back at it and can’t find it. I wish there was some way to find what I am looking for or maybe there is and I haven’t found it.woodsmith

Hand Tool Journey #1: Lately I've really been getting into hand tools.

1997 days ago by Blake | 7 comments »

Lately I’ve really been getting into hand tools. I asked for a few Japanese chisels for Christmas (one each from a few different people in the family.) I ended up with a set of four from Woodcraft. I decided that this collection was worthy of family heirloom status so I had them laser engraved and built a box to keep them in. I have always had a fascination with Japanese culture, art and woodworking. Lately I have been reading Japanese Woodworking Tools, Their Tradition, Spir...

What else do I need?

1997 days ago by rockman | 15 comments »

Hey fellers and ladies. I do mostly straight cuts. Nothing fancy like you guys. All my power tools are dewalt. My family found out that I was doin’ this stuff and they went nuts. I have a 12” miter saw. A jig saw. Circular saw. Got my drills. Everything was given in exchange for what I make. I got a little “coin” from the sales of the stuff I make and desire to be a real woodworker like you guys. Is there a project that you guys can recommend to give me a “taste...
