I converted my dust collector some time ago and added the Wynn Filter to it. I never new what I should do with that old filter bag. I got a new bloodhound yesterday and she has found a new use for it! It must be comfy because she lays on it all of the time. Ockham’s Razor: Sometimes the simplest solution is the best solution. Now if I could just train her to sweep up at night… cc
I just can’t review stuff. I have NO point of reference. Pretty much everything I have is my first [insert tool type here]. It wouldn’t be fair. BUT … after: - MUCH messing with my Grizzly G0555X 14” bandsaw, - figuring out that the entire blade tensioning mechanism was faulty (new parts on the way) - finding out all I could about tuning a bandsaw, and thinking I had it set up pretty darned well I finally stopped by the woodworking store and picked up...
The Workbench THREE The third video in a series of nine. ............................ Mortise and tenon joinery synonymous with fine woodworking, mystical like dovetailed joints. Working with wood is therapeutic in a way, putting you in touch with your senses and connecting your head to the wood. T he woodworker’s never ending quest for perfection.

I began my woodworking journey a little over two years ago now. My wife and I had just bought our first house together, she had quit her job and became a full time law student and I was looking for something to do that was a little more engaging than television. My previous hobby had been tinkering with cars which I still enjoy, when I can, to this day. But our new home had no garage and we had little money to spare. So I searched my soul and the internet and decided that I would teach my...
A classic Chuang Tzu tale that explains how human beings actually do what we do, and live how we live, irrespective of modern rationalism’s claim to have captured all human knowledge in theory: Duke Huan was in his hall reading a book. The wheelwright P’ien, who was in the yard below chiseling a wheel, laid down his mallet and chisel, stepped up into the hall, and said to Duke Huan, “This book Your Grace is reading—may I venture to ask whose words are in it?” “The words o...
I am currently visiting the Seattle area for the next few days. I am staying in Maple Valley to be specific. I have some business contacts to make and they are my priority. We will have to make this up as we go along since it is a bit of a spontaneous announcement, but I would like to try and meet some LJ members if possible.
A friend of mine has a little boy who was turning 3 over the weekend. I got it in my head to make something fun for him for his birthday. Mainly because with the holidays here I didn’t really have the cash to buy him anything and a homemade present is always more fun. I subscribe to The scrollsaw workshop blog by Steve Good and he had a fun little pattern for a truck and a car made from construction lumber, so I figured I’d try it out. It took about a week for me to make in ...

NORTH POLE – Due to the increasing population of the world and the “Cash for Toys Program”, it has been reported that Santa Claus (AKA Kris Kringle) cannot keep up with the many furniture wishes he has received this year.
