My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #74: The Reality of a Crippled Economy Hits Home

08-16-2010 12:16 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Well, another weekend has passed and another Monday is here. It all goes by so quickly it seems. Especially with the silliness of last week. It seems that I spent most of Saturday catching up with the regular chores and yesterday just flew by. We went to our friends out by a lake and the weather was perfect and we had a nice afternoon. I got home by 9pm but was so tired I could barely keep my eyes open so I called it an early night. Today I got up early and am ready to start a product...

A Craig’s List Flag

08-16-2010 08:58 AM by TopamaxSurvivor | 21 comments »

I often scan the freebies on Craig’s List looking for wood. Saturday, Aug. 14, 2010, I spied an American Flag. I responded thinking it deserves to be flown or properly disposed of, not thrown in the garbage. It was only a couple miles from my house, so I drove over to pick it up after the response with an address. It had been her mother’s flag and was in pristine condition. It was either new or had been indoors. It had definitely been displayed; there was thread holding one of the bracke...

Meeting a Special Lumberjock

08-16-2010 06:16 AM by ND2ELK | 24 comments »

There are some lumberjocks that have been an inspiration to me. They have a God-given talent in the wood working field and have often been working in that craft for many years. I admire their willingness to share their knowledge with others. They seem to be down-to-earth and a true professional. I had the honor and privilege to meet one such person while on my trip to California. His name is Patron of Ojo Caliente, New Mexico. I enjoyed the opportunity to meet David in person and wanted...

Extremely Average #224: Not What I wanted to Write...

08-16-2010 05:15 AM by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

Hello All, After last night’s post, and then the subsequent drinking in Lisbon, I really wanted to tell the ‘rest of the story’, but alas I am suffering a bit today. So I decided it was best to get back to woodworking, which is what most people like best anyway. I have started my router table spline jig and am sending out a call for naming two more of my tools. There is a picture of the tools who need names, so if anyone would like to help, feel free to chime in. T...

Tools that came from my great grandfather.

08-16-2010 04:48 AM by GregP | 19 comments »

These are all tools that came from my great grandfather, I’m a fourth generation woodworker and when my great grandpa died a lot of his tools got spread out between my grandpa, my dad, my uncle and me. Some pieces also “disappeared” I’m awfully curious about some of the things I ended up with. A lot of the big things like the lathe are self-explanatory but I’m very curious about the history of these items, many of them are unmarked or minimally marked so it’...

A friend from my local woodworkers club just lost 2 fingers in an accident on his table saw. He has been airlifted to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN where they will try to reattach one, and maybe both, fingers. His name is Roger. Please keep him in your prayers.

First logging/milling project

08-16-2010 02:52 AM by RJS | 2 comments »

This Oak Tree has been a part of out family for years. We have numerous pictures and memories of this tree when it was alive. The tree was struck by lightning approx. two years ago. My Dad Decided to take all of the limbs off of the tree and possibly have it milled into lumber. Is there anyone out there that can give me advice on how to choose a saw mill? How much will it cost? and what are the best “cuts to get out of the tree. This tree has been around forever, it deserves to li...
