Alaska Jim's Comments of the Day #30: Today I am thankful to be a Lumberjock..............

11-25-2010 11:28 PM by Jim Bertelson | 36 comments »

’Tis Thanksgiving…....gotta be thankful. Just thinking about my activities today….....well….......a lot of lumberjock influence. It has been a very busy day. Got up at 0500hrs and didn’t stop working in the kitchen dining area until 1100hrs. I took off 30 minutes to drink my coffee and check my email. Right now it is a typical Anchorage Thanksgiving….....34 deg, and snow balls are falling from the sky, you know, warm enuf that the flakes clump together. ...

Puppet Theater #1: Designing the Puppet Theater

11-25-2010 09:24 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 1 comment »

The other night my wife’s best friend’s daughter stopped by to help out with the kids while we ran some errands and completed some chores. She showed them a new game. They spent the evening in the basement hiding behind a blanket draped over a couple chairs, putting on puppet shows with the numerous dolls and stuff animals scattered about the basement. They’ve been putting on puppet shows nearly every day since…which sparked an idea for a Christmas present/project: ...

I want to thank Martin and all the othersbehind the scenes who make this such a wonderful site, and also all you fellow Lumberjocks who fill it withso many worthwhile thoughts, projects and ideas.

11-25-2010 07:18 PM by Bob Simmons | 8 comments »

When a woodworker searches the web to learn how to make wood inlay bandings there is little information to be found. In fact there seems to be very little information about how the masters of wood inlay created the wonderful patterns that are sometimes seen on museum quality furniture. However, there are some patterns of wood inlay from the Buffard Freres that offer a glimpse into the world of classic wood inlay from Paris. After studying these inlay designs the urge hit me to figure out h...

11-25-2010 05:31 PM by ~Julie~ | 2 comments »

Please read part 1 and part 2 I need to make a cross piece for the back of the unit. This has to be something that I can easily take on and off the ladder parts and move to different locations for craft shows or displays. I’m using old barn board for the shelves and just lightly sanded them and trimmed all the boards to the same length. I decided to use another piece of barn board ripped down the middle with a bolt and nut holding the two halves together . That way it can be ...

Fun place to shop for tools

11-25-2010 05:21 PM by woodklutz | 0 comments » are not talking about Festool.I stumbled onto this site and thought what the heck. I ordered the drum sanding kit less than $5.00 but the same as what you see for $25.00. I know you question it so did I until I put them side by side. Also the all in one drill bits, drill countersink, I think $5. set screws stink but you replace them for a few cents 5/20 mm size.The little trim router $7.00 I kid you not, certainly not prograde, ...
