Bon Voyage to Me

04-09-2010 09:56 PM by CharlieM1958 | 47 comments »

I’m just letting you guys and gals know I’ll be sailing the eastern Caribbean on the Emerald Princess for the next 8 days, so don’t think I’ve dropped of the face of the earth when you don’t see any posts from me for a while. I’ll try to bring everyone some tropical driftwood as a souvenir. :-)

My Shop #1: Router Sled

04-09-2010 06:58 PM by Kent Shepherd | 3 comments »

Last summer I posted this project—-My Router Table Sled just hit me, I never really showed how the jig could be used. Here is a practical application.I was actually building another jig and needed to slot some small pieces for adjustments. I posted a similar jig last week. I needed another. This one is tweaked a bit. I planed down a scrap of Mahogany I had laying around. (Sorry—no Bubinga) The Mahogany matched my sled ——if you&...

LJ's meeting new friends

04-09-2010 01:10 PM by hunter71 | 5 comments »

I got a call from a fellow LJ a month back stating he would be heading through my area and would like to stop by and see me and my trucks and tractors in person. Now I have a new friend that we have shared more than a few typed words with. I am going to make it a point to look up fellow members and attempt to visit them as we travel around this world.

Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #6: Finding shop time in a busy schedule -or- Making slats & cutting pieces

04-09-2010 06:24 AM by sras | 11 comments »

The next step in this project is making the curved slats for the back of the stool. The process is the same as for the curved parts with a couple exceptions. First the pieces for each set of slats are cut from two blocks. These blocks were next to each other when cut from the large stock. Instead of marking with a saw cut as I did last time, I used a permanent marker. By angling one stripe across both blocks, I am able to keep the strips in order. The total number of stripes tells me w...

Extremely Average #97: Who is number 45?

04-09-2010 04:53 AM by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

Hello Lumberjocks, I doubt many of you would have guessed that number 45 is my mallet. But it is, and I explain why in tonight’s blog. I would describe today’s ramble as especially inane, but that sometimes happens with my writing. I am pleased with how it is coming along and now that it is glued together I can proceed with getting into the shape I want. Brian

Amazing Tools #10: There's more than one way to split a log...

04-09-2010 03:42 AM by Gary Fixler | 11 comments »

My recent battle with the cheap electric chainsaw, and subsequent redesign of my 36” crosscut saw’s handle have seen several people recommending I rive my huge logs with a simple wedge and sledgehammer system. I’d seen it done before, but had always thought the splits were messy – not an issue if I’m just making some turning blanks. I also feared that such shock-treatment of the logs would lead to microcracks and extra checking later. I’m probably just bein...
