Weekend Bench #6: Getting a little closer to being done

01-04-2009 02:21 AM by dsb1829 | 6 comments »

I had to take a couple of days off for Holiday travel. I got back at the bench yesterday for about 6 hours and batched out the dog holes and lower shelf. I am not overly thrilled with how the dog holes worked out. In the end I used an Irwin boring bit and this jig. I found that using just one clamp allowed the board to wiggle some as the bit drove in. Doing it this way the second and third clamps secure the board better. A backing board is necessary.or you will get blowout at the bott...

Mid-Atlantic LumberJocks Picknic/Get Together

01-04-2009 02:09 AM by Greg3G | 14 comments »

Calling all Mid Atlantic LumberJocks! I met up with Karson at the Baltimore Woodworking Show earlier today and I mentioned to him I would like to see a Mid-Atlantic LumberJocks Picnic or party this year. He thought it would be a great idea. I would like to get a feel of how many of LumberJocks in the Mid-Atlantic area would be interested in meeting this year. I am thinking late June as a time line. Between the time school let out and the July 4th holiday. We thought that the Baltimore/W...

Turning slippery slope #2: Looking more fun as I go - opinions requested

01-04-2009 02:05 AM by Betsy | 8 comments »

Have not turned anything yet—have my first class in a couple of weeks. But I’ve been spending a lot (really a lot) of time on the net watching free videos and looking at projects. I’m really getting excited about the possibilities. I’m very nervous about using the lathe – that’s why I want to take classes and such. I’ve done pens but nothing more (honestly didn’t do those all that well). Watching these videos have really led me to believe ...

Baltimore 2009 Woodworking show.

01-04-2009 12:59 AM by Karson | 23 comments »

I got back from the Baltimore Woodworking show held in Timonum MD. I’ve been at this show two other years. This one seemed to have more vendors and more customers than I can remember before. I went on Friday and got there around opening time and the place was mobbed. Usually Fridays are the retired folks and the one day of vacation folks. But it had a great crowd. I was only looking for disposable (sandpaper etc.) so I didn’t spend much time looking at the tools or the Shammy W...

My Rendition of T-Chisels Blanket Chest Chapter 3

01-04-2009 12:14 AM by FlWoodRat | 8 comments »

Some time off during the holidays afforded me the opportunity to hit the shop. Over the last couple of days I managed to cut all the dado’s, mortises and tenons. Today I loose fit the front frame and the two end frames. Since I cut the mortises with my drill press, I had to clean the sides up with a chisel. Well the only chisels I have around were very dull Sears Craftsman that have been used to do everything from cut mortises for door lock sets and scrape paint (wifey!). Needless ...

A really tough client this time!

01-03-2009 11:49 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 40 comments »

Well I think I met my match! My current wife, ( I”m considering trading her in), always says I never build anything for her, or as she would say US. (yeah right). A while back our projection screen television committed suicide. So we bought a flat screen model that hangs on the wall. Of course all the “stuff” that used to sit on top of the previous T.V. cabinet was demoted to sitting on the floor. Thus, the need for a cabinet to sit below the new unit, and house the...

well I’m sure that many off you have had problems with your table saw fence before. and i have been having a lot of problems with mine so i decided to head to Lowes and purchase a delta T-2 table saw fence. i had to go to 3 of them before i actually found it. and it is a big box. it is a pretty beefy fence. so first i started by removing my old table saw fence and my router table. just to make the installation a bit easier. then i attached the rails to the table saw. lucki...

Ponderings #28: An Open Letter About Safety

01-03-2009 02:52 PM by Tomcat1066 | 7 comments »

It was 365 days ago I posted my first blog here on LumberJocks. In that time, I took a prolonged hiatus in order to get my home finished so we could move in. However, in that 365 days, I learned a lot. Some of it has already been recounted. However, what I’d like to pass on to fellow woodworkers about safety equipment hasn’t, so why not do so here? To Whom It May Concern: You don’t know me from Adam’s house cat. I’m just a fellow woodworker who makes u...

Woodworking vacation #13: Starting to plan my next vacation.

01-03-2009 09:01 AM by Betsy | 5 comments »

Considering that my last two woodworking vacations have had more excitement than I anticipated – I begin the process of planning my next vacation with a little trepidation. Don’t tell my boss about this——he’s told me I can’t take another vacation because I always get in trouble! So – mums the word! I am thinking of doing another hand tool class or a rocking chair class. I’m starting to gather up some information and pricing hotels, etc. I&#...
