A journey into the workshop. #39: Lumberjocks Workshop page updated.

01-15-2010 10:33 PM by dbhost | 2 comments »

For those shop voyeurs that like seeing updates on the shop entries, mine has been updated to reflect the current configuration (I still need better pics…). The shop isn’t where I want it yet, but it IS functional, and coming along nicely. I fear this will be a perpetual project…

A blog about a blog

01-15-2010 08:56 PM by kennethw | 2 comments »

Hi folks. I’ve taken the plunge and started my own blog. It’s mostly about my process of learning, working with hand tools and coming up with creative solutions to get around not having a shop! I’ll definitely still be hanging out with you LumberJocks as much as possible, I just have my own sandbox to play in as well. Please check it out some time if you get a chance and have an interest. :) Thanks!

Toy Chest #1: From This to a Toy Chest

01-15-2010 08:16 PM by End_Grain | 0 comments »

My oldest daughter is pregnant with our first grand baby, a boy. The wife is excited-just a bit. So I’ve been sidetracked from the kitchen upgrade and drum sander and am now working on a toy chest. This is the wood I have to work with-reclaimed pallet pine. This is what it looks like after I get done cleaning it up. It mills down to just under a 1X3. A bit more gluing up for the panel, I think 2 extra boards per side. It cleans up real nice. All of the knots are tight. Th...

The never ending debate...Shopsmith (will I never let this go???)

01-15-2010 06:54 PM by Shopsmithtom | 22 comments »

I stumbled across a place on the web where someone was asking about the merits of the Shopsmith vs getting separate tools & realized that it’s been a while since I blogged about that here on Lumberjocks, and while that in itself would not have prompted me to open this tool box again, when coupled with the event I’ll describe here, it was just enough to throw me over the edge & down that particular slippery slope. I’m just finally finishing up my son’s Christ...

Why buy the Incra table saw fence system now?

01-15-2010 06:52 PM by richgreer | 10 comments »

For years I have looked at Incra’s table saw fence system. It has always been on my want to have list, but never on my need to have list and I could not justify the price. As I see it, the purpose of the Incra system is the ability to set the fence with very good accuracy and repeatability. Now there is Wixey’s new WR700 digital fence measuring tool. I have never seen one (other than pictures) but based on my reading, this tool lets you set your fence with great accuracy ...

Glue up problems...Any ideas?

01-15-2010 06:35 PM by Jimthecarver | 25 comments »

Along the time of my attempts to create cutting boards I discovered Tite Bond III glue. The longer work time and tan color after dried made it seem a better choice than the yellow elmers glue. That is a cutting board made almost two years ago, and this one being the most recent My question is “How long do we wait for glue to completely dry before finishing?” The second board glue up was allowed to dry for a...

A journey into the workshop. #38: Not ready to review it yet... But the Wolverine Sharpening jig is in...

01-15-2010 05:55 PM by dbhost | 6 comments »

Well, it arrived Tuesday, but I have been busy enough that I didn’t even bother taking it out of the box and setting it up until last night… The Wolverine Sharpening Jig looks plenty well made coming out of the box, mostly good welds (the weld holding the through bolt for the platform is pretty messy, but solid), acceptable, but not all that impressive of a finish on the V arm and platform. After seeing this set up, I am not sure it is that much more impressive than the grin...

Shoe Rack #1: Building the carcass

01-15-2010 05:33 PM by David Craig | 5 comments »

The following is an example of a project that I usually will find myself working on. It also highlights one of the reasons why I don’t post projects, as these are usually rough constructions that I attempt to make a little better than the material I am working with. Right now, my house is in a state of semi-chaos. My brother has moved in a few months ago (he has been recently diagnosed with MS and is trying to get his life together) and so I have been trying to adjust to the addition of...

Rescued Wood #8: I've got some work to do Tomorrow

01-15-2010 05:31 PM by PG_Zac | 4 comments »

Our local tree feller called unexpectedly yesterday to ask if I would like some Eucalyptus that was going to go to the dump, but they couldn’t bear to see such good wood go to waste. Obviously the answer was yes !!!!!! So they brought me a trailer load of old dry trunk sections, some of which have started rotting on the outer sections. There is still some good usable wood inside, so it is on my list to do. After I showed them the Yellowwood they brought me a couple of weeks ago,...
