Today's shop victories

08-08-2008 05:45 AM by ryanhos | 1 comment »

My workshop and I were a bit at odds recently. She was mad because I was neglecting her. I hadn’t been out there much lately and I’d left some shavings on the floor. My wife is deployed abroad, so the shop saw no reason for me to not be out there making sawdust. I was upset because the Jet 6” jointer I found on closeout at Menards and had assembled on Monday was chattering, skipping, and leaving tooling marks on the pieces. But, like any good relationship, neither party...

Oakite (sp)

08-08-2008 04:16 AM by Joero | 3 comments »

Does anyone remember a product from years ago called (I believe) OAKITE.If memory serves it was a powder that, when mixed with water became a caustic stripper for refinishing wood.I’d like to find it if it’s still out there. I may be mistaken and it was used for stripping paint from metal…. The ol’ gray cell’s ain’t what they used to be.Any input would be great.Thanks Joero

Poll for 8/7/08 I know we are waiting for 8/08/08 but, that's tomorrow.

08-08-2008 01:21 AM by Karson | 15 comments »

Some one suggest that we have a polll on if you were stranded in a desert what tool would you like to have. Now I think thats foolish. Theres no wood there so I’d want the lightest tool that I could carry. So the poll is if you were on a beach with ample supply of driftwood of various shapes floating by or stuck in the sand, What tool would you like to have. I’m assuming that you have a long extension cord available available for your use (With power flowing out the end) ...

The polls are closed... can't wait for the results!

08-07-2008 11:36 PM by itsme_timd | 9 comments »

Well, the polls for the Summer Contests are officially closed now. Results are coming by tomorrow morning, I’m excited to see how it turns out. Some of the projects on here are unreal. They go well beyond a “woodworking project” to a true work of art, I could easily see some of these pieces landing in a museum. Always makes me want to improve my skills and learn new things. Good luck to all that entered and thanks Martin for another great contest!

Mess ups

08-07-2008 08:53 PM by Davesfunwoodworking | 21 comments »

I would like to see mess ups. You know we always see the finished projects. But I have been working on a curved top to the hope chest that I am making and have had a few mess ups. It got me thinking about lumberjocks. I came in to see if I could find any thing on here that would help me not mess up. I could not find anything on here about what to do or what not to do. How about a mess up and how to fix tab? You know we all wanted a tab on the contests. I would like to see a tab on messing up ...

Shop Safety #1: Regarding Karson's Kickback Survey

08-07-2008 04:04 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 50 comments »

Hi All; I thought I would pass on HOW my kickback occurred, so everyone might keep this is mind when working in their shop, or anywhere someone might surprise you. First off, I do use a splitter for all through cuts, ALWAYS. (Obviously, cutting dodo’s and other cuts require it be removed) I had just started to rip a piece of wood, the board was almost to the splitter, but not quite. That’s when my wife busted in and startled me. I turned to see what happed behind me and m...
