03-22-2009 05:02 PM by GaryK | 26 comments »

Hello everyone, I just wanted to let you all know that I have entered my box into the Fine Woodworking Contest. I was hoping that I could get your support by going to their site and leave a comment on it for me.(Positive I hope). You will need to register to be able to leave a comment. I am pretty sure that after the contest is over I can still edit my entry. If so I am going to put a link to Lumberjocksto get more woodworkers here. I haven’t yet because I don’t know how ...

Woodworking Journal #6: New Web Site

03-22-2009 02:44 PM by DonFaulk0517 | 4 comments »

In continuing to learn more about using web sites I decided to develop one of my own. A simple one that I could add other items which I wouldn’t add to the Lumberjock’s site. The site is MichiganWoodshop. If you would like, go a head and visit it and let me know thru this site what you thought and if you have any improvment ideas. Enjoy!

Circle cutting #1: Lazy Susan..the making of?

03-22-2009 12:51 PM by degoose | 3 comments »

This will definitely be a work in progress and will take a while so bear with me. This is all very alien to me. In this blog? I will endeavour to show some jigs I have built to cut and sand perfect circles. Tool of Choice Is the Bandsaw. While circles can be cut with a router and trammel I find the bandsaw is far quicker. the Jig Is basically an extention table with a sliding dovetail dohicky for adjusting the different radii for larger or smaller circles. I will be making some La...

The Workbench #2: The Plan

03-22-2009 06:46 AM by Craig S. Cottingham | 1 comment »

A couple of months ago, I started obsessing about workbenches. I downloaded every workbench article I could find at Popular Woodworking . I scoured every back issue of every magazine I have. I borrowed a copy of Workbenches: From Design And Theory To Construction And Use by Christopher Schwarz from the public library, then bought a copy of my own once I realized I’d found the Holy Grail. I’ll save most of my gushing for a proper review (that’s another post) and try to st...

Work(shop) in Progress #6: New Table Saw : Unpacking and Assembly of Ridgid R4511

03-22-2009 05:01 AM by PurpLev | 50 comments »

So after much research and debates, I have finally charged the card, and 2 days later the delivery arrived with the new saw in the box (I opted to have it delivered from the store as opposed to pick it up myself – at 450lbs, I simply wouldn’t be able to unload it myself) Delivery from HD was swift and smooth, positive and friendly guy stop at my place saturday morning, and helped me position the box in my garage – I couldn’t be happier (took 5 minutes, 4.5 of those was...

The Workbench #1: Introduction

03-22-2009 04:10 AM by Craig S. Cottingham | 6 comments »

So, I figure before I can start any Serious Woodworking Projects, I need a good workbench. Yes, I know it’s possible to be productive using a solid-core door on a pair of sawhorses, but I’m planning on turning the workbench into a Serious Woodworking Project of its own. I plan to use this opportunity to learn how to work with rough lumber (more on that later) and practice basic joinery (mortises and tenons, for instance) on something more forgiving than, say, a piece of furniture.

We come across these ideas, ideas which lead us to create things. Pieces of things that need adjusting, sanding, even fiddling with. Cutting this, notching that. Taking the time to attempt perfect fits and placement. These things typically start out as black and white. Maybe a drawing, or maybe they are not clear in the mind. When these things are clear in our minds they typically become clear, in color.Seeing it in color brings relief, the reality of its realism eases ones mind. These thin...

Another Birthday

03-22-2009 02:52 AM by Rustic | 12 comments »

Hi All, Well another birthday has come and so far it hasn’t been bad. I got the Kreg Rocket pocket jig. Can’t wait to use it. I have been wanting to get the kreg pocket hole kit for a long time. I think that my woodworking skills are about to take a new turn. By the way I just turned 42 today. UUUUUUGHHH!! I am certainly starting to feel my age.
