Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure: Items to Build for Fundraiser #4: Next item to make: Several sets of coasters, maybe?

06-20-2010 11:27 PM by Jonathan | 3 comments »

This might not actually be the next item I make for the auction, but I think I will be making a set of coasters for the auction. I may not make them next because I think coasters would be an excellent use of scrap wood since they’d be made up of smaller pieces. So, I might wait until I cut a bit of the pink lyptus up for other auction items first. Then I can use the cut offs for the coasters instead of cutting a new section off the plank. I think I’m going to run a pink s...

Unique Father's Day Gift

06-20-2010 07:45 PM by ChuckV | 14 comments »

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads! This past winter, we were at Old Sturbridge Village. We saw a demonstration of a spill plane. My young sons were fascinated by this tool.

This is from the description at LV:Before matches became widely available in the 1860s, long, coiled wood shavings known as spills were used to transfer a flame from one location to another, such as from a fireplace to ...

Last year (July 2009) I was diagnosed with stage 4 (terminal) colon cancer. I had metastasis to my liver and lymph nodes. The doctors told me to get my final affairs in order, and that I might not live through the end of the year. Well, clearly I have managed to stay here a bit longer then expected. Thanks to the good Lord for providing me with the people I needed to beat the cancer back, and the attitude that was required to help it all come together. I was told by my oncologist that there w...

The real cost of business

06-20-2010 07:08 PM by sawblade1 | 4 comments »

Hello fellow LJ’s my buddy A1 Jim kinda help set the tone for this blog entry with his topic how much is your woodworking worth ? Well I am writing about the cost of doing business as a wood worker. A wood working business is pretty much the same across the board regardless who started it, most of us dream of getting some form of compensation for our labors and heaven forbid materials but what does it really take for us to make a living off of woodworking. Let’s examine my company...

Woodworking in the Congo #1: Maybe this time I can actually do it

06-20-2010 11:38 AM by PG_Zac | 16 comments »

As many of you know I’m working in the DRC, and have been for a couple of years. All of my jobs in the Congo so far have been on mines, and mines always kill trees. You just have to look through my blogs and projects to know that I hate seeing a tree go to waste. On my first (and second) Congo mining job I made an offer to the Mine – Give me an equipped workshop and your dead trees, and I’ll teach the locals woodwork in my spare time. The reason is three-fold: a.)...
