When do you say "no" to your jointer?

02-27-2007 11:34 AM by oscorner | 9 comments »

With a forecast of fowl weather this weekend, I didn’t plan to begin any new projects this weekend. I decided to get back to work on turning my air dried lumber into usable lumber, so I changed out the drum sander on my WoodMaster and put the planer head back on. This meant that I needed to remove my bandsaw on the SuperShop and replace it with my 6” jointer. Well, I spent many hours jointing and planing lumber into usable pieces. Of course, with rivened wood the wood is split...

Running for the Light: What to do with “Pop’s” Tools?

02-26-2007 07:55 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 8 comments »

I was reading Ethan’s blog this morning, and it pricked something in my heart that has been there for a few years now, but more recently surfaced for me. I understand the emotions and concerns that Ethan has for his good friend, and I am glad he is there to help “Bob” with it. I had been wondering what I had to say that had some meaning this week, since I see that Ethan has driven right on past me since I alerted him to the competition of posts a couple of weeks ago. Then, as I was thinkin...

Day 1

02-26-2007 05:53 AM by DaveC | 9 comments »

Alright here is my first attempt at a blog. I will be building a wooden bow I will include pictures and step by step details as I go along. Before I start I have to give credit where credit is due. Most of this info I learned from Dean Torges’s video “Hunting the bamboo-backed bow” I also learned a lot from the good folks at the “Leatherwall” traditional archery forum. http://www.bowyersedge.com/books.htmlhttp://leatherwall.bowsite.com/TF/lw/THREADSx2.CFM I highly recommend both ...

Life On Hold

02-26-2007 05:30 AM by dennis mitchell | 7 comments »

My bathroom vanity is on the back burner. I’ve been hoping to get the sink installed so I could do the last blog on it and get it put into projects. Instead I’ve been back to real work. I’ve spent a whole week out doing kitchen installs. It is worst than it sounds I agreed to do a kitchen. When I was an apprentice with a muralist he gave a piece of advice. “Be very careful of what you do because you will end up doing it.” So I will start building kitchens again. ...

Thankful...

02-26-2007 04:50 AM by Ethan Sincox | 6 comments »

I’m feeling very thankful and grateful today. I just found out that a friend of mine, Bob, the guy who helped me turn my osage orange mallet, had a series of small strokes recently. His sight and mental capacity has been severely affected to the point where he can no longer drive or operate any kind of machinery. He says it is like there is a big black hole in his head. He has a thought and before it gets to his mouth to say what he wanted to say or to his hands to move the way he...

Major Pulse upgrade and "Who's Online"

02-25-2007 09:46 PM by Martin Sojka | 29 comments »

Finally the BIG upgrade is here. I’ve spent last 3 weeks researching, brainstorming, designing and coding. By that I don’t mean 3 weeks of fulltime job of course, because as you know this is not supposed to be my fulltime job. But you get the idea. I knew that the addition of the Pulse was step in the right direction. It enables everybody to keep track with all new postings that are spread across many site sections like projects, blogs, forums etc. But I also knew that as our s...

"Pick-Up Sticks" --by RusticWoodArt

02-25-2007 02:50 PM by frank | 8 comments »

”Pick-Up Sticks” ....some of my building can best be described as playing a game of ‘pick-up sticks’, and while in the midst of an ever changing world that seeks to push it’s way, by ever increasing the surrounding domains of all those others, i have found a place where i can still play as a boy and build after my own hearts delight…. —-there are the times when after looking at all those others who are into building with wood, that i often feel ...

Thank you to all!

02-25-2007 02:29 AM by Roger Strautman | 8 comments »

I was just as surprised as Mark was to get a Lumberjocks tee shirt but with Best Creativity Winner on it! Many thanks must go to all that took part in this contest and to those that thought that mine was worthy enough to vote for and also to Martin who without we wouldn’t have this great site. I’m not as photogenic Mark is but I gave it my best shot.LOL. I figured if Mark can give you the Hulk Hogan look I can too. !http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q96/Carverrog/Lumberjock004.jp...
