"BE Art-Full Art" --by RusticWoodArt

01-28-2007 03:08 PM by frank | 6 comments »

”BE Art-Full Art” ....and so the journey goes on as i continue my knocking-knot-knock at this my place of being, the incessant and perpetual gnawing in the root of this my tree trunk frame…. —-just stop and look at me now, where i am going is not from where i have been, just as i am not the one i thought myself to be when i started out on this holy pilgrimage carrying my wood piece alms, as i searched for a temple that i might give my wooden relics to…. ...

Great Aussie Inventions for Woodworkers - Video

01-28-2007 12:25 PM by Don | 11 comments »

Australians pride themselves as a fairly innovative lot. I think this came about because before the benefits of globalization and lower prices for imported goods, Australians had to make what they couldn’t afford. As a consequence of this, there are many unique products that have been designed here for woodworkers. This video covers one of them. The WASP Sander is meant to be fitted to a drill press or lathe. Mine is mounted to my drill press. This video takes a little while to l...

Wearing Tight Baseball Caps - or No Vanity Here!

01-28-2007 09:02 AM by Don | 9 comments »

I decided it was time for a change of my Buddy Picture. I thought I looked pretty cool when this was taken, so decided to use this for a few days. Its only 32 years ago, so thought I’d let some of you younger ones, without much hair, and now at the same age as I was when this picture was taken, see what wearing tight baseball caps has done to your domes. My wife and I have frequently commented on how many young men seem to be losing their hair these days. So that’s our theory ...

Smoked Pork

01-28-2007 07:50 AM by Shawn | 9 comments »

So this has nothing to do with wood work, but Karson’s chickens inspired me to do some last smoking before i move into a condo. So I smoked some pork loins last night for dinner, they turned out well, but I didnt keep quite a good enough eye on them, so they ended up finishing with about 20 minutes of cold smoke, this is not good eats as cold smoke creates WAY too much smoke flavor and not tasty smok, but rather, ya just eww. But my spice rub was good, and once I cut away the tasty c...

What was I thinking?

01-28-2007 07:19 AM by scottb | 7 comments »

Ever since the Winter Contest was announced I’ve been wracking my brain for something to put up. Not having much of a backlog of projects, I’ve been looking at finishing something in progress, or dreaming up something new and great, or at least Most creative. So holidays came and went, whirlwind that they are, esecially when you throw in a few birthdays, and other social/work/family obligations. I also managed to delude myself about how much freetime I’d have while paring...

Wood Shows #2: Ah, wood shows

01-27-2007 11:52 PM by MsDebbieP | 11 comments »

Yes, today Rick and i headed to a woodshow in the region. We went to check out lathes. Lathes… hmm that’s an interesting topic. Let’s go there for a moment. We first looked at lathes in our local big box store and asked about lathe tools. They don’t carry them. “Why not?” we asked. Well, it seems that once someone buys their lathe tools they don’t usually by many more so they don’t sell a lot. Ok. That makes sense—almost. They probably don...

All Change

01-27-2007 10:30 PM by Philip Edwards | 5 comments »

Big changes at Philsville. Yes, I’ve been changing the workshop around. Again….....First up – the garage door. I have a large double garage door at the front of my workshop (Well, it is a double garage) and, whilst giving easy access, also allows all the heat to disappear in the Winter as well as letting the wind whistle though…...not perfect.So, Plan A was turned down by the Authorities (well, the Missus) On to Plan B. I knocked up some timber studwork around the insi...

Stardate 01272007

01-27-2007 08:48 PM by Bill | 5 comments »

Ok, so I have completed my last two projects – an entry bench and a wall bed. I posted the pictures to my website. My next project is an artist stand. I have a picture and the wood. Next step, start cutting. At the same time, I am working on some smaller items I can offer as well. I have some great plans and instructions, but my results have been less than spectacular at the moment. But, today is a new day and I can achieve some new results. I plan to focus the smaller ite...

Hi! All You You Lumberjock Addicts'

01-27-2007 08:37 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 8 comments »

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I think I’ve turned into a complete Lumberjocks Junky, “Just ask my Sweety.”One example, I used to have my homepage set too Google News, that doesn’t seem to interest me as much anymore, so now Lumberjocks is my homepage. I’ve noticed in the past few weeks the members have loosened up with their comments, which I think is nice to see. When I first joined back in August, 2006, there were quite a few views of my post...
