Posting Competition

02-02-2007 04:25 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 19 comments »

This morning I was shocked to see that I slipped down the list so far in the number of postings. I decided several weeks ago that I couldn’t keep ahead of Dick Cain. Then, I just keep getting more and more behind. Thanks to all of you that have given so much effort to this website, and the comraderie it fosters. I spent several months in a Wooden Flute group on the internet, and even though I met a few great folks there, I seemed to always head back to the shop angry and upset, an...

Voting in the Winter Competition

02-02-2007 04:19 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 12 comments »

Wow: I just cast my votes in the winter competition, and it was a pure joy. The programming behind making it happen was incredible Martin. You should have entered your “website” as a project. I am impressed. I also enjoyed selecting from the two different categories. I would surely like to see a “Carving/Sculpture” category in the next one. Really great projects to choose from, and knowing something about the woodworkers behind them was also cool. I was disa...

Hearing from the experts.

02-02-2007 06:48 AM by dennis mitchell | 7 comments »

Now someone is telling me peanut butter is bad for my heart. Well I was so proud of switching from butter to peanut butter…and I saw on the news coffee is good for me this week. I guess I just can’t trust what i hear. I was looking at one of those woodworking web sites where someone has a question and the experts come crawling out of the woodwork with all this stuff. The one that got me was blotchy stain. This came up three different times and the poor guys asking the question was...

Lumberjocks T-shirt has arrived!

02-02-2007 06:12 AM by Ethan Sincox | 3 comments »

Love the feel and fit of the organic cotton. Now if I can just find my digital camera… Thank goodness I don’t keep it in the workshop! I’d NEVER find it then. But, funny enough, I’m having a hard enough time trying to find it here in the house. eh… I’m sure it will turn up. When it does, I’ll post a new pic.

I just added a handful of projects to my list. One curse of having all this time outside of the shop... I’d better get back in there before I keep finding more inspiration than I know what to do with! Arghhhh, I just thought of another one I forgot to add to the list!

Learning Curve #4: Personal Growth

02-02-2007 02:07 AM by MsDebbieP | 7 comments »

Today I made a couple more “Life Guide” tools to use with my clients and as I look back at my day I realized that I was quite efficient and if anyone had been watching they might have thought that I knew what I was doing! With an idea of what I wanted, I “selected” the wood that I wanted, I cut it to size on the mitre saw, I started up the ol’ (well, “new”) spindle sander and smoothed down the edges and sides, I used the scroll saw to cut out desig...

Health & Saftey - No one interested?

02-01-2007 11:53 PM by Don | 9 comments »

Forgive me for doing a little self-promotion here, but yesterday I posted an item entitled “Making the Jerrjens Mini-Cyclone”. It seems to have fallen off the radar screen without any comments and possibly no readers. Now, I really don’t care if members don’t read all of my posts, this site is getting so busy it’s almost impossible to keep up. But this article covers one of the most popular shop modification in Australia. There have been literally hundreds of ...

February 1st means one month closer...

02-01-2007 11:41 PM by Ethan Sincox | 3 comments »

I like February 1st so much better than January 1st for several reasons… Reason 1: I know this will make me sound like a bad person, but by this time, we’ve already seen a significant drop in the number of people crowding my gym from 4:30 to 6:30 PM. I attribute this lower attendance to those who have already blown their New Year’s Resolutions. Reason 2: But I also like February 1st because it is that much closer to March 1st. And that means we are closer to April 1st. And by that...

Maintenance and Cleaning

02-01-2007 12:02 AM by dennis mitchell | 1 comment »

I would rather clean then do all that maintenance that comes with woodworking. I have been cleaning and trying to find places for all the “stuff”. I still have this list..Drain the compressor and change its oil. Get the O-ring for my staple gun. Fix the cord or switch on the belt sander. I tried to get my planer and joiner blades sharpened. When I went to change the planer I pulled a set of very dull blades out. So those needed sharpened before I could switch. I also got a bunch o...
