Ok…I have been out of school 3 weeks now…have done a TON around the house (projects soon) on our landscaping make-over…but I noticed I am getting EVEN MORE addicted to you guys! During the school year I barely get a chance to check some of the new projects each day…and even then I feel like I am cheating my students or family because I should be doing something related to teaching or family with my time… But now I am 24/7 off the work clock and onto woodworki...

Thanks Guys!

One More Night- OK I had to stay up one more night and do some final polishing on the site. There are still a couple of things I need to take care of but they can wait. I am very comfortable that the site is ready for public consumption. There is supposed to be a press release and I had to get this done. Friday the paper here in my Ohio hometown is doing an article, I am still quite attached to my roots here. Besides the press release, I am trying to get an article in the Billings, ...

Craftsman Bungalow Restoration #11: Dining in Style

06-29-2007 02:46 AM by gizmodyne | 6 comments »

Selling Point Besides our clawfoot tub, the only nice thing in the our house when we bought it was the dining room. A picture from our walkthrough. Fir wainscoting with a plate rail. We later found out that the wall paper is a custom reproduction of a Morris and Co. paper from the turn of the century. We have visited William Morris’ birth home and country farm in England last year. The wall paper hid most of the damage. The ceiling was cracked, peeling, and had an unfinished l...

I Can't Keep Up!

06-29-2007 02:00 AM by Steffen | 11 comments »

I can’t wait until I get moved to Northern California. Not because I am particularly anxious to get out of Southern California (however the heat is a little much this time of year) I just want to STOP DRIVING AROUND!!! Every time I sit down to rummage through Lumberjocks I find my email bin filled to overflowing. After driving to and from Nor Cal I just don’t have time to sort through it all. I hope you all aren’t too offended that I’m not giving your projects th...

Quarter Size Cherry Quilt Chests #7: Reflections, Fitting & Finishing

06-28-2007 09:02 PM by David | 16 comments »

Well, I have to admit to being a bit melancholy the last few days. I found great solstice getting out to my shop to begin the fitting and finish on my cherry chests. I am amazed at how much work goes into something so small. I always imagine things going quicker, faster and smoother in my mind. It was nice to work in the quite of my shop without having to wear hearing protection to block out the harsh whine of machinery. As I worked on fitting the Baltic Birch plywood bottom on my chests, ...

M7 and the Cherry Tree #3: The concluding Part

06-28-2007 07:04 PM by Tony | 12 comments »

So finally I have recovered some energy from lifting those heavy logs on my own – now that summer has finished here – we had 7 days of sunshine, the longest day of the year has passed and winter is racing towards us (My wife says whoopee “soon it’s time for skiing”) I will try to give some information on M7 and Stihl 660 used for my Cheery tree cutting.Let’s deal with the Stihl 660 first of all. I am not going to bore you all with the technical details; these can be found on the Stihl websit...

Quarter Size Cherry Quilt Chests #6: Installing a Makers-Mark

06-28-2007 05:54 PM by David | 9 comments »

This blog entry shows how I install the small (1 inch diameter x 3mm thick) brass Makers-Marks on my projects. I like the traditional feel that the labels give a project. I prefer painting the recess black so that when the label is installed there is a small subtle black reveal line around the outside edge. This is strictly personal preference. This Installing a Makers Mark Tutorial is available as a PDF download on my website I get my labels from a very kind chap in England – his conta...

Craftsman Bungalow Restoration #10: To Blog?

06-28-2007 04:27 PM by gizmodyne | 11 comments »

Sidenote I am trying to get caught up with the old stuff, so I can write about the current renovation on the kitchen that started this week. I have been struggling with where to keep this blog. I used to write about my house on my own blog. But I like the picture posting here. I think this site design or some variant on gardening or home renovation would be useful to the many housebloggers out there. Anyway.. I will keep on here.

Today I tied up the loose ends on another project. I decided not to start another project because I wanted to finish my website. I added contact links on most pages, and I have a hidden link in the “Woodworkers Welcome” page. When you click over my picture in the shop you go to a shop tour page. It is not listed in the navigation menu. I thought that was pretty neat because it still leaves the site real clean. It is sort of a hidden treasure for you guys. I finally am...

Learning Opportunity #4: What is the thickness of a human hair?

06-28-2007 03:38 AM by Don | 13 comments »

Yesterday, I took my new TS Aligner Jr. and DowelMax over to a friends home. (I purchased both of these tools during my recent visit to Canada.) I was meeting with him and another Mate for a BBQ lunch and a chat about our mutual interest in woodworking. All three of us served on the executive committee of our woodworking club, so we have formed a close bond. I showed them the results of having calibrated my table saw with the TS Aligner by taking a sample of a perfectly fitted Dowe...
