Buddy Icon

03-15-2007 10:09 AM by Lemonjello | 8 comments »

I’ve tried several time to replace the buddy icon with a picture, to no avail. I’m using a MAC and Safari browser and I can choose file and click upload. Nothing, it goes to a blank screen and have waited for ten minutes and not happening. Any clues?

Well, I got one project done

03-15-2007 06:31 AM by WayneC | 1 comment »

I’ve been hammered at work this week and have had little time to do any woodwork. I was able to get out into the shop tonight and put together a simple coping sled for my router table. It felt good to get something put together. I had picked up a new flush trim bit a couple of weekend ago and made a handle from a template. A few pieces of MDF and a couple of clamps and I am off and running. All and all a good way to release some stress. I’m trying to decide what to work on...

Fellow Lumberjocks… I have not been very active lately on Lumberjocks because I have been busy preparing for a national certification test. This has been very time consuming. Also, my parents are getting along well into old age and require a lot of attention. My father has just been diagnosed in the final stages of Parkinsons. This has presented some new challenges since my mother just had her hip replaced. I also still take care of Ms D and am helping her prepare for a...

The Chairs -

03-14-2007 07:03 PM by schroeder | 17 comments »

The dining room chair portion of the project was challenging for me. As I had never built chairs before, I did the research and decided on a plan from “In the Craftsman Style”, by Rex Alexander. The chair is daunting and me being a little slow, I ended up building 9 prototypes (and then cutting into scrap) from ash before gathering a “technique” for completing the joinery that would reflect the craftsmanship I wanted. I ended up with the chair above, I made the first two sets for my wife, (...

My Name is Todd, and I am a LumberJock Junkie...

03-14-2007 03:59 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 23 comments »

Is There Help? Well, I have been with LumberJocks for a solid week and I am just thoroughly addicted. I often check in during the day when I take a break from the shop, and I can’t wait to get home from the jobsite to check in on the postings and comments. “Do the clients have a computer I can get on? Do they have wireless available? Focus Todd! Focus!” More to Come I have plenty to share, and just as important – to learn. I have great experience, but sh...

”The Beauty of Wood Art” ....and so this morning i am just pounding out some thought think as this substance called ether is slowed down and takes on a body form called words…. —-gathering words, is like the woodsman who knows that in the pith of the forest flower, there is a sponge of gathering goodness, that yearns to be harvested, from the overflow of heart-felt expressions of eye seeing i…. —-sowing in the morning, sowing in the evening and all...

Simple jigs, tool holders and such #1: In and around the shop

03-14-2007 09:31 AM by Lemonjello | 4 comments »

Well, I am largely outclassed here by the quality of woodworking showcased here. I am one of the knuckle dragging, hammer swinging, 2×4 hacking Carpenter types who secretly read FWW and othe woodworking pubs. to get a fix in between the chaotic days of “You’re not done yet!?” daily work. I must admit, I am working on actually having a bonafide shop to work in rather than the roll in/roll out, dodge the rain, sloping driveway, rusting tool dilema of today. Some day. ...

Learning from the Masters... #1: David Marks

03-14-2007 07:11 AM by Ethan Sincox | 14 comments »

This past weekend, I spent four hours of some of the best “class time” I’ve ever had in my life. When I heard David Marks was going to be teaching some classes at our local Woodcraft store, I jumped at the chance to meet him and learn from him. Unfortunately, my bank account wasn’t so eager to jump, so I only attended one of the four classes – I picked his finishing class. I figured it would contain more information I could use on a regular basis (the ot...
