Another great line from Mr Krenovs book refering to the value of wood. “This stuff dosn’t grow on trees you know!’

Spent some time in my shop today. One project ready to spray and the glue up done on another and a couple of hours cleaning! My shop has been pretty much abandoned these last few years. Some how it became a storage facility. The blades ALL need sharpened! I can’t find anything. I like an orderly shop but I’m not an orderly worker. It is time to do my spring cleaning!!!This evening I was reading James Krenov’s book again and suprise the chapter is on the workshop. All about n...

Grant Writing Adventure 11-27-2006

11-27-2006 08:26 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 5 comments »

The National Association for the Self Employed (NASE) which I joined to get health insurance coverage, has a program to provide grants to small-business members for up to $5,000 for business needs. Their application is pretty simple, except that I need to send a full Business Plan, so I have been working on that document for several months. I have the Business/Marketing Plan nearly finished today, and so I will be sending out the application and grant proposal in the mail tomorrow. I am ...

Artistic Murmurings Uncovered

11-26-2006 02:33 PM by frank | 0 comments »

....to be an artist, is to be a part of the chaotic madness that surrounds me. I have inherited the wind and my mind screams with delight at the all my heart can see, as I proceed to remove the shadow that hangs over the many who are yet captivated by lack of pure sunlight. I am not a ‘copyright’ and therefore I can give myself away freely, knowing that as I have given, so also in likeness of manner that which is given shall yet return and attest to my well being of artistic ex...

Passion of Dreamers

11-25-2006 07:20 AM by frank | 2 comments »

“The love of wood as seen with the eye, felt with the heart and touched by the hand is the passion of dreamers, who have lived in the chaotic beauty of the forests, only to pass on to future generations this love.” —-flp __ Have you ever given much thought to the great gift you have, in that you can take a piece of wood and create a work that goes on beyond the scope of our time and bears witness to the fact that you are the author of its design? Good or bad, you have...

I’ve been reading “The Fine Art of Cabinetmaking” By James Krenov. The first portion of the book is a essay on wood. It is about an attitude we have toward wood. The care we take obtaining curing and milling lumber. I’m relating to his collecting Cocobolo, Indian Laurel, flitch-cut Pearwood and something called Incensio. The special care he takes drying and storing his wood. The art of resawing logs. The spirit of being a true craftsman.I’m reflecting on this as...

11-22-2006 09:57 PM by Martin Sojka | 3 comments »

As you know I’m working on the new format of the LumberJocks Woodworking Awards. Today my great friend Eric Martin prepared new set of Award logos for me and they are perfect. I’m not going to disclose them till the announcement of the Winter Awards. So stay tuned and I’m sure you will be pleasantly surprised. Thanks Eric ;) I’ve been thinking hard about the initial Awards categories. I don’t want to start with too many categories, just two or three and expand...

Bosch Contractor's Saw review posted

11-22-2006 07:05 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 1 comment »

I just finished up writing my thoughts on my latest tool purchase, the Bosch contractor’s saw. I posted the review in the Tool Forum section. I never thought I would be saying that I liked a Contractor’s style saw, but I did, so I decided to tell the others about it, thinking it might help them make a decision on a table saw. I have been surprised to see how widespread the lumberjocks exposure is getting, and so I realize that this review will be located by many others than...

creche #2: Stealth woodworking

11-22-2006 04:12 AM by scottb | 3 comments »

Delivered the creche this weekend, nearly complete. The woodworking aspects took longer than I expected, but not so bad that I was losing money on my time. The non-woodworking aspects however were another story. I cut two kerfs on the insides of both legs, pre-glueup, to slide in a piece of plexiglass (the cutomers request), to protect the statues. Didn’t have one at the bottom or top (planned on using hidden screws at the top) to help hold it in place. I was to also put a piece ...

WHAT'S UP? "While I'm out in my Shop". #6: Revamping my Dust Collector ductwork

11-19-2006 09:33 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 7 comments »

I just put this into this series to tie things together, but it’s not in the proper order, so bare with me.. Hi,Today, 6/21/2007, I changed the name on this blog, so members could find it easier. Things sure get haphazard, & messed up when you by a new piece of equipment, especially when you’re cramped for space. I bought a new planer about a year ago, & I’ve been in a tangle ever since. The first thing I had to do was rearrange all my power tools. After tha...
