Finally, initial help pages are here

03-02-2007 07:56 PM by Martin Sojka | 10 comments »

As you may already know, I’m working together with Ethan on our help pages these days. And now you can review the first outcomes of our work. We’ve published Help Overview and Frequently Asked Questions pages today (link to the Help section is right beside Feel the Pulse link in the header). I think that Ethan did a great job so don’t be too hard on us, please ;) Additional pages containing detailed formatting guides and how-tos will be added soon so stay tuned. This s...

'This Old Crack House' #7: My bruised ego

03-02-2007 06:43 PM by Dusty | 4 comments »

Two out of three lumberjocks surveyed say, they would rather have a sliver under there finger nail than get their ego bruised. Please pass the tweezers. I am an L.B.D. (learn by doing type of person). The carpenter I hired not only was temperamental and greedy; he certainly didn’t want me to learn anything from him. He called it “job security”. I called it short-sighted and shellfish under my breath. Right there I said to myself – if I ever was to learn woodworking I would ...

Thoughts on the Hollow Chisel Mortising Machine (updated 11-14-2007)

03-02-2007 06:05 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 18 comments »

In a recent Blog by Obi, he discussed using a router to cut mortises, and this started up a discussion, in which Don cautioned against getting a Hollow Chisel Mortiser. I think there are good thoughts on both sides of this debate, and I don’t mean to do anything other than offer some more experience about purchasing and using a Mortiser, and other methods of cutting mortises. As in anything, the more money you spend, the better tool you get. If I were buying just what I wanted, not what ...

Site blog discontinued and replaced with my personal LJ blog

03-02-2007 01:17 PM by Martin Sojka | 4 comments »

I’d like to inform you that I’ve decided to discontinue the updates on the original LJ Site Blog. All references to the Site blog have been replaced with the reference to my personal LJ blog. I found it much easier to write the site updates and news on my personal blog here. Another benefit is that you can comment on them in the same way as you comment on other LJ blogs. Note, that the transition should be smooth to all of the original Site Blog RSS subscribers.

Can't Seem To Get It Together.

03-02-2007 07:06 AM by dennis mitchell | 16 comments »

I’m trying to get my vanity installed waiting on the idiot plumber(Me). At least the electrician(Me again) got done today. My problem is I just never buy the right parts. I’m using an old sink that mounts on the wall with the faucet sticking out the back wall of the sink. I’ve only got a little bit of play with the pipes so after two trips to the hardware store I had to actually read the directions! I live out of town a ways so its is a pain to stop just to run to town to bu...

Day 3

03-02-2007 05:40 AM by DaveC | 2 comments »

Well the glue is dry. I take the clamps off, clean up the backside with a rasp (remove the hard glue drippings so I have a flat surface) and on the bandsaw I cut off the excess. Then I turn the bow on it’s side and plan the side flat. Now I can mark off the handle area and cut it out with the band saw. (Alright now I have to go upstairs and get the camera before I get too far along.) Now to get the basic shape I clean up the sides with the rasp and plane. Periodically picking...

"Tellin' Wood Stories" --by RusticWoodArt

03-02-2007 03:32 AM by frank | 9 comments »

”Tellin’ Wood Stories” ....and so just how good is your seeing and can you see where the shape is, or do you need to be given a hint to see what is all-ready there, but one then knows not what they are looking to see and so the shape of what is, remains for some to be passed on by as what are you talking about…. —-and what if no one ever asked you to look into this picture of wood, could you be counted on to take initiative and find for yourself the picture...

Must be Cabinet Week here at Lumberjocks

03-01-2007 12:56 PM by Obi | 5 comments »

This is the first time I can recall so many of the same type of projects posted at the same time. Maybe we can start a “Theme Week”. Or is that what the next contest is going to be… a “Theme Contest”?
