All Change

01-27-2007 10:30 PM by Philip Edwards | 5 comments »

Big changes at Philsville. Yes, I’ve been changing the workshop around. Again….....First up – the garage door. I have a large double garage door at the front of my workshop (Well, it is a double garage) and, whilst giving easy access, also allows all the heat to disappear in the Winter as well as letting the wind whistle though…...not perfect.So, Plan A was turned down by the Authorities (well, the Missus) On to Plan B. I knocked up some timber studwork around the insi...

Stardate 01272007

01-27-2007 08:48 PM by Bill | 5 comments »

Ok, so I have completed my last two projects – an entry bench and a wall bed. I posted the pictures to my website. My next project is an artist stand. I have a picture and the wood. Next step, start cutting. At the same time, I am working on some smaller items I can offer as well. I have some great plans and instructions, but my results have been less than spectacular at the moment. But, today is a new day and I can achieve some new results. I plan to focus the smaller ite...

Hi! All You You Lumberjock Addicts'

01-27-2007 08:37 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 8 comments »

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I think I’ve turned into a complete Lumberjocks Junky, “Just ask my Sweety.”One example, I used to have my homepage set too Google News, that doesn’t seem to interest me as much anymore, so now Lumberjocks is my homepage. I’ve noticed in the past few weeks the members have loosened up with their comments, which I think is nice to see. When I first joined back in August, 2006, there were quite a few views of my post...

If you are interested, take a tour of my small shop. This video is not very professional and refers to some Aussie specific stuff which I won’t bother explaining. Hope you enjoy.

Cam update

01-27-2007 08:33 AM by Shawn | 9 comments »

So today I went and got batteries for my camera, took a bunch of pics of different projects, then realized, I still dont have a cable to connect the cam to my computer, so I’m going to go get that cable, THEN, retake the pictrues in my new home, because the ones I took tonight sucked…3 more projects comming down the pipe…not nearly as nice as some of the other work on here, but I hope to improve as I go.

Lumberjocks T-shirt

01-27-2007 06:10 AM by Ethan Sincox | 4 comments »

Yesterday I ordered my lumberjocks t-shirt. I really wanted to try the green one, because it looked like the color would go really well with the green in my Campbell Tartan kilt. But in the end I decided against it because I couldn’t get the green in a fitted shirt (and with greens, if you don’t get just the right color match, it looks horrible). So I went for the fitted organic cotton shirt in white. Much more versatile… and I’ve always had a thing for the feel ...

A Slight Delay...

01-27-2007 06:02 AM by Ethan Sincox | 7 comments »

The new goggles I ordered from for woodworking came in the mail yesterday. I tried them on, with much anticipation, and was quite disappointed! They sealed really well on about half of the mask (the top half), but the other half was a different story. I’m not sure if this was the intended design, but I could see the ground through the gap between my cheeks and the bottom part of the seal. Something tells me this was not intentional… As much as I lik...

Planer Blades.....

01-26-2007 10:12 PM by Philip Edwards | 7 comments »

Hi FolksDo any of the guys use a Tormek wet grinder? It’s a handy sharpenng system (although a little pricey). I use mine primarily for re-establishing bevels on chisels and irons after numerous honings (on my beloved waterstones) have worn the edge out of shape.There are a wide range of jigs available for the Tormek for things like scissors, axes, gouges, etc and the one I’ve always been interested in is the planer blade sharpening jig. Has anyone tried to sharpen their own plane...

Sometimes it can be fun

01-26-2007 08:29 PM by Shawn | 1 comment »

To take some boards you have no need forl, and just see what happens. My wife and I are moving, and I had an 8’ solid pine shelf that I used for tool storage ect above my pegboard in our old basement suite. With the move I had no need for it, so now i had just an 8 foot pine 1×10. For more of the story, you need, more of the story. I’m currently building a nice oak entertainment center, but in the mean time I still have my ugly black vaneered MDF one, and an old Ikea 3 d...
