Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #19: Thursday Tour RAH's Workshop

2451 days ago by Douglas Bordner | 15 comments »

This week’s tour is in Delhi, CA, just down Hwy 99 from WayneC and Bill Brooks. Lot of Californians on this tour. Could it have anything to do with the advancing winter in Canada (and Nebraska for that matter)? I expect more Midwesterners to step and volunteer for a tour!Ron is a roofing contractor who has annexed a 20×30 foot area of his 40×60 metal building for a wood shop. The rest of his building is reserved for his business as a roofing contractor. Here Deb takes note ...

100 pounds of clay - racks and racks ................................................... PHOTO BLOG

2453 days ago by Dan'um Style | 11 comments »

Thought it might be fun to share photos of my tiles drying. Then again it might be boring. Well anyways !! Tiles are sitting on the fiber ceiling tiles you buy from Lowes. Bought the damaged ones real real cheap. Ceiling tiles are the best for this. Draws the wetness out of the clay and speeds the drying cycle time. Also have an industrial size box fan blowing 24-7 on them. They’re getting dry extra-quick. Will start a kiln load sooner then estimated.

Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #18: Wednesday Workshop: Blake's Workshop

2459 days ago by Douglas Bordner | 10 comments »

This week’s visit is to Blake's shop in Santa Cruz, CA. Blake is a part-time firefighter and student, who eventually wants to fight fire full-time. He has been a member for only twenty days, but burst on the LJ scene with his claw box challenge, and has been active in posting boxes, jigs and blog topics since signing on. He has a great shop with a host of good tools, some new and some handed down from his Father-In-Law. And he has posted the rehabilitation of a 1959 Dewalt Radial Ar...

Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #17: Thursday Tour @ the shop of YorkshireStewart

2465 days ago by Douglas Bordner | 22 comments »

Our inspection this week is to a another garage-based shop in Great Britain. We visited YorkshireStewart, whose facilities are “just a half mile or so from the rapidly eroding boulder clay cliffs of the East Yorkshire coast.” Here’s a map to identify the location of those of us that were daydreaming about shop class while we were in geography class. In this shot it’s apparent that there is no small measure of wonder being manufactured there. This is a wooden ...

Video Journey - Oak Dovetailed Blanket Chest

2468 days ago by John Nixon | 13 comments »

I recently finished a dovetailed blanket chest as a wedding gift for my good friend. I think it came out pretty nice. I was able to get it into his house while he was away on his honeymoon. He and his new bride really loved it! It’s a great feeling knowing that they will have this gift and cherish it forever. I made a video about the entire process.Here’s a link to the video. Check it out, and leave a comment telling me what you think:http://www.eaglelakewoodworking.com/post...

Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #16: Wednesday Workshop: WayneC's shop

2473 days ago by Douglas Bordner | 17 comments »

This week is a continuation of a homage to the Lumberjocks California Highway 99 group (including Bill Brooks, Obi and WayneC). Wayne, as many know who follow his blog series has a passion for rehabilitating older tools with an emphasis on hand planes of all types. And he has awakened the desire in this woodworker (for one) to brush up my hand tool skills, as well as to give new life to tools that are looking for a new home. He also has a fair menagerie including birds, cats and (surprise) do...

Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #15: Wednesday Workshop: Bob2's shop.

2479 days ago by Douglas Bordner | 20 comments »

Bob2 has described his current shop digs as “A collection of tools at or near electrical outlets.” The space is in his business warehouse until he is able to pour concrete for a dedicated home shop. I feel instantly at home in this environment as there is a lot packed into a small space, and it’s none too organized. No sense burning brain cells on prettifying and organizing when the thrust to learn and create is where the true fire exists. As long as you know what pil...

Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #14: Wednesday Workshop: Bill's Workshop

2487 days ago by Douglas Bordner | 7 comments »

We waited patiently, and here they are. The pictures of Bill’s shop have arrived and Debbie was quick to sign on for a trip to sunny California. We visited Bill's shop in Turlock, along the Lumberjock corridor that runs along California Highway 99 (from WayneC’s in Sacramento, down to Obi’s in Salida and then to Turlock). And she went right to work. We both liked the offcut storage by the saw and the anti-fatigue mats at the various workstations. Plus Bill has a gr...

Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #13: Wednesday Workshop: Gary CN"s Man Cave with a side trip to the comics.

2494 days ago by Douglas Bordner | 20 comments »

It’s a visit to Gary CN's workshop, another of Deb’s northern US neighbors in Michigan. Gary is a fairly new member who invited us to tour his great home workshop. We are just a bit like vampires of lore, we need to be invited in before we can tour.This tip of the hat to Gizmodyne, WayneC, Bob Babcock, Bob2, Thos Angle et. al. John's Lumberjocks Comics are great. Better close the door before you visit or your spouse will wonder what in the Sam Hill you are doing. Trust me on th...
