Caught in the act! Fluorescent shop fixture WARNING!

05-23-2017 12:36 PM by woodshaver Tony C | 26 comments »

I HAVE NEVER SEEN A FLUORESCENT FIXTURE DO THIS IN MY 70 + YEARS!!! I was out in the shop doing my thing when my wife called me on for lunch. I closed the garage door and enjoyed my lunch with her. About 15 minutes later I went back out into the shop and smelled something strange! I noticed one of my fluorescent fixture lamps were flickering and buzzing. (Yah..what’s new!!!). I got on my folding step stool for a closer look and HOLY SMOKES! the transformer was melting straight throu...

Shop stuff #94: Preparing bone for guitar nut and saddle blanks

05-22-2017 08:15 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

I checked a whole bunch of how to’s online and the process is not difficult. Just time consuming. Mostly waiting. Now I have a bunch of stock to make saddles and nuts from for guitars. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVSNnA9rY1o

The Beginner's Hand Tool Kit (Some thoughts)

05-20-2017 10:02 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 2 comments »

View on YouTube The video covers mostly the tool side of things but I’d like to talk a bit about the concepts behind some of the first tools you buy. This is mostly just my opinion and my experience speaking (which isn’t much compared to some!). My main reason for the list in the video is as follows. You want to buy tools that help you develop confidence as well as skills. Buying an axe as your first woodworking tool is something that I recommend each budding woodworker do. ...

Shop Chips #1: Advice on Vises! (For beginners)

05-18-2017 05:46 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 0 comments »

View on YouTube so this’ll kind of be my “vlog within a blog” sort of thing. For this week I wanted to talk about something that the internet seems to complicate for alot of people and that’s vises. I cover it in the video but suffice to say that the best vise that you can possibly get is the one that has all the parts, the jaws move smoothly and freely, isn’t missing any parts, and most importantly fits in the space that you have alloted for work. In ...

My ex-wife saw the one I made for my niece and wanted one too. So I made one for her. A variation on a theme. I found some nice pieces of walnut. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1J8l6i7noA

Woodworking as Therapy

05-14-2017 01:57 PM by Bravesst | 7 comments »

Allow me to introduce myself to Lumberjocks. I’m Mike and I’m a retired FDNY captain, been through lots of stuff, and about a year ago I got reconnected to woodworking. In the early nineties, I managed to put a small shop together with just some basic tools and skills, and I actually designed and cranked out a few pieces that I still use in my home today. I’d learned everything pretty much from books and magazines. Fast forward to 2016 and the magic of the internet. I’...

more resalvaged drawers

05-13-2017 10:55 PM by Blake Haskins | 0 comments »

https://youtu.be/E_IH6icdItI In this video, I put a top on top of a set of drawers headed for the trash. The top is plywood, and I clear coated it as well. I ended up stacking it on top of some filing cabinets that I ripped of a desk that was being thrown away. both units have plywood tops.If you enjoyed this video, then consider subscribing to the channel.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1834: Lots of Fun and New Projects!

05-13-2017 12:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I am finding that the greater amount of time between blogs is directly related to the amount of information that I want to share with you all. But that would follow common sense, wouldn't it? It seems that it is harder for me than I originally thought to get back in the habit of posting each morning or nearly every morning. I just can't get back in the rhythm of things. But I am doing my best, and that is what I can offer. As usual, things have been moving fast and furious a...

How to Make a Handy little Scribe

05-11-2017 02:04 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 0 comments »

View on YouTube One of things I absolutely hate to do in my work is to waste anything. Even if it only costs 2$ to purchase the materials I feel as though throwing away something that can be repurposed is like throwing that 2$ in the trash. To a certain extent there are things that need to be tossed, but when you can make something like a tool then I think it’s worth the while to take the time to make something useful out of that waste. Thus we have this little tool. I had wante...
