Hi friends, I know this is not woodworking but I don’t know where else to turn. My middle son is a vet on partial disability who had a terrible pain in his side in early October and went to the emergency room close to were he lives in Cottage Grove, Oregon. There he was told that the problem was his appendix and sent to a larger hospital in Eugene, Oregon where he was told it was his appendix and thenwould not let him eat for 48 hours waiting for a doctor to look at him and supposedl...
The tutorial is under construction.
For those of you who have read the LumberJocks’ E-mag you will know that I was asked by Ms Debbie to teach a class on-line.. The first lesson on how to make an end grain cutting board will be posted on in this blog series in the first week of May… just after the Maleny Wood Expo.. This will not be like the usual tutorial which is a single or multi-part explanation of how to do something… this will be a series of lessons posted every three or four days so that anyone wh...

I am working on both tutorials for a couple of reasons, to correct many areas that were unclear and to add in all the fixes I made in the comments sections. Some of the pictures I used were no longer showing up due to a glitch on the website I had them stored at and the tutorial made little sense without them. So I decided the text needed redoing also. I am very busy right now, but hope to get around to it soon.Stay tuned.Andy

Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #4: Let the Scrolling Begin - Casting on and Casting Off
Now that everyone has their patterns applied to the wood, we are finally ready to turn on our saws and do some cutting. Since the practice patterns that I have given you have no inside cuts, we are going to learn some practical ways to start and finish our cutting lines. I call this ‘casting on’ and ‘casting off’ the wood. Most people – especially when starting out – just aim for the part of the design that is closest to the edge and start cutting. ...
I had hoped to leave this announcement until the relevant issue of Wood Magazine came out. However people have started to recognise my Zee box as being in the next (October) issue (I am told its due to be on the newsstands 11th October) along with an article on how to make it. Strangely they (Wood Magazine) in the person of Lucas Peters approached me about featuring it. I thought it was the other way around, you submit stuff to them!. Oh well. This was way back in February as they have to ...
About nine months ago, I had my semi-annual physical, & I had an increase in my white blood cells, so my Doctor made an appointment with an oncologist. The oncologist took a bone marrow biopsy, & the results showed that I have Chronic Lymphatic Leukemia, (CLL). They call CLL the friendly cancer. Many people live a long life with this condition. He then set me up for a CT scan of my lungs, & abdomen to see what could be causing my problem. The scan showed so...
