I have had quite a few requests on how the lincoln log jig works, I will give it a shot at explaining it.First I rip the logs to 23/32 square and then take them to the router table and using a roundover bitround the edges. Next set the jig stops to the far left setting (right hole in jig) and cut the short and long logs to length. Next move the stops to the right setting (left hole in the jig) and cut the dados setting the 3/4 in dado blade to 1/8 above the sled. Next I take a few of ...

I have been reading blogs for a couple of years now and even though I work in I.T. and am an Internet savvy individual I have never made a blog post. I don’t know why I suppose I just didn’t feel I had much to offer that wasn’t already being covered by someone else who probably knew more than I did. Now you may be wondering what the title of this post has to do with my lack of experience in blogging so I will try not to ramble and get to the point. One of my many hobbie...
I think everything is pretty much done. I really do. I am almost afraid to say anything though because there seems to be so many little details that I know there is bound to be something out of kilter. This morning I woke up to the message that none of the article links worked on the site. That got my eyes opened a bit quicker than my cup of coffee did. I did figure out the problem and it is now corrected. It was simple, but as with most cases such as that, when working with html and a...
The Sawdust Chronicle’s Build challenge is all most over. I have about nine day left including the extra three I asked for, and two weeks ago I changed everything I was doing and started over with a new design. So the question is, will I make it? am I nuts? well the answer to both of them questions is a great big YES!!! I will make, and yes I am nuttier than squirrel poop. Here is the link to the update to my blog if you want to see my new design or leave me a note wishing me good luck....
I think everything is running normally now. At least I hope so. I was happy to say that I woke up this morning and was able to access my site by typing in the normal address. (I had to clear the cache in my browser, but it worked right away when I did) I had a couple of orders yesterday too, so it appears that all the mechanics of the site are functioning properly. It will probably take a day or so for the servers to catch up with the domain change but everyone should be able to access th...
WOODTURNING from the Wheelchair(just a copy and paste from www.jamiespeirs.com ) Woodturning is one of the crafts that lends itself towards most disabilities. It can be done in a fairly small area with relatively inexpensive equipment. It is not overly strenuous and can be quick to show results; hence it’s mass popularity. The object of this is not to go into any great detail about woodturing itself, rather on guidelines on what look for in a course or in a tutor. Red Pine Three T...
This article was originally posted on the “Little Good Pieces” blog on September 13, 2010. I finished construction of my first piece of greenwood furniture the other day. True, it still lacks a seat, but that sort of counts as a second project, and I really didn’t want to wait till spring to post about it. Not terribly impressive is it? It’s just a little footstool of white oak without any curves or ornamentation of any sort. However, this stool has great ...
With a surplus of pumpkins this fall (folks just aren’t spending the money ) I have pumpkins to dispose of. Why not have a little fun and get some target practice!
Well, I did it! Last night sometime after supper, I got brave and hit the ‘publish’ button on my new site. After looking at it all week long, it seemed that it was time to really check things out. I still had to finish those few pattern packets, but I needed to try some things out like making sure the processor and ordering process worked and I didn’t want to wait because the general phone customer support isn’t available on weekends (except if you choose to purchas...
