Wood Thoughts #10: IKEA and the Workshop (Should Those Words Ever Be in the Same Sentence?)

27 days ago by Fr. Thomas Bailey, OSB | 1 comment »

- If you answered “yes” or “maybe” to the above question, please click this link. I returned home to my monastery last week, and boy was I in for quite a shock – the monastery moved without telling you?; changed all the locks?; turned out the lights and pretended no one was home? I only noticed one thing at first, someone had committed the unforgivable sin of utilizing the top of the table saw as a place to water and take care of Easter lilies. After I stopp...

Wood Thoughts #6: The Wood of the Cross (Different Style Than My Normal Entry: Good Friday Meditation)

83 days ago by Fr. Thomas Bailey, OSB | 3 comments »

Please Consider Checking Out My Website: MonkWerks.org This year is my 10th anniversary of priestly ordination, or at least it will be on June 11. Before I was ordained I spent 4 years studying at Saint Meinrad School of Theology and living with the monastic community there. In the archabbey church there are many beautiful stained-glass windows. One of my favorites was nestled on the northwest side, and we passed by it every time we went in procession into the church – the Crucif...

Wood Thoughts #4: Dear Diary ... (A Day in the Life of a Hobby Woodworker)

97 days ago by Fr. Thomas Bailey, OSB | 0 comments »

Please Consider Checking Out My Website: MonkWerks.org Dear Diary, This morning I awoke to a beautiful Saturday morning with the birds chirping and the sun shining, and I was reinvigorated and ready to tackle a new woodworking project. I quickly dressed, had breakfast, and checked out the new woodworking videos on YouTube. I couldn’t believe my luck. All my favorite Youtubers had posted new videos!!! Though tempted, I was not to be deterred from my task – I will sta...

Wood Thoughts #2: Yuz got skillz

112 days ago by Fr. Thomas Bailey, OSB | 0 comments »

Do you have any favorite, little known, online woodworkers? I was a strange kid. When I was in high school in the mid-nineties my peers were interested in watching Married with Children and playing on their PS1s. (I was still slumming it with my NES.) Sure I was happy to watch an episode of Married with Children; but if I flipped across PBS and the New Yankee Workshop was showing, I was going to stop and see what Norm Abrams was up to. (Though I am pretty sure it was Seattle Grunge Mus...

Wood Thoughts #1: Ommm = Zzzzuhm

118 days ago by Fr. Thomas Bailey, OSB | 1 comment »

Growing up in a family of six on a First Sergeant’s pay, meant that my parent’s provided my brothers and I with what we needed but there wasn’t much left over for extras. My father actually learned to refinish antiques because busted-up old – what other people called trash – antiques were cheaper than buying couches, beds, and dining room tables. The remainder of this week’s blog is now available on my website. Check it out.

Meanderings #3: Catching up on Life's events...

237 days ago by David Craig | 6 comments »

I haven’t been here for awhile. My apologies to friends here and thank you for the emails expressing your concern. Largest reason for my absence these last few months involves this - I have mentioned in my last blog that I had a hearing that came up to discuss the new “formula” that is being imposed in the state of Michigan for child support deductions. I won’t go into any tirades but the increase was pretty significant and my take home salary has been greatly r...

Blogging instead of Woodworking #1: Windows and Doors by Hand

238 days ago by Douglas | 1 comment »

With so many places to post, I’ve decided to do my “main” blogging on my own site, http://dcwwoodworks.com. So this LJ’s “blog” will be a place for me to crosspost HERE for those of you (ok, almost all of you) who aren’t going over THERE. Thanks. My latest is a post about getting into making windows and interior/entry doors… http://dcwwoodworks.com/blog/2013/11/14/windows-and-doors-by-hand

Safety (or the lack thereof) #3: DADO BLADES CAN'T CUT 1 INCH OF HARDWOOD IN ONE PASS

327 days ago by PASs | 14 comments »

I’m a BONEHEAD.I like my Dado blades.But they have their limitations.Especially pulling the blade through on your radial arm saw.Ripping a 3/4 inch dado 1 inch deep in a piece of hardwood tougher than oak (I have mallets made from this stuff) exceeds their abilityWhen you try anyway the chippers decide to group together in a show of rebellion and the teeth get mad enough to fly off the handle…er…blade. I knew better.I was in a rush.The fix was $75 at saw stop getting new ...

389 days ago by mickeyt | 0 comments »

How to convert your Performax drum sanders 2 ½ inch dust port to a 4 inch for less then 5 bucks I have the older model 16 – 32 Performax drum sander like this one and at times it is a pain in the you know what with the belt always needing consent adjustment and keeping the machines drum head level. I really love the machine and what can be done with it.But it kicks up a lot of fine dust, my dust collector system works pretty well but as we all know it is next to impossible to ...

WoodForTheTrees Blog #1: New Woodworking Blog

416 days ago by WoodForTheTrees | 3 comments »

Hello Fellow Woodworkers! Please allow me to introduce myself! My name is Lee and I am a woodworker. It has been three years since I first felt the obsession take hold and it gets stronger every day. The force is so strong in this one that I am now one year into a two year long woodworking course in Malmö, Sweden. The blog idea originally started out as somewhere for me to showcase my school projects. Wait, hang on! It’s actually a result of my school deciding to have an exhibiti...
