Widdershins Joinery Blog #1: I Believe Introductions Are In Order! :D

09-09-2014 02:48 PM by WiddershinsJoinery | 2 comments »

My name is Robin Gosse, living in a (very) small town on the northern tip of the island-portion of the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. We are WAY out in the Atlantic ocean, farther East than New England region of the USA, well above 50 degrees of latitude. My wife and I recently bought a house with a huge garage, and I’ve begun the adventure of renovating it into a proper woodworking studio. Please visit my blog page and join in my adventure of home ownership, woodwor...

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

06-13-2014 06:54 PM 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)

04-18-2014 05:44 AM 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)

04-04-2014 04:30 AM 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

03-21-2014 01:14 AM 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

03-14-2014 04:39 PM 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...

11-15-2013 10:12 AM 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

11-14-2013 10:48 PM 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

08-18-2013 12:30 AM 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 ...
