Got a call from Woodcraft. They can’t take my order yet. Told to call back in 6 weeks. Woodcraft stated that SS is currently building inventory so they can ship adequate numbers once the date hits for distribution. Some of the information I got from Woodcraft differed from the SSp website so I called Sawstop. They were very informative and helpful. SS expects to ship at the end of May, first of June. The base price of around $1500 is for the base model, stamped steel wings, s...
I’ve been blogging since 2004, running an anonymous blog on my own little patch of electronic real estate on this world wide web. So when I started getting interested in woodworking, it made sense to me to chronicle my ups and downs on my own website/blog. Thus Adventures in Woodworking was born. And so I did what most good bloggers do when first starting out: I visited other blogs. That’s a good way to get your name and website out there and to make friends along the way. I ha...
Here comes another nice upgrade that will make your blogging on LumberJocks even more enjoyable. Each of you is now going to have blog that can be proudly presented across the Internet. Old blog pages were quite messy… they were just paging across whole blog entries. And if the blog entries were longer it was real pain to browse through them. New blogs feature nicely organized and visually much more appealing blog home page that prominently shows the latest entry. And just below the ...
Topographical Tree Study and Giving Kudos #4: "Obstreperous to Traditions of Workin' Wood" ---by RusticWoodArt
Obstreperous to Traditions of Workin’ Wood ....it is in the course of my daily meds, those inner pictures of imagination’s roaring meditation, that i am lost within the stillness of your soul, where finding the spirit in the tree speaks much of who i am…. —-tread lightly upon the heart of those who have no-taste, for poetic ‘verbal flowers’ that bring forth fruits of pleasure, in the hands of prophetic prophets drinking from wells of inspiration, givi...
Glen Huey has just wrapped up our Spring Thorsen Table Challenge in great blog article. He even revealed some background information about their judging process. Don’t forget to post some comments there if you like the article ;) Once again, congratulations to Popular Woodworking and the entire LumberJocks community!
Wood Stories of a Forgotten Time ....and as i was gazing into your wooden whispery depth, i found that i became as one translated to an-other epoch, where time had slowed down to that of one continual length, while all around there was the hearing of seeing one called enoch…. —-come walk my way and i shall be a story for you to tell, tis not this sound you hear the wind brushing past your leaves, and who is there to shake your branch if not by golden fire brewed spell, till ...
Nothing like getting it done at the last minute… This was a new thing for me since I’ve always just shot still photos. I learned a lot and scratched my head a lot too. Since I did it with a small handheld camera rather than an actual video camera, I learned about editing to make one movie. The video snippets themselves are not heavily edited except for transitions so the speaking audio is raw. See if you can keep count the “umm…” comments. I did add some music as...
And I thought there were only few bloggers in the woodworking community… Thank you for proving me wrong, fellow LumberJocks! YES, LumberJocks are the best woodworking bloggers online. And it seems like reaching 1.000 blog entries is just the beginning since many of you are already testing the waters with the videos.. how cool. Sharing and learning are two cornerstones of this community and that’s what blogging is all about. So keep posting and reading ;) I’ve decided t...
