Blog Disabled

02-06-2010 06:08 PM by Handi75 | 9 comments »

Well everyone… I don’t know if this has ever happen to you or not… And of course this is the first time it’s happened to me… And I have no clue why. I’ve just tried logging into my Workshop Blog to Post some Articles from Finewoodworking.com about Spalting Wood, which I’ve tried lastnight as well, and it would not take my password. Of course this was on my iPhone cause I got lazy lol. So I’m sitting at my Table as we speak trying to ...

New Tool Frenzy

01-23-2010 08:29 AM by David Craig | 6 comments »

Kind of interesting how outside forces can affect your decisions on a more personal level. Obvious to everyone, we are in a bit of a tough economic time right now. I work in information technology and that is a field easily outsourced. Right now, I make ends meet and live a rather simple life. I work from home, make an ok wage, pay my child support, and make gradual improvements in the home. If something were to happen to my job, I have a few skills in other areas and could make ends meet, bu...

I am touched...:)

01-19-2010 10:04 PM by David Craig | 21 comments »

You can’t imagine my surprise when I went to my mailbox today and saw the beautiful, personalized, form letter from Handyman Club of America today, notifying me that I was nominated to join their club. I was told that I was being recognized for my outstanding work and that this was the equivalent of belonging to the woodworking hall of fame! And if I want to be a member for life, all I have to pay is a measly few hundred dollars and my membership would include a set of no name tools. Th...

Extremely Average #14: Gnashing Teeth

01-16-2010 01:52 AM by Ecocandle | 11 comments »

Today I drove across Martelle, to the office of post, where I again stared into a cubbyhole filled with emptiness. No DVDs and books for me, in the ‘Soup Nazi’ voice, ran through my head. After coming home, through rush hour traffic, I sat in my comfy green computer chair, defeated. I know from my days of working in the marketing department at GEICO that the travel time for a piece of mail, from anywhere city, in the continental U.S., to the hamlet of someplace, takes no longer than 6 ...

A blog about a blog

01-15-2010 08:56 PM by kennethw | 2 comments »

Hi folks. I’ve taken the plunge and started my own blog. It’s mostly about my process of learning, working with hand tools and coming up with creative solutions to get around not having a shop! I’ll definitely still be hanging out with you LumberJocks as much as possible, I just have my own sandbox to play in as well. Please check it out some time if you get a chance and have an interest. :) Thanks! http://roughwood.kennethwoodruff.com/

New Years Resolutions

12-26-2009 05:29 PM by David Craig | 5 comments »

Now that the initial Christmas season is winding down, I finally have a little room to breathe and I can think about setting some concrete goals for the next year. Oddly enough, I never fell into the whole New Year’s resolution ritual but I think now that I am reaching an age of maturity, I am starting to understand the importance of setting some goals for the next leg of the journey we call life. Sounds “philosophical” doesn’t it :) This last year I have worked on ...

OK If you look at the cut list from the first post those 2×12x12’ are sliced up into a bunch of 33” long chunks and ripped in half and then again into 5 1/4” (for slop) The Tenon is achieved by tacking a block of Plywood (mine is 2 1/2”) wide at the Ends of two of the inner boards in the stack your going to glue up. I then Set up a stop in my miter Guage and choped 2 1/2 Off the outboard pieces and glued and clamped them… This is the setup before glue...

This morning (May 1st, 2009) The Sawdust Chronicles 2009 Spring 30-Day Build Challenge (I’m trying to think of a longer name, so send me suggestions) began! With 43 actively interested contestants (23 Beginners, 15 Amateurs, and 1 Professional woodworker), 4 sponsors (Rockler, Woodcraft Magazine, Kreg Tools, General Finishes) over 250 emails, and about 150 hours already devoted to breathing life into the contest, it is now up to the contestants to determine how it all proceeds. Up...

Train Bed #4: Details

04-11-2009 02:34 PM by Chris Davis | 2 comments »

Today I worked on some of the smaller details. I built the smoke stack, cattle guard, the front lights housing, and a ladder. For the smoke stack I used a 8” drain pipe. This was left over from a previous job. I really liked the fitting that is molded to one end. It gave it a little detail without me having to add something up there. To attach it to the front, I cut like a half-lap style joint out of the pipe. I cut it using a circler caw. Since the top of the front of the bed was c...
