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 ...

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

05-20-2013 09:13 AM 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...

To Paint or Not to Paint? - Intarsia Woodworking

03-01-2013 02:41 PM by Chris Mobley | 8 comments »

To paint or not to paint? This is the question. I have recently come across several debates on the topic of painting or staining intarsia work to achieve the different colors in a piece. I have even asked a group of my peers how they felt about the topic and I have gained some great knowledge. There is absolutely something to be said about using natural wood and natural wood grains to create a piece. In fact, in most cases this is my favorite way of doing my woodworking projects. In the...

Hand Tool Woodworking #1: Chisel, Saw and Plane my gut away

01-19-2013 12:23 AM by John | 2 comments »

A side benefit to spending my weekends in the garage building my Roubo-ish workbench with mostly hand tools is that I’m losing weight! Bucking my usual winter trend. I wrote about it in my new blog here Excerpt: ”It’s not just the physical exertion and the sweat though, it’s about not going to the fridge (or pantry, or cellar, or that stash of Hershey Kisses in the toolbox). Woodworking, more-so with handtools, is a continual series of mental challenges that put me into a “zone...

Full blog available here: http://mogden92.blogspot.com/ Welcome to my blog. This is new for me as it is for you. Allow me to briefly cover the goals of this blog. First and foremost, it is a way for me to keep you updated on my life, primarily woodworking. Woodworking is one of the biggest aspects of my life and something I never get tired of talking about or doing. However if there are other out-of-the-ordinary events that I am taking part in aside from woodwork, you may see a lit...
