LJ Mark recently sent me a note and noticed I’d been off line for a while and asked what I was working on. Well, after finishing up my Pembroke table in November, I began a long-delayed tall case clock project. It actually began about twenty years when I was very taken with a Bartley Newport Clock they were offering as a kit, but being stubborn, I wanted to make it myself. So I ordered all the parts (movement, face, pendulum, weights) from Hermle, intending to build the same clock. ...
I’m sorry for the repost, I don’t know why my camera made all the pictures with blue shades yesterday.A link to the finished project: Incompatibility Thank you for looking!
I’ve drawn many plans… to many projects… These projects have included everything from programming micro controllers, engineering helpful technology for around the house and designing furniture for kids. The problem is… When it comes to woodworking I was always so nervous about it not being perfect that I never made the first cut. My wife gave me a budget of $500 to get some tools and materials to get started! I have a basic Ryobi kit with an impact drill, drill, ...

So today I had an hour to kill so I went up to my newest favorite store in XXXXwood, MA. It’s a junk store pretty much, they buy out estates and sell off the house contents, pretty damn cheaply I might add.

So I picked up a 25’ extension cord, a Stanley framing square (even though I probably have 6 of them at $0.50 cents I just had to have it...
There has been a long dry spell. I’ve been busy with the holidays and work. So over the last two weeks I’ve been getting some time to get back to the project. Things were going well. I was sanding down to the depth gauge holes. I had a problem when I checked the curve against the profile guide. So I made a frame and bolted a dial indicator to it so I can accurately measure the thickness. I found that I am too thin in the transition from the highest area to the slope down...

I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.
