Coffee Lounge Closed

The recent happenings in the forums made me think seriously about the future of LumberJocks. This website has been built on the foundation of woodworking projects and knowledge sharing instead of general chat site for those that just want to buddy around. I came to a conclusion that these two principal differences cannot coexist under one roof. I had to make this tough decision as soon as possible before it is too late. And I decided to go back to the roots of what made LumberJocks so spec...

Router Table #10: A Cold Front - Drawer Fronts that is

01-19-2010 01:26 AM by PurpLev | 7 comments »

day started with a snow blizzard mixed with slush. no fun at cleaning that up as it’s super heavy. but that also mean that it was above freezing temperatures. today I was able to glue up the drawer fronts. these are mostly maple, with some mahogany strips. the mahogany strips are there as a design feature that helps blend in the drawer pulls which will be installed next and will also be made of mahogany – hence the blend in. I added some 1/8” strips of mahogany and map...

Router Table #2: The Motor's In - Triton 3.25hp TRC001 1/2" Precision Router

12-15-2009 05:39 PM by PurpLev | 14 comments »

It really started a while back, I got hooked on the idea of a router lift for the table after seeing the Incra Router lift with the magnetic inserts. after that the obsession was fed by finding Woodpeckers’ router lifts with the quick release mechanism which allows for quick lift of the router to rough positioning, and for pulling it all the way up for over the table bit change. then came the Woodpeckers PRL-V2 (also rebranded by Incra with their magnetic inserts, and recently also r...

Site Updates

10-16-2009 06:02 PM by Martin Sojka | 33 comments »

Long time, no post… anyways I’d like to keep you updated about the latest updates on the site. Support and maintenance is taking more and more time because your activity grows leaps and bounds so these upgrades are not huge nor revolutionary. Anyways I’m sure that you’ll find them interesting because most of them were requested multiple times in the past. So here they are: New Events Calendar features a monthly view of all important LJ picnics and meetings. These ...

Short And Classy Personal Links

03-19-2009 02:07 PM by Martin Sojka | 17 comments »

This may appear to be a small 5 minute job, however this upgrade took me a number of hours…I hope you enjoy the shorter LJ links: Yes, all personal LJ links have been changed from lumberjocks.com/jocks/nickname to lumberjocks.com/nickname format. This is also reflected in your personal projects, blogs etc. links (ex: lumberjocks.com/nickname/blog). Old links will still work to ensure backwards compatibility. I’m off to update my email signatures now…

MAJOR NEWS: New Reviews Section!

01-13-2008 08:54 PM by Martin Sojka | 27 comments »

Woo hoo… it’s time to introduce another great new feature on our site. The idea of having separate LumberJocks section for posting reviews has been bouncing around in many discussions recently. I finally decided to turn it into reality this weekend. There was lots of brainstorming involved during recent weeks because I wanted to be sure that the system will automatically guide you when posting the review of the product that was already reviewed by other jock(s). This system ens...
