Just this weekend I learned several new things about woodworking. It’s been a blessing for this old dog to learn new tricks. I don’t have anyone here to give me hands on lessons, so I’m counting on my new friends here at LJ. I bet you would like to know what I learned. Glad you asked, now laugh if you want, because I like making people smile. #1 I learned that my circular saw doesn’t make 90 degree cuts, because it was off by about 10 degrees. I figured that of I...

Woodworking For Therapy #2: WOW! Fast results!

12-12-2013 01:09 PM by Steve Kreins | 17 comments »

A week ago I had to take a nap every afternoon and spent much of my day sitting on my butt reading, watching TV and surfing the net. Zero energy had become my new normal. Oh, I had a legitimate excuse, ”Well, I have cancer. What do you expect?” Then my wife bought me a miter saw and suggested woodworking. Wow! I never would have thought this would have a such a fast positive effect on my energy and mental well being! I joined LJ, got some great advice right away, and some very enc...

Starting the Journey #1: Crossing the Line

12-05-2013 10:27 PM by Tommy Evans | 5 comments »

I might have crossed a line today. I had picked up a Kunz #80 scraper for $7.50 and a Sargent 409 for $12 at an auction a couple of weeks ago. There was a real nice Stanley #5 but it sold for $65 and I do have one of those. I tried out the scraper yesterday after learning which was the front. Turns out I’m a puller, not a pusher. All it would do is make a tiny pile of sawdust from the left end of the blade. Figured today would be a good time to learn setting up the #80, so...

I posted a picture of a Craftsman Style Frame i made and i thought if anyone was interested, i have a two part video series of how i did it. The main jointery is the use of a half lap. It’s a simple and yet strong joint. I decided to show how to make it using both power tools and hand tools. Hope you enjoy it.chad stanton

Cope & Stick

Since I did a video how to fit inset doors, I thought maybe I should take a step backwards and show how to make a simple cope and stick cabinet door. Hope you enjoy the video, especially the ending.:-)

Isn’t it nice to have a friend visit? And it is even better to have a visit from one of the most talented from Lumber jocks! We (actually I do a lot of watching) have been making Momma happy with some new cabinets to store medical supplies for our son that is bed-ridden. My family life has improved due to his generosity. We do a lot of visiting and have several neighbors over to enjoy his company too. The neighborhood is finding him just as much a part of their family as we have.Two yea...
