Got Me Something Cool In The Mail!

12-13-2010 12:49 AM by Maveric777 | 18 comments »

Well, I was out in the shop yesterday when my lovely bride walked in holding a package for me that was just delivered. Then I remembered all the harassing text messages I sent to my favorite coon ass Cozmo35 asking for a chisel mallet (I don’t know the technical name for it so that is what it was referred to as…lol). You see, he lucked up on a good deal on a lathe. Well, me being the good friend I am wanted to be sure he had some projects to keep him busy. After all…. isn...

If I had it to do all over again.....

11-23-2010 11:10 PM by NBeener | 29 comments »

I’m SO new to woodworking that nearly EVERY project has me back at the bottom of some learning curve or another. I rarely get to fall back on skills that I’ve learned well, used often, and perfected. And … when I leave glitches in my projects, making ME think I earned a grade of “B+” or “A-,” I always wonder …. What if I did that project again. Would I get an “A?” So …. I’m making my wife a box, based on the ...

A dove has arrived...

11-14-2010 05:44 PM by mafe | 12 comments »

A dove has arrived…Or at least the tool for a doves tail! Today I was so lucky that I found a little pack in my post box! I opened it with great excitement,and inside there was a beautiful little marking tool: A dovetail marker, of Tamboti, ratio 1:8, and it’s not even Christmas yet. The pack came from our wonderful and always positive Alba / Jamie.Thank you so much, I know you even had to do it twice, since the post had vanished first time. (So now it can be up...

A gift from a friend, old saws.

10-23-2010 06:28 PM by PaBull | 14 comments »

In my business I have a friend, who’s dad was an old woodworker. The man is getting older. So yesterday my friend came by and said: “Here this toolbox is yours. So i opened the toolbox, and at first view not very exiting. But after I pulled out the tray, I found the treasure. And I started to pull out the saw’s one by one. Some of the not so old, but some are some cool looking ones. I have my work cut out, restoring some of these.

A Keychain is Born ~ 8/30/10 ~ With Video

08-30-2010 10:29 AM by dustynewt | 9 comments »

I must apologize for my lack of interaction here on LumberJocks. I am on the night shift at the paper mill and my neighbors don’t dig the 2:30 am woodworking bit, so I have been limited to my keychain work and ya’ll have seen that. It is my night off and I remembered a couple requests a while back to do a blog on my keychain process. So, here ‘tis! I hope the video comes out right. I’ve been experimenting with my CoolPix. Short videos? I can do that! So I decided to...

A gift for Grandma. Well ... almost. #1: Completed, but not finished

08-15-2010 07:25 PM by NBeener | 14 comments »

My mother visited DJ and me, in April. She asked if I could build a gift box for her mother—my Gramaline. We went to the lumberyard where she and DJ picked out the woods they wanted me to use—Padauk and Maple—and a plan for the style of box they preferred. DJ preferred miniature finger joints. I ordered a new template for my P-C jig. It took a while to arrive. Then, early May came along and … something went wrong with my eyes. My Boston docs told me to sto...

I got a gift today also

08-06-2010 12:06 AM by Karson | 20 comments »

My good buddy Jockmike2 gave me a call on sunday. he was out of town and wanted me to post his entry in the contest on LJ. Unfortunately, I was in my car also and I was not able to git-r-dun. But then today I received a soggy package from the post office. It was a cardboard box wrapped up in plastic wrap. I opened it up and it was a double pack of Vernors Soda. You can’t find this stuff around here and Mike said it’s readily available where he live. So he sent me a...

Puzzles - A Gift Meant To Be Regifted - How To

05-11-2010 02:12 AM by DonW | 3 comments »

Several LJs have asked for a blog entry sharing how I made the mini-puzzles that I use to encourage “re-gifting”. They are really very easy to do for those comfortable with using a scroll saw. Here are the steps… 1. Select the subject of your puzzle. I use business card sized cards that are available at Christian bookstores. They are bright, colorful and have inspiring messages. However, you could do the same project with sports or non-sports trading cards, etc. They woul...

Gift Prototype - The USB Fob

04-05-2010 04:09 AM by WhiskeyWaters | 4 comments »

I’ve had a few friends/enemies/family get hitched recently – I’m working on an interesting gift for them. I remember my own wedding, and know that the pure number of pictures taken can be enormous…and why make a photo album that can’t hold them all? Well…mine can. And the front - My basic technique has been to sandwich the USB device between three layers of 1/4 in oak strips. As you can see, I’ve had some difficulty in making sure th...

My Tools #2: My Christmas present from mom finally arrived!

02-17-2010 05:22 AM by Gary Fixler | 11 comments »

It’s the JET – JSG-96CS: 6’’ x 48’’ Belt / 9’’ Disc Sander w/ Closed Stand, 3/4HP 1Ph, 115V. It arrived by pallet in two boxes: Right away the 3/4HP motor and belt seemed bigger than I’d imagined this past year or two (this has been on my wishlist for awhile now). I had even scaled up my mental image, but it was still bigger than I thought: The closed stand is a very thick sheet metal, and heavier than I expected. It was a...
