Tool Gloat - My First Jointer

09-01-2010 04:26 AM by NewPickeringWdWrkr | 3 comments »

Sunday, I saw a listing in Craigs List for a 6” jointer for $100. I thought why not take a look and sent a reply. I got a response back in short order stating that he had 2 others in line in front of me to take a look and if they fell through, he’d give me the next crack. I figured it was gone and I’d have to resume my patient vigil. Well, I was surprised and today I brought it home. It has new blades and a new drive belt. The bed and fench are free of rust but looks like...

Wood Gloat - The never ending generosity of an LJ

04-27-2010 07:51 AM by majeagle1 | 14 comments »

This weekend I had the wonderful opportunity to go visit Ira, “Rustfever”, in Central Calif and he bestowed upon me some pieces of the greatest selection of woods I have seen in a long time. After a tour of his fantastic shop, he proceeded to take me to several “pallets” of his collection of fine woods.After about 4 hours of “drooling” and acting like a “kid in a candy store” I selected the following: 8 boards of “Red Gum Eucalyptus...

Router Table Gloat!! - Bosch RA1181

04-26-2010 04:20 AM by Mark Whitsitt | 5 comments »

Going to have to write a review another time, but just wanted to gloat about the deal I made on the Bosch RA1181 benchtop router table at Home Depot I discovered that this item was being clearanced in my local store for $129 (regularly $179 – $190), plus I had (yet another) Harbor Freight 20% off any single item coupon, which HD honored (your mileage will vary…). So, I picked up a fairly nice starter table for $103 + tax. Plus, it’ll work great with my Bosch 1617EVSPK ...

Found/Given Wood #2: 55kg of scribbly gum

04-05-2010 03:09 PM by Broda | 3 comments »

Hey everyone,pretty good score this time (for me anyway) My dad and I were out looking for some turning wood this afternoon. We’d been looking for ages when I suggested we have a look up a track where we found THIS last time. Good suggestion…. this is what I took home- this one weighed about 15 kg (33 pounds) Saw for scale this one weighs about the same, but its a bit shorter the beast- this one’s under 2 ft but weighs 25kg (55 pounds) This was ...

A journey into the workshop. #47: Great score, but not what I went in for...

So my trip to Lowes today was originally intended to pick up a cedar 4×4, and potting soil for LOMLs flower pots, but instead I ended up with a lumber rack and about eight fence pickets… I know now would be time for me to explain… You see I want to build LOML a planter box from cedar, and I was planning on fence pickets, but they are usually over $3.00 per and not particularly clear etc… for Cedar pickets, so I was going to pick up a Cedar 4×4, resaw and plane i...

Got on line last night and found a Firewood seller in my area. According to the web site, they were supposed to be open.

Update to My - Preface to the Wood Gloat of the day

06-08-2009 12:35 AM by Karson | 38 comments »

A month and 1/2 ago I posted Preface to my Wood Gloat where I blogged about some maple wood that I got from a sawmill in Delaware. I showed these logs that I saw in the sawmill back in Feb 2007. I asked the sawmill owner to cut of those logs for me. He said no he was going to keep them. Well today I got a phone call from the sawmill owner. He stated that he has closed the mill down and was going to go back to working masonry. I think that the economy and the lack of getting l...
