GI will take this opportunity to thank my dear friend David for a lovely lovely lovely Christmas gift. David has sent me a Ryobi jigsaw- to help me along in my woodworking struggles. This lovely newfangled device will replace? Or just push aside the VERY ANCIENT craftsman jigsaw that my sister found in the trash in Las Vegas and gave to me. So I am terribly excited and very grateful to my friend! Hugs and kisses to you David! Now I am going to pack up a little box to send to David t...

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...
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...
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 ...
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 ...
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. Got off work a little earlier then normal so went to see if I could aquire a couple of pieces for turning. Add says fresh cut and seasoned wood available. Also: cedar, juniper, mesquite, pine, oak, pecan, pear, ana apple woods available. They sell bundles from a full cord all the way down to “one fire size” bundles. Figured this would be a cheep way for me to...
This afternoon went up to the workshop and dressed the rest of the short boards of NGR .. 44 to be exact all 5’ long. Only took a few minutes. LOLHere be the pictures of the boards as they were dressed and stickered as requested by Bob and Blkcherry. Still have around 40 odd longer lengths [ 8’] to dress for the entertainment unit and the two stationary cupboards.. also two book cases.
