Wishes come true, Thanks to Kiefer

04-30-2014 09:23 AM by Stevie1 | 1 comment »

I have always wanted to make Finger/Box Joints on the table saw, But as it is only a little saw, I am unable to fit a Dado Set, or Multiple Blades. Along came LumberJocks. I was reading through the Projects everyone has posted, “Fantastic work” when if came across ADJUSTEBLE INDEX BOX JOINT JIG by Kiefer. . Anyway I knew this was the jig to allow me to make my long wanted box Joints. I contacted Kiefer and he very kindly sent me some extra ...

Help out a new woodworker

03-08-2014 01:27 AM by mptap | 10 comments »

Hello to all lumberjocks! As the title says, I am pretty new to woodworking. I have a lot of questions about techniques, tools, and ideas for projects. It seems as one question gets answered another one peaks my interest. Right now I am interested in getting and learning how to use hand tools for joinery, planing, and the like. I don’t have a planer or really any good hand tools yet (I borrow my grandfather’s tools, but even his are limited in the hand tool department). My firs...

questions from a beginner

10-14-2013 10:45 AM by samdavis224 | 0 comments »

Hi all! I am a young 16 year old guy that is starting to be interested in wood turning and also antler turning. currently i have shaped multiple antlers into different knives, but am looking for a good protective coating. I do not want to be able to use it as an everyday knife, but a ceremonial knife. I want to be able to have it be sharp but don’t want to harm the bone itself. Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Workshop #1: Benchtop for new workbench

07-24-2013 06:09 PM by Jason W. Fudge | 2 comments »

I decided that I wanted another workbench. I already have the wood workbench from HF that I picked up on sale for about 100 bucks a few years ago. That was a great purchase. But I have outgrown it and now need a larger one. Given that I’m in the military and will probably be moving in a few years I have been thinking about how I wanted to make the base. I came up with a simple, yet effective solution. Use my heavy duty storage racks. Later I might add cabinets, but for now, just t...

Hello all,Lately I have been thinking about making a cedar log cabin sauna for my cabin in the woods. I was thinking I could some how rig it up with a small wood stove. Anyone have any comments or suggestions to me about this? I am planning on squaring the logs so for it. My cabin is a scribe fit log cabin but I would rather not do that much work just for this sauna. Thanks!

New-er woodworker and need finishing help

04-03-2013 03:27 PM by WoodyMark | 11 comments »

Ok, so I know that finishing is an art all in itself. Finishing takes a lot of time and patience for beginners, but it seems that once you get it, you got it! I am struggling pretty badly with a Cherry Top entryway table that I am making my wife. The table started one Saturday as a ‘nothing special’ just needing a place to put a lamp type of project. My wife bought some curvy legs (the type with balls at the bottom of the feet) at Lowes one day because they were on clearanc...

Can any of you brilliant, engineering types help a dumb, little old lady with TS V-belt questions?

03-20-2013 06:24 PM by lightweightladylefty | 22 comments »

I recently replaced the 5-HP motor on my Grizzly right-tilt table saw. (To be honest, my husband did because this weakling couldn’t lift 65 pounds.) I figured it was a good idea to replace the belts, too, so I ordered a set from Grizzly along with the motor. I’ve now gotten 3 sets of belts from Grizzly and none of them match my old, original belts. My original belts were FM-26. The first belts sent were 3V-250 which were the same configuration but too short. When I called b...

Woodworking for $$

09-01-2012 03:26 AM by Woz | 13 comments »

All, I love working in my shop-when it suits me & I am working on a project that I want to work on, regardless if it is for me, Mama, the House or a Friend. I have come to ABSOLUTELY despise working for $$, a project with a deadline or a project for a customer-even if they say “oh just whenever you get around to it”. I have decided after my last project for a customer (who couldn’t pay upon delivery-even after they upped the “delivery” date on me by 6 weeks e...
