Workshop Ramblings #5: Life Happens and Emotions Get In the Way

05-31-2009 04:10 AM by brianinpa | 11 comments »

May has been a busy, busy month and no time was spent in the shop. Two days ago our youngest son graduated from high school. His graduation was the culmination of a senior year that included numerous band and choral events and concerts including local, county, district, regional, and State festivals. A graduation is a humbling event to watch as your youngest son walks across the stage and accepts his diploma. A lot of anxiety and awe were present during this event, but most of this was co...

An Article doing a disservice

05-10-2009 11:25 PM by jockmike2 | 21 comments »

I recently commented on an article written in Finewoodworking On-line concerning “Spalted Wood” written by Sara Robinson. “(copywrite; finewoodworking magazine on-line may, 2009). She basically said that spalted wood was not harmful to humans. If you were turning it or if it was just laying around in your shop or house. I agree that it isn’t harmful if lying around. The dust however, I’ve had personal experience with a couple years ago with an allergic reaction t...

Customer Service - has this ever happened to you?

03-19-2009 08:52 PM by PurpLev | 8 comments »

I’ve actually heard other’s speak of similar experience, but as I’ve never had it first hand, I had always spoke in favor of the stores, and tried to bring a second side to each story. This time – I was on an unfamiliar side of the story… maybe this has happened to you? I’m in the market for a new table saw, I had sold mine (maybe a bit prematurely, as I am without one for the time being – although with not too much time to be had in the shop, ...

Chompin' at the bit

02-23-2009 08:09 PM by SteveKorz | 13 comments »

Will Spring EVER get here? I feel like a kid in school waiting for summer break. I want some shop time so badly, that I’m chomping at the bit every day. My tools are calling me, but the shop is too cold to do anything constructive in it. I can fire up the woodburner, but that just takes the chill off the air. Everything else is still cold. I walked out the other day, and some of my table tops on the planer, jointer and bandsaw had a light coat of rust on them. I almost had a high...

It was twenty-five years today, Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play

02-22-2009 09:55 PM by Douglas Bordner | 25 comments »

Well, perhaps not to the day…Thanks to Martin’s suggestion that we open accounts with Facebook I was able to re-establish contact with a dear friend from college. I haven’t had any contact with Brad for twenty years, during which time he spent time as a street musician and artist in New Orleans and New York, built custom stairs and balusters in North Carolina, and finally through dint of hard work and night school became a lawyer and an appeals court judge. You will note th...

Okay now it’s time to tackle this carving thing. First you will need an artistic vision. It took me a long time to come up with this design and it may be a little advanced for me but I’ll see if I can handle it. You will come up with a design that is suitable for your skill. Now lets establish what you will need for tools. You will need the following:A 4lb hammera shark sawvarious sized “SHARP” chisels, preferably polished stanleys such as theseframing hammerdrill...

My Space For Old People

Okay…dont shoot me yet…this was the funniest moment of my stressful week. Some of you may know I am a teacher…I teach Highschool and most of my students are juniors and seniors…ie as big as you can get…so some days and some moments can be kinda stressful…like a Friday afternoon when you are trying to have a serious discussion on the formation of trusts in the 1890’s…trust me…not too easy any time of the day but 6th period on a Friday...
