The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #31: Charles Neil + Bill Pentz + Stumpy Nubs = One great episode!

12-20-2012 at 02:06 PM by StumpyNubs | 29 comments »

This week Charles Neil visits the Stumpy Nubs Workshop to help make me smarter; with the help of Bill Pentz we begin our three episode dust collection series with a big ol’ wooden cyclone; and I talk hand plane physics with the Japanese. Plus a review of the Wixey digital angle gauge, tips on doing segmented glue-ups, and why my abs don’t look like Tommy Mac’s… that and a whole lot of fun on this episode of Blue Collar Woodworking! After you watch this one, visit St...

Random Thoughts and Ideas #5: Things You'll Never Hear a Woodworker Say

12-19-2012 at 06:34 AM by DamnYankee | 13 comments »

Yesterday evening at our annual woodworkers club dinner one of the guys said something none of us thought we’d ever hear “I have too many clamps already” (the guy had won a clamp in the raffle). This got us thinking of those thing you’ll never hear (or should never hear) a woodworker say + My shop is too big / If only my shop were smaller!+ My chisels/planes/guages are too sharp+ I spend too much time in my shop+ My wife loves it when I buy tools.+ I have to much stock.+ I wish CL and e...

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #29: I had a dust collection breakthrough while eating tapioca from a hospital trash can.

12-01-2012 at 05:00 PM by StumpyNubs | 9 comments »

The other day I yawned and a thick cloud came out of my gaping mouth, floated around my face for a moment and then was sucked into my nostrils as I inhaled my next breath. For a moment I assumed it was a cloud of pipe smoke, like my grandmother used to puff out in rings above her head to impress us kids on special occasions and weekdays. But since I don’t smoke, I knew this was something more serious. (Tired of reading? Listen to Stumpy read this for you below. Or read on like a stuc...

Around The Coffeepot Ramblings #48: Seriously Scientific Stuff

11-28-2012 at 06:13 PM by William | 10 comments »

I’ve been working on a table. Everything is done except for the clear finish. I’m using Minwax gloss polyurethane. During the summer months, I would apply a coat, roll it on a rollaround table thingy I have into the front room, and spend my time working on something else while that coat dries. Well, it is not the summer months, and I can’t do that. No, instead, I have to keep the drying project on my main work table and keep a fire going to keep it warm enough for the finish...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #30: I nearly lost my lips kissing my TWO beautiful new router tables!

11-28-2012 at 09:39 AM by StumpyNubs | 9 comments »

This is a router table/lift/fence combo that will terrify the the guys at Festool and Incra. As Stumpy completes the three episode router table series he unveils the completed setup- two router tables complete with micro-adjustable lifts, built in bit storage, dual dust collection, a fantastic sliding table and a fence that uses Incra’s innovative positioner technology without violating any patents! In the meantime you’ll see how to get a high quality router plate for about $10...

Around The Coffeepot Ramblings #47: Some Things Just Aint Right

11-26-2012 at 04:19 PM by William | 20 comments »

Some of you who read my ramblings know that I have been setting up my second shop build bandsaw to make curved cuts, giving me one for curves and one for resawing.The only thing I have been lacking is a blade. I have an extra resaw blade, but since noone locally carries a 105” blade, I had to order one for curved cuts because, as I found out, a resaw blade does not do this very well.So I ordered a quarter inch wide blade. After reading reviews, here and elsewhere, I settled on getting t...

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #28: How I survived Black Friday at Woodcraft: Stumpy vs. the Zombies...

11-25-2012 at 07:45 AM by StumpyNubs | 15 comments »

The biggest holiday of the year has just past. Bigger than Christmas, bigger than Rosh Hashanah, even bigger than Washington’s Birthday. It’s called Black Friday and for good reason. It’s the day the shopping gods are appeased by the sacrifice of virgin greenbacks. When America’s trailer parks empty and the Walmarts fill with herds of greedy consumers looking for a deal on something, anything that will satisfy their lust for stuff. I’ve seen a dozen overweight women brawl like ultimate ...

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #25: Be a mentor! Teach some kid about woodworking... and how to spit.

08-07-2012 at 04:26 PM by StumpyNubs | 16 comments »

I’ve been married for almost 16 years, an unbelievable accomplishment for a guy who picks his nose in public. I remember when I first announced I was getting married. Some said “To a girl?” others said “How old are you?” I was 18 years old, old enough to legally tie the not, but too young to toast with anything stronger than Mountain Dew at the reception. She was 19 and I was a lucky man. And I am still a lucky man, because I got in on the ground floor of marr...
