One of our fellow Jocks, Rikkor, posted a great thread on being from Minnesota. I ’did time’ in Nebraska – 11 years – so I can relate to most of it. However, I’ve been down in the glorious South for over 20 years now… I had to throw this out for us Atlanta/Georgia folks! You give directions starting with, “Go down Peachtree” and include the phrase, “When you see the Waffle House.” You only drink Coke or Diet Coke – dri...
Hey there LJ’s! I haven’t been very active here in a while, life seems to have gotten in the way of my shop time for several months now. However, I haven’t forgotten about this wonderful community and when I saw this great new product from DeWalt I KNEW I had to share it with all my Lumberjock friends. If any of you have this already, let us know how it works! :-) New Nail Gun, made by DeWALTIt can drive a 16-D nail through a 2 X 4 at 200 yards. This makes c...
Since Odie isn’t posting any more of his stuff, thought I might post another one- Yes, Charlie, it’s a jig. It is NOT a Christmas Tree ornament, a whirly jig for the Jolly Green Giant or scraps sitting on a jointer. Lew
Once in a lifetime we achieve a level of perfection so high we wonder if our very lives will ever be the same! That is what I imagine all of you will think the moment you see the new drill press table. Or, at the very least, you’ll have a good time laughing at me. This episode of Blue Collar Woodworking is all about the new drill press table, complete with downdraft dust collection, drawers for storage, and a micro-adjustable, X-Y sliding table. After that we show ou how to ma...
Okay, it’s Friday. Here we go…don’t try this at home!
That’s right it’s Leap Day, that anxiously awaited holiday which arrive but once each four years. With the formalities aside, it’s on to the shop inspection of Joe Hanson, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and Lumberjock. I’m sure some cleaning up was done it anticipation of our visit, but this shop is surgically clean. And organized like a tray of instruments. So much better than the usual “Where the heck did I lay that (insert name of missing tool)...

This week’s visit is to Blake's shop in Santa Cruz, CA. Blake is a part-time firefighter and student, who eventually wants to fight fire full-time. He has been a member for only twenty days, but burst on the LJ scene with his claw box challenge, and has been active in posting boxes, jigs and blog topics since signing on. He has a great shop with a host of good tools, some new and some handed down from his Father-In-Law. And he has posted the rehabilitation of a 1959 Dewalt Radial Ar...
This months tour is closer to home for MsDebbieP, allowing more time for her spring gardening plans (Yes! It’s won’t be that long till Spring).Our visit is to Ébénisterie Le Cheval de Bois in Montreal, the workshop of LJ Patrick Robinson. His LJ handle is lechevaldebois, and he is the sole proprietor of a cabinet shop, with an enviable workshop. Flooded with light fitting of an artist’s studio, Patrick has a tightly organized shop, with all the provisions for safety i...
This week is a continuation of a homage to the Lumberjocks California Highway 99 group (including Bill Brooks, Obi and WayneC). Wayne, as many know who follow his blog series has a passion for rehabilitating older tools with an emphasis on hand planes of all types. And he has awakened the desire in this woodworker (for one) to brush up my hand tool skills, as well as to give new life to tools that are looking for a new home. He also has a fair menagerie including birds, cats and (surprise) do...
