All American

06-10-2011 08:49 PM by Transition | 5 comments »

I have decide to turn only reclaimed, American woods. I’m doing this for several reasons:1) There are trees that we pass, and largely ignore, everyday. Turning this wood gives me a chance to reintroduce myself and others to to this amazing world. I love the outdoors, and I go hiking, exploring, and “wood hunting” with my son quite often. I want to be able to point to a tree and tell him what it is. But as I’ve started trying to identify the species of wood that I&...

Framed Fossils #1: Trilobite Fossil in oak frame with bronze accents photo blog

06-09-2011 12:27 AM by Dan'um Style | 10 comments »

There is a man in my town that has a private museum. He has hundreds and hundreds of items, all in display cases with custom spot lighting … the whole nine yards. A for-real rich guy. Well anyway he hurt his back and is in a wheel chair, is getting old, downsizing etc. He put up an eBay auction for a few fossils and because he had such a new eBay number, no one bid on his objects much. I bought a couple pieces before he gave up selling on eBay.......Frame is white oak and is 16 inches a...

Took my other half to Woodcraft yesterday

06-07-2011 07:10 PM by crank49 | 6 comments »

Well, we had about an hour to kill before we went to dinner to celebrate our 40th anniversary. She had never been in a Woodcraft store before, so it seemed appropriate to me. After all, life is just a journey, new discoveries, etc. Then, after dinner I presented her with the keys to her new wood fence I have been building around the back yard for the last month. What? You think I’m a cheap skate? Hey, I gave her the keys to her new Ford Expedition last week. This was just the icing o...

Bargin Deals and Steals #1: Diablo Blades

06-07-2011 04:48 AM by Cornductor | 9 comments »

Today after work I had to run a honey do list at the big box store for charcoal. As I was browsing the isles looking and gawking at various tools, then the moment happened. On an end cap I saw a Fathers Day special on 7 1/4” 24 tth Diablo saw blades 2 for $10.00. No wait this can’t be happening this is way to good of a deal for such good blades. After the initial shock I remember reading a recent blog on the 7 1/4” blades on a table saw and thought what the hell why not. ...

Nifty laser use

06-06-2011 02:51 AM by swirlsandburls | 4 comments »

I am working on a commission project that required me to make a rather large hollow cylinder. It needed to be 9” in diameter with a 1/2” wall thickness, and about 11 inches long. The client wanted to use Jatoba, which I could only get in lumber, so I glued up an octagon to work from. That part as well as cutting the OD was simple, but hollowing out the interior was a challenge. I decided to set up my Jamieson deep hollowing rig, and then realized that I could also set ...

Scrollsaw Portraits in a NutShell #1: The Prep Work

06-04-2011 07:33 PM by KnotCurser | 17 comments »

I was asked by at least a dozen people over the last few months how I do my portraits. Particularly, how I get up to the point of actually putting blade to wood. In other words…… the Prep Work. I thought I would make Part 1 of my “Portrait Scrollsawing in a NutShell Blog” cover just that topic – getting everything ready to actually start sawing. The only “prep work” part I won’t cover in this section is designing the pattern itself – that will be at LEAST one, if not multiple future b...

Adjustable Height Rolling Outfeed Cabinet #1: Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

06-02-2011 08:53 AM by newTim | 3 comments »

But the past I am condemned to repeat is the creation of a new design that I have never done before, am not certain of the existence or availability of key materials and hardware, and possess the barest notion of what it is I want the thing to do. Welcome to my world. I knew I wanted a sturdy outfeed table atop a cabinet that would provide much needed storage in my small shop and would provide another work surface. If that were the extent of my desires I’d have whipped it out in n...

What the heck is it?

05-26-2011 06:55 AM by Steve Good | 16 comments »

This might be the strangest project I have ever built but I think I like it. I posted this over on my blog tonight and I thought a few of you Lumberjocks might get a kick out of it also. The idea is not original to me but I did come up with my own design. If you care to know what it is watch the video and find out.
