1972 Craftsman project, Opinions Welcome #5: Top, Bottom, Now I Need a Middle

1555 days ago by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Well, Good weather, good time to get finished up on some more. I mated the extension table to the saw top today. I used 3/8×4” lag screws on the mating edge itself. Added 3” deck screws through the angle iron and into the top. Very nice and flat with a good seam. OK, time to get the fence mocked up. I took the T part of the fence and threaded in some nylon set screws, these can be used to square the fence and make sure it is perpendicular also. I can see me ne...

what is a buddy to you

1561 days ago by grizzman | 28 comments »

Ive had an experience here at lumber jocks that has caused me to think on this topic today. early this morning i awoke ..it was around 4am…so i went to read my email and catch up with that. I had a private message sent to me, it was entitled apology. This of coarse caught my attention, so i opened it to read and by the time i was done i felt several emotions…one of them was ashamed, the reason being is as i have gone through my life, being a good friend or as we call them here a g...

Trying the Stanley No. 8

1572 days ago by michaelray | 2 comments »

Finally got a chance to use the Stanley No. 8 I posted a blog entry about a few days ago. Gotta say it’s pretty sweet. I’m sure there are others that may be able to tune it to a finer degree, but when I remember the frustration of the first time I ever tried to use a hand plane it feels really good. And what a huge difference sharpening makes!! Today I was using it to even out the glue ups on my new workbench legs. I took a couple of photos to share. From Sawdust From Sawdu...

Beefing up the jamb to my new shop door.

1574 days ago by 559dustdesigns | 0 comments »

Here is part two of my attempt at installing a new shop door. I again bought a cheap door and I am doing my best to reinforce the door and jamb from possibly being kicked in. I know this isn’t the most professional job, but I should only have about $150.00 into this project. The new door looks twice as good and is much more secure. In order to reinforce the jamb I first upgraded the strike plate which I showed in blog part 1. http://lumberjocks.com/559dustdesigns/blog/14664Today I f...

A Dream Come True

1575 days ago by Kristoffer | 27 comments »

Between my being a carpenter in today’s Michigan economy (lots of idle time) and my desire to learn more about finishing, I stopped by a local furniture refinishing/restoration shop a couple of weeks ago to see if I could pick up a non-paying apprenticeship just to pick up some knowledge and get some hands on experience. Of course I didn’t just walk in and say “are you guys looking for an apprentice?”. I asked if they were hiring and an employee told me “no”...

1581 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 22 comments »

We recently purchased a new washer, & dryer, & we didn’t want to spend $400 for the factory pedestals, so I’m making my own. They should cost us about $75 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~This is the factory made pedestal~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The front load machines are kind of low without a pedestal. It makes it kind of tough on the back muscles.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~...

Shaker Table - Woodworkers Fighting Cancer #3: Shaker, rattle, I'm on a roll

1581 days ago by Kerry Drake | 0 comments »

Got to spend quite a bit of time the shop this weekend and made a bit a progress on both of the pending projects. The Woodworkers Fighting Cancer Table Build Over the weekend I managed to get the aprons for the table cut, and the tennons made. Following the advise of The Wood Whisperer I custome fit each tennon to its respective mortise. Did a dry assembly, and finally got the carcass of the table glued up (in two stages). I will have to do a little “evening” w...

My Build along With Charles Neil Update

1587 days ago by a1Jim | 10 comments »

Hey Friends! It’s been a little while since I told you about Charles Neil inviting me to build this project along with him and about him sending me the material to build his newest of “Mastering Woodworking” subscription webcast, where he’s building or rather “we” will be building a lowboy. It started last week and another installment is coming this Thursday. It started with the making of the cabriole legs, and as usual, Charles makes it a lot easier th...

First Handcut Dovetails - PFW

1588 days ago by jcontract | 10 comments »

A good friend (and fellow Lumberjock member JTASH) spent a fantastic weekend at the Philadelphia Furniture Workshop in a handcut dovetails class. Now, JTASH has had some experience to this point in assembling actual projects with handcut dovetail joints. Me? I did a bunch of practice in sawing ‘to the line’ in preparation for the class, and even tried a crude attempt at assembling a test dovetail. The results were miserable and I would not post. Here is my conclusion after taki...
