There are a few Lumber Jocks here in “The Great State of Florida” and over the 2012 Memorial Day Weekend, I decided to take a trip to meet Jeremy Greiner. So I jumped on the ol’ iron horse, and rode my Harley north west from Melbourne which is located on the east coast to Apopka. Jeremy’s got a sweet setup in his double car garage from which he makes all those wonder projects he post about. Plus he does it in style by the use of a “mini split” AC unit in the workshop. The Saturday ...
I was posting a project this morning and realize that I was at 1000 post in 1600 days. WOW! It doesn’t seem like I’ve been here a LJ’s that long. Along with that I have 261 projects here. It is great to be able to go back and remember the building experience because of the write-ups. I sometimes even refer back to one on other builds so I don’t have to reinvent the wheel. This is a great site with great people. I’ve leaned a lot from professionals to t...

WWND- What would Niki do? #1: Jigs and Fixtures. Creating something that makes work safer, easier, repeatable and on a budget.
I, like many here have been amazed at the posts that LJ member Niki has provided in the realm of jigs, fixtures and set-up tools. I decided to pay him a little homage in the title of this collection of shop fixtures and jigs. I finally got tired of knocking over my cyanoacrylic glues, only to later find some tool or other in a big amalgam.I have a bunch of left over hiker mattress pad scraps from making ring inserts for my jewelry boxes. The light bulb came on, and here is what I came up w...
Ok…I have been out of school 3 weeks now…have done a TON around the house (projects soon) on our landscaping make-over…but I noticed I am getting EVEN MORE addicted to you guys! During the school year I barely get a chance to check some of the new projects each day…and even then I feel like I am cheating my students or family because I should be doing something related to teaching or family with my time… But now I am 24/7 off the work clock and onto woodworki...
