My Beginning Days #4: Grizzly Tent Sale #1

72 days ago by Kaa162 | 5 comments »

I went to the Grizzly tent sale this weekend in PA. It was quite the experience. First, I spoke to a rep on the phone who suggested that I get there about an hour ahead of time… Try 2-3 hours. By the time we go there, there were at least 200 people in front of us. By the time the tent sale opened, the line was SUPER long. When the clock struck 8am, you have never witnessed a line move as fast as this one. We were so far back and yet it took seconds ...

Help out a new woodworker

146 days ago by mptap | 10 comments »

Hello to all lumberjocks! As the title says, I am pretty new to woodworking. I have a lot of questions about techniques, tools, and ideas for projects. It seems as one question gets answered another one peaks my interest. Right now I am interested in getting and learning how to use hand tools for joinery, planing, and the like. I don’t have a planer or really any good hand tools yet (I borrow my grandfather’s tools, but even his are limited in the hand tool department). My firs...

My Beginning Days #1: Starting My Journey

232 days ago by Kaa162 | 3 comments »

So today I decided to start blogging about my journey. Not so that anyone would actually read it, but mostly as a way for me to look back and see where I started, assuming I get some place with the whole thing. If you read this, you should know a few things about me first… One, I am a school counselor by trade, so I have NO formal training in anything with my hands. What I know about the mechanics of things honestly could be put in a children’s book written and illustrated b...

Hello all LumberJocks! As promised in my Gloat to End all Gloats post, I’m starting a blog series dedicated to discovering, moving in, and setting up the dedicated shop we got as part of our recent home purchase. I plan to put several types of posts under this one series, which will range from discovering the new tools to setting up the shop and making it my own. I’d like to start by letting y’all know we closed on the house on Friday afternoon, so we have spent all weekend clean...

General #3: Changes

434 days ago by mcgriffith | 0 comments »

Lets see, where do I start? A lot has changed since I was last on here. I cannot remember the last time I was on here, and I have not looked. Since I last was on, we sold our home, moved to another one and in some ways I think it will be better for my wood working addiction. We sold our home in 5 days and closed on it at the end of November. We moved into my wife’s childhood home, we are doing a Rent to Own, and will eventually buy the place. We now have a 2552 sq ft house...

New Shop! #8: The dust collection.

683 days ago by Ryan Haasen | 8 comments »

Today I installed all of my dust collection ducts. As I mentioned in the previous blog, I was going to do PVC ducts, but with all of the talk of static explosions, I went with metal ducts from Lowes. It was about a 7 hours overall between laying it our on the floor first and then putting it in the framing. The ducts will be covered in drywall soon, so I made sure it was all together nicely. I ran all of these ducts 6” and I will reduce to 4” below the ceiling for the machines with...

It’s been a while since the last shop update, but I wanted to wait for a lot of progess before making this update. We have been working really hard every weekend to get thing done. So here are the main tasks we (my Dad, Brother and I) have completed since the last update: - The outside shell is finished- The asphalt was teared out from the heli-pad- Put all the plumbing into the ground for the drains, toilet, sinks, and shower.
