Stand Up Jewelry Box #1: Project Planning

01-01-2018 03:09 AM by cowboyup3371 | 2 comments »

I have never written a blog before so if this is incorrect please tell me what I should do instead; however, my intent is to document the build of my most ambitious project ever. After building the two music boxes for my daughters, I asked the wife about making one for her sister, my sister-in-law. She replied it would be a good idea but that the sister-in-law really wants a jewelry box and that it might be nicer to incorporate the two. That conversation than began an effort by the wif...

Large variety of exotic hardwoods and wood working tools. Free for my fellow LJocks

12-27-2017 05:46 AM by kiara583 | 20 comments »

Helped a friend move from large house with fully equipped woodworking shop to a smaller home. The overwhelming task of packing a 3500 sq ft house plus shop was difficult. Ran out of storage room so everything else was to be thrown out. Thought it would be a shame to throw it away so I spent a week hoping someone would appreciate this treasure. Will post more pictures. Turning tools, large dust collector, drill press, saws etcs. Could sell but would rather share. I only have time invested ...

Fastest Easiest ways to break down pallets

12-21-2017 11:06 PM by Dimensions | 0 comments »

I, as well as many of you, I’m sure at some Point have used pallets to make a project. I’ve researched many ways of being the most efficient at doing this and i want to share the TWO best ways I’ve found to get the job done in the least amount of time. And also discuss whether or not it’s actually worth the time to put forth the energy to break pallets down for their lumber. https://youtu.be/QCP966Y05kM https://youtu.be/iFIpo1OEskI

IMPORTANT MESSAGE- THE PASSING OF MY FATHER, GLENN

11-07-2017 08:29 AM by holsworthwoodworks | 8 comments »

Good evening everyone! After several weeks of tremendous pain, I, Jennifer Holsworth (Kendrick) and my husband Jacob, have just now gained the strength to let everyone know that my father, Glenn Holsworth, had suddenly and tragically passed away on September 14th, 2017. Since we’ve been dealing with this terrible time on our own (without support from any family members, as it has always been my father, Glenn, myself, my husband and my son since forever) it has been very hard to cl...

Underway again...finally #6: College Football Day freebie haul

11-04-2017 06:48 PM by JohnTM | 3 comments »

Today being college football day and the area experiencing record setting heat for November as well as early morning fog making humidity uncharacteristically uncomfortable outside between 7-and-11 this morning, I don’t plan to do any work on the workbench today. Instead, I took a ride out to my “favorite”/go-to free pallet place and picked up some goodies – even made 2 runs as the Prius can only hold so much.I got plywood! 3 sheets somewhere between 3’x6’ a...

09-05-2017 04:27 PM by PoohBaah | 6 comments »

Three years ago my wife and I were gifted an acre of land to build a home upon. Included in this acre was this barn. It is a good sized barn at 40’ x 50’ with a hay loft upstairs that is massive and it already has a concrete floor on most of it. Now it has been a hot topic with in the family of what we should do with this barn. My wife’s grandmother hates it for one reason or another and feels it needs torn down. I on the other hand see all the potential within and ju...
