Well hello everyone. We have moved into our new home, and living alone at last. I have my own garage, where I have made me a desk where I can wood burn more pictures, I have done a few more and will postthem in a few days. I have not started back smoking yet, and it is still hard. The last one I had was on May 6, 2009, and still going. ok I’ll let you all go and will keep in touch more often. Your LJ friend, Jim

Design Concepts #1: Custom Stationary Tool Cabinet

11-19-2009 11:44 PM by Unskilled | 0 comments »

I was tempted for a long time to create a tool cabinet like I’ve seen in many books and magazines (Shopnotes’ ‘Heirloom Toolbox’ comes to mind), but wasn’t prepares for such a daunting task immediately since I am a new woodworker. I then decided that I really like my Snap-On knockoff tool cabinet, so I have considered an alternate design to hold a very specific set of tools. So specific in fact, that I plan on french-fitting every tool in every drawer aside fro...

Another LJ get together in Michigan

11-17-2009 07:57 PM by jockmike2 | 14 comments »

As it were. SteveMI. Stopped by to say hi today much to my surprise and pleasure. We talked like old friends for 2 hours before he had to hit the road. He had stopped back at Raven Farm to do some more shopping, without me, of course. He promised next time to include me. We had a great time and he got to see my messy shop first hand. Will I take the messy shop record? Who knows. We did talk about another Michigan get together maybe in January or Febuary. What do the rest of you Michiganians t...

First Box #1: Planning

11-16-2009 10:55 PM by Bret | 2 comments »

I’m getting ready to build a box for my wife, based in no small part on several designs I’ve seen here and incorporating elements of many of them. I’m at the planning stage, trying to figure out how to best use the lumber available to me for this project. I’ve got some walnut, a good piece (36” x 6” – 3/4) of curly maple and another (48” x 3 7/8” – 3/4) of Tigre Caspi. Plus a ton of walnut and oak. I’d like to feature the...

Grain Matching Corners on a Box #1: How Many Can You do?

11-12-2009 04:11 AM by scrappy | 11 comments »

I have been doing some thinking about Grain Matching corners. We all see boxes that the wood has been wraped around to match 3 corners, but the 4th is allways off. I think I have come up with a way to match all 4 sides. I will be making a box when I can get back in the shop.(hurt my shoulder and LOML won’t let me play until next week) Will take step by step pics and post in this series for everyone. Keep an eye open for updates. If anyone else has a process for this, feel free ...

Router Table #1: The Table Top

11-09-2009 05:06 PM by baniels | 11 comments »

I recently received a Bosch 1617EVSPK for my birthday. The first project for any new router owner is the router table. The design of my table is influenced heavily by the fence system I will be using. I just picked up the “17 Incra LS Super System. In order to allow for the full 17” range of the system while mounting the carriage fully on the table, I am making the top with the dimensions 27×43. The top is made from 2 sheets of 3/4” MDF glued together with Ti...

Yo whats up everybody this last week I have been trying out some new router bits and yesterday I started working on another book case for my dads new office. Out of all the shops this is the first one that has a real office in it next to the shop. So the book case im building is 28 in tall 20 in wide and 7 in deep. The sides are short enough that I can use dados to hold the shelves but I dont have a dado stack at my house so I used a standard tablesaw blade to make the dados. It took about 20...
