Wood working appears to have a number a number of separate and well defined steps. Each step requires its own tools and skill set. Step 1: Go into the woods, find a tree and cut it up into boards. Allow the boards to season for two or more years. I suspect many wood workers forgo this step and head directly to a lumber yard. I know of one headstone and probably there are more which reads “Killed by the fall of a tree”. I have bought some lumber from lumber yards, but now I te...
well this is the first blog post of my woodworking carreer. i bought this delta 36-650 contractor in pretty bad shape in march. tore it down cleaned as much rust as i could off oiled it up and painted the base. it came with the original crappy potmetal delta fence. after unloading the saw from my buddys truck i set the fence and it broke at the lockdown. so after a few more tool purchases and much web surfing i found the biesemeyer bc-50 fence system for a saw. heres a link to the site and pa...

Yo whats up everybody I am working on a project now and I found something out today that really surprised me if you put a polyurethane down over top of a oil based finish then it is a really rough surface if you sand it but if you take a rag soaked with mineral spirits then it removed that rough coat and it seals the wood up really good.

The main problem with having a ‘micro-workshop’ in the apartment, is that dust does not stay there, and it is the one thing that annoys my wife! (especially when I run my finger over the furniture, and asked if she has dusted today! :) ) So I thought it was about time I did something to ease the problem. I decided to use an Vac hose support devised by Jack Houweling you can see his video Here , it is ideal for the small workshop, where you haven’t got space for dedicate...
Firstly, I would like to re-start with the project by giving a huge thanks to mr MacB! http://lumberjocks.com/MacB and also the community here in LJ, but Mr MacB gets the main credit here. I don’t know if I can give out his name, so let’s call him Mr HeartofGold. Can you believe it, here I was stumped like you wouldn’t believe with my double blind corner and here comes along a guy who doesn’t know anything about me and offers to help me with drawings. I’ll be ...
