The Masters Slave #2: Plan & Design

10-06-2014 08:12 PM by Obed | 1 comment »

Not being the most creative and obviously skilled I have taken up a huge project that I am hoping will make things functional and smooth for every project to come. I recently acquired a Dewalt planer DW 733 and a DW 745 for 350.00 in great condition from a close friend. My hope and plan is to do right by him and use them until they die or I die. The goal a large “L” shaped work station that will house a table saw area, compound miter station, planing section, router station and ...

Building My Work Shop #5: The First Rule of Assembling a Project

11-01-2010 10:10 AM by Crushgroovin | 4 comments »

Caleb is only 8 but he has caught on quick to the woodworking. If you ask him what you need to build a woodshop he will say #1 Buy more Clamps #2 Buy more Clamps #3 if you think you have enough clamps you probably need to buy more clamps! So I have a few clamps, obviously no where near as many as I might need. Before I started re designing my shop I stores my clamps on and around a exterior door that isn’t used. Now they are stored where ever there is space. Obviously this isn...

BALL IN A BOX #2: The Plan

09-22-2011 04:48 AM by BertFlores58 | 4 comments »

Normal to each project to have a plan, written or only in the mind, working ahead is knowing what is next. Things available: The resources that are available. The essentials are: RouterRouter Jig – I will use the straight guide, compass and roller attachments… I have to make the curving jig if the compass attachment will not suffice.Routerbits… Got 1/8” dia x 1/2” (1/4 drive) straight bit – could be used for cutting the curve.Reamer bit 1/2 drive ...

Hello fellow LJ’s I just wanted to write a short message and see if I could get some ideas for some small beginner projects to work on and also post on here to get some constructive criticism to help me learn better techniques and also become better at what im really interested in trying to accomplish. Now for the scraps I got recently, I went to a local wood craft place where they make custom built ins such as cabinets, ent. centers, etc.. The gentleman I spoke with was very h...

Five years later, Workshop Remodel. Going from pretty to functional #1: Demolition

01-15-2014 09:41 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 9 comments »

At least five years ago I cleaned out an old garrison garage at the family home, took out a center wall and made a 25×25 ft shop. It looked great. Really nice. Everything in it’s place, drafting table, bulletin board, Dry erase marker board. All my power tools on one side where the dust collector was and an assembly area on the other side. I made a ‘new fangled bench’ which to this day is a nice bench. The original shop form back then can be seen at my workshop page..Th...

"Wo kann ich Holz finden!?" or "Where can I find wood!?"

08-25-2011 05:02 PM by Ryan | 6 comments »

I’ve been desperate for anywhere to find wood, or Holz. I try and find simple wood and I can’t find any! I’m getting desperate! This is how low I’ve sunk. I currently was in the PX looking for some things for the kitchen, and I found aromatic cedar hangs. In my desperation, like Gollum, I snatched several up and clutched them to my chest as though someone was going to steal them from me. I feel like an addict, trying to find a fix.. HELP ME GET MY FIX!!! :D

My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #12: Growth, Learning how to sell, and my First Business Photoshoot!

07-19-2013 03:26 PM by Ethan Harris | 7 comments »

Hello All, Been awhile, and I really want to keep up with my blogs here on lumberjocks so here goes another. Spud (or I) has (or “have” if you assume I) been buying a lot of new tools to expand my business line and so far its been more spending money than making, but that’s the short term plan anyhow… I think. Other than expanding my (or Spud’s) tools and products its seems like I have been getting a crash course in sales 101. What makes my product diffe...

So you want to go pro #1: For now I'm gathering my thoughts

01-05-2008 06:07 AM by odie | 6 comments »

OK boys and girls or OK girls and boys This is my first attempt at a “blog”. I don’t even understand what it is. To start with, it is my first priority to be FUNNY. At my age, if you ask a woman or a man what is the most important thing in a marriage they will say a sense of humor. Those of you 40+ out there know what I mean. So you want to start a business. This hopefully will be a series of do’s and don’ts of starting your own woodworking (((or what ever ((f...
