Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #20: Final Top Prep and Tool Tray Assembly

533 days ago by Mauricio | 42 comments »

Ok folks we have some momentum going here and have made some real progress lately. We’re getting close to the end. So the idea is, flatten the top, glue and bolt on the tool tray, then plane to tray to be coplanar with the top. First I chamfer the dog holes, I do this again after flattening. I figure I want to avoid spelching when planning the top by chamfering them beforehand. I’m not ashamed to say I used a routah (Norm accent) Patched a couple of holes from when this top wa...

1664 days ago by jockmike2 | 41 comments »

Ouch! That Smarts, I mean it still Smarts!!!! Even though I had surgery on Monday, my fingers still hurts like helk. Surgery was successful, they had a hard time waking me up, I have sleep apnea, so they were shaking me and hollering at me to wake up every 5 minutes. So I was in Post Op a little longer than normal but thats OK. I eventually got home and had some coffee and I was good to go. Today I get to see the Dr’s handywork, I have not seen my hand since my wife changed the dressing...

A really tough client this time!

2025 days ago by Lee A. Jesberger | 40 comments »

Well I think I met my match! My current wife, ( I”m considering trading her in), always says I never build anything for her, or as she would say US. (yeah right). A while back our projection screen television committed suicide. So we bought a flat screen model that hangs on the wall. Of course all the “stuff” that used to sit on top of the previous T.V. cabinet was demoted to sitting on the floor. Thus, the need for a cabinet to sit below the new unit, and house the...

Watch Box #8: Finished

899 days ago by Andy | 40 comments »

Finally I got it done and shipped it off to the customer. He wont get it in his hands until next week, so I will post his impressions when I hear back. I hope its what he wants!!! TIP:Some of you may know about this but many will not. This is my secret to quickly fine sand the box prior to spraying lacquer. I hand sanded down to 220 and then I finish up with green nylon pads. These were bought at the local dollar store. Guess how much? Thats right, a whole dollar. You can buy similar pads ...

Fine Woodworking does ezee-feed review #2: Ezee-Feed Gone Wild?

2307 days ago by Lee A. Jesberger | 40 comments »

Hi everyone; Since a lot of LJ’s have been following the progress of my ezee-feed project, I wanted to share part of my day today. I hope no-one is put off by my posting this or thinks I’m bragging as I’m really in no position to brag, but it was a very special day for me. (I don’t have a lot of those since embarking on this project). I’ve had a number of orders waiting for the first batch of Ezee-Feed units to come out of the factory, since I stopped makin...

Uncharted Territory... My First Inlay & How I Did It

1326 days ago by Maveric777 | 39 comments »

Well, I been hanging around here at Lumber Jocks for going on a year now. I have learned so much from so many, and can honestly say I owe a lot of what I know today to the sharing of knowledge here. So after attempting my latest “Exploration” into the wild world of woodworking I figured this would be a good a time as any for me to pass along a little blog on how I did my “Dreaded Inlays” ..... Long story short, I was hit up by a coworker asking me if I could build h...
