Spacht Sawmill Open House (near Norristown PA) #1: Open House - Saturday Nov 3, 9AM-3PM

10-30-2018 01:07 AM by SteveL | 0 comments »

Just wanted to let fellow Lumberjocks in the Philadelphia PA area know that Spacht Sawmill will be having an open house this Saturday (Nov 3) from 9-3. Dave Spacht provides quality local hardwoods to local woodworkers, and unlike the larger mills, is as happy to help the hobbyist find 5 BF of cherry as to help a small shop or contractor that needs 100 BF. He has a wide selection of surfaced slabs an flitches if you like live-edge projects, too. On Saturday, he will be offering demonstr...

dice trays #1: Square tray and rectangular tray

10-27-2018 02:40 PM by TheTimberAlchemist | 4 comments »

Working on a a couple quality dice trays for those hardcore gamers out there. They still need a few more coats of Danish oil and a felt or fabric to line the interior base. Comments and suggestions welcome. Both have dice storage areas and personal dice trays. I have made some with felt but I like the faux suade texture and sound. What do you all think? At the moment I have orange and gray suade. I cant decide which one to put in which tray.

The amazing woodworking collection of Zhuhai, China

10-15-2018 09:46 PM by Elyasaf Shweka | 12 comments »

Try to imagine yourself, as a hobbyist woodworker, being invited to a private tour accompanied by an Chinese government representative, in what appears to be the biggest, most expensive and most amazing woodworking collection. how big? 20 thousand square meters, which is about 200,000 square feet, equivalent to the size of an Walmart superstore. also, this collection is private, and therefor closed to the public. we were the only visitors at this giant warehouse.I have so much to say about t...

I got the shower all trimmed out and the plumbing completed! Yet another step done in getting the bathroom done. A bit of fiddling about getting everything cut to size, but in the end it all comes together. I am loving the cedar, and I pass on a couple of tips in the process. View on YouTube

Life happenings #12: The bathroom disaster.

09-12-2018 11:36 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I was debating on weather I ought to put this in here, but there is a lot of working with wood in it, along with a lot of other things, so why not. A couple of weeks ago we had a fitting fail in our master bathroom. We had to pull everything out of the room to gain access to the leak. Well, my wife has been wanting to remodel the bathroom for the last 16 years, so while everything is out of it, why not? Other than it’s a ton of work and expense. I am posting the first 3 videos, d...

Shop stuff #134: The OTHER saw bench.

08-17-2018 07:11 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

I got a question on my second saw bench. The first one I built was the one from Billy’s Little Bench and I have used it on just about every project I have done after that. I have used it for other things too. The second one I built is of my own design to help out with some of my physical short comings. That, and it is always nice to have a second one for working long stock. Some folks just use some sort of prop at the other end of long stock, but this one serves in other areas too....

Shop stuff #133: Roubo build part 5

08-15-2018 11:27 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Reaching and recognising my skill limitations with hand tools, I resort to the tried and true. You have to know how to pick your battles sometimes. I thought I was beat, turns out I just needed a break to rethink the situation. Not everything turns out as hoped, but success is where you take it. View on YouTube
