LJ Woodworking Awards - Winter 2010 #1: Announcement

12-04-2009 10:29 AM by Martin Sojka | 32 comments »

The LumberJocks Woodworking Awards Winter 2010 is just a month away. This year we are focusing on just one category. The goal is to highlight the creativity of all of our members (regardless of skill level) through the use of materials that are available to all woodworkers. And here it is: Yin Yang – the dark and the light. Where would one be without the other? Create a project that uses colour (dark and light wood, stains, etc.) to convey how contrasts work together to make the whole....

Lumberjocks New England - Unite! Sept 2009 #3: Update - the Date is near!

09-02-2009 04:01 AM by PurpLev | 16 comments »

As you all recall, We have been granted the use of the Lexington Woodworker’s Guild for our LJ Picnic Event. I still would like to present them with something in appreciation of the gesture – but am not sure what – any ideas? I would also like to thank Rockler for stepping up and sponsoring us with some goodies that will be raffled between the LJ attendees. Thank you Rockler! This really presents the same great customer service, and positive experience I’ve b...

My Tools #1: A very Robert Sorby birthday

08-22-2009 12:18 AM by Gary Fixler | 17 comments »

Everyone’s going to hate me for this, but I just fell – not literally – into a lot of new Robert Sorby turning tools. The 18th (3 days ago) was my 32 birthday (for you programmers, that’s 100000 in binary – I no longer fit in 5 bits!). Mom sent me a box of Rockler goodies from my wishlist. In typical (for my mom) fashion, she overdid the gift-giving. She’s always been very supportive of my endeavors. Thanks, mom! I’ll have to make her several nice thi...

random #17: I finally have a proper wood lathe!

05-12-2009 01:05 PM by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

Mom visited last week, and with some ideas of things she wanted me to build, we checked out Anderson Plywood (LA, CA) – she loves zebrawood :) – and my favorite place: Rockler (Torrance, CA). While at Rockler, she fell in love with some turned bottle stoppers made by Robert, who I think might be a manager there, and decided she wanted me to make a bunch for her and her friends, starting with a set of 3 for one friend in particular. They only had 2 chrome wine bottle stopper har...

The Sawdust Chronicles Spring 2009 30-Day Build Challenge #1: Pre-Contest Kickoff

04-01-2009 11:01 PM by SplinteredBoard | 0 comments »

The Sawdust Chronicles’ 30-Day Challenge is simply that – a challenge. We will be challenging you, the beginning woodworker, to complete a woodworking project within 30 days. We pick the project, you find or create the plans, you iron out the details, you complete the project, and you reap the rewards. The level of difficulty of the challenge should be self-scaled depending on your level of woodworking talent. A majority of the challenge is dependent upon the honor system. There ...

Wood IDs #9: Sealing up the mystery tree (probably California Bay Laurel)

03-29-2009 08:38 PM by Gary Fixler | 3 comments »

You folks helped me to ID this as probably a California Bay Laurel, blown down a pretty strong wind storm a week ago. I’m still going to research it, but for now, it needed to be sealed up against the checking that had already begun. I wanted some good pics of the cross sections before they get their coat of sealer. I have 2 gallons of Anchorseal in shipment now from the source, and I’m wondering if I should have gotten the 5gal bucket. Meanwhile, last week I picked up 2 quarts of...
