TOE, the Trickle Outward Effect #1: TOE the Trickle Outward Effect

1172 days ago by Jacquelyn Smith | 3 comments »

On my walk this morning I paused to admire the Willamette River. It is wide and this morning it was quiet, peaceful and full. As always it was flowing past me, underneath my footbridge. The body split apart and came back together again with grace and ease. After admiring it’s awesome beauty I was reminded of my work and the feeling of running in place. On the surface the river looks so peaceful so laid back like nothing is really going on. It’s so full that rapids aren’t even showing whe...

Shop Skills #8: Improved Support With Roller Stands

1712 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 12 comments »

Like many woodworkers, you will find roller stands in my shop for extra material support. I do not like the single roller stands, I prefer the stands that provide support with 3 or 4 rollers. This type of roller stand provides a larger surface and better support. The particular set of roller stands that you see here is the Craftsman brand from Sears. They cost about $70 each several years ago. But I am still not satisfied with the performance of roller stands on their own. One of th...

Art for Life, Buying Handmade, The Economy Optimist, & a website called "buyhandmade.org"

1985 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 15 comments »

I’m sort of sad this week. It’s just frustrating to me, what is happening now. In the big sense, and the little Lumberjock sense. An artist and L-J’er that I greatly admire, Thomas Angle, can’t find anyone to buy his work, and he has shut down his business operation That sort of just stinks, and should be a huge red flag for any of the rest of us that try to sell our handmade work for a living. He can work leather, and combine it with wood like few have ever d...

Router Table #1: Design ideas, need some feedback

1990 days ago by PurpLev | 43 comments »

OK, so yeah – another blog about a router table, but since I’m going to make one , might as well document it while I go, maybe someone can benefit from this. I’ve had a Rockler router table top + plate + fence which I got when I bought my router (Bosch 2 1/4hp). It had the misfurtune of being on the floor when my basement was flooded a couple of years ago, so that top was ruined. I since have been planning to replace it with a shop-built version, and make a full enclosed ...
