I have had so many positive comments and feedback on the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin. Thank you for all of them. Many LumberJocks asked for instructions on how they are made- so here goes. I am a fan of “Cook Book” style instructions so if I miss any details, please let me know and I will try to flesh them out. I thought it best to start with the jigs I used to prepare the turning blanks. Please note that I always over engineer everything and hardly ever see the obvious or the easy...
I am just getting ready to start my first “big” project on (with a little help from my dad and uncle). My wife has wanted a king size bed for a while, so I thought that I would make one. I found a good set plans, and have already purchased my rough sawn cherry. I’m just starting out and am limited on my tools, thats where Dad and my uncle come in, as they have most every thing that I might need to borrow for a while. I’m going to use my uncle’s planer and jointer...
Well lumberjocks I just had to share my good fortune / blessing (whatever term you prefer) with ya’ll. While I’m going to school I’m working for the Plant Services dept of the university in the carpentry dept. It’s pretty much the perfect job for me and i use it as my stress relief from school work. the carpentry dept is the most called on dept when things go wrong cause we can fix anything, right? well needless to say we get around campus quite a bit and the other...
Hi Everyone, just an update to apologize to those projects and entries I’ve missed (of course I don’t think I could keep up anymore anyway…geeez 5,500 members!). I have been busy with the time I’ve had working on the new basement shop. After moving in the first order of business was to refinish an old…very old coffee table we had our electronics on in the old house and replaced it here so we could use it as a coffee table again. I don’t really consider i...

I have a friend who owns a sawmill/lumber business, and I stopped by to pick this stuff up from him (yesterday) with absolutely nothing in mind. Only possibilities of what could possibly be one day. But you might have a part in what I build with some of it. If you have any good suggestions for me. I’ve got a while before I’m recovered from my hand injury (see my other blog entry), so since I won’t be using the machines anytime REAL soon, I need to occupy my mind with i...
Hello Lumberjocks, I have started 2 projects prior to becoming a member. I haven’t got to far. So, I would like to share their progress with the forum. I have a few projects under my belt, but I consider myself a beginner. So, please, bare with me, the techniques, and the progress. The projects are an out-feed table and a dual purpose extension table for my Delta 10” contractor table saw. The extension table with also serve double duty as a router table. It will replac...
Where can you buy 1000 (full size) sheets of (nice, waterproof) sandpaper for $1.00? Those were the first things to go; I managed to grab 2 boxes in the frenzy, one box of 150 grit, one of 280… Need a sheet? let me know! At 8:00 Saturday morning, Grizzly Industrial’s annual tent sale in Muncy PA opened their doors. I thought I would check this thing out, and actually got there 15 minutes early thinking I would take a look around before the crowds showed up at 10:00 or so…...
Two weeks ago August 17th 2008, after three years new into wood working I graduated to my first injury! No matter how careful you are,using all safety tools, jigs, features that you can master up, an injury can occur. I know now from experience, so does my skil xshop table saw with the new ryobi 60 tooth blade, and my right hand middle finger——whats left of it! Now I’m unable to design, create, show off any wood working, nor finish a repeated customers almost done 6 piece o...
The router table that I use is attached to my table saw. It sits on an angle iron support attached to my Incra TSII fence system (Upgraded to LS). To the right of the table surface. The top surface is two layers of mdf glued and screwed together, with Formica on top, bottom and 4 sides. The surface is 40” X 36. But since it is very heavy and especially with the 3HP router hanging in the middle with a Version 1 of the Jessem Router Lift, it sages. The table always sagged, s...
