A LumberJock offered to me a most wonderful gift. Some time in his shop.

07-31-2008 01:09 AM by Karson | 16 comments »

No it was not an offer of free wood. A posting on one of my blogs last night was a offer of most immense proportions. The offer was to allow me to use his shop and his time to work on a project for my wife. Here was his offer I immediately responded yes. The LumberJock was none other than our respected Lee Jesberger I mean here was a LumberJock that built 36 kitchens for one customer. Here was a LumberJock that built a $100,000 kitchen for another customer. He was allowing me to be h...

To Shopsmith or Not to Shopsmith

07-28-2008 09:57 PM by Brad | 32 comments »

So I’ve been debating with my father in law about weather or not he should sell his Shopsmith setup invest in building a new shop using standard stand alone tools and machines. He’s about to retire and is kicking the idea around of either selling it or dropping another $1K into upgrading to all new Shopsmith stuff. Personally I’ve never used the SS but I sincerely doubt I’d be a fan. Not being able to move from machine to machine would bug the hell outta me and bein...

A Thomas the Tank Engine table #1: from to design to execution

07-17-2008 03:08 PM by Mark Shymanski | 1 comment »

My first ‘commission’ :-) My son is really into Thomas the Tank Engines (we even drove out to Winnipeg to spend a day with Thomas last month). He has a plethora of track and trucks and engines scattered all over the play area in the basement. He has been scouring the brochures about these toys and has decided he wants a table for all the track etc. Jenn wants him to have a table to contain the chaos somewhat, so voila my first order. Step one was to decide what to build, ...

Commisions #7: pull out trash box #2

07-14-2008 08:37 PM by teenagewoodworker | 16 comments »

hey everyone, over the last couple of days i have been able to get a lot done in terms of milling up the lumber and gluing up panels. i chose sycamore for the trash box because it is a hard wood as opposed to the pine that i was going to use before. there was a sale at the lumberyard on sycamore and it was less per bf than a select 1 board of pine. so the purchase made sense. first i got my lumber and let it sit for awhile and then milled it up. the first picture is of a rough board and ...

Tattoo Table #2: bloody hard work

07-14-2008 06:38 AM by Boon | 4 comments »

After getting the exact wood that i wanted i started cutting the pieces down. I choose a table from a woodworking book to copy and modify. Im using 2.5×3x13 inch african mahogany legs and will cut the ends to be flush with the 3/4 hondura mahogany. the idea is from a tile top coffee table but instead of tile, i have oak panels i will lay inside and then the tattoo shop owners will draw all over it and then ill cover it with bar top epoxy. if this post has a few errors its because its ...

What to do with mistakes?

07-14-2008 05:29 AM by Benomatic | 10 comments »

I’ve been working on a small hanging shelf that is suppose to be testing out my new table saw: in reality it is my table saw testing me out. I made the mistake of cutting my dados with a wobble blade instead of waiting to buy an actual set of Freud dado blades- but at the time it seemed like I could get away with it. Its b/c these dados turned out so bad that I went out and bought the right kind of blade for the job I was doing. Why- WHY! So my mistake is now having dados which re...

My New Old Table Saw

07-12-2008 04:27 PM by EEngineer | 6 comments »

I have been woodworking for a while now. For years I used an old 8” craftsman saw. You can see a photo of it under my shop photos. I put a lot of wood through this saw and it always just worked – sometimes with a lot of effort. The fence system was always painful. I adjusted and fussed and played with it and it was never quite right. If you look closely at the picture, you can see the circular marks where I always clamped the far end of the fence with a C-clamp to keep it from...

Album Art #2

07-08-2008 05:47 AM by pat | 3 comments »

So far in this series I have finished two of the hopefully ten woodburned album covers. I take any ideas and use most of them. My next project will be a Dragonforce one and then an ACDC one. Hopefully I’ll be able to do more but I’m in a band and The Teenagewoodworker and I haven’t totally figured out when Wood Riffs will air or what we are gonna do. We might do some sort of guitar case Denny said he was gonna make me but anyway. I’ m open to any comments anyone has. ...
