Japanese Inspired Picture Frame Greene&Greene / Shou Sugi Ban.

01-15-2018 10:10 PM by Gbluee | 1 comment »

I worked for 22 years in the steel manufacturing sector. 11 of those years were for a trailer manufacturing company. When I left I asked them for a picture file they had of the whole crew of one of the biggest project I was involved in while working there.I decided to make a Greene&Greene mixed with Shou Sugi Ban for the finish.I also made a video of the build and it is on my You Tube Channel. I’ll leave a link to it below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFcQnPI5OqM&t=27s

Router table upgrade

01-03-2018 01:35 AM by Al Breit | 2 comments »

I just took my Kreg router table enclosed the router motor for better dust collection and added drawers for storage of router bits. I bent up an aluminum box to enclose the router with a 4” dust port. Added some extra holes for locking the spindle and a brass bar for locking the spindle height after adjustments. For the brass bar I cut a slot just big enough to allow the bar to fit through and a simple heavy duty rubber band to keep the lock leaver up right.

Large variety of exotic hardwoods and wood working tools. Free for my fellow LJocks

12-27-2017 05:46 AM by kiara583 | 19 comments »

Helped a friend move from large house with fully equipped woodworking shop to a smaller home. The overwhelming task of packing a 3500 sq ft house plus shop was difficult. Ran out of storage room so everything else was to be thrown out. Thought it would be a shame to throw it away so I spent a week hoping someone would appreciate this treasure. Will post more pictures. Turning tools, large dust collector, drill press, saws etcs. Could sell but would rather share. I only have time invested ...

Fixing a knot hole that got sucked up in the planer with a christmas tree

12-06-2017 05:50 PM by BenhamDesign | 2 comments »

Watch it on YouTube or read about it below I am working on another barn door for a client, and this door has created a few challenges for me. The client really loves the look of the gray weathered wood and wanted it on both sides of the door. The only problem is that most barn wood is only gray on one side. The other side that faces the inside of the barn is brown because it never sees the weather.So I decided to create barn wood veneer so I could veneer both sides of the door using th...

Shop stuff #110: Bosch 1250 DEVS sander: Real time test

11-30-2017 09:00 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

This week I am checking out the Bosch 1250 DEVS sander/polisher. I am calling it the sander for people who don’t like sanding.

I don’t have the wiring in my shop done, so I couldn’t hook it up to a shop vac to see how the dust collection works. It would be nice if it had a bag for those situations. View on YouTube
