A New Persective on my Business; A Hot Air Balloon Tour of the Kansas Flint Hills Tallgrass Prairie

07-31-2008 04:51 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 29 comments »

(I haven’t done this style of blogging for awhile. With so many new LJ’ers now on this website, I’ve figured most of us don’t want to see these long-winded-folksy style, non-woodworking, rambling, style blogs anymore. But, this is a story about “Hot Air”, so I’ll let a bunch out along with the photos.) This blog could easily be subtitled: ”Facing Your Fears with Hot Air.”Read on further to find out why. July 29th, 2008: I wa...

A visit with a LumberJock - Workshop of Charles Neil

03-21-2008 06:14 PM by Karson | 16 comments »

You might be a LumberJock if you visit the shop of a LumberJock and you fail to take any pictures. So Sorry. As I was leaving I said to my son-in-law. I didn’t take any picture and I think Charles was ready to kick us out. End of Story. Now the beginning. I sent Charles an e-mail a few months ago and told them that my son-in-law and daughter lived about 15 miles from him and sometime when I’m visiting them that I’d like to visit him. He replied make sure that you...

MsDebbieP's Company Tours #16: General

12-13-2007 06:26 PM by MsDebbieP | 18 comments »

Earlier this fall, I attended the Toronto Woodworking Machinery Expo (see blog) and one of the representatives that I had the pleasure of speaking with was Norman Framton, the Sales/Marketing rep from General. This week, I connected with Norman by phone and we talked further about the company and product lines. HistoryGeneral Manufacturing is in its 61st year of business and is based in Drummondville, Quebec. With a foundry just down the road, they are able to produce their Canadian-mad...

Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #19: Thursday Tour RAH's Workshop

11-15-2007 10:22 AM by Douglas Bordner | 15 comments »

This week’s tour is in Delhi, CA, just down Hwy 99 from WayneC and Bill Brooks. Lot of Californians on this tour. Could it have anything to do with the advancing winter in Canada (and Nebraska for that matter)? I expect more Midwesterners to step and volunteer for a tour!Ron is a roofing contractor who has annexed a 20×30 foot area of his 40×60 metal building for a wood shop. The rest of his building is reserved for his business as a roofing contractor. Here Deb takes note ...

Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #18: Wednesday Workshop: Blake's Workshop

11-07-2007 06:05 PM by Douglas Bordner | 10 comments »

This week’s visit is to Blake's shop in Santa Cruz, CA. Blake is a part-time firefighter and student, who eventually wants to fight fire full-time. He has been a member for only twenty days, but burst on the LJ scene with his claw box challenge, and has been active in posting boxes, jigs and blog topics since signing on. He has a great shop with a host of good tools, some new and some handed down from his Father-In-Law. And he has posted the rehabilitation of a 1959 Dewalt Radial Ar...

Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #17: Thursday Tour @ the shop of YorkshireStewart

11-01-2007 08:15 AM by Douglas Bordner | 22 comments »

Our inspection this week is to a another garage-based shop in Great Britain. We visited YorkshireStewart, whose facilities are “just a half mile or so from the rapidly eroding boulder clay cliffs of the East Yorkshire coast.” Here’s a map to identify the location of those of us that were daydreaming about shop class while we were in geography class. In this shot it’s apparent that there is no small measure of wonder being manufactured there. This is a wooden ...

Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #16: Wednesday Workshop: WayneC's shop

10-25-2007 12:31 AM by Douglas Bordner | 17 comments »

This week is a continuation of a homage to the Lumberjocks California Highway 99 group (including Bill Brooks, Obi and WayneC). Wayne, as many know who follow his blog series has a passion for rehabilitating older tools with an emphasis on hand planes of all types. And he has awakened the desire in this woodworker (for one) to brush up my hand tool skills, as well as to give new life to tools that are looking for a new home. He also has a fair menagerie including birds, cats and (surprise) do...

Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #15: Wednesday Workshop: Bob2's shop.

10-18-2007 06:00 AM by Douglas Bordner | 20 comments »

Bob2 has described his current shop digs as “A collection of tools at or near electrical outlets.” The space is in his business warehouse until he is able to pour concrete for a dedicated home shop. I feel instantly at home in this environment as there is a lot packed into a small space, and it’s none too organized. No sense burning brain cells on prettifying and organizing when the thrust to learn and create is where the true fire exists. As long as you know what pil...

Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #14: Wednesday Workshop: Bill's Workshop

10-10-2007 08:08 AM by Douglas Bordner | 7 comments »

We waited patiently, and here they are. The pictures of Bill’s shop have arrived and Debbie was quick to sign on for a trip to sunny California. We visited Bill's shop in Turlock, along the Lumberjock corridor that runs along California Highway 99 (from WayneC’s in Sacramento, down to Obi’s in Salida and then to Turlock). And she went right to work. We both liked the offcut storage by the saw and the anti-fatigue mats at the various workstations. Plus Bill has a gr...
