Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #13: Wednesday Workshop: Gary CN"s Man Cave with a side trip to the comics.

10-03-2007 10:36 PM by Douglas Bordner | 20 comments »

It’s a visit to Gary CN's workshop, another of Deb’s northern US neighbors in Michigan. Gary is a fairly new member who invited us to tour his great home workshop. We are just a bit like vampires of lore, we need to be invited in before we can tour.This tip of the hat to Gizmodyne, WayneC, Bob Babcock, Bob2, Thos Angle et. al. John's Lumberjocks Comics are great. Better close the door before you visit or your spouse will wonder what in the Sam Hill you are doing. Trust me on th...

Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #12: Wednesday Special: With Dusty down at "This Old Crack House."

09-26-2007 07:22 AM by Douglas Bordner | 10 comments »

This week is an homage to Dusty and his venerable blog “This Old Crack House.” I actually heard of it before I was aware of the existence of Lumberjocks. The name slays me every time, but aside from the subtle Norm reference, this house was exactly what the name implies. A blight on the neighborhood and an eyesore.I asked Dusty if he could give me a paragraph to describe his motivation behind the project and the blog, and here is what he had to say: ”Honestly I would have to...

Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #11: Wednesday Special — Tribute Tour of Karson's Shop

09-19-2007 08:59 AM by Douglas Bordner | 14 comments »

This week it’s a repeat visit to Karson's shop. You may remember that Debbie visited Karson's long ago in the early forum version of the tour, exhibiting her mountain goat-like scaling abilities while inspecting Karson’s incredible collection of lumber. This tour is a recognition of Karson’s contributions to Lumberjocks. Yes, Karson was one of the pioneer members of LJs, with nearly 500 days of membership logged. Here he is at the beginning with our founder and several of...

MsDebbieP's Company Tours #5: OMS Tool Company

08-16-2007 08:18 PM by MsDebbieP | 16 comments »

From Marine Surveying to inventing a woodworking tool: why of course, what else would one do? This week, I had the pleasure of speaking with Jim Lindsay, President of OMS Tool Company and inventor of the DowelMax. The HistoryI asked Jim how the transition to inventing took place and he shared a bit of history with me. In 1995, he was ten years away from retirement and not really looking forward to it. Then, one day as he was working in his shop, he had the idea for the soon-to-be “Do...

Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #5: Tuesdays with Mot

08-07-2007 07:25 AM by Douglas Bordner | 10 comments »

This week it’s a return to Mot’s shop. Sure we visited Mot in the early days, before things got more organized. But that was a social call, and this is, after all the more serious matter of an inspection. MsDebbieP likes the ambient dust filtration, the tight organization and the lighting. I was excited by the Cat5 cabling and shopcam. For a small shop, there are all the necessary tools and some very high-tech toys. Mot has been experimenting with a lathe instruction ser...

Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #3: Tuesdays With Bob

07-24-2007 10:23 AM by Douglas Bordner | 11 comments »

This week we visit the shop and garden of Bob Babcock, the gentleman tree-farmer and Lumberjock of Carver, Mass. Deb is checking the posts of Bob’s Lyptus and cedar gate. Say, look at that new pen there. I think it looks so natural with the clipboard. We start outside, because friends, that piece of Carver, Massachusetts is Bob’s workshop. Tons of garden projects, excellent landscaping with his carpentered focal points on all sides. Did Bob help pick the summer challenge? I...

Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #2: Touring Tuesdays First Edition

07-17-2007 09:39 AM by Douglas Bordner | 20 comments »

We cross the pond to Broadstone, Dorset, UK, and the shop of Phillip Edwards. Deb is again heartened by the presence of a fire-extinguisher, great organization and good lighting. I am completely agog in the presence of Phil’s collection of wooden-bodied and moulding planes designed and built with his own hands (in addition to the one received from the hands of Krenov). Phil is no stranger to Photoshop himself, and has a justly famous website:http://www.philsville.co.uk/ The cognoscen...

First “Official” Meeting of the Central Valley Woodworkers Club - UPDATE (Obi's Shop Photos)

06-10-2007 06:33 AM by WayneC | 19 comments »

Today I drove down and paid Obi a visit. I got to tour his shop and get caught up on his current projects. I got to see his Thorensen table and a number of other projects that were in progress. It was a great time. I had a request from David to take a lot of pictures and I know that a number of you have been bugging him for some pictures. He is currently building loft in his shop and is in the process of making floor joices. This is what can be seen sticking out of his shop door. ...
