I just wanna tank everyone on lumberjocks who has commented on my pics and has given me advice I won’t b on lj’s for a while cause I broke my arms and a toe
One of these days I plan on using electrolysis to remove the rust on my modest antique tool collection. However, I don’t own a battery charger and see no need to purchase one, so I decided to use the power supply out of an obsolete personal computer. This is my story. 1. I ran an ad on Freecycle for an old computer. Within several hours I get a hit from a fellow with a late 90’s Dell Dimension desktop computer. 2. Removed the power supply and after a lot of head scratch...
Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #1: Introduction - Sign Up and Objective
Hi, Everybody! My name is Sheila Landry, although many of you may know me as ‘Scrollgirl’. I’ve had that nickname for over fifteen years now and chose it because I LOVE SCROLL SAWING! I work as a contributing editor for Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine and I also have my own pattern business called Sheila Landry Designs where I sell my original scroll saw and painting patterns. I was asked by MsDebbie if I would like to host an online scroll saw class here on...
In this clip Randy Child shows us how he mixes Urea Resin Glue to get the correct consistency. This step is in preparation for gluing up the rockers.
Tray Table Tutorial #2: My Brother's Tray Table - measured drawings and instructions for construction
We left off at a point where it would be a good idea to now do a dry-fit of the top to the apron. Dry-fit the top to the apron. Before going further, now is a good time to dry-fit the slant top to the apron so that you can get the exact location of the dado which stores the metal stand when the desktop is closed. With the metal stand flat against the back of the top, place the top on the right side of the apron, allowing a 1/2” overhang on front, left, and back. Carefully mark where t...
Tray Table Tutorial #1: My Brother's Tray Table - measured drawings and instructions for construction
I was asked if I would share plans for the tray table I made for my brother. It actually took more time attempting to write these plans than it did to complete the tray table. I did not take any construction photos so I have used SketchUp scenes to try to illustrate the steps. Disclaimer: This is the plan which I made on SketchUp before making the tray. ( I didn’t follow it exactly since I found that I had already surfaced some stock to 5/8” and used it instead of 1/2” thickness.) It s...
I glued up a cutting board with a table saw that was not properly aligned. As a result I had a glue up that was relatively flat on one side but way out of whack on the other side. The flat side was a huge pain to flatten with my little Ryobi belt sander even with 40 Grit belts. The rough side needed about 1/8” of wood that needed to be removed over most of the board. This is no joke with hard maple. It would have taken hours. My lumber dealer referred me to a cabinet shop that...
In this video Randy Child discusses the use of the rasp in shaping wood and demonstrates its use. My apologies in advance for the noise. I filmed this in a production environment of which I had no control. That said, you can still hear the content which I believe is relevant. Enjoy! Tim PS – Check out my website for more videos and woodworking information.
The following is a collection of things I/you/we have heard/said/experienced numerous times… either from our elders or ourselves… a.) “Damn…” b.) “Do you know that you’re bleeding?” c.) “This? It’s a paper towel and electrical tape.” (You’ve done it!)d.) “I thought doors were three feet wide! Damn it!” e.) “Fu…” (I’m not going to finish that one, here. Suffice it to say that it is...
So this is my first try at a blog, and I figured I’d start with something that is simple and probably had already been done a number of times before. Regardless, I will probably learn more about blog making than you will about pallets. Pallet HarvestingFirst you have to find a pallet that is worth harvesting, craigslist is a good place to look, but I have had much more luck by finding a company in an industrial complex that receives a fair amount of freight. Target places that have h...
