My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #188: Three New Videos!

I accomplished quite a bit yesterday. Sometimes, when I am working on the office part of the business (correspondence, paperwork, etc.) it seems that I am treading water. I know my blogs aren’t as exciting to you all when I talk of the mundane parts of the operation of my business, but it is essential and necessary part of my job that helps me to expand and grow. I had some promising payoff yesterday that may be a very positive things for me. I almost don’t want to even mentio...

Wheelchair Woodworking #9: Right hand man Gordon part two

12-04-2010 04:06 PM by Jamie Speirs | 10 comments »

We finally get things moving and get a Draper swivel head variable speed lathes. Were all the rage years ago. It immediately had a problem with it’s capacitor.

I get a snooty reply telling me that a replacement was being sent and the other lathe was my responsibility until it was collected at their convenience. Now I don’t know about you all, but that typ...

Well, I been hanging around here at Lumber Jocks for going on a year now. I have learned so much from so many, and can honestly say I owe a lot of what I know today to the sharing of knowledge here. So after attempting my latest “Exploration” into the wild world of woodworking I figured this would be a good a time as any for me to pass along a little blog on how I did my “Dreaded Inlays” ..... Long story short, I was hit up by a coworker asking me if I could build h...

The Problem…If you want quality wood inlay …where will you get it? What designs will you get? How much will you pay for it?The Solution…We use our woodworking skills and make our own wood inlay in the shop. (We will make our own picture frame moulding too!) As you seen in previous postings we have been busy creating bandings of shop made wood inlay. There are a variety of wood inlay designs now available for our use at this time. So now we are in the process of creating p...

Gordon is my right hand man, I thought that I would tell you a bit about how he has changed my life.Gordon and I were introduced to each other by his brother in law fifteen years ago. I was in hospital with his BIL and he thought that we would get on. Gordon is also disabled and has many similar interests. We both like Counrty & western music along with the 60’s & 70’s music we grew up with. We both went gun slinging, It is the UK so we fire blanks. Will we ever grow up? I hope not.Go...
