The base for jointer keeps going this weekend. Worked in it only on sunday, and finnaly ended the woodworking part, remaing now just the finish and minor adjustments. Started by the enclosure. The dust drawer with exact dimension to accomplish a plastic dust port and 4” hose connector. Using 12mm MDF (about 1/2”). Removed the originally footer to made a minor changes. How these are just cosmetic items, I will added later justin gluing it in the base. This will give him a bet...

Well, just about a week or two after I finally got around to shooting a shop tour video, I decided to finally purchase a drum sander which forced me to rearrange the shop. Of course, since I knew that changes were coming, I also decided it was as good a time as any to really take a look at the shop and fix the nagging problems that I encounter here and there. So, here’s a short list of things that will be upgraded: 1. Dust Collection 2. Shop Layout 3. Lighting 4. Too...

I have posted 8 videos on YouTube thus far and have never introduced myself. I enjoy watching other woodworkers introduction and shop tour videos, so I thought I might as well do one and get it over with. I give a few facts about myself in my home page here on Lumberjocks, but I go into a little more depth in the video. Watch the video here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZIV_OyTaCo
A lot of you are probably used to seeing woodshops full of tools and sawdust. Some even have woodshops that the brothers Green would be jealous of. Well, I have neither. In my first blog in this series, I shared my opinions on table saws and told you which one I was purchasing. Today I will be talking about the space that will eventually become my woodshop. As you can see, it looks more like a garage than a woodshop but I’m going to change that over the course of the next few...
Just like many woodworkers out there, I am obsessed with my tools. They perform a function in my shop but they are more than just functional. They provide a sense of pride and aesthetic beauty that only my fellow woodworkers can understand. We spend countless hours mulling over specs. reviews, online videos, pricing, and countless other factors to find that perfect addition to the shop. When we find that perfect hand tool or piece of machinery, we obsess over fine tuning, adding accessori...
I am jumping into my woodworking career with both feet. Unfortunately, this is not cheap and I do not have any tools worth anything. Also, having a handicap, I am on a very limited income. So, what is a woodworker to do? Start small, build up tools one at a time, accumulate better tools as you go. This is the plan, however, I need to start somewhere and my income only pays the bills that I have. I have found a possible source for start up expenses. I just signed up for a Crowd Funding webs...
