1766 days ago by RouterManiac | 6 comments »

Cutting Dado’s on the Router or Table saw? So your project calls for some precise dado’s to be cut. Some are Through dado’s and some are stop dado’s. Having never cut one before, which tool do you reach for? The thought process:Router:Never having done this before, you will have to thing about what you need. If you use the router, you already have one (assumption). A straight bit will do the trick for the cutting portion. What about a dado jig? How will you...

Handmade Portraits #4: Handmade Portraits: Birdhouseaccents

1771 days ago by Etsy | 6 comments »

(music by Two Dark Birds, animation by JuliaPott) It took Fred Jakubiec from Birdhouseaccents 25 years before he made building birdhouses his full-time job. It was well worth the wait. After 13 years as Area Supervisor at various fast food establishments, a stint at a steel mill and years of driving for Fed Ex, Fred decided working for other people just wasn’t fun anymore.He and his partner Lynn Patrick regularly took trips to Amish country to go thrifting and flea market shopping.

Cross Training

1777 days ago by Eric | 3 comments »

When going through marathon training (I ran three in 2001 and hope to run another in December of this year), one thing that you should always incorporate is cross-training. Typically one day a week, do something other than running to perhaps develop supporting muscle groups, or at least to give your body a little variety. While I’m not too sure how much it will “develop supporting muscle groups” for my woodworking, I have picked up a new hobby. Thanks to a birthday presen...

Dust Collection #1: Dust Collectors in a Small Workshop

1781 days ago by RouterManiac | 0 comments »

Dust Collectors in a Small Workshop If you are thinking about adding dust collection into your workshop, it’s always good to do a little planning in the beginning. If your shop is small, this is essential. Smaller spaces generally mean that you have to fight for space, or come up with some ingenious space saving idea. In can get old trying to squeeze every last square inch out of a work space without it being cluttered. My shop is fairly small since I had to downsize a bit to add room ...

One table or three

1797 days ago by dryhter | 8 comments »

I had a client who bought a High end coffee table.($2750.00), turned out to be to big for the room. She loved the table but it just would not fit in the room and there was nowhere else to put it(the house was already packed, down sized from a bigger house). She asked ” Could you cut it down somehow”? ” Some how” I said? “You know to make it smaller”. “Maybe” I said. I explained I could not make any Guarantees, but that I woul...

New Nail Gun By Dewalt

1805 days ago by Handi75 | 6 comments »

New Nail Gun by Dewalt – It can drive a 16-D nail through a 2 X 4 at 200 yards. This makes construction a breeze. You can sit in your lawn chair and build a fence. Just get the wife and kids to hold the fence boards in place while you sit back, relax with a cold beer, and when they have the board in the right place, just fire away. With the hundred round magazine, you can build the fence with a minimum of reloading. After a day of fence building with the new Dewalt Rapid fire nail gu...

About Me

1834 days ago by TheRecklessOne | 11 comments »

Hello Lumberjocks! My name is KC (said Casey, but short for Kansas City), and I’m super stoked to have finally signed up for site privileges. I’ve perused this site for some time now, and have recently begun to view Lumberjocks in tandem with my other forum that I’m a member of. I figure it’s only natural to be a member of both! I’m a small business owner of a custom carpentry company in the Tidewater area of Virginia, but as of late the economy finds me doing more handyman type...
