Audio Podcasting

2001 days ago by Handi75 | 5 comments »

I have spent a little time thinking about Video and Audio Podcasting. I am Slightly Shy in both aspects of Video and Audio. But I have been working on this shiness by overcoming it in Video and Audio Podcast. I have decided that, As long as I get my point across, others learn from my audio and video, then I am more satified with it then what I look like no matter how goofy or entertaining I may or may not be or even as boring as I may be, information, demonstrations and how-tos are a v...

Starbuck's Coffee Entertainment Center #3: After all this time...

2006 days ago by Kevin Wilson | 6 comments »

Well, we are finally done! The entertainment center is ready to be shipped. The piece features adjustable shelves, a false panel back to hide all wiring, and that funny looking little stand on top. The stand is for a center channel speaker for the surround sound system. I needed a way to cover the hole that was in the original top so I designed this stand to allow the center speaker to rotate left to right and adjust up or down to aim the sound as required. Hope you guys and gi...

The Non-Electric Chair #11: Breaking out the Beech (part 1)

2022 days ago by lethentymill | 2 comments »

The timber is still moist to the touch and heavy, probably about 28% moisture, but it will be easier to cut in this condition and will dry quickly with a smaller cross-section. It is time to rough-cut the components. You may remember that I have already selected and prepared pieces for the main members – the back legs. All this hand-work makes you think of efficiency in a way that you may never have thought of it before. If you have ever cycled around the countryside and taken a wrong t...

Mirrors from my Website blog #6: A Lesson in Business From an 11-year-old

2031 days ago by Texasgaloot | 8 comments »

I’m trying to keep it all in the family, and it seems to make sense, at least to a degree. You see, in an effort to take a part of my woodworking business to the internet, I decided to pick up a pen turning lathe, a bunch of kits, and some padauk and rosewood. Good start, then I could get a feel for it, and perhaps hone my business skills. I shared all this great thinking with my bride, who thought it was great thinking and was therefore intrigued by the whole idea. Little did I know… ...

Mirrors from my Website blog #4: As the stomach turns (over)

2031 days ago by Texasgaloot | 0 comments »

I should have posted this back in late October, but this gives me time for a little reflection, sort of a three-month checkup. I’m supposed to be all busted up, worried, angry, frustrated, and all five stages of grief all at once. About two weeks ago the stable owner of the stable company I was working for called a bunch of us together and told us that we could come in the next day and get our stuff, or we could take it with us as we left, along with our barely adequate severance packages...

2035 days ago by Martin Sojka | 0 comments »

LJ Woodworking Awards Winter 2009 entry period is now open and will close on January 31st in both categories: A Knot Like No Other – It’s creativity time! Don’t let that big old knot get you down – incorporate it into a project, highlighting it’s beauty or uniqueness. You can knock out the wood (if there is some) and use just the hole or keep the wood intact and include it in your design. It’s time to get knotty with your woodworking. Be sure to describe how t...

Shop Skills #3: Sharpening Card Scrapers - The Lost Scene...

2038 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 27 comments »

Forgive My Insensitivity… A public Thank You is in order before I go any further. I had some great support from two individuals that are a part of LumberJocks. I relied heavily on Dave Pruett for “on call” support to figure out how to edit / process / and post my video. I need to thank Marc Spagnuolo as well. I did not continually call him like Dave, but his advice and pointers were taken to heart and helped me out as well. As with my woodworking, my achievement...

Coat Center Project Progress #1: Shop Time Part 1

2038 days ago by RockDoggy | 0 comments »

I’ve begun the shop work on my coat center project, whose (rough) design can be found here in a Google Sketchup v7 file. The goal is to allow my short kids to be able to hang their coats themselves, and also have a place to manage their library books and hats & gloves. There is also a discussion of my progress here during my first shop session on the project. I was able to make a fair amount of progress in about four hours of time, which is unusually productive for me! Enjoy...
