I'm about to give up (on my jointer)....... - 78 replies
so I bought this jointer off a guy on craigslist for only $200. Its a Sunhill. He said the majority of its life has been sitting in storage – and it showed. I had to get a lot of rust off of it – mostly surface rust, thankfully. Everything works great, except I can not get these knives out to be sharpened and realigned. I̵...

I took my nieces and nephews (and dog) out on some trails today. We hiked for about 2 hours. It was a great time, took some nice pictures, and spent some quality time with each other! The weather was perfect for Iowa—72 degrees! I should have taken more photos of this at different angles…but thought I’d share anyways. This w...

My Best Craigslist find Ever!! - 20 replies
So here’s the story: Guy on craigslist was moving in 2 days and had to get rid of some of his tools in storage. He had a Sunhill jointer that he had listed for $200. I bought it for $150.

Cutting board question - 8 replies
I bought a bamboo cutting board for our new condo (I know, I know….why didn’t I make one? Well school has been busy, so don’t have the time, nor the tools to make one to satisfactory…yet). So the directions say to coat it with oil (I’m using mineral oil) every 2 days for a month. This seems like overkill to me. Is ...

A Woodworking story (with pictures)! - 14 replies
Hey guys, For those of you who know me, you know that I dont have my own shop or tools. My neighbor has a workshop that he doesnt use very much anymore (at least not for woodworking). He now mostly concentrates on fixing up his old John Deere Tractor…. His tools are kind of old, but I’ll take anything to get my woodwor...

There’s nothing more frustrating than trying to add pictures to a project or blog ONE at a time! It takes forever. I wonder if anything is in the works to allow us to upload multiple pics at one time? And maybe while at it, changing the features of editing. If a person was allowed to add more than one pic and had a lot of pics uploaded...

Hey everyone. My 2nd cousin whom I’ve known my entire life (lived right next door to me growing up) just sent me an unexpected/amazing gift in the mail. The only way I can think to show my gratitude is to make him something really cool that I know he’ll love. He is big into movies…went to USC for a degree in film, and would ...

I cannot tell anyone else what to do and I would not attempt to try. However, let me advise my fellow LJ friends that I make it a point to never read or comment on any non-shop talk topic that appears to talk about talking about politics on Lumberjocks. I, effectively, boycott them. I encourage others to consider adopting the same policy. ...
