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...

Anyone have this spare table saw part??? - 56 replies
I forgot to take a pic of my table saw but found the pic above online. I’m looking for the round handle on the side of the metal case that changes the angle of the blade or raises/lowers the blade (they are the same handle). The one on my table saw broke and I’m looking for a replacement. Ordering a new one from Craftsman is l...

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. ...

Hey guys, dont tell my fiance I’m letting you guys see these. As these are TOP SECRET. But seeing how none of you guys are invited to my wedding(unless you all want to come) I guess it wont ruin any surprises. These are the possible Save-The-Dates I have been working on.

Proper time to use Mineral Spirits...... - 11 replies
Hey guys, I am about to make some humidors for the guys in my wedding party, so thought I better step up my finishing game a little. Usually after sanding and before putting on a finish I just vacuum the dust off, and thats it. I typically dont create high end projects with amazing finishes, so its usually not that big of a deal. However...

S0, not woodworking related, but a good lesson though non the less. No matter how many times you do something, you only need to do it stupidly once (in & out of the workshop). We were at the cabin out on the lake having a nice family fun day on Sunday. My brother needed his beer open. So, like i’ve dont a million times before, I pu...

Hey guys. I’m trying to finish this little nightstand I built for my fiance for one of her birthday presents. She is not into fine woodworking and likes the “ikea” look – that is, no wood grain/looks like plastic. I made it out of clear aspen because I wanted to avoid knots and didnt want to spend that much money on it...

What could I build with this motor.....?... - 12 replies
hey guys. This is a blender motor. Someone threw the blender away because the pitcher was busted and so were the blades. The motor was still working just fine though so I swiped it.
