Hey guys, The switch on the jointer I use went bad. I know its the switch because one day (for no apparent reason) the switch just didnt feel the same – it didnt click to its on and off position like it used to – and since that started, I can’t get the jointer to turn on. My question is this. Does anyone know where I ...

FREE Templates!! - 4 replies
Hey everyone. I started a Blog here on Lumberjocks for some free Push-Block templates that I designed. In the blog there is also a handle template that will fit a Stanley Hand Plane.

Need Help on project. (part two)...... - 2 replies
Thanks everyone for all the help with my last forum topic – trying to figure out a design for a chiropractic adjusting table. You guys came up with a lot of good points, and at the end I just realized that it wasn’t going to work (atleast not for now). Even though I liked how the last design looked, I think this will be a lot stron...

Need help on project. Joinery...... - 21 replies
Hey everyone. For those that dont know, I am going for my doctorate in chiropractic (unfortunately that means hardly any time for woodworking…except at night in my dreams). Chiropractic adjusting tables are not cheap, and tons of students are looking to buy them. So I figured maybe this would be my chance to build something and maybe se...

tools....money is no object...... - 56 replies
In my continuous dreaming of hopefully one day owning a top-of-the-line woodworking shop, I’m constantly looking up tools, and trying to figure out what is the BEST out there. Unfortunately with the VAST number of companies offering “top-of-the-line” tools, its hard to determine which one really is at the top, mainly because e...

A good way to start the holidays......not! - 25 replies
So most of you know I am a chiropractic student, and while I absolutely love it, it can be EXTREMELY difficult. I was supposed to have a test this morning in Spinal Anatomy II (the hardest class in the entire curriculum at Palmer) at 7:30AM. I have been studying for it for the last couple of days. Yesterday I studied from 8am until almost 1am...

negative side to blocking - 62 replies
I was on tonight and saw a forum/blog topic about someone who had a problem. They screwed up a project and was looking for ideas to fix it. I was just about to write him/her a pretty solid idea that no one else had mentioned that I think would have worked great – unfortunately I am blocked by this individual, so I couldnt. The only re...

Search Function - 11 replies
I was wondering if there is a way to search for things (like projects) with pictures? When you search for a project you get a huge list of descriptions of each project, which means you have to click on each description to see what it is, what it looks like, etc, etc. Maybe I’m missing something, and there is a way, but i’m not see...

figured wood finishing question. - 12 replies
Hey LJ’s I’m doing some research before i start to make my first ukulele (small guitar). I want to use a figured maple for the sides (maybe for all of it). When using a very figured wood, how do you finish it to get the the figure to really pop out?? or maybe a better way to say it is how do you enhance the figure and give it s...

Both links are completely safe. I’ve been looking at them for a while now – trying to build up the courage to attempt my first ukulele build. This first link has a great picture tutorial – the “how to” for the Rosette Inlaying is AMAZING. There is some really unique/cool jigs in here, as well as a process of st...

wipe on poly, question! - 13 replies
I am restoring a 100+ year old ukulele that was sitting up in my parents attic for god knows how long. It has no sentimental value, but I actually play the ukulele so thought I’d be a nice addition. I sanded it down as best I could. It has a lot of stress fractures in the wood – not sure if thats the correct term – but it lo...

Where would you even begin????........ - 30 replies
So i’m guessing (if anyone actually takes interest in this) this might stir up a LOT of different ideas as to how this might be done. Unfortunately none of these ideas will come from me!! haha…Where would someone even begin to build the WOOD aspect of this? Once I graduate Palmer and have time to hone in on my woodworking skills ...
