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. ...

Help me choose!! (non-shop talk) - 61 replies
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. My brother is a photographer and took the pictures, and I took ...

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...

Help with Wipe-On Poly over Paint - 57 replies
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...

How's this for a Bench Vise??? - 11 replies
Hey guys. Here is another gem in “my” workshop! :) A very old bench vise. It is not mounted correctly. You’ll notice the long rod extending down towards the floor. That rod is supposed to be put into the concrete for more stability/support. Instead it is just attached to the bench. He actually has two of these. One is i...

"My" woodworking shop, and tools..... - 19 replies
Hey guys and gals. I had posted a blog about some planes I found in my neighbor’s shop that I wanted to restore/clean up so I could use them. Some people noticed some saws hanging on the wall in the background of that blog, and wanted to see them. So i’m posting them here along with other pictures of “My” shop. The sh...

Browsing Lumberjocks' Woodworking Shops..... - 77 replies
Even though I’ve been on this site for over a year (and probably on it every day…..more than once) I’ve only recently started looking in the Shops tab at the top of the page. I love looking at these shops, giving me ideas for my own shop someday, and just seeing how different people utilize different spaces! The ease of sea...

I’ll let the pictures do the explaining. This is something that just popped into my head today, and decided to mock it up in Google Sketchup. What are your thoughts?? (only one end of clamp shown. End with the “tightening up” part is not shown) You wil not hurt my feelings – as even I’m not sure if ...
