Part 1: vidoes, blogs and mentors

12-28-2012 07:18 PM by jacob34 | 4 comments »

I am sitting here honestly slightly bummed because I would love to be in my shop but my 4 year old and wife (who works nights) are sleeping and my shop happens to be directly below them. I am however thinking about a project that I have been fighting to get started and with other projects and well life getting in the way I have only built it in my head (probably look a lot better if it stays there). This project however has a few things new in it, as I am trying to implement new aspects in...

Part 2: small steps can sometimes carry you farther.

01-11-2013 04:14 PM by jacob34 | 6 comments »

So I was finishing,literally finishing my last project and quite pleased with myself it was the first time I used a top coat or two step finishing of any kind. It wasn’t difficult and to be honest I asked advice before taking the plunge. But it opened my eyes up to a lot of possibilities that I was hesitant to even think about. This is my morning coffee pondering’s this morning and the realization came to me I, as probably most of us, get excited over small steps forward in my ...

So I have decided I am far enough along to make a workbench or more importantly I have gotten to a point where I notice a lot of situations where a bench would make my woodworking life way easier. The problem is two fold though, one I design everything I make and in this case am of coarse going to do the same thing and two I tend to go “redneck” with my shop projects. So I am throwing it out to all my Lumberjock pals, go with a bench such as a Rubio. Or to go redneck, using con...

Part 4: shop time versus softball coaching

09-16-2013 04:11 PM by jacob34 | 4 comments »

So I have after two years of telling my wife I would start on a liquor cabinet, actually started it. Unfortunately well maybe inconveniently I also coach softball for my girls which has made it tough to finish before mentioned cabinet. I now have also volunteered on Thursdays and Fridays in my kindergarteners class for a few hours which happens to be my only two days off. On a side not the softball team is 3-1 and just put a 17-11 wooping on a team Sunday. So my thoughts of the morning are ...

Part 5: Maloof??

02-23-2014 03:53 AM by jacob34 | 4 comments »

I probably spelled that wrong, anyway so I am sitting here at work and thinking as I look through all the impressive projects that fellow lumberjocks have posted and a thought occurs. I have seen tables, chairs, boxes, jigs and probably stands for wigs, I have seen games and toys, push cars, rockers and rocking horses. I have seen bottle openers and bottle holders, cabinets, shelves and blanket chests I have even seen toilet roll holders. I have never seen a toilet seat though. I think pro...
