Ultimate Lumberjock Challenge, Project - 7 replies
So the new year is among us, in 5 hours and 45 minutes to be exact. It would be a very cool year if we can get this project built. So here is the first call for Sketchup artists. I’ve had communication with DaveR and he is willing to work on the project. My thoughts are that we get a group of people working on the design together, thro...

The Ultimate LJ Project/Challenge - 29 replies
So I woke up this morning with an idea. Yep, I actually had a thought in my tiny brain. I think it cost me some brain cells, but here I am and here it is. I was thinking how great it would be, and maybe this has been thought of before so sorry if it has, if several lumberjocks (however many wanted to) were able to design a project over a forum,...

Blog for business - 9 replies

To sand to..... - 4 replies
I am turning a vase and am quite frankly an amatuer at turning. My tools seem to suck, but it’s probably more my ability then the tools. I seem to leave a lot of damage and checking on the inside of the turning, and have to force my way in. This is sketchy because then it grabs the tool and smacks me in the side of the head. LOL. Anyho...

the unexplained - 8 replies
As we celebrated the creepiest of nights, cigars and beer kept us joyful. The candy went away with little fairies and happy clowns. There were no creatures, no little monsters dressed scarily. Not in todays age. The hallowest of nights went from creepy to seemingly wimpy. The children can’t handle being scared. But that is what the night ...

Happy Halloween - 6 replies
I figured I’d grace the site with a quick Happy Halloween, as well as share a couple of pumpkins Heidi and I carved. I carved the skull and she carved the flaming face and scare crow. I carved one with my daughter, but unfortunately didn’t get pics of it. I spent some time showing her how to use the saw, and she enjoyed scraping ou...

FWW Contest - 5 replies
I entered my bubinga cabinet into the cure for the common cabinet contest on Fine Woodworkings website and have been hesitant to ask for votes. However, I feel as though others have and will ask for votes too, so it puts me at a dissadvantage. So here is the project: ...

Vacuum Veneering - 6 replies
I haven’t had much experience with vacuum veneering large panels simply because you can pretty much buy whatever you want, which is what I have always done. On smaller projects, such as my marquetry projects, I have always glued my veneer to my substrate (one on front, and one of back for stabilization) and then put a caul on the front an...

new quote of the day - 5 replies
I posted my first quote of the day 2 days ago and was going to post one yesterday. I’d really like to make a “thing” out of it, but sometimes I just don’t think enough. I normally think of something throughout the day but don’t have a pen and paper to jot it down. This quote was thought up right before I went to ...

I may come up with a quote for everyone here from time to time. This is my first attempt and I may not be the first to say this, but this morning I thought it up. I haven’t read it or seen it. “To be successfull at what you do you must do what you do successfully.” So there you have it. Your quote of the day.

Wow, what a guy! - 24 replies
I have to say right off the bat that nobody has ever made anything for me, especially something that is extremely usefull. So to be able to share this post means the world to me. I’ve never been a huge pen fan, at least the ones that are always getting posted here. For some reason I’ve always disregarded them as a simple project, ...

Am I an idiot or what? - 13 replies
Well I complained about my tablesaw and how I couldn’t get it to zero. I was about to get ahold of ridgid and see about cashing in on the warranty. As I cranked on it it was buckling the side of the cabinet and I couldn’t figure out why it wouldn’t go to zero. I figured something was in there keeping it from turning so I clea...

What is it - 22 replies
Alrighty, I figured I’d give this a go. This could be easy for you. This is not my jig, I did not design it, invent it, etc. I just use it. The guy who made it moved. So Steven if you see this you can’t guess man. LOL The prize is feeling good that you knew what it was. LOL. So here it is. I’ll post the answer tomo...

Outdoor Table - 12 replies
I am in the process of bidding to build a custom out door table for a return client. His home is in the Arizona desert. He is wanting something that will be rustic. He wants it to be heavy, a tanish, light brown color, wants distressing, hand carvings, etc. I told him teak and he is familier with it, but I’m worried about it’s ca...
