Oregon Coast Woodworkers? - 1 reply
Hello fellow LJs. I’m trying to network with woodworkers who live along the Oregon coast who can provide info and advice on areas to live, relocation, what to look for, etc. My wife and I visited last summer and we really like the Florence to Newport area and also the southern coast around Gold Beach. My wife is an artist so we need to ...

Commission Opportunity - 1 reply
There does’t seem to be a good fit for this topic so I put it in Designing. I have a lead on a commision opportunity in Chicago for an outdoor bench or benches. My guess is the closer you are the better, but it is not required. This appears to be a highly visible project that will be viewed and used by a significant number of uppe...

Grizzly Jointers Comparison Questions - 7 replies
Hello fellow LJs. I’m looking for some help on the Grizzly Jointers. I’m looking for an 8” Jointer w/ Spiral cutter and the mobile base. Actually I’d really like to get a 10” jointer. Yes, I know they make a 10” jointer/planer combo, but I don’t want that. Grizzly offers so many jointers and it is...

LJ's Search Button - 5 replies
I sure miss the web-site’s search option. Or maybe I can’t see it? Seems like it was there awhile back. I used to be able to log on and type in a couple of keywords to find projects or blogs I had forgot to add to favorites.

Guess what? I forgot how to do this. Just trying to make some feet for a box. You can see from the two views in the Sketchup picture below what the problem is. I tried cutting away one side using the push/pull tool, but the second side bumped into the curved (sloping) surface that was created in the first cut. The lower picture shows the ki...

Catch them doing something good! - 5 replies
As much as I hate to be the target of or hear stories about bad customer service, I really love hearing stories about heroic saves, outstanding customer service, or just plane efficiency. Well let me add my latest tale. Recently, a routine order for some felt and barrell hinges from Woodcraft never showed up. On the scheduled delivery day I...

Help! Round (bowl) bottom forstner-type bit? - 7 replies
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a 3” to 4” diameter forstner bit with a bowl shaped bottom? It would make cutting round bottom dipping bowls in cutting boards alot easier. I know I could use a round template and/or regular forstner bit, but I would end up with a flat bottom and straight walls. Has anyone heard or seen such a t...

So here’s a Sketchup teaser. At least for me. How do I punch a hole through an object with a beveled surface? I want to make a through hole parallel to the back surface. I tried by punching a hole through a rectangle then chopping off the bevel, but it will not ‘cut’ through the hole. I then made the beveled part and place...

Does anyone know how to calculate the dimensions and glue (joining) angle for straight pieces from which to cut a segmented arch? Here’s a picture from a Sketchup model. I think (hope) all the required information is here. I guess what I’m looking for is a way to use the dimensions of the segmented arch to derive the size and nu...

Help! Large Bell Propane Torch? - 8 replies
Fellow Lumberjocks… I need help. I’m trying to learn the hot patina process on copper sheet and need to find a propane torch with a wide bell. While googling provides plenty of results for regular, bottled torches, I can’t seem to find much info on the wider bell. Except, it appears they make these for burning weeds, melting...

Suggestion: Break out project blogs - 2 replies
I love the site and really enjoy all the projects, reviews, blogs, and such. Have you considered breaking the blog postings into two categories? One for project instruction or progress and the other for the regular blog entries? While I enjoy both, it would be easier to use the blogs as a learning tool if I could scroll through the projects. ...
