In defense of LumberJocks' no win situation - 105 replies

I usually don’t get involved in the little spats that pop up on this site from time to time, but there has been a rash of threads lately ripping on the moderators for allowing too much politics and arguing. And since there’s nothing worse than a rash, I want to offer what I believe is some balance to the subject. I like LumberJocks. I d...

HELP!!! Blue Collar Woodworking needs your opinion! - 74 replies

This is our first “season” and it is a learning experiance for us. I’m trying to establish the direction of the show, fill the niche that I originally intended. That has led to some significant changes over the months the show has been on. The first episode bears little resemblance to the latest episode if you really look at th...

The KEY to peace, love and woodworking harmony on LJ's - 28 replies

It’s a fact. No sense in denying it. It is what it is and that’s the way it is. You are bound to tick someone off without the least bit of intent. It comes naturally to a format like this where words can mean one thing to one person, and another thing altogether to someone else. The main cause is simple, the written word lacks the be...

Will a Grizzly bandsaw riser work with a Delta bandsaw? - 9 replies

I have one of the many Delta clone bandsaws. My local woodcraft has a riser block kit for a Grizzly bandsaw on clearance for CHEAP, so cheap that I though of trying it out. Now, I know all the cons about putting a riser block on a saw, so no need to go into them here. I just want to know if anybody has any idea how likely it is to fit. Are Gr...

Have any finishing problems recently? So did Charles Neil !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - 7 replies

Charles Neil has always been known as the “finish king” of woodworking. I am quite certain he was spraying the rails of his baby crib while his diaper was full of shellac. (Too much? Sorry…) Anywho… Lately he’s been asking for people to tell him about their finishing problems so he can address them in an upcoming...

What is this? Stumpy's New Machine is coming this weekend... - 72 replies

This weekend on Blue Collar Woodworking we are beginning a three month project: “The ultimate tool cabinet build”. But since it would be pretty boring to just watch us make a cabinet, we’re going to pack those episodes full of extras. For example, the first part of the series, set to air this weekend, will feature a shop mad...

UPDATED: Ohhhhhhhhh baby! I wanna build a GIANT tool cabinet! - 105 replies

NOTE: This is an old post that has popped back up because of new comments. I actually never really finished this cabinet. I built the carcass and drawers, but not the cabinet doors because it became a plane and chisel till instead. It is seen in the background in more recent videos: Original post is below… I’m building the ...

Do you make Pens? - 85 replies

I’ve been thinking of making some pens. Everybody seems to be doing it, and I have always had a weird fascination with writing instruments. I have a massive collection in my office. Plus, I have to make some gifts to get a few people off my back. SO… How may of you turn pens?Do you use mini turning tools or your regular ones?Give ...

Ever see a hand plane that adjusts like this???? - 57 replies

I’ve never seen a plane like the one I just bought today. Anyone want to take a stab at what type it is? (I posted this on the endless hand plane thread too) I got a good deal on a plane today, near perfect condition! I wondered if this one would stump anyone on here… Ever see one of these? It’s a bit shorter than the Sta...

Do Woodworkers Use Facebook, Twitter, etc? Help me out... - 75 replies

I am a busy guy. I struggle just to find four or five hours a day to browse lumberjocks and make a few comments (and a few wisecracks). So Facebook? Twitter? I dunno… But, since I have been working on my show, I decided to try and leave updates on Facebook. Maybe try and reach a wider audience. After all, a podcast is more fun to make i...

NOTE: This is an old thread from 2012 Some complain about things here on LJ’s, but I want to say that, overall, this is by far the best forum on the web. I’ve been a member of Sawmill creek far longer than LJ’s, but today I asked for my account to be closed. Not because of any of the members, or any of the threads, or any of...

Almost time for STUMPY NUBS to take on CHARLES NEIL!!!!!!!!!! - 37 replies

I sit on a stool in my workshop, the lights off, the soft hum of the air cleaner is all that can be heard. As I sharpen my best chisel I imagine this is what the eve of a great battle was like for a soldier in the Civil War. I take out a sharpie and write “Stumpy” on a scrap of paper, I’ll pin that onto my shirt tomorrow so I c...

Who are the masters? I want a list! - 112 replies

When I ask “who are the true woodworking masters?” many of you would immediately say -”You mean besides Stumpy Nubs?” And while it’s funny that you’d say that, it wouldn’t make for a very useful list. Here’s what I’m looking for- Who are the true masters of their skill? Which men and women...

CHARLES NEIL vs. STUMPY NUBS- An epic throwdown! - 178 replies

Charles Neil challenged me, and I accepted. It’s sure to be a match on the level of Hulk Hogan vs. Andre the Giant. It’s the ultimate struggle between good and adequate, experience vs. mediocre talent, an epic battle between the South and the North not seen since the civil war! On one side you have Charles Neil, professional woodw...

I heard ROY UNDERHILL and CHRIS SCHWARZ were ARRESTED!!! - 43 replies

Did you hear the news? Turns out there was this HUGE fight at Woodworking in America and Roy Underhill took out his anger on Chris Schwarz with a big hunk of Iron! The way I heard it, Roy was whittling a little wooden boat out of a larger wooden boat and Chris came up behind him. Words were exchanged about hand tool skills. Chris took hold of...
