Shop stuff #200: Part 10 of the potato bin series...finally

12-05-2020 12:28 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Yes, I actually took the time to get back at editing and putting together a video. It is not my best performing series, but this episode uses some pretty special wood that really makes the unit pop! Thanks for tuning in and commenting. Oh, and I’ve given up on how to figure out how to embed video. Lumberjocks just seems to want to make it impossible.

12-04-2020 03:24 PM by littlecope | 7 comments »

(In wondering where to put this, it was discovered that a “Shop Projects” series had already been begun, but an entry for this Shop had never been made… until now) With the success of the recent Planer Table project, inspiration was kindled to build a permanent work table for the Router… You would have to be pretty long in the tooth around LJ”s to remember, but the plastics for the top were gifted to me nearly 10 years ago by our own Rob Kollman… It h...

purchases from China.. #1: Making purchases from China

11-22-2020 07:56 PM by abie | 6 comments »

Be forewarned Purchases from China, shipped from China are problematic..My personal experience leaves me to find supplies from local dealers and not direct from ChinaMany items on the net are direct from China and often have phoney shipping information…Pay pal will not refund monies sent to China if you cannot track the shipment..Nothing against Chinese products, just the shipping aspect..things from China take weeks to arrive and if tracking info is suspect you are out your hard ear...

Blind Dovetails? #1: back story, day one

10-27-2020 05:51 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Was just sitting around, one day, watching a bit of Roy Underhill’s The Woodwright’s Shop on Youtube. He had Chris Schwarz on, talking about building “Campaign Furniture” episode 1….when Chris showed how to make the corner joints used in the casework….before all the brass parts were added. Called it a Full Blind Dovetail. Wasn’t doing any projects at the moment, hmmm…maybe give those a try….would be something different to learn? ...

So anyway, if you remember from the last House Projects Blog Entry, I had been furloughed from where I Work…Debbie and I enjoyed the time immensely, taking rides all over our beautiful State and to the Coast, and I managed to get some significant work done around this Old House…But after seven pleasurable weeks, the phone rang, and I was called back… It was actually a tough transition, tougher than I thought it would be, going back to the Daily (or Nightly in my case) Grind...

Opinion: Budget resaw - Get a 1 HP 14 inch saw

10-13-2020 12:12 AM by Richard | 1 comment »

If you want to resaw, spend $400 and get a 1 HP saw. Resist the temptation to “save” $115 by “trying” a 1/3 HP saw. (Prices in effect Oct 2020) Resawing is the cutting of boards into even thinner boards, or at the limits into cuts thin enough to use for veneers. If you’re looking to start resawing, you’re going to need a band saw, and if your budget is tight, you don’t have a lot of options. I’ve tried two inexpensive floorstanding saws: a 10 inch Wen saw (3962; $28...

I break out the stuff I put into storage in my early twenties and see what I still have to work with getting ready for a winter pandemic, “one more guitar”, build.This video is the story of how I got here and my ‘guitar stuff’ from the late 70’s getting ready to build One More Guitar. Wish me luck. It’s been a long time..
