Wooden Alaskan Chainsaw Mill V2.0 #1: Google Sketchup and Design

01-05-2017 10:28 PM by TObenhuber | 0 comments »

Alaskan Chainsaw Mill V2.0 is going to be a follow on to the review I posted around this time last year. It seems to have been fairly liked considering it now shows up on Google within the first page of search results. Just type in “Chainsaw Mill” into Google and you will see it within a scroll or two. I’ll thank you all on Lumberjocks for that. Note: some of the images are large but if you right click on them and “Open image in new tab.” You will be able to see...

Workshop 2016 #5: Feelin the flow

08-21-2016 04:00 AM by Ty Sullivan | 0 comments »

Believe it or not I’ve survived these past nearly six months in the new space with only two open outlets! It has been a completely trying experience with the back and forth of plug ins and then outs as I’ve moved from equipment to equipment. It has, however pushed me to do more at once and plan ahead more. I’ve learned new tricks and have been forced to build a crosscut sled instead of relying on my miter saw so often. I’m appreciative for the results of this electric...

Strat Style Guitar #1: Project Start

08-01-2016 01:23 AM by DanMelander | 2 comments »

I started taking guitar lessons last year. My instrument is a Classical Style Acoustic guitar. I chose a classical guitar because it has a 2” nut, which is perfect for my big fat fingers. After a while, I became interested in electric guitars also. Electric guitars have much smaller string spacing, which made it difficult for me to play. Big Lou Guitars makes a Strat Style electric guitar with a 1 7/8” nut, and they also sell necks with 1 7/8” and 2” nuts. I deci...

The "Shed" #2: Dirtwork....augh.

10-26-2014 04:39 AM by Ty Sullivan | 1 comment »

After a few weeks of essentially doing nothing but research (including bugging my master electrician father inlaw) about how to NOT metaphorically shoot myself in the foot I finally broke ground on the electrical supply to the new shed. Graciously my father offered his tiller and his own back to help me get the trench dug and the 40 feet of main line put into it’s permanent location in just under four hours…no idea how long it would have taken without the now 24 year old tiller t...

Building my first guitar #1: Finished the body blank, got all the parts.

09-22-2012 03:15 PM by daverose | 2 comments »

Was inspired by the Randall Price series on building a tenor acoustic guitar and figured my wood working skills had reached the point where I could attempt a guitar, albeit an electric one. I’m slightly obsessive about using recycled wood whenever I can and am often going through people’s old furniture where I have salvaged some quite nice wood over the years. This time around a friend was throwing out an old beat up kitchen table while I was helping her move house. It seemed...

Dust Collection Electrical Problem

04-01-2012 11:27 PM by rockinmichael | 14 comments »

I recently purchased a Shop Fox 1.5 hp Dust Collector. It claims to only draw 15 amps, but directly hooked up to a 15 amp outlet, it trips. The nearest 20 amp outlet is 15 feet away and with a 15 foot extension cord (12 guage), it still trips. However it does work directly hooked up to the 20 amp, but it is then too far away from the tablesaw, planer and other tools. Installing 220 volt isn’t an option. Any suggestions?
