07-25-2008 08:06 AM by Davidramsey03 | 9 comments »

BEFORE I START, IF YOU READ THIS, AND CAN OFFER ADVICE, I’D LOVE TO HEAR IT. THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!!! Ok, after collecting information from a couple key people, and looking carefully at my pieces, I’ve moved on to Sample #2. First things first. NEW CLAMPS!!!!! Not the best, but all I could get for now. On to business. More blanks, 10 this time. For these, I used a sanding block and norton 3x sandpaper. This was slow, but quiet as it was about 9:00PM when I started, and I’...

Cutting Board Learning #1: First Steps

07-24-2008 02:06 AM by Davidramsey03 | 5 comments »

BEFORE I START, IF YOU READ THIS, AND CAN OFFER ADVICE ON IMPROVING THIS WITHOUT BUYING ANYTHING OVER $25, I’D LOVE TO HEAR YOUR ADVICE. THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!!! I bought some clearance pen blanks from Rockler (Pau Ferro, Indian Rosewood, and Cherry, I think). Not having any “larger” tools or super-fine precision tools (band saw, table saw, router table, etc.) I decided I would begin the adventure the “backwoods” way. I Started by laying them together, checki...

Does anyone know anything about the art of coopering?

06-21-2008 11:29 PM by jockmike2 | 17 comments »

I am in the process making a couple large teardrop shaped supports for a table, but know absolutely nothing about coopering and the two supports are rather large. Is there an expert among the Lumberjocks that could give me some pointers or ideas where to hunt for information that would be of help to a begginer. That’s the reason I’m asking here rather than a blind search on line. I could search for days and get no where. I have a basic understanding of what coopering is and unders...

I had my first kickback episode and do not know what I did wrong… I was ripping a small piece of of red oak to a width of 3”. The piece I was ripping was a scrap from a previous project and was not rectangular in shape. Here is a picture of the piece after I cut the excess off: In the picture you can see the push stick that I was using and the setup of the saw. Here is another picture at a lower angle: Here is what happened: I pushed the piece forward and the wast...

My marquetry guidelines....

02-11-2008 08:25 PM by Frank Boer | 6 comments »

• My marquetry guidelines: There’s nothing to it,... really just get a nice and strait ruler, a sharp normal utility-knife, scotch-tape , patience and a small hard sandingblock with 150 and 180 grain and start cutting, thats how I learned it….. Guidelines: - I generally use MDF as a work-surface because it has no grain and therefore the knife won’t try to ‘wonder off’. - Never try to cut the veneer in one go, always make multiple lite strokes dependin...

I need help, I know in more ways than one

My 16 in variable speed wood lathe model number( 46-745, 46-746, and 46-765x ) has a broken inverter Part # 1 I’ve called the Delta Manufacturing Plant in Tenn. and they said they discontinued production of all parts on this model a couple years ago. I have bought a new (supposed) one from a company in Lansing but it was no good. When I had an electrician hook it up and it did’nt work he said, must be the motor is bad. So I took the motor to Lansing Electric, a reputable organizat...

Does it hurt to go to a urologist?

07-11-2007 01:36 AM by jockmike2 | 24 comments »

I’ve got to go to a urologist tomorrow and I’m wondering who else has gone and what do they do? Yes I have noctoria and I have trouble stopping once I do get going. Listen, my dad died with prostate cancer, two uncles on my mothers side also, plus my grandad on my mothers side and my grandad on my Dads side. It just don’t look good. You know what I mean? Talk about needing some prayers, I’m begging you folks to hook up with your higher power, and ask for some help for...

What can I say, except thank you and thank you again. You have created an extraordinary website and luckily I’ve been around long enough to see it and you grow. You have always treated me with the utmost respect and honesty, when I have bothered you with my comp;uter promblems, which has been, lets say quite a few times, and I do appreciate all the help you have given or at least tried to give me. Which most of the time turned out to be something wrong on this end. I know you have worke...

Hi Folks, I’ve been off the blog for the past few very busy days, something about an infestation of mice in our RV. Problem now solved so I can get back to more pressing things. I am having a new fence put in around our place with a double 10 ft. gate for the RV. I would like to put a Brick Post with an appropriate cap on each side of this entry. I’ve never done very much of this sort of work and I like the idea of a challenge. Would anyone be able to tell me where I might find so...
