random #17: I finally have a proper wood lathe!

05-12-2009 01:05 PM by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

Mom visited last week, and with some ideas of things she wanted me to build, we checked out Anderson Plywood (LA, CA) – she loves zebrawood :) – and my favorite place: Rockler (Torrance, CA). While at Rockler, she fell in love with some turned bottle stoppers made by Robert, who I think might be a manager there, and decided she wanted me to make a bunch for her and her friends, starting with a set of 3 for one friend in particular. They only had 2 chrome wine bottle stopper har...

Wood IDs #9: Sealing up the mystery tree (probably California Bay Laurel)

03-29-2009 08:38 PM by Gary Fixler | 3 comments »

You folks helped me to ID this as probably a California Bay Laurel, blown down a pretty strong wind storm a week ago. I’m still going to research it, but for now, it needed to be sealed up against the checking that had already begun. I wanted some good pics of the cross sections before they get their coat of sealer. I have 2 gallons of Anchorseal in shipment now from the source, and I’m wondering if I should have gotten the 5gal bucket. Meanwhile, last week I picked up 2 quarts of...

deals #1: Rockler 25-Piece HSS Brad Point Bit Set

03-07-2009 01:43 PM by Gary Fixler | 4 comments »

BLERG! I bought these last weekend, 6 days ago now, for $40. I tend to stock up on 50%-off items I really want in their continuous stream of sales, but while at the store to take advantage of a $15 coupon (>$50 purchase), I saw these. They weren’t on sale, but every 1/64” increment between 1/8” and 1/2”, and brad point as well? I Had to have them. I hadn’t seen them on sale (or I’ve forgotten) in the months (year?) that I’ve been scouring their sales,...

Tree IDs #2: collecting wood

02-22-2009 12:07 PM by Gary Fixler | 13 comments »

I’m overwhelmed by the love shown in my last post in this series, asking if anyone was interested in learning with me (more like teaching me) about different woods, and the trees from which we get them. You were! I’ve found my people. Let’s get started! cracks knuckles I thought I’d begin not with a tree, but with something very much related and interesting that I recently stumbled upon in one of my habitual all-night online woodworking research sessions: the IWCS, ...

Thanks Rockler!

04-24-2008 05:42 PM by itsme_timd | 4 comments »

Just wanted to share a good experience with Rockler. They’re getting some new pen kits in and I ordered a Jr. Gent in black titanium. When I received the kit I got a gold finish kit. The part number matched what the site had listed as the BT kit but the description said it was a gold kit. New item, slight mix-up, it happens. Rockler sent me a new kit and no charge and told me to keep the gold kit for my troubles! Always nice to get quick and courteous service these days. Th...
