Cleaning up the shop

12-20-2020 05:51 PM by BillGo | 8 comments »

I am new to the LJ forum. I am still exploring the site and the layout… Looking over the shops, I thought it would be good to add mine. I started taking a few pictures, and a few things stood out. I had several areas of clutter and “nests” that have been bugging me for some time now… Trying to take a picture motivated me to clean up a couple of those areas. I wish I had take a before and after picture, but I dug in and started cleaning up… I spent most of the eve...

RUMORS OF MY DEMISE WERE SOMEWHAT EXAGGERATED when a friend of mine recently said, “No seriously! They said your were dead!” Apparently a Veteran’s Group I used to attend just figured I kicked the bucket and told my friend I was dead. I don’t think this is true, but I am asking for a second opinion. I wanted to give an update to my LJ friends. Woodworking is still my therapy of choice. The problem right now is one of energy and safety. My cancer has gotten much w...

Tales of a Hack #5: A quick moment to say ... thanks.

12-21-2014 08:46 PM by ajw1978 | 4 comments »

Taking a break from a disastrous Christmas-present-making effort and wanted to just spend a moment saying “thanks.” In my industry, I spend a lot of time online; Facebook, Twitter, message boards, blogs and so on and so forth. Long before I discovered the joy of woodworking and tool ownership, I was a gadget geek and spent a lot of time interacting on related websites. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned, both professionally and socially, over the years, it’...

An amazing place...

10-31-2013 08:27 PM by maplerock | 11 comments »

I am a member of several on-line forums. I am retired, with a computer within easy walking distance to my refrigerator, I visit them all on a daily basis. Each forum has its benefits. Since a friend (aka Boxguy) led me to LumberJocks, it has become my most frequent forum. I thoroughly enjoy checking the new posts several times during the day. I also post a project every now and then. It is very gratifying to hear compliments on my work and to learn from so many fantastic woodworke...

A year ago, today

07-27-2011 05:19 PM by BritBoxmaker | 13 comments »

Its hard for me to believe but a year ago, today, Zee escaped from my fevered brain into the real world. Its a modest little box with a drop on lid but the technique used to make it has taken me places I didn’t expect. Its evolved to allow 3D patterns over all visible faces of my boxes. Allows strings to cross any line at any angle (with a little help from Steve, sras). All in all the technique has liberated my box design. Its evolved practically as well. I now use router bits to ach...

A purpleheart Purple Heart

08-12-2010 03:53 PM by BillyJ | 8 comments »

As I approach my first year as a Lumber Jock, I consider myself so very lucky. As a weekend DIY-er and wannabe woodworker, I am fortunate to have seriously injured myself only once. However, I am even more fortunate to have met SO many great Lumber Jocks. I’ve been involved in many different hobbies and sports, but have never formed friendships as I have through woodworking. In particular, those involved in Lumber Jocks are so willing to share advice, assist in teaching, and more imp...

Grizzman, a1jim and David, Awhile back Grizzman was kind enough to send me a few table saw cut off or as some would call it Scrapes, well these wern’t really that small to be scrapes, they were more or less small planks cut down into small boards for Scroll Sawing. Grizzman sent me a verity of wood from Dark Walnut Plywood to Cedar Wood and one I think he refured to as Antique Pine, which all of these pieces will eventualy come in Handy, I’ve yet to decide on what to make wi...

Giving back ... maybe a little?

10-30-2009 11:33 PM by NBeener | 39 comments »

All, As glad as I am to have found this hobby, I’m equally glad to have found this group. It’s doubtful that anybody here (who can walk upright, rather than swing through trees) is any newer at this than I am. I’m hopeful that I can give back … in some small way … by… telling this little story…. .... Our hobbies are like our relationships. If—like me—you’ve been with the same wonderful spouse for a while, then you kno...

I don't feel Bionic

05-28-2009 11:27 PM by Karson | 54 comments »

Well I’m back home, but I don’t feel very Bionic. The surgery went fine. it took about 75 minutes. I was asleep the whole time (At least I don’t remember anything) The pain wasn’t bad, I’ve taken myself off pain relievers after 1 day. I had a dull pressure pain, not a sharp one. There is not any real pain as of now. It’s a little sensitive to the touch (So don’t touch it) No showers for 7 days, but I guess I won’t be running any marathons ...
