  1. After getting back from my long road trip, I picked up a load of Cedar I had at the saw mill. I have had to jump into full production of Green Egg Tables as I got behind on orders while I was away. This weekend and through last night we have three table assembled, two finished and one that I need to cut the hole for the egg to nest in. The shop is getting full and I still have two more to build. It has been all hands in the shop and lots of work getting done. The next one I start is a custom with two cabinets and three drawers. It will be 6' in length and 30 1/2" deep 34" tall. I am starting the glue up for the top since it will have a solid top. I'll have more to share with you later....
  2. OK as a lot of you may know, I am a huge fan of Titebond and its family of glues. I use it quite a bit when I am making pieces to turn, especially for the tops I make. This does not require a lot of glue though, so the glue sits around for an extended period of time, which causes it to age and get clumpy, or at the very least, thicker than it was when I bought it. Can you add anything to the glue like say water, to get it flowing again without destroying the glue properties?? Thanks.
  3. So just to get a little chatter going and I haven't ask one of these in a while, I thought today would be a good time. When you are doing or planning a woodworking project, what is your favorite part of the project? 1. Drawing a scale drawing 2. Building a prototype 3. Dimensioning the material 4. Layout 5. Joinery 6. Assembly 7. Sanding 8. Staining or finishing 9. Just seeing the end results!
  4. After reading @Steve Krumanaker blog on his laser, it has interested me greatly, but on the cnc router level. But Steve's blog really got me thinking on this. Been looking at CNC Router home made plans and there is a whole community out there for this type of do-it-yourself and they are very supportive of one another, very open source, free plans, open source software, and just a neat community altogether. Thanks Steve for showing me.
  5. So a friend, who i've made something for previously, posts on FB a pic and link to an oval cutting board that overhangs an inside counter in the kitchen. 24x18, maple, available on Amazon for $132 with free shipping. told him that there is no way that me making that for that price is worth me doing it. figure i'd need about 4BF of lumber. lumber that is 120 miles away (round trip). so i'd spend about $24 on gas just to fetch the lumber, another $25 on the lumber, and another 3-4 hours making it over the course of a day or two. 132-49 = 83, and if i cover shipping, that would be about $30 to me (as i'm not a frequent shipper), so my paper profit is now about $53. for 3 hours of effort, that's only about $17/hr. not worth doing it once you factor in the fixed shop costs that should be accounted for to determine the real "money in my pocket" profit.
  6. There was a topic recently about custom woodwork, which I've now lost track of. I heard Nancy in a presentation last weekend and meant to post some of here thoughts, but could not find those either at the time. Probably the best advice I got before I quit my job and started my business from from a (former) custom woodworker, "The world is full of ex-custom woodworkers paying off their IRS debts." That was enough to lead me in another direction. Here's one of Nancy's recent posts http://www.finewoodworking.com/2017/08/14/nancy-hillers-reality-checklist
  7. 10 inch unisaw in kansas city for $675 if anybody knows of anybody looking for one on kc craigslist...
  8. s ago In my lifetime of woodworking, paw built truck bodies when I wuz little. Still remember 1/4'' bolts, nuts & washers, the 'speed handle w/socket to fit those 1/4'' nuts, bolted on sidebody 1X4's. The way the two ''sills' 4X6 were cut out to fit the hump in truck frame over rear axle. Paw cut'm out w/foot azz, so they fit down solid and then bolted down with piece of metal over the sill and one underneath the truck frame, with two long bolts at each, four to /for each truck body. Usually smidgen higher/taller that truck cab. Sometime customer wanted about two foot higher sections, that could be slipped down into original/everyday bodies, to haul livestock or ear corn. *****Foot azz is grubbing hoe type thing with a crocked handle, bout 30 something inches long. This is all I know to call/name it. Prolly aint made anymore for sale. Blade bout 4'' wide. alright if ya made it this far, I love lathe, building Cedar chest, picture frames, etc., etc. ****2007 started writing, named all books Wiregrass, Grits & 1.MURDER, 2.FOGGY HORSESHOE,3.GHOST DANCER,4.SECOND CHANCE--all about a yankee that came south, stayed raised a family. Then one little stand alone called WIREGRASS AND GRITS, 5.For boys only. Not a dirty/off color word in any ov'm. btw, Amazon has one of these for $50 something. Cya
  9. At what point in your life (and year) did you start woodworking? I get asked this question occasionally, like this week. I usually respond, "Well, that's sort of like asking a singer when they started singing." I grew up in the 50s and 60s. I dinked around with wood some as a kid, but my father was not really a woodworker. Just a farmer, you know, fix it up yourself kinda guy. I got some formal "industrial arts" in seventh and eight grade. But not in High School. That was for the "shop guys" as they were known. Off to college in the 70s. After graduation, lived in apartments for a few years and built some things "just because I needed them for the home." Moved every year or two for about 5 years, which made it difficult to really get started. Then about 1980, started acquiring a few more tools, doing more reading and self-education, and took off as my primary avocation. About 2003, frustrated with my job and fearing the biennial layoffs, quit and started my own furniture repair business. Still here, still learning, still doing the work,though now semi-retired, part-time, and woodworking as a hobby "because my kids need things for their homes." Most of the people I know started out the same way.
  10. Been looking for clamp rack solutions but haven't had and ideals deals to impress me enough to make it. Can't really find any pictures of these clamps In a clamp rack. Just started using Pinterest this week and couldn't find anything there on these clamps. Open for ideals...throw some pictures if you can find any. Thx.....
  11. Folks, I am going to be selling off my larger equipment, time to downsize, and I am going to replace it with older and smaller antique machinery, first on the chopping block is my 12" Grizz table saw, and I want to replace it with old ARN, does anyone know of some good locations via internet to purchase old machinery? I know about Ebay, Craigslist, any others? Thanks!
  12. Trying to draw up my own blue prints for a concealment cabinet. And yes.... draw. I don't have the money for a CAD program or the patience to learn to use one. Besides, I kinda like the process of drawing it out. Others who also draw out your own... are there any tips/tricks/things I should know? It's a pretty simple cabinet. Once I get ahold of my phone, I'll share what I've drawn up thus far. Please feel free to let me know what I'm missing (as if I would ever doubt that you all will do just that LOL). I'll load pictures on a reply.

    Alien

    From the album: Turnings

    Thought this one looked like something out of a star trek episode so named it the alien due to its organic shape specifically related to the finial. The hollow form is Cedar with turquoise inlay in the cracked and small voids. The headpiece or Finial is made of Bradford Pear and has turquoise inlay as well in a concentric pattern on each side which was all turned and hand carved. Size including the finial is around 14.5"x9.5". Hope you enjoy as much as I did making it.

  16. So, I did a thing... I learned how to miter cut trim so it actually fits!!! Of course, I got so excited I forgot to take pics at the shop. However, I did get pictures of my most recent river table top (will be an end table). Originally I had planned to oil the wood and wax the entire top... however, the tung oil raised the grains of the wood (oak? I don't know) so the wax wouldn't shine up right... so I sanded it all down, sanded the wood flat (60, 80, 120, 220). I put a seal coat of epoxy resin on it, will do another seal coat and then a flood coat. It already looks MUCH better than it did before I changed route. And yes... I'm having way too much fun with something that is WAY too expensive.
  17. Well guys it looks like a road trip. I've been looking at the schedule for The Woodworking Show and it's going to be as close to me as it gets with about a 2 hour drive in Chantilly, Va on March 22-24th. The idea of seeing Alex Snodgrass give his presentation for Carter Products is making me feel like a kid on Christmas Eve. I had seen his video at one of the shows and taken his advice when setting up and troubleshooting my Laguna 1412 bandsaw and it's now running like a champ. Nothing like doing it right. And looking at the list of speakers shows me it's a chance to learn and see in action some of the products I've been looking at but hadn't actually seen used in person. But mostly I like the idea of being able to see and feel a tool in my hands to see just how well it fits and how much it weighs. Plus if I have any questions there are knowledgeable people right there to guide you. Of course that's no replacement for this forum but hands on and in person sometimes makes things really clear. I'm a big fan of media (pictures/videos) because sometimes the written and spoken word just isn't all that clear to me. Show me and I'm golden, well a bit better anyway. It still may take a few attempts but. Anyway just in case you aren't aware of this show I thought you may want to see if it will be close enough to you to consider. I'll post back after the show to give you my impressions. And of course some pictures. Of course if I buy too much I may have to do that on the run......or in hiding till the little lady cools down. All kidding aside, she has supported me in every way in my pursuit of this great hobby and I do use discretion when making my buying choices. Next trick I'll try is convincing her to go to Lie-Nielsen's open house July 12-13th following with the lobster bake. I'd really like to see their process and have a chance to use their tools during their demos. Any of you take this trip yet? Any reviews on the tour and hands on of their planes? May be too soon after going to Alaska in May but worth a shot. Maybe another box of Godiva Dark Chocolate Truffles........

  19. Here's the newest addition (and my first commission!!). My battle buddy asked me to make this as a thank you gift for her friend. I wasn't sure it would turn out right, but she loves it, so I guess that means it did...
