Woodworking

I don't recall seeing anything on here about the hobby. Do you do it? Have any interest? Tools? Have you made anything? Do you want to learn?

With the recent developments on the Planet, it got me thinking, what can I do to contribute and support the new effort?

I had no problem with any of the old guard and want to support the effort to make Chiefs Planet great again with the regime.


They aren't teaching vocational training in high school anymore, but maybe we can provide a venue here to learn woodworking?

There is a handyman mega thread, but this deserves it's own thread if we are going to accomplish something.

When I went to Junior high school we had woodworking class and I have always loved it. Finally, upon retirement, I have been able to set up a nice woodwork shop. I can go from station to station and perform the particular task, planing, jointer, sander, router table, radial arm, table and band saw.

I am currently on my fifth cedar chest this winter. Each one has gotten much easier as I have learned.

We have a cedar mill about ten miles away so it has been very instrumental in the effort as raw material is the main ingredient. It is dirt cheap at the mill and I have been buying 1.1 inch thick by 52 long by 4.25 wide boards and gluing them together.

What are you working on?

I guess guitars qualify since they are made of wood...

That stuff kind of keeps it from getting boring. I have stopped a couple of my saws lately and you just stay out of the way. Run and hide.

The scary part on the table saw for me is using my dado blades like i used to make these shelves. You are cutting out a very wide path and it whirrs pretty loud. You are also at the limits of the shaft width.

Looking back, our middle school shop classes were pretty impressive as well. In addition to wood and metal, we did leather stamping, plastic molding, silk screening and probably other stuff I'm forgetting. We even cast metals which was super cool.

Is a lot of that training valuable in your job today? Help you build the fundamentals that you use?

Oh absolutely. I don't know where else I would have learned to use so many different types of tools. It sure as hell wasn't going to happen at home.

****, I am STILL staining the cabinets. It's been a slow and tedious process and I've had to redo some of them because I didn't like how they were turning out. I'm probably about 3/4ths of the way done with them but they are finally starting to shape up pretty nicely. As soon as I'm done with that I just have to do the floor. I really need to have it finished by spring.

I think this generation is really missing out on that kind of training. We had this come up in DC one day.

The granite counter tops, the backsplash and stove top look nice! Making pork roll there will never be the same now as long as it doesn't snow and you don't get called in for emergencies you'll get it done by Easter lol

I am refurbishing a 1952 Tudor house right now.

After that I plan on a cabinet from a tree from my yard topped by the 2007 ice storm. It was a black cherry & I had the bottom 12 feet cut into planks. It went into the attic for 3 years to season. Then I planed it all out.

Gorgeous wood.

Found a 22 buried in the tree. Planed off shiny & bright. I will put that in a prominent location for conversation.

The refurbishing has stretched my plumbing & electrical. Learned window glazing. Tile. Now starting on sanding the hard wood floors. Hope to have it done next month.
