Re: Woodchips - August 2016

Hi guys,

I hope this forum catches on ... I think there may be quite a few of us who like making sawdust along with more traditional art. Time wil tell ...

Re: Woodchips - August 2016

Hello all,
Ken, I'm glad you started this forum. I like to do a little woodworking and I'll post some things as I finish.
I use Rockler, too. They are a little expensive, but they have unique items.
Bill

We can use all the participants we can get here. I love working with wood although I love drawing with graphite as well.

Re: Woodchips - August 2016

Our business is actually called "Camp Sawdust". We lived near the great camps of the Adirondacs (upstate NY Wolcott) so as a joke we always referred to our shack as a 'great camp'. Our first rescue dog ran into the woodshop when we brought him home and laid down in the sawdust under the table saw...and he blended right in: same color. So we got a name for the dog and the camp at the same time.

Today I am unretired with a little business selling off some of the woodcrafts we made over the years, adding new ones now & agin. What I make now is birdhouses, they sell adequately and I enjoy making them.

So good to see this forum, I always enjoyed wood, but had no place to talk about it and share. Looking forward to getting to know y'all better.

If you are ever passing thru Chattanooga area let me know and we'll slop sum grits and fried chicken. Sorry, no poke salad or greens...too bitter for this old Yankee.

Good to see you here, Greggo. Feel free to share any of your projects please. I saw a Tommy MacDonald show where he was making birdhouses ... looked interesting.

Re: Woodchips - August 2016

Good for you Anne! I went out to my shop recently with the intention of cleaning it up so I could do something ... but it was such a mess that I lost heart. Sigh. What it really needs is for me to open the garage door, get my compressor going and give the entire shop a good blow. That generally takes about an hour and a half but it doesn't do anything for the mess although it gets rid of the dust and cobwebs - so straightening is another couple hours. I didn't have the energy to tackle all that ... Excuses ... excuses ... but ...

Re: Woodchips - August 2016

Ken, my husband has moved my lathe out to where I can use it. I'm stunned that the skew chisel still loves me. He gave away his fret cutting machine, over engineered and bloody heavy, but works a treat. Five minutes instead of hours.



In its new home now. Which is somewhat tidier than its old one. And the fifteen year old put it together.

More will come.

Ken, use a vacuum with a bag that you can empty outside. Blowers, just blow everything everywhere.They are blowers. Now I feel like the household goddess lecturing. Or not. I kept a vacuum close by when I was cutting pearl. The dust made my lungs ache.

Now, vacuum is not a woman thing despite male cries inside the home to the contrary.

Anyone can wave a sucker? Makes it all dust tidy and pleasant should one wave the wand

Re: Woodchips - August 2016

The thing is that I have all sorts of shelves and things on those shelves all over the shop so I would have to do a major dusting first .. .and that is much like blowing. I have a pretty large compressor so I open the overhead door and blow everything outside. Works quite well when i do it ... and I don't clog any filters except my dust mask. For my shop, it's actually easier than a vacuum. But it requires a certain overcoming of inertia and I'm not doing that well with that part .... perhaps tomorrow ...

Re: Woodchips - August 2016

Just ran across this forum, from a cross reference from ArtL, in the watercolor forum. When I'm not creating a watercolor, I can be found in the garage, restoring a "woodie" station wagon, a sideline of mine. Maybe out of the realm of this forum, but thought I'd poke my head in and say hello.

Rich
