Hello, I will be offering an online class here on Lumberjocks. Please sign up in the comments area below. Over the next several weeks I will be showing a step by step process for creating a hollow form vessel on the lathe. You should have some basic wood turning skills and some basic tools before attempting this project. When in doubt, error on the side of safety. Suggested Tools1/2” or 5/8” bowl gouge with fingernail grind1/2” or 5/8” straight hollowing tool1/2&...
What is your favorite iron and sharpening method AND why? After we had a few talks on Berthas ‘what is your favorite hand plane’ blog I decided we needed to go to next step. So please let us hear your thoughts show us pictures videos why you like your blade or sharpening method and proofs if they exist why it should be better than other. I am lazy by nature, and handicapped by life, so for me to stand and move the blade forward and backward on a stone or paper is a pa...
Karson and I challenged each other to a “Table-off” based on the Popular Woodworking Table from the February 2007 Issue. He has the pdf file and I will load up the diminsions to my web site as soon as we get the details.
In case you weren’t aware, I was recently invited to join in a very fun challenge over at Better Home's and Gardens and I was more than happy to accept. In BHG.com’s words, “We asked five of our favorite home and garden bloggers to create clever weekend projects for outdoor living, using $500 in materials from The Home Depot.” How awesome is that? So throughout the month of April, we’ll be blogging about the entire process over at BHG.com. And of course yo...

Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #1: Introduction - Sign Up and Objective

I was asked by MsDebbie if I would like to host an online scroll saw class here on...
Walnut Headboard Build A quick project that is needed but is also a nice mental diversion from the daily grind. Material pulled from inventory is (very) rough cut ‘wormy walnut’ sapwood that isn’t good for much, but is something around 5/4 thick and is long enough (and wide enough) to do the job before me. Using this for the rails, top and bottom. I’ll joint one edge, work up the face, then rip the piece before deciding on what to do with any design element. ...

1/1/11 Happy New Year everyone! Not only is this another year for LumberJocks.com but I, personally, am about to hit my fourth year here (thanks for the reminder, Gary). Someone (Jim) has suggested that it would be great to hear from the members who have been here from the beginnings (or close to it). What a great idea. So, to all you “old-timers”, share your thoughts on LumberJocks.com and how you’ve seen it grow over the years.
Ok, so let me get this blog started before I get so far behind that I put it off – forever. It is undisputed that the most important tool in the woodworking shop is a proper workbench. I don’t have one. I will not rehash the nuances of workbench design but after reading Schwarz’s and Scott Landis’s books, I had my heart set on a Roubo bench. I am not alone as several LJ’s have posted wonderful roubo benches. At first I wanted to build this… I r...
