Roubo #4: 3 bags of chips later...

03-15-2009 11:29 PM by Jon3 | 4 comments »

I started yesterday grabbing all of the appropriate width and length stock out of my stash. I used up nearly every 8 foot piece I had. I could have easily done it with 7 footers, but I decided, if this is the ‘Last bench I’m going to make.’ (until I find a better one) then I ought not to short-change myself. Here I am midway through the process. I didn’t take a great deal of photos, because, by the time you’re on LJ, you’ve probably already surfac...

shop construction #2: back to the beginning

12-22-2009 08:32 AM by papaj | 4 comments »

This is going bacwards a little since I found the pics from the beginning of the project. What got me started on actually building the new shop was my boat project. Here is a pic of my boat project under the carport I was using to protect the build. You can see my small garage in the pic. So, down with the old and up with the new. Deconstruction begins. The old garage was built in 1942. I donated 95% of the materials to Reconstructed. I kept some of the pieces for myself to inco...

Ronin Woodworking #8: TSDC 2010 Build Challenge Cont..

09-07-2010 07:31 PM by spaids | 4 comments »

Here you can see what I’m thinking as I experiment with design and dimensions. I think the thin versions are too thin but also the thick versions are MUCH to thick. I didn’t see just how too thick they were until they were next to versions that were to thin. I am also on the fence about how I’m gong to mount the top. I have decided that I will use figure eight clips and screw the top to the base. I’m leaning toward the version where the top supports are crossing ...

Teaching the Building of a Powder Horn with Scrimshaw Engraving at the John Campbell Folk School

05-05-2011 04:45 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 4 comments »

Since posting my work on Lumberjocks, I have received a huge number of requests for help and advice on the building of powder horns and doing the scrimshaw artwork to decorate the horn. And, honestly, I can’t really help everyone, as I have to work in the shop myself, so I have accepted an invitation to teach a Powder Horn Building and Scrimshaw Decoration Class at the John Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC. The date will be mid-July in 2012, and it is planned for a five day cla...

Wooden Boat Challenge: Champions 3 years running

04-29-2013 11:57 PM by Dan Lyke | 4 comments »

I mentioned winning the 2011 Bodega Bay Fisherman's Festival Wooden Boat Challenge, and for some reason missed last year. Which is a shame, because last year's competition was awesome, and we trained with a group of high school guys who built a boat that floated and got around the course, and, of course, we won it. Though not without effort, there was a team that build a 20+’ outrigger canoe, as they were building we were thinking “there’s no way they’re going t...

Eureka! Receipt says what wood I bought!

07-08-2009 05:16 AM by thiel | 4 comments »

The other day I enthusiastically bought some fancy wood since I was making small stuff and wanted to try out some other material. And then I promptly forgot what I bought. The receipt appears: —Bolivian Rosewood—Figured Santos Mahogany (“Bee’s wings” I think)—Mesquite (knew that) Any tips for working with these beauties? I’ve already resawed them down to get bookmatched 1/2 inch boards…. The mahogany in particular seems a bit brittl...

Going Pro as a Woodworker Part 1 - The Dark Side

03-07-2010 02:44 AM by Charles Brock | 4 comments »

Since I started my woodworking publishing and education company after retiring as a school teacher company, I have been living a dream working daily as a professional woodworker. This series taken from my website’s (Build A Maloof Inspired Rocker) blog will share some of those experiences and give some advice to those who are pros or thinking about the day! I was traveling before six in the morning recently, on my way to do a personal appearance as a woodworker. There was a big chan...
