Built-In Library Wall #4: Project Wrap-Up

02-18-2014 04:16 PM by Cindy Braunheim | 3 comments »

It’s now February and the project was installed and completed in November of 2013. I have since recovered and have five new projects lined up, one being my own Master Bedroom Closet, which has been waiting for three years now… But I digress. The Built in Library Wall is by far the most involved piece I’ve ever built. What a blast!

The League of Awesome Gram'parents

03-02-2015 02:11 PM by handsawgeek | 3 comments »

From the first day I joined LumberJocks, I have seen tons of posts showing really neat wood toys and other projects that members have lovingly made for their grandkids. Being blessed with a couple of my own, I can say that I’m proud to be part of that group of folks! For me, time spent in the shop building stuff for the wee ones has always been one of the most gratifying facets of woodworking. Here’s the latest…. This is the small slot car set that was presented to the grandkids...

Building my version of the Essential Tool Chest #5: Drawers

03-06-2015 01:54 AM by johnstoneb | 3 comments »

Yesterday and today were relatively productive for the most part. I got the dovetails cut on the three drawers. I cut these with a PC 4200 series dovetail jig. The front is attached with halfblind dovetails. These are usually the easiest to setup and cut but for some reason I had a hard time setting things up. and when I cut them two came out tighter than I like two were right on and two were a little loose. I don’t know why nothing moved. The through dovetails on the rear of the...

Craftsman Tablesaw tune-up #1: The Tools you'll need & getting started

03-21-2015 05:19 AM by B4B | 3 comments »

So a couple weeks ago I pulled my trusty old craftsman tablesaw out from winter storage to give it a tune-up, check the alignment and such. It is stored in the back of my carport, which is covered and has a small shed, but there are critters that get in there, and the temperature changes and humidity can cause rust. Uh-oh, the tilt wheel would not tilt the arbor assembly. So I did what every self-respecting lumberjock has done with their Craftsman tablesaw and proceeded to pull it apart. R...

Tae Kwon Do Belt Rack #3: Making the parts

05-09-2015 07:11 PM by CharlieK | 3 comments »

The design called for a stretcher piece between the carved medallion and the back board that supports the belts. I thought a through tenon with a wedge on the outside of the column would look really cool. I wasn’t up for making a true through tenon between the round and tapered columns so I decided to make fake through tenons. After I fit the stretcher to the inside of the columns I marked where the “tenons” would come through the columns and cut a mortise. After t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1555: Smaller Bites

05-19-2015 11:38 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Not everyone likes the same things. I know I am stating the obvious, but sometimes, as much as we do realize it, we forget that.I am no different. I see something I like and I find myself assuming that everyone I meet will like it as well. Be it food, a movie or even artwork or techniques. But having a partner like Keith helps keep me looking at things using realistic eyes. He and I are very opposite in our tastes and preferences. There is an old saying that 'opposites attract' and I ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1560: Multi-Tasking

05-26-2015 10:24 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I am going to post quickly today (really!) because I have much to do. I have been working on cutting the wood kits that were ordered for my haunted carousel and I spent much of the day doing that. I was happy with how things went. I did everything in a nice, organized way and it made things pleasant and I got lots done in not too much time. Yesterday was cutting all the large circular parts for the carousel. Any scroller can tell you that cutting circles can be a challenge. You would thi...
