1160 days ago by dedalo | 2 comments »

I’m glad I did not rush to the worcenter, I changed my mind a lot using the saw on every step, so the final project keeps changing. After working a little with the saw in the last configuration I took the decition to sale it and buy a new saw, the main reasons where 1.- it was a piece of crap2.- the miter...

1075 days ago by Woodbutchery | 2 comments »

I was in my home page on LJ when I noticed comments congratulating me on my 2nd anniversary … 379 days ago. Three years. When I first popped into this site, I had a table saw, circular saw, and a router, and no further ambition than to learn a few more things about woodworking.

844 days ago by Brett | 2 comments »

Hi Lumberjockeys, Here is the 2nd part of my gas can gee’tar build. I think that I will make the deadline for getting this thing complete to give to my Brother-in-law on Easter Sunday. If it doesn’t sound too good, at least it will be unique. I sure do hope that it makes a decent sound. We will see. I hope that you get something from this. Thanks for watching and if anyone has any suggestions on how else I can dress this thing up, let me know. I appreciate your comment...

"adirondack chair making" #1: my first adirondack chair was made in 1995, now two decades later, I am still at it

169 days ago by paperclip | 2 comments »

when I was a freshman in high school (1995), I won the end of the year award for woodshop when I produced an Adirondack Chair. Now 2014, I am still at it. I only get better and better at them. Now I am giving them some Texas, southwestern, rustic flare with a cut-out the shape of the state. I now make Adirondack chairs on a weekly basis mostly for therapy. But I sell them too. In post(s) to follow I will explain more about Adirondack chair making.
