Greene and Greene inspired raised dog tray #7: Attaching the breadboard ends and plugging all the pinned mortises/breadboard screws

06-11-2012 12:44 AM by Eric_S | 4 comments »

Took me a while to get back to this project. It’s been a hectic past few months. All that was remaining was plugging all the pinned mortises, attaching the breadboard ends, and plugging those screws as well. Plugging the legs—————————-Plugging the pinned mortises was a real pain in the ass. I wish I had a mortiser as they would have all been identical in size. Instead, I had to custom fit every single plug. I used a 1/2&#...

To stain or not to stain #1: Love me some stain

06-26-2012 12:57 AM by Mike Merzke | 4 comments »

So I’m starting another project for a going away plague for a fellow Soldier. It will be a shadow box with two crossed replica harpers ferry pistols… felt backdrop… a couple other features. I’m making it out of Red Oak… and now I’m at that critical point of to stain or put a natural finish. Well I already think I’ve made my choice on this project but would love to hear what others have to say.

Family tools and my first tool gloat!

11-17-2012 01:44 PM by RaggedKerf | 4 comments »

Just before we left on our trip, my parents came up from Florida to visit in the last week in October. With them, besides lots of laughs and smiles and good times with the grandkids, they brought me some of my Dad’s tools that had been collecting dust down in the sunshine state. He decided that since he wasn’t really doing anything with them, he’d rather see them in my shop making sawdust rather than collecting dust. Who am I to argue with the wisdom of my father? Espe...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #973: Busy Weekend Ahead

03-01-2013 12:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Again, I am going to make this a short post. With everything being as busy as it is, you would think that I would have a great deal to share with everyone. However, the things that we have been doing involves working on the ‘guts’ of the business and there isn’t much to really show you. I am still writing though, because I need to stress the importance of this type of maintenance on your businesses. While it isn’t glamorous and may not be as fun and exciting as s...

DeWalt Scroll Saw #1: My first scroll saw

04-15-2013 02:39 AM by Jerome | 4 comments »

After cutting out several letters and other objects. I found that my Dremel Trio was not the best tool to do my bidding. It was very time consuming sanding and clamping pieces a surface in order to get the job done. I had some scroll saw experience , some 20 years ago, but I knew I had to pick one up. I read several reviews here on LJ and watched many youtube videos. I did not want to spend $500 on a scroll saw, but I do have a woodworking principle, “buy quality onceR...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1289: Some Great Sources for the Products I Use

04-10-2014 12:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Among other things, I finished my little bunny ornaments up yesterday. They were pretty much done yesterday, save for the fact that I needed to apply hangers to them so I could use them on my little ‘all season’ tree for the spring. I must admit – I sometimes get lax with keeping my tree decorated for the season. While I seem to keep up with the fall and winter themes, I don’t do as well for the spring and summer seasons. But after the kind of winter we had here (l...

Hello!

09-28-2007 09:00 PM by johnjoiner | 4 comments »

Hi Lumberjocks! Just a quick first post here as I’m on lunch break. This looks like a cool site, which means there must be bunch of cool people behind it. Although I don’t have anything specific in mind, I intend to post some real content here in the near future. But, the struggle I have then is it would mean more time sitting at a computer (what I do all day at work) and not at the bench. Oh well. LJ looks to be very informative and inspirational. And the process of th...

Workbench #1: Leg Vise

11-18-2007 03:03 AM by Randy Klein | 4 comments »

What do you get when you cross a cast iron vise with a leg vise? After reading Chris Schwarz’s new book on Workbenches, I got inspired to try out a leg vise. I didn’t have a vise screw to use, but did have one of those run-of-the-mill cast iron vises that was doing a pathetic job in the tail vise position. So I crossed the two and added it to my soon-to-replaced-by-a-Roubo-style workbench. And this is what I got. I must say, I really like the leg vise. I got some more to do ...
