I recently stumbled upon something that I had heard about before, but never gave any thought to until I actually saw one – cigar box guitars. I’m a musician and I always wondered how I could ever combine woodworking with my 1st passion as a musician. I’ve looked into being a luthier, but after watching some videos decided that I would need a little more skill as a woodworker first and a few more tools. After seeing some information about cigar box guitars I decided that t...
In this video I show you how I make a very simple, but very solid re-sawing fence for my band saw. For more videos and content like this visit:http://www.JordsWoodShop.comhttp://www.facebook.com/JordsWoodShop
I’ve been a woodworker for 25 years, but I’ve never written about my experiences. Like many of you, I too tired of always digging out my miter saw, lifting it up on my Black & Decker Workmate, using it, only to put it back down on the ground so I could use the work surface for something else. I decided to make a stand for the miter saw, and started browsing a number of articles in either Woodsmith, Popular Woodworking or Woodworkers Journal. There were lots of ideas, but it...
Not touched the scroll saw in 2 weeks!But I am making progress in getting some shop made equipment done. So Sunday was busy reworking two old dental lab motors that have sat in my garage for 8 yrs! One was an OLD polisher/grinder that had some scary wiring and the other was a model trimmer that will be converted into a disk sander.I took a power cord from a computer we recycled and wired it into the switch and the grinder was running great. It was fun as my 11 yr old helped strip wires and...
Here was an easy project that I did recently; a Hummingbird Feeder. You only need one board for this project and it’s something you can build in a few hours. Here is my attempt at making a video of how I made it, and as always you can check out my website at: www.woodlogger.com to see more projects and videos of what I’m doing in the shop.
I lost my dad to lung cancer almost two years ago. His passion was his talent of working with wood which I am going to miss tremendously. Because I was such a fan of his work and my husband also enjoys tinkering with wood, my dad left his wood working tools to me. After his Joiner & Planer have set in my garage for 1 1/2 years, I have made the decision to sell them to someone who will be able to use and enjoy them as much as he did. Although after he purchased them, he became ill so t...
Hers another pic, but it seems when I try to add more than 1 pic in the blog they dont appear in preview. Im not sure if this is a lumberjock limitation, or tech issue with the linking site. So it appears im only being allowed to post one pic per blog. Hopefully im doing something wrong, and I can get beyond this limitation soon.The measurements are as follows 9 1/2 inches long. 2 inches wide, and 5 inches tall with the adjustable lever being the highest ref point. Its small, and has a very g...
I often look over all the new projects displayed here on LumberJocks and think how lucky all of you really are to have the talent to be able to make so many and beautiful peices of ART. I have worked with wood for over 30 years now, everything from construction, finish carpenter, cabinate maker, craftsman and now wood burning. Many of you have seen many of my peices of work but several have not been posted. I have produce over 300 pictures in the last couple of years, and try and do alittle m...
Well folks the first project for Upper Cut Woodworks is done and delivered. This marks the end of the blog series “Starting Upper Cut Woodworks.” The latest post with pictures of the final project are on my blog, here.
Having the bulk of pieces, cut and sanded, I elected to tape and pre finish most of the components. Finishing large projects is a huge challenge for me as I work in a 3 car garage and can not easily spray stuff. Since I was finishing many large panels, I decided to try applying the clear coat with a floor roller. Since I like their other products, I decided to use a Zinsser water based poly. It worked as well as brushing does, however, the coats go on thick and you need to watch the rol...
