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
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.
Finally did a bit of work on the wedge and a blade. The wedge was fashioned from a piece of Jacaranda (light cream/pink in colour). A nice contrast to the deep red/brown of the body. In shaping the wedge, I ensured initially that there was an even distribution of loading along the length of the blade from the wedge, however, I then dished out a very small hollow (micro hollow) from the bearing surface of the wedge to put more emphasis of loading to both ends of the wedge over the blade. This ...

I have a Craftsman jointer/planer that has a model number of 113.232211 this wasn’t the standard model. the motor is mounted inside the main part of the jointer. I cant find a manual or information on when the thing was built. it works great though and I am not disappointed I bought it.
I’ve decided to use my friends scroll saw for making the pieces for this project and to mimic the chess pieces from: GaryK I found a great book at the local woodcraft store about scrollsawing chessmen, I’ll have to pick it up next time for shape ideas. I’ll make sure to post some pictures when I do. Sadly I’ve exhausted all of the woodworking books at Borders and Barnes & Nobles, durring the past few sit-down sessions. On a positive note I was able to get ...
Well this started last fall when the shop class at the HS I teach in poured the slab. Since they were building two garages and the other on belongs to the superintendent…guess which one has walls and a roof. The slab is 20’ X 20’ and will join with my old garage. I’m hoping this spring they will get back to me and I can make some updates as we go along. I also included a picture of the current garage/workshop and you can see that things are pretty tight in there.
Hi all… I just thought I’d jump in and start posting a few pictures of my current project. I’m not a seasoned woodworker by ANY means, though I’ve always secretly held a desire to learn woodworking. I live with my wife and son sharing a house with her parents. They were originally supposed to move out and let us take over the house, but when their project to buy a new house became a project to buy some empty land to “someday maybe” build a house on,...
