I am new to this so bare with me. When I first discovered all the information about woodworking on the internet I was really overwhelmed. When I saw everyones shops with Powermatic and Delta tools I felt like I had a substandard shop. I have mostly tools from yard sales and flea markets. In 1986 I bought a new Shopsmith Mark V 500. Which I love and still have. I also have another one that I have rebuilt. Everyone on Lumber Jocks has made me feel so welcome. I have posted 3 projects and all th...
Cedar Chests My latest project is the construction of two solid Cedar blanket chests. The inspiration for this project came from a traditional source, my wife. After another summer of moths eating tiny holes in her winter sweaters she made the suggestion that it would be good to have a Cedar Chest to store her sweaters. I was not enthusiastic because I have built other chest and I was thinking of building something new. But, just a couple of days later a colleague at work approached me about ...

Although I took it quite slow yesterday, I did accomplish a few things. I planned on taking a nap in the afternoon, but I was involved in other things and I forgot. That was a good sign. I finished working on the drawings for the gingerbread candle try. The first tray I did was all gingerbread men. But then I looked at it and thought that he looked lonely so I altered the patterns to make him a girlfriend. I decided to include both designs in the pattern as some people have daughters...
So I finally finished the router cabinet today!!! About 50 man hours + later! P.S. I will never shop at HD again even if it’s closer to my house I went there to pick up some simple drawer pulls, saw the ones I wanted, there was only one type, one tub of them, one display…. so I grabbed 5 of them. Later in the day I installed the first one fine, installed the second and put both drawers in, took a couple steps back to see what it looked like…........... they were both d...
I made this birdhouse for an elderly woman friend. I will paint it off-white and my wife will paint one-stroke flowers on to it. This was more difficult than I thought. Lots of angles and I don’t have an accurate way to measure the angles on my table saw. So I had to creep up on what I wanted and still there are gaps here and there. Lessons learned: cut mirrored items together, measure and cut as I go.
So I have a couple days of not having time to play or work however you choose to look at it ( I personally view it as therapy ) before I can start another project. This started me thinking as my last project was easy but was also my first box, which as I look at the projects on here seems to be a common woodworking project, what are common projects that woodworkers feel are either good learning projects or projects that are essential to at least try if one is serious in their pursuit of woodw...
Hey Lumberjocks! I’ve grown to love making Intarsia, and it’s much easier to make than it looks. I decided to let others see just how easy intarsia can be. I put together this 7 part video series on how to make a simple Intarsia sea shell so that those that might want to try can at least get a nice taste of it. Once you have the basics down, than you can take on just about any Intarsia pattern there is. Click on the picture below to go to the 7 part series and also get a free p...
Hello fellow LJ’s There is nothing better than thicknessing nice wood. You put a piece of rough timber in at one end and see the figure pop out at the other end….It’s magic !! http://youtu.be/DnilDorrvL4
When i first designed these cabinets I really wanted to have them look like peices of furniture as opposed to cabinets. The posts go a long way in achieving that look, but I figured taking out the kickplates would really seal the deal. I had thought about the dust bunny conundrum. I figured if dusting underneath the cabinets became too much for my wife and I, I could always add kickplates later without any trouble. I’ve designed my kitchen like my workshop since I do most of the coo...
