So April was National woodworking month. I have not had much time to get into the shop but have had a bit of time to celebrate this fact.During a visit of some family in the early part of the month I got to talk to them and show them some videos about woodworking, also got a chance to work with them and their girls and Sophia on the monthly Home depot Project. It was too cold and busy to stay at the Home Depot so we brought the projects home and worked in the garage, it was big hit. ...
This week I used the band saw to cut an angle on the lags. Then sand the cut part flat with the belt sander. Then the lags and end aperons flat on the table. Then lined them up and score them together. Then turn both parts on the side. I grab the rail and lade it flat. Then level the two parts with the rail and screw them together. Then measured the bottom part of the railing 4 inches down to screw the lower railing.
Welcome back everyone. I must say again that I did not realize how many steps to this until doing this blog. I am not sorry I have made so many of these knives as they have paid a bunch toward buying my shop tools plus I still like the challenge of making each one better. Enough philosophy on with the show.If you plan on signing or dating now is the time. I do mine with a cheap wood burner. Now glue the spring assy. to the handle assys. And important point here is to put the back clamp on ...
Hello lumber jock community. I’d love some advise and pics if possible on this. I’ve been asked to build a conference room table for a small company. I’m on a low budget but want to obviously make a quality top. I made the pedestals already but struggling with the top and budget. My thoughts are to either join oak 3/4” 6X8’s together or a sheet of oak ply and join butter board ends. I was going to pocket hole and glue everything together and case it with 1X3 o...
I’m calling it a folded cube because it’s supposed to look folded, and it’s a cube. I’m open to better names :) Made this table/stool with my daughter. No finish yet as it was due this morning and we didn’t start until late afternoon yesterday. It was one her design school projects. The design and design process are what’s important. I think it turned out very well considering all the miters. The top has 4 sides mitered. Four of the leg pieces have 3...
I had the pieces made for the doors. Next I had to get plywood for the center of the doors. I cut the plywood to the correct dimensions and made sure that it was a good fit. Next I decided to stain the outsides of the door. When they get three coats of stain I will assemble the doors and glue them, adding on my poly to the whole door.
https://youtu.be/fPf5VXlwekQ Hi there folks! Just thought I’d share with you all my latest project, where I make a sign for my workshop out of an old cutting board. The finished piece is not perfect, but neither is my woodworking!! Hope you enjoy!
A week into this project I have made some advancement. Two lower shelves were constructed and lots of hand sanding was done. Next will be the pieces that hold the fishing rods in place.
I am in the market for a new Band saw. My budget is 650 to 750. What is best for my money? Or should I blow the budget and go higher? I am replacing an old Delta. No sure how old it is. It was a hand me down. What do you think. Thanks
Well, it’s been a while since i have been on LumberJocks. I have been very busy with the military for the last couple of years. However, I have continued to do wood working. Hopefully, many of you enjoy my upcoming posts of projects that I have done in the last couple of years. I know that I have enjoyed making them immensely.
