New Yankee Blanket Chest #10: Painted and Finished

01-24-2011 05:38 AM by HungryTermite | 8 comments »

I put 4 coats of flat dove white paint on the outside and 4 coats of satin wipe-on poly on the inside, except for the cedar on the bottom which is unfinished. I think the flat paint was a bad idea. It seems to get dirty if I even look at it funny. Some day I will probably use this chest as a test run for doing some stencil work so maybe that will cover up or blend in some of the dirt. Overall view: View with the lid open: View showing the cedar lining: I also used two of these ...

52 Weeks #3: Week 3- Well I got something built.

01-24-2011 03:37 AM by clieb91 | 3 comments »

Greeting All, Well Week 3 did not go entirely as planned. My daughter and I only got one of the 6 trucks completely finished. We did glue up the basics to all six and also got almost done with a moving van which will be going to someone hopefully get it finished this week as next week is a majorly hectic. As you can see from the pics we got the firetruck completely finished, this was a request from my nephew so he will be getting it for his birthday in a few weeks. Sophia helped with j...

It has been quite an interesting experience for me to have discovered the Lumberjocks site. The diversity of skills and fascinating people around the world have intrigued me greatly. I’ve mentioned the subject of “heritage” wood a few times. “New” wood is one thing.. It’s already old when it’s cut when you consider the age of the tree, but it has different characteristics from aged wood that was milled long ago, The mellowness of the wood and the p...

New year, new direction

01-24-2011 01:44 AM by sawblade1 | 2 comments »

Good evening LJ’s, I recently was looking at my blog and realized I hadn’t posted this blog in 67 days !!! I meant it as a weekly blog, but several deaths of close friends, and my aunt have kept me from posting. Quite frankly I just didn’t feel like it. As I look at my last blog of my templates that I made I realized I have accomplished a lot in just 67 days. Since I last posted I have finally Secured a lumber supplier for my western red cedar. I have a funny little s...

Long grain shooting board idea

01-23-2011 11:03 PM by Beezle | 3 comments »

I tend to use hand tools when I can. This is primarily because I like working that way. Quieter, less dust, more feel for what I am doing. And more satisfaction for some reason. But I am not dedicated to it per se, I just enjoy it. Not having all of the larger machines a typical shop would have – in this case a table saw – I often find myself needing to square the long edge of a board. So I began using planes to do this. For larger boards I will use a jointer with a fence attac...

If you have been watching any of the news about this , you should have some of a opinion. I look back at the days growing up and I wish that my parents had give me more, Especially when it come to school, I did as little as I had to , just to get through school ,, and over the years I regret that I didn’t do better, but now it’s kind of late at 55 years young. I had the discipline to stay out of trouble and have never be in any encounter with the law, I’m self employed for ...

Slow boat to China - Unexpected surprises in Africa

01-23-2011 06:13 PM by Div | 14 comments »

Lumberjocks has introduced me to a number of new experiences and pleasures. One of them is the concept of cyberspace friendship. I became friends with people I have never met simply through PM’s! Last weekend I found a box at the Post Office that had come all the way from America…I couldn’t wait to get home so I could open it! And what was inside…? A brand new copy of the book, “The soul of the tree”, by George Nakashima. A book that I have wanted for a very long time! I first read some...
