Work(shop) in Progress #14: Greasy Business (wasn't mine, but it is NOW)

09-23-2010 04:46 AM by PurpLev | 12 comments »

Did not post this as a project although it IS a woodworking finished project – yet not made by me. I got a little package in the mail yesterday, and inside was awaiting quietly this little gem: made and sent to me by none other than LJ blackcherry Thank you very much Wilson! This will be allocated to my tool cabinet and shall be put to use often. My main uses for this would be to wax my handplanes metal bodies and soles after use to keep it from developing surface rust (used T9...

Tapered Display Tower - beetle-kill pine #3: It's dry ... and it's fits. I call it ...

09-23-2010 01:01 AM by NBeener | 17 comments »

a dry fit ! Let’s start with today’s inspiration: a peanut butter cookie, half of which was dipped in chocolate. Uh. Yum ! The “not-so-secret” secret drawer ;-) It’s got feet ! A shelf…. The top…. Got some band saw work, ahead of me, to cut out the fake tenons and wedges. Soon, though. Very soon. Thanks for looking :-)

Anyone have any info on the HF 6” Jointer? there is a used one for sale locally for 100 bucks and just don’t know enough about them – this would be my first jointer.

The great Lumberjocks shoe challenge #2: 20 hours later and the shoes are flying

09-22-2010 10:21 PM by Jordan | 27 comments »

Well, well, it’s only been twenty hours since I put this challenge to the Lumberjocks and who woulda thunk it but closet doors are open and the shoes are flying, trying to select the one most appropriate for this challenge. And in true form, the Lumberjocks are abuzz to each other, offering wood, links to tool websites and mustering up all the courage they can to be included in a task that might seem beyond their capabilities. Well done friends, you are not alone. At this fine ho...

So I have been buying books, tools and reading like a crazy to solve this little wonder ‘the dovet...

Picture Frames #2: progress

09-22-2010 09:02 PM by Camper | 2 comments »

I had a little more time to work on the picture frames. Now cut to final dimensions and mitered. The pictures are below. I think the miters turned out pretty decent (better than I expected for a first timer). I used a miter cutting jig by Niki which is fairly easy to make. I had my suspicions that the jig was not built well but proved myself wrong. The frame clamping strap from woodcraft for $1.75 works great!! :) I also applied some danish oil on half of a scrap piece and there is a...
