Christmas projects #1: Christmas Presents.

12-27-2010 07:29 PM by tt1106 | 4 comments »

Well, I missed the Christmas deadline, but my daughters were still very pleased. My wife and I decided and told everybody last year that we were only giving gifts that we made. This was prompted by my daughters (3) all asking for shopping money. It was important to my wife and I that they know what the true meaning of Christmas is and to be thnakful for the many gifts they have been blessed with over the years. Namely, never going hungry….always having a roof over their heads…e...

1st Anniversary

12-27-2010 06:43 PM by Don | 18 comments »

One year ago today I joined Lumber Jocks with the expectation that it was just another woodworking site. Within one day I had received 8 welcome messages from different members. I expected to get the usual automated welcome message from the site but to have actual people welcoming me aboard made it clear that this was not just another site that I would probobly soon forget. Then I started posting projects and getting even more feedback. I was hooked, LJs had become my primary woodworking site...

Great Woodworking Videos #1: Amazing Videos of a Master Japanese Craftsman at work

12-27-2010 06:39 PM by Blake | 41 comments »

I was clicking around the net when I came across these videos. They are some of the best videos I’ve ever found of a real Japanese craftsman using traditional techniques to build a project from start to finish. In this series of 5 videos he builds a beautiful small chest of drawers (most likely a jewelry box) using only hand tools. I am in awe at how the techniques he uses are so simple yet so effective. I wish I spoke Japanese. If anyone could repost these videos translated to engli...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #207: Aftermath

12-27-2010 02:45 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

I feel like I have been on vacation for a month! I am not sure why, because I was doing things all the time. Lots of them had to do with the business too. But I suppose the main focus was getting my personal stuff done and really enjoying the holiday. And that I did. I have been wishing for snow for the last several days now. Having a beautiful white blanket during the holidays just sets the mood right for me. We have received nothing but a couple of light flurries which dusted the l...

Panel Bed #1: Design

12-27-2010 11:40 AM by Silvo | 1 comment »

So for Christmas I received a couple of additions to my woodworking line up with some clear expectations from the family to start cranking out some projects. For starters I figured I would build the wife a new king bed. We have a metal bed frame and all wood furniture. The wife wants a wood bed that goes with the rest of the set. The bed is going to be painted black so I will be building it out of poplar and birch. I’m not 100% confident in the design so far. I looked at some pict...
