Thank you all for the warm welcome. It is nice to meet some fellow woodworkers. I have been wood working for over 40 years and finally with retiring I can spend more time in teh woodshop. Looking forward to looking at your work and sharing some of mind.

Juniper One Board Project Competition #3: tenons on the legs and stretchers; leg subassembly & final glueup

01-14-2011 01:05 AM by Lee Barker | 0 comments »

Juniper would appear to be a hard wood based on its response to nature. It’s actually quite soft. The tenons, cut on the same tenon cutter setup as the floating top table parts, weren’t as true as I wanted. On the plus side, the soft wood fibers tore some in the tenon process and likewise the mortising (hole boring, actually) so the slip fit was smoother than the cherry, which was too snug. I glued up a subassembly of the two legs with the shorter stretcher. Dry fit told ...

Cedar Tree journey #1: The find

01-13-2011 09:10 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 4 comments »

It’s easy for me to run down the road to the lumber yard or big box store to pick up some wood for a project or build. However, I am very interested in the process from log to lumber and i would like to someday be able to mill my own lumber. With some financial restraints, buying a portable mill or chainsaw milling attachment is not an option at this time, but luckily I found a local woodshop that will mill your log for you. I got a call about a Cedar Tree that a gentleman took dow...

Wow. Received quite a few welcome messages over the past few days. Just wanted to say Thank you for the welcome, and I hope to have a few useful items to add in the future. Most of my work for the past 1 1/2 years has been remodeling our house. I’m currently building new kitchen cabnets and learning a few new skills in the process, most recently rail and style doors. I’ll try and post a few pictures in the coming days of some of my mistake free projects.

Upcoming projects and designs. #12: Now that the workshop is clean, the upcoming projects list...

01-13-2011 08:08 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

Now that I have the shop clean, and I won’t kill myself, or my family working out there, I have a list of stuff that I need to get done (in the shop, there are other projects but not woodworking neccesarily that need done too!). #1. Wiring the shop with a sub panel, and at least a 60 amp main, 3 20 amp circuits. 1 for climate control (heat / ac), 1 for dust collection, and 1 for the running tool. That should be sufficient for my shop setup. #2. Insulate the walls to keep from lett...

Owning your own business (Post #11) How I make my beds (Part 2)

01-13-2011 07:30 PM by nate22 | 3 comments »

Well it has been awhile since I was on here last. Last time I starting telling you and showing you how I made my loft beds. Here is how I make the rest of it. After I have everything cut out then I put the rails togeter for the sides of the bed. Then I start putting the ends together by glueing all the dole pins into the 2×4’s. Then I put the ends together with the 1×4’s that I cut out. After that I attach the legs to the ends and put a support piece at the end so ...

Evolution of a Shop #14: 2 years on Lumberjocks

01-13-2011 07:29 PM by Cory | 3 comments »

I was just noticing that I’ve been an official LJ for 2 years now. Man. I’ve learned so much from all of you, so thank you. Thank you for all the great comments and advice. Thank you for the never ending supply of inspiration. Just, thank you. I also noticed that I haven’t posted a project in 122 days. Really? I’ve certainly been a busy boy over the last 122 days. I don’t have pictures of everything, but here’s some of what I’ve built: -...

Workshop Development #14: Camcorder is charged up, tripod is ready, need to shoot and edit...

01-13-2011 06:39 PM by dbhost | 4 comments »

And I am hoping to get my fellow LJs inputs here. I really am starting to like how I have the tools laid out, and although DC tubing adjustments need to be made (blast gates aren’t exactly where I want them), I am close enough to call it good for now… So what I have left to be concerned about is power. I have only 1 15 amp outlet (20 amp breaker) in the shop. For the longest time, I have been running an extension cord in to the laundry room to power the tools, and run the DC off o...

New video feed

01-13-2011 05:13 PM by Chris Davis | 9 comments »

I am trying out a new video feed. The service I was using before and have been using for years just kept adding ads and then got to the point to where they’d put a commercial on the videos and the feed at start-up. Most of the commercials I didn’t like. I felt they were inappropriate. One car company ad kept using foul language, even though it was being bleeped It was still known what was there. I even tried to trick the system into using more kid friendly ads by putting ta...

It is that time of year again.

01-13-2011 04:33 PM by Rustic | 7 comments »

Well as the new year begins, I am compelled (by SWMBO) to clean the shop. As I am cleaning I am also rearranging everything. I am on my 3rd day. I am also going to put my router table upon wheels. I moved my cut off bin to underneath my wood rack (just mad sense). So that is what I have been up to lately. I can’t wait to get my shop back in order. Oh, I almost forgot…I am going to be joining a carving guild in my area too. I went to Woodcraft to spend my gift card and just asked i...
