Planing #1: Planing Quarter Sawn Oak with Heavy Ray Flecks

12-22-2010 11:02 PM by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

When planing S2S lumber, I usually look for the grain slope to avoid tearout. On flat sawn oak this is pretty easy to see. Lately I have been planing some quarter sawn red oak that has heavy flecks like QSWO. You really cannot see the grain direction on this stock. But you can feel it. I found that the lumber is like fish scales – smooth when you feel it in one direction, and rough the other direction. If I take the time to orient the board so it would feel smooth to my hand as it...

Atlanta Woodworkers: Great place to buy wood on the South Side

12-22-2010 10:19 PM by PocketHole69 | 10 comments »

I’ve done a little complaining recently about how I was treated at a big box store, so I wanted to balance the karma out and tell everyone who might not know about a great place to buy wood on the south side of Atlanta. Atlanta north side people have it made- Woodcraft, Rockler, Peachtree Woodworking are all up there. For us on the south side, its an hour drive just go get there and we have to fight Atlanta traffic both ways to boot. Hardwoods Inc. in Atlanta is even worse- it̵...

Corner Inlay Table #6: Update - table resized, moving on

12-22-2010 05:27 PM by Rick | 0 comments »

The original table top is resized – meaning inlay and botched bevel is cut away, squared back up and cut to shape and size, inlay is laid out, and the “nesting” idea is in full swing. My wife likes this idea, so now, since we were going to have TWO corner tables for different spots, we are now having TWO NESTED pair. How did recovering from a mistake end up in FOUR TIMES THE WORK? (That’s how I explain it to her. To me, it’s 4x the reason to be in the sh...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #202: Reality Check

12-22-2010 02:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I am sitting here this morning and having a difficult time getting started writing. Not because I have little to say, but quite the opposite. The problem being that what is going through my mind aren’t all pleasant or positive thoughts, but actually a rather harsh and realistic look at things and my business in general. I have posted in this series for over 200 consecutive days now, and when I began this blog, I decided that this journal of my business and how it affects my daily l...

My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture #6: All cleaned up.

12-22-2010 08:38 AM by Don | 6 comments »

The gorilla glue squeeze out was much easier to clean up that I expected but I could still kick myself for not applying masking tape before I saw the drips starting. It would have saved me a couple hours of work. I’m really enjoying my time off from work and being able to spend my days in my shop instead of my office and I’m making some great progress. In the last few days I’ve accomplished the following: 1. Frames fully trimed and cleaned up. I just need to do the ebo...

Another day, another nickle #26: gettin' a little rain down here

12-22-2010 07:09 AM by Thos. Angle | 21 comments »

Just thought I’d take a minute and say,” MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR ” to all my old friends here at Lumber Jocks. It’s been a strange year for Carleen and I but we are sure glad to be in Southern California instead of where all that winter is. I’m sure all this rain will soon be over and we will be back to the sunshine for which this part of the world is famous. I wish I could spend some time in my shop and build a little something but such is not the cas...

Patio table, steel structure with wooden table top

12-22-2010 07:01 AM by DrTebi | 5 comments »

If you don’t feel like reading through all of this, please just scroll down to “Table Top Questions”! I took a welding/metal arts class at the “Academy of Art” last semester, and was intrigued by traditional blacksmith methods. I found these in many ways very similar to woodworking techniques, and decided to make a arts and crafts like table with a hand forged steel base and a wooden top. My idea was to imitate woodworking mortise and tenon joints, as you c...
