As you probably noticed, we have hit an impressive milestone just a few hours ago. Total number of comments on LumberJocks exceeded 1,000,000 – yes that’s ONE MILLION! This number has been reached in 1694 days since the February, 2006 when the site was launched. That’s around 4.6 years of steady growth. As they say, picture is worth a thousand words.. well in this case it’s a nice little chart: I’d like to thank all of you for making this happen and I hope...

Quick plane makeover

10-18-2010 10:22 PM by hannes | 5 comments »

I was away for a long weekend in August on the garden route, just relaxing and taking a break. While driving around my wife wanted to check out an antique shop near George. Antique shops are not really my thing, but sometimes you see interesting furniture and always interesting to see how it was made. Anyway while checking out some cool old furniture I spotted an old Stanley no.3 plane. It was rusted and a bit neglected and apart from a small chip in the body seemed to be in good shape....

I just want some links to ones that are around $20 or less per set. The last item is I am open to the under mount vs the side mount it does not matter to me. Can you please help.

Hand Tools #2: Got my Wenzloff Large Tenon Saw!

10-18-2010 09:48 PM by MikeInPenetanguishene | 5 comments »

Ordered it from LV on Friday and received it this afternoon. Couldn’t wait to open the box and start cutting! First impression – BEAUTIFUL!! It was much heavier than I expected, most likely due to the thick brass back, but the handle was very comfortable in my hand (three finger grip). It’s much heavier than my other back saws (an old Disston and a no-name) but also much easier to saw with. I’m just a beginner and still need to practice on technique, but I fir...

130 - Halloween Router Bowl

10-18-2010 06:37 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 16 comments »

Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options When most of us think of a wooden bowl, we think of the lathe. But you can also make bowls using the router! All you need is a template for the desired shape and a pattern bit to remove the stock. And fortunately Eagle America has holiday-themed kits for making some incredibly cool bowls. These make great gifts and they are super easy to make. The video shows you not only how to make a router bowl, but also ho...

Our timber frame house

10-18-2010 06:01 PM by timberframedave | 10 comments »

We are currently building a passive solar timber frame home in the woods out in Port Orchard, WA. My wife & I worked with my dad (who is a very experienced Architect) come up with the floor plan & site orientation of our house back in the summer/Fall of 2006. It took a few months to draw up the final plans, have them engineered & drafted in auto-cad. Our timber package was delivered to the job site in mid 2007. My dad helped me & my younger brother Mi...

Imagine that...

10-18-2010 05:59 PM by mnorusis | 2 comments »

I wake up one morning to find that I’ve been a member of LumberJocks for 365 days! I can’t believe it’s been a year since I started woodworking “for real”. I have always been “handy” and done projects around the house, but after moving into a single-family home with a 2 car garage a bit more than 1 year ago, I realized the garage would be perfectly suited for a wood shop. Little did I know what I was getting myself into. I have had an amazing ...
