A Fancy Raised Panel

06-03-2010 06:11 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 24 comments »

As much as I would love to show you all the details of my current project, time just won’t allow it. But there is one specific part of the process I wanted to show you: making the raised panels. Now these aren’t your average raised panels, which we covered in detail in Raising Arizona. The panels actually consist of a walnut and birdseye maple sandwich (you can see the completed doors to the left). The resulting effect give us a birdseye maple border around a unique piec...

Roubo Workbench #10: One Man's Trash...

06-03-2010 04:09 PM by Eric | 12 comments »

I went to the lumberyard today to check out the wood for my bench. For those who didn’t read my previous post(s), this is lumber that has been rejected by the timber export company for reasons unknown. Well today I learned that part of the reason the lumber is rejected is because it needs to be straight, knot-free, etc. the entire length of the board. When it’s not, the whole board is rejected (even though some of it might still be beautiful wood!). The manager of the yard had ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1: Beginning this Blog

06-03-2010 02:14 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I recently was referred to this site by Steve Good, who has a wonderful, comprehensive scroll saw forum and blog page. Although I have been doing woodworking for almost fifteen years, I have finally reached a point in my life where I am able to make it the main focus of my activities. Since my life revolves around my woodworking and business, I believe that this blog will reflect that very clearly, although it will also be somewhat personal. But I think that woodworking is very personal any...

Weave pattern LL Dip and Chip #2: Cutting and Gluing up the weave.

06-03-2010 12:13 PM by degoose | 29 comments »

Here is the cutting and dry fit of the weave pattern…I sanded the lengths on the Jet 16/32 drum sander and cut the individual piece to length using an Incra Mirtre Express..You can see the Magswitch Magnets I am using as stop blocks… one long and one short…The pieces are kept in order they are cut so that the grain orientation is maintained… this makes the illusion…Enjoy the slide show of the actual glue up…Martyn… start to finish for the glue up̷...

May, 2010 This month, in our June issue of our LumberJock eMag, I had the privilege of interviewing teenagewoodworker. 1. how did you find LumberJocks and what keeps you coming back?I found out about lumberjocks the same way that countless other people have, through the Wood Whisperer. He mentioned the site and at the time I was new to woodworking so I was trying to find every website that I could that had anything at all to do with woodworking. Now what keeps me coming back is prob...

My Roubo Build #11: Minimal Progress ;-)

06-03-2010 10:22 AM by naomi weiss | 8 comments »

OK, so i flipped the top and started milling the top of the bench. On Monday, i had my driving theory exam and passed! Yay! And i was near the hardware store so i popped in for some bigger bolts. Turns out they only come in 10cm (is this true?!) so i had to buy a long one—over a metre (bigger than a yard!) and cut it into pieces. Does this sound right to everyone? I kind of thought having a head on the bolt gave torque advantage…

In The Beginning #1: 40 hours until it begins

06-03-2010 10:08 AM by Crushgroovin | 5 comments »

It was all started 8 weeks ago as a way of spending more time with my sons & a desire to build a common hobby before they reach the age of rebellion. So we 3 set off on this foray into woodworking with a 20 year old duct taped circular saw, a 20+ year old jigsaw, a new (under powered) table router, & about 100 projects & about a million ideas of what we would like to do first. The first project of course was a work table/bench. That was followed by two cutting boards. These thr...

Nothing new, just everything...

Finding a balance remains a constant challenge. What exactly is the right amount of “doing” and “talking about doing?” Social networking offers an extraordinary outlet. Doing it correctly requires a full-time assistant, unless you are lucky enough to have awesome bandwidth and a job involving a computer. Otherwise, it’s straight up work.Many of us feel like we don’t get enough time to leave all the comments we would like, or tweet all the whingeing and fact...

Lathe Centers #1: Sears Lathes

06-03-2010 05:16 AM by hvroberts | 7 comments »

This past winter I was trying to build up my tool supply for my shop. (This is Maine and my shop has no heat) I found an add for a lathe on Craigslist. It was in my old stomping grounds about 50 miles north where I spent the first 19 years of life. To make the story short, I bought the lathe. (When they ask $40. for a lathe, you don’t try to dicker the price). Upon setting this up I noticed that the head stock center looked as if it had been beaten with a hammer. I took out the Dremmel ...
