You can never....

  …have enough clamps. Every woodworker in the world knows this.   Previous collection I certainly don’t have enough; not even close.   The Problem Recently, in an attempt to speed up production in the shop, I’ve noticed the lack of clamps was slowing me down significantly. Even though I was initially adverse to working on more than one project at a time, it’s quickly became necessary. More clamps So this morning, after a nice relaxing b...

The Wine Rack #3: Design finalized... off to the lumber store

04-12-2010 10:00 PM by Todd Clare | 4 comments »

After good feedback from all of you and my father-in law, the design is finalized. The rack will hold 10 bottles, and will have thru tenons where the racks meet the side assemblies. Here’s the overall view, with the thru tenons. Still trying to decide if I like them at two different sizes or if I want to shoulder the back ones so they’re uniform… comments please? The view with the legs removed to show the joinery: Off to the wood store, hopefully today....

Getting there!

04-12-2010 08:35 PM by SilasCrutherton | 2 comments »

So I now have two quite nicely stained bookshelves! This being the first time I have EVER stained any wood IN MY LIFE, I think there are a few places where it is a little uneven, but I learned a lot. They got two coats of a “cherry” stain, so they are nice and dark. Just where I wanted them in the first place. I have some lacquer to put on them this afternoon. That should be a nice touch, and then it’s wall mounting time! I really am very new at this woodworking thi...

This is what it's all about

04-12-2010 07:39 PM by Heath | 16 comments »

When I gave the first bandaw box that I made to my wife, my little girl (she’ll be 4 in July) specifically requested a heart shaped box. That became a ”red heart shaped box.” She hasn’t stopped asking me about her “red heart shaped box” since. I finally got to make it for her yesterday and gave it to her right after her bath. I’ve had projects I was proud of before. But nothing like this. And the pride didn’t come my craftsmanship on the ...

Cutting board build blog.

04-12-2010 04:10 PM by Sinister | 31 comments »

I recently uploaded pictures of a cutting board ( and several fellow LJs asked me to show how it was put together. Subsequently, Patron quickly deduced the process and wrote a nice blog showing the step by step process for how to achieve the pattern. I encourage anyone who is interested to take a look because he has some nice pictures outlining the process. I thought I would add a short amendment to his blog de...

Amateur Hour #1: Mortise and Tenon Joinery

04-12-2010 05:28 AM by agartzke | 4 comments »

Just got up from the shop (mine’s in the basement) and thought I’d post my first blog entry. I’ve been thinking about it for a while, but the mortise and tenon joints I was working on gave me the kick I needed! A little background first. I live near Milwaukee and the weather is JUST beginning to turn nice, so during this season, I sort of mix it up between landscaping, woodworking (furniture) and remodeling (1926 bungalow – always needs work). I’ve been woodwo...

Extremely Average #100: Reaching the 100 mark.

04-12-2010 04:22 AM by Ecocandle | 5 comments »

Hello Lumberjocks, Tonight I just want to thank everyone who has been so helpful and supportive in my journey into woodworking. I can’t believe that it has been 100 days since I first started these daily ramblings. I have gotten better at woodworking over that time, though I am still a complete novice. I would like to think that I have gotten better as a writer as well. Both writing and woodworking are fun. Tonight’s blog was more of an exercise in creative writing than a ...

Fighting The Evils of Cancer! #1: Preparing the Battle Field

04-12-2010 02:25 AM by Dukegijoe | 3 comments »

Like many of my fellow lumberjocks I worked on the Guild Build from the Wood Whisperer last month. Unfortunately it is still a work in progress (hey, 2 kids under 3 and a wife have a way of monopolizing your free time); but I thought that I would post some of the pictures and progress I made last month, then finish it off when the final steps were done. For those of you that don’t know, the Guild over at Http:// built Shaker tables last month in an effor to su...

Ruminations, Philosophy, and Workshop Antics.......... #17: FLASH: The Petrified Poets Society Selected to Judge.......The Great Sanding Block Beauty Show......

04-12-2010 01:42 AM by Jim Bertelson | 26 comments »

PETRIFIED POETS SOCIETY Well, I couldn’t call a bunch of LJ’s dead, could I? This endeavour is a real LJ family affair. Many LJ’s contributed to the impetus to make this, well, extravagent and over engineered sanding block. Just so you all know I am really not THAT ‘kooky’ (PATRON has labeled my sense of humor thus and I will spend the rest of my days on LJ’s living it down) I WILL TRY TO SPREAD AROUND THE BLAME NORTON is a real block head, and...
