I will just give a quick synopsis of my build so far. It has been on hold while I have been building my new shop. It has been under a tarp in my front yard for the last year. I got started on this project as I wanted to build a boat to take my grandson fishing and camping. I was originally going to build a 18’ Redwing. I showed my father-in-law the plans for the boat while my wife and I were visiting him. He said I think you should go bigger. My wife said I think Dad is right. ...
There are other procedures you can add to produce a raised moulding on the frame. Once you have mastered the method I have presented change the shape of the cut-out to an elliptical shape and use the same procedure to make an elliptical frame. There is also an extra procedure to rout the external edge elliptical in shape as well. Also adding a raised moulding to give it more interest. This may be the last post till Christmas is over as we are have family over for two weeks. I wish you all ...
If you have been able to follow the video you will find all you need to produce the rectangular frame. (1) Jig Holder is the simple box to hold the material secure and also keep the template in position.(2) Jig to secure the material to. Note This jig was also used as a template with the same size cut-out of the other template. In the video the complete Jig Holder was reversed to produce the rebate for the photo and the rebate for the backing material.(3) 40mm Template guide or if you are ...
This is going bacwards a little since I found the pics from the beginning of the project. What got me started on actually building the new shop was my boat project. Here is a pic of my boat project under the carport I was using to protect the build. You can see my small garage in the pic. So, down with the old and up with the new. Deconstruction begins. The old garage was built in 1942. I donated 95% of the materials to Reconstructed. I kept some of the pieces for myself to inco...

I am new to this so bare with me. When I first discovered all the information about woodworking on the internet I was really overwhelmed. When I saw everyones shops with Powermatic and Delta tools I felt like I had a substandard shop. I have mostly tools from yard sales and flea markets. In 1986 I bought a new Shopsmith Mark V 500. Which I love and still have. I also have another one that I have rebuilt. Everyone on Lumber Jocks has made me feel so welcome. I have posted 3 projects and all th...
Yo whats up everybody I was just wondering if its better to buy lots of what I would call accessories stuff like router bits drill bits clamps stuff like that as your next shop upgrade or is it better to spend that money on a jointer and buy clamps and other accessories the next time you were to upgrade your shop.
Week before Christmas and I have two things to do. First, and most importantly, be the primary child-care giver this week (I’m off work, Momma ain’t) and two, build Christmas presents for five to ten family members. My son is seven months old. No help there. I had to make this today… And then shim it… In order to make these tea candle holders… Right now, the sun has set and I’ll be slapping some oil/varnish on ‘em and call...
Today I finished up the last of the pens I was making for gifts, you can check them out on my projects page. I spent part of the afternoon making a picture frame for an ariel photo of the property I bought. I can say that I’m not very good at making frames, this one I made from some old oak barn boards. Well I’ve been on LJ’s for about a month now and it has and is interesting. I really enjoy seeing what other woodworkers from not only around my area in Kentucky are doing...
He slices, he dices, he makes mounds of julienne mahogany: I cut all the hardwood for the first night stand, today. A few pics: The top: The legs: They’re chamfered (, of course!): Various panels: Note the use of my (wonderful) Grizzly band saw, in making the arc for the front panel skirt! One of the stars of today’s show: Honorable mention goes to…. Tomorrow should bring this beast into the lineup! Twas ...
