With LumberJocks expanding and GardenTenders growing so nice, I think it’s the right time to add the third related site into the mix. It was requested numerous times here on the LumberJocks… the site with the same format covering all about home building, remodeling, decorating and improvement. Debbie came up with the perfect GardenTenders name but now we’re struggling a bit with this new name. The requirements are: It should fit the LumberJocks, GardenTenders naming ...
Beauties of Wood ....i am the breeze that carouses through your veins of wood, where in the distance my imaging gives freely to any who taste, taste and see that ‘just as’ i am likened with life at dusk, so ‘just is’ the assurance also that come my dawn i will be therein…. —-how many ways can i speak of the beauties of wood, where out of the classroom of my workshop i bear forward to an engagement, i am enabled to continue this romance that so cap...

January has been an entertaining and inspiring month, as the entries for our two Awards categories came in. I am very pleased to see the excellent response – with 50 boxes and 34 2×4 projects. Also, the challenges that we host throughout the year are intended to provide woodworkers the opportunity to expand their own skills. I think you have outdone yourselves. Very impressive work. You are all winners already. Congratulations. And now, an exciting week is ahead of us as we meet...
So, I find myself looking at two different saws (yeah, I know what I wrote earlier, but that was a minimum…who wants just a minimum anyways?). I’m mostly checking out the dovetail saws and the rip saws on eBay. Guess what? The style dovetail saw I want? They seem to shoot up in price bigger than snot. I top bid $45? They go for $46. I don’t bid? They go for $30. What’s up with that? However, I’m not despairing though. Every time I have gotten a setba...
Well, after a brief diversion with the new (old) smoothing plane, I have been back to work on the Queen Anne Side Table. This post covers dovetailing the top rail above the drawer and cutting the Queen Anne style scroll work on the aprons. Next up will be the glue up and drawer runner assembly. Take a look and let me know what you think. Thanks for reading!
I recently added to my power tool collection. in december, i had a borrowed scroll saw, but thanks to Christmas presents and advances on birthday presents I also have a sander and drill press. I have just come to realize that i am very prone to wanting tools. i can’t see an end in sight for it, there is always something better, faster, more accurate. \Do you know how pot is supposed to be the entry drug to harder more addictive drugs? No one told me that scroll saws were an entry tool. ...
