Small Cabinet #3: Coming along with my cabinet.

2067 days ago by Betsy | 2 comments »

I’m still being very careful about the size of my projects. I still need to get past the fear of hurting myself from lifting or moving something more than a gallon of milk. I’m getting there though. So now I’m back to working on my friend’s cabinet for her Wii console. Right now I’ve got the carcass made and will be starting to work on the face frame tomorrow. I have decided that I like finishing as I go. Sure makes getting those inside corners looking a lo...

Ponderings #27: Reflections on 2008

2067 days ago by Tomcat1066 | 8 comments »

So, we find ourselves with only a few hours left in 2008 (here in the US. Elsewhere, it may be 2009 already!) Personally, I’d like to take a moment and think of what 2008 has been for me. To start with, it was the first full year without my Grandmother. I miss her terribly. I don’t have a big family, so every loss hurts that much more. I had hoped to build her a piece of furniture. Unfortunately, that wasn’t meant to be. Still, since her father was a woodworker him...

Congratulations to T-Chisel!

2067 days ago by David | 8 comments »

Happy New Year to all my Lumberjock Buddies! I just reviewed the latest issue of Fine Woodworking online and saw one of our newest Lumberjocks has published an article. Congratulations to T-Chisel for getting his article on his Classic Step Stool published! You can also see a companion article where Tommy discusses his finishing process for this project. The Classic Step Stool was a Rough Cutter Forum project, one of three to date, that were built as a cooperative project via a ground-b...

Sneak Peak

2067 days ago by trifern | 20 comments »

This is a preview of a hollow form using some spectacular blistered maple. I still need to apply the finish, cut it off the lathe and finish the bottom. I have had some requests for a tutorial blog on how to do a hollow form. I will try and do that with my next piece. I had every intention of doing a step-by-step photo tutorial with this project. However, once I started, I sort of forgot to document a lot of the steps. .

Knife Making & Repair #2: Groovin' n gluin'

2067 days ago by johngoes | 1 comment »

Today I concentrated on the knife handle repair. On the bandsaw I split the canarywood blank in half and saw a really nice bookmatched colored stripe figure inside. So I decided to flip my blank to have bookmatched handles. I planed the sides smooth using the new benchtop small parts jig I built yesterday. Then I carefully traced the odd-shaped skinny tang on the inside face. I began to sweat bullets as I sat there and quailed at the thought of chopping that odd shape out of the handle whi...

Newbie first blog intro

2067 days ago by Roger Clark aka Rex | 7 comments »

Hello and thank you for the great welcomes. Please be aware that woodworking is something new to me and I cringe when I see projects you members have completed, I feel like a fraud to be a member of such a talented group.I have only just been retired due to health reasons but my body is 66 years old while my head is still hovering in the mid thirties. I was not prepared for retirement and had no plans for it, hence I was stuck, then my wife/nurse/critic came up with woodworking as a hobby/oc...

and then it becomes....... #8: Completed Door

2067 days ago by kolwdwrkr | 9 comments »

Well it’s been a while since I started the marquetry on the door. It’s now complete, well at least getting in all the pieces. I have to sand everything and fit the door to the cabinet. I am undecided if I want to use a pore filler on this because the padauk is so porous. I will admit to you right now that not every fit is perfect. After countless hours holding a knife fatigue sets in followed by some sloppiness. I try my best to stop working on it at that point but after a few...

What did you say about my project???

2068 days ago by Tom Adamski | 47 comments »

As we all know, woodworkers are a prideful people. How many times have we toiled over a project, spending hours and hours just to get an “uh, that’s nice dear” from the spouse? Do they not realize the 4 hours I spent at the wood store to find that grain pattern? I’m sure you can understand…. That’s one of the reasons I see that we post our projects online. To have it evaluated (or at least appreciated) by our online peers here at lumberjocks is a self check tha...

Shop Updates #8: spray booth #2

2068 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 11 comments »

well the spray booth is finally complete! i am so excited as it works wonderfully and i could not ask for a better spray booth. for now. and i can spray almost anything that i want now! so here is a picture of it from the outside. we just sectioned it off with some tarps to keep overspray from getting everywhere as well as make it a more enclosed space so the fan in the window will work better. then here is the inside. i have my nice big table for spraying as well as some halogen light...
