Would factory rejected lumber count as recycled ?

2105 days ago by Dan'um Style | 24 comments »

Hello A few years ago … maybe 6 or 7, I bought a box full of curly maple rejected guitar blank backs from Gibson in Nashville. Pieces are miss matched bookmatches, less then 3/8 thick, imperfect offcuts, 6 to 9 inches wide and about 18 inches long. Nice looking wood. Does this count as recyled ? I made sometihing I’d like to enter in the contest and wanted to ask first. Regards DAN

Tattoo Table #2: bloody hard work

2105 days ago by Boon | 4 comments »

After getting the exact wood that i wanted i started cutting the pieces down. I choose a table from a woodworking book to copy and modify. Im using 2.5×3x13 inch african mahogany legs and will cut the ends to be flush with the 3/4 hondura mahogany. the idea is from a tile top coffee table but instead of tile, i have oak panels i will lay inside and then the tattoo shop owners will draw all over it and then ill cover it with bar top epoxy. if this post has a few errors its because its ...

Shop Organization #1: Shop Setup

2105 days ago by SteveKorz | 12 comments »

I’ve looked at a lot of workshop profiles on LumberJocks lately. Everyone tends to setup their shop a little different. For those of you that read my Fire Therapy topic in the coffee lounge, you know that I’ve been doing a little housekeeping lately. Since my mass exodus of junk, I have an incredible amount of room in my shop to begin to actually set it up for the first time in my life. Before I messed around for three or four days hanging shelves and cabinets, I thought I&#...

What to do with mistakes?

2105 days ago by Benomatic | 10 comments »

I’ve been working on a small hanging shelf that is suppose to be testing out my new table saw: in reality it is my table saw testing me out. I made the mistake of cutting my dados with a wobble blade instead of waiting to buy an actual set of Freud dado blades- but at the time it seemed like I could get away with it. Its b/c these dados turned out so bad that I went out and bought the right kind of blade for the job I was doing. Why- WHY! So my mistake is now having dados which re...

The Craftsman's Path #42: Turned Walnut Bowl

2105 days ago by Mark Mazzo | 3 comments »

I don’t consider myself an accomplished turner…yet. Though, I’m working on it! I like to turn and the relative instant gratification that turning projects can offer. I had not turned anything in a while but, recently I spied a small off-cut of Walnut in the shop that was left over from the sofa table project. It looked like it had a bowl hiding inside it. Read on and I’ll walk you through the process I followed to create the Walnut bowl. Thanks for reading!

One Man's Junk - Chair #6: Looking like a chair?

2105 days ago by Zuki | 4 comments »

I find it quite neat with woodworking that after hours toiling with chunks of wood, crafting them into miscellaneous shaped pieces that they all fir together (relatively well we hope) to resemble a final product. Today I worked on the Front Rail, Back Rail, Back Posts, Back Stretchers and seat. I first went upstairs to take some measurements off the model. I then made the Front Rail and Back Rail (which I attached to the Back Posts). I then proceeded to notch the back to the seat ...

My woodworing ideas and tips #9: My mind set and woodworking

2105 days ago by Betsy | 7 comments »

Some say my mind is set—- in other words – I’m stubborn. So say they. I prefer to think I have a mind set. In other words – I think a certain way about certain things. Safety is one of those things that I have a mind set about and my mind is set on. I’ve been thinking about this today as I sit here, yet another day on the couch, unable to go to the shop and do what I would prefer to do. I’ve been thinking that maybe if I just do this little something ...
