Milling Weekend LJ event - Murchison, NZ #4: Day #2 photos

08-29-2010 11:33 AM by daltxguy | 3 comments »

Yesterday rain moved in late in the day and rained all night but cleared in the morning. Unfortunately that left the steep track to the beech forest impassable due to clay mud, despite serious mud chains on the 4wd. The plan was adjusted to do a local walk to view some intact native lowland forests. We visited some massive examples of Kahitakea, Matai, Miro, Red beech and silver beech. Then it was off for a leisurely hot brown beverage at the local River’s cafe before going back to...

Mortises-Tenons-and Dado's Oh My.....

08-29-2010 08:14 AM by Bob Kollman | 10 comments »

Three weeks ago I started building a bed for my son the all star werestler. About once every 2 years for the past 6 years, John and his freind Desmond will manage to kill a matress-box spring- and frame. I will not picture the carniage…I figured to build one they can’t break (easily anyway), thinking it wasn’t that much wood (wrong), and it would only take 2 weekends (wrong). Their are 2 stars to this project the first being my mortise jig. The jig is a simpl...

A New Book On Greene & Greene Furniture By David Mathias

08-29-2010 06:56 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 16 comments »

I Can Hardly Wait! A few days ago I ordered a new book titled Greene & Greene Furniture: Poems Of Wood & Light by David Mathias. I held off from ordering it because once I officially placed my order the impatience would set in. Now I am like a kid waiting for Christmas morning and I can hardly stand it. My woodworking has it’s roots in remodeling. As I did design research for my remodeling business, I became acquainted with the well-known Craftsman and Prairie style st...

A journey into the workshop. #65: I should have stopped while I was ahead...

08-29-2010 06:10 AM by dbhost | 5 comments »

but making forward progress just felt so good. I kept working, straight through the heat, and soaking through 3 different sets of clothes, and it was satisfying to get things done today, but man am I SORE, and I bet tomorrow is gonna be a LOT worse. I am finding more and more floor, and more of my tools that I was starting to wonder, “now where did I put that?” like my pull saw, hack saw, both of my combination squares, and most of my tape measures, are back in their rightful p...

Wow, it has almost been a year for me on Lumberjocks! What would the odds be for 361 posts on 361 days! Amazing! I have loved every minute on this site, met a lot of new friends. But wait! If I post this blog than it won’t be 361 posts anymore…..... What to do…..... her goes. Waiting for 365 days in just 4 days. I am not sure I can take the stress! Hacksaw007 (Mike)

First Barn Wood Project #3: Assembled the base

08-29-2010 04:29 AM by JonSnc1 | 2 comments »

Greetings all. I assembled the base this week and took a couple pic’s. I haven’t put the top on yet, just sat the boards there to get an idea how it’d look. I was originally going to make loose tenons for the leg to apron joints on this table, but with the twist I had in the aprons, there was really no way to use any serious joinery here, at least with my skill set. I really didn’t want to remove the material needed to correct the twist, so instead I decided to use ...

Extremely Average #236: The post is up...

08-29-2010 04:23 AM by Ecocandle | 1 comment »

Hello All, I am feeling a bit icky today, so I started out to write a really lame post. I may have accidentally written a slightly entertaining one, I can’t be sure. There isn’t any woodworking stuff tonight, but there is a photo of a duck, so it has that going for it. It might be good…it might stink…I am just not sure. The 3 photos are nice though. <My post tonight is…well…it started out as rubbish and then finished strong&...

Mikros Kosmos #20: My first dovetails!

08-29-2010 04:18 AM by tyskkvinna | 10 comments »

So the discussion in my last blog really got me thinking and for whatever reason this evening I decided to give dovetails a shot. I’ve never done any sort of locking joinery before… in fact I’ve only even tried mitred joints a few times without all that much luck. I figured it out. This is 3/32×1/8 balsa wood. It was just two scrap pieces I thought I’d see if I could actually do it. Determining that, in fact, I could, I set about making the drawers. ...

Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #6: Quick drawer question for the more experienced!

08-29-2010 03:07 AM by RonPeters | 3 comments »

Ok, so I’ve changed the design of the drawers a bit on my bench cabinet. I decided that instead of sliding on wood rails – per the plan – that it would be much better to use side mount ball bearing sliders. The plan calls for 19-3/4” deep (carcass is 20” deep) but they don’t make 19” sliders. I got 18”s. The width of the drawer is 23” (I know, I’ve read that they shouldn’t be wider than the slider, oh well…) Depth o...
