Hi all. I’ve just joined Lumberjocks and hope to show some of what we get up to here in South Africa, where I live. I need to find my feet on the site first and I know a hell of a lot less about computers than I do wood! I shall learn!Thanks to Max, a1Jim, Bureaucrat and WistysWoodworkingWonders for the welcome.

Testing Creative Commons Licensing code on LJ Blogs...

05-09-2010 05:58 PM by Mark Whitsitt | 19 comments »

Ok, so I’m not typically litigious, and I’m happy to share images of the things I work on, but lately, I’m finding that covering my @$$ legally makes more and more sense… (it hasn’t been a friendly business year…) So, I’m going to start licensing my images using the Creative Commons license, and here I’m testing HTML code generated by Here’s a image of a drawing I made last night to visualize cutting an isosceles/eq...

Bench #2: Tenon's and first dry fit

05-09-2010 05:18 PM by Dave T | 0 comments »

With the rocking chairs out of the way I can now move on to items on my honey do list. Made some good progress yesterday. All the tenons on back rails and bottom aprons. When I cut all the mortises I missed one. I roughed it our, but didn’t finish cleaning it out (the one on the left in the picture so I have one more mortise and tenon to fit. With that said I did a dry fit. Thanks for reading

Upping the game with a new card table! #3: The demilunes

05-09-2010 05:10 PM by Builder_Bob | 0 comments »

Time to make the table top. Two tops actually, each a half circle. Two demilunes (half-moons). They fold together for a nice demilune wall table and swing into a full circle when the piece is converted into a game table. Picking out the mahogany boards. Board Buddies, don’t saw anything without them. Throw them a few biscuits for good measure. Notice the oddly colored board on the far right. This board would become my nemesis.

A personal challenge - The make #5: Day 5 . Much trepidation!

Hello all this has been the most fraught day of this make and the most exhilarating. The cramp from my arm died down after about the fourth beer so I wasn’t too bright this morning when I started again. However I set about making the border for the top. I cut each piece roughly to size, with a knife. Like cutting matchsticks. Then shaped the mitred ends on the disc sander (180 grit disc).You can just about pick out one of the side pieces nearest the disc on the lefthand side. Before ...

New England Jocks Rock North Bennet Street School!

05-09-2010 03:30 PM by Lenny | 35 comments »

On a rainy morning when it was far better to be a New England woodworker than a New England athlete (Bruins, Celtics and Sox all lost the night before), 16 Lumberjocks met in the North End of Boston at the famed North Bennet Street School (NBSS) and enjoyed a day of meeting one another, touring the facility, receiving a tutorial on Google Sketchup and being students once again as we got a crash course on chair-making from a teacher. I work about a ten-minute walk from NBSS. One day while ...

I just want to thank Lenny for efforts in putting together the New England get together at the NBSS. It was a fantastic experience. The school tour was amazing, and to meet other New England lumber jocks in person was just as rewarding. Thanks Lenny for all your hard work putting this together, it was very well done. I hope we can do it again in the future. Lou
