Wood Glout

05-17-2010 02:03 AM by Dyidawg | 7 comments »

Just got back from my neighbor’s house. Scored 120 board feet of 50+ year old white oak floor boards. They are 10 feet long by 1 foot wide, 3/4 thick. They are from a remodeling and there is more to be had. When all is said and done I should have over 300 feet of this material. I have no idea what it must be worth, but I plan on putting to good use. All I have to do is plane off the finish. Any ideas for projects?

What type of building do I need for a good sized cabinet shop.

05-16-2010 11:54 PM by Dustin | 16 comments »

I need your help if your a cabinet maker. What size building should I have for a three man cabinet shop? We do traditional face frame cabinetry currently but our current shop is way too small to be very functional. Also, should I build a steel or stick built building? What are the pro’s and con’s with each? Is there anywhere where I can get floor layouts? Maybe even building plans? Anything helps! Thanks!

Dan's Blackbutt Roubo Bench #15: Undercarriage Glue Up

05-16-2010 11:53 PM by DoctorDan | 3 comments »

The bench undercarriage is now together. Glue-ups are by far the most stressful period of any project. I did this in stages. First the legs to the front and back carriage. Then with the front on it’s side, glued the mortises and tenons (titebond III), inserted the shelf pieces unglued, and then (with the wifes help) lifted the back on top to drop into place (with the mallet’s help), then put it on it’s legs, the ratcheted straps to square, then drawbores. Aspect view ...

Drum Sander #4: Pause for thought

05-16-2010 10:55 PM by BritBoxmaker | 10 comments »

Hello all. Been a mixed day today. Pist that I have a problem deciding how to mount the motor. My old motor doesn’t have feet along its side, as in the design. Its only mounting points are on the end where the spindle emerges. I’ve discussed this at length in the comments of the last blog entry with Autumn and jm82435 (thank you both for your valuable input) and I’ve decided to take this offline and have a major think. So how to pick myself up. Well the drum glue-up went ...

Just for Fun... #15: A Quick Assembly and the inevitable Finishing Slow Down...

05-16-2010 10:25 PM by littlecope | 15 comments »

After blasting out the parts for the new Birdhouse last week on the band saw,The assembly went just as quickly. The parts were taken home, the necessary access hole added, a top post/hanging bracket fashioned, and pilot holes were drilled for the attachment of the slats for the roof.I forgot how much fun building a birdhouse can be!! They’re for the birds, after all, and they will never be overly critical… :)With the assembly finished, it was on to the finishing department… ...

I don’t remember everyone’s name but there was a lot of people there yesterday and we had one heck of a great time. I forgot my camera but Rustic Rick took a bunch of pics he said he would put on as soon as he had time. Dustin again brought his bunches of veneer. Wow, I scored on the wood exchange with a pile of curly maple plus a roll of curly maple veneer, how’s that for lucky. I know David Craig got a board of blood wood that will keep him in inlay for life. plus I gave h...

New Features: Blocklists

05-16-2010 06:35 PM by Martin Sojka | 103 comments »

Not one of the positive features but unfortunately it seems like there was no chance to avoid adding self-managed blocklists here at LumberJocks. Requested by many members recently I believe this new feature will be vital for further growth and good atmosphere here. When you choose to block someone, it means they: Can’t comment on your profile Can’t comment on your posts (projects, blog entries, forum topics, reviews, workshop) Are removed as your buddy, and you are re...
