and then it becomes....... #5: Padauk

11-15-2008 07:05 AM by kolwdwrkr | 12 comments »

Well after I returned to the shop with my padauk from Austin hardware and lumber, I cut the material down to sizes close to what I was going to work with and ran them on edge over the jointer. After getting the edges straight and true I glued them up into planks and let them dry. I pulled them from the clamps and ran them through the drum sander. Then cut them to final width then length. I then set up my leigh jig and routed the dovetails and wha la the basic box stands. In these picks...

Woodworking in America 2008 #2: Day 1, or Is This Heaven or Am I Just In Sensory Overload?

11-15-2008 05:21 AM by Texasgaloot | 10 comments »

Back in college when you had four classes in one day it was just another day. I guess that’s why we send our kids to school while they are young. I don’t feel young. Here’s the run-down of my day (mercifully all my classes were within two buildings very near each other.) My first session was on chair design with Brian Boggs. If you aren’t familiar with Brian, you need to be. Find him here. Now, I’ve never really had any interest in chairs, knowing that t...

11-15-2008 03:19 AM by David | 1 comment »

This quick video is live from Neil Lamens of Funitology Productions fame. Neil share thoughts from his first seminar with chair maker Brian Boggs and the awesome feeling of making connections with fellow woodworkers. Neil met up with internet woodworking friend Chuck Middleton, a frequent member of The Rough Cut Show Rough Cutters Forum. What glue was Neil referring to from the chair making session with Brian Boggs? Hide glue of course! Don’t forget to check out Patrick Edwards Ol...

Building a Classical Guitar #6: The back and back braces

11-14-2008 05:13 PM by kem | 4 comments »

In this part of the series, we’ll look at making and installing the back braces, making the back, and prepping the sides for the big glue-up. In this guitar, I put in four back braces. These braces were made from 7×15 mm strips of Spanish cedar ripped on a bandsaw. The braces were given a rounded profile on the side facing up when you look through the sound hole. After cutting the braces to length, the ends of each brace on the rounded side were chiseled flat. This would ...

Finally Finished!

11-14-2008 04:33 PM by KnickKnack | 3 comments »

So.The outdoor bench thing is finally finished. Shame it isn’t summer anymore!It’s quite comfortable, but the arms are a bit low.It’s a very simple design (see below) – I think I saw something like it during research (posh name for surfing), but I don’t know where.What did I learn?Lots… Most importantly – do NOT buy completely unfinished boards – I estimate that about 80% of the time making this (about 3 weeks beginning to end, but I don’t work hard) was spent simpl...

Woodworking in America 2008 #1: Day 0.5

11-14-2008 12:41 PM by Texasgaloot | 6 comments »

It’s 1994 or 95. (Or so, I can’t actually remember.) I’m living in Jessamine County, Kentucky, working in the campus library as I finish my master’s degree, when one of my computer-savvy friends mentions a fairly new “listserv” that he has run across, called the “Old Tools Listerv.” Of course, I’ve been a woodworker since I was a kid, so I have to check this out. Before long, my vehicle is sporting a bumper sticker that declares, ̶...

A LumberJocks Journey (fictional) #1: The beginning (fiction)

11-14-2008 07:02 AM by kolwdwrkr | 3 comments »

My eyes scope the hillside as my feet push my body up the trail. The soles of my feet tired of the treck, my boots wet from the stream crossing one mile back. It’s getting colder the higher I climb. The wind is blowing a little harder, whistling through the trees. My backpack seems to get heavier too, the axe inside wanting out to do it’s job of falling the specific tree I’m after. You see, I noticed the little beauty a year earlier on a hunting trip, a trip in which I ...
