Upper Deck #1: Ledger

06-26-2009 01:22 AM by Zuki | 11 comments »

During the summer months most of my woodworking are projects for outside . . . like my recent greenhouse project. This project is a deck on the rear of our house. You can see from the pic it is up pretty high (11ft of the ground) and it is over the stairwell going into the basement (another 8ft). The first step is to remove the siding. A definite must is a siding removal tool. Cost $6 and allows you to unhook the siding for removal. Here I have all the siding removed and you...

Lumber Gloat!!

06-25-2009 06:17 AM by matt garcia | 20 comments »

Hello fellow Lumberjocks! It’s time for another installment of, a great phrase I picked up from Charles Jackson III (B.K.A. Beginningwoodworker), “Wood Gloat”!! I subscribe to our local Rockler email offers. Last month Rockler was offering curly maple for $5.99 a b/f. I called the day after the email came out, and they were 75% sold out! I rushed over there that afternoon, and found 30 b/f I couldn’t live without!! Those are 10’ sticks ladies and ...

Stool #1: Beginnings of a Stool

06-25-2009 04:30 AM by Nick | 2 comments »

Today at the end of work I whipped up an idea of how I plan to build my first stool. Being a college student in a college apartment I figured I better make this a tough stool. I may have gone a bit overboard buying the 4×4-8’ fir. ha. I’m going to try to build this using the wood, wood glue, a hand saw, sand paper, and then a chisel and hammer. The 4 horizontal piece I plan to make simple a simple 4×4-1’. I might make it look a little nicer by beveling the edges or...

resawing #4: European olive (Olea europaea) turning blanks

06-25-2009 04:01 AM by Gary Fixler | 8 comments »

I never posted it, but the day after I got those paperbark branches I went back to the same location to pick up the logs of the tree they were cutting down fully, so the building there could put up a security camera. I had stopped for the paperbark, and they asked if I wanted to come back for a whole tree the next day. Score! Here’s the tree as it stood between the cut-back paperbarks. I honestly never even looked at it, busy with paperbark at the time, so I was glad I had this one blur...

30 projects in 30 days #12: Nightmare on Wall Street

06-25-2009 03:46 AM by scottb | 2 comments »

I’ve posted two Wall Street twist models recently, and tonight I tried my hand at a click version of the same pen. Tonight for project #24…. First up was cocobolo, a lovely brownish striped wood, when turned it looks purple and orange, and returns to rich browns when exposed to air and finished with oil… at least it normally does. – this piece is half caramel and cocoa, and half… umm, fruit stripe gum. If it didn’t brown at all, it’d make a ...

Step-back Cupboard Build #12: In the immortal words of MC Hammer: Stop! Router Time!

06-25-2009 03:38 AM by rwyoung | 0 comments »

(I’ll translate for those of you on the east coast, Rhouta’ Time ;-) ) I glued up the two stiles and rail for the upper face frame. Something to keep in mind when doing any sort of work is the order of operations. Round over before glue up? After? The reason I mention this is because I made a strategic choice about when to chamfer the inside edge of the frame. I could have done the chamfer on the pieces before glue-up and also cope the shoulders of the rail to fit or m...

Wine Rack Expedition #9: Inlay, wood burning and the finish line.... YAY :)

06-25-2009 03:17 AM by Demowen | 4 comments »

Well folks, it has been quite a while since I’ve been able to get on here and talk about the project. If you haven’t read any of the previous blogs, this is a wine rack that I built for my brother’s wedding. If you want the basic construction, see the prior posts. From here on is the little decoration details… I hope I don’t have too many pictures ;). I think I’ll let the pictures do some of the talking for me but I want to capture the whole process....
