Norms Router Cabinet #4: Bit Tray's and Cabinet Door are Done - well almost

10-03-2008 03:27 AM by sIKE | 9 comments »

Worked on this last weekend and got back on it today. When I worked on it Sunday getting the door in place I quickly realized that a previous mistake, the left inside panel for the tray cabinet was key stoned with the top tilting in. This left a major gap on the right hand side of the door. The case was glued and brad nailed so I was very afraid to take it back apart to fix it in the first place. So I thought about it all week while in Nebraska and came up with how to fix it. It worked out...

Getting started

10-02-2008 10:35 PM by gav0 | 1 comment »

I am just getting ready to start my first “big” project on (with a little help from my dad and uncle). My wife has wanted a king size bed for a while, so I thought that I would make one. I found a good set plans, and have already purchased my rough sawn cherry. I’m just starting out and am limited on my tools, thats where Dad and my uncle come in, as they have most every thing that I might need to borrow for a while. I’m going to use my uncle’s planer and jointer...

Craftsman Open Panel Shelf #3: My day off.

10-02-2008 07:08 PM by depictureboy | 0 comments »

Well last week I was on-call at work and it was a hell week. So I got to take a full day off as a comp day. YAY!! So I have the stiles and rails cut as well as the shelves(though they aren’t cut to finished length yet.) Today I focused on notching the stiles as needed and constructing the frames. Having gone through this process now, I have some thoughts to share with those who may be interested in trying this out themselves. 1. Lay out your stiles and rails and figure out whic...

Craftsman Open Panel Shelf #2: Gathering the pieces

10-02-2008 06:55 PM by depictureboy | 1 comment »

Well I have started on this project over the weekend. I have a friend who is a furniture craftsman as well as primitive flooring installer. Since I keep my eye out for him on craigslist for wood deals, he gave me 25 board feet of QS white oak that he has been air-drying for 2 years. I took them up to a local dealer to have them planed and jointed, and let me tell you what, they turned out beautifully. Even the owner commented on how beautiful the figuring from the rays are. It was definately ...

My First Commission

10-02-2008 03:21 PM by Huckleberry | 8 comments »

Earlier this week I received my first commission. Or lets say it is my first job for someone that is not a friend or family. I am both excited and intimidated by this first step. Although it is a small job through school and will not be a huge earnings I am looking at it as some great experience. I will be adding cabinets to an existing kitchen. Which with the sizes and such will have to be fabricated. Now for the scary part, HOME-OWNERS! As a home owner myself I really scrutinize work...

Recovery projects #4: Back at it a little bit

10-02-2008 03:15 AM by Betsy | 5 comments »

Well – I’ve managed to get my first scroll saw project done. I’ve been off LJs for a while simply because I can’t be on the computer so much at home when I spend so much time on it at work. My neck just won’t tolerate the computer use. But that’s getting a bit better. I am now allowed to sit in a chair and move around a little bit without my neck brace and I’m allowed to sleep without it. So that’s all good. I can go about 2 hours before my neck...

Small But Useful Navigation Updates

10-01-2008 09:18 PM by Martin Sojka | 9 comments »

Hey odie, yup I’m like a little kid in a candy store ha ;) As you may noticed I moved HR and GT buttons and now they appear right next to the MY LUMBERJOCKS dropdown. Why this change? I think they stand out better here and you can use them to quickly navigate through all three of our websites. Same buttons are on other two websites too. In addition I had to remove LJ Store button. Instead I added LJ Store link to MY LUMBERJOCKS dropdown menu, together with a link to LJ Merchandise...

How I Make a Lazy Susan

10-01-2008 05:36 PM by WoodMosaics | 33 comments »

Now before I get started on this little demonstration of how I do it, let me caution you on a couple things. IF you try anything like this, take the plate that your saw blade comes up through and close that hole completely up with a thin piece of wood. Make sure it is even with the top, with no gaps and no lips to catch the pieces. You want it smooth. Then with a “Hollow ground plywood blade” come up from the bottom so you have no gap between the blade and the wood. You may have to do this a ...
