For Sale #5: Beading Stop for Stanley #45 - Updated

02-03-2016 01:48 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 1 comment »

Price lowered. Won’t mess with it for less than $12 shipped, and it’s a fair price at that. This oft-missing part came with a recent eBay purchase and I don’t need it. PM if interested, thanks.

Box Making #4: EGBs Jewellery box opps, or how not to make a bandsaw box

02-03-2016 07:29 AM by robscastle | 4 comments »

I had a request from No 2 Son to replicate the Box I made for his first daughter CaitlinSeems younger sister Emily spotted it and requested the same, I didn’t keep any records on how I did it and asked if I could get it back to copy it, this proved to be impossible due to the aproaching Birthday. So I set to work, working off a few pictures I took before. I was making great progress until I put the lid on. There seemed to be a problen with the grain. Wondering if ...

Cocobolo and Leopardwood Table : Process pics. #3: Gunstock joints as an afterthought.

02-03-2016 03:23 AM by jeth | 0 comments »

Hello all, just in case anyone is following along I’ll continue here with how I added the gunstock joints to the legs as an afterthought.I had already prepped the leg blanks and cut mortises when I decided (influenced in large part by a nice arts and crafts hall table in a magazine article) that the table would benefit from”flowing” the legs into the apron frames with gunstock joints. This will probably be easier to visualise if I show you the end result, so this is what ...

WEAVED BOX SERIES #1: Weaved Design Variations

02-03-2016 01:55 AM by BertFlores58 | 1 comment »

Triple slat designs. I started using the scrap pieces excess from Narra flooring parquet. This was the result of squaring both sides of the cut using thicknesser jig I made. It was easily done even by 4 or 5 depending on the texture and grain orientation of the narra strips. The use of popsicle sticks was really proportional with the Narra. Design Concepts I have started the three designs and manage to construct two using same concept with only variation on the black spaces by using 1...

Shop Remodel #41: I Got Chopped

02-03-2016 01:11 AM by bearkatwood | 9 comments »

For those of you who have never used a leg vise, they are amazingly useful animals to have in the shop. To those of you who have one, “way to go” ;)To those of you who have one, and it happens to have benchcrafted hardware, let me commiserate with you just a bit. They are not really a difficult thing to put in, though I am a bit mechanically disinclined. They seem to be more on the tedious end of things and very persnickety. Kind of like putting a leash on a bumble-bee; be accurat...

Cedar Strip Canoe Build # 30 Fairing The Inside

02-02-2016 11:56 PM by farmerdude | 5 comments »

It’s time to fair the inside of the hull. Due to the shape it is never an easy job. I have some different things to try. First is an ulu. This was given to me by a good friend. He made it using an old tablesaw blade. Actually, he made it for us to use in the kitchen. I guess my wife and I are too old to change. We just couldn’t get used to this over a regular knife. When I was making the last canoe I needed something to fair the inside curve and thought of this ulu. It matc...

Hints and Tips #21: Cork Feet

02-02-2016 11:40 PM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

Have you ever had a project the needs little feet to get it off the table, but you only have wine corks? This happened to me recently, so I cut the corks into about 1/2 inch slices with my mini miter box and glued one in each corner of the project. To be sure they were level I rubbed the installed feet on a sheet of course sandpaper fixed to my flat work bench. Instant cork feet.

Setting Up Shop #10: No More Excuses...almost.

02-02-2016 10:31 PM by DylanC | 0 comments »

Since I started this blog almost exactly 5 years ago, I’ve really only half-heartedly added tools to my collection, and generally just tinkered around with projects. As you can see, I’ve not posted a single “Project” here at lumberjocks. Until recently I kept telling myself that I couldn’t tackle anything substantial because I didn’t have the right tool(s). I’d say to myself, “If I only had a [bandsaw, planer, spindle sander, dovetail jig, et...
