Cheap wood 101

10-10-2016 02:27 PM by Fatherlewis | 5 comments »

Hi fellow LJs. I must say that in my first couple of months here, I have learned a lot. This place is a wealth of knowledge and good ideas, and maybe some not too good ideas. But hey, we are all adults here, and we share our triumphs and defeats, good ideas and bad(if there really is such a thing), as well as good deals, trade secrets, and all other things woodworking. So I found a steal of a deal on the hardwood rough sawn lumber over the weekend. My excitement poured over on the insid...

Breadboard Advice Requested! Would half-lap joint work? :)

10-10-2016 01:00 PM by airlyss | 5 comments »

Hi everyone, I have been lurking here for a little while but thanks for letting me tap into your collective knowledge with my first post! I am in the process of building a farm table for my friend – it is 60×36 and will be made out of kiln-dried pine. I’ve planed, cut, and glued up 5 boards for the table top and would like to put on 5-inch breadboards on both ends. Mortise and Tenon seems to be the way most people attach breadboards, but given my limited tools and e...

Dave Talks #10: Prepping the mount board for structured wiring #2.

10-10-2016 12:40 AM by dbhost | 0 comments »

In this video I show the installed mount board, and give you a more visual representation of what I am trying to accomplish with this move. I didn’t mention it in the video, butt the pencil writing to the right of the board is where the farthest edge of the hutch will extend to. Yes, admittedly it is very minimal woodworking involved, and contrary to the way the video looks, not everything is warped. It would appear that there is a lens distortion in my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. I need...

Basketweave Box w/Roses #2: Part 3 Using the window method

10-10-2016 12:34 AM by DonSol | 5 comments »

In the following drawing the book “The Marquetry Manual” by William A. Lincoln tells you the window method is done by starting with the farthest piece in the background. This would be #1 in the top drawing. Instead of following the lines in the drawing drawing when you come to an adjoining piece you over cut (dotted lines) into the adjoining piece. Put glue all the way around it, with a tooth pic, I put my glue in aplastic coffee can lid. Wait for the glue to dry then draw or t...

Hope Chest for Daughter #2 #8: Back at it...

10-09-2016 10:17 PM by Mainiac Matt | 8 comments »

I’ve finally wrapped up my last interfering project and have cleared the decks for action to get back into this project… My intention is to work it until completion… Broke out the raised panel set and reviewed my plans… Then I sorted my stock, selected boards for the long rails, cut off the checked ends, cut them to 3/4” over sized, and set up the style bit on my router table…. I used 13,000 rpm on the router (Porter Cable 3HP VS) and it cut eff...

Work does not stop due to no power

10-09-2016 09:48 PM by NormG | 3 comments »

Ok, we had a some severe rain here (Henrico county) outside Richmind, Virginia, this past day or so. Power went out this morning. A friend had plans to do some work with several friends for assistance. Well someone said we could nor proceed due to no power. Well his father in law asked why that should stop it. We have hand tools and pencils. Needless to say, hand tools it was, the wives cooked on 3 grills, and the work was completed before nightfall. It was fun. Some learned some ...

Sketchup extension - FitParts for cut plans

10-09-2016 10:40 AM by Slavisa Nesic | 0 comments »

I’ve made a Sketchup extension named FitParts for generating cut plans from your drawing. Let’s say you are making a panel box just for example. First you make 6 walls and group every one of them as you go; it is nice and normal to name them, say left, right, .... Second you select these groups. Third you start my extension from Sketchup menu Extensions / FitParts / MakeCutlist. You will choose or type the size of (identical) panels you have and click the Cut button.What you will...

Good evening fellow lumber jocks,this is my first blog. i have posted a few projects and have looked at almost every single project on here (there is a lot) just to get some inspiration/ideas of what i could make. I think about 3 years ago now i stumbled upon a video posted by the Wood Whisperer, i was hooked at that point and wanted to buy every tool i could think of right off the bat (just ask my wife :)). In these last 3 years i have learnt alot more than i thought i could (learn from your...

Basketweave Box w/Roses #1: Part 2 Assembling the basketweave

10-09-2016 12:04 AM by DonSol | 7 comments »

I had never done a basketweave before so this is the process I came up with. At first it was one of those trial and error things, I’m sure we have all done this. I covered the inside and outside so I had to have 10 panels. A time consuming process, but I would do it again. In this picture I am shading both ends of the pieces. I do enough to make 2 or 3 rows. I put 5 or 6 pieces in and by the time I get the last one in the sand the first one is ready to be turned or taken o...
