making good...

01-11-2007 05:22 AM by scottb | 0 comments »

Progress begins tomorrow morning!... I’ve updated the projects list on my drawing board page in an attempt to get all the old, and in-progess ones done, so I can start on the new (and much more exciting) ones guilt free! What has taken so long? Life. Whatever. Doesn’t matter, except that so much time has passed much of the delay comes from no longer “seeing” what I’ve left hanging at 90% done… well no more I say! With any luck I can start the spring with...

My Top Five List of Influential Woodworkers...

02-22-2007 07:35 PM by Ethan Sincox | 6 comments »

I posted this on one of the forum questions by ToolCribEditor. I thought it was such a good insight into my own life that it should qualify as a blog entry. I wonder how many people would put “famous” woodworkers on their list as opposed to people they know in their personal lives. Maybe it all comes down to their definition of “influential”. #1 – My mentor, Vic, is probably the most influential woodworker on my list. He puts a lot of time and effort int...

ive been getting some comments about sketchup and people wanting me to make a blog with some how to’s. i am a new user of sketchup, and it isn’t hard to use at all! the first thing i did on my credenza plans (that i posted in my projects list) was just make the 60×18’’ top that is 13/16’’ thick. i am a mac user, and i dont know if the pc version is any different, i assume it is the same though. on the top, there is a tool bar. you click the “rect...

would not let me load unless I wrote something here

04-30-2007 09:39 PM by jockmike2 | 4 comments »

I finally finished my aprons as far as the scrollwork goes. It took me 2 weeks to cut out the design on the aprons due to my back. A few minutes at a time. I did something different, taking the Green and Green attraction to oriental themes, I took them literally in my design. Time consuming on that Dremel. Time I really did’nt have, so now I’m pressed on the rest of the poject. However, I still think I can pull it off. I am making a home made coping sled to cut all my tenons. Then...

The LumberJock's Furniture Show

06-01-2007 04:41 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 41 comments »

A Gaggle of LJ’s I just got onto LJ tonight and found out that Scott Shangrilaw is going to the Western Design Conference, in addition to Dennis Mitchell and myself. I am pretty excited about this. It is exciting enough to get into the show, but to be in a premier venue with 2 other LJ brothers really kicks it. Are there any other LJ’s that will be going to see the show in Jackson, WY? It is Sept 6, 7 & 8. I would love to meet more LJ’s in person.

Projects #8: John White FWW Workbench - Finished Top

08-09-2007 06:45 AM by Jeff | 8 comments »

I have an update on the bench. The top is completed and I’m nearing the home stretch. I’m already starting to come up with ideas for special uses/jigs for the inserts in the well… I measured and drilled the holes for the end supports of the well and then threaded my pipe stock and checked for level. I also cut the blocks that are moved when you need to adjust the lateral clamps and positioned them above each leg and the center support. I laid in the MDF panels to make sur...

Challenge 03 Entry - Bridge Dining Table

09-17-2007 08:22 PM by RickInTexas | 12 comments »

So after missing out on the last challenge, I made myself get this one done before time ran out. Let me first start by showing my influence.This shows the column and cap design that I like that we are using for bridges around the Houston area. I work for Texas Dept. of Transportation, so I thought that doing a table inspired by not one single location, but by all the bridges that I have been around for the past couple years.This second one shows the beams between two bent caps. So here it ...

A New Hope

11-09-2007 05:16 AM by rookster | 6 comments »

When last we met, the level of clutter in my basement shop area had hindered my desire to be there. But a recent disaster quickly disposed of the clutter. My shop space is cleaner and more comfortable than it ever was, and the clutter is GONE! You can see more pictures of the newly cleared shop space in my Workshop section here at LumberJocks. It’s good to be back.

Your best friend in the shop #1: What is the one thing you use all the time and couldn't live without?

12-05-2007 09:48 PM by Keen1 | 32 comments »

I heard a carpenter say one time that caulk was a painter’s best friend. I’m not sure a painter couldn’t have said the same thing about this particular carpenter (The painter was covering up all his mistakes). So what would you consider your best friend in the shop. As most of you know, I’m a weekend lumberjock and I’d have to say my Bessey UniKlamps have proven to be a good friend thus far. Don’t know yet about best friend status. That would still g...

master bedroom closet #1: Master bedroom closet #1

01-02-2008 04:53 PM by Timber_Cruiser | 5 comments »

Well, it is officially 2008 and just like everybody else the new years resolutions have been made. I have even broke one within 24 hours yesterday. I have been motivated and inspired to do a build in our master closet with some basic cabinetry to store clothes folded and some rods to hang clothes in our walk in closet. Currently we have closetmaid wire shelves and rods to hang clothes. I could add more storage for clothes and shoes and it would be more aesthetically pleasing. This of co...
