Looking for salvage ideas

05-23-2008 03:04 AM by Greg Wurst | 5 comments »

My neighbor was throwing-away a stair railing and I hate to see oak go to waste: My initial though is to tear it apart and salvage the square pieces and rip the base into a couple strips. That still leaves a lot of scrap wood, so I’m looking for idea on what I can possibly do with it. If you have any suggestions, let me know. Thanks, Greg

"One Man's Treasure .." Turned Stool Project #1: Setting the Stage

06-20-2008 03:40 PM by mike | 2 comments »

Over a series of blog entries I’d like to present a project that builds turning skills, has very low materials cost, is fun to do, and the kids and grandkids will love it too The project is a wood stool with turned frame components and a woven rush seat. The basic materials for the turned frame components are likely to be free and might even be in your firewood pile at this moment.But first a little background. I learned this technique from Temple Blackwood an awesome turner and a great...

The Craftsman's Path #42: Turned Walnut Bowl

07-14-2008 02:43 AM by Mark Mazzo | 3 comments »

I don’t consider myself an accomplished turner…yet. Though, I’m working on it! I like to turn and the relative instant gratification that turning projects can offer. I had not turned anything in a while but, recently I spied a small off-cut of Walnut in the shop that was left over from the sofa table project. It looked like it had a bowl hiding inside it. Read on and I’ll walk you through the process I followed to create the Walnut bowl. Thanks for reading!

The Non-Electric Chair #2: My hoped-for end result

08-04-2008 01:43 PM by lethentymill | 4 comments »

I thought it would be interesting for other Lumberjocks to see what it is that I am attempting to achieve. The image below is a chammer carver chair; it is the fifteenth project in the Lethenty Mill furniture making course. (Apologies for the small image – I don’t currently have a better one.) In this blog, I am attempting to make a chammer carver chair by hand, i.e. without the use of electricity or machine tools.

Constructing "Old 99" #5: Rolling along

08-29-2008 01:45 PM by MrWoody | 4 comments »

I sanded the cove on the front wheel assembly first thing this morning. Front and rear wheel blocks. The wheels for the engine drive need holes drilled 9/16” from the center of the axle hole. From past experience I know it’s important that these holes are as accurate as possible. So I took a small piece of axle dowel and found center and put a wheel on it. From center I marked 9/16”. A tip: when you want to remove the dowel from the wheel, wrap the dowel with sand paper a...

Divided Light doors #4: The rest of the project

11-28-2008 02:08 AM by Les Hastings | 5 comments »

The two smaller divided light doors were in individual cabinets that set on each end of the vanity. Between those two cabinets is a curved bonnett connecting the two cabinets together. There will also be a crown wraps the the top of the bonnett and continues around the room. Thought maybe you’d like to see what the doors were going in. Here’s a few pictures with it all together. Thanks for having a look.

Crash and Burn...

12-23-2008 07:42 PM by SteveKorz | 6 comments »

Well, it finally happened. My computer crashed equivelant to falling out of the sky at 10,000 feet. The registry has crashed and burned somehow, and it’s turned off all my hardware devices, modem, etc. So, this is seriously cutting into my lumberjocks time. I was able to log in today breifly to post this. However, it looks like I’ll have to continue to take a brief vacation for a bit till the computer is operational, or until I finally break down and buy a new one (which is ...

Garage Re-Do #18: Super Sucker Completed

03-09-2009 05:24 PM by MyOldGarage | 0 comments »

Whew! Last night I put the finishing touches on the new filter project for the dust collector. The biggest challenge was the bag and getting that all together. I emptied the old bag and contents into a huge 55 gallon contractor style (2mil thickness) garbage bag. When I went to put the system back together I just grabbed that bag and put it back together. There was a metal band around the old top filter, so I used that on the plastic bag and tightened it up. I anxiously flipped th...

question about luan

04-13-2009 05:59 AM by abuck | 2 comments »

I am starting a table saw station and my budget is low. Was at menards and noticed 3/4 luan ply is the same price as 3/4 ac ply and looks a lot better. usually I am not one who cares about looks of tools and extensions of tools (will remedy that as budget grows) but i am wondering if the luan is a valid choice. I have never worked with it so I am hoping someone has.
