Thank you to all Lumberjocks

08-05-2009 03:15 PM by Rustic | 3 comments »

I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone for their heartfelt condolences on the loss of my Grandfather. He was laid to rest yesterday. It means so much to me and my family that “total strangers” (of which, to me you are not), gave me such an outpouring of support during this difficult time. I learned yesterday and over the last few days just what an incredible man he really was. He loved everybody. He gave of himself without any expetation of something in return. ...

Sycamore Dresser #2: Sloww process

10-30-2009 05:58 AM by Ben | 7 comments »

I settled on a traditional dresser style. The sides will be frame and panel construction. I could have saved a lot of time had I chosen a style of dresser without visible legs. I honestly spent two weeknights and most of a Saturday on the legs alone. It did not register in my brain that the face and edges of quarter sawn wood do not look the same. I glued a couple of boards together for my legs and realized that I had two visible sides that looked completely different. I ended up planin...

Starting a new project

Hey guys, so I have been away for awhile, but I am all settled into my new place, cut off 14 inches of hair, sold a car, bought a motorcycle, got promoted on my job and ready to start woodworking again in my new garage. I am about to start on a “settee” I called it a couch, but I was corrected… LOL not much on fancy names… Any tips to look out for? This is going to be something that is used regularly…. so delicate is not good – any support bracing ideas?...

Oak Storage Bench #2: Stock Preparation

02-02-2016 09:44 PM by ThomasLightle | 2 comments »

I prefer getting my wood in the rough for two reasons: The first reason is the cost. Rough lumber is incredibly cheaper than 4-side finished wood. The other reason is flexibility. I am able to “find” the best part of the board in the rough lumber whereas, if your wood is pre-finished, you are stuck with what you get.So here is my workflow: LayoutRough lengthRough WidthJoint 1 face and 1 edgeFinal width + 1/16” Joint to final widthPlane to final thicknessFinal lengthLet me...

Questions #1: Want to get into lathe work

12-17-2009 02:31 AM by Jim | 6 comments »

Well, with all my hard work and time put into restoring my great grandfather’s lathe, I finally got it all refurbished. Then it broke. The pulley wheel being aluminum had already taken a beating over the years while in storage and it finally split with the tension of the belt and motor. Long story short, I don’t want to let it become a money sink when it’s a pretty simple lathe. That being said. I still want to do pens and bowls, etc. I’ve done a little resear...
