Reclaimed barnwood .

03-23-2010 03:13 PM by john | 21 comments »

In the last few months i have been watching my barn wood pile slowly fading away . It may have something to due the fact that i built close to 50 birdhouses in the last year . Well a few days ago i was out for a drive and i stumbled onto this old barn that was falling down .It is located about 5 miles out of town from where i live . I went and talk to the owner and he mentioned that it was great timing because he planned on taking the barn down this coming May . I told the farmer who i was...

WoodBuzz #2: Features to include on Woodbuzz?

04-20-2010 04:34 PM by pashley | 6 comments »

So, what features to include on Woodbuzz – my possibly upcoming woodworking website that is focused on reference, news, and other stuff? Here’s some ideas; I’d like yours. • Plans. A picture of the piece, a brief description, indicate whether it’s free or paid, and a link to the site. • Sketchup Plans. Your plans that you’d like to share with the community for free. • Woodworking software. Planning software, like Sketchup, and related plugins; layout so...

Canoe #6: Fiberglassing the interior

05-03-2010 10:32 PM by Woodcanuck | 0 comments »

One thing I forgot to mention was what we did to seal up any holes/gaps in the hull before we did the fiberglassing. Even though we soaked a lot of epoxy into the fiberglass, and it will fill in most of the gaps, we did a bit of proactive work first. We mixed up some epoxy with some of the cedar sawdust (of which we had plenty) and made a woodfiller which we rubbed into any gaps or holes (yes, the staples holes got filled). For the most part this ended up looking pretty seamless once it wa...

Alternative use for a workbench

07-25-2010 04:45 PM by Brokewood | 10 comments »

I was at a steak house a few days ago when I suddenly noticed that the tables were actually made of old workbenches – vises and all! Personally I see this as a waste – I’m using an old kitchen table for a workbench and this steakhouse is using workbenches as tables! Sorry for the poor quality of the photo, the only camera available was my phone camera…

No Deleting I Guess

08-06-2010 04:53 PM by R.A. Ray | 2 comments »

So, as far as I can tell, there isn’t any way to delete blog posts on LJ which is annoying but not wholly unexpected. Also, Tumblr didn’t import the first post I made so this post is another test as well as a call for help: Do any other (Lumberjocks? Jocks? Jockers? LJs?) of you use Tumblr to import your LJ blog? Does anyone know how to delete an LJ blog post?

Recycle those plastic shopping bags

08-20-2010 06:39 PM by mcoyfrog | 9 comments »

WOW I’m so excited. My wife brought home a book from the library the other day, and among other things there was a section about making purses, wallets, pillows etc. from fused together plastic shopping bags. Well me being the cheapskate that I am (oops I mean recycling conscious citizen) decided to try this out but apply the technique in a roofing application, and possible siding too. I have a second chicken coop i need to finish up in the next couple of weeks and I thought maybe...

Ezee-Feed Progress #1: New Movie for Ezee-Feed.

09-02-2010 06:21 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 18 comments »

Hi everyone, The latest on the Ezee-Feed front is that a short video we’ve been working on for the past few months, has been completed. I’m pleased with the company that produced it for us, and if anyone is looking to have something similar created, I can highly recommend this outfit. Just PM me for their contact info. There is a discount link at the end, for those that are interested. Thanks for looking. Lee

Not quite in the workshop... #26: Chillin out, and giving my back some time to rest.

09-15-2010 12:51 AM by dbhost | 3 comments »

Those that follow my Journey Into The Workshop blog series no doubt have heard me repeatedly lament about my back as of late. I have given my overworked back muscles way more than they bargained for, well since I returned from Oregon in very early August. Nearly on a nightly basis, and almost all day on each weekend day I have been building, cleaning, painting, or demolishing something around the house, and the workshop trying to finish getting both my home, and my workshop in order. Now f...

Figured Maple and Walnut Coffee Table #1: Getting started

10-10-2010 03:57 AM by bohnsai | 2 comments »

I figured I’d start a blog about a project from start to finish so other readers can follow my progress and hopefully learn from my inevitable mistakes in the process ;-) I also wanted to show readers how to make complex furniture with limited tools and space. So a little about the project: I sold my crappy yet still somewhat pricey plywood and veneer coffee table/end tables a little while ago on Craigslist and have been desperately needing to fill the void. My eventual goal is to...
