One of my partner’s daughter needed a book shelf to fit into an odd space. There was 26” of flat wall and then 13” of wall turned in at 45 degrees. At 11-years old, she needed a space for books and trinkets. My design was to make a series of fixed shelves the would be embedded in the back and honeycomb through the shelf on one side. The build is solid 4/4 poplar for the carcass, face frame and shelves. The back of the main compartment is 3/4 poplar plywood and the bac...
No I didnt get a massive timber splinter! I was making a key Holder from a piece of timber I collected from LLWW AKA degoose when I was there last week Its a bit on the ugly side and of limited use due to its overall shape and condition,but worth saving. This is the widest side: And the other side: A few splits in the end also added to its limited its use: Anyway not to be discouraged I decided to make a key shaped key holder with it. After cutting off the sid...
As you may have noticed in the last post, the barn is already occupied. True, the walls aren’t even done, but friends of our were thinning their herd and offered us a doe and a wether, so I asked for a couple of weeks and quickly built a 20’ x 25’ paddock and partioned the interior of the barn off to separate the goat lounging area, kidding stall, and sleeping platform from the human side that houses the hay crib, the feeder rack, and the access to nest boxes and feed/water ...
My kids asked me what I want for Christmas and I told them I could use some clamps and emailed them a picture of a specialty clamp. Dale Jr. says ” Dad I think you have a clamp addiction”. I responded What is your Point? You can not ever have enough clamps.
”Topping the Tree” ....aspiring to the climb i looked to make it to the top,tree tops bending and nodding in the gusting blown wind,only did the more to allure within me the salivating gustation of desire,desire by fire as fueled from the refiners fire of now i know i can,acclimated to follow the grain of the wood,i drank deeply from the sap as coming by heartwood…. —-and so the climb was made as years rolled by,friends came and went as lost from sight,till in my...

It’s time for a LumberJocks Party. Obi’s opening his new workshop tomorrow Monday April 30, 2007. So I think that we should all get together and welcome him and wish him Luck. Obi Best of luck and many blessing in your new Shop. I’m in for Bagels and Cream Cheese.
I trusted that the bit for my pocket hole jig was correctly set. I was wrong. When I attached the top to the sides and legs, here is the result. I like the way the table looks, but the holes on top are enough to make me pull out my dwindling hairs. As a result, I had to resort to nailing the top to the legs in order to finish the contest and take my little angel to the doctor.UGH! The smaller holes are from the brad nailer.
I am trying to decide on the style corbel that should go on the pool table legs that I am building. Short one: Long One: Which one do you think looks better? Thanks for your input! John Nixon – Buffalo, NY – www.EagleLakeWoodworking.com
