Stanley No: 40 Brace- Refurbishment #1: My Stanley No: 40 Brace

03-12-2012 09:20 PM by Johnnyblot | 22 comments »

This is a photo taken with my iPhone of the brace being refurbished. I’m really just getting to grips with downloading using the iPhone and Photobucket?? Hopefully it is successful? OMG it works! In this pic you get a closer look at the chuck body- This is held in a ‘cheapo’ vice I bought from ‘ALDI’ (Wal-Mart, but even cheaper, to our American cousins) years ago. It is very handy cos you can adjust it to suit what you are doing. It originally had...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #662: A Nice Quick Little Project

04-05-2012 10:19 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday was spent getting things ready for the site update. Between finishing up the patterns for the new stuff, designing and cutting the new free pattern that I am offering and even drawing up a couple of additional quick designs it kept me pretty busy. I finished the pattern for the calendar topper and that is about ready to go. It came out to be 22 pages long, and includes all 12 months. I left the April and December months for Easter and Christmas respectively, as people can stil...

Porch Glider #11: The Home Stretch

05-06-2012 03:25 AM by Jimi_C | 2 comments »

As of writing this, the porch glider is 100% assembled – no more wood to cut, no more screws to screw. Just a lot of detail work and then the outdoor oil goes on. First up, views of the armrests and the brace that ties them together across the back. I left the piece of wood to the left in order to give me something to brace against when gluing up. I used two wood shims to force the wood up against the shoulder of the other piece, ensuring a perfect 90 degree angle. Once the glue drie...

The old time woodshop journals #4: Sawdust sunday temple (Always stop and listen to the bells)

05-20-2012 08:26 PM by jjw5858 | 8 comments »

This morning was a sunny and clear day out…....the kind of day that actually fit the season. Our earth is ever changing, it seems these days people all over the map are in store for surprises from mother nature, some scary and some just plain hard to figure out…lol. I was driving in my truck…it was crazy out, cars all over, people hustling and racing everywhere. It’s so hard not to find yourself becoming the same way…. impatient, hurried and a bit stressed. ...

slow but sure

06-06-2012 05:22 AM by James Alberding | 4 comments »

So I decided to create a new blog for talking about ongoing additions to my attempt at a workshop. My posts on my current project, Jakes chair, has seemed to be talking a lot about the workshop situation. I’m planning on doing more and more to my shed to make it a work space over time, and another blog contributes to the LJ site I think. I really like this site and want to contribute even though I am a really novice woodworker, and don’t dedicate a ton of time to it as of now. ...

Historic Woodworker Videos #8: Pear Wood - Woodworker's Delight

06-21-2012 01:07 PM by Hoosierwoodcraft | 2 comments »

This video started with an examination of a musical recorder patterned after Phillippe Bolton; and a look back and back to the process of how one pear tree made the wood for this instrument. It is a tribute to the “wood” in the term: “woodworker”. This video can be found at

Another Sale!

08-04-2012 04:55 PM by RussellAP | 4 comments »

For those of you who don’t know, I make Adirondack Chairs.I’ve been in business since about early may and have made a total of 7 chairs so far. Nothing has sold. I had the idea that I would make matching chairs and a table and maybe it would fare better than the singles. In less than 4 days on craigs list, I’ve sold two sets at $400 each. Just got my latest sale today, it’s a nursery here in town that wants a good display next to their fountains. Things are...

My First Workbench #7: Day 7: Progress and lots of it!

08-19-2012 12:22 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Got a lot done today. My wonderful wife got up with the kids this morning to allow me to get down early to the garage and continue work on the workbench. My first task was to rip the 2×4s for the top by about 1/2” to make nice flat edges, which will (in theory) make a nice smooth, sharp edged top. (Just a note to my fellow Lumberjocks—-this is just copied from my wordpress blog which is riddled with pictures which took me a long time to edit and post…so since I hav...
