Advent Calendar

11-12-2012 05:57 AM by GrandpaAndrew | 3 comments »

Here’s a couple of pictures of the Advent Calendar’s my wife and I are making – we have three in progress. The calendar is made out of 1/4 plywood that I cut on the scroll saw. My wife painted the scene on the front. Behind the doors are little boxes to hold the little gifts. Not great woodworking but a fun project: Here is the last one to be painted. I still need to make the doors on this one:

Rookie set of Carving Tools

12-14-2012 08:27 PM by woodmaker | 5 comments »

I’ve been fascinated by other peoples carving abilities and would like to try my hand at it. However, I don’t want to spend a fourtune for a carving set only to realize I suck or find out I just don’t like it.I’ve seen carving sets of 12 (mallet tools) and hand size for as low as $60.00 all the way to almost a thousand for Pfeil or other Swiss made. Any recommendations? I’m all ears (and not much money). :-)

My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #5: First Band Saw, New Horizons

03-11-2013 01:58 PM by Ethan Harris | 3 comments »

Hello Readers, Well Yesterday I finished setup of my first band saw. I started at the low end because that is what my business could afford and I am also learning the ropes. I read lots of reviews for the Ryobi Band saw from Home Depot and after some consideration and education on Band Saw tuning, I went out and bought one… That was Saturday. Turns out the one I picked was busted so after returning and swapping for store credit, traveling to a different store 20 miles away, inspectin...

Non-stabilized spalted wood pen blanks - question on stabilizing liquid

03-25-2013 07:30 AM by grandpageorge | 1 comment »

I received a group of 6 non-stabilized spalted wood pen blanks. Tried to turn one, and had a large chunk come out almost immediately. I was able to finish it, but mostly with sandpaper for shaping. I saw a stabilizing liquid on line. Has anyone used something like that to stabilize wood, and does it work?

A Small Woodworking Shop Expansion #17: Ready to Sheath the Lean-to. A Few Scores. And a Surprise Inspection !!

05-29-2013 01:22 AM by RonInOhio | 11 comments »

I was going to wait till I had the lean-to sheathed before making another post, but decided to go aheadand bring things up-to-date. Its been raining the last several days on and off. Now its coming down steadily so its holding up things a bit. As mentioned in my last post, I detoured the expansion to build a lumber storage lean-toon the back of the shed. Since the last blog entry, I have finished framing the lean-to . I started cutting the roof sheathing. It will be done in three pieces...

Just some planes restored #21: Yes, the Pre-lateral may need some extra love.

07-09-2013 12:14 AM by Don W | 27 comments »

Its been a while since I’ve written a restoration blog, so I figured I’d document this possible save. I’ve started finding a few pre-laterals and kind of like them. My “collector” status has risen to a new level so I don’t mind working on something that will be for history’s sake only. I found this #5 in an antique shop. It wasn’t marked and I had a few other items so I asked the owner what he wanted. The conversation went something like thi...

Figuring out how to post and interact with you guys

07-26-2013 09:12 AM by Louis15 | 4 comments »

I have been building houses, boats and furniture for about 35 years but this is my first attempt at communicating with others. It will take me awhile to figure out the picture thing and other pad related issues but here goes. Thanks for the welcoming greetings.As you can guess, my passion now is Louis furniture. I plan a Louis 15 bombe chest or desk as soon as I figure out how to get plans to build a router powered milling machine.

Life sized tasks

08-11-2013 11:15 PM by JustaLilJoinery | 2 comments »

Well I haven’t gotten any scale work done BUT I do have my bookshelf 3/4 done. It was a gaping hole in my wall from where I moved a closet short (don’t worry I had 3 in a row..Yes, 3 closets 3’ deep and from 3 – 6’ long each! In a row! No deval on the house there) in order to make room for a bigger kitchen on the other side and turned the remainder into the concept of a built in shelf…That was a few years ago…It sat with the materials laid up on the ...

In the past I have received many of compliments from a lot of my friends here on LUMBERJOCKS.

From that I kept burning, and burning, and burning, lolol until I had to many burnings. I would do them just to have s...
