Walnut Bread Box with Marquetry #1: Let us break bread together ...

04-04-2014 03:35 AM by Harriman | 3 comments »

Well, hello everyone. I’m new to Lumberjocks and happy to be a part of the community (I always wanted to be a jock!). I’m looking forward to sharing a bit of the process as I build a bread box for a friend from my college years. (It’s the least I can do since I missed his 40th birthday.) I was casting about for design ideas when my lovely wife reminded me that the lid to our bread box had just recently fallen with a crash onto the kitchen floor. Looks like I’m going to...

Five years later, Workshop Remodel. Going from pretty to functional #9: The Assembly/Outfeed Table

04-23-2014 01:53 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

I’ve been using the assembly table in the shop for a little while now. I made the murphy bed and a couple other items and it came in handy. I like it.Please realize that my idea of an outfeed table as a combo assembly/outfeed table is a preference of mine and not necessarily of others. I downgraded from a woodworking bench with vices and such to this after I found that I needed outfeed and assembly capabilities more than a workbench. I use a combination of hand and power tools. I use po...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1318: Random Thoughts

05-16-2014 11:29 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

This week has been rather strange. I can't quite put my finger on it, but it didn't have the usual 'flow'.  It seems that I was fluttering from here to there and while I was accomplishing some things, I don't quite feel that I was as organized as I could be and therefore not as efficient.  My writings here have felt strange as well. I feel as if I have been all over the place work-wise, so reporting to you all each day only exemplifies that I am not in a pla...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1348: Embracing Failure

07-01-2014 12:51 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

No one  likes to fail. I don't think anyone in their right mind would go into something or try something with the hope of failing. It just wouldn't make sense. Yet – like it or not, failure is a real part of our everyday lives, and try as we may, failing from time to time is something that is usually unavoidable. Failure is an important part of the learning process. Many scholars and scientists know that without experiencing some form of failure, it is nearly impo...

handsawgeek's Lathe Stand: A Hand Tool Build For a Tailed Appliance #3: READY…FIRE…AIM !!

08-13-2014 02:29 PM by handsawgeek | 7 comments »

I am a musician. I play electric and acoustic violins, guitars, and mandolins. Not as a professional. I rather view myself as a professional amateur, performing quite frequently in public, but rarely for pay. As any musician is fully aware, live music performance is fertile ground for making mistakes. Wrong notes, missed notes, out-of-tune notes, mis-cues, wrong keys, forgotten passages, wrong tempos, the list goes on. And that’s not to mention difficulties caused by those pesky ...

Picture of Heavy Log on Trailer

09-04-2014 09:32 PM by JebStuart | 0 comments »

Some time ago I saw a picture of a VERY heavy log loaded onto a trailer which was hitched to a pick-up truck. The heavy log on the trailer resulted in the chassis of the truck being bent. Anyone else remember seeing that picture? If so, please post it here or send me a link to where I can find it. Thanks.

Just for Fun... #89: The Lid (Part Three)...

09-29-2014 05:59 PM by littlecope | 11 comments »

And, happily, the last part!You are probably as tired as I am of looking at this thing… Though very little has actually been produced here, 12 hours of Work and almost two weeks time have been consumed by this one detail!Anyway, we left off with all but one of the slats cut at the appropriate angles… The process of pegging these on with wooden doweling was a simple one, but care was needed!Each Slat was first given a quick but thorough sanding… Most of them had been pa...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1444: I "Hatched" a New Idea!

11-15-2014 02:05 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It has been a couple of very exciting days for me. While some of you who read every day may have thought that I didn't post because I had nothing interesting to share, I assure you it was quite the opposite. I have so much fun news and many different and new ideas for designing and I was just so engrossed with them that I didn't take the time to post. Besides – I thought it would be better to wait until I had something to show you so you wouldn't think I had gone completely ...

Tools tools, I love toys, I mean tools #6: Thanks American Express for subsidizing my Bessey Tradesman clamps on Small Business Saturday

12-07-2014 02:23 AM by paxorion | 6 comments »

Every year (for the last 5 years), my wife and I look forward to Small Business Saturday to cash in on “free money” to spend on our hobbies. This year, the offer was for $10 back per transaction over $10, up to 3x per card number (not account, card number). So armed with all of my many AMEX cards, I went to my local Woodcraft on Small Business Saturday and executed my clamp procurement. While most people went crazy picking them clean of Jet parallel clamps, I had my eye set ...
