Outdoor "Coffee" Table #2: Next (baby) steps

2567 days ago by Dorje | 10 comments »

I picked the wood I’m going to use for this project; I’m going to go with Lyptus. I should get down to the lumber store sometime this week… Also, I made some drawings of the top, side, and end. Drawings really are limiting! I’d like to draw this in sketchup, but can barely remember how to draw a rectangle. Actually I can draw a rectangle, but don’t even know how to type in the dimensions I want rather than have to drag the exact distance!!! (Bob Babc...

Teaching our youth

2535 days ago by Jeff | 14 comments »

I wanted to talk to everyone about teaching, as a profession. I am sure that with the talent that I have seen already up to this point that surly there must be a few teachers in the Lj. I recently have become a teacher in high school, teaching my profession, basically Emergency Medicine. I have been an EMT for way to long (15 years) but found that working in the field for 5 years or more I am able to teach what I do through the ROP (regional occupational program). I guess there are two ...

Patio Table #4: The Legs

2497 days ago by shaun | 7 comments »

The curved legs were one of the things on the list of “gotta haves” for this table. I’m still limited to the 4/4 lumber and I don’t own a band saw. So I milled up 8 pieces to 3/4” and glued them up to make four 1 1/2” blanks. I used my jig saw to rough them out then sat down with the sander and a couple cups of coffee. Cut some pieces for a frame to brace the legs and a quick dry fit. And the legs assembled. Details of the frame sup...

Woo Hoo, Part Deux #2: There's gold in them thar logs!

2447 days ago by Douglas Bordner | 25 comments »

The story, for those unfamilar with the first entry, is that I was driving through the neighborhood. Truth be told I had the feeling there was going to be something I was going to find. Highly developed “Free-dar”. I happened upon a yard with the entire length of the sidewalk lined with quartered log sections of a massive maple tree and a sign exhorting me to take all I wanted. I was frustrated because most of the sections were massive. And when I went to toss one in the bed of th...

Seeking help and suggestions on my website...

2418 days ago by Blake | 13 comments »

My wife is a painter, and along with my woodworking we have always dreamed of someday opening a gallery. A few years back we conceived the name ”The Easel Life” for our future storefront and website. I registered the domain name (As you can see there is not much there for now.) My wife has just graduated from San Jose State with a Bachelors in Fine Art. So it is time to start promoting her as an artist. We would like to take the next small step with our webs...

Cutting board problems

2392 days ago by kram2001ca | 10 comments »

I have been making end grain cutting boards for a few months now, without any problems until now. I have been using rock maple and purpleheart, and finishing them with mineral oil and a proper beeswax finish. Recently i made 2 and sent them by airplane to my sister in Ottawa. They were fine perfect before they were shipped, but when they arrived, apparently they were almost as if they werent completely finished sanded. Any ideas on what might have caused this??? Also another one that I ...

I'll probably get shot for this!

2373 days ago by Don | 53 comments »

A number of my LumberJock Mates have been sending me private messages inquiring where I’ve been. Well it’s confession time. I’ve made no secret about being a committed Christian. (That shouldn’t be confused with a Christian who has been committed. LOL) I foolishly volunteered to build and manage our churches website. I say foolishly, because I knew nothing about doing so, other than I’ve been very impressed with Martin’s work here in building this ...

Marine Pens Project and "story" created by "Sawdust2"

2352 days ago by guardian | 11 comments »

Too bad the “pens” story by Sawdust2 is full of untruths and outright lies. You would think a lawyer by profession would get his “story” straight. Check it out on the county records that Steve was not so good a father as professed. His child support was over $12,000 in arrears, and although he may have taken his kids on the weekend and for vacations every year, his alcoholic lifestyle and abuse of the wife was what kept him from getting custody. Notice also how this lawyer/woodworker portrays...
