Dreamweaving Nightstreams of a Woodweaver ---by RusticWoodArt

01-10-2007 02:44 PM by frank | 4 comments »

”Dreamweaving Nightstreams of a Woodweaver” ....smells of wood come drifting across sensual fields of never forgotten places i have been,and so closing my eyes i fall back into the arms of the ‘dreamweaver’,palates of sweet smelling and dust sweated glandular nodes come my way,where the first one in line to get the feel is this jutting angular nose of so i breathe…. —-words come and go in the ‘nightstreams’ of swallowing light,as i remembe...

1015/66 = 15.38 - Maybe I do Have a Problem

02-22-2007 11:41 AM by Don | 13 comments »

My buddy Shawn pointed out this statistic. It represents my average number of posts per day since becoming a LumberJock in December ‘06. He accused me of being addicted, and I responded with, Maybe I do have a problem. First, I want to apologize for being a blog-hog. Now that Shawn has brought this to my attention, I can hear the collective LumberJock groan every time I make a post. I can hear my Buddy Mark DeCou protest that if I only posted something with content, and my arty...

Personalize Your Pulse View

Could our Pulse get even better? You bet! Let me introduce our new powerful Pulse filter: This filter widget allows you to be selective about the things you want to see on the Pulse page. You can quickly restrict the type of activities you want to see at any given time. Just switch the first drop-down to Projects and the Pulse will display only the activities from the Projects section – same with the Blogs, Forums, Workshops and Jocks. Are you interested only in the posts star...

Vroom Vrrrooooom! (race car bed) #2: Are We There Yet?!

04-30-2007 04:23 PM by Allen | 2 comments »

The bed is nearly complete, just a little more painting to do. This weekend the in-laws are coming to help me get it from the garage to my son’s 2nd floor bedroom. Every day he asks me, “Is my car bed ready? Are you still painting? Can I see it?” Note to self: Never again shall my wife be allowed to apply, nay, inflict paint on a project which I have built. She knows how to do it properly, but lacks the patience and thus the bed required 4 coats to get it evened out. I believe she must ...

Kitchen Remodel #4: Cutting the Tenons for the Stiles and Rails

05-31-2007 11:56 PM by Karson | 3 comments »

Cutting the tenons and fixing the mortises. In an earlier blog I was talking about story sticks and laying out the mortise cuts for the legs. I further stated that in my reply to Bob that: “The rails at the top and bottom have a 1/4” grove cut in them to allow for plywood for the insert. The top rail ended up with a 1/2” cut for the tenons, where it touched the panel, while the bottom one had still the 1/4” cut. Why the difference. ??” Well I found out why the difference. I miscalculate...

Why Some "Pine" May Not Be The Right Wood For Some Outdoor Furniture In Some Areas, Some of the Time

08-09-2007 03:25 AM by Mark A. DeCou | 15 comments »

I have a great friend that is learning to do woodworking. He has been working hard at it the past 5 years, or so, and building some adult Adirondack Chairs was his first entry into making his own project. I suggested a curved seat, and a curved back for comfort (I had spent about 18 months perfecting my own Adirondack chair design, before I gave up), but he wanted to make them simpler. He found a plan on the internet, and went to work. They started out as gifts, and then he decided to s...

Finally, My Dream Shop #6: Good to Go

10-14-2007 06:13 PM by Calgirl | 5 comments »

Well, the stumps are ground and we’re ready to start bringing in the fill and preparing the foundation this week. We have the permit and zoning approval. The cement sub came out and placed flags for the extension off of the driveway, and also to demark where the foundation of the shop will sit. My contractor says that it will take 4 trucks of fill for the driveway extension and the shop foundation. They are going to have to approach the shop on the grass beside the driveway and will...

Project based learning

11-08-2007 08:28 PM by Betsy | 11 comments »

So I’ve been doing a lot of “twiddling” in the woodshop lately and have realized I’m not really getting very far. I make a lot of the same things over and over because I’ve gotten good at them. And that’s ok. But I did not get into the hobby of woodworking to make one or two things really well. I got into it to be creative and have fun, etc. Lately, I’ve been honing my hand tool skills by practicing chopping dovetails, dados, planing, sharpening, e...

Everybody I have come into contact with so far has been so very nice and I can’t wait to get this going, however last night I couldn’t figure out how to post my items on the projects page as suggested ,well I kinda figured that part out except the pictures (most of them anyway) will not fit into the thumbnail size and like I said I am very new to the computer thing so if someone out there could help me out here or give me a suggestion I sure would appreciate it. I sure want to bec...
