I’m not at all the best speller, writer or wood worker but this web site can really make you feel like you are all of these things. I’m relatively new here as members go and I wanted to take a moment to thank LJs and its members for everything you do for each other. THANKS Keep up the great work everybody. Cheers

Building my Workbench #6: Do these sticks make my slab look flat?

11-10-2016 01:22 PM by HokieKen | 3 comments »

Oh dear… What is he doing? Is this the second entry in a single week? Yes, yes it is :-) I got a couple of free hours last night so decided to sneak in a little bench work. I decided I was going to flatten the slab I glued up over the weekend. But wait, aren’t you supposed to wait until the bench is done to flatten it? Well, yes. And I didn’t completely flatten it, that will be when I finish the build. But, my thinking is that this is the bulk of my top. Once I di...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1800: Some New Woodworking Patterns

11-14-2016 01:31 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

As I began to post this morning, I realized that this is my 1800th blog post. When I started blogging several years ago, I never in my wildest dreams would have thought that I would be capable of writing that many entries! Just thinking of 1800 titles alone just blows my mind. But it has really been nice sharing my creative process with you all and I hope to continue to do so as long as you all want to read about it. I still feel there are several more chapters to write, and I hope you are ri...

How I Do Hand Plane Rehabs #5: Polishing and Refinishing

11-21-2016 02:20 PM by HokieKen | 7 comments »

Well, now that we have our base painted and everything rust-free, let’s turn our attention to the hardware. On this plane, all of the hardware is steel – no brass at all. That makes the polishing a bit anti-climactic. It’s very satisfying to take an old, tarnished brass adjuster knob and polish it up so it looks shiny and new. Not so much with a knurled steel knob. I do steel and brass pretty much the same way though, just with different abrasives depending on the pie...

New adventure into woodworking #1: The "foundation"

09-03-2012 02:10 AM by Dave66 | 6 comments »

I just retired from my second 20-plus-year carreer. That’s over forty – plus years doing something I hated. Now its time for a change. I’m not a professional woodworker, I’m not even very experienced. But, I’ve played with woodwork for more than 50 years. I’ve even made some fairly decent keepsake boxes over the years. Now, I want to get into woodworking in a way to find out what I’m capable of. With the support of my new spouse, I’ve take...

Scofield Study Bible Box Christmas Gift #3: Connecting The Pieces

11-29-2016 03:38 PM by Zabinsky | 2 comments »

For the first real project in my shop, my brother and I purchased an Incra Finger Joint Jig and a cheap dado stack from Home Depot. It did the job but my table saw isn’t made to use a stacked blade. Ignoring the warnings… I used the stack at 1/4” which allowed me to just get the nut on to hold it in place. It worked just fine for the previous project and figured I would just rinse and repeat the steps from before. I cut a bottom plate for the bottom of the box and 1cm by ...
