Since we are woodworkers and doing some construction, I thought I'd post this

06-05-2007 03:27 PM by Karson | 15 comments »

Here’s a truly heartwarming story about the bond formed between a little 5-year-old girl and some construction workers that makes you believe that we can make a difference when we give a child the gift of our time. A young family moved into a house next door to a vacant lot. One day a construction crew turned up to start building a house on the empty lot. The young family’s 5-year-old daughter naturally took an interest in all the activity going on next door and spent much of e...

"Incoming Images of Dusky Wood" --by RusticWoodArt

07-11-2007 01:35 PM by frank | 3 comments »

Incoming Images of Dusky Wood ....working the wood has become a passion of mine, that transcends all elements of time and space, till i am gathered within the character of woody fiber grains, as becoming the appendage of ‘wood art’ who likens of who i am…. It is at times such as this, during the months of July through November or lets just say….until the snow flies my way, that I often become lost within ‘the process’ of all that goes on around me here. ...

Getting ready to enter my projects

08-14-2007 01:25 AM by Jeff | 15 comments »

I have been a member of Lj.com for about a week and a half now and I have enjoyed my time so far. I am getting ready to post a few of my projects, and now the nervs are setting in. From what I can see so far this group of Lumberjocks are very talented. The projects that I see posted are amazing and overwhelmingly great, so I am nervous about showing my work, I am sure that some people get like thins, but I don’t know if my work is of the same caliber, as most evryone at Lj.com. I wi...

Furniture Restoration #11: Reconstructing Inner Spring Seat

09-21-2007 12:41 AM by Paul | 5 comments »

Jute webbing is criss-crossed over the bottom of the frame and tacked in place. Springs are attached (tied) to the webbing. I saved the jute webbing with springs intact and just replaced them in the new frame. I did pull the jute tighter than it was when it was removed. Use had stretched it a bit. The springs are tied together and to the frame to “fix” each spring to a spot and to give the seat it’s general shape. I did remove the original ties because I had ...

Horror Movie SoundFX and more work than I wanted...

10-17-2007 11:41 PM by BarryW | 5 comments »

While I’m sitting around watching Mom…now that I have a CCTV in the shop to keep an eye on her…I have been tearing apart a piano for the wood. Not the best decision I ever made, but I am getting some good hinges and a few fair pieces of wood. The thought now occurring to me is about slicing the piano I have in half, just below the keyboard, and letting the bottom half of the piano be a base for a decent workbench. It has a very heavy base and sides. The casters are remo...

Butcher Block Table #2: Coming Together

11-12-2007 01:34 AM by cckeele | 12 comments »

So far so good. I ran into a couple hickups here and there but im still on target. About now I am wishing I had a drum sander, Jointer and a drill press. Please Santa come soon! These things probably would have made this venture much easier, but with a lil elbow grease and some buckets of sweat I have been able to get most of the hard work done. On to the highlights… Im still sanding, yeah, yeah, yeah….. Got the table base built up and doing a dry fit on the top. I bought th...

My Adventure in Home Remodeling...the Wrong Way, Part Four

01-05-2008 07:04 PM by tat2grl | 1 comment »

She left me holding the pole and staring at the window. There was NO WAY I was going to stand on TOP of the ladder to paint, much less crawl inside a space that was NOT designed for someone to be in and paint from there. I shook my head, walked out to my truck for a smoke and thought about it. I even called Laurie to make sure I wasn’t being stupid. She agreed with me. See, I have a bad leg. A knee surgery that went horribly wrong. Lost use of the leg for the better part of 10 ye...

Festool Open House with Nothing to Sell????

02-13-2008 05:38 PM by JasonK | 7 comments »

Ok, so I know it’s a LOT of money, but I’m one who believes the adage, “You get what you pay for.” As I’ve been getting more involved in my woodworking, I’m quickly realizing that some of the “Big Box” tools that I have just don’t cut it. (Yes, pun intended) So, as the money allows, I’ve been upgrading.I was pretty excited when I found the openhouse section of the Festool website and that there was one coming up near me. So, I mad...

Work In Progress #1: Patio Furniture

03-05-2008 07:28 PM by Ike | 2 comments »

Alright, I have decided that I would like to build my own patio furniture instead of buying a set from “the big box stores.” I took the design idea from a table I saw at one of those stores, but it is slightly different, also I didn’t like the chairs that they had with the set, those are still in design phase. here is the table’s design that I have drawn using google’s sketch up: I’ll continue to work on the chair designs, but I was sort of inter...
