My Grandfathers Woodworking cont... #3: A Few More Pictures

02-18-2011 02:49 AM by DougH | 8 comments »

I had some trouble trying to get a good video of the lathe working but I’ll keep trying. In the mean time, here are some pictures of a sewing box he made for my grandmother. It was started in 1931 and completed in 1934. It has over 2300 pieces.

A first (I think), a magazine gloat.

03-11-2011 06:57 AM by BigTiny | 5 comments »

Greetings and salutations my fellow LJs. Yesterday I came across a fantastic deal on a couple of hundred wood working magazines, two large boxes full to be exact. They were FREE! A guy had them listed on a local buy/sell site as his wife was bugging him to make some extra room in the house. It pays to be the first one to reply some times. I think these will keep me in reading materials for at LEAST a week. (grin)

Table from 200 year old re-claimed timber #3: Finishing up the table

05-02-2011 03:40 PM by Cory | 3 comments »

I spent quite a bit of time flattening and smoothing the table top last weekend. I used mostly my Lee Valley low angle jack plane, a #4 smoother, and card scrapers. I did use a little sandpaper on the edges to break them. The finish is 2 coats of a 50/50 BLO and mineral spirits mix. I find that mix to be much easier to apply than straight BLO. After that cured came 4 coats of General Finishes Armor Seal and a coat of paste wax. That meant the top was complete. Then came the bottom. ...

All I can say is I am very grateful for all I have….this will be a quick post and my heart goes out to all the folks in Joplin Missouri and the unreal devistation that occurred there on Sunday….. On Friday I glued up the bench top sections: Saturday – I worked on getting them semi-flat: On Sunday, I got a text from my sister asking “are you in the basement?” I was actually…..but I ran upstairs to check the weather and immediately r...

Wood Columns Data

08-05-2011 04:52 AM by EdgeWoodWorking | 2 comments »

Here is a list of data that I have compiled for making columns out of 2×4s or 1×4s. It took me several days to get all the info worked out. Now if I want to build a column I can use my charts and find out exactly what I need. My charts will tell me the length of the sides, the number of the sides, how much is routed out to from the circle, and the angle to cut the wood at. Here is my link to my page. Wood Columns Data I would appreciate any and all comments you may have o...

Building a Shed #6: Build Day 4

08-17-2011 01:45 AM by ChadR | 3 comments »

Today I assemblies all the walls and floors together. I used 4 1/2” and 6” hexbolts to attach the pieces together. I did this because I am only renting the house I live at and want to be able to disassemble and take it with me when I move into my own house. Unless my landlord wants to buy it off me (fingers crossed) I designed the shed to be assembled this way and I am really proud of myself that its all coming together. Tomorrow I will hopefully finish the roof.
