A Woodworker's Guilt (Subtitle: What's in a name?)

01-26-2007 04:07 AM by Ethan Sincox | 9 comments »

The opening article of the most recent issue of Woodworking Magazine is by Chris Schwarz. In it, he talks about buying furniture vs. making it and some of the thoughts going through his head regarding that forbidden subject amongst woodworkers. Funny how life is full of little coincidences, isn’t it? I must admit, I have a brand new dining room table and four chairs being delivered to my house a week from this Saturday. I sort of feel guilty about it. Then again, I don’t ...

Day 4

03-05-2007 10:30 PM by DaveC | 6 comments »

Now I do some final shaping. I use the rasp (Nicholson #50 patternmakers rasp) to get the bow shaped. This is the basic shape the bow has through the whole length. Getting wider towards the handle. This particular profile is similar to the English style longbow. There are other profiles that also work well with this wood. Now I break out the “secret weapon” of bow making. (Shhhh…..) The scraper shave! This particular one is call the bowyer’s edge sold by Dean Torges. The...

Series #1 Begining Thorsen Table Attempt

04-05-2007 05:56 PM by jockmike2 | 9 comments »

Geez Louiz, I’ve been railroaded. Not really, I’ve found out I have a lot of friends and support and it gives me, well it makes me feel kinda mushy. Anyway, with their support I’ve decided to jump in the fray and give this table a try. Like I said before the worse that could happen is my wife would end up with my version of a green and green table. I do have a turninig to finish on the lathe today and post that, then I guess its down to the nitty gritty of planing and jointi...

Explaining an absence

05-10-2007 06:46 PM by Dan Lyke | 6 comments »

I had hopes of perhaps pulling out a Thorsen table entry. Certainly I didn’t want to be a drive-by poster here at Lumberjocks. But a couple of things have come up, I’m now working several evenings and 6 days a week, and my current “for me” project is finishing up a Radio Controlled glider that I’ve had in the queue for years and years. I suppose balsa wood qualifies as “woodworking”, but a few ribs snuck in here or there hardly makes for good pictu...

Kitchen Cabinets #1: Prologue

06-09-2007 01:47 AM by Zuki | 10 comments »

Well . . . Im starting one of my largest projects to date . . . a set of kitchen cabinets for our new home. These will be made from solid poplar with no glues or adhesives. I will be using pocket hole joinery throughout the entire project. First step is to order the lumber. We will be getting it from a local lumber warehouse who will have to get it from Quebec or Ontario. Prior to ordering I need to know how much lumber I will need for the project. DW has a detailed plan of the cabi...

Events at our cabin! #6: Logging operation, not by choice!!

08-20-2007 02:07 AM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 15 comments »

Barb was feeling better last Thursday, so we took a jaunt up to our cabin for the day. We new in advance what to expect when we got there. Our good Neighbor called us a about it. A big old Black Spruce tree, between 90, & 100 years old, had blown down right in front of our cabin. He was kind enough to cut some of the lower branches that were on our dock. We were fortunate, because it missed or dock by an eye lash. It destroyed a glider, but I didn’t feel too bad, because...

A Special Visitor

11-14-2007 08:25 AM by Phil Brown | 2 comments »

I was delighted to have a special visitor this afternoon just before I left on my trucking run. Having just completed Jim’s casket,, my wife called his wife Carol to make arrangements for delivery, and was very surprised to hear Jim’s voice at the other end of the line. He was home from the hospital and sounded chipper. After subsequent phonecalls and a visit to their home, my wife informed me that Carol would be coming over to view the cas...
