The Shows #6: Beginning Day 7

01-31-2013 02:57 PM by Monte Pittman | 8 comments »

Yesterday was an excersize in futility. Decent crowd. Spend the day sketching numerous items for people without a single order being taken. That doesn’t mean that there is no chance of any of th sketch ups coming through, it just didn’t happen yesterday. From here on, large crowds are expected. Things should be good for the remainder of the week. I was stuck here in town again last night due to weather at my house. 30 mph winds, 1-3 inches of snow and a wonderful -1 (F) for tem...

Nakashima Night Stand part 3 #1: Nakashima Night Stand. part 1

03-28-2013 07:58 PM by andyboy | 5 comments »

It was nice using some harder timber for a change. Tasmanian Blackwood that I found on our river bank after a strong wind in 2009. I also changed from my usual 1:6 angle for softwoods to the preferred 1:8 for hardwoods.Very pleased with the results!!!

The stump

04-28-2013 10:34 PM by matthewcressey | 1 comment »

So today I found a stump today and it was just begging to be made into a side table. So now it’s in my front yard and I am attempting to come up with a plan. First on the list is to have it kiln dried. Than comes flatting and sanding the top than making the legs whatever they turn out to be. So first question is kiln drying it ok? If not why? Second question how do I keep the bark on the stump? Ok third question what is the best way to flatten and remove all the gouges in the...

LJ Interviews #38: HorizontalMike

05-16-2013 09:24 AM by MsDebbieP | 29 comments »

This interview with HorizontalMike is from the May 2013 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag   1. How did you first get started working with wood? As a home owner, I have built the deck projects and an elevated astronomical observatory using noting more than a circular saw and powered miter saw. I always had a desire to do some woodworking as far back as high school. Unfortunately, back in the 1960s my high school counselors were insistent that I take the “academic c...

Burls: What i've got so far.

07-13-2013 02:24 AM by notwhole | 5 comments »

Hey Guys! I’m new the woodworking field but I’m always trying to learn new things and doing my best. I just thought I would show you guys some of the things I’ve been given access in these recent months. One of my neighbors is selling his property and having all of his land cleared out and cut down. With that being said I noticed a year or so before this that he’s got plenty of burled trees littering his property to which he gladly gave me permission to cut down. M...

The Workbench #3: This is NOT super simple

07-29-2013 03:18 PM by debianlinux | 3 comments »

Armed with the requisite cut list of pieces I finally found a free weekend to start doing some assembly. Here in North Carolina we have had a record amount of rainfall in the past 3 months or so and my basement which is really a glorified sump pit hasn’t been the driest place in the state. As I started hauling the lumber back up to the car port I noted quite a bit of it was twisting and skewing. I think maybe pine lumber still grows after having been felled because I found out shortly s...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1117: Amazing Grace

08-30-2013 10:45 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Working with the scroll saw never ceases to amaze me. While many ‘hard core’ woodworkers tend to look at the scroll saw as a lowly lightweight tool of the woodworking industry, I can think of nothing that comes close to matching its ability to turn a clunky block of wood into something that is filled with such beauty and grace. In hearing the term “woodworking” the first that comes to mind usually isn’t the word “graceful”. But every time I use th...

Garage Tool Cabinets #4: Final Assembly and Installation

09-16-2013 02:10 AM by Parsimonia | 0 comments »

I mounted the cabinets by making a ledger board with a 2×6, and a couple of 2×6s on each end. I blocked one end up until it was level, and then set the cabinets on top. I clamped, drilled and screwed both cabinets together. The 2×6 had to be supported in the middle also to get the cabinets to line up. I was surprised that it would bow that much. I had seen a scissors jack one time that I always wanted to get. It props up a cabinet in place, and can raise and lower it...

Sister's Remodel #1: Pantry

11-01-2013 07:38 PM by Nate Meadows | 8 comments »

One of the things my sister really needed was a new pantry. Correction, she needed a pantry period. All she had was a coat closet and a small cupboard. I initially had no intention of blogging about my work at her house. She was and is going through so much that I just put my head down and pushed through it to help her as I could. But as I continued to work, and time moved on and the sting lessoned I considered it. I ended up thinking sharing what I was doing might be good to show that I am u...
