Beginning Woodworker Just Starting Out #6: New Toys

07-01-2010 06:50 AM by Jimi_C | 5 comments »

Well, one of these I actually got a while ago, I just haven’t had any time to play with it… I got the #8 late last year, and it has sat around due to the fact that it had a lever cap that was cracked in half (in the picture, it’s in the bottom right). Well, I finally snagged a new lever cap off of ebay, the same day I finally won a #71. I’ve dated the #8 to 1910-1918, based on the patent numbers, adjusting knob size, etc., and the seller of the replacement l...

Danish Oil

05-22-2012 12:03 AM by thecarpentershands | 4 comments »

So, a fellow carpenter just told me about danish oil so naturally, i picked some up. I just put it on a cherry and ash box which I will be finishing soon and WOW! I was blown away by the enhancement of the oil. I have mainly been using linseed oil, shellac and polyurethane lately but I really think danish oil is going to open pandora’s box of finishes. Again, I’ll say WOW! God bless.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #742: Pieces Cut - On to Packaging

06-24-2012 11:06 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

We finished cutting the pieces for the 500 kits yesterday. Everything went quite smoothly. It took us less than three hours to finish cutting the 80 kits that were remaining. Not too bad, I think. Afterwards, we did a complete and thorough cleaning of everything. We vacuumed from the floor to the ceiling and everything in between. The whole process took about an additional half hour, which wasn’t too bad considering. We are now ready for our final stages of the projects. Near...

Building a 25' Ply on Frame Cabin Cruiser #15: Slow but steady resumes! -- resin and final chine log fitting

07-27-2017 12:52 AM by AlTriolo | 2 comments »

We glued the keelson in place 2 and 3 days ago. (No pic.) Now, some of the most difficult work for the hull is now behind us! We finished cutting and shaving the frames to receive the keelson, and this includes the stem. We are quite pleased with how it came out. Along the way we found that I mismeasured a frame! I was using a 48” ruler and the measurement should have been either 23.5” or 24.5”. Well, because the ruler is marked 1-48” in both directions, ...

Safey Checkup for the New Year

02-05-2010 06:27 AM by KnotWright | 9 comments »

So today I’m browsing around here on Lumberjocks, checking out the projects, the blogs, and the workshops. I always play a little game when I’m checking out the workshops, “where in the world is the extinguisher” sorta like that “Where’s Waldo” I give bonus points when I spot em. I also am on the look out for those “hidden” and not so hidden “GOTCHA’s” you know those things we know we shouldn’t do, but hec...

Lets See, BLOG= Buy lots of Goodies, Yeah that must be it. Who is up for a trip to the wood store? I guess that all the experienced Bloggers are rolling their collective eyes by now. SO, on with the update. My Sawing partner and I put in a little time this weekend with the sawmill, and the results were nice. I know some might think this is not a real woodworking project, But i think it’s a good start for me and possibly others and I thought i might share a few pictures with all. We r...

2 x 4 Project #1: A one entry blog

01-08-2008 08:56 PM by CutNRun | 13 comments »

Yesterday, I posted a taper jig project. The taper jig was used in my entry for the 2×4 Project. Before the taper jig was made, I had to locate a 2×4 to use. This was relatively easy. I knew a local lumber yard carried very high quality Douglas fir dimension lumber for use in finish work. I located a completely clear, tight grained 8’ board. The only downside was it cost substantially more than the typical big box store stud. Oh well, this is for FURNITURE, not being st...

Bamboo #2

10-28-2010 01:12 AM by WoodArtbyJR | 5 comments »

Well, here are the steps that I accomplished to get to this point. I did run the cut strips thru the drum sander to clean them up a little and to take any imperfections out so the glue would hold better, at least that was the plan. I hope to take the clamps off tomorrow and maybe run it thru the drum sander to see if my design will hold true. Misc. bamboo pieces I have to work with Cut blanks to be cut into strips Cut strips Strips turned on edge Bundled edge pieces Hopefu...

Updating the shop #2: Bench Completed

03-15-2011 12:02 AM by mrg | 5 comments »

So this past weekend I was able to complete the workbench with the help of my wife. I found that drilling holes perfectly straight with a hand drill is not as easy as one may think. I had to re-drill the holes in the legs slightly larger to make up for my inaccuracy. My bench top drill press is just a little small to be able to drill thru a 4×4. It worked great to do the recesses for the nuts to go on the rods. After altering the legs we were able to assemble the bench pretty easily....
