Jewelry Case Build #9: Assembly and Hinges

06-27-2014 02:59 AM by RoadHogg | 2 comments »

Today I began assembly. Everything went really well. One small error I had to fix, Once the glue was dry, I noticed the little drawers were slightly proud of the side panel. This would prevent the door from closing. I just took out each drawer and sanded a bit off the face. They fit fine now. I had to chisel out eight tiny hinge mortises. I’ve also never done those before. They turned out quite nice. I only have to do a final fit on the doors and screw them into place then ...

The Craftsman's Path #11: Sam Maloof on design

10-13-2007 05:02 PM by Mark Mazzo | 0 comments »

I’ve recently been doing some reading on various designers in search of guidance and inspiration. Sam Maloof has always been one of my favorites. In doing so, I came across some quotes from Maloof that express some of his philosophies on woodworking and design. In this post on my blog I explore these and share some of my thoughts on them. I’d be interested in hearing the perspectives on this subject from all of you LumberJocks out there. Thanks for reading!

Thank You Card #3: The Grand Finale (A finish that really makes this mahogany POP!)

04-29-2008 03:24 AM by teenagewoodworker | 11 comments »

So now its time for the grand finale, a finish that really brings this piece to life. through some test piece and some inspiration (thanks to this woodworker) I began to dye some piece with some general finishes dyes. When i first put the Vintage Cherry Water based Dye Stain on the mahogany i knew i had a winner. It might be hard to see in these pictures but it really brings out the beauty in Mahogany. So the first step (after much sanding) is to apply a coat of the Vintage Cherry. I also ...

Woodworking Business #6: Two Woodworking Business Blogs

04-05-2011 02:25 PM by billb | 1 comment »

I haven’t posted here in some time because of suffering through a bad flu that really put me down. In spite of the flu shot, which I take every year, this monster was overwhelming and it feels great to be nearly well again. I decided to catch up a little by sharing a couple of my woodworking business blogs where I was posting a great deal before the flu monster overtook me. One of them is called the Woodworking Business Blog and the latest posts are about several of the jobs I did...

Ever Had One Of Those Days!!!!!!!!!!!!

10-03-2011 01:30 AM by GaryD | 6 comments »

O.k. Weather is finally cooperating so that I can get back in the shop. All th family matters are taken care of, in other words, I have time to go to the shop and build some picture frames for a co-worker. Okay, not a really big project, but time in the shop is great anytime you can get it. Okay so go out there and get the wood ready, get my measurements, ahh the sound of the table saw running. Start trimming the tongue and groove off the wood and then was going to spit the wood into tw...

Cutting Boards? How hard can it be??

12-04-2013 03:57 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Let’s see, I had a couple scraps of Black Walnut sitting around the shop. Also had what was left from a Black Cherry floor joist ( From an old barn tear down) Both were being abused by every new-to-me handplane that came into the shop. Decided to try and make SOMETHING out of them, before they wound up as just a pile of shavings. Edges were planed square and ready for glue-ups. Didn’t have a way to make slimmer pieces, so I just used the scraps as is. Got a slab out o...

hand plane group therapy (my journey into it) #6: With help from group therapy router be!!

05-21-2012 12:59 AM by jacob34 | 8 comments »

So I need to give a shout out to Dallas, Big yin, and Sylvain ( sorry if I spelled wrong) for this installment of my hand plane group therapy session. I posted a forum on router planes purely out of curiosity as I really did not know much about them. The before mentioned jocks pointed out the ease of building one and pointed me in the right direction. I have built my first and while it did not turn out exactly as I wanted ( mostly my skill level and lack of patients ) it is functioning and ga...
