Wine Crate Checkmate

428 days ago by DonGriffith | 1 comment »

One rainy day a couple of weeks back I was scrounging around for a quick project when my wife. near her wits end dealing with the three screaming, growling creatures with gnashing teeth we call children, told me that unless I found something for them to do over the weekend, she was leaving me for the David Hasselhoff look-alike UPS delivery man. Never being sure if she’s serious, I decided to not take any chances and figured I’d kill two birds and quiet three kids with one ston...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #570: Welcoming 2012

962 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I spent the day yesterday in a flurry of activity. Perhaps it was because I was feeling more like myself but I also think that it was because I wanted to tie up some loose ends and start the new year off properly. I found myself full of energy as I tidied up things and organized and put everything in its place. It felt really good to do so after the chaos of the holiday season. Keith was busy preparing several pens for turning. While he hadn’t heard how the three shops that carri...

Wall Mirror/Shelf/Drawer Unit #2: The Dust Capade

1420 days ago by plantek | 0 comments »

Well I’m off to a good start. Tonight I milled my lumber 4/4 down to 3/4” & 1/2”, and was able to cut to length all the 3/4 pieces. I got to use my new DeWalt 734 planer for the first time (not including test pieces last weekend) and let me tell you I got schooled when it comes to keeping my eye on my DC. I have a 6 gal shop vac attached to a Onieda cyclone that sits atop a 5 gal bucket. I didn’t empty the 5 gal before I got started… Yeah… Needless to...

Carving envy

2731 days ago by Dan Lyke | 9 comments »

I’m pretty gifted. I probably say that with some conceit, because I’m pretty conceited too, but I still have reason to believe it’s true. I’m good at a lot of things, and I’ve had any number of personality issues because I approach the world at a high enough level that people have trouble keeping up with me. One of the things that reading LumberJocks is doing is teaching me humility. And it’s doing this in two ways. To me, there are two types of artis...

Hand Tool Ramblings #2: Getting Moxon-ated

240 days ago by rustythebailiff | 0 comments »

After seeing numerous posts, and watching it in action on The Woodwright’s Shop, I decided that the double screw bench vise just might come in handy. I sure could’ve used it when I was sawing the 40 sets of dovetails for my tool chest! Here in sunny FLA (no joke, it’s December 23rd and it’s 80 degrees plus with high humidity. Yuck) we don’t have the benefit of the fantastic lumber yards of our northern cousins. I often peruse with envy the web pages of Goose Bay Sawmill in New Hamps...

Juniper One Board Project Competition #5: Dez's design suggestion a Home Run!

1310 days ago by Lee Barker | 1 comment »

Dez suggested it and I trusted his eye and I am extremely pleased with the result. I introduced the lower curve just on the front and back, not the sides, figuring I could add the latter if I liked the former. None of the above. I liked the former—a lot—but it was clear that to do it on the sides was not the right thing. Your judgment may differ, and I’m open to comments, but I am taking it like this to the meeting in February. There, the critical eyes of the mem...

SawStop or not? #3: The cheapest health insurance you can buy?

48 days ago by Rob | 5 comments »

In a recent thread about tool recommendations for a new shop, I made a comment that a SawStop saw is the cheapest health insurance you can buy. Most people don’t plan on cutting off their fingers on their table saws, and many woodworkers are quick to point out that the likelihood of any individual woodworker being seriously injured by a table saw on any given day is pretty slim. Frankly, I agree with both those comments and don’t intend to argue against them, but I do want to cl...

Kitchens #3: Finishing and Rambling and Rambling

2694 days ago by dennis mitchell | 13 comments »

I’ve picked a very simple drawer style. Rabbited, glued and screwed, this is a very strong design. No fancy dovetails, but I’ll put these up against most any commercial drawer for durability.In the back of my mind I’ve been wondering if I will have to quit woodworking for a living. My back just will not let me stand on concrete with out sharp pain. I’m fine lifting and moving cabinets, but 1/2 hour spraying and I’m about in tears. This last year has seen a major ...
