Mystery Woodcraft Tool

04-01-2012 11:52 PM by stavely | 5 comments »

Help…my curiosity is getting the best of me!!! Some years ago a friend of mine, unfortunately dying of brain cancer, gave me this tool from Woodcraft. My friend’s disease was so advanced however that he could not speak clearly or write and was unable to tell me the purpose for this tool, gig or gauge. This constructed wooden thing is 10” long, 1 ½” tall and 7/8” wide with a cam operating lever at each end. Operating the levers at the end adjust the thin slots that are cut into the...

10-13-2011 02:13 AM by twoblacklabs | 5 comments »

Emma (with safety glasses) REALLY wanted to help prime the new doors. It was interesting but fun. Only problem is we were out of daylight and we won’t be home together tomorrow. So we did the only logical / redneck thing. Headlights from the truck!

But my 4 year old says the big one, which is a wooden bench plane and I have no idea of the complete process on that one although I did read that you don̵...

Lolling Chair progress

11-26-2008 06:00 AM by matt garcia | 6 comments »

Well I thought I’d have this thing finished, ready for upholstery today, but man this thing has been a challenge!! Well at least I got all the parts built, and fitted, and finally glued. I’ve started sanding the left arm and got all the joints flush. Next will be the right arm, then the outer parts of the legs. Then once I finish that, I’ll go over it one more time with 220 grit, then apply a finish, then upholstery. Wish me luck on upholstery, I’ll need it!! Af...

04-01-2014 03:48 PM by Rick1953 | 3 comments »

A few days ago my oldest Granddaughter said she would like to have an American doll and a canopy bed. I noticed Kerux had built a few beds and wondered if anyone would have some basic plans? This will be my first venture into any true wood working and don’t want to disappoint the granddaughter.Thanks.

I put too thick a first layer of epoxy (5 minute) in a knothole where i want to epoxy in a beetle on a stick (on a walnut & crepe myrtle rustic table).-now what? it won’t set in the middle of the layer, and i wanted to drop it off in her yard to surprise her tomorrow!-I’m afraid to add more layers. -I poked at the bottom a little with a screw hoping to expose it to air.

I’m sure there are better ways to build this train but all I can say is this seems to be working so far. lol

We Crossed 200,000 Comments!

04-29-2008 06:31 PM by Martin Sojka | 18 comments »

This was veeeery fast – we were at 100,000 comments only 150 days ago and now we have crossed 200,000!

After doing quick calculations we’re averaging well over 50 posts per LumberJock (including projects, blog entries, forum topics, reviews) and this is something to be proud of. You will not find many community/forum sites with this kind of activity. Only those reviews...
