Turned Box with Feet

01-21-2014 01:28 AM by Glen Peterson | 1 comment »

I turned a lidded box recently and was asked to explain how the feet are made. I wrote a paragraph, actually more than once, but I thought it was difficult to understand. Since I had the day off and only 40 projects on the list, I decided to turn a box with feet and describe the process. I’m not going to describe the entire box making process, but I follow Richard Raffen’s method. I’m sure others have done feet like this before, but I’m not sure who. I started with...

So many pies; So few fingers (post continued)

08-21-2013 01:01 PM by JustaLilJoinery | 2 comments »

I was sitting eating dinner eagerly planning out the jigs that I’m going to make for the router, drill press, TS and BS now that I have all my major equipment in place. I was even excited that the knobs and bolts kit of almost 150pc that I was going to pick up was on a really nice sale. I finally started to feel like I could start making the things that I like and not just always mickying around As a miniaturist, I have set ups for lots of different hobbies/mediums including resin ...

Lumberjocks rock!

05-13-2010 10:13 PM by Div | 9 comments »

I am astounded, flabbergasted, amazed and completely impressed. I joined LJ’s only a few days ago and within hours my mailbox started overflowing with welcome notes. They still keep trickling in. This is representative of the kind of woodworker I know; a friendly passionate guy (or girl) who likes nothing more than to talk about wood and his craft, who is more than happy to share the knowledge he has. That is a real woodworker in my mind and a real woodworker is also a humble woodworker. Beca...

Thorsen Table contest #8: pile of small parts

05-27-2007 05:49 AM by scottb | 9 comments »

I should have made a paper template of the parts for this table (actual size). Until I finally cut everything down to size I didn't really see how small this table really was, and with the off cuts I have lying around (had I been more careful early on) I could have made a pair of tables! Lesson learned there. Oddly I did this with my first box in order to figure out my cut list (and how to best maximize a tiny piece of cherry I used for it. If only I remembered. Anyhow, I'm feeling ...

Finally Spindle Pictures

10-13-2009 01:11 AM by dustbunny | 11 comments »

I posted a blog about some chair spindles I turned for a friend. These were to replace the broken spindles on a chair he was working on. http://lumberjocks.com/dustbunny/blog/9114 Finally, he sent me pictures this morning. Apparently he has put the chair together, but plans on staining and finishing them sometime…..Even though they are not stained it is still nice to see that the work was used and actually doesn’t look too bad. Thanks for looking, Lisa

Saw Filing Epiphany

08-24-2013 02:20 PM by rivercitywoodworker | 1 comment »

Sharpening saws is a skill that has always eluded me. More often than not, I’d wind up with a saw out of joint with funny looking teeth that would either cut so slowly as to make a snail’s pace seem like Mach 5, or would jerk in the cut. Each time I had to sharpen my saws, especially the finer toothed ones, I would dangle my chicken bone necklace around the saw handle and offer a small sacrifice of sawdust, praying that this time it would work.It wasn’t for lack of informati...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #523: Another Opportunity

11-15-2011 03:00 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

It certainly has been a busy week. Everything seems like it is coming together and falling into place. Although I am cautious when using that phrase because it tends to make everything look as if it happened by chance. Those of you who run your own businesses know very well that what many times appears to be ‘luck’ is the result of many hours/days/months and sometimes years of planning. In any case, as crazy as it is, it is fun and enjoyable and very satisfying. I have writ...

In and out of the shop #1: Kane Carving

06-15-2009 03:20 AM by JTRid43 | 3 comments »

Hello all. I am back…. Well…. Sort of. Okay, here’s the story. I finally got the chance to get back into the shop and start some projects for the farmers market. I was finishing up some built in shelves for a customer when my back went out. OH YES! It went way out. 3 ruptured disk L-3 L-4 and L-5. Stenosis of the L-5 S-1 vertebra with the disk at that same spot blown out are compressing the nerves of my left leg. Sciatic nerve for those of you who may not know is the main ne...

Building boxes #2: Glueing the outside together

01-08-2014 03:54 PM by nate22 | 3 comments »

After getting the pieces cut for the box cut out I have got it glued together. It took me long enough to get it square before I could clamp it all together. Is there a good way to make a jig so I don’t have to take so long to play with it getting it squared.
