Japanese Tool Box #6: The Top

04-12-2015 05:35 AM by ruddhess | 0 comments »

Getting the ends put on the top now. Both end top pieces are glued and screwed on. This piece is 3-1/2” wide. And this piece is 3” wide. A view inside with the end piece on top. These dowels are definitely too soft. Next time hardwood or poplar dowels. Or maybe square nails. Flush cut and sanded. One end done. OK, I’m sold. This is the best saw blade I’ve ever owned. Smoothest cut ever! Getting ready do glue up an extra board to make ...

A secret dovetail?

04-04-2014 12:08 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

been trying my hand at a few of those “Full Blind Dovetails” aka miter, or secret dovetails. From the outside, they look like a regular mitered joint. But, open the joint up, and a few dovetails appear. Anyway, did a little research, watch a bit of Roy Underhill, and made a sketch or two. Down in the Dungeon Shop, I had a few cut-offs of walnut 1×4s. Not very long ones, but something to putter around on. A bit of plane work to get them all about the same w...

Dowel #1: Dowel Joinery

02-16-2015 07:10 PM by Desert_Woodworker | 0 comments »

Dowelmax is a 5 star toolMy journey to building (making a joint that will last!) led me to the Festool Domino, but then I came across the joint of “dowels”. HmmmmI watched the videos on Very well presented by the owner and creator. Here is what sold me: Money back guarantee, the test results comparing dowels to tennon, biscuits … Ease of use: You will get a paper instruction booklet and video. It will explain/show to you many and I mean many types of situations of dowel...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1367: Travelling Down the Crackled Highway - A Learning Curve

07-24-2014 12:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I always have a great feeling as I see the Purolator man driving away after a pickup. Usually it means that I just completed a project and it is on its way to the publisher.  That's always a feeling of relief for me, as more times than not I am coming from dealing with the nerves that accompany submitting to the magazines. Yesterday was no exception.While I still have some writing to do on the ornaments that I showed yesterday, I wanted to take a day that was a bit 'unstructured&...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1183: "Snowman Collector"

12-05-2013 12:37 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

This past summer I had the privilege of joining an incredibly talented and inspiring painter named Terrye French in her group she formed called “Painting With Friends.” When painting for the group, we are given rough line drawings or sketches that Terrye drew up and we are then invited to take the idea and run with it. We can develop it in any way we wish, and are encouraged to use our imagination and incorporate our own ‘style’ into it. Once we paint it and make ...

My life in wood #1: Year 1

03-13-2009 07:04 AM by DavidH | 4 comments »

Well, my one year anniversary with lumberjocks went by a few weeks ago and I realized that one year or so ago was also the first time I decided to get into woodworking. I thought this would be a good time to start a blog that I can update once a year, and even if no one else reads it, it will be something I can sit down and look at each year to see just how much I have grown as a woodworker. This year has really flown by, My woodworking this year has been dedicated to two main items1) Le...

A journey into the workshop. #55: Cleaning therapy...

05-06-2010 05:06 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

I’ve been busy after work every day this week with projects that SWMBO has deemed I will be doing… We bought a queen memory foam mattress set for the guest bedroom, and I got to pick it up and move it in. Now this bed is a very simple bed, just a roller frame, and mattress set. Anyway, so the bed gets put in, then we haul tail over to the linens shop to get a sheet set, and of course a bed skirt because the bare roller frame is fugly… Now the guest bedroom more or less...
