The hikers search for birch

11-26-2012 10:20 PM by jjw5858 | 3 comments »

Our hike began with a sense of fun and small adventure through a parade of awaiting sticker bushes and many fallen trees laid out before us like a maze of dominoes in there felled awkward patterns. I felt so blessed to have my father leading the way down the slopes of leaves and enjoying his memories about the hillside with so many tales from his experienced 75 years. We were up for taking a chance at finding some birch wood for spoons and kuksa, not much of the fine tree stands in the cur...

So Lumber Jocks it is hey

01-11-2007 09:42 PM by Shawn | 11 comments »

My biggest regret…not taking highschool woodworking class seriously enough…my Jr High and Sr. High were both outfitted with GORGOUS tools, great wook selections, and amazing teachers who could have taught me so much…ode to the squandered time of my youth. A year and a half ago I bought a used table saw…it’s not very good…takes so long to set up square for a cut that I struggle with if I shoudn’t just buy a new one…then I remember I have a wife&...

JC4 Journal #7: I thought home ownership was going to be fun...

02-26-2014 09:45 PM by JCMeyersIV | 3 comments »

Hey folks! I’m back. It’s only been months, i know. Let’s just get this out of the way… I BOUGHT A HOUSE!!! Hold your applause please, I may be moving out in the next few months if i can’t jump start the business. I guess buying in the fall when business is dead was an awful idea. But in all seriousness, I’m quite excited still. I lived at home for the better part of 26 years. The freedom and privacy is amazing. And having room for all my hunting, hockey...

Ponderings #26: Do We Ever Have Enough Stuff?

12-26-2008 08:36 PM by Tomcat1066 | 4 comments »

A bookcase. Seems like such a simple project. I looked at the tools I had, or were going to get anyways, and I either had it or could get one inexpensively. So, I made out some rough plans in my head. I’ve had a ton of help with the actual design over on T-Chisel’s forum. The design discussion was mostly on specifics, nothing that required new tools (perhaps new router bits, but that’s a continuing thing for life I suspect). And yet, every time I turn around, I find mo...

Wood Thoughts #4: Dear Diary ... (A Day in the Life of a Hobby Woodworker)

04-04-2014 04:30 AM by Fr. Thomas Bailey, OSB | 0 comments »

Please Consider Checking Out My Website: Dear Diary, This morning I awoke to a beautiful Saturday morning with the birds chirping and the sun shining, and I was reinvigorated and ready to tackle a new woodworking project. I quickly dressed, had breakfast, and checked out the new woodworking videos on YouTube. I couldn’t believe my luck. All my favorite Youtubers had posted new videos!!! Though tempted, I was not to be deterred from my task – I will sta...

New beginnings

02-25-2010 05:03 PM by MakingScraps | 13 comments »

Hi fellow lumberjocks. I figured I would give a little background since I am new to the site. I have always enjoyed designing and building things that make my life easier/better/more fun. Years ago I tried my hand at woodworking, but, without any decent tools I was quickly disappointed when my project came out looking worse than the scraps I made it from. Fast forward to today and the woodworking bug has bitten me again. Fortunately I plan on doing it right this time. I have been setting u...

Built in E-center, Yala #3: It is finished!

12-03-2011 03:13 PM by topcat | 3 comments »

I haven’t done one of these in a while. The build was a bit excruciating. Took 6 days, about 10-12 hrs. per day. Started on the Thurs. before Thanksgiving. That was an easy day. I just ran around getting all of the materials together and did some initial layout work and rough cut the plywood sides. These were full height and were too awkward to move around, so I used a straight edge and my new PC 8902 router to get the edges of the plywood ready for the face frames. Once the first side ...

Drift Redwood Bench Build #4: Finishing but far from finished

02-12-2014 09:13 PM by scruboak51 | 1 comment »

I’ve decided to finish this in two stages. I still have to figure out the legs/support for the bench but felt there was value in getting a protective coat of finish on the piece. With the redwood being fairly soft, and this piece being so heavy I could already see imperfections being introduced just from moving this around during the sanding process. Also sand; sand everywhere. Given that this spent part of it’s life as driftwood, many of the nooks and crannies are filled wit...
