Dang, it's been a year since I blogged here?

05-01-2014 12:00 AM by Dan Lyke | 3 comments »

So another Bodega Bay Wooden Boat Challenge has come and gone, and I was looking at my profile to dig up some links to send to some folks, and saw that my last entry here was announcing last year’s win. I’ve been trying to participate in the discussions here, but (and you can just scroll down for the pictures)... The main thing is that having a full-time job sucks up all the time. Well, okay, having a full-time job and spending several nights a week square dancing (our new hobb...

Visiting LumberJocks #1: LumberJock djg - David, Torbay, Newfoundland

07-08-2015 01:23 AM by HerbC | 4 comments »

I’m currently on vacation in Newfoundland, Canada. Today I had the pleasure to meet and visit with David (LumberJock djg) at his home and shop here in Torbay, Newfoundland. David is a great guy and a very talented woodworker. He has a well equipped and very well organized shop. I was very impressed with the effectiveness of his sawdust/dust control system. His shop was spotless and it was hard to believe he does any work in it but the significant quantity of finished projects which f...

Land of Nod #3: Boring!

01-17-2014 04:55 PM by byerbyer | 0 comments »

Ok, where were we…Headboard joinery is wrapped up at this point and it’s time for the sideboards (as I’m calling them.) The sideboards attached with some connector bolts and cross-dowels/barrels a la a bed bolt setup. I didn’t want to rely on a 1/4” bolt alone to hold the weight of the mattress, frame, and the little one so a added a stubby tenon to the lower rail to carry the load with the bed bolts holding the joint tight. I used the same router jig for the ...

The Phoenix Project #1: Initial Impressions

07-17-2013 08:09 AM by KomputerMan | 7 comments »

A month or so ago, my Dad told me he had a slab of wood for me. OK, I thought, he sounds pretty excited about it so I’ll take a quick look at it to figure out what all his excitement is about. Worst case I have experiment wood: best case I can make something cool from it. Little did I know the best case scenario was pretty short sighted. My Dad lives in Portland and I live in Boise. Dad rents a minivan and brings me this dingy, weather worn, cracked, burned, and roughly cut slab o...

Mother's Day Tree Project #1: The dogwood log

08-18-2013 06:45 PM by rfusca | 6 comments »

Many years ago, I gave my mother a dogwood sapling for Mother’s Day. It grew large (for a dogwood) and provided some nice shade in the backyard growing up. Unfortunately, a fungus killed it over the last year. My parents were lamenting the tree and present were gone. They had already paid to have the tree removed by the time I suggested that I could do something for them with the wood. Fortunately, there was still about 4 feet or so of the trunk leg. This is a piece we carted b...

Finding a Great Item at a Favorite Fleatique

02-24-2015 11:16 PM by John G. | 3 comments »

One of my favorite browsing places is the Eastbrook Flea market and Antique Mall. A couple of weeks ago we were perusing the basement. there is an interesting tool vendor that often has some great old things. I found this plane. I have a smooth plane, and have seen others, but this was interesting – and complete. So here is a picture: I proceeded to disassemble it to see the condition and figure out what to do next. Here is the before slide show at Photobucket:

Rocking Chair Build - Due Oct 5 #8: Coopering the Headrest

12-28-2015 04:08 AM by Marshall | 1 comment »

The plan for the headrest calls for a 29.5” radius. Hal likes to orient the grain vertically so as to flow with the rest of the chair – which I agree adds to the elegance of his design. To do this, I coopered the headrest using six billets, each 4” wide. The billets were cut from the same slab as the seat (see Part 1 and Part 2). I continued the use of the sapwood used in the seat into the headrest. Once the billets were laid out, I cut each edge at 4 degrees. ...
