New England is a corner of the United States rich with tradition. David Ellison, known on Etsy as lorimerantiques, and to many of his Providence, Rhode Island neighbors as The Lorimer Workshop, builds furniture steeped in such tradition. He is not only fascinated by the New England legacy, but also by how the simple styles of tables built by farmers have evolved in different regions. While his original enthusiasm for woodworking stemmed from restoring antique furniture as a hobby, David’...
Just got a call from a friend of a friend of a friend. He would like 6 bottle stoppers that he can present as gifts to some co-workers. I’m retired. I’m done with the pressure of deadlines and keeping the customer happy. Nonetheless, I can make bottle stoppers (actually they are pretty quick and easy) and I quoted him a relatively high price. He agreed and now I have a deadline and the fear that the customer may not be happy. My fears are probably unfounded. I ...
Just got my first Lumberjock apparel shipment today. I bought an LJ hat last week to wear to the Woodworking show on Sat. Will take a pic and post it later. Woo Hoo

—————————————— UPDATE 3-28-2012: MISSION CASKET BOOK & PLANS AVAILABLE:After Posting my Casket Stories and Photos on Lumberjocks, I have been overwhelmed by the response from readers. There is quite a long thread of folks wanting to build their own casket, or wanting to build one for a close friend or family member. There are many reasons a person would build their own casket, including saving money...
SteveMI made me a guinea pig for a project he made of a Longworth Chuck. Gladly I accepted. It was a beautiful model and worked great, one thing I improved on for my own turning was to make the bumpers longer because I usually turn bigger bowls. He had used rubber cane bumbers with an inner core of oak which worked very good, but my design served my needs better. In our communication he told me he is selling these and making a 16 inch larger model, mine is an 11 and 1/4 inch model. It really ...
Well, we are again, home in Jordan Valley. As they say the job at the Padlock didn’t work out. An understatement to say the least. It is good to be back in the house with all the memories and wood and leather. I’m on my way to the shop to see if I can make heads or tails of the mess. Since all the machinery is gone, I suppose I’m now a galoot for sure. I still have all my hand tools and hand power so I just need a work bench. On the brighter side, on Monday, a week ago, I...
Working on the corner desk today sanded sanded and sanded then assembled after triple checking everything. Got one side glued up and the other ready to go, I decided to spend the rest of the day working on my rocking chair.
It has been a while since my last post. Some good friends visiting from overseas decided to “put” a break on my Bed project. In the meantime, the upholsterer called to let me know the bed was ready for pick up. Finally, last weekend I had the time to finish the project. It came out really nice and my wife is extremely proud of her new bed. Mission accomplished! I will just post a sequence of pictures showing the assembly of the Bed. There is no much more to explain about the...
Today I did some shaping on the rear joints using the kerf marks I made at the top and bottom of the seat I cut then sanded a nice profile. Also cut some angles to allow the head rest to flow into the legs. You can’t tell but I worked for a few hours on them legs.
