Charles Neil build along mahogany lowboy "series" #18: week

12-14-2010 04:18 AM by a1Jim | 21 comments »

Charles Neil mahogany lowboy build-along, #18On a planet far, far away, long, long ago this A-1 guy was building a lowboy. He was given the wood and blow-by-blow instruction how to build it and was reporting to the land of LJ about how it was going. Then this invader, called LIFE stopped the whole process and only after a long battle, did the A-1 guy get back to the castle to continue the lowboy adventure.Now that my sanity has (briefly) returned… LOL, I’ll get on with the show, since a numb...

Time lapse Woodworking #1: Attaching a coffee table storage shelf with dowels

12-14-2010 03:55 AM by Canadian Woodworks | 4 comments »

In this time lapse, i’m building a trestle coffee table from Walnut. At this point i’m attaching the underside storage to the top of the table. The underside of the top and entire storage shelf has been sanded up to 500 grit and buffed with a wool pad to burnish and clean out the pores in the wood. What a shine one can achieve from just bare wood, its amazing, silky smooth! First I measure and drill the holes for the 2’’ x 3/8’’ dowels that will attach...

The Slippery Slope #3: Pop's Toolbox

12-14-2010 02:30 AM by chrisstef | 3 comments »

I know that its been a while but ive been busy working aorund the house and working on a coffee table for my father for Christmas but here is the latest installment of “The Slippery Slope”. I started this blog with the anticipation of chronicalling my slide down the slope toward becoming a Galoot, or at least a wannabe Galoot, but it has taken kind of a funny turn. Yesterday my grandmother unfortunately passed away after 88 years on this Earth. She’s found her way upsta...

How to Make Perfect Miter Joints

12-13-2010 11:54 PM by Bob Simmons | 3 comments »

It could be said that miter joints are definitely one of the most common joints in woodworking or carpentry. This is a joint that we are taught early on in our apprenticeships because we will be cutting miters throughout our entire career. As an apprentice it sounds simple enough to just cut a left 45 and a right 45 and glue then together to form a 90. If it were so simple then why are there open miter joints? Let’s take a look at how we can make perfect miter joints. View the comple...

mini gloat

Did pretty well on Kijiji (a buy/sell web site) this week.First was a National 4 inch jointer/planer. In need of a little TLC and a motor (which I already have on hand) but it was only $20. Second was some sheets of 4 mm Baltic birch plywood, 60 by 30 inches, for $6 a sheet. Not a bad day.

Owning your own business (Post # 10) How I make my beds.

12-13-2010 08:49 PM by nate22 | 1 comment »

Cutting Out The Pieces.Good afternoon Lumberjocks. It has been awhile since my last blog. I have decide to share how I make my loft beds. I will share, and show you the first step in the process of making them. This is the first time I have decided to use hardwood to. I am making this loft bed out of soft maple. After using hardwood I don’t even what to use pine again. Hardwood is much easier to work with. But here is a few pictures of the cut out pieces. Most of the pieces in t...

The amazing talent

12-13-2010 06:42 PM by brolga | 5 comments »

I am new to posting on anything, let alone a community as large as this. I have been registered for several months and am amazed at the number of talented and creative people out there. I love the site and will figure how to post a picture of something I have done before too long. I am about to begin a rocking horse for my new grandson. It is a little crafty rather than artsy but well worth the effort…

The Old Made New #2: Updates on the workshop

12-13-2010 05:42 PM by Jurg | 0 comments »

Well, I’m very late in my posting the latest in the tools journey, but I did indeed move the last of the family tools into my shop. I ended up letting go of one or two, a metal working lathe in need of tlc and a user better suited to that craft, rather than me relegating it to small time woodwork, it is now being used by a father and son who do metalworking together, a fitting home. The proceeds went into buying a Rikon Mini vs lathe, which suites my needs perfectly. And sadly the bands...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #193: Getting "Unstuck" by Changing Gears

12-13-2010 01:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I really like when I get so involved in doing a project that I can’t wait to get up in the morning to get at it. Today was one of those days. After feeling kind of stuck for a while on what to do for someone special on my list, I finally got the idea on Saturday and since then it has grown like a well cared for seed and looks like it is going to be turning out to be a pretty cool project. I decided to paint a wooden sewing box for a friend of mine who loves to do counted cross stit...
