Jewellery Box with Inlay

06-22-2010 04:41 PM by Flemming | 5 comments »

My sister always accuses me of trying to incorporate too many styles into my projects… maybe she’s right. The design is basically finished, and I say basically because there’s always tweaks and adjustments to be made along the way. I will get a chance to start the project this weekend and just to tell you a little bit about it… I want the finish to have a high gloss, clear coat, and I want to inlay it with a few cherry blossoms on the top lid. I don’t think I&...

So how many LJ's are coming to Frank Klausz's this weekend?

06-22-2010 02:25 PM by acanthuscarver | 8 comments »

This weekend, June 25 and 26, Lie-Nielsen is having their final hand tool event for the season at the shop of the legendary Frank Klausz. I’ll be there demonstrating some carving techniques and I’m wondering if any of my fellow Lumberjocks will be there as well? Here's a link to LN’s webpage about the event. I hope to see lots of LJ’s there.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #19: It Isn't Finished Until It's "Finished"

06-22-2010 12:53 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Did you ever see some really beautiful woodworking done only to notice that it wasn’t really ‘finished’? I have been doing woodworking and scroll sawing for a long time and I must admit that finishing is one of my shortcomings. I have been to many shows, too where people have on display the most beautiful, intricate fretwork that must have taken them days to cut, only to have little or no finish on them – or worse yet – a poorly sprayed on finish which has drip...

Tree carvings #1: Carvings in live trees

06-22-2010 09:34 AM by mikethetermite | 6 comments »

While in Juneau Alaska on Mt. Roberts we were shown these tree carvings. They are carved in to live trees. One is a Raven and, the other is an Eagle.The Tree Carvings are known as culturally modified trees. It is an ancient custom of the Tlingit People. One of the purposes of the trail markers was for identifying different clans’ rights to use a certain trade route. Always placed on spruce trees, each carving is made without endangering the tree, which creates a protec...

Raised Garden Fencing #4: 10 Footers Stained

06-22-2010 07:44 AM by BlankMan | 3 comments »

Well I finally made some progress on this. I got side tracked with my 80 gallon rocks that arrived and then installed a rain gutter on my neighbors garage so that I can collect the water. So I have one installed and with the rain we’ve been getting it’s full and really haven’t had to use it, well, because of the rain we’ve been getting… Made the stand it sits on and the diverter on the downspout to divert the water to it only until it is filled then it goes down ...

YSMBF (Yet Some More Bird Feeders)

06-22-2010 07:18 AM by BlankMan | 9 comments »

I’ve been wanting to get some new, bigger, better bird feeders but I couldn’t find any I liked. When I say “liked” I mean not small, not cheaply made, and don’t cost an arm and a leg. Twenty, thirty bucks or more for some cheap a** plastic or metal or wood poorly constructed piece of junk? No thanks. So I decided to build my own. Well I always have built my own but I was looking to get off easy and not have to take the time to build them. I thought, that if I ...

Gladiator, The Wheat Harvest 2010

06-22-2010 06:02 AM by revieck | 10 comments »

A short video of one of the reasons I can’t spend the time on LJ that I would like to! The wheat was short this year because of a wet and cool spring,yields were nothing to wright home about, test weights were ok.After the wheat was cut,I plant a crop of soybeans in the wheat subble(notill).I can get two crops off those acres. Now, to tie this to woodworking… straw is used in the making of MDF. (Man, that was a longway to go for that piece of information!)

Extremely Average #171: Building Two Boxes

06-22-2010 05:12 AM by Ecocandle | 0 comments »

Hello Lumberjocks, I decided to make two tiny boxes, instead of one, mostly because after I cut the first strip of wood, it turned out so nice. I love the jig I built for ripping with my circular saw. The walnut is from the practice piece, which I was using to build my hand planing skills. Once I got it flat, it just seemed like I should turn it into something, so I decided on boxes. I included a picture to show how much I had shaved off while practicing. Woodworking is fun! http:/...
