Playroom #1: Its no Castle...

1941 days ago by clieb91 | 4 comments »

but I do believe my daughter will love it when she sees it for the first time tomorrow morning. I have been spending a lot of time recently in our basement recently. My wife and I decided instead of going and spending a ton of money on Christmas gifts we would finish our basement (I think the gifts would have cost less :) ) But anyway we now have a place for our daughter to play and we can move a lot of stuff out of our upstairs living room. We just finished setting the room up for her...

Ponderings #25: Another Year Older

1941 days ago by Tomcat1066 | 7 comments »

Almost a year ago, I came to LumberJocks for the first time. In that time, I’ve learned a bunch and met a lot of cool people. I’ve developed a great deal, despite my few projects. Since it’s Christmas Eve, I thought I’d take a moment and reflect on some things I’ve come to understand. 1. There’s More Than One Way To Skin A Cat I’ve heard this saying all my life, but no where is it truer than in woodworking. Think of something like a dado. ...

would this work?

1941 days ago by AaronK | 7 comments »

Been tossing around an idea for a nearly minimalist bookcase idea. i think it might work, but i wouldnt load it with anything too heavy on all but the bottom shelf (or the very center of the middle!). I think, also, that the corner joints of the top and middle shelves would be strongest as through dovetails. the two sets of parallel beam supports in the back would be notched/dadoed to accept the shelves, which might be good partially notched as well. one missing dimension in the figure is the...

Turning slippery slope #1: Starting to turn

1942 days ago by Betsy | 5 comments »

Yep – you read that right. I’ve been hesitant to turn anything because I’ve never really liked that “spinny” thing. But a friend recently has convinced me that turning would probably be a good thing for me to learn since small projects can be done quickly and are not physically demanding and I can learn it’s simply steps pretty quickly. I’ve already got the Jet mini lathe and most basic turning tools. I took my Christmas money today and signed up f...

My Rendition of T-Chisels Blanket Chest Chapter 2

1942 days ago by FlWoodRat | 5 comments »

Well, it’s Christmas Eve and Mother Nature provided us with some good weather. As such, that meant a day in the FlwoodRats Al Fresco Work Shop (AKA Driveway) working on some more stock for my rendition of T-Chisels Blanket Chest. This one will be a toybox/blanket chest for my Grand Daughter Yvette. Having my table saw on a mobile base really helps. Here are my Jointer and Planer Here is my stock for the raised panels. Today was spent rough milling them to 1-3/8” ...

Epoxy Floor Coverings

1942 days ago by hokieman | 7 comments »

I was reading in the Fine Woodworking Tools and Shops issue about an epoxy floor covering that you can roll onto a concrete floor. They recomend you sprinkle sand onto he first coat and then apply a second epoxy coat. The sand is supposed to make it slip resistant. I was curious if anybody has done this and if so does the sand make it very difficult to sweep up fine sawdust.
