Hey everyone, Seems I only get once a year to sit and update my lumberjocks. Usually happens around the holidays. This year has been the best and the worst. It’s funny how life can change your priorities in an instant. My whole life now is my family. I have gotten full custody of my two boys CJ and Cody from Florida and I got married. My boys, 14 and 11 have needed alot of attention the last year and that really put a hault to the production in the shop. I made the mistake of t...
Hi I have a question for all the scroll sawers out there im looking for some patterns of wildlife with a animal inside an animal like a wolf in a wolf head a deer in a deer head a fish in a fish stuff like that i have done a search online but have not found much yet any help in pointing me in the right direction would greatly be appreciated Bill
Heres a series of photos where i used Paint to give the customer some ideas of what I could do for his front entry. I took a pic of his existing 8 panel applied mould door and super imposed on top of it from there. He seemed to like it and it was pretty quick to produce.
Ya I had to work today! Finely got a job and the contractor screws me on the schedule. But damn it was nice to play behind the saw. Grumbling done right has to start with the knowledge that I’ve got it made. One of the few independent Americans left. I get to do what my skills and talent direct me towards rather than deal with the legal/corporate/bureaucratic, anything for the mighty dollar, world of business the rest of America gets to suffer with. I sometimes grumble about how many pe...
Six pictures @ 1000 words each = 6000 words. I just need to attach the seats, plug the holes and a final sanding.
Months & months ago I set my sight on improving this mess: to this sketch-up vision: (Observing the back wall for cabinets etc) As a result of the economy, I was given a boatload of unpaid vacation days for the company to cut costs and so I have had from last Friday until Monday to start to tackle the shop upgrade. I had an ulterior motive for this – I got a Jet 1220 lathe for Christmas (early) and needed a place to put it and the shop renovation makes that possible. ...
(This is actually part 4, but I messed up setting its Series until after I had part 5 written, which got added as part 4…) So far so good. I picked up a new piece of curly maple (with plenty to spare!) and after cutting it down to roughly the size I’d need for the project and after removing the knots which spoiled the ends of the board (but which saved me 10% at Woodcraft!) I proceeded to joint an edge and cut it down to rough size for the box. Now I need to decide how to d...
Pillowed Ebony Plugs for Greene and Greene Projects Except for Darrel Peart’s book, it’s tough to find a source for “how to” on G n G projects. I don’t know how the Hall’s did it, But I thought I’d show my technique for making the pillowed ebony plugs common in Greene and Greene style furniture. I stole most of this stuff from fellow Lumberjocks, – I steal so much stuff that I can’t keep it all straight…just trying to pull it all together for this project and share it back – hopefully it w...
Here’s the kitecam footage with a little background music. If you want a funnier/naughtier version, browse to YouTube by clicking the link at the bottom right and look at our other videos (Warning: Explicit). Remember, I warned you. Little pitchers… We’re flying to the British Virgin Islands tonight! I’ll post some more video of exotic locales. Happy Thanksgiving to all of my fellow LJ’s and their families.
just wishing a happy thanksgiving to all the friends i have made on this fantastic site, enjoy to all,shinju
