Proportional Dividers - Golden Section and Generalized #4: Proportional Divider - 3-Arm

11-22-2010 11:08 PM by Mark Whitsitt | 0 comments »

Ultimately, my goal with all this mathematics was to figure out how to design an accurate 3-arm proportional divider like the one posted by David. Please visit his blog post for more information and links. The first step was to understand the Golden Ratio (post 1), the second step was to figure out the geometry of a simple 4-arm divider (post 2 & 3), and the final step is to apply this theory to the 3-arm divider I want to make: I just rearranged the two isosceles triangles from...

Creative Woodworking #5: Tables

11-22-2010 10:37 PM by dakremer | 18 comments »

Here are some tables to get the creative juices flowing. The purpose of the blog is to get people to start thinking outside the box – and show the creative (non conventional) side of woodworking. Again, my style is a modern style – so most pics are of a more modern design. I tried to incorporate different design ideas, and a couple different types of tables. Enjoy. If you want to add any other pics down in the comments area – feel free. for those of you following the...

5,000 year old door : Exciting new findings

11-22-2010 09:54 PM by Roger Clark aka Rex | 16 comments »

Archeologists have uncovered more artifacts after excavating around the door and under the door. After carefully cleaning the front of the door a carved sign was found. The significance of these markings is not generally understood, but some believe it represents the number 6. More interesting items were found under the door, which would have been the inside. This could have been some sort of tool, or maybe a wedge to keep the door open in a required opening. Seeing how old this...

Owning your own business (Post #9) Moving along steadily.

11-22-2010 08:00 PM by nate22 | 2 comments »

Good afternoon lumberjocks. It’s been kind of slow for me the last couple of weeks. It also gave me a chance on making more designs for more furniture and house hold items. Which I am in the process of expanding my business so That will take a good 6 months to get everything in order for that. Even though I sold another bunk bed this week. Which helps now I can pay my lumber bill off. So even though it’s been a slow couple of weeks, at the sametime it has been productive to...

Gift from Big Footed Dane

11-22-2010 06:51 PM by swirt | 25 comments »

The post office delivered a wonderful gift today. It had traveled roughly 4000 miles or 7000KM to get here from what looks to be a wonderful island in Denmark. My LumberFriend DennisGrosen had sent me a package. The box contained an incredibly well wrapped package, a very thoughtfully written and heart warming Christmas card from Dennis and his family, and a load of packing puffs that my son had a good time with.Thankfully they kept him busy, which gave me time unwrap all the protec...

11-22-2010 04:21 PM by depictureboy | 0 comments »

Well I finally pulled the trigger. I noticed that I was falling into the rut that I do with my code, always waiting to release until its just right…well it never gets there, you have to pull the trigger not look back and fix the little things you miss as you move forward…. So anyway with the help of a friend I was able to get the tall cabinets upstairs. I have the back on one unit and it survived the move, my wife wanted me to get the other one moved up too while I had help...
