Hi Lumberjocks, Well, it’s about that time – Round 3 will be starting very soon! I’m getting the list together and trying to verify some info. We’ve got a BIG group this time so we’ll need everyone’s help to make sure this goes well and as quickly as possible. As of right now I’ve got 19 confirmed for Round 3. Even if we hold the box 2 days and it takes 3 to ship it we’re looking at a minimum of a couple of months to get this completed. ...
Many of you probably cut dovetails with power tools & jigs —and so do I. But for some projects, I really prefer cutting them by hand and I never tire of learning how to do it better. That’s what took me on one of my recent video “treks” (journeys), where I filmed the segment I’ve posted here — this time to the shop of master cabinetmaker Craig Vandall Stevens. In this two-part series, Craig (who studied under James Krenov) uses only a saw, chisel, and several sh...
I’m building a beside table / nightstand for my son. I found a set of plans I liked on the net, purchased from PlansNow originally published in Workbench Magazine. Even though I have the plans I’m still drawing it up in sketchup. I like to dry run in sketchup. I find it really makes my shop time go faster and I create fewer errors if I’ve walked through the entire cutting and assembly sequence in sketchup before committing. If I start with a square block in sk...
In response to Woodworkinaspirations’ forum entry about making miter corners – I thought I’d take a stab at explaining how I make my corners. http://lumberjocks.com/topics/4967 The caveat on this is that my saw blade really, really needs cleaned and sharpened and my sled needs a new fence—- all this to admit that I have some tear out on the corners. But with that said, this should help aspirations to see ONE method to do box corners. So for me I start by cuting ...
Halloween Challenge: LumberJocks | HomeRefurbers | GardenTenders That’s right. You’ve been challenged!. You have until the end of the month to build a Halloween decoration for outdoors and enter it in our very first Halloween LumberJocks Challenge. What’s the size? That’s up to you. What’s it made of? Wood, of course (and, yes, you can add non-wood objects to it as needed). We have all seen those cemeteries and skeletons in people’s yards, well we ar...
I finally started working on my table the other night. Here is what I did so far… (By the way, here is the sketchup design just to remind you…) I’m actually not sure if I will make the jewelry compartment or not. I will have to see how it goes. I do about half my design on paper/computer and the other half on the fly. Here’s the pile after I cross cut some of my pieces to rough length (still designing on the fly a little until I get a sense of my proportions). Birdseye Map...
I know it’s not major wood working but what the heck, there are power tools and wood involved. I started out a couple of weeks ago to make some sort of kitty condo for my daughters to take to their moms house. I searched the internet for designs and finally settled on the one below. Then I started looking for some carpet, so I checked a couple of different places close to my work and for $10 I filled my trunk and back seat with all different colored carpet samples from Levi’s 4...
I decided to build a music stand. My daughter has started violin and I need to start practicing my guitar again. I have some cherry that was thrown out from a cabinet shop. I researched all the ones I could find here on LJ, and saw many wonderful examples. I decided I wanted a flat back so I could write on the music, if needed.My glue up skills leave much to be desired, more patience and preparation is needed. Thanks to all you who have now got me hooked on hand tools, I decided to smooth it ...
