Sheet goods that just sit on the floor aren’t very mobile. When I can’t move stuff around my shop, I can’t maximize the space. So I need to organize those sheets properly and get them on wheels. I designed a new Sheet Goods Rack, but I’m not 100% satisified yet. I looked online but didn’t really find what I wanted, and I can’t do the pivoting rolling rack on hinges some of you have done. Check out my design over at my blog and let me know what you thi...

Hello All, It took all of yesterday and today, but my site has been taken down and put back up. So tonight’s blog is more of me cursing the hacker. I feel better now. The Curse – Extremely Average http://su.pr/1DUzOI Brian
I’m switching gears here and starting on a new project that just a couple days ago, wasn’t even on my radar. I mean I don’t have to even start this project right this second, but I can’t wait to get started on it. So, I decided I didn’t want to wait. I’m going to push this one to the front burner and get started on it. I’m going to be building a Rocking Unicorn. I build a lot of rocking toys. Most of what I build though, I build with no idea what is t...
I am laying out the legs now to accept the panels and railsThis is where the center stile will fit into the top and bottom rail.The tenons are only 1/4” and the panels will float in the rails and stiles. The strength that holds the sides together will be from the rails, the top and bottom shelf which will be 3/8” X 1 1/4” tenons pined from the legs.
I want share the proud moment I had this weekend. Our town had its annual Fair this weekend. One of the pavilions had a kids section. The local lumber yard supplied the material, pre-drilled nail holes and let the kids build their own tool box. Our little girl is 21 months old. She was thrilled. Can’t talk yet ,but was right in there helping ME !.This event took place yesterday and I am still BEAMING.
I need to make some money, so i am going through the pile of milled walnut to find goodies. I have so much trouble trying to build something traditional and desirable, but i am trying. I just never can true or square anything. I know it can be done with minimal tools; it must be impatience and lack of training. -or my round brain. -why can’t i just build a rectangular table?
I got this house from my grandparents and lived here for a year only fixing what broke. Let me tell you about myself and then the house and the progress on the house before I found Lumberjocks. I grew up with a dad that ranched and a grandfather that did a lot of different things with wood and even went through the cabinet building class with the Army back in the 1940’s his favorite thing to build was end of the day projects. For those who don’t know wath these are it is the pr...
Today it’s back to the glueup phase of my build. I’ve glued up half of the boards for each leg and done the short stretcher mortises for each. Now it’s time to glue the other half of the boards on, and voids in the glueup will create the mortises for the long stretchers. Here’s the first layer just after clamping, with a closeup: Then I glued an identical layer onto that one (both pieces), and voila, a mortise for the long stretcher. The last two boards clos...
