This interview is from the September, 2010 issue of the Creative Hands Network News. Dick & Barb Cain have been members of LumberJocks.com since August, 2006. Thank you, Barb & Dick, for this wonderful interview! 1. How did you first get started working with wood?I guess I got off to a real early start. Being depression times my Dad was fortunate enough to have a job, so he took on the task of building a new home in 1935. I was three years old at the time. I was always under hi...
It finally happened! Our three sites that we all like and enjoy – LumberJocks, GardenTenders and HomeRefurbers – got a brand new parent that will be taking care of their growth and unique friendly atmosphere. I’m proud to introduce you to my latest creation – CreativeHands Network: This new entity will ensure better integration of all three websites and will also represent them to any third parties. We already have a simple website to start with and new monthly ...
Here you can see what I’m thinking as I experiment with design and dimensions. I think the thin versions are too thin but also the thick versions are MUCH to thick. I didn’t see just how too thick they were until they were next to versions that were to thin. I am also on the fence about how I’m gong to mount the top. I have decided that I will use figure eight clips and screw the top to the base. I’m leaning toward the version where the top supports are crossing ...
Hey all, So I entered the Sawdust Chronicles 2010 Build Challenge. If you haven’t heard of them, they are a beginner woodworking Website that podcasts on subjects aimed at the beginning woodworker. Their site is http://thesawdustchronicles.com.

I entered a project in Ricks contest which was fun and personally challenging. I am going to take a shot at Ricks third contest ending this October. The entry deadline has not yet passed so anyone interested should check it out. I have a project idea that has been on my mind for a long time and with so little shop time I decided that this will be my 2010 build challenge entry. This is not the final sketchup that I’m going to build but it is very close. You can’t see very well in this dr...
I mean literally – I got the shaper to work :). I guess that would constitute as a tool gloat, although I’m not much of a gloater, I just like getting things done. I got this shaper off of CL a couple of weeks ago just because it was too good of a deal to pass up. I contacted the seller, and told them my budget which was lower than their posted price, and they agreed to my offer – I was psyched! I’ll probably set it up with some 3/4 bore cutters for cope-stile at some ...
This is a restoration project it was painted white new and I notice by looking under the chairs that it was hard maple painted at the factory white so I took it all apart I had just a big pill of wood , used some remover and a lot of sanding than I glued everything back together and varnish everything by hand , I am telling you it was a big job I would not do it again I would build one instead, I made the mistake of not taking a photo when it was all apart.It was easy to take apart as at the ...
Finished installing the top and it’s starting to look very attractive. Although I can’t seem to get one end of it to sit completely flat but other that everything seems alright. Tell me what you think…!
A few day ago I posted the child rocking chair I have been building for 30 years, and got alot of good coments, one said ( good luck selling that on a site for woodworkers ) You might forget the their is a link to put the post on your FACEBOOK. And thinking about some of the other coments I have desided to offer the pland for the child chair. It is a very well built rocker, and balanced, and with the curved seat I have sat babys that can’t walk yet and they don’t slide out of the...
