Upcoming projects and designs. #9: Taunted by cut offs, and needing small parts bin dividers.

11-04-2010 05:15 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

I know the title doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. Welcome to my world! Well as followers of my blogs know, I am doing some heavy duty clean up, as well as organizing my shop. Well last night during what time I could eke out for shop time, I managed to un-bury a couple of 29.5×24” 3/4 sanded SYP ply cutoffs. This was the stuff I used for my tool stacker. Now given that the overall dimensions desired for my upcoming small parts / router accessories cabinet is 32” W x...

Owning your own business (post #8) Learning as you go.

11-04-2010 04:45 PM by nate22 | 3 comments »

Good morning Lumberjocks. Owning your own business can be stressful sometimes. Specially when you learn new ways or things you should be do in owning your own business. Which in the last two or three months I have learned somethings the hard way. Which I won’t mention those things because I felt dumb enough and I already did different things so those problems won’t happen again. But at least I found out how to do some of these things within the first year of owning my busines...

Scrolled Stamp Garden Signs

11-04-2010 04:09 PM by wdkits1 | 8 comments »

HI everyoneI have a client that recently opened a new store selling a variety of outdoor and garden goods and I was asked to make some little garden signs with different sayings on them. I’m using Cypress wood for the durability and each sign is to have the saying painted then finished with Spar-Varnish.The woodwork was no problem but how to go about painting the words was the million dollar challenge. She ordered 2 dozen of each sign. I tried stencils but could not get a good enough va...

What LJs Means To Me

11-04-2010 03:37 PM by David Craig | 27 comments »

I think, with all the hostility that has been in the air to take a moment, let the fan blow in a fresh breeze, and reflect on LumberJocks, why I came here, and what this site has done to accentuate my life. I have been here just 17 days short of a year and I can honestly say that no job, no school, no internet site has had as large an impact on my well being as this community has. I am extremely grateful for that. It is said that “Without a vision, the people perish.” That is w...

Technique Thursday #1: November 4, 2010

11-04-2010 02:32 PM by Chris Davis | 1 comment »

I thought I’d post something for each day of the week. Thursday’s will be Technique Thursday. I’ll tell about some sort of technique that I use in woodworking. Templates: Can’t stress how important templates are. I’ll build them from 1/2” material to form the shape of a cut out. I always use a mechanical means of making a straight cut or a perfect arc (fence, straight edge, compass). It will then be used to trace onto the good piece, rough cut with...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #154: Trees and Lighting

11-04-2010 01:15 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I think that I shall never see, a poem so lovely as a tree. – Joyce Kilmer Well, my trees may be poetry but they came out nice. I designed four different trees for the pond, in addition to the large tree that will be the center attraction. I am only going to include one in each set, but I will offer additional trees and lamp posts if people want more. Although the trees are relatively easy to paint, they are probably the most time consuming to cut. As I showed in a previous pos...
