Where Dreams Are Made ....never having a thought to lay down and rest, i was culled from the era’s of past, into the days of what might be called future quest, and so from this forum i soon was caught out as blest….—by flp How one goes about ending a hard days work, is just as important as how one starts a day of hard work! I all-ways give thanks in the mornings for the opportunity to work….and, then when my day is done, I give thanks for the day. And did I al...
Lots of pictures, so I’ll keep the text to a minimum: I started by putting the center cabinet together. The holes are too small for a drill driver, so I had to get creative with installing the pocket screws. I went ahead and added the drawer slides before the top went on. A piece of 1/2” MDF makes a perfect spacer. Here’s the center cabinet with drawers sans top. I then moved on to the right side cabinet and started attaching the pieces. A qu...
Hey Guys- I’m finishing up a Hard Maple table I built and am looking for the right finish for it. Finishing was never my best talent, especially on the lighter woods like Maple. I’ve got a coat of sanding sealer on already, and am looking to put on two or three top coats that won’t yellow over time (I just hate the look of yellowed wood). What would you all recommend for a relatively clear, non-yellowing finish? I’ve got a bottle of Formby’s Tung Oil finish that ...
Hey my fellow LJ’s. The tree guy who cut my cedar down called and told me he just cut down a 100 year old Black Acacia. The zoo came and got all the leaves and he remembered I had asked if he would not cut good wood into fire wood until myself and other woodworkers had a chance to look at it. There are two logs apprximately 40’ in length and @20” in diameter (bigger in some smaller in others). There was a nice crotch but it looks to be mostly rotten. Is there anyone...
Wow. I am one lucky guy. My wife and LOML just returned from a trip to Maine. She was taking her aging father on a trip through his childhood home (he now lives in Arizona). They were driving around and all of a sudden she spotted a building with a Lie-Nielsen sign. Being the spouse of a Lumber Jock, she stopped and they went inside to take a look-see. It actually was THE factory. She was treated to a personal factory tour by the very friendly staff. They were so impressed with the wor...

Today was a good day I got some work done on my mom chest of drawers, I cut all the peices for the top and sides, I got the sides gule up. Now I got to work on the drawer runners and gule up the top. I cheated a little bit I used my benchtop table saw and my circular saw. the side panels needs some flatening with my hand planes.

This weekend I was at a flea market and a guy stopped by to look at my stuff and said his nephew has a furniture shop and keeps giving him scraps to burn. He said some of it was just too nice to burn so he kept it aside. I gave him a spoon for this: I see a lot of laminated cutting boards, spoons and other stuff in these boxes :).======================================================================Another guy purchased an oak salad set. He said he makes bowls and would like to offer salad...
