Cain Guitar #2: A live performance of "Sleepwalk"

12-05-2007 12:26 AM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 22 comments »

Hi!I have previously submitted a soundtrack of the Cain Guitar. The other day My Son brought over a DVD of a Graduation party. The father of the Graduate arranged to have music by a band made up of himself, playing the drums, & some other friends. They got together , & practiced a few times. It turned out really nice. My Granddaughter did the camera work on this, I think she did a fantastic job. I hope you all enjoy this.

Observations #2: Even the Bad is Good

12-04-2007 11:37 PM by Russel | 31 comments »

I cannot say enough good about LumberJocks, and apparently, I’m not alone. I periodically like to see who’s online and go wandering through their projects and blogs (is MsDebbie ever offline?). In my travels, I have read numerous entries about the value of LumberJocks. The testimonials to it’s unique ability to combine professional and amateur seem never ending. The enumeration of benefits received and friendships found goes on and on. Oddly enough, I seem to be mis...

Ever buy lumber without a specific project in mind?

12-04-2007 09:05 PM by speakerscott | 15 comments »

So I found a very nice piece of mahogany at the lumber yard yesterday….brought it home and promptly got the following questions from my wife. What’s that? What are you going to use it for? If you don’t know…can I say that I have been wanting a new desk and dining room table…it would make a good one don’t you think? So I went running back this morning to find the match to it…which I did…and I believe that I have a dining room table pr...

sawyer needed - mid atlantic

12-04-2007 07:29 PM by Chip | 9 comments »

I have a log I’d like boarded and need a sawyer with a portable mill that will make house calls. Unless I’m losing my mind (which of late could be the case), I seem to recall an article in one of the wood magazines this year or last that had an article about sawyering and the companies they used as examples were not to far from me (around philadelphia). Does anyone else recall this article and if so, could you let me know the name of the mag and the issue? Any help would be greatl...

The Craftsman's Path #19: Queen Anne Side Table - Turning and shaping the feet

12-04-2007 06:47 PM by Mark Mazzo | 3 comments »

After band sawing the legs to rough shape in my last post, the next steps in developing the legs were to turn and shape the feet and to smooth and mark them for final shaping. This was an interesting process. There’s a good description and lots of pictures in the latest post on my blog. Let me know what you think – thanks for reading!

Back in the Groove!

12-04-2007 04:16 PM by Huckleberry | 13 comments »

Ah Huck’s back! In the shop that is. Took the hand longer to heal that I had first hoped, but all is well now. It amazes me that when you loose the ability to do something that you really enjoy how great of a feeling it is to get back in saddle. So I am back on track with this futon that I am making and had plenty of time to make design changes and this thing is turning out a heck of a lot better than I thought. I hope to have some pictures soon on this. I hate to disappoint every...

"After-Effects of Snow...." --by RusticWoodArt

12-04-2007 01:40 PM by frank | 6 comments »

After-Effects of Snow…. ....what can I add that these picture do not show-tell-speak forth them-selves….? I knew this one was coming so I had already closed the place up here on the outside, in regards to waiting on an icy breath of winters best. One must understand that it’s not the snow I have a problem dealing with, but the time spent on cleaning up after all the flakes of snow have had their party. So after having spent the day yesterday staying ahead of the storm,...

From chess board to table

12-04-2007 10:46 AM by oscorner | 10 comments »

Hello everyone! A while back a great LumberJock wouldn’t take no for an answer and generously mailed me some veneer. After much reading, blogs on the LumberJock’s and his guidance I made this chess board with the lovely veneers. The question was… what will I do with it? After much consideration I decided to make a table upon which to attach it to. Unlike most of you, my plan was in my head. Kind of learn as you go type of venture. I started of wanting to try and...

Adirondack Chair build how to - Betsy's version #2: Adirondack chair - third day of build

12-04-2007 05:28 AM by Betsy | 6 comments »

Well today is a short evening in the shop. Just enough time to do the front legs and get the leg assembly glued up. First I thought I’d show you a small check on one end of a board. There are obvious reasons to avoid check, but I thought I’d show you that even someone with very little hand strength can break a board if they have a check they can cheat with. Ok – back to the legs. The front legs are 19 3/4” high5 3/8” across the top2 1/8” ac...
