knot projects ;)

Marks smiley face discovery, and Karson’s Turtle reminded me I wanted to share these from around the house. — This is our “bear” in the upstairs bath. a warm smile everytime you go up to ‘sit for a spell.’ In the dining room I see a monkey (or close cousin), or perhaps something akin to the Orange Monster from the old Bugs Bunny cartoons. I think there is another one hiding in plain sight… but a bit too well for my memory. Here ...

My Sharpening Station Copyright 2-11-2007 Karson Morrison

02-11-2007 08:21 PM by Karson | 35 comments »

I’ve noticed some Blogs and questions about sharpening chisels and I thought I give you my experiences and what I’ve designed. I’m getting ready to teach a sharpening workshop for the Mason-Dixon Woodworkers club and I was working on my setup and techniques. I own the Tormek Sharpening System , the Makita Sharpening System . I’ve used The Scary Sharp System and I build a modified Scary Sharp setup using cast iron plates and silicon carbide granules on the coarser grits and diamond paste...

"A Woodworkers Paradise" --by RusticWoodArt

02-11-2007 03:15 PM by frank | 3 comments »

”A Woodworkers Paradise” ....out of the darkness of night i have come, to sit now in my silence before a bigger mind than i, as i watch with prognosticated seeing, the un-veiling of this new glorious dawn…. —-and yes with pointing branches all entwined, against this your night canvas all stretched tight, where pinpricks of starry luminance release these feelings of light, that bespeak to me of a world beyond…. —-what is your makeup oh starry night...

Cherry Blanket Chest and a woodworker's mistake . . .

02-11-2007 12:34 PM by David | 17 comments »

Fellow Lumberjocks –This is my first ever blog entry now that I finally got everything figured out. Thank you everyone for the kind advice – just what I expected from the Lumberjock community. I was only vaguely familiar with blogging until I joined LJ. I have really enjoyed exploring everyone’s projects, comments and blog entries. The amount of information I gather is incredible, I feel like I have my own personal group of instructors providing expert guidance that I can put to use in ...

Learning Opportunity #2: If In Doubt, Follow the Instructions

02-11-2007 07:53 AM by Don | 6 comments »

A few days ago I returned to a project, a box that I have promised to make for a friend. I posted that project here. This friend asked me to make it with a hinged lid with the hinges being constructed from wood, similar to this box. I didn’t expect the project would take long, particularly as I already had two pairs of hinges left from a batch I had previously made. The project proceeded well, and I am quite happy with the way it is turning out. I made the lid by cutting it free f...

This is to show Frank "My Turtle" Revised 2/11/2007

02-11-2007 12:02 AM by Karson | 10 comments »

Frank: since you seem to be the wood guru for seeing into the inner working of wood and the mind, I thought I’d show you “My Turtle”. I was at the sawmill and the owner was cleaning up prior to selling the mill and he told me to take “His Turtle”. I did, so It is now “My Turtle” The workbench he is sitting on is about 24” inches wide, he is about 12” high, 24” long. He spends the day sitting by the door to my workshop, welcomin...

What a day, what a day

02-10-2007 11:32 PM by MsDebbieP | 7 comments »

Rick and I have arrived back home, after a morning at the wood show. And I have to say that it was an interesting day. Besides the wood and the displays and the tool demonstrations, two things stood out that made this day very special for me. First of all, having been to about 4 woodshows now in the past year, I have noted that the demonstrations never show a rotory tool (ex. Dremel) in action. I have the tool and have the desire to do something with it and would like to see it in actio...

Crown Molding: Crafting Your Own Trim

02-10-2007 08:43 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 10 comments »

My wife is gone for a few hours this Saturday morning, and the kids are busy watching a video, so I will update you on what I am working on now. I’m right in the middle of a “fun” project. It is “fun” on many levels, mostly because I have had to stop and scratch my head a lot. For those of you with kids, or remember having kids, or know someone who has kids, Winnie the Pooh always says, “Think, think, think” while poking his temple when he is try...
