Blog Tags and Topic Tags are Here!

04-12-2007 01:04 PM by Martin Sojka | 17 comments »

Blog entries and forum topics are now taggable too. Tags are becoming more and more important as the content on the LumberJocks is growing exponentially. Essentially they are like descriptive keywords attached to each project, blog entry or forum topic. They help to make it easier for you to find the content you’re interested in. I’ve also redesigned the Tags page. Now it have three subpages – projects, blogs and forums. On each of them you can see the respective most pop...

Thorsen Table Challenge #3: Mortising the legs

04-12-2007 02:00 AM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 8 comments »

Today I cut the legs to length, & Cut the mortises for the aprons. I was setup my mortising attachment to my drill press. My Grizzley crossfeed vise was bolted to the table. I thought, why not use this when cutting the mortises. So I tried it out, & worked great. Once I got it all sqaured up, I drilled out all the mortises in no time at all. I tried making a short video. so I’ll try embed it to this Blog. I hope I can make it work. Here’s a photo of the complet...

Thorsen Side Table Challenge #1 #1: Metamorphosis to come.

04-11-2007 10:36 PM by Roger Strautman | 14 comments »

This past week I was able to get a good start on this wonderful challenge of creativity and woodworking skills. This has taken plenty of design, thought and time up to this point. I’m not very good at this design thing. The legs are walnut and the aprons and stretchers are made of butternut. All the joints are mortis and tenons. Take a good look at this now because in the next set of pictures there will be a metamorphosis in this table.

'This Old Crack House' #30: I bought a piece of Hell...on my way to heaven

04-11-2007 03:23 PM by Dusty | 15 comments »

The purchase agreement stated that we would take possession of the house at nine o’clock, Saturday morning, June the first. They had until twelve noon to vacate the property. Anything that was left after that time, we could dispose of at our will. It was 9:01 AM; everyone from across the street was sitting outside on the deck. I walked over to see what was going on. From what I could tell not a single load had been moved. I was right about that. I asked her brother what was go...

"Base Camp or Madness of Vista's" by RusticWoodArt

04-11-2007 02:22 PM by frank | 5 comments »

”Base Camp or Madness of Vista’s” ....and so much the more so, i am swirled into the inner arena of of this mad-capped vortex, where the color imaging escapades from all my kaleidoscopes of man made portals, are but the infused dilemma of one walking where those others choose to trod not…. —-and so here again i am found, as walking and talking amongst these trees of my forest, where the early morning dew sits as burnished droplets on the leaves of my wings,...

A slightly saner intro

04-11-2007 06:28 AM by photonic | 6 comments »

For those of you, my wife included, who found my first post a bit overwhelming, here is a slightly less, um… epic version. Okay honey, you can stop laughing! _ My name is Geoff Webb, and I am a galoot. For those of you aren’t familiar with the OldTools list a galoot is a woodworker who works with only hand powered tools. Since I look at woodworking as a way to spend time rather then make a paycheck, hand tools fit the bill perfectly. A few years ago my lovely wife bo...

Night Light #1: Sides

04-11-2007 06:03 AM by cheller | 2 comments »

I’m working on a night light for a friend’s baby, who is due in about a month. The design is one published in Woodsmith a number of years ago. I’ve made two of these before for my two youngest nephews. The first was made strictly to the plans. For the second I changed two of the light panel designs to personalize it for that little boy. This one will also have 2 custom light panels. I’m making this one out of walnut. I’ve got all the parts cut and have...

Wall Cabinet #3: Case Assembly

04-11-2007 05:46 AM by cheller | 5 comments »

Over the past several days, I completed the assembly of the case for the wall cabinet. Material is maple except for the panel in the back, and I made that so long ago that I don’t remember what kind of ply it is. The back sits in rabbets in the sides and is secured with screws. I had to make a visit to the big orange store because I didn’t have the size screws (#4). The back panel has mortise and tenons between the rails and stiles. The sides are attached to the top and ...

Finally traded one of my burnins

04-11-2007 05:16 AM by Jim Earl | 6 comments »

Wel I seen what and how I can keep going doing more pictures. Today I traded the fruit basket for a truck load of wood that I can keep burning on. A friend of mine came by today and wanted to see all these burnings that I have been doing and wanted to buy the fruit basket. Well he also had a load of wood that he would give me to burn and to cut up for more projects. I went over to his house and he begin to load up my truck and ended up loading it very close to the top of the bed. I do feel I...

'This Old Crack House' #29: The OTHER shoe drops...

04-11-2007 03:06 AM by Dusty | 16 comments »

Closing on the house couldn’t come soon enough. The closing date had been moved to the first of June because the county had become involved with the family and the troubled kids and insisted they remain in school until they were let out for the summer. The sheriff’s auction was also scheduled for June 8th. The house had to close before then or I would have to start all over and wait for the redemption period to end before I could make an offer on the house again. I couldn’t be...
