Vintage Tools #1: For The Love of Tools!

03-08-2013 12:53 AM by dj1096 | 2 comments »

My love of wood I owe to my Great Uncle Albert. I have a picture when I am about 4 helping him in his shop. He loved wood but was not a very “fine” carpenter. For him you could never build it to sturdy with more wood and of course this was reinforced by more screws. I loved what he exposed me to but decided I wanted to become the best carpenter I could be and that would mean finding a teacher to help me reach that goal. I met a luthier when I was about 12 and was all to happy t...

Weekly Shop Updates #6: July 12, 2015

07-13-2015 08:13 PM by Matthew Morris | 2 comments »

View on YouTube This week I’ve been very productive. I finished installing the sterling silver in the ebony bars. After that I prepared the surfaces of my parts and rounded over the edges of the rails and mortises. Finally, I cut the housed mortises for the rails and stretchers. I also show you my new Lie-Nielsen Number 2 Bench Plane and talk about why I bought it and show you how it preforms.

Craftsman Style Kitchen Cabinets #1: The Leap

07-03-2012 11:04 PM by Douglas | 2 comments »

First, I have to apologize for this multi-part series not being posted as I went along. I am starting posting this series now that I am 97% done with the whole thing. As a two year long lurker on LJs, I know that if I’d been posting these as I went along, I would have had lots of helpful, timely feedback al the way. I probably would have avoided some mistakes and been more efficient as well. But I didn’t. So why am I posting now? I’m doing so as way to give back to this comm...

Carving Green Wood #1: How much will green carving wood move?

08-08-2013 05:13 PM by Tom Pritchard | 2 comments »

I have been carving for sometime and lately I have been carving some walking sticks. The material I use is fallen sticks found in the forest. The stick is still green, but I still carve. A friend of mine asked me by using a green wood, would the wood warp and crack? I said, well I’m not sure. To me it’s ok if it warps some because it’s only stick. The twisting and warping may improve the looks. Can anyone else share there thoughts about carving green wood and what you might ...

An Old Project, No Longer With Me

01-27-2011 05:43 AM by WhiskeyWaters | 2 comments »

My Mother’s frame & picture present from me and my family – this is about the most well put together wood piece I’ve done. The second in a series, I plan on tweaking the design (oak, danish oil finish, curved verticals with flat horizontals) until I get it right. Then I’m filling the house with framed art and pretending I’m cultured and human. I have an interesting post on www.woodshopcowboy.com planned for this weekend – a question regarding q...

Wedding Clock #10: Like Frankenstein, It Stands Up

07-05-2011 01:17 AM by kenn | 2 comments »

I am up to the nerve wracking part of this build. I need to put some dados into the sides of the clock, but since both the sides and front/back are angled, the dados need to be angled. I’ve been thinking about how to do this since I started this project. Use a stack dado set and the table saw? Yeah, that would work, but I don’t think the cut will be as precise as I need it to be and the cut would register on the front edge of one side and the back edge of the other side. That...

10-29-2011 09:23 PM by jerrells | 2 comments »

Hello to all Arts and Crafts woodworkers. but aren’t we all. I wish to pose a question that has no real answer. I currently sell arts and crafts type woodworking via word-of-mouth, friend to friend, advertising by posting pictures on Lumberjocks and Facebook (many friends know about these sites), and in a consignment store (this being just a week old). Now I must clarify that the scrollsaw is my primary tool of use in this operation. My question is what sells well for you, Of course this t...
