When an old walnut tree right outside The Joinery’s building on Southeast Woodstock needed to come down, the master craftsmen at the nearly 30-year-old furniture-making business got to grinning. Founder Marc Gaudin got to thinking: Why don’t we harvest that tree and make something beautiful from it? And so they did, turning the tree into a bed and two tables. A lot of debris was coming off the tree, and a portion of it was dying, says shop foreman Gary Michael about the west...

DragonFly Harp #7: 1/20/2011 S-L-O-W Going

01-20-2011 11:36 PM by Donna Menke | 11 comments »

Days and days of mostly just staring at the dumb thing wondering why- oh why- things did not meet the way they should. Take a little off here- then a little off there- shoot!- think I took some off the wrong side. This was not the way to go.My micro-plane was going to be my salvation, but it may have created more problems than it fixed.Talk about creative clamping! Trying to get all the angles right and everything where it is supposed to be so that the screws in the base will end up in the ri...

Milling a black walnut tree! Advise wanted

01-20-2011 04:21 AM by Firewood20 | 8 comments »

I have recently come accross a black walnut tree that will be dropped in the next couple weeks. It is 19” diameter and 30ft tall. I have a big enough chainsaw and chainsaw mill jig attachment but this is the first time ever attempting milling “green” wood. Anyone have any thoughts or ideas of what to do with it after I have it cut down to rough cut lengths and thicknesses? Also what about drying it out if it needs it? or ? Will it affect any future projects ie: cabinetry, sh...

Kamagong (Ebony) jewelry box

01-18-2011 12:11 PM by Bill Davis | 11 comments »

Doing some resawing. The basic box. About a week ago my dentist, Bam, said he had a piece of old Kamagong for me. Well that made the pain in the dentist chair more tolerable (actually it was only a routine cleaning). It was a pretty scrungy looking board about 30” x 18” with nail holes (including a couple of nails) and a fair share of splits. I could see some nice grain buried in there though it would have to be brought out where it was more obvious. Also someone had ‘...

52 Weeks #2: Week 2- Some Utilitarian Items and Preperations for next week

01-17-2011 04:05 AM by clieb91 | 2 comments »

Well It is Sunday night again and my 2nd week has come to an end. This week my completed projects were actually done at work. I am working on organizing the office and cleaning up some clutter. I decided to remove some old tables from a small area next to our staff table (for lack of a better term) and install a small laptop desk so it can be closer to me and the filing cabinet. Here is what I came up with.. The desktop is mdf and the support system is 2×3 lumber. I of course used...

My Steampunk Telescope #4: Applying head knowledge.

01-17-2011 02:15 AM by TelescopeMaker | 5 comments »

Learning things about woodworking is like a lot of other things. You can get a lot of book knowledge and over intellectualize it, but in reality, there is no substitute for actually getting your hands dirty and doing it. I have been combing YouTube videos on everything from making guitars and violins looking for ways to do fancy inlays to how to do beautiful French polish. I read up on how to make non-splotchy stain finishes and how to smooth the wood with a scraper so that milling marks w...

Bandsaw Series #1: Backwards teeth on blade ?!?

01-16-2011 12:57 AM by Paul Pomerleau | 17 comments »

Well, I’m REALLY new at the woodworking game, and I went out and bought myself a lot of power tools during the Christmas Holidays. One of which is a 15” floor model bandsaw. Today I decided I am going to start a bandsaw box. So I glued a bunch of wood together and stated to cut through. Rememer, this is my very first time using a bandsaw. I noticed it wasn’t feeding as I figured that it should, suddenly smoke started coming out of the wood, I stopped everything, checked the ...
