dust stuff #8: check this one out

820 days ago by JoeyG | 17 comments »

As I sit here and wait for my walnut burl to arrive from UPS. ( My first internet order of lumber, I am a bit nervous.) I thought I would share a quick picture of my new box. I normally don’t share my projects when they are incomplete unless I am doing a blog or need a little advice on how to finish up a design. This time it is simply because I am so excited about it. This is my largest box to date. There is ruler in the picture to show scale. It is sized using the golden rectan...

desktop Humidor - finished

1461 days ago by Rick | 10 comments »

I’m making a small desktop humidor for my cigars. I don’t smoke often at all, but being a woodworker it was hard to resist making one.The purpose of a humidor is to keep cigars at the proper humidity (65-70%) and temperature (70deg). So I decided to make two at once. One for a friend and one for myself. Both cases are walnut. One has a cocobolo lid and the other a birdseye maple lid. Both will feature Brusso hinges. CONSTRUCTION:Dovetail joints for the sides. Lid and b...

Building an Acoustic Guitar #1: Building an Acoustic Guitar

898 days ago by Patrick Jaromin | 9 comments »

I’ve been rather busy with life the last couple years, but I’m finally back in the shop and up to no good again! Here’s what I’m up to for anyone who’s interested… A few years back I was conversing with a co-worker and fellow guitar player. Aware I was an amateur woodworker, he suggested I build a guitar. “Luthiery requires special tools and skills…training. Naw, I couldn’t do that,” I said. Google search. Fast forward to la...

Part 2 - The Bed is Finished #2: Pics of the Completed Project

1575 days ago by davidroberts | 7 comments »

Last night I started this blog. You can see Part 1 here: http://lumberjocks.com/davidroberts/blog/14843 I started with the footboard and almost screwed it up. I thought dousing it with stripper could melt the glue. I had been told that professional refinishers will sometimes not dip old pieces in fear the piece will fall apart. So I scrubbed with denatured alcohol and scraped and sanded for days. Then I got brave, bought a gallon of STRYPEEZE paint and varnish (and shellac) r...

Wedding Clock #2: Wedding Clock, The Start & Story

1187 days ago by kenn | 6 comments »

Sorry Lumberjocks, this was intended to be part one. I’ve got it straight from here on. My eldest daughter is getting married! They got engaged Summer, 2010 and the wedding is planned for Sept. 17, 2011. I told them I’d like to make them something special as a wedding from my wife and me. This is what we all agreed would be a great gift. Never mind that I haven’t done anything in Arts & Crafts Style and that this is my reference, Bruce Johnson’s book on The ...

Wedding Clock #11: Tick-tock, Ding-dong

1091 days ago by kenn | 6 comments »

I have officially made a clock! It ticks, it tocks, it dings and dongs. I can hear the chimes ringing as I write this update for you. Here’s what I’ve done to be able to call this an actual clock. I’ve added a support to the dado I cut in the sides. This one is for the dial door. You can see the dado for the mechanism support behind it. Here’s a head on shot of the mechanism support too. That all looked fine but I thought that adding a cross piece at the top ...

Frame / Panel Keepsake Box - Construction

2280 days ago by Woodhacker | 5 comments »

On the suggestion of a couple comments from juniorjock and dantheboxmaker, I decided to try my first blog…anywhere…ever. I don’t really know what I’m doing, so I hope this turns out. Thanks to all who made the kind comments to my posting of this project. These are some of the steps I went through to make the “Frame / Panel Keepsake Box” at http://lumberjocks.com/projects/7096. Frame/Panels:This box consists of five Frame/Panels (FP) – the top, and the four sides making the carcass....

Puppet Theater #3: Building the "Wings"

1318 days ago by Patrick Jaromin | 5 comments »

Now We’re Getting Somewhere The front came out so nice, I’ve updated the design to include frame-and-panel side wings instead of plain edge-banded cherry ply as I had originally envisioned. It’s been a busy couple of weeks and there hasn’t been much shop time available, but I’ve scraped together enough hours — usually after bedtime — to finally cut, shape, and assemble the side panels (the theater’s “wings”) and prop the whole thing up. Now w...

Puppet Theater #2: Constructing the Frame and Panels

1331 days ago by Patrick Jaromin | 4 comments »

Birdseye Maple on Cherry The design for the top panel calls for birdseye maple. It seemed a shame to use my only piece of birdseye maple up on just one project. I decided to resaw the board. A few passes through my old Grizzly G1066 sander later and I had a beautiful 3/32” sheet of birdseye maple veneer. Because this is going to be used for a raised panel, I had to decide on the substrate. One technique I’d seen and had always wanted to try was using a different species substra...
