I had a table top to glue up this weekend and was looking to build a jig to get better results adding biscuits to align the boards during glue up. I made a mistake on my last set of glue-ups and thought the boards were flush, but when I pulled them out of the clamps they were not even and required a lot of work to flatten. I don’t like extra work and would rather use some common sense. There are a number of jigs on this site and in the trade mags that show how to fix the base of a ...
http://www.adamswoodcreation.comAdams wood creation has gone public. If you were wondering i haven’t been on Lumberjocks for a long time now because i have been working on my website.

Obviously i know because were all woodworkers probab...
I have far too many DVDs and not enough places to put them so I decided to build a DVD cabinet. My design is based on a desire to make a large dovetailed cabinet and the fact that I have a bunch of left over wenge, padauk and a 1/2 sheet of bird’s eye maple plywood. I am not a sophisticated draftsman and use Microsoft PowerPoint to get the basic proportions right. In my first session: 1. Mocked up drawer using shop scraps2. Glued up panels3. Flattened one side using plane...
Consideration #2 If you have fruit tree burls or burls like madrone there are two ways you can semi-stabilize the burl.1. Pressure cook the block:a. I have a friend in New York who gets 12×12 x 6 blocks of Madrone and when he gets them the first thing he does is throws them in the pressure cooker for one hour.b. Let the water cool down until you can comfortably take the blocks out with your hands. Then re-wax them until ready to turn the bloc...
Hey everyone, I have just redesigned Oregonburls.com would like to offer an artist page. I know that it is expensive to get your art into galleries that charge up to 40% of the sales price and ebay up to 25%+. Oregonburls.com is an advertised site. This page (Artist Corner) would allow you to sell your wood creations with just a flat fee of 10% of the sale price.You would keep your item and when it sells I print the shipping label and email it to you along with sending you a check or pa...
Where are we? Oh, yeah. There’s a top skirt (not glued): And the frame part of the frame and panel: With the idea (stupid, perhaps) to use the old, original bottom boards for the panel. Jointed, with biscuits to glue, and work can go on. A problem becomes apparent when clean-up begins. A crack (or craic), that is more like a split, but not good in either sense. With the intervention of my LJ pals, I chose the right path and split the board, then glued up the ...
You are the best!!! I asked yesterday if you would go and check out my newly designed website and over 200 of you answered the call. So with that I say a big thank you! I will be adding burls daily for the next week or so, so please keep checking back. Today I will be listing some beautiful fiddle back walnut lumber and a large quilted Maple billet. As soon as I figure out a coupon code I will extend 10% off of your whole order exclusive to LJs. Another way you can help is when yo...
