Reclaimed Glory #15: Reclaimed Mahogany & Finger Joints: A Welcome Distraction from Pressing Concerns

14 days ago by palaswood | 10 comments »

First of all. What the hell are people doing throwing away solid mahogany… That just irks me… THIS STUFF DOESN”T GROW ON TREES PEOPLE!... well, OK, OK… but you get my point. Second of all, what in the WORLD were they thinking PAINTING this mahogany an opaque BROWN!.... Sometimes there is simply no justice in this world. Not that I mind coming up on 30+ bf of some old genuine mahogany. Cause I’m all about it. In fact, I get pretty much all my wood from my li...

Project Musings and Unfortunate Interruptions

20 days ago by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

I got a start on a whirligig for the 2014 Whirligig Wars. After the proof of concept, I got a few of the parts cut out and then decided some of the parts need to be out of thinner wood. Then a friend of ours passed away. This friend was what I call our church widow. She has absolutely no family, but a prepaid arrangement to pay for the cremation. I decided I should use the walnut drawer fronts I found to make an appropriate box for her remains. Our pastor will be receiving the ashes thi...

Woodworking For Therapy #19: Back In The Starting Blocks

39 days ago by Steve Kreins | 6 comments »

I thought it was time for an update for my fellow LJs. I’m mostly recovered from my second chemo embolization May 22. It was faster than last time, however I’m now back on my oral chemo therapy. No rest for the wicked I guess. However, I am back to making saw dust! Praise the Lord! I want to thank ALL of you for a gift you may not know you gave me. Several weeks ago I received a package in the mail with a beautiful box and the following note from an anonymous source. 5/27/20...

The Great Box Sale Adventure #2: Day 2

56 days ago by maplerock | 11 comments »

Rested and refreshed the wife and I headed back to the Art and Antique sale with renewed vigor. One day of slow (actually nonexistent) sales wouldn’t deter us from putting a fine box in the hands of every American. When we pulled our trusty Ford F-150 into the venue there were plenty of parking spaces. Hmmm…. we arrived at the same time as yesterday and had to squeeze into a spot then. Is this an omen that the crowds on Saturday were much larger than we’d find today? ...

The Great Box Sale Adventure #1: The Great Box Sale Adventure... a Novellette Part One

58 days ago by maplerock | 13 comments »

I had some interest from fellow Lumberjocks to let them know how the sales were at the show this weekend. Here’s a lengthy recap. You may want to get some snacks now or visit the restroom before proceeding. Day one of art show box sales is in the books. Day two is tomorrow. Let’s start at the beginning. Boxguy came up with a bright idea months ago, that he and I team up and present our boxes to the world at a local art show. I agreed and the wheels were set in motion. ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1321: Art Play Date

61 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

You would think that the last thing that I want or need to do is to take on more projects.  Being a designer, my day to day existence is filled with projects and the process of creating things.  I work in many different medias ranging from wood to painting and now even to textiles and needlework. There are times when I feel a bit overwhelmed by all that I have on my plate. Why, on Earth would I choose to try to do even more?I believe the answer can be summed up in one word – c...

Just for Fun... #83: Where did all the Fun go?

71 days ago by littlecope | 15 comments »

With all the down time this winter, I began to second guess myself, wondering what exactly my “Goals” were (or are) playing around with this Woodworking stuff…When my shop was in a single bedroom in my old apartment I used to have a ball, finding and using old furniture wood, and developing work-arounds for my lack of the necessary machines and tools to do desired functions…At one point I recall thinking, if all else fails, that I would just make boxes, until I ran out...

Woodworking and Life #2: My urns

90 days ago by TheBrokeYoke | 0 comments »

I have made an urn for my own ashes. Actually, I have made several of them, but thankfully, they haven’t yet been used, and there are no ominous clouds on the horizon. The first couple of attempts resulted in beautiful boxes that would have done the job, but they didn’t seem right to me. They were made from fun wood; one from aromatic cedar and another from walnut; and I gave them a lot of thought and attention to detail. However, something wasn’t right about them. In...
