Sand Flee and other drum sander kits

2633 days ago by JonH | 5 comments »

Has anyone seen the sand flee? Its kind of a neat drum sander. They have a video on their website. http://www.rjrstudios.com/ I have also seen a very similar kit for sale that allows you to build your own drum sander that is identical to the sand flee. It is here. http://www.stockroomsupply.com/ Both sites have nice video, and they both seem to operate the same way with hook and loop paper. They work by using the paper rising up off the drum through centrifugal force. I like this ide...

DIY Lathe #1: Introduction

2246 days ago by Marcel T | 9 comments »

Hello fellow Lumber Jocks! I’m starting a little blog series on my work-in-progress DIY lathe. In short, I want to build a lathe to turn a few pens, without spending ~$60 some on specifically pen turning materials and ~$200 on a lathe. So, I want to try turning. I’ve always considered myself a handyman-esque person, and I had that urge to build! The tipping point was when I found a few blogs such as AfriGadget, StreetUse and Future Perfect. Their owners travel a lot, and they notice ingenu...

corian countertop #1: How to build a corian countertop with an apron

1940 days ago by Frankie Talarico Jr. | 1 comment »

There are a few corrections on the first page and can be seen here. This information is from an actual build of a corian countertop. This was a job for united technologies 6 restrooms with three undermount sinks each. Photos were taken along the way. I will be as clear as possible on all the steps needed to accomplish this. We are lucky enough to have a CNC for the cutouts. Laying them out on cad is extremely cost effective. If you dont have on you can use a mock-up piece you cut from p...

Oak Boat Bed #2: The Headboard

872 days ago by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

When coming up with a design for the boats headboard for the first time I wanted more like a bookcase headboard. Something more then just a flat headboard. What I did was take a simple bookcase headboard, one like I’d use on a captain’s bed, and tilt it back a little. To give it more of a nautical look, I cut portholes across the top and then some larger ones in the sides. Building Picture Raw Video of the build <other /> Video streaming by Ustream For more building...

Banquette Build....my first furniture attempt

613 days ago by Woodchuck4 | 4 comments »

Update (12-2-12) So i’ve made the leap and started the build. I decided to make the structure framing out of 3/4” domestic birch. I pocket hole and glued the end pieces and then used 3” screws and glue to attached the horizontal supports to the end pieces. after some test sits from multiple people of different weights, it seems to hold up very well and have no flex at all. On the plus side the framing seems to be surprisingly light as well. I now have ran into a si...

My Ultimate Workbench Build #5: Joint, plane and repeat....

1092 days ago by RS Woodworks | 4 comments »

Well, with the boards for the top cut to rough length and rough thickness, and the general layout for the top decided on, it’s time to start squaring up the lumber and getting ready to glue the top all together. I started out with jointing one face and one edge flat and square on the 6” general jointer. I set up a roller stand to the exact height on both the infeed and outfeed side. It’s time consuming, but squaring all the lumber is probably the single most important step i...

Train Bed #3: The build

1919 days ago by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

A lot got completed today. Actually I got most of it complete minus a few details. First I cut out the sides. I drew a life size version of it on cardboard on the last blog to give me a since of proportion. So today I just transferred the measurements. Instead of just cutting it out with a jig saw, I used a router to get clean and straight lines. I used the jig saw and circular saw for the rough cuts and came back with square jigs, made especially for this project and straight edges. ...

Teaching the Building of a Powder Horn with Scrimshaw Engraving at the John Campbell Folk School

1164 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 4 comments »

Since posting my work on Lumberjocks, I have received a huge number of requests for help and advice on the building of powder horns and doing the scrimshaw artwork to decorate the horn. And, honestly, I can’t really help everyone, as I have to work in the shop myself, so I have accepted an invitation to teach a Powder Horn Building and Scrimshaw Decoration Class at the John Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC. The date will be mid-July in 2012, and it is planned for a five day cla...
