Garden Planter Box

05-02-2018 11:02 PM by wrenchhead | 3 comments »

I made this planter box for my wife’s front porch vegetable garden. It was pretty simple to make using pocket holes and gluing in some reinforcement boards to hopefully add some extra support. I hope you like the video. Thanks for watching! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lw5L1LjPQlc

Shop Notes #16: Milling Around

04-07-2018 04:59 PM by Steve | 4 comments »

For Christmas last year, I received an Alaskan Lumber Mill from my wife. I think she gave it to me as a form of self-defense; over the past couple of years, the neighbors have identified me as they guy to call when a tree falls and they need help hauling it away. I’ve accumulated a stash of California live oak, avocado and juniper (cedar). There are not a lot of lumber mills in my area, and those we have charge more to cut logs into lumber than the resulting boards are worth, especia...

Shop Notes #9: Back to Work, Finally

02-22-2018 04:35 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

My personal projects are winding down, and I’m (almost) through the maintenance process for my shop tools. So, for the first time in a while, I was able to get down to work. Earlier this week I was finishing up the last few bits of trim for my wainscoting when my three year old DeWalt miter saw began to screech. After just replacing the lathe, I had a sinking feeling that a new saw was also in my future. However, with some help from forum members and a morning of exploratory surgery,...

Dust Collector Shed #3: Siding done

02-09-2018 03:05 PM by FrogHouse | 0 comments »

Hey Lumberjocks. The new semester is in session and I am knee deep in assignments. (Just an FYI I am a 50 year-old student, working on getting that degree I should have gotten 30 years ago.) The good news is that I was able to finish the siding on the shed before the stuff got too deep in school. I have a couple of minutes and thought I’d share the progress. When last I posted, I completed the siding for the door. I used some cedar trim I had hanging around from an earlier project. T...

Dust Collector Shed #2: We have a door!

01-17-2018 02:25 PM by FrogHouse | 3 comments »

Wow. People actually read my first blog post. Not sure I was expecting that. Thanks to all that read it and a special thanks for those that commented. Before we continue, here are a few photos of it in progress. When we last left the shed (and when I say ‘we’ I mean ‘me’), the shingles were up the OSB in place and three walls were wrapped in Tyvek. The next thing needed was a door! I purposely covered the entrance when I put up the OSB. I built the door structure and installed it on th...

Classic Wooden Yacht Tender #1: Step 1 - To loft, or not to loft

01-14-2018 12:43 PM by SemperSailor | 7 comments »

Hello Fellow Lumberjocks, I’ve been bitten by the bug. I am obsessed with learning how to build wooden boats. I have no wood-working experience (and very few tools), and am reading everything I can get my hands on. It’s a little intimidating, but I do like a challenge. This will certainly be a test of patience for me. I have the plans for Sunshine, a 10’ 6” yacht tender originally designed in 1914 and has beautiful lines. I actually opted to buy the lofted p...

Large variety of exotic hardwoods and wood working tools. Free for my fellow LJocks

12-27-2017 05:46 AM by kiara583 | 20 comments »

Helped a friend move from large house with fully equipped woodworking shop to a smaller home. The overwhelming task of packing a 3500 sq ft house plus shop was difficult. Ran out of storage room so everything else was to be thrown out. Thought it would be a shame to throw it away so I spent a week hoping someone would appreciate this treasure. Will post more pictures. Turning tools, large dust collector, drill press, saws etcs. Could sell but would rather share. I only have time invested ...

Cedar Entertainment Unit #9: Shoji screens coming together finally haha

08-27-2017 09:41 PM by icemanhank | 1 comment »

I still have a bit of work to do on them but I can see the end of the road. I have used all traditional methods to do the joints etc on these and have learnt a hell of a lot about accurate marking and cutting, a long and quite difficult but very enjoyable task!

ATTN OKLAHOMA WOODWORKERS!!

05-10-2017 02:49 PM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

So I noticed after looking on Facebook that there were no woodworking guilds in Oklahoma that I could fine so I’ve made a Facebook page titled woodworkers Guild of Oklahoma basically just because a lot of other states have a guild and my hopes are to build some networking and make some relationships with some other woodworkers locally because to be quite honest I don’t have but one friend who is a woodworker and he can’t do anything right now because of a personal injury. ...
