10-11-2009 12:05 AM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 16 comments »

I finally had some time today to post this. It’s been done a couple of weeks now.With the fresh snowfall, it’s a nice cool day to cuddle up to the computer. I got the new roof section to blend in with the gazebo fairly well. Some images:~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I finished the facia with 1 X 4 Cedar Now it’ll have to age with the rest of the building.

Little Tansu Inspired Case #2: Keyed Miters and Drawer Parts

02-18-2008 04:10 AM by Dorje | 16 comments »

I had a little bit of time this afternoon to work on the little caseā€¦ I keyed the miters with walnut: Glued up the dividers: and, cut out the all the drawer parts: I’ve got drawer bottom stock prepared from the first day (in the background of the photo above), so my next step will be to cut the joinery for the drawers. And, since this is supposed to be a quick and dirty project, I’m going to rout the drawers with a drawer lock bit. Like this:

Lumber Score!

03-21-2009 06:14 PM by SteveKorz | 15 comments »

I payed a visit to a local sawyer yesterday, and during conversation we kind of hit it off. He had a whole lot of cherry logs and cedar that he wanted to sell. We ended up milling them, and then the more we talked, the more logs we milled. I walked out with a truckload of lumber. I had about 250bf of cherry, and 150-200fb of honey locust, slab cedar, silver maple, white oak, and ash…for 80 bucks. In the pic below, the very front is silver maple. The left 60% is cherry. The right ...

Hickory Chest Build #1: Hickory Chest Build

10-26-2011 09:11 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 15 comments »

Recently I started a Hickory Chest Project. This chest will feature raised panels as well as a cedar lining. I have been videoing the build. To share with viewers who might like to watch. I’m right at the point of getting ready for the finish. But before i do, I want to pose a question to my fellow Lumber Jock’s… Here is a picture of the Chest. It has some cool features. ( beetle bore holes, knots, etc.) Id like to showcase in the project. With that being said. Here is my qu...

Recently I posted a video covering common woodworking joinery ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqXLYe783qw ) with the help of a few friends.

Table Saw Finger Joint Jig Also a little reminder about the 2nd Annual Whirligig Wars. It is almost here!! The event Runs from July 10 –...

Urban logging #2: The start of some rustic cedar end tables

09-03-2008 11:00 PM by Daren Nelson | 15 comments »

I had a short piece of cedar log laying around I had saved for “something”, just not quite sure what at the time. It dawned on me today (between pouring rainstorms) to cut some small rustic table top slabs. You can see I don’t stand the log straight up. I have cut many smaller pieces like this for game/fish mounts for a local taxidermist. I found if I cut them on a angle they do not check and bust open, they dry intact. It does make for a weird edge that needs softened/ro...

Bandsaw Boxes Made Easy #9: The Grand Finale.

05-15-2009 06:50 PM by JonH | 14 comments »

Remember the chunk of wood from inside your drawer? That works nicely for a handle since the grain of the wood is all consistent. If not, you can put anything in for a handle, a dowel, a screw, a nail, a pull from the hardware store, a hole, you name it, just get that drawer open somehow. That is up to you. Once all the pieces are glued up, just sand up the body of the drawer so it fits nicely in the body. Once that is good, apply your finish. Be careful not to put too much in the dra...

Standup Paddleboard Paddles #1: What the heck is a Standup Paddleboard?

08-06-2007 10:32 PM by Bob Babcock | 14 comments »

My older brother loves water sports. Lately he has taken up SUP (standup paddleboarding) because it is easier on old geezers like himself. I say that with the greatest respect….I hope I can be half as active as he is when I’m 60+. It is basically a very large surf board with a paddle and (you gueesed it) you stand up the whole time. It’s great exercise, easier to catch waves and if no waves…just fun to paddle. If you are interested my brother has a great blog for begin...

Outdoor "Coffee" Table #1: Just an idea

07-11-2007 10:38 AM by Dorje | 14 comments »

We need a low outdoor table for drinks and food, etc., Something that would tie into the design of the chairs that we already have. My first inclination is to do this table in Western Red cedar (it’s sort of the default everything-outdoor-wood around here), but I keep thinking it would nice to try something else. Again, this is another project that I intend to do this summer, but I do have to side the house, and seal and paint it if I’m lucky (before the rains come again and ...

Serving Tray #1: The Beginning

06-06-2007 09:24 PM by MsDebbieP | 14 comments »

My new DowelMax arrived last week (see Mot's discussions re: the tool) but I haven’t had time or I haven’t made the time to try it out – until today. Why haven’t I tried it yet? Well I think I have to blame Tom’s daughter for this one—boy, if she can do it and I mess it up… oh my self-esteem will suffer!! haha Anyway, I have a birthday party to attend this Saturday and I want to make a gift rather than buying something. My goal is to make a gard...
