Just had to add my own free wood gloat. Last fall a friend of a friend decided to clean out his workshop. My friend called me and asked if I was interested. I couldn’t get there fast enough. We loaded up in my truck and hit the road. Let me say first I thought I might get 2 or 3 boards out of this trip but decided what the heck. We get there and talk to the guy and he’s decided he doesn’t have the room for everything he had and we started loading my truck up. And kept loadin...
Cedar Chests My latest project is the construction of two solid Cedar blanket chests. The inspiration for this project came from a traditional source, my wife. After another summer of moths eating tiny holes in her winter sweaters she made the suggestion that it would be good to have a Cedar Chest to store her sweaters. I was not enthusiastic because I have built other chest and I was thinking of building something new. But, just a couple of days later a colleague at work approached me about ...

I have been contracted to supply a boutique somewhere in New Mexico with 36 pairs each of Red Heart and Cedar candle holders, with the promise of more orders to come before summer. Also a local T-Shirt shop has just ordered 75 tie dyed shirts—all purple because of the high school colors—and they want them before the end of the month. I’ve been busy building my assembly table and moving some things in my shop, but I’ll put that on hold to get these jobs out on tim...
I’ve been telling my girlfriend I would make her a blanket chest for quite a while. Now that I have a tablesaw I figured there was no time like the present to get the project started. I have owned a copy of “The New Yankee Workshop” book for a really long time so I thought I would make the blanket chest from that book. It’s simple, has joinery that isn’t too complicated, and presents what I think is a good first project to learn how to set up and use my saw. ...
This is my first project since joining the site, and my second woodworking project overall. Last week, I completed the Kreg workbench so I’d have an area to build other projects on. After seeing the shoerack built by mckenziedrums here: _http://lumberjocks.com/projects/26304_ I liked the project so well, I thought I’d try to closely reproduce it, with a few changes of my own. I didn’t have, nor did I want to purchase any curly maple. I also just picked up a couple c...
We order a few redwood slabs off of ebay, We were supprised when they came they were quite large, one was 44” wide and 84” long and the other was 27” wide and 72” long. They were cut in a way that most edges were a natural live edge, Which gave them a nice free form look, Redwood was a lot softer than i had thought it wood be but nice to work with.We decide to create a redwood coffee table out of the first piece. I have a friend that has a 36” planer wit...
I recently came across a supply of lumber from a business here in Cincinnati, OH, Midwest Woodworking. It is owned by a second generation businessman, Frank David. The warehouse he has is probably well over 40,000 sq feet. Spread out across 2 floors are some of the longest complete boules of lumber I’ve ever seen in Sapele, Mahogany and Makore. He lets customers dig through some of the most amazing piles of lumber and pick your favorite boards. One board, or 1,000’s of bd/ft, ...
