making a shadow box chest #1: My husband is retiring after 24 years of service in the US Navy

04-17-2013 09:32 AM by thejaegers | 5 comments »

__My husband is retiring, soon, after 24 years of service in the US Navy and I am in search of something special for him in terms of a shadow box. I am new to this site and have never “blogged” before so, here goes. I recently found a shadow box chest, a most impressive one I might add, on this web site and I would love to be able to find someone to make the same for me. Since I am new to this site it will not allow me to message the individual for information on this particular i...

Workbench Build #36: Back at it.. Fitting the Tool Well...

08-05-2013 08:13 PM by Airframer | 12 comments »

Well, now that I am done distracting myself with mallets, saw benches and cleaning it is time to get back at this. I have set an arbitrary deadline of September(ish) for completion of this bench so it is time to ramp things up a bit. We left off with a partially fitted end cap in the last blog. A bit more progress has been made there. I have the Dovetails cut and “fitted (will require more plugs and shims.. perhaps by the 4th dovetail I will have this figured out?) As before I ...

Bridal chest #3: Cover and cedar

07-21-2014 08:40 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

today i got the chest cover routed. This is a simple chest so I did a simple edge. A plain cove. .. . I braced the underside of the cover with maple cross pieces. Four recessed screws and glue. .tapered plugs will fill the screw head holes. I’ll chisel them off and sand them tomorrow after the glue dries. .I picked up a couple of boxes of aromatic cedar at home depot. Pretty expensive stuff I might add. It’s glued and pin nailed in. the pin nails of course are l...

Lumber Supply Resource In the Midwest

12-10-2009 07:59 PM by Andy Brownell | 7 comments »

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, ...

Cedar Driveway Gate #8: Tenons and Some Details

06-23-2016 05:15 AM by WoodHoarder | 5 comments »

Last time was the mortises and now the tenons. I had a pretty rough time getting these cut. The biggest issue was getting the shoulders straight all the way around. The first technique was with a router and a jig. For the flat. For the edge. Having never worked with such large joints, this turned out to be incredibly tedious and I couldn’t get the shoulders to line up. I tried table saw, hand saw…. wasn’t working. So, needed a new tool. Enter Stan...

Workbench Build #42: Attaching the Base #1..

08-22-2013 03:14 PM by Airframer | 9 comments »

I got started attaching the base to the top last night. Only got about halfway through it because it was late and I didn’t want to rush through it and mess something up. But so far so good. This is mostly a short picture post but you should have an idea of what is going on here.. Once more flip and rotate the top.. Then measure out the side stretcher by the leg vise for clearance of the chain bracket.. Then got everything drilled and ready for drawboring...

Frustrated in Florida

12-12-2011 02:16 AM by TheShat | 6 comments »

Sorry for the rant, but I went to Lowes today to get some supplies for making some Christmas gifts. 1X8X8 ceder was $12 that meant my bird feeders would be $24 each in just lumber. Does anyone know were I can find any good deals on lumber in Ormond Beach, FL? I got one lead from a local woodworker, but the shop was out of business… maby its just me, is that a good price for ceder? Thanks for any help

Wood SCORE!!!

11-07-2011 09:34 PM by YBNORMAL | 13 comments »

This story starts off sad, but ends happily for me at least. A local sawyer passed away last month and the family is having trouble getting rid of all the “STUFF” he has acuminated in his long lifetime. One of the items that they were particularly interested in liquidating was his inventory of wood. LOTS OF WOOD. This gentleman had several large warehouses full of lumber of different kinds. Thousands upon Thousands of board foot of Cyprus, cherry, heart pine, SYP, white oak, r...
