General thoughts on life and woodworking #2: Gorilla Glue Contest

05-06-2010 02:31 PM by Jack_T | 0 comments »

Well I had not planned on entering the Gorilla Glue Contest but now I am. OOPS! I had the scrap. I had the glue. I even had the finish. What I did not have was a project that would use the glue. As of last night that changed! I salvaged the cedar from an old picnic table and benches that I had retired a few years ago. It looked horribly weathered, but I assumed that underneath it would be ok, and who in their right mind would want to throw away an entire picnic table of cedar. Th...

"Wo kann ich Holz finden!?" or "Where can I find wood!?"

08-25-2011 05:02 PM by Ryan | 6 comments »

I’ve been desperate for anywhere to find wood, or Holz. I try and find simple wood and I can’t find any! I’m getting desperate! This is how low I’ve sunk. I currently was in the PX looking for some things for the kitchen, and I found aromatic cedar hangs. In my desperation, like Gollum, I snatched several up and clutched them to my chest as though someone was going to steal them from me. I feel like an addict, trying to find a fix.. HELP ME GET MY FIX!!! :D

A Tribute to the Man who taught me...

05-28-2009 01:58 PM by Derrek LeRouax | 18 comments »

About a year ago, my grandfather approached me about building a project with him in his shop. He had done this many times before, but the arrogant kid/teenager/college student never had the time. However, this time I jumped at the idea. I don’t know if it was the timing, the project, etc… but everything seemed to work out. To understand the importance of this, you have to understand that my family is not one of those “close-knit” family units. Everybody is divorced (some a couple of times)...

I just wanted to share with my Lumber Jock family on my DIY project of the month win from West Lake Ace Hardware for the month of July. This was a shock for me because I never win any thing. I was board one day & saw the entry on Facebook & said what the heck and entered. I forgot all about it when I received an e-mail Monday saying I won for the Month of July. I was very skeptical of this e-mail at first & thought it might be a scam or some one messing with me. We it just go̵...

A coffee table made from an old fire pit

06-01-2015 12:56 AM by Chris McDowell | 6 comments »

View a video of this build here: We had an old fire pit where we had taken its top off and were using it on a different base in the backyard. The old base was taking up space in the shop, so I was going to throw it away, but then had the thought to make a table top for it. I used cedar and teak oil finish since I had planned on using the table outside, but we are actually using it inside now. The cedar was green so there was a good bit of warp...

Raised Panels

06-20-2008 05:21 PM by Bill Akins | 7 comments »

I am starting a cedar hope chest soon with some free cedar that was given as a gift. My plans call for raised panels which I have been wanting to try. The only router bits I can find are for 1/2 inch shank and I have a 1/4 inch shank router. I really can’t go out and get $200 worth of bits and a new router at this moment. I tried a test panel on the table saw holding the panels vertically on a high fence jig and it turned out pretty well. I have been studying on trying to do it hor...

There were a few bits and pieces left over after I milled the one third of the slab of White Cedar that Col gave me for milling his two thirds.. That is after I bookmatched the resawn piece… I set up the Incra Mitre Express and using a Magswitch as a stop cross cut some 12 mm [1/2 inch] pieces of endgrain…these were 200 mm [8 in] by 50 mm [2 in] .... and then book matched them I did one glue up with 8 pieces… destined for a serving tray.. This pic is taken sho...

Marine Corps Naval cannon project #6: Another boring adventure.

07-26-2016 08:57 PM by Trapper brandenburger | 3 comments »

Today I finished up mortising the crossmember in and bored them for all thread. (Thanks for the tip tblank). I also routered a groove in the elevation platform for the elevation wedge to slide on. Then I did a dry fit of everything. I have a few other things to do on this project but I should be able to start glueing tomorrow! Elevation platform and wedge. Here I am marking the main runners for boring be taping this all thread thru my crossmember. Time to test fit! Front Rear
