The art of building Wooden boats

03-16-2016 03:14 AM by BigBrownLog | 8 comments »

I’m just getting this blog post started so it already set up, but in the next 6 months I should have everything up and running for me to build wooden boats for people. I’ll be starting out with some strip built kayaks and canoes most likely. In all actuality I have no idea what people are going to want. I plan on just getting the word out and let people come to me so we can sit down and draw up exactly what they want. After I’ve got a good thing going I will start cold moldi...

A phone call from Santa this morning

12-26-2011 12:29 AM by Trev_Batstone | 5 comments »

My step-son, who is a carpenter and fine woodworker (his full time career) phoned me this morning (Christmas day). We will be seeing him this evening for dinner at another relative’s place, so he asked me on the phone if I own a jointer yet, to which I replied “no”. He said he would bring me a Delta jointer to the dinner location this evening. I couldn’t believe my ears, but he said he has the jointer sitting in his workshop and it never gets used, so he is dona...

Should I give up woodworking???

02-11-2008 05:05 PM by itsme_timd | 26 comments »

OK, this is just plain sad… I KNOW I’m not the best of the best (yet) but I have to say it was mighty insulting that my entry in the “Not Just Any Box” contest received fewer points than Hap’s entry, “Cedar”. I mean, come on! It’s a picture of a LOG! Let’s compare: Does it have a lid?TD – YesHap – Nooooo… Is it boxy?TD – YesHap – Not so much Can you store items in it?TD – YesHap – ...

It’s that time of year once again. The 2nd Annual Whirligig Wars event is approaching! Woodworkers around the globe are beginning to construct their whimsical whirligigs with the hope of winning one of the great prizes this year. Whirligig Wars came to life last year when woodworkers across the globe battled it out and waged a war in wood. Due to it’s success Whirligig Wars has gained recognition from woodworkers and woodworking enthusiasts across the globe. In the Summer...

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...

Cedar Driveway Gate #4: Creating the Arc Template

05-08-2016 07:36 PM by WoodHoarder | 0 comments »

In the midst of jointing and planing the stock, I took a bit of time to create the template for the arch. Eventually I will use it to draw the arch on the boards and will use a pattern bit to finish up the edges. I posted the second go around as I messed up the measurements on the first. I used CAD to determine how the arch will fit and the dimensions. Using the two stick method (which I learned from other LumberJocks) I drew the top of the arch. Cut outside the line with th...

Marine Corps Naval cannon project #2: The Brass

07-14-2016 03:03 PM by Trapper brandenburger | 3 comments »

I’ve received the brass hardware back from blasting and polishing. Now I can start cutting and laying out pieces for the carriage! I’ve spoken to several retired navy sailors and found out that people would take spent shells and or parts from decommission ships and cast them into other parts. So WM.C. Capehart was probably the person that made the cast pattern and the U.S.S. Vulcan was a repair ship that served beginning in the 1940’s and was scrapped in 2006. Here is the Wi...

Renovation - Industrial Warehouse #1: The Proud Pauper's Way

02-02-2009 04:59 AM by Scott Parsons | 2 comments »

Well, it all started just a couple weeks before Christmas. I knew it was coming but didn’t appreciate the impact it would have. My girlfriend, Heather, and I decided that we wanted to live together but I didn’t want to leave my living space because it’s in the building I work in and I always wanted that warehouse living experience before I decided to truck it back out to the country. When I moved into this 500sq. foot shed-within-a-bigger-shed it was a nightmare. I kne...
