Cedar spectacular

09-06-2008 03:18 PM by cabinetmaster | 11 comments »

In response to Karson’s wood find on cedar lumber, this is an example of some cedar lumber I found about 6 years ago. A gentleman advertised that he had some cedar lumber for sale. I called him and got directions to his place. When I got there the lumber looked like this picture. The gentleman told me that he had cut the cedar 30 years ago and it had been stored in his attic. He decided to get it down and sell it. He took it out of his attic and put it on the back porch. But befo...

Shadow Casting Lamp

09-12-2012 04:59 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 7 comments »

This shadow casting lamp creates a cool effect to any room by casting a shadow on a wall of any scene you’d like to create in the lamps silhouette panels. For this project I used horses. The front of the lamp shows a horse in a natural calm state on all 4’s . And the frosted front panel of glass gives a nice subtle tone of light to illuminate the room. The back of the lamp has a silhouette of a horse raring on it’s hind legs. This is the side that casts a shadow on...

Shoe Rack

01-26-2010 05:43 PM by Jonathan | 14 comments »

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...

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...

Game Calls #1: Turkey Friction Call

02-26-2013 12:42 PM by ghost5 | 8 comments »

Well, thanks to the comments and questions I have gotten I dug through my pics to find one I had on how to make a pot call. So for the folks that want a quick tutorial here we go. A pot call is basically a shallow dish containing two ledges inside. One is cut into the rim to hold the playing surface while the second is a ring left in the center raised to clear the bottom of the pot and still leave a space between the sound board that rests on it and the playing surface above it. One thi...

Hickory Chest Build #2: How to build a Raised Panel Hickory Chest

01-31-2012 06:06 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 0 comments »

Hi everyone. I first off want to say I am sorry it took so long to get back here. Between Facebook, Google plus and Youtube and my website http://www.asimpledesignofocala.com . I never made it back here to update this series. Well the Hickory Chest build went very well. It ended up being an eight video series from start to finish. The Hickory Chest featured Raised Panel construction and the chest was lined with cedar. This project started when a client asked me to build a blanket chest for...

How not to #1: Turn a Bowl

10-09-2007 12:53 AM by scottb | 12 comments »

The first in a, likely, long educational series, teaching by example. Poor example. Deliberately. If we don’t try (and fail quick) we may never learn how to proceed. Or reasons why the tried and true, really is. Several months back (or more) I saw some experimental turnings of Hilary Pfeifer's made from several layers of perforated hardboard, laminated into a block with woodglue. Inspired (and knowing that common wood glue would be brutal to keeping your chisels sharp) I took a bunch...

Carpenter Cut - Optimal cutlist diagram for iPad/iPhone

11-23-2011 04:03 PM by SmartCutter | 7 comments »

After my previous post here, I got numerous feedback and great ideas from professionals on this site on how to optimize the cutlist diagram to make it useful for professional wood workers. This lead me to develop “Carpenter Cut” app for iPad/iPhone devices. It goes like this: Start with a sheet of plywood (e.g. 48×96), tell it the dimensions and quantity of each part you want to cut from it. Specify the kerf (size for your saw blade (0.125 is the default)), and indicate gr...
