Shoe Rack

1641 days ago 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.

1897 days ago 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...

Shadow Casting Lamp

681 days ago 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...

What Is Burl?

685 days ago by OregonBurls | 9 comments »

What Is Burl? I have discovered that this question is the most searched question for burls on the internet. Over 140,000 times world wide per month. So I read what Wikipedia’s definition is and found out that they are not clear and in some details are wrong in their definition. So I am going to attempt to clear the muddy waters. First of all Wikipedia says: “A burl (American English) or bur or burr (used in all non-US English speaking countries) is a tree growth in which the grain ha...

Redwood Slabs

1680 days ago by dougdeg | 5 comments »

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...

Carpenter Cut - Optimal cutlist diagram for iPad/iPhone

975 days ago 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...

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...

Piano Reconstruction... (Cont..)

917 days ago by jeth | 3 comments »

Ok, with the panels laid up I got the edges planed to trim to final dimensions then, i have to admit, for fear of tearout I sanded rather than smoothing the faces with a hand plane. Here shooting the edging strip that covers the top end of the lamination, the idea was to bring this down to about 1/16” so that it would coincide more or less with the round over on the edges and become near invisible.. Now to get the other bits done.. Keyboard supports....
