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...

The inspiring treasures of a Grandfathers woodwork

03-05-2012 12:17 AM by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

Hey friends, I wanted to share a project/blog….that never got on here, as it was done probably in the late 1960’s from what I have learned. I remember as a child going and snooping as all young kids do..and going into my Grandparents bedroom and being in awe…of this wooden closet…lol. My father told me that this became a side project of my Grandfathers and he did it as a pastime hobby.I am amazed that the work is so clean all done in Cedar…and so new lookin...

Standup Paddleboard Paddles #6: Paddles #3 and 4 and I finally get to use my Dowelmax

12-01-2007 03:29 AM by Bob Babcock | 10 comments »

I’ve decided I really like making paddles. Very creative outlet and not only is it artistically challenging but the dynamics of the blade design are really interesting as well. I’ve got 5 paddles in the works at the moment but #3 is different from my earlier ones. Straight shaft, teardrop, no laminations, dovetail. I added some geometric woodburning, somewhat primitive looking. It also has a channel, kind of the reverse of a dihedral feeding into the dovetail. Paddle #3 I...

Urban logging #2: The start of some rustic cedar end tables

09-03-2008 11:00 PM by Daren Nelson | 15 comments »

I had a short piece of cedar log laying around I had saved for “something”, just not quite sure what at the time. It dawned on me today (between pouring rainstorms) to cut some small rustic table top slabs. You can see I don’t stand the log straight up. I have cut many smaller pieces like this for game/fish mounts for a local taxidermist. I found if I cut them on a angle they do not check and bust open, they dry intact. It does make for a weird edge that needs softened/ro...

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...

We finished the base and the pedestal, they have both been sprayed with the finish and now the top has been bolted on to the base. So now we are inalying the malachite Tim is using the dremmel tool and cleaning up and soft spots and natural cracks so we can add the stone All the inlay has been set and is now drying When it is all dry we will sand it down and fill in the gaps with a finer crushed stone, sand again and then spray the top

Cedar Deck

01-30-2013 04:56 AM by Marty5965 | 5 comments »

Last spring I decided to replace the pressure-treated deck on the back of our house. It was only 7 years old but had not faired well in the Ohio weather. The rails had warped badly and the deck boards were cupping in too many places to warrant a selective repair. This picture is actually of the biggest spider web I have ever seen, but it is the only before picture I have. After the ubiquitous weeks of planning (and much discussion over copious cold ones) I recruited one of my riding bud...
