Working a Slab by Hand

04-27-2010 05:41 PM by davemoorefurniture | 29 comments »

If you have ever had material that is too large for your machines, fear not. In this video I demonstrate how I use a set of planes to achieve a time honored technique by flattening, thicknessing, and joining a live-edge, cherry table top. I hope you enjoy and please feel free to give me feedback so that I may improve in both my woodworking and video abilities.

07-01-2009 05:56 AM by sIKE | 7 comments »

I have been working on this project time permitting.

After fighting with a shelf that I messed up on and had to remake a new one. Talk about frustation, nothing went right with it and it took me a couple of weeks just to build one new shelf.Now this project has had many...

Wood Gloat.... Maybe?? #1: Lumber Bought at Auction

11-16-2009 04:11 PM by Scott Bryan | 15 comments »

Over the weekend I went to an auction that had 600 bf of cherry, 400 bf of walnut and 400 bf of oak for sale. I wasn’t sure how I was going to get it all back into the shop or where I would even put it if I won the wood but I thought it would be great to work on getting a wood stash that would start to rival that of Karson and Larry. When the wood was auctioned needless to say I did not win any of it. The guy that bought most of it never put his card down and so the wood went for m...

DeWalt Radial Arm Saw #3: Making Sawdust

06-16-2009 01:10 AM by CutNRun | 8 comments »

The saw is on its cabinet. The cabinet is mounted on an HTC mobile base, and all alignments have been completed. I was amazed at being able to hold within 0.001” on nearly all of the saw alignments and adjustments. As the old saying goes, they don’t make them like this any more. The cabinet is made of poplar plywood with cherry border trim. I wasn’t able to locate baltic birch. The trays are simple design that ride in slots cut into a hardboard skin. Simple but ...

Split Roubo Workbench #1: I have put this off for far too long

03-20-2012 02:32 AM by lysdexic | 127 comments »

Ok, so let me get this blog started before I get so far behind that I put it off – forever. It is undisputed that the most important tool in the woodworking shop is a proper workbench. I don’t have one. I will not rehash the nuances of workbench design but after reading Schwarz’s and Scott Landis’s books, I had my heart set on a Roubo bench. I am not alone as several LJ’s have posted wonderful roubo benches. At first I wanted to build this… I r...

Live in the shop...Creating bandings for Wood Inlay

10-24-2010 07:44 PM by Bob Simmons | 9 comments »

Today we are creating bandings from scratch. We’ve got some ideas for the wood inlay designs so we are ripping on the table saw, sanding on the drum sander, and gluing. At some point we will cut banding segments on the dedicated miter saw and then gluing some more. Plus we will be doing a bit of video shoots for the next release. Feel free to stop by. visit…The Apprentice and The Journeyman ...........Learn more, Experience more!

Tips On Harvesting Beach Wood Or Drift Wood

01-05-2013 04:26 PM by OregonBurls | 11 comments »

Processing Beach wood I took a trip to the beach for wood yesterday and that I will share some lessons that I have learned throughout the years of harvesting off the beach. Harvesting beach wood for turning or your wood project is a lot of work but you know how we are… Yah we are like kids in a candy store. We will beige, borrow or steal to get our candy. Well hopefully not steal. I like beach wood because it is more stable than green wood. It has been soaking and drying and soakin...

Tumbling block cutting board techniques, lessons learned and tips for cutting and assembly

01-13-2014 02:32 PM by jfk4032 | 9 comments »

After looking through some other blogs here on LJ and watching some Youtube videos I thought that the tumbling block cutting board was something that looked challenging, cool and something I wanted to try. I learned some good ideas from these other blogs and wanted to share some of my experiences having now made three of these, my setbacks and discoveries to better produce these tumbling block patterns. I purchased a Wixey digital angle gauge as it looked like you really needed to be accu...

Thinking about making a go at saw milling

12-19-2011 04:29 AM by NewEnglandsWoodWorks | 19 comments »

I have been intrigued by the Logosol chainsaw mill for quite a long time now. In particular the M7 Chainsaw Mill. But in the high two thousand dollar range, it is way out of my budget. I believe that the mill is not nearly worth that price. I So, I think I’m going to start making my own chainsaw mill out of wood! I plan to make a wooden platform for the log bed with steps so I can move the log up one at a time. To control the depth of cut I am going to build a sled that will slide a lo...

The Splined Mitre Joint

07-08-2010 03:51 AM by Bob Simmons | 7 comments »

The Splined Mitre Joint is a decorative yet very strong joint. The addition of the spline and glue makes a regular mitre joint all the more stronger while aiding in keeping the mitre nice and tight. By using a contrasting wood the woodworker can achieve a very distinctive appearance at the joint. This woodworking video tutorial shows how the spline mitre joint is made using a woodworking jig on the tablesaw. For more information.visit…www.TheApprenticeandTheJourneyman.com.........
