Build a simple garden bench. And a contest!

824 days ago by Stevinmarin | 8 comments »

To build this bench, you will just need a saw (any kind), a drill, and some screws. I built mine with four 2×4s and six 1×3 boards. Total cost: $30. But wait! Win Kreg tools too! Post a video entry on YouTube. (Not LJ please!) *Edit: here are lengths of the boards:

Frank Lloyd Wright Contest #1: The Rules

805 days ago by JoeyG | 34 comments »

I would like to start a friendly competition based on the works of Frank Lloyd Wright. The rules are pretty basic and I have tried to make them so that anyone can enter no matter what your woodworking style is. 1) The piece must be based on a work or works of Frank Lloyd Wright. 2) The piece must be a box or vessel. Basically it must be able to hold something inside it. 3) Any woodwork technique can be used as long as it fits in with the other rules. 4) Any materials can...

Daddy's Little Helper Workbench

358 days ago by 47phord | 7 comments »

I’ve been meaning to make my 8 year-old a workbench so he can ‘help’ me when I’m out in the shop, but kept putting it off. When I saw Baligh’s latest contest, I couldn’t think of an idea for a project, then it hit me: “I’ll make a workbench!”. So, here it goes. This is what I started with: 1- 8’ 2×8 piece of Douglas Fir, 6 board feet of 1×6 pine, 1-4×4x1/2 sheet of CDX plywood (not shown), 1-3’x1” ...

Summer Joinery Entry Shaker Cabinet #1: How I got started

2581 days ago by Karson | 6 comments »

After Martin announced the Summer Contest and the Themes Garden Project and Wood Joinery I started thinking about what I wanted to build. The contest rules state “Wood Joinery – Let’s get technical – but without glues, metal nails, screws or other mechanical fasteners! Yes, this is the “WOOD JOINERY” challenge for all you LumberJocks out there. Let’s see what you are made of – or rather what your woodworking project is made of. If you can build it wit...

Summer Joinery Entry Shaker Cabinet #4: Almost Done - Well really its done now,

2580 days ago by Karson | 6 comments »

Almost Done> As I was reading the previous posted blogs on the construction of the Summer 2007 LumberJocks Joinery, I noticed that I failed to complete the posting of the latch for the cabinet door. Not only had I failed to post it, I had failed to install it. I wanted to use something like a clothes pin. The little loop that catches the wire for hanging clothes. I had created my wire simulation out of wood. This was installed in the end of a shelf board. The space behind the Holl...

Step Stool #10: Hey Brother, Can You Spare a Vote?

2138 days ago by Eric | 4 comments »

I’ve entered my step stool in a contest on SmartFlix (think NetFlix for DIYers). While I do believe in “May the best man win,” I’m no fool: all the other contestants are probably trying to get votes just like I am! So how about it? Click on the link to go to the contest page. Thanks in advance for your vote! P.S. I plan to do a write-up on SmartFlix in the near future, so stay tuned for that.
