Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #21: "The reason for the season"- It's almost time for the Stumpies!

787 days ago by StumpyNubs | 11 comments »

All of us find ourselves in sticky situations once in a while. I remember the time I was hunched over that mysterious package somebody had left in a busy children’s store. I heard a child say “Mommy, why’s that box ticking…” I sprung into action, sweeping the little girl out of harm’s way. “Stand back everybody, I know what to do” As I rolled up my sleeves and the young mothers began to faint, I was finally able to get a good look at the danger ...

A little contest at Popular Woodworking

1838 days ago by acanthuscarver | 4 comments »

I know posts come and go rather quickly here but I thought I’d see if I could generate a little Lumberjock interest in something over at the PopWood blog. Glen Huey was out at my place last week teaching a class on the tea table he made for the June 2008 issue of Popular Woodworking. Amongst all the teaching, building and visits from Karson and David, we managed to squeeze in a bit of fun. The weather here last week was absolutely perfect. Each day we ate lunch outside. And each day,...

Thorsen Table contest #3: getting started

2653 days ago by scottb | 17 comments »

One of my first ideas for this challenge was to make a “green” table – as in recycled, not painted. After weeks of pondering, and ultimately ignoring the problem of where to begin, and more importantly, what to use, I remembered that I had this door sitting in my shed. It may have been original to the house, but has been collecting dust for the past 5 or so years since we bought the house and replaced the exterior doors – this one had dog door cut out of it and was ...

Thorsen Table contest #4: what so many legs you have

2650 days ago by scottb | 16 comments »

Had a slight mishap today when I went to mill the legs down so they'd be the proper width after applying a "veneer" edge, I accidentally cut all the pieces! I should have left the those at the final width, I got a little carried away. A little creative thinking and milling a few more pieces out of the remaining door stock, and I'll have legs that will ultimately be a mere 3/16ths skinnier, but and I'm able to proceed using only this reclaimed door lumber. I've thought the inspiration ...

Thorsen Table contest #8: pile of small parts

2619 days ago by scottb | 9 comments »

I should have made a paper template of the parts for this table (actual size). Until I finally cut everything down to size I didn't really see how small this table really was, and with the off cuts I have lying around (had I been more careful early on) I could have made a pair of tables! Lesson learned there. Oddly I did this with my first box in order to figure out my cut list (and how to best maximize a tiny piece of cherry I used for it. If only I remembered. Anyhow, I'm feeling ...
