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...
Thanks so much for voting me into second place! I am humbled by the beautiful artistry that went into all of the birdhouses. They are an inspiration and have certainly expanded my creative boundaries through viewing each and reading the accompanying anecdotes. I am proud to belong to such a collection of skill and imagination. The greatest reward here comes in the sharing of our gifts, and I believe a hearty “thank you” is due all of those entered the contest, and for that ma...

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...

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:
Today’s post will be short and sweet. (Yah, right! you are all saying!) I really am caught up in a lot of ‘busy work’ stuff today and hopefully can accomplish everything I want to. I finished polishing up my articles yesterday and I emailed them to my editor ahead of the box of three items he accepted so I can hear sooner rather than later if he wants to use them or not. I guess I will never get over the apprehension of submitting things. I don’t look at it in as...
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...
