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...
Are you knotty and keeping secrets? Then it’s time to get busy and creative again and compete for some great prizes in our Winter 2009 edition of the LumberJocks Woodworking Awards. You are welcome to participate in the following two categories: A Knot Like No Other – It’s creativity time!

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...

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...
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 ...
