If I don’t get a lot done in the next couple evenings, this will be a mute point I know. But, I was wondering if you guys would consider my crib able to be entered in the contest. I’ve never entered anything yet and thought it’d be a neat side note to the crib story. The lumber is all from my wife’s uncle. Him and his father milled it 20 plus years ago. We helped him haul a bunch of good quality lumber out of a place he rented to his farm. After that was finished, h...
Hi all,I don’t know if everyone pays attention to the annual contest on LJ’s, but this one I don’t understand. I just can’t figure out what this contest wants us to do. I even asked a couple of friends of mine, thinking that it was me not knowing what this has to do with. They did not know either. How are we suppose to show fluidity or movement in wood? If that is what this is saying. Can someone please explain what they are asking us for in this contest? Below is ...
Many of you may have already heard about Steve Good’s blog. For several years now, Steve puts out a blog nearly every day to promote scroll sawing. In fact, it is because of Steve that I began my own blog on the Lumberjocks.com site and now have nearly 1300 entries. He has become a friend and a mentor of mine, and he was the one who introduced me to Lumberjocks.com. Steve’s blog and website is great. Not only does it have the blog, but it also has a wonderful and active foru...
We have completed the entry phase of the Summer Contest 27 Entries have been entered into the Outdoor Projects. 18 Entries have been entered into the Joinery Projects. Good luck to all entrants. And we wish the best to each and everyone of them. We also wish the best who were unable to complete in time or were unable to even get started. There will be more contests and challenges. I’d like a greater number next time. Karson
This morning (May 1st, 2009) The Sawdust Chronicles 2009 Spring 30-Day Build Challenge (I’m trying to think of a longer name, so send me suggestions) began! With 43 actively interested contestants (23 Beginners, 15 Amateurs, and 1 Professional woodworker), 4 sponsors (Rockler, Woodcraft Magazine, Kreg Tools, General Finishes) over 250 emails, and about 150 hours already devoted to breathing life into the contest, it is now up to the contestants to determine how it all proceeds. Up...
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 ...
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,...

The Sawdust Chronicles’ 30-Day Challenge is simply that – a challenge. We will be challenging you, the beginning woodworker, to complete a woodworking project within 30 days. We pick the project, you find or create the plans, you iron out the details, you complete the project, and you reap the rewards. The level of difficulty of the challenge should be self-scaled depending on your level of woodworking talent. A majority of the challenge is dependent upon the honor system. There ...
This is GarageWoodworks first woodworking contest. Woodpeckers provided me with their 12 inch Precision Woodworking T Square . It looks like a really cool tool and is an $80 value! I’m going to give it away to the winner of the ‘You’ve Been Framed’ contest. Here’s how it’s going to work: Make a cool picture frame and enter it . That’s it! Judging will take place in 4-weeks and will be poll based. That’s right! Your woodworking peers wil...
