Boxes #1: Making Wine Boxes... Father's Day Gifts

06-23-2007 04:10 PM by gizmodyne | 15 comments »

11th hourAt the last minute I got inspired by Caliper’s gift box. I had bought some quartersawn white oak for such a project but had too much on my plate with the end of the school year. I finished report cards last Friday and decided to work on a gift for my dad and my father in law. I had a gift subscription to Wood Magazine last year. I like their detailed plans but never like the woods they use in their projects. This is from the Dec 2006 Issue. I decided to use walnut and whi...

Someone wanted to be cursed, someone needed to be nursed

05-31-2011 10:38 AM by Sodabowski | 18 comments »

Well today the postsman took me out of bed with an unexpected parcel. Having nothing pending from ebay, I was wondering WTH it was and whom it could come from. At first sight, something a bit heavy, tightly packed in bubblewrap. Okay let’s open that box. And then… GAH! Mads strikes again! And now I see why he had told me that I would curse him hahaha :D This old chap really needs some caring, everything is rusted, even the bolts inside the handles.No problem, I ha...

I got a gift today also

08-06-2010 12:06 AM by Karson | 20 comments »

My good buddy Jockmike2 gave me a call on sunday. he was out of town and wanted me to post his entry in the contest on LJ. Unfortunately, I was in my car also and I was not able to git-r-dun. But then today I received a soggy package from the post office. It was a cardboard box wrapped up in plastic wrap. I opened it up and it was a double pack of Vernors Soda. You can’t find this stuff around here and Mike said it’s readily available where he live. So he sent me a...

General thoughts on life and woodworking #5: The most important project of my life

05-11-2011 09:00 PM by Jack_T | 18 comments »

The project is not made of exotic wood. It is not a complicated piece of furniture. It does not have sophisticated joinery. It is finished only with house paint. Normally, I would consider a project like this to be a simple throw away project made for the fun of it but not very important at all. This time was very different though. It would be turn out to be the most important project of my life. The project was commissioned by my six year old daughter, Jacqueline. She came t...

refurbishing old tools #8: A suprize from a fellow LJ

03-08-2011 02:12 AM by Dave | 20 comments »

My wife has been sick the last few days, so I stayed home from work to tend to her. Every now and then I would go out to the shop and get a little done while she slept. I had started back on the dovetails and am near finished. This is one of the largest box frames I have dovetailed by hand. Pairing and rasping to clear the saw marks. The dozuki might not have much kerf but my hands wander a little while I saw. Not being able to see well doesn’t help either. Then the mail ca...

A Keychain is Born ~ 8/30/10 ~ With Video

08-30-2010 10:29 AM by dustynewt | 9 comments »

I must apologize for my lack of interaction here on LumberJocks. I am on the night shift at the paper mill and my neighbors don’t dig the 2:30 am woodworking bit, so I have been limited to my keychain work and ya’ll have seen that. It is my night off and I remembered a couple requests a while back to do a blog on my keychain process. So, here ‘tis! I hope the video comes out right. I’ve been experimenting with my CoolPix. Short videos? I can do that! So I decided to...

Making a Game for $5.00 #1: Starting Out

12-18-2009 02:54 AM by Deela40 | 4 comments »

The Bible study I am a part of is having a party for Christmas. Each person is supposed to bring one gift, spending no more than $5.00. I saw this as a challenge. $5.00 isn’t much and I wanted to offer something of higher value. Lucky for me, my wife recently brought home some free pieces of wood. She works at an art gallery and they were getting rid of some random things. She saw some wood they had used as plaques that were going to be tossed. As she is industrious and thoughtful,...
