oak box #10: coat of wet finish

12-06-2013 03:15 AM by Dan'um Style | 6 comments »

Sanded this one to 150 grit and figured a good wet coat of lacquer might bring out the grain a bit. The rosewood and turquoise together for the photo. Will glue last. The turquoise is from eBay China. Fun stuff.

LONDON BURL #2: LONDON BURL #2

09-04-2013 10:37 PM by bazz135uk | 3 comments »

!https://s3.amazonaws.com/lumberjocks.com/msmhcxu.jpg! Down an an unassuming backstreet north of BURNHAM SOUTH BUCKS ENGLAND, you’ll find – improbably – 540 acres of beech and birch woodland, with cows, pigs, sheep and ponies grazing contentedly alongside dog-walkers and families out for a stroll. Equally surprisingly, this ancient pocket of gnarly forest, ponds and heath – some of the trees predate Shakespeare – is owned by the Corporation of London, who snapped it up in 1880 to ...

Turning Gasoline into Lumber #1: Before you have lumber, you need to make timber.

07-01-2013 12:12 PM by Rock Run Bushcraft | 2 comments »

Not all wood comes from the hardware store or sawmill, some wood comes from your front lawn. New Chainsaw. We are freeing the caught-up 80 foot white oak inclined tree that came down in a storm. We are endeavoring to bring it to the ground safely. One cut down. Almost to the ground now. After we get it fully to the ground and bucked then we will be slabbing it out with the ganberg alaskan sawmill. We get an average of three trees down a year in our wooded lot. T...

barn board projects #1: furniture & flooring

06-18-2013 06:11 AM by Trac | 0 comments »

I am tearing down our 150+ year old pine/hemlock barn and love the look of the barn wood. I want to use some to make 2 tables, chairs, banquette, and flooring. We have found one nest of termites in the rafters. I wont be using any roofing wood, but I am extremely concerned about bringing bugs into my home. What do I need to do to ensure that all my lumber is pest free?

Roubo Inspired Bench #1: A "slight departure" from the Woodwhisperer Roubo Workbench Build

05-24-2013 02:34 AM by jusfine | 7 comments »

The desire for a new workbench was born before Marc began his Roubo build last year, but I can’t say his 2012 videos did not throw more fuel on the fire, as did some of the “Worbench of your Dreams” discussions and topics here. Personally, I need more space for storage, and it seems to be a waste to me to have an open base, so I decided to build an enclosed base, and in doing so, it caused me some design problems as I began to wander away from the WW plan. The more sites ...

Construction Steps for Kevin Rodel Arts and Craft Chairs #1: Crest Rail Construction

05-03-2013 04:16 AM by kbiniowa | 2 comments »

Quartersawn oak blanks are cut to 14” long and 1 5/8” thick. The upper crest rails are 3” wide and the lower rails are 2 ½” wide. I chose to construct the chair with floating tenons so that I could mill and cut all of the rails to the exact same length. A bench-top mortising machine is used to make the mortises for the upper and lower crest rails. The 3/8” chisel is set exactly parallel to the machine’s fence, then an auxiliary fence is installed and shimmed to the proper angle required. Sto...

Milling Process for Rear Leg Construction

04-10-2013 10:03 PM by kbiniowa | 1 comment »

I am currently making six chairs and the process is truly time consuming. GrampaDoodie’s (Dale Peterson) did an excellent job describing the his chair making journey in his Lumberjock’s Blog. I highly recommend looking at this: Lumberjocks.com/GrampaDoodie/blog . I am not going to reinvent the wheel here, but show what steps I did differently than Grampa_Doodie or Kevin Rodel. Kevin Rodel suggested that one would construct a jig to hold lumber and then use a hand held router to...

Finishing Tips #5: Finishing tips #5

03-27-2013 07:03 PM by pjones46 | 8 comments »

One of the parts of woodworking that many would like to do better is finishing, and that includes me. On my quest to obtain the background I have bought books, talked with professionals in the field, and searched high and low on the internet to find the answers to my questions. Some of the questions arose as I was completing a project but others were generated by what I had read. As I have gotten older I say to myself, “I know I have read something about this particular procedure”, but I...
