After a month of development based on the feedback I got here, I finally managed to release Carpenter Pro, this time, it calculates how many plywood sheets are needed to finish your project and get detailed cutlist diagram for each stock sheet needed. It allows you to specify the dimensions & grain direction for your stock sheets material, specify the dimensions and the required grain direction for each part you need to cut for your project, and set the kerf amount, then watch this app ge...
Since last time, I finished fitting all the slats and the center panel: I started out by fitting the tenons in the bottom rail. Then I marked at the top how long and at what angle the top tenons should be. After much thought and planning, I finally was able to glue the whole thing up. Here’s the result! What do you think?!? There’s still a lot to do, but it’s coming along nicely! Alan
I’m building a side table out of African Mahogany (G&G design). And I wanted to use a different type of wood for the apron. What is a good fit for it? I thought of spalted maple but I think it would look too busy. And how do I post a picture here? I wanted to show my A. Mahogany. Thanx
I know I’ve been having a busy summer and hadn’t been on Lumberjocks in quite a while but I didn’t realize it had been nearly 6 months… I haven’t been doing much of anything in my shop for the last several months either but now that summer is nearly over I expect that to change real soon. This weekend or next I’ll be making a trip to Crosscut Hardwoods in Seattle to stock up on some Mahogany for my next Greene and Greene style project. I hope everyone ha...
What do you think would happen if a Lumberjock and his wife found out they were expecting a day after returning from their trip to Pasadena, CA where they toured the Gamble House? Of course, a Greene and Greene inspired crib design would shortly follow! This is the third blog I have started having not finished the first two, but this project will absolutely be done by February. How could I live with having to buy a mass produced crib for our new baby? I studied the regulations for cri...
Recently, I broke down and bought the Bosch enclosed router table, the excellent Incra v120 miter gauge and the Incra Miter Express. In addition to improving my general accuracy on the router table and table saw, my goal will be to craft my own custom spaced and sized box joints and dovetail joints. So far, I can say that all three have done more than I had been able to do with my prior gear. Prior to the Bosch table, I built a small router table insert for my tablesaw (a Delta TS350) th...

My wife and I built out new house last year and I decided that I would make the stairs. I am a fan of Greene and Greene and admire the Hall Bros. work on staircases so I designed the stairs in the “GnG” style. It’s going to be a big project to work on in evenings and spare time, but I have more time than money – so that works out.The stock is all air dried Black Walnut with Mountain Mahogany accents. Rails run from 1” to 3 1/2 “ thick – I designed the paneling for the wall, but...
I just wanna tank everyone on lumberjocks who has commented on my pics and has given me advice I won’t b on lj’s for a while cause I broke my arms and a toe
