Widdershins Joinery Blog #3: About My Shop

09-09-2014 11:01 PM by WiddershinsJoinery | 1 comment »

I’ve mentioned it, and will probably continued to do so, in my blog posts a great deal about my shop. Details and highlights, project photos and renovation plans. Here, though, will sit an occasionally updated list of details surrounding the shop itself. The building and some photos to act as a springboard into my winter wonderland. Nestled behind our outport home, just 50 feet from the saltwater shore, is the workshop building. The images to the right are the views, left and right...

Great Grandad's bar

01-21-2013 11:01 AM by needshave | 10 comments »

I thought you might like to see the bar made by my great Grandad. He made the bar for my grandfather in the 1800’s. My grandfather owned a tavern/bar and it was used there for decades. His son, my uncle, took over the bar and inherited the bar with it. It stayed there until the close of the tavern around 1960. My father then took the bar and used it as a back counter in his business. I remember it well. It was painted grey with red trim and and had pressed hardboard on the top. I rememb...

Another Roman plane #1: Taking shape

In the first couple of centuries or so A.D, The Germani tribe was dominant in northern Denmark. Following military victories, it was their tradition to hurl war booty into the nearest bog! Just near Odense, is a massive bog called Vimose containing a considerable quantity of these war booty sacrifices. In the 1860s excavations took place there and the peaty conditions preserved a large number of wooden objects including two wooden planes, probably made by the Romans, now known as Vimose...

Inspiring Young Woodworkers #1: A Special Gift from Charles Neil

11-26-2007 09:51 PM by David | 15 comments »

Click for Large Format Movie I just posted this on my woodworking blog and felt it was something important to share with my fellow Lumberjocks. I am sure many of us can remember middle school and high school woodshop. It is a sad state of affairs that industrial arts are being dropped due to budget constraints. It is up to each of us to help pass on the joy and traditions of woodworking. Those of you that have followed any of my entries on Lumberjocks.com, The Folding Rule Podcast or...

Arrival of the Historic Church Altar; Restoration and Making two Matching Side Altars

12-18-2006 07:04 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 3 comments »

I have been waiting for several weeks for the arrival of the Church Altar that I am to copy and make two Side Altars to match. The Altar was delivered to my shop this past Saturday, and I am told that the down payment check is in the mail. Of course, the Altar looked smaller in the big church room. And, I started to “cold-sweat” a little looking at the task before me. I like new projects that have elements that make me sweat and worry, so this is right up my alley, so to spe...
