Trip to the library

12-28-2009 12:57 AM by 559dustdesigns | 5 comments »

I am very interested to learn more about woodworking and studing this hobby any chance I get. While visiting my sister in Florida I conned my brother inlaw into getting a W. palm beach library card so I could check out some interesting woodworking titles I can’t find back home in California. The library has an online catalog thats very helpful to find what is avaliable and which library the book is at. I really cannot afford to buy any books right now. You may consider checking out your...

Wood Labyrinth game

12-26-2009 12:48 AM by Stevinmarin | 16 comments »

Hi all, Thank you so much for all your comments on my ornament post. I am convinced: this is a great community. When I was a kid, a great toy was nothing more than a stick. And we had to walk ten miles to school in snowstorms. Uphill. Both ways. A cardboard box was a luxury. But I do remember getting a wood labyrinth one Christmas. It really grabbed my attention and enthralled me for hours. And frustrated me to no end. So this year I decided to make a labyrinth for my son Wyatt, w...

Beach wickerish cabinet #1: The plan, thoughts, I don't know.....

12-25-2009 11:50 PM by kolwdwrkr | 8 comments »

Well you all know me, well I’ll pretend you do. LOL. I like to start things when I have to much to do. That way I always have something to do, and can complain that I don’t have enough time for any of it. LOL. This is the beginning to almost a joke. At work I had to rip some beech mouldings down for a customer and the fall off was very thin strips of material. They are around 1/32” thick x 1/4” ish. There was a ton of moulding to rip, so I have a ton of these strip...

Termites in the woodpile

12-25-2009 07:11 AM by PASs | 7 comments »

Was splitting some firewood and noticed the stuff on the bottom had gotten a termite infestation….and I gotta admit I started thinking (maybe this should be a you might be a lumberjock if post) anyway, started to thinking “if I leave this for a while, the termites might do something interesting to the wood and I can make something out of it. I have some furniture my dad made using driftwood from the Gulf of Mexico. It has holes bored through it from some type of marine worms. A...

Another tutorial?

12-24-2009 05:13 PM by Andy | 18 comments »

I get many requests asking me to do a tutorial on several of my projects.The most interest is in the following items : #1-PropellersThis is the 4 ft version I made for one of the contests, but I made a 6 ft that I havent posted yet. #2-Art BoardsI think cutting boards have been covered pretty well lately, with some outstanding designs that I cant wait to try out for myself. My boards are less functional and more for display. They are pretty easy to make once you get started. They just r...

pyrographics #1: using each others talents

12-23-2009 12:06 AM by Jim Earl | 2 comments »

I often look over all the new projects displayed here on LumberJocks and think how lucky all of you really are to have the talent to be able to make so many and beautiful peices of ART. I have worked with wood for over 30 years now, everything from construction, finish carpenter, cabinate maker, craftsman and now wood burning. Many of you have seen many of my peices of work but several have not been posted. I have produce over 300 pictures in the last couple of years, and try and do alittle m...

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #5: Arched Candle Holder - On to New Heights

12-21-2009 10:45 PM by sras | 3 comments »

It seems like the arched form needs to be lifted off the table by some amount. I’m not sure by how much. My technique in situations like this is choose from a range. Start with too little and keep adding until it seems like too much. Somehwere in between “too little” and “too much” there should be a “just right” or at least a “close enough”!In this case I start adding spacers underneath each end. Here is the range of heights. The wi...

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #4: Arched Candle Holder - gettin' jiggy

12-20-2009 11:12 PM by sras | 5 comments »

Now, it’s time to cut the recesses for the candles. I had originally thought of using a Forstner bit, but it does not leave a smooth flat bottom to the recess. Instead, I used the Forstner bit to cut a pattern for use with my router. I plan to use a pattern bit with a bearing. Looks like it is time to build a jig! Since I am only building one of these, I’ll build a temporary jig. The same elements can be used to create a smaller, but permanent jig. I have two hole sizes so...

Spray Guns

12-19-2009 01:20 AM by tazz | 3 comments »

Hi everyone, well, this is my first blog, at least I think it’s a blog. I have been making toy boxes for about the last month and Believe it or not, I can’t keep up with the demand. I have made 5 toy boxes and have 3 more to do before Xmas. And my next customer wants it painted. I don’t want to buy 4 or 5 cans of spray paint, which brings me to my Question. I am looking for a spray gun to buy but don’t know much about spray guns. Of course I want it to do everything, Paint, Stain, and ...
