The trouble with Yew

02-12-2010 03:10 AM by JuniorJoiner | 11 comments »

I’m not sure how many Lumberjocks are familiar with Pacific Yew(taxus breufolia i think)I first heard of it a few years ago. here on the west coast of Canada it grows. hidden away and rare beyond measure, few if any typical wood suppliers carry it. And what is available is often small and gnarly. Being on the local wood kick. I decided it was a wood for me. Hard and a Rare orange colour, I did not think it could have any drawbacks. Then I tried to find some. Yew, as a wood is as ...

Solid Wood Door glue-ups / Tips and Techniques

02-11-2010 03:15 AM by KnotWright | 6 comments »

One of the best things about Lumberjocks is that an individual can be exposed to so many different ways to do the same task. While you are working in your shop, you aren’t really exposed to too many different ways, normally the way you were taught, or how you figured it out, tends to be the way we always end up doing things. This way might not be the most efficient or productive, but it does get the job done. My question for everyone is how do you do the following task: I”...

New To Woodworking #2: Setup

02-08-2010 01:33 AM by Requiem | 2 comments »

G’day everyone, I really would like to thank everyone that posted a comment on my very first blog. I was really overwhelmed by the response of friendship and good hearted people that offered to help me if I needed it which was displayed on Lumberjocks community. I also wanted thank Svaabeck for helping me get my finger out. I am sorry it has taken so long to post another entry but I was taken in by woodworking, once I received my Incra gear and had set it up I got sucked into it. I unders...

Shop Stuff. #3: Now what?

02-06-2010 08:40 AM by rsmith71 | 7 comments »

I got the Table saw home and set it up. Everything looks good and dead-on. I’m looking around my garage a bit overwhelmed at where to start. You see, I decided a while back that when i got a saw I could really use that it would be time to set my space up as best I could. The makeshift tool stands and built-in workbench that came with the house has to go. No real storage and the bench is so far from level that anything round tries to roll off the front. So I have spent all the last we...

Works for me #1: Lumber Rack

02-06-2010 01:37 AM by Dave Owen | 8 comments »

I learned a long time ago that there are many ways to do just about anything imaginable. Some work better than others – but the main thing is that they do the job. I’ve decided to write a brief blog from time to time describing something that’s ‘worked for me’ in my shop. If you have a better idea – that’s great! If you can glean something from my idea that you can use, that’s great, too. I’ve decided to start with my lumber rack. ...
