I stumbled into woodworking when challenged to prove my statement, “I could do that” uttered on many occasions regarding Pinterest posts of DIY projects. My first creation was a table cobbled together with cieling fan blades, 2×4’s and a table base using a bare minimum of tools. Several months later, I’ve acquired a few tools and now enjoy my newfound passion for DIY woodworking and upcycling in a respectably equipped workshop (which I love adding to and organizin...

Shopmade Luthier Tools #1: Series Intro

01-02-2017 03:44 PM by Dave Rutan | 15 comments »

I’m starting to gather together and make a few tools that will be dedicated to lutherie, that is, the building and repair of stringed instruments which are usually made of wood. Having a dedicated lutherie kit will just make my life easier than walking back and forth in the shop grabbing the needed tool. Many of these will likely end up in a stand, box, or drawer for easy access while doing repairs. From the sound of things, learning to re-hair violin bows and the like is a good...

Getting Started

12-23-2014 03:39 PM by averagedadworkshop | 3 comments »

So, this is an introduction to Jason. I am 27 years old and have always been active with some sort of project or another. My first experience with woodworking was in middle school shop class and carried all the way through high school where I spent as much time as I could in the wood shop. After high school the lack of access to a shop led me away from doing anything with woodworking and really any sort of projects at all. Then I got married and moved into my own house and the projects ...

Making progress - Making connections

08-06-2013 07:50 AM by JustaLilJoinery | 4 comments »

Hi all, I’m Jyl.I’m obviously new here and appreciate anyone who decides it is worthy of your time to read.I am a lover of wood, building, being creative and all things small. I came back to creating with wood (and other materials) because of a health issue. I’ve found that many other hobby-workers have also had this experience so you might notice that I mention it here and there. I will certainly try to not come off as a whiner but please understand as you get to know ...

Yo Joe! #1: Introduction

01-26-2010 05:47 AM by Dukegijoe | 13 comments »

Well, I figured my first blog should be an introduction. I found Lumberjocks through the Wood Whisperer site. For the last couple of weeks I would check the site at work and home, starting to build what I can only now call an addiction. I finally signed-up because I felt that if I was going to look, I should at least be able to contribute. a single paragraph. I am a twice deployed Army Veteran, who was a tank platoon leader the first tour (in 03) and the division’s commo officer for ...

More of a journal than a blog, I'd say. Alternately, introductions are annoying

06-09-2009 07:38 AM by PatrickOOOMazing | 5 comments »

I have heard that there are people of whom all manner of things will go awry for, chances are I have met plenty of them, of which none have stopped to share their story. I would suggest too that I am one of these people. At 23, I have experienced a significant amount of strife (if for a moment I may permit myself to play a martyr, more strife than you), all of which has led me here. I don’t particularly wish to start this off with such an ominous tone, however I have long since come ...
