On different types of Carpentry or How I learned to stop worrying, and hit things with hammers

07-04-2017 09:39 PM by MDots | 2 comments »

When I was a kid, I thought that “carpenter” just meant someone who works with wood. A general term, you know? I always thought of my grandfather as a “carpenter”, since he had a little shop in a garage with a saw and a belt sander, and would help me build my pinewood derby cars. We built other things, and did a lot of simple repairs around the house. He was a child of the Depression, and had an attitude of “Why pay someone to do something you can do yourself?...

I am starting over from Scratch!

04-02-2017 12:12 AM by BigDClampit | 9 comments »

New Member Introduction Hello fellow lovers of lumber and woodworking. I had a shop in my large basement 20 years ago. Due to a move to a smaller space and a job change I gave it up and sold all my woodworking tools (table saw, bandsaw, router table, jointer-planer, sander to mention some of the larger ones) I also had a 19 foot long hardwood workbench. But alas the years ticked on and now I have large footprint for a workshop. I dont need anything fancy but would like… ̵...

Hello Lumberjocks

03-31-2017 05:12 PM by ofthemound | 6 comments »

Hello Lumberjocks my name is Shane and I live in Upstate NY. I was born and raised in the North Country, but have moved around a bit. Finally back home and looking to build my woodworking experience through different means from cabinetmaking, trim carpentry and framing. A wise man told me that regardless of what my goals were for carpentry it isn’t useless gaining experience in different forms. That the culmination of my experience will make me a knowledgable and well-rounded tradesman....

Blog Introduction

My name is Kirk Lavender. I live in a little hamlet called “Mulino” that is located about 30 miles south of Portland Oregon. I’ve lived here for 26 years and built my own wood shop in the summer of 96’ on our little 2 acre ranch. The original farm house was built in 1886 and was on the old stage coach line from Oregon city south to Molalla. Its a very peaceful setting out here surrounded by larger 20-40 acre farms that are mostly used for pasture and hay fields. i a...

This is Me

06-06-2016 02:50 PM by MarkStewart | 4 comments »

Just thought I should take a moment to introduce myself here before getting too far into sharing projects. I’m joining LJs as a way to supplement my self-teaching. I’ve been interested in woodworking for a long time now, but I just gained my own shop back in August of last year when my wife and I left the apartment life behind. My shop is in half of a 2 car garage, and is mostly populated with craigslist specials. I really enjoy turning, but currently I have been working ...

Intro #1: In the beginning...Hi everyone

04-17-2015 03:26 AM by HisStoryofWood | 3 comments »

HI EVERYONE! Like many, I came here for a resource of knowledge, inspiration, and entertainment. I have always enjoyed doing home projects, more specifically working with wood. If the project name is tiling, I despise you. Growing up it started with bird houses, pinewood derby, and shop class. Now an adult with young children, my time is their time and projects revolve around them or the house. I started with a simple bed and shelves and onto a 12’ tabletop. I now want to get ...

Beginning #1: Intro

11-03-2014 03:06 PM by Jeff Mazur | 4 comments »

Call me Dreek (a nickname given to me by my late brother; a name which I have not heard spoken aloud in probably 15 or 20 years.) I’m a semi-old guy who’s just getting started in woodworking. After playing around with some brain-dead simple power-tool projects that served a purpose (moldings, a shop-built air cleaner) I’ve decided that hand work will be my thing. This is a hobby, there is no hurry, I don’t like loud machines or dust, and I especially don’t l...

Intro & Shop Tour

03-15-2014 11:56 AM by Chris McDowell | 6 comments »

I have posted 8 videos on YouTube thus far and have never introduced myself. I enjoy watching other woodworkers introduction and shop tour videos, so I thought I might as well do one and get it over with. I give a few facts about myself in my home page here on Lumberjocks, but I go into a little more depth in the video. Watch the video here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZIV_OyTaCo
