A testament to finger joints

03-23-2008 02:23 AM by bryano | 17 comments »

Below are some pics of a tool box that I made a couple of years back. The wood is alder. This tool box was built to hold a large amount of electrical tools. One day when I was working on top of a high lift the box rolled off of the platform and droped about 10 feet onto a concreet floor. I expected to find it in pieces with 30 pounds of tools scattered about. What I found was an intact tool box with only a couple of cracks in the lid. Wow I thought, finger joints sure are strong. I sanded it ...

Tag Frid three legges stool #3: Tage Frid Three Legged Stool- Final Episode

09-08-2014 06:51 PM by cpine | 6 comments »

I complete the three legged stool. In this episode I glue up the seat and eventually the rest of the stool. I shape the legs, install the wedges in the mortise and tenons, sand and finish the stool. Thanks for the support and kind comments! This was a fun project and satisfying to have completed it. Best RegardsChris http://youtu.be/jhUJkumaA18

Summer Challenge 2007 - A Bridge Too Short #1: The Wood.....Being Green!

07-03-2007 09:04 PM by Bob Babcock | 2 comments »

I couldn’t resist doing a blog on this. I have no illusions of winning the contest given the competition and since the whole idea of LJ is to share I wanted to do just that. So…no cards close to the chest here…I’m showing my hand. Many of you have seen the bridge in our garden. I built it as a “temporary” solution 8 years ago from some leftover fence. Well it’s starting to show its age and I figure it will be great to kill two birds with one stone....

A rookie on the Path! #1: First Cradle

08-01-2013 01:50 AM by john111 | 2 comments »

I am building my first real piece of furniture out of ALL wood. I have made tables, beds and bakers racks, among other things, out of steel and wood with some glass. I have never used nice hardwood and made what I consider fine furniture. I have been working on this cradle for a long time. Not everyday and only a couple hours at a time. I have run into some problems a long the way and have chalked them up to just a learning curve issue. Most could have been avoided with better plannin...

wood joinery / garden contest entry #3: more turning in one day...

07-30-2007 05:44 AM by scottb | 7 comments »

To date, the most time I’ve spent at the lathe was 3 hours – and that was in a small classroom setting practing beads and coves – 1/2 the time playing and getting a feel for the tools, and the rest of the time trying to make deliberate shapes – while contantly dealing with catches. Today, I began working on my wood joinery/garden project. 1 hour of planning and cutting, 4 hours straight at the lathe! Also to date, the longest things I’ve turned came in around ...

"Journeys into the Joints of Joineries" by RusticWoodArt #2: "My Ghost of a Past"

06-10-2007 06:11 PM by frank | 1 comment »

My Ghost of a Past ....and so yes, for any and all that have been reading here and are waiting for more on the series “Journeys into the Joints of Wood Joineries” ....these articles, will be forthcoming from time to time. I am thinking of how to approach this subject, however I am no expert and not much of a technical writer and really dis-like writing on subjects that press me into the thinking confines of a box…. There was a time when I thought and lived in a box, I rec...

wood joinery / garden contest entry #2: another perspective

07-29-2007 05:12 AM by scottb | 0 comments »

It’s funny how this contest challenges you to think about wood in different ways. At first you think of how to replace nails with dowels or dovetails… then as designs get too complex, the mind broadens and figures out how to strip away the clutter and simplify the design or the plan. (I’ve always been good with simplification – resume’ as it were) It finally ocurred to me, just tonight, that the baskets my sister made (we have two, a wine basket and a stair ba...

vine trellis for neighbors

07-15-2014 03:29 AM by harum | 2 comments »

A few days ago, our neighbors asked to make a simple trellis for their passion flower vine which had collapsed under its weight. I’ve come up with what I think would fit their backyard. It is 6’6” tall, 38” wide. Today I finished cutting the parts with notches and dados for joinery and started gluing them with polyurethane glue. I want to use joinery and glue to avoid a lot of screws as fasteners because the lattice is made of thin stock to keep the whole thing ligh...
