Strip Canoe #1: Canoe

01-05-2012 08:47 AM by Philip "Pip" Storm | 26 comments »

With incouragement from other Lumberjocks I decided to blog on the progress of my canoe project. As you will see I have built the strongback, mounted the forms, and pretty much started stripping with pine. These pics and vids were done with my ipod so they’re not the best. Future pics will be done with my wifes Canon. I also want to include a video I posted on youtube about a week before posting my project on L.J. http://youtu.be/VglA5C-YP4w

"Art Box" Tutorial #3: Making the box

06-22-2009 09:19 PM by Andy | 25 comments »

Part 3updated 1/15/12 Regarding size:Size and proportions are important…to a point. We will be building a box that will start out at 11 1/8 W x 7 D x 4 1/2 H. (After shaping it will finish out at about 10 3/4’’ x 6 3/4’’ x 3 1/8 h depending on how much shaping is done.) I like the proportions of this box, they just look good to my eye. They are loosely based on the Golden Ratio which is a ratio of 1.618. There is much more to it than that, but simply put, here is how it works in rela...

Walnut Nightstand #1: Design and Milling the Wood

02-06-2015 09:37 PM by HappyHowie | 25 comments »

My daughter Jenny found a nightstand she liked on the web. She asked me if I could build one like it for her. Of course, I said yes. Then I began looking closer at its design. The challenge was with two design elements: (1) the lock miter joints for the case, and (2) the 45 degree angle for the legs. To address the first issue I would need to purchase a lock miter router bit and practice. I may need to build a tall router fence and jig to hold the vertical piece firmly against the fence....

Fireplace Mantle #1: Fireplace upgrade

03-22-2008 06:22 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 24 comments »

When my step daughter wanted to upgrade the fireplace mantle in her family room, we worked from a picture in a magazine she had, to come up with a design that was similar but would work in her room. We also added some crown molding and then repainted the room. Since all work was to be painted, we were able to fill screw holes and the saw kerfs we used to curve the crown molding. For filler we used Bondo, which while designed for the automotive industry, it is a great product for woodworker...

Kitchen Remodel #8: My first try at Corian

10-31-2008 10:37 PM by Karson | 24 comments »

Well this was my first try at assembling a Corian top for the base cabinets. I didn’t take any pictures of the actual gluing because I wasn’t sure of the amount of time I’d have as i was doing that process. Now that I have a better feel for the amount of time it takes, I’ll take some assembly pictures for the rest of the counter top. I started with the corner cabinet that is 24” X 24” and is where we currently have a microwave and toaster. New cabi...

I hate brass hinge screws! #1: I HATE EM!!!

02-10-2013 10:28 PM by DouginVa | 24 comments »

Why don’t the high end brass hinges for boxes, small cabinets, etc. come with screws? The hinges are great but this makes you go out and find the correct sized brass screw. And the screws are too damn soft and break off. I’m not trying to be a brute with them. I drill an appropriate sized pilot hole on a test piece of wood first to make sure the screw will glide in and out without breaking. I usually tap the hole with a steel screw to be on the safe side. And then I screw ...

First attempt at hand-cut dovetails.

12-10-2007 04:15 PM by itsme_timd | 24 comments »

Now I see why they have machines to do this… I think I went into this overconfident in my abilities. How hard could it be to cut out a simple notch in a board??? Fairly hard when your attitude exceeds your ability. First, I bought a ‘fancier’ saw than the basic dovetail saw and it just made things worse. Then – when that didn’t work I broke out the coping saw for some nice wavy cuts, I got out the chisel and tore it up real good, and finally… the D...
