1520 days ago by NBeener | 6 comments »

I found this article, the other day, and keep coming back to it—both literally and in my mind. Figured I’d share it. I plan to keep all of this in mind as I begin my 2nd night stand…. Maybe others have similar suggestions for increasing precision…. — How to get Precisionby Bob Smalser — Make a story stick for each project. Record the measurements of L, W, H and internals on one, unchanging stick. Your project stock should be kept on a...

This is a piece I plan to build over the next few months to use as a show piece in craft fairs and possibly to put in a gallery. I have lots of connections in the art world so hopefully I can find a home for it.

Building a roubo workbench in my apartment #1: Making the top

1528 days ago by brklnguy | 26 comments »

I never want to hear anyone complain about their shop… anything has to be better than a tiny living room in a 400sqft apartment. This is my first project with hand tools. I worked as a cabinetmaker for 6 years, and then moved to NYC 3 years ago and changed careers. I’ve been wanting to get back into building furniture, and after a few months of reading everything Chris Schwartz has written and pretty much every other hand tool blog on the internet, I feel like I know everything...

Learning to Cut Dovetails by hand

1530 days ago by scottwpaul02 | 1 comment »

Hey all, First of all I wanted to thank all of you guys and gals that have commented and given me hints or inspiration on my projects. I have loved woodworking my entire life, but only recently have I started to pursue it more diligently. My first goal was to learn how to cut dovetails by hand. I know it is a random goal, but I figured that the tools involved to get started…and the skill required would give me a good foundation or starting block to other things. So my first sto...

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

1532 days ago 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 Yankee Blanket Chest #3: My first Mortise & Tenon!

1534 days ago by HungryTermite | 8 comments »

Well, after taking all my rough cut boards and ripping them to final width and crosscutting them to final length on the tablesaw, and spending what seemed like hours (because it probably was) laying out all the cuts on all the pieces … I fired up my new mortising router jig … And cut my first mortises in all the stiles of the chest! I then went over to the tablesaw with a Dado head and started to mill my 1st tenons and all the grooves for the solid panels: Things went ...
