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
After a month of development based on the feedback I got here, I finally managed to release Carpenter Pro, this time, it calculates how many plywood sheets are needed to finish your project and get detailed cutlist diagram for each stock sheet needed. It allows you to specify the dimensions & grain direction for your stock sheets material, specify the dimensions and the required grain direction for each part you need to cut for your project, and set the kerf amount, then watch this app ge...
Quick post here – 0400 comes awfully early… Here is my rough drawing of how I will lay out my shop. NOTES: ShopVac will be under the bench ShopSmith is questionable at this point, but it’s the only jointer I have right now, so it stays for now Brown rectangles with thick black border are workbenches Restricted area is immovable, lost space The purple area is the lazy susan that will hold the 4 tools as noted If you’ve got ideas, recommendations or ...
I recently posted a project called “Milk Bottle Tops & Scrap Wood”, http://lumberjocks.com/projects/57351 There was some interest in the concept & some of you requested a blog on how they were done.So I thought I should get on with it before I forgot the whole process. LOLThe whole idea started from a need to cut down on all the scrap pieces of wood and composite material lying around in the shed.We all have those bits that we won’t throw out. They will come in ha...

Take two speaker boxes that are worse for wear, and kind of water logged. Then say, “heck they aren’t exactly cheap speakers either. ummmmmmm” Mission speakers. Remove guts of both speakers. Put in plasted container and seal. Turn round and now say… “ummm now what?... followed by a gulp, ”...and he wants two… hmmmm “ Okay we first made a router jig so we can do some nice daedo to fit the speakers into and then finish the cross cut tab...
Have completed my experimentation with finishing, it is time to finalize the table top. I cut the frame pieces for the table top from the same stock I used for the legs and sides. This turned out to make the table top glue up a little more complicated because I ended trying to place a 3/4” panel in a frame made of 15/16” thick stock. Note that I cut the long members a little wider than the short members so that I can trim them for a final fit around the panel (I will expl...

Hi folks,Been trying to make progress in the shop every weekend. I have no evenings available during the week due to my work schedule and long commute. So, weekends are made for woodworking, or in my case, for getting ready to do woodworking. So far, progress has been good and steady until last weekend. Saturday was one of those days where I needed to really be a husband and give some focus to my wife and so I did. We had a nice time on Saturday and I even persuaded my beautiful wife to ac...
Ripping stock to size. I really don’t know why I was staying so far from the line. Not that it matters. Apparently my sawing has been getting better. I stayed away from the line to allow for wandering of the saw blade, but it tracked so straight that I think I can stick right next to the line next time. Jointing sawn edges. While I know that the shavings aren’t what is important, seeing the difference in the shavings of my jointer plane(on top), and my fore plane(on ...
