I’m sure this qualifies as a woodworking project as cardboard is made from wood products is it not.This is really worth a look

bowed table top

12-18-2013 03:06 PM by brucebaird1 | 3 comments »

I am making a small (36”x32”) art table for a young grandchild. I bought kiln and air dried oak and used biscuit joinery to make the table top. It was dead flat after joining and glue up and remained dead flat until yesterday when I brushed a coat of primer in preparation of painting a gloss acrylic finish. This morning I put 2 coats of the gloss paint on the top and tonight when I was going to put the finish coat on I noticed that the top has bowed significantly (1/2 to 3/4 inch)...

Holtzapffel Workbench #3: Bench top and base come together forever

06-28-2009 10:01 PM by cylis007 | 5 comments »

It has been some time since I have updated my blog on my progress. The bench is coming along nicely. I began working on the table top and am learning a lot as I progress. The top requires a lot of work. I don’t see myself building another bench for a long time. I am glad that I thought about what I would need before ever beginning. Since I started my bench, I have seen other’s benches on this site that look great. It has made me think about a wish list for the next bench,...

The trouble with Yew

02-12-2010 03:10 AM by JuniorJoiner | 11 comments »

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 ...

Desk Build #1: Layout & Milling Materials

08-05-2010 02:14 PM by Huckleberry | 3 comments »

I know this is a little out of order but I needed to get started on these desks ahead of the garbage can containers. What is great about these desks is that we will be using different kinds of joinery. We’ll be laminating the legs, pocket hole joinery for the aprons and top. Plus there will be some edge banding happening too. You will also see how I build my drawer boxes and the material that I use for this in future episodes. Don’t forget to sign up for Huck’s (hucksdi...

1972 Craftsman project, Opinions Welcome #12: Living with old tools

05-12-2011 12:05 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Late last year, before I put the saw away for the winter, a piece of the casting on the tablesaw broke. It was causing some vibration and the blade to move side to side a bit when adjusting height. Not good in conjunction with zero clearance inserts. Anyway, it is getting warm again and time to get the saw ready for what I hope will be a productive summer. The “key” as I am calling it had to be fixed. There are 2 parts that mount on a shaft and are keyed together you can see ...

Lamps for the living room #1: Decent Start

03-22-2013 01:27 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 5 comments »

I have been building some lamps for the Living room. I discovered an issue. My small miter saw used to be as accurate as anything else I could manage. I didn’t realize that the fence had warped until I started assembling. My 45 angles wer more like 45.75. It threw a wrench in things and gave me a little firewood but I recovered most of the cuts. I’m ready to move on. I was able to straigten the fence on the small saw but now I’m marking my cuts and disregardng the presets...

Ive had an experience here at lumber jocks that has caused me to think on this topic today. early this morning i awoke was around 4am…so i went to read my email and catch up with that. I had a private message sent to me, it was entitled apology. This of coarse caught my attention, so i opened it to read and by the time i was done i felt several emotions…one of them was ashamed, the reason being is as i have gone through my life, being a good friend or as we call them here a g...

My First Real Attempt at a project. A shaker end Table #4: The Table Tops!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

12-09-2010 04:05 AM by therookie | 6 comments »

This is the first of the two table tops that I have to do. I used a tounge and grove joint and have the first one in the clamps. The first table top. The next table top layed out to show joints. The toungs on the center board. I thought it would look better if the center board had the tounges only. The grove of the left table edges. The right is the exact same thing, just with it on the other side.
