Shop Doings #1: How many clamps?

02-27-2012 12:46 AM by SalvageCraft | 20 comments »

I started on a small project tonight. I guess I got a little carried away with the clamps. Somewhere after the first ten, I just got curious to see how many more would fit. The really disturbing part is, I’ve forgotten what I was even making, and I can’t see through the tangle of clamps well enough to make any guesses! So, off to hang out on LJs…

First dovetail ever!

03-09-2012 07:34 PM by Uffe | 13 comments »

Took a woodworking class last fall (for the first time since I was in high school). That was A LOT of fun – I should have done it long ago. I made this simple shelf (not finished in the picture) using a dovetail joint for the top shelf and a dadoed joint for the shelf underneath. (The lower shelf is not seen in the picture, the only thing you can see are the plugs for the screws, not yet trimmed flush.) This is my first ever dovetail joint, but I have to admit I had to practice thre...

Craftsman built-ins #1: Window seat - stereo cabinet #1

11-24-2012 09:40 PM by mountainaxe | 0 comments »

Four years after major home renovation work, I’ve decided to tackle the living room space in our 1943 ranch. The house has an interesting feature…the interior walls were not studded/plastered; instead, the exterior brick was simply stuccoed on the interior…which makes for awkward built-in attachment. My larger goal is to work my way around the room installing built-ins in a craftsman like style. The individual projects I’ll address in this blog will include: 1. ...

QUOINS AS CLAMPS

10-08-2010 01:38 PM by EMVarona | 5 comments »

Printing used to be one of my hobbies. I have an antique hand operated platen press (letterpress) complete with metal types (fonts) and accessories. I have not done much letterpress printing since the desk top computer came in. In letterpress printing, the metal types are assembled in words and sentences and clamped down in a metal frame. The devices used to clamp are called quoins. Very often ideas pop-up from the most unlikely places. The quoin is thought of as a device related to pri...

Solid Wood Door glue-ups / Tips and Techniques

02-11-2010 03:15 AM 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”...

Craftsman Style Kitchen Cabinets #2: Not Even Cabinets Yet

11-07-2012 11:17 PM by Douglas | 1 comment »

With the windows in an awesome state, it was time to re-arrange some things in the kitchen. There’s a small bedroom off the kitchen, who’s door went right into the kitchen, right next to the sink—a bad place for it. I decided to move that doorway around the corner, pointing towards the rear of the house, making it more private and no longer interfering with the main kitchen area. Luckily, the wall where I wanted to put the door had originally been an exterior window, and the...
