Chair for the study desk unit for my son #1: finally started the last project

1811 days ago by Junji | 5 comments »

So this will be the last project of “study desk unit for my son”. I have been thinking about this ever since I started this while project, but the other day somebody here is LJ introduced me the projects of Nakashima, so I decided to go with that taste. (thank you Todd and one.hit.wonder) So here is the plan, kind of easy one as always. From woodworking I am not sure about the extra support legs, I know it will be much cooler without them, but I have to make it strong, s...

A LumberJock offered to me a most wonderful gift. Some time in his shop.

2086 days ago by Karson | 16 comments »

No it was not an offer of free wood. A posting on one of my blogs last night was a offer of most immense proportions. The offer was to allow me to use his shop and his time to work on a project for my wife. Here was his offer I immediately responded yes. The LumberJock was none other than our respected Lee Jesberger I mean here was a LumberJock that built 36 kitchens for one customer. Here was a LumberJock that built a $100,000 kitchen for another customer. He was allowing me to be h...

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

1071 days ago 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 ...

Dovetails #2: Another (Improved) Hacksaw Attempt

746 days ago by stroml | 2 comments »

Just thought I’d give y’all an update since my first disaster. I chose to forgo the dull chisel this time and just went with the hacksaw, vise, and pencil. This time was much better as far as fit, but still pretty fugly. I’d give it a 4.5/10 as opposed to a 1/10 I would have given my last adventure. Here are some action shots. Cutting new tails (notice the first ones I did on the opposite end). Now the pins with my new and improved #2 marking device. Why didn’...

River Red Gum Coffee Table #2: Levelling table top and making legs

264 days ago by icemanhank | 0 comments »

Hi again, It’s been a while as I have been away but here is my progress on the table. I have levelled the tabletop using a large belt sander and a straight edge, quite a time consuming job but I think the end result was worth the time. Then I hit it with an orbital sander using a few different grades of paper. Here is a pic after the first coat of Weatherfast Polyclear boat varnish, I decided not to fill the many holes as I want it to look as natural as possible. The varnis...

Kitchen Cabinets #2: Working on a countertop

2055 days ago by Dan Lyke | 1 comment »

This weekend’s goal is getting the cabinet beside the stove to at least have a usable counter-top. We picked up a beaten up 10’x2’ glued up piece of maple countertop off of Craigslist for $50, and that’s becoming the surface for beside the stoive, and the narrow counter for under the window, with a backsplash cut from the scraps. Today I took a deep breath and cut the first pieces. As I said, the counter-top was pretty beat up with a few gaps, so as I sanded...

Learning to Cut Dovetails by hand

1524 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...

Book Bench #1: The Project & The Legs (profiles)

1246 days ago by spunwood | 4 comments »

The Project In Mid/Late September a friend of ours mentioned to Stephanie that she was looking for something like a window seat with book shelves/storage…sans window. I jumped at the opportunity to try my hand. I had a plan by William Draper, a PA craftsman from an August 1996 edition of American Woodworker, pg. 32 (off of google). I had been really wanting to try my hand at the bench. I loved the profile, the simple style, and the chance to hone basic skills such as mortise &...

Tool thoughts #49: Greetings from beyond the edge of the world

286 days ago by NedB | 5 comments »

Hi gang, I know some of you have thought I fell over the edge of the world… Not at all. I simply haven’t had much blog time, or if I did have time, I didn’t have a lot of progress to report. That is what I’ve been ‘up to’, and who really needed to see yet another set of end grain boards in progress here on LJ’s? the LOML booked me into a show this coming weekend, and I’ve been out in the shop going through all of the necessary ...
