Cherry platform bed #3: Progressing nicely.

1340 days ago by TheBarrister | 1 comment »

Leg glue up. Yes, those are some nice burns on the wood. Lumber cut to size. My first mortise and tenon. Ever. Headboard minus panels, dry fit. Tuning the slot for a panel. Drilling (Forstnering?) another mortise. This is my method for inserting the nut for the bed bolt. I got the idea from a magazine, but this method set me back some hours. I would probably just use a barrel nut next time. Still, it looks pretty good. Today, my orbital sa...

Maybe the beginning of a larger project #1: Figuring out angles

428 days ago by Mark Shymanski | 9 comments »

How’s that for a wishy washy title:-) ? I’ve been toying with the idea of building myself a small sailboat so the kids and I can putter about and maybe have some fun fishing from it. I am also hoping we can have fun putting it together so I don’t want to get too ambitious right out of the gate. This weekend I find myself with a bit of time on my hands so I thought I’d experiment with some of the methods folks have described about making a mast. Now before all ...

Easy made toolboxes from "leftovers"

933 days ago by theSawdustSurfer | 2 comments »

I really like projects when i can go down to the shop and use what i already have without going to the store and buy “the optimal” wood for “the perfect” solution. It started with purely practical reasons i have a small shop with almost no storage space and before i can buy more wood i have to get rid of the old. therefor i started doing projects with scrap pieces. its fun, you have to let the wood define the project, so to speak. and if you are a novice like...

First Handcut Dovetails - PFW

1637 days ago by jcontract | 10 comments »

A good friend (and fellow Lumberjock member JTASH) spent a fantastic weekend at the Philadelphia Furniture Workshop in a handcut dovetails class. Now, JTASH has had some experience to this point in assembling actual projects with handcut dovetail joints. Me? I did a bunch of practice in sawing ‘to the line’ in preparation for the class, and even tried a crude attempt at assembling a test dovetail. The results were miserable and I would not post. Here is my conclusion after taki...

The old time woodshop journals #44: Back to the bench!

480 days ago by jjw5858 | 3 comments »

Since taking such an extended time learning many aspects of carving spoons from green timber, I began to miss the other parts of working wood. I missed the use of my old Stanleys, Disstons, and Millers Falls! Yeah….I am a hand tool galoot for sure….GALOOTS UNITE!...LOL. Of course while just starting to excel at carving, understanding the grips and sculpture of spoon making, it was easy to have a worry that my other skills were getting some rust as much as the tools began too!.....

Tool Box #2: case work

20 days ago by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, spent a bit of time getting the case put together. Things just seem to roost on my benchtop. Setting the panels upside down on an almost flat benchtop. Clamp an end panel to the front/back panel. The longer panels have a series of counter-bored screw holes, about seven per corner. Clamp a corner together, add a few screws, move the clamp a bit to uncover the one or two that are hiding under them. Work my way around, by adding the other end panel, rotate the three piece set aro...

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

424 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 ...
