Cedar Train Table #1: Praticing Dovetails

10-25-2009 01:59 AM by Bahremu | 3 comments »

Last year i built a simple train table for my children. It’s functional and they love it. This year my youngest son’s pre-school is soliciting donations for their annual fundraising auction. I will donate a newly made train table. This time more nicely built one. As lots of lumberjocks have built a train table for their children and/or grandchildren, we all know it’s a flat top with an apron that provides a small lip. I’ve decided that this project will be wher...

Exercises in Artisanship #30: The Woodrights Galoot library Part 1

10-18-2012 11:12 PM by jjw5858 | 7 comments »

My beginning library of Woodright Shop DVD’s has grown rather quickly and an idea was sparked by the pile of 5 cases with the sixth soon on it’s way. I at first was excited to purchase some poplar for this project instead of the ole faithful pine…but todays prices jarred my wallet full of common sense…lol. If your not selling these projects friends this stuff can get costly so pine it is! So here is the fun idea for these next few installments of Exercises in Artisanship…...

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

07-01-2013 03:50 AM 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 ...

Adirondack Chairs #1: Halfway into the White Oak version

09-17-2013 12:16 AM by Jacob C. Heffelfinger | 1 comment »

This is the first entry in this series, but I’m already halfway into the White Oak version of my Rockler Adirondack chair. I’m also building a Western Red Cedar version, but haven’t started dimensioning the boards yet. I’m starting the blog at this point in the project, because 1. I wasn’t a member of LJ before starting the project and 2. I need to get my thoughts down about what I’ve learned so far, because this is really my first TRUE hardwood project...

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

07-04-2013 03:47 PM 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 ...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #8: Install the tail vise, done with the top

03-17-2015 12:43 AM by ic3ss | 2 comments »

Yesterday I took the end cap and cut out two mortises first using a spade bit and then chiseling it square. I had to trim the tenons down a bit to fit in, and when I was squaring the small mortise, part of the end grain wall broke away leaving me with a big gap. I really didn’t want to make another end cap and do all of this work again, so I think I’m going to go with it for now. If I decide later I can’t live with it, I can just take it off and make another o...

10 Steps to Getting Started in Traditional Woodworking with Hand Tools #4: |Step 3| Learn how to Refurbish, Tune, & Sharpen Tools

04-15-2014 03:18 PM by WoodAndShop | 2 comments »

My wife loves to say, “hun, I think you love restoring hand tools almost as much as woodworking!” I think she’s right. There’s something magical about taking an antique (and very well built) woodworking hand tool and bringing it back to working order. Removing the rust, tuning up the parts, and sharpening the blade gives a feeling of satisfaction; especially when seeing the finished result. I get a feeling of a connection with the past, with my ancestors, with a time when things were made ...

Woodworking book: Woodwork Joints

12-27-2008 10:40 PM by Praki | 5 comments »

There are quite a few internet resources for old books on woodworking. I love reading them as they have all sorts of wonderful tips. I came across one such book, quite by accident, on scribd.com. It is probably available in other places as well. http://www.scribd.com/doc/2378054/Woodwork-JointsHow-they-are-Set-Out-How-Made-and-Where-Used-by-Fairham-William I leafed through it (virtually of course, lol) and found a gem right away. The author makes a point about shooting boards and says t...

Pie Safe #4: More Progress

01-26-2013 04:09 PM by scamp238 | 0 comments »

I have been busy working and my daughter has ben busy with school, so we haven’t had much time to spend on this. We have made some progress though. A little each week. She has cut and shapeed the handles with the router. Finished all the doors. She sprayed the whole thing down with strong tea to add tannins to the pine. We used this ammonia. We sealed it in the shower with the ammoina overnight. We pulled it out and looked at it. I was pleased. ...
