Wedding Clock #2: Wedding Clock, The Start & Story

04-22-2011 09:39 PM by kenn | 6 comments »

Sorry Lumberjocks, this was intended to be part one. I’ve got it straight from here on. My eldest daughter is getting married! They got engaged Summer, 2010 and the wedding is planned for Sept. 17, 2011. I told them I’d like to make them something special as a wedding from my wife and me. This is what we all agreed would be a great gift. Never mind that I haven’t done anything in Arts & Crafts Style and that this is my reference, Bruce Johnson’s book on The ...

Picture frame profiles

04-13-2011 05:53 AM by devann | 7 comments »

I was checking out some picture frames that spunwood has on the site and ask to see some profiles. My request was granted so now it’s my turn. I went out to the shop and took these pictures. Hope that this helps those of us that don’t have molding cutters see another way to do it. This one is weathered cedar and a piece of redwood cut with a cove bit on the routertable and a piece of longleaf pine with a rabbet cut making the inside of the frame. Here I used ipe with sedona ...

Questions on milling my own lumber

04-10-2011 11:39 PM by Alan Hart | 3 comments »

Hello fellow LJ’s I have a woods by my house that I can go into any time I want, it’s my brothers. There are a few downed trees and some large branches from a couple of huge trees that came down last year in a big storm. I know the tree trunks can be turned into lumber but I have heard that the large branches can’t be milled. I’ve been told it’s because they will twist once they are cut. Is this true? Can I mill then in 8’ or smaller lengths without a pr...

Just started cutting into this burl. Incredible! I am not sure if I am going to cut table slabs or block it up for turners. Time will tell. Enjoy! I need to ask a favor of my friends here. Would you go to Face Book and do a search for “Oregon Burls” and Become my friend there. It would help lots. ThanksGregwww.OregonBurls.com PS Check out my new Website!!!

Lessons in barnboard

04-03-2011 08:48 AM by superstretch | 4 comments »

Today I had a unique experience that really got me doing something I’ve wanted to for a long time. Some background: So I have a ~150-180 year old outhouse that the previous owner moved off its old foundation and next to the pool, where it now serves as a filter/pump house. One side of the roof was cedar shingles and the other was metal sheeting (think refugee camp and you get the picture). During one of our windstorms, which the area is notorious for, the metal sheeting peeled back l...

Projects #1: First Cutting Board Project

04-01-2011 10:31 PM by smitty22 | 5 comments »

Well, like most of my projects, there’s a bit of a twisted tale behind this one, so follow along and I’ll spin it for you: A friend (I think) for whom I repaired a broken cutting board a while back donated a salvaged commercial board of solid edge-grain hard maple. Asked him if he wanted it repaired and I was grateful when he said, “No, just use the wood for something interesting.” My first thought was that the maple would make very nice glue-up for vise jaws for my new woodworking b...

a small writing desk start to finish #3: learning to cut half-blind dovetails and a wood gloat

04-01-2011 06:14 AM by drewnahant | 3 comments »

I started practicing through dovetails a couple weeks ago, since I had never even attempted hand cutting before, they are still a bit rough, but I realized that for this project I will need half blind dovetais, since with the curved front I will not be able to make a drawer box with a seperate face, and I really wouldnt want to do that for furniture anyway, it’s just what ive done in the past for cabinets. So tonight I cut my first practice set of half blind dovetails. here’s a ...

Walnut and Oak Entrance Shelf #1: Basic construction

03-30-2011 10:39 PM by superstretch | 6 comments »

Its been a while since I’ve posted anything project-related. My time has been consumed with work-work and not wood work. So my wife has this table which she moved into the house when we got married. I can’t stand the thing and it is constantly being bumped, knocked over, and hit into the wall. Its ugly, veneered, and flimsy so I’ve tried everything short of burning it to get it out of there. Finally my wife told me to make something to replace it or get lost. My...
