Project Ideas, Hmm... #6: They've rearranged the office

08-04-2016 08:07 PM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

A while ago I made a customized shelf/desk for my church’s office, and some time later I made this spine desk which is a knock off of a commercially available one. (You can click on the photos below to see the project page for each one.) But now they’ve rearranged the office and instead of the spine desk, that person wants a booster desk to go on her desktop. Plus the person I made the shelf/desk for wants something else as well. I don’t mind the changing needs i...

Workshop 2016 #2: Christmas blessings.

01-11-2016 12:59 AM by Ty Sullivan | 4 comments »

Christmas 2015 was one that held many changes for me and inherently for my woodworking too. In the past my family has been pretty diligent in purchasing tools for me of all sorts and has filled in the gaps of those items that are required for pushing my skills upwards. However, the larger sized powertools have always been slightly out of reach for me by way of monetary limitations or just that my family didn’t feel comfortable making a purchase that requires a lot of knowledge. I.E. h...

Beginners Start Here!!! #2: Cutting/Milling Tools For Beginners On A Low Budget

09-08-2015 01:47 AM by TObenhuber | 1 comment »

In my last Blog post about Bare Essential Woodworking I described the basic overview of rough cost to get into this hobby for a future woodworker on a Low Budget. Using those steps you should be off to a good start. If you have bought something to cut and cut with you are probably starting to feel like this. Credit to Nick Offerman and his inspirational wood shop. I am going to skip by the Idea/Plan phase of a project. The inspiration for that was well described in the last post but ...

It Starts With a Workbench #3: Project: Get this thing off the ground

06-29-2015 11:43 PM by DocTux | 1 comment »

It seemed so simple when I thought about it, a workbench seemed like the perfect place to start my woodworking hobby, then from there I can easily figure out what tools I need to complete the job. As it turns out, you can’t exactly start with just a workbench. You need to get off the ground before you can get your hobby off the ground. First I really fussed over what type of bench I wanted to make. Well, that wasn’t very fruitful. I WANTED to make a bench that was 92” lon...

Woodshop/Garage Build #1: Phase 1 - clearing lot

04-13-2015 12:44 AM by BMichs75 | 1 comment »

LJ’s,So I have been planning this shop/garage build since my wife and I purchased our first house last summer. I have been out of woodworking since then and, as my wife would attest, I have been really cranky not being able to make sawdust. The long winter here in Ohio has really taken its toll on me but has given me time to research a lot for the upcoming build. I have a background in residential construction when I was in high school (10 yrs ago) and have kept in touch with my old bos...

The Saw #1: The Beginning

02-24-2015 11:17 PM by Mike C. | 4 comments »

Starting from complete scratch sounds like a daunting task as it will be full of mistakes. After much research, I decided on the Ridgid r4512 table saw to be my first. The first mistake I made was hurting my lower back getting this 268 pound monster in my VW hatchback. Once I got home, the question remained in my mind, “how am I going to get it out by myself?” Cut it out, thats what I did. After about an hour, it was out and my back was sore, but I was determined. The ta...

The "Shed" #2: Dirtwork....augh.

10-26-2014 04:39 AM by Ty Sullivan | 1 comment »

After a few weeks of essentially doing nothing but research (including bugging my master electrician father inlaw) about how to NOT metaphorically shoot myself in the foot I finally broke ground on the electrical supply to the new shed. Graciously my father offered his tiller and his own back to help me get the trench dug and the 40 feet of main line put into it’s permanent location in just under four hours…no idea how long it would have taken without the now 24 year old tiller t...

New to Lumberjocks. Wanting to learn how to work with wood and make useful things or at least something that looks cool. I have a mechanical design and drafting background and I usually use 3D solid modeling software to make models for use in creating drawing packages. What can I expect from this site?
