I tried it on a mock up and it worked pretty good. I wanted to get some thoughts from my fellow lumberjocks. Here is a pic of the tongue and groove cut ou...

Building a quick cheap and easy steam box

I needed a steam box to steam bend a walnut handle. The last time I, steam bent a handle I just threw it in a contractor bag and pumped it full of steam. This worked OK but by the end of the steaming process the bag had started to melt and it turned into a bit of a mess. This time I decided to build a proper steam box, but lost interest because I hate shop projects, I’d rather be building furniture. Instead, I built a down and dirty steam box. If you would like the deep down detai...

Life happenings #1: What a load

08-04-2016 02:02 PM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

Making use of things other people have no use for. There is a sawmill about an hour away from me. It is run by some Mennonites and they work hard making harvesting and milling logs into what we are all here for. Beautiful boards and timbers with which we use to make our projects. But there is a lot of the tree that is just not useful for sale for this purpose. What to do with the waste? Well in this instance, I heat my home with it. All the slab wood and off cuts are offered up for s...

Attaching the Legs & Playing with Milk Paint

06-29-2016 11:14 AM by Tooch | 4 comments »

Before attaching the legs, I had a lot of work to do to prep the table top for finishing. Even though it was on the underside, I still wanted to eliminate all the dried glue, so I busted out the card scraper and got to work. Before: After: That’s a lot of chips! Last thing was to cut the top to final length, which I side using a Craftsmen circular saw. Although it was really getting bogged down on the 8/4” oak, it managed to get the job done.
