Cheap wood 101

10-10-2016 02:27 PM by Fatherlewis | 5 comments »

Hi fellow LJs. I must say that in my first couple of months here, I have learned a lot. This place is a wealth of knowledge and good ideas, and maybe some not too good ideas. But hey, we are all adults here, and we share our triumphs and defeats, good ideas and bad(if there really is such a thing), as well as good deals, trade secrets, and all other things woodworking. So I found a steal of a deal on the hardwood rough sawn lumber over the weekend. My excitement poured over on the insid...

First blog post – ever….anywhere….so, please: have mercy, show leniency, and bear over with me… I mean well… This short blog post is about a small restauration project; in this case me trying to fix something into its former glory of which I know very little. First off I should give credit where credit is due. If it hadn’t been for my encounter with Lumberjocks very own Mafe and my subsequent meeting with him at his workshop less than two weeks later, th...

Making an Aluminum, LDPE, and Oak Mallet

This mallet was fun to build! It was 3 completely different processes to make each part of it. This was also my first time working with plastic (LDPE) as a medium. I have absolutely no practical use for this thing… I just thought about it one day and it sounded like fun to make! View on YouTube

Drawer runners

08-20-2016 01:11 AM by Moosesman | 6 comments »

Im making a dresser and don’t want to buy cheap drawer slides and can’t afford the expensive ones. I am a flooring installer and have some oak hardwood flooring scraps. I want to cut out the tongue and groove and use it as the guides for the drawers. They would be screwed into the case sides and then glued into dados on drawers. 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...

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.

If you would like the deep down detai...

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...
