Building for the wife. A project that started with my great great grandmother’s traditional sideboard. Though not particularly valuable, this maple buffet cabinet dates as far back as the civil war era. It was produced in a shop that probably sold a good number of them. The front and sides were well finished, the back, bottom, and inside of the cupboard were rather course in appearance. The cabinet was efficiently assembled and the construction did not rely on glue. I do not know w...
Ok, hitched a ride to WalMart and bought some Lag screws, and some washers….$2.08 counting tax. Borrowed two of my son’s drills. Also used one of mine. Pilot holes for the lags to go into. Son has an electric impact driver. Added a long extension, and drove the lags home. had to lay ON the floor for this little job.. Dug around through the scrap piles….found some 5/4 pine….way too long and a bit too wide…we have ways of dealing with that… ...
Went to a Tractor Fest over the weekend. Amongst all the “goodies” I brought home, was a $10 Craftsman 7” wood working vise. Figured I could make some use out of it. The end of my bench is just about where all the “action” takes place, anyway. Not too often it is even cleared off.. Sooo, dug out some toys, and a big clamp. On the end of the bench, it is just a 2×4 as an End cap. It is also where the legs have a few bolts. Had to sit the...

I recently discovered the Lumberjocks Forum and signed up but then spent the last couple of weeks going through all the previous entries to see just what the forum was all about… Wow! There is a considerable amount of talent floating around this place and a whole lot of good (free) information being shared. I hope that I can give back as much as I expect to be getting from all of you!Last summer I was attending a local Farmer’s Market, selling my wood products and making new frien...
just a quick little blog here… Had some leftovers from a couple projects. Had a notched “keeper from a project that got side-lined somewhere down the line….Maybe spend a little time today. Had some 1×4 Oak blanks….well one was, the other was a might bigger. Used the bandsaw to cut them to almost the same size, including an angle cut on the end. Clamped them up and a jack plane to make sure that they did indeed match each other. Set out the notched keeper ...
