Thorsen House Cabinet #1: Project Overview

11-24-2014 01:51 PM by EläväPuu | 2 comments »

Hello everybody! </drnick> This is my opening post on Lumberjocks with a new project which I have seen done several times previously. I can squarely lay the blame for this one on Joe McGlynn, whose own derivation of the Thorsen House dining room cabinet planted the seed for my own attempt. I’m aiming to document my thought processes and decision-making through this blog, so hopefully it should bring something new to the table other than snapshots of work in progress. As of writing...

Ceiling Hung, Folding Sheet Storage Rack #6: It's up, the rack is hanging and Just About Done!!!

11-17-2014 03:15 AM by Dirk Van Essendelft | 0 comments »

All I have to say is that the rack is up and it is going to create a TON of free space, especially that wall! I am going to be able to get a lathe in there some day instead of having a mess of sheet goods! I added extra storage above the rack too. I have a place to sticker lumber now! Please take a look and leave your comments to let me know what you think!

How to save $100 on a new Band Saw

11-15-2014 05:44 AM by OldWrangler | 12 comments »

After waiting 3 weeks my band saw finally came in. I have been wanting to get a new band saw to replace my 25 y/o Rockwell 14. This has been a really good machine for a long time but it is worn out and I keep having to buy parts and up grades. It was time to spend some money. After doing several days homework I had boiled it down to Rikon, Steel City and Jet. The Jet seemed to be the Cadillac of the group but then it was also the most expensive. Then in researching I saw that Home Depot co...

Repairing a hammer handle and refinishing a couple items

11-08-2014 05:02 AM by cpine | 0 comments »

It was one of those days where I was between projects and had several smaller things to get done. I had this older coffee table that really needed some attention nd the wife had placed it on our back porch. I guess she was tired of waiting for me to “get to it” So I refinished the top. I had an older cheap hammer that had a loose head, so I fixed that. I bought a yankee screwdriver at a garage sale and the handle was in bad shape. It is a wood handle and at first I thought about t...

From Top to Bottom: Reed Diffuser (made in China) – where else(qty 3) hand-carved Long Sweet Acacia ChopStickin’sOnly reason I chose to show the “man-made” one was to show how close I could come to achieving a strait result. I cut the in this case small limbs of the Acacia tree, I scraped the bark off, the tape the stick to a “strait stick” I know there are a few “kinks” in them but that is what makes this project more changeling, in time I h...

Scissor horses are all the rage... right?

10-22-2014 12:13 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

These scissor horses are popping up here and there on LJ’s since their introduction. And like many, I thought… a great idea. I do a lot of work with molding and flooring here. I usually bring in my old horses, put a piece of plywood over them and set up shop where the work is. When I saw these horses I decided that they were a great thing and especially since I use a miter saw a lot. To make the I actually started by outlining both parts of the scissor legs on a large piece of pa...
