It’s funny how you can take the same thing and make it look so completely different. I guess that I why I like painting so much. Even though I do appreciate the beauty of the natural colors of wood, there are times when it just isn’t possible or practical to use natural and exotic wood. My friend Cari and I used to have a lumber yard nearby when we lived in Oak Lawn, a suburb of Chicago. This was back when I had just started to scroll saw, as Cari and her father are the ones ...

I last left off where my boards for the top where seriously warped. I also was waiting for my new jointer. I received my new Powermatic Jointer and I love it. I wish I knew how to use it better but it will come in time. Jointing ProblemOne question I wondered about it when I tried to flatten a board. I jointed just one side of the board until it was flat. The only problem was to get the board flat the jointer removed so much wood that I wasn’t able to use the board because it became to...
I have a desire for more storage and organization around my lathe. My current solution is to use every possible vertical surface for all my lathe related accessories. As you might imagine this is, well, not the best system. Mainly because it clutters up my shop and I spend my time trying to figure out what I did with this or that item. I have looked at some of the commercially available items and they are just too costly. So here is the design I think I am going to go with. I made a few di...
Hello, I’m looking for plans for the outdoor treated lumber bar stools as shown in the photo. Thanks!
I wanted to replace the missing handle on my Stanley scraper plane. The project should be a simple turning task if I only know what the key dimensions are. I gave up searching on the net after months of Google without success. Fortunately I was able to get my hands on several examples of the handle. I believe that the handles were hand turned, each one has some minor variance. Attached is a drawing of handle with dimensions for Lumberjocks’ future reference. Hopefully, it will sav...
I know that some of my buddies are Canadian, and I’m sure there are a bazillion more out there, so I have a question for them. But first the story behind the question … When I was working on my Frankenstein musical automaton, I was fascinated with how a Geneva stop mechanism snaps things to attention in one increment per turn of the crank. So that got me to thinkin’. What else could I snap to attention? A soldier? A saluting soldier? A saluting Mountie? A saluting ...
Its been a a long few years in highschool and a solid maple workbench will be my final project. Ive been designing it for months and finally received the wood 90 BF of 8/4 hard maple. My portion being the 7 lighter colored boards on the left. Let the bench begin! Starting to shape up , i should mention the finish on these boards was fantastic , they had warped some but the faces were nearly flat and already smoothed making it much less work to joint flat surfaces. The smaller boards we...
Inspired by this fine huntboard This bookcase has 3 sections, the 2 on the ends will handle most novel while the center section is for larger books that never seem to fit in a normal book case, there is 160 ” of shelve space in the 70” piecehttp://i241.photobucket.com/albums/ff175/jledington2002/Scan_2.jpg This design I pulled from my design notebook. It is a design That worked up for a customer, but I never got to build. I think it would look good build out of walnut with a...
I saw this design challenge just surfing the net one day. I just so happened to be working on a bookcase design of my own. So here it is. In my design is made to be broken down easily to be shipped. So the spacers are made of metal. I don’t know if that qualifies for the challenge. But it is just a design. They could easily be made out of wooden dowels or even antiqued cooper pipe for that matter. In my mock ups I used white ash. One is done natural with a tung oil and wax fini...
