I’m making a small table for my wife’s TV room. All my lumberjocks friends have given me the courage and some knowhow for me to once again stretch the envelope and try the hardest project to this point. Thank you my friends! The room is very small and needs very small end tables and a small cocktail table. I figured that since the room is next to the entryway with the dodecahedron pendant light, I might as well push the theme. On top of that, I own the lumber already which h...

Greetings Ladies and Gents, I’ll try to avoid my bad habit of making a short story long as I want to be respectful of your time, want to capture your interest and hope to get your input.My step son hooked me up with a furnace “squirrel cage” from some replacement job he did. The unit is very close to 17”X17”X17” again. The motor is not belt driven, and it is a 1/3 hp Lennox that can go some 17 hundred RPM, I think I read on the label. Not sure how that translates to CFM but I suspect it wil...
Well, here it is, a general idea of what I hope to do with my workshop space: For clarity, I left the walls invisible, although their outlines are still there. There are a few constants with the arrangement. The rear wall is reserved for household storage, this is not really optional, and the location of the deep freezer is pretty much set as well, since their really isn’t a better place for it. Other than that, I left the workbenches and table saw about where they are now, since...
gathering logs for 14×18 cabin with loft, I have access to all the southern iowa lumber i need, hickory, oak, walnut, osage orange, red cedar, & red elm. Will try to use all types of lumber in the cabin, shell is going to be made with 3 sided cedar logs, i have been practacing hand peeling & judging size of logs I will need, will be hard to get full 18ft logs due to tapper, think i will take two 10 footers & splice them. Going to do all my own milling with a stihl ms 660 magnum ...

At this point, despite taking today ‘off’ from shop time, I’m going to call the interior shop cleaning ‘done’, in that once I put away what is left on top of my bench, I will have it all cleaned up and ready to work. Now it is on to bigger & better things. I’ve had my shop in various states of progress for about a decade. I’ve made a bunch of things from the shop itself, to several beds, a bunch of cutting boards and so forth. One thing I hav...
One of the first things I did here after finding this site was to post a project I had designed in Sketchup for a new TV stand to match my entertainment center. You can find the original forum post here: http://lumberjocks.com/topics/1522 I thought it might be interesting if I detailed the evolution of this project to show how listening to good advice can drastically change the way you have something originally designed. We had a large 65” TV we were going to replace with a newe...
Four Restorations, Two Remodels, Two Staircases, and One more Deck. The first 7 months of my move from computer programmer into professional woodworker. All this and I found time to write a new web application for woodworkers too. Though work has been decent in this economic climate, I can’t say there hasn’t been down time but I made the effort to put it to good use and develop Pins & Tails. Now originally it was supposed to be for me to track and journal my work to reference ...
I’ve been playing with Sketchup a little bit when I have free time, and decided to make a model of my friends gated entry into the backyard. The post caps are the same as the ones I’m showing him how to make. I enjoy working in Sketchup, but right now I’m so slow in designing that I could almost have something built before I can model it. The images may be cut off, if so you can click on them to see the full size image.
