02-19-2012 04:31 PM by sandhill | 0 comments »

Two of the videos I posted here I go back and watch over and over because of the insperation they give me, hope you find them that way as well. I am posting two links, one not related to this Blog but worth posting for wood workers about a company that builds furniture with the most intricate joinery I have ever come across. The second is the link to a video on WoodTrek about the bench I mention in the video. Pat 4 should be read in week or two. http://woodtreks.com/design-build-tr...

Restoration Of Table, Completed!!!!!

08-05-2012 06:23 PM by Woodworker_Collins | 11 comments »

When my grandad was a carpenter he worked in Aras an Uachtairain (the irish presidents house), he brought this table home from there one day when he was in his 20’s because it was going to be thrown out, he did some repairs and salvaged it. But after being used for 60 years (which the first governor of ireland wrote on the table) and then being used another 40 years when my grandad got it, it was in pretty bad shape. My granny said i could do what i wanted to do with it, because she had...

Hand Tool Ramblings #3: The Anarchists Bug Out Box

12-24-2013 04:55 AM by rustythebailiff | 4 comments »

Living here in sunny FLA, we don’t have to worry about ice and snow. But, we do get the occasional tornado. And hurricanes are not unheard of. So, as my hand tool collection has grown over the years, it suddenly occurred to me that if I had to flee from impending natural disaster, it would take me a good hour to gather up my precious hand tools. Now, not to downplay the importance of my power tools, but they are easier to replace than some of my vintage hand tools. So, after watc...

first commision

Yo whats up everybody so I got a call from my grand mother in Detroit and she asked me if I could make some crosses for her. My grand father is a priest in Detroit and she needed some for sunday school so I said ok how many you need and she was like 150 now it takes me about 5 minutes to make 2 crosses because I cut it in half. That includes cutting out the pattern and sanding it and staining it now I have already finished about 50 and they need them by September so I hurry up. I get about 3...

Summer Happenings

06-30-2010 02:30 PM by rando1 | 8 comments »

Well, As I sit in my air conditioned office, I am already dreading that hot job site that awaits us! We have moved out from the shop in the past few weeks and are on two sites that involve custom Trim work and built-ins. The problem is…IT IS HOT…and only June! The area we live in is normally very uncomfortably hot, but it has started early this year. Currently we are working on a large home on one of the resort islands. It doesn’t have the air working as of now. What...

DoDecaHedron Light Fixtures #1: Nothing Went Right

08-20-2012 03:10 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 13 comments »

I cut This way, That way, Upside down and Sideways. I thought I had it all down but nothing was making sense. I truly made an impressive pile of kindling. Then, I thought I had it. I tried to assemble and discovered another error in my logic. Here is a sample: That’s not bad for practice but I soon discovered the error of my ways. The angle where the two boards are joined was cut at 13.28 degrees or my absolute best estimate. My machines are just not that precise. Why 13...

Tool Cabinet Build #2: Design Solidified Finally...

09-14-2013 06:55 AM by Airframer | 10 comments »

This morning before work I finally got a plan together for this cabinet. It hits all the design criteria I had laid out and more so I think it’s a go on the build now. Here is my highly technical “sketch up” of the cabinet :D This is a head on view. The bottom cabinet with drawers on it will reside between the legs and can be un attached and rolled elsewhere in the shop if needed. This will hold mostly consumables (sandpaper, glue up supplies etc) and my sharpen...

Hey Lumber Jock Friends,Im Matt Riemenschneider, an 18 year old that is trying to go to Fox Valley college for wood manufacturing. My dream is to build yachts, id love to be able to do that.
