The Zen of Woodworking #2: Steps

09-26-2014 04:07 PM by BigAxe | 0 comments »

Wood working appears to have a number a number of separate and well defined steps. Each step requires its own tools and skill set. Step 1: Go into the woods, find a tree and cut it up into boards. Allow the boards to season for two or more years. I suspect many wood workers forgo this step and head directly to a lumber yard. I know of one headstone and probably there are more which reads “Killed by the fall of a tree”. I have bought some lumber from lumber yards, but now I te...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #44: I Love Detailed Fretwork - BUT !!

12-20-2012 01:27 PM by jerrells | 5 comments »

I love to do detailed fretwork. The more detailed the better. However that don’t, or is not, paying the bills. Sales of those products at the price I charge, which is getting lower and lower, Just does not seem to be worth the time. Therefore for the first part of the year I am turning to toys. Not the I really like doing them or that they are any more worth the time and effort. All the painting that needs to be done are a pain in the backside. I am or have been in three different...

Changing Table Build.. #4: Nearly There...Plus My First hand cut Mortise and Tenon joints

05-17-2013 06:09 AM by Airframer | 4 comments »

Trucking right along here. The bulk of tonight’s work was trimming the table top and carving out a couple through mortises. I have never done that before and don;t quite know what possessed me to do so but they turned out “OK” for a couple firsts. They are nice and tight but are less than pretty from the viewing side so some wedges will be in order. I do however feel very confident in their holding ability since I had to pound the crap out of the stretcher to get it set ...

Five years later, Workshop Remodel. Going from pretty to functional #1: Demolition

01-15-2014 09:41 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 9 comments »

At least five years ago I cleaned out an old garrison garage at the family home, took out a center wall and made a 25×25 ft shop. It looked great. Really nice. Everything in it’s place, drafting table, bulletin board, Dry erase marker board. All my power tools on one side where the dust collector was and an assembly area on the other side. I made a ‘new fangled bench’ which to this day is a nice bench. The original shop form back then can be seen at my workshop page..Th...

Church Lectern #1: Interesting project

03-26-2008 04:44 AM by pashley | 4 comments »

I’ve been engaged in building a church lectern for my friend’s startup, rather small church. Tried making a technical drawing in Bryce, and something got translated wrong, and now I have something way too huge, starting to look more like an altar rather than a lectern! Back to the drawing board.

Custom Buffet #1: The Plan

09-29-2013 03:46 AM by MT_Stringer | 0 comments »

What started as a leaking kitchen faucet has turned in to a kitchen remodel. However, I convinced my wife that before tearing up the kitchen, we should build a buffet in the dining room. If all goes well, then we will tackle the kitchen next year. We have been living in this house since July 1987. It has been paid for for several years and all of our kids are grown so it is just me and the missus. The cabinets are vintage 1983 oak but their time has come and gone. I don’t like the...

Picked up quite a bit of free scraps

08-08-2012 12:23 PM by Jason™ | 4 comments »

Hello fellow LJ’s I just wanted to write a short message and see if I could get some ideas for some small beginner projects to work on and also post on here to get some constructive criticism to help me learn better techniques and also become better at what im really interested in trying to accomplish. Now for the scraps I got recently, I went to a local wood craft place where they make custom built ins such as cabinets, ent. centers, etc.. The gentleman I spoke with was very h...
