Its been a crazy long time since ive been on lumberjocks but its time to get back into it, later today i will post all the projects ive done since the end grain cutting board! :)
Found a set of plans at Rockler for a three piece Arts & Crafts living room table set. Bought the materials for the coffee table – around $200. Bought enough materials for the coffee table to start. My 16 year old son did the mortise/tenons and all the cuts. We did staining together. Want to put on a mosaic tile top. We prefer staining prior to assembly.
well i had some really good shop time today and got alot done. a lot of pictures so i will try to keep text to a minimum. as always first i started off cutting the board to manageable pieces. then milled them 1/8” heavy and let them do their moving and took them down to final size when i needed them. then i needed to glue up the panel for the top and here i am doing a dry glue up to get everything ready. after the glue up was done and the glue dried i took the panel out. flus...
I had a great day on lumber jocks yesterday i had got 2 daily top 3’s in the one day with my space saving lumber storage and my small stool made entirely from hand tools, so now i have daily top 3 awards (my other being my homemade table saw). Its great seeing all the encouragement of people and it gives me great inspiration.
Four days off from blogging and I’m back with a new project underway, Tom’s back to school, and ones returning to the nest. I want to close out my shop maintenance week by telling you that I accomplished just about everything I set out to do. The shop is clean and organized, blades are sharp, things that should be square are and my mind is rested. I must say that it’s something that everyone who works in a shop should try and do at least once a quarter. My last posting I was asking for...
Today I spent the morning looking for enough wood to finish my Adirondack patio set. I went to two Lowes stores and pretty much cleaned them out of 1×3 Douglas Fir decking boards which is what I’m using for my seat slats and most of my back slats (I use one 1×4 for the middle back slat on the single chairs and 2 1×4s and 1 1×6 on the settee). The actual width of 2 3/8” is perfect and I just have to cut them to length. The problem is that there is never eno...
This is a knife…..well at least the handle.. I had a mate ask me to make a knife handle to replace the plastic handle he had on it.. . A small block of Hairy Oak was selected and then resawn. ... the two halves of the knife handle were double-stick taped together...to maintain grain pattern across both sides.....the shape drawn and cut on the bandsaw. As he wants to do the shaping and carving, I only had to rough cut the shape...only a coupla minutes to do it. I will post p...
Two years ago i was introduced to high school wood working. I was formerly familiar with the trade and tools as my great uncle and grandfather were both career woodworkers making fine furniture. Ever since i made my first project the dream has been for a roll top , well its been three courses and 250 hours later , i have been all allowed to begin construction on my desk. This blog will be about building that desk. More for me to track my progress than anything but anyones welcome to come lea...
My daughter and I are building a pie safe. Well, my daughter is building and i am supervising. She doesn’t seem to have much fear of the tools, so that is good. I have helped her with setting up the machines and giving advice, but she basically has done it all. She is 17 years old and a senior in high school. Anyway, here are a few pictures of what we have done so far. The design is roughly what is found in the 1988 Woodsmith magazine. I am pretty pleased with the results so far. ...
