starting my kitchen cabinets

1827 days ago by woodchic | 78 comments »

Hi everybody…....My husband finally got the floor finished…...he did a fantastic job I might add and now…..I finally sucked up enough courage to get started on my kitchen cabinets. The kitchen and dining area is 14 ft wide x 24.6 ft long. My cabinets are made of plywood and my face frames and doors are made out of hickory. I have never worked on a set of kitchen cabinets before, so I am pretty much learning this on my own. I have a friend on here that gives me advice whe...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #1: FINALLY- The first episode is done! You're gonna LOVE IT!

1020 days ago by StumpyNubs | 63 comments »

Maybe “LOVE” is a strong word. But I’m really excited about the final version of the show, and I think most people will feel the same way. Forget about everything we experimented with before. This is all new. It’s been over a year in development, and And I’d like to think it is a pretty unique format! Here’s how it works… The show is designed to have the feel of a single camera “reality” type show. It is meant to be a glimpse into our workshop as if you were just stopping in...

Drunken Cutting Boards #1: Drunken Alice in Wonderland Cutting Board

1813 days ago by poroskywood | 41 comments »

Hey everybody, after a few personal messages here is my version of a how to on a Drunken Checker Board. I of coarse bow to the Chairman of the Board and pay tribute with beer. This is a Off-Checker pattern I call “Drunken Alice in Wonderland” The “serendipitous” nature of this piece is appealing in a far out sort of way. Here Goes… So first I prepare the Material. I am using Hard Maple and Walnut both are surfaced flat and cut 1” x 9” x 14&...

How to find and harvest legal burls!

1779 days ago by OregonBurls | 37 comments »

Hey everyone, It was suggested that I start a discussion on how to find and harvest burls. Please give your input also. I don’t deal with straight grain that often. I cut and sell burls for a living so here is what I know. It is illegal to harvest a burl without permission. of course if it is on your own property you can give yourself permission. What I do is put an ad on Craig’s list saying I want your burls. Most people don’t know what burls are. So you don’t get that many calls....

Vintage Craftsman 306.9121 planer restoration #1: Planer restoration. The beginning.

766 days ago by Don W | 36 comments »

So I won a planer on ebay for $39. I bid the starting bid never expecting to win. I figured for $39, the 3hp electric motor would cover it. This was the only picture supplied. Last weekend I drove to pick it up. http://lumberjocks.com/topics/39731 Once home I gave it a systems check. Does it work? The description said “In working condition”, but what exactly did that mean. Since the motor was not attached, I rewired it for 110V just to test it (will be put back to 220v ...

Split Roubo Workbench #4: Milling, gluing and clamping - The Slabs

869 days ago by lysdexic | 32 comments »

I took my lumber for the top to Rick’s at The Woodworking Source to mill it up. What is taking my better part of 2 days we knocked out in about an hour and a half. These are some pics of Rick’s place. Its interesting that Rick does not do woodworking outside of work. He golfs because it is what he does to forget about what he does when he needs to forget about what he does. He is a professional and a great asset. ———————...

The Board. A Tongue In Cheek Essay...... With Pictures Part l

44 days ago by Gene Howe | 31 comments »

Recently, there was a bit of concern expressed regarding a board that was posted as a project. it got me to thinking (a rare occurrence) that some folks might not understand or appreciate the dedication, skill and work that is involved in the making of a board. Hence this blog/tutorial. First, lets define the term for those not familiar with boards. Most authorities agree that a board is a flat slab of wood or other material for some specific purpose. For our purposes, we’ll limit th...

970 days ago by MSlumberjocks | 31 comments »

Today marked the beginning of a joint Mississippi lumberjocks project…. For now, I just want to take a moment and ask that if anyone happens to figure out what the project is, please don’t spoil the fun and post what it is….. So, after a bit of delay on KTMM’s part….. (SWMBO hit him with a honeydo list), he was finally able to make it to William’s shop. SuperDav721 beat him getting there…. The three started the project out with a cup (or thr...
