I am going to mill the wood myself with a chainsaw mill. Hoping to use oak for the beams, of anyone has any insight I would appreciate it.

1000 post in 1600 Days

11-18-2011 02:03 PM by Chris Davis | 13 comments »

I was posting a project this morning and realize that I was at 1000 post in 1600 days. WOW! It doesn’t seem like I’ve been here a LJ’s that long. Along with that I have 261 projects here. It is great to be able to go back and remember the building experience because of the write-ups. I sometimes even refer back to one on other builds so I don’t have to reinvent the wheel. This is a great site with great people. I’ve leaned a lot from professionals to t...

A break from the normal murphy bed and switching gears to a twin four poster bed. I’m posting out of order, but here is the video of the post glue up. Video streaming by UstreamThe post will be 2 1/2” x 2 1/2” with a small chamfer on the edges to make an octagon look. I’m going to stop the chamfer on the inside where the post attach.

French Fry Friday #3: Oak End Table

11-26-2010 02:55 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

Just a reminder French Fri Friday is when I showcase some of the smaller things that often get overlooked. End tables are something that can be sold as in a pair or will even work by itself. One thing that I have learned is that to make one more versatile it is best to design and finish it where it can be view for all sides. With the need for surfaces in the middle if the room, next to a mid-room sofa, most unfinished end table will not work easily. A little planning ahead and a little mo...

Way Back Wednesday #2: Spanish Rose

11-18-2010 03:42 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

On Way Back Wednesday, I’m not going too far. In my span here it is. It is our Spanish Rose Four Poster. I built my first one about 10 years ago. At one time it was one of our biggest sellers. It was really our first production standard bed. Production as in I standardized the cut list and design to make it easier, quicker to build, and cheaper for the customer. It was a solid pine bed, built mostly form 2×10’s. The iron was a rose pattern made from cast iron. I really loved how I fin...

We Crossed 200,000 Comments!

04-29-2008 06:31 PM by Martin Sojka | 18 comments »

This was veeeery fast – we were at 100,000 comments only 150 days ago and now we have crossed 200,000! Note that the number of comments includes also the number of forum replies since they are de facto same thing. After doing quick calculations we’re averaging well over 50 posts per LumberJock (including projects, blog entries, forum topics, reviews) and this is something to be proud of. You will not find many community/forum sites with this kind of activity. Only those reviews...
