Bandsawn Box #1 #1: Getting the wood ready

01-03-2008 05:55 AM by Karson | 22 comments »

Well I went to the attic, actually surface area of the wood rack in the workshop and picked up a Bigleaf Maple Burl piece that I bought about 5 years ago on eBay. It came from the Pacific Northwest of the USA. The piece had been water blasted to remove all of the bark off the outer edge of the burl and that leaves the spikes that are seen here. The block had been dipped in wax to minimize the drying of it. I then went to the jointer (spiral Carbide blades) and cleaned up the edges. ...

Honey Do List #2: Good Source for Wood?

01-02-2008 05:16 PM by cpt_hammer | 8 comments »

My wife has instructed me that I have quite a long list of items to be built. Much to my excitement, I’ve enjoyed looking at different designs and coming up with some rudimentary plans for these items. However, when I went out to my garage (shop), I noticed that my lumber supply is rather meek. Here is my sad list of lumber: Oak: 2 – 1/2” x 12” x 36” plywood boards 1 – 1/2” x 6” x 60” solid board Aspen:3 – 1” x 3&#...

master bedroom closet #1: Master bedroom closet #1

01-02-2008 04:53 PM by Timber_Cruiser | 5 comments »

Well, it is officially 2008 and just like everybody else the new years resolutions have been made. I have even broke one within 24 hours yesterday. I have been motivated and inspired to do a build in our master closet with some basic cabinetry to store clothes folded and some rods to hang clothes in our walk in closet. Currently we have closetmaid wire shelves and rods to hang clothes. I could add more storage for clothes and shoes and it would be more aesthetically pleasing. This of co...

"This Old Mold House" #9: The first "surprise" arrives...Let the work began

01-01-2008 03:05 PM by Dusty | 19 comments »

After demolishing the basement and cleaning it out, I had a chance to assess the real condition of the plumbing, electrical, heating, and various other parts of the house. Not good! I confirmed pretty much what I expected and that for which I had planned, and budgeted. This included breaking up the floor and replacing all the floor drains and pipe, the plumbing needed to be redone. The electrical wiring was in dire shape. The heating plant (hot water hea...

The Gazebo #1: Almost finished.

12-29-2007 09:10 PM by MsDebbieP | 7 comments »

Somewhere on here I’d started a blog about our gazebo. I’ll have to go back and find the other blog entries. We started out with a 10×10 tent gazebo purchased from Rona, and after the wind destroyed the frame, it became a wooden framed gazebo with the tarps for walls and roof. The weather has been rough on the tarps and we have had to start replacing the tarps with wood. Other than the 2×4’s, we have used scrap pieces of everything and anything we could find ...

Breakfront Cabinet #1: Design Considerations

12-29-2007 06:36 AM by BruisedThumb | 3 comments »

Every project starts with a controversy; this one is no different. However, being that this has been in queue for awhile, I have a few designs to work with, the time table is better understood, and the I’m doing modeling in SketchUp versus graph paper. Thinking about this more, perhaps the time table isn’t as well understood. Physically, this is the largest project I’ve done. The project sponsor, my wife, might be looking at the time required for the armoire as a referen...

Greene And Greene Inspired Projects #2: Greene Inspired bench .... "From an amazing wood find" ...the story behind the projects

Greene Inspired bench …Part two… “From an amazing wood find” ...the story behind this After hosting an open house that was open to the public in my home “This Old Crack House”, which was a fund raiser for the local food shelf, I was approached and asked if I would build a Greene and Greene Entry Bench, by a lady who was in attendance. I explained to the lady, who later, turned out that she was one of the curators, for the local Historical Society here...

Home Front #1: Front Porch

12-25-2007 10:33 PM by DustyNewt | 5 comments »

I feel remiss in not posting any projects lately on LumberJocks, but the truth is I have had a few home projects going on that includes some wood work and a whole lot of sweat. Plus work, plus Christmas gifts of keychains and boxes, I really haven’t had the time to create any thing new and exciting. So, I am taking a little time now to share what I have been doing. Building “sweat equity”. The first major problem (project) started when I walked out the front door of my house on...

Greene inspired Night Stand #1: Time to start the execution phase

12-24-2007 07:31 PM by ChicoWoodnut | 6 comments »

Well I think I am finally done with the design of this piece. I made a change last night which is actually a regression to an earlier model. I like this change. I have reversed the rails and stiles on the door construction making the stiles be the horizontal member. I read an entry on this site the other day regarding this technique. Sorry I can’t remember who to credit it to. Anyway, Here are two jpeg exports to compare. I think the new arrangement gives the table a low and wide...

The Craftsman's Path #20: Queen Anne Side Table - More leg shaping

12-23-2007 05:47 PM by Mark Mazzo | 3 comments »

I was out of town last weekend for a family wedding so, progress on the table was stalled a bit. I got some more time in the shop yesterday and went to work shaping the legs for the table toward their final state. I had started this process before my trip but, I was not quite happy with some parts of the effort. The trip away allowed me to think about how I wanted to approach making changes for the better. You can read about my progress at my blog where there are a lot of pictures of the ...
