Made a lot of mistakes on this one, which caused me to learn a bunch of new tricks and fixes. Firstly, I shouldn’t have used crooked wood for the box sides. I knew what would happen. All the corners were bad of course. I cut them out! Then when I was doweling the new corners, they cracked. Just wanted to show my project that I love and hate and maybe hear some feedback, or other horror stories.
This build was a result of a challenge from another you-tuber named Opa Koster. I really liked the results and wanted to share the pictures and video here on lumberjocks. The bench was bought from a local antique store and was painted with some ugly green paint over the wood and cast iron. I had quite a task to remove that paint and primer from the cast iron. I liked the back cast iron piece but I envisioned a different project for it. So it has been saved it for a later project ...
Wheels are done. I glued up the sleeper and engine block. Used purpleheart and pine. The block has the firewall attached.The purpleheart bleed into the pine. I will use tape to cover the purpleheart and lightly sand the pine to clean it up. Was this from the resins? That is it for this weekend back to work in the morning.

This build is being done in sub assembly.I started with the wheels, axles and rims. purchased as part of the kit. Tires are stained ebony, 2 coats, light sanding between. Rims and axles will be high gloss poly.
This is a first draft of what should become a nice illustrated tutorial on making a pair of one piece pipes. The pipe making process is much more complicated and needs a lot of tools to make. Pipe making requires: Table saw Drill press (several bits) Band saw 4” Stationary Belt sander Oscillating Spindle Sander 1” belt sander 8” disc sander ROS sanding @ 120 & 240 Hand sand with sanding sponge At this point the pipe is ready for finishing. ...
Hi, I’m a Swedish part time cabinetmaker. This is the first time I can present a “proper” documentation of a project. Enjoy :) https://youtu.be/-RKHqrMsfjY
I’m just getting this blog post started so it already set up, but in the next 6 months I should have everything up and running for me to build wooden boats for people. I’ll be starting out with some strip built kayaks and canoes most likely. In all actuality I have no idea what people are going to want. I plan on just getting the word out and let people come to me so we can sit down and draw up exactly what they want. After I’ve got a good thing going I will start cold moldi...
I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.
