building a bench and stuff #5: The home stretch

06-12-2015 05:25 AM by TheFridge | 2 comments »

Warning: pic heavy Just posting a bunch of progress. Leg vise continued. Cutting the bridal joint. Lignum vitae pin for the guide. This stuff strong. Trying to incorporate this as a pin holder but haven’t come across an idea that I can pull off with what I have on hand. So it’s on the back burner for now. Hammered a poplar dowel and drilled a center so I could bore it with a forstner. Didn’t work out so well. Stuck a roll pin...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1568: Fun NEW Projects!

06-08-2015 12:47 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

This past weekend I was terribly busy and I had a wonderfully fun time. While I loved creating my last huge project, it felt really good to be able to do some other things. When I work on one thing, I often get ideas for other projects to follow. I have learned to write these ideas down in a file so that later on when I am looking for something new to do, I have lots to choose from. You wouldn't believe how long the list is! I call it my 'job security' though and it seems that the...

building a bench and stuff #2: Stretchers and how I assembled

05-19-2015 01:33 AM by TheFridge | 4 comments »

I left off with some cypress jointed and planed for the stretchers with a loose idea of what I wanted to do. I was originally hoping to do a “loopy” sort of deal (like the loopy infill), but I’d need to invest in a router guide bushing set and make or buy some templates and bits. In the end, I just did this Which translates to this. After milling the stretchers and the dados in the legs, I went ahead and glued the legs in first. Then the stretchers. Then a little purpleheart...

Thorsen House Cabinet #12: A little on Ebony plugs....

04-22-2015 07:30 PM by EläväPuu | 0 comments »

This Thorsen House cabinet repro is probably the third large-scale Greene & Greene project I’ve worked on in addition to numerous smaller lighting items. Common to the lot of them are masses of Ebony splines and plugs. Lots of information exists on people’s own ideas of how to pillow, round, shape, soften and relieve simple square plugs. Probably the most common that I’ve come across is William Ng’s tactic of chucking up a squared and thicknessed stick and pillo...

From Zero to Hero #1: Headphone Stand and Catch All

03-09-2015 02:56 AM by arvanlaar | 2 comments »

Hey All, So I am very new to woodworking. I decided recently to try my hand at some fine wood working after marrying into a world famous boat building family who as master craftsmen when it comes to working with wood. I wanted to start this blog to journal my journey from basically a nobody in the grand scheme of woodworking, into hopefully a skilled woodworker who creates things that people can be in awe of one day. I have no idea how long that will take (most likely a lifetime!!!) but...

Little Bathroom Remodel - Lumberjocks style #1: Countertop

03-07-2015 05:15 PM by MarkTheFiddler | 6 comments »

Howdy, I’m redoing the tiniest of tiny bathrooms. One entire wall is occupied by the tub. The other wall is taken up by the vanity and one of those gigantic mirrors. In between those small walls is the throne. If you are seated at the throne, there is just enough room to open the door. Yep… Tiny! I started on the countertop simply because I already knew exactly how I wanted it. Here are a few work in progress shots. I have already received some outstandi...
