I got a text from my wife who was out at a meeting this morning. Says she has some carpentry work for me, a rustic dining room table. Now I know full well, this is not for us. We don’t even have a dining room! So that means this is to be paid work! I only hope the customer isn’t too picky on details and such. Those of you who have read my profile know that tables are about as big as I go for projects. I have a small shop and usually do big stuff outside. It’s Octob...
Hi fellow LJs. I must say that in my first couple of months here, I have learned a lot. This place is a wealth of knowledge and good ideas, and maybe some not too good ideas. But hey, we are all adults here, and we share our triumphs and defeats, good ideas and bad(if there really is such a thing), as well as good deals, trade secrets, and all other things woodworking. So I found a steal of a deal on the hardwood rough sawn lumber over the weekend. My excitement poured over on the insid...

The past couple years ive developed a passion for woodworking. its my time where i can get so focused on my projects and completely block out anything the world is throwing at me at any given time. I guess you can say the craft itself is basically my therapist, only if i were to substitute a real therapist id probably save about 10x the money that i do on tools, but they are beginning to get to the point where they are starting to pay themselves off. In my opinion where the true passion for ...
Some friends of ours moved into a new house and were needing some furniture. They had seen a hall tree on Pinterest made from pallet wood and asked if I could make it for them. The hall tree frame is made of 2×4s. I will be staining the frame a dark grey and then pinning pallet wood to the frame for the rustic look the customer wants. I’m staining the frame so that the whitewood won’t show through and distract from the decorative pallet wood. I still have some finish ...

I have recently starting scratching the itch that has been the desire to finally get into woodworking. I have wanted to do this for a long time, but never had the opportunity to really start until recently. Some friends of ours moved into a new house and were needing some furniture. They had seen some projects on Pinterest made from crates and were going to ask someone else to make them, but I saw my opportunity and jumped on it. There began the journey into many YouTube videos and trip...
