Woodworking for a Job ?

1387 days ago by cdbridge39 | 17 comments »

I have been thinking about going into woodworking full time. I like to work with wood all the time, what does that say about me ? Does anyone do woodworking full time ? I just don’t know what would be a good product to make and sell. Does anyone have any ideas ? Some pointers and tips would be good. I like making lathe stuff but I don’t think there is much money in it. Maybe some furniture or boxes ?

Intarsia Basics #2: Preparing Your Wood and Pattern for Cutting

735 days ago by KoryK | 17 comments »

Intro: Hello to all and welcome to the first installment of Intarsia Basics. Before we can start cutting we need to select the wood we want to use and get our pattern ready. Wood Choices: I prefer to start with stock that is one inch thick because that gives you a lot of depth that you can work with. It will require a little more sanding on some areas but it will help to give your piece a 3D look. It is your choice if you prefer to stain your wood to achieve the colors or use exot...

5,000 year old door : Exciting new findings

1240 days ago by Roger Clark aka Rex | 16 comments »

Archeologists have uncovered more artifacts after excavating around the door and under the door. After carefully cleaning the front of the door a carved sign was found. The significance of these markings is not generally understood, but some believe it represents the number 6. More interesting items were found under the door, which would have been the inside. This could have been some sort of tool, or maybe a wedge to keep the door open in a required opening. Seeing how old this...

An Old Barn #2: Pics of tools found

1459 days ago by slickytfox | 16 comments »

I had already taken some pictures of some of the tools that I discovered when removing the top layer of the collapsed shed. To preface this, the door to this shed was to open inward but it wouldn’t budge before it collapsed because a ceiling beam had fallen and wedged itself against the door making it impossible to open. I couldn’t get to the hinges and I was always fearful of kicking it in because I had no clue of how it might fall if I did get the door to budge. Through some cra...

Evolution of Walnut & Pine television stand #2: Phase 2

717 days ago by TZH | 15 comments »

I’d like to thank you, junipercanyon , for your advice on chain sharpening for ripping. Man, what a difference. I figured since you advised somewhere between 0 and 10 degrees I’d split the difference and go with 5 degrees. Slabbed all three in less time than it took me to do the first cut in Phase 1 of this project. This is some really fantastic wood I’m working with, and I can only hope to be able to score more of it in the future. Step 1: Scribe the lines:I used a laser...

Desperate Woodworking

37 days ago by iamcliff | 15 comments »

Sometimes I just want to make something. I get the woodworking bug so bad I just gotta do something and it doesn’t matter what. Am I alone in this? Luckily, I’ve been able to do a few woodworking things lately. I made lumber racks for my shop; I made a little platform that my lawnmower can fit underneath and that I can store my wheelbarrow on top of, thus making more room in the shop. I also just finished one of those pallet signs like you see on pinterest (for my sister-i...

Antique End Grain Cutting Board

1110 days ago by Roger Clark aka Rex | 15 comments »

As many of my fellow LJs must know, a huge amount of decorative cutting board projects have been posted here and they are mostly very decorative and one would hesitate you actually use the item as a cutting board in order to preserve the surface. Most likely they would not be used for cutting, but as a decorative item or a wall hanging like a not hit dart board. I did a lot of research into cutting boards and found original designs listed in a medieval parchment at the Smithsonian. These ...
