He also teaches at other well-known locations, including the John C. Campbell Folk School. Bill makes marvelous...
Here is my attempt to build an affordable wooden 4 drawer filing cabinet. I rule out: Plwood, as it is way too expensive in Australia for anything but the most expensive style of furniture.MDF, I built a single draw prototype and, even when using frame construction, it was way too heavy.Melamine, may be a good choice but for this project I don’t think it looks good enough.Solid wood, as it is too expensive. My current choice is to go with premium (knot free) pine and pine panel...

I had a small piece of pine laying around and a free afternoon so I decided to carve another spoon. I wanted it to be small (somewhere between a teaspoon and a tablespoon) and simple in shape. I traced around some plastic spoon I had in my kitchen and altered the handle shape a bit. With the outline ready I went to work. I made some stop-cuts with a saw and bashed out the waste with a 20mm chisel. I also did the same to the underside since the stock was way too thick for a spoon.I find ...
We were looking for a garden shed for our tools and gardening stuff.

We had a bit of trouble putting on the last part of the roof, but all it took was a quick email and they got back to us quickly.We have since had several people comment on our ‘good looking’ shed and are surprised how inexpensive it was. Happy t...
Hello All, Just found some time to send an update to Lumber Jocks. Spud Woodworks is growing once more, this time I have launched a new product line! I acquired a NEW in the box 1995 Delta Scroll Saw on Ebay… That’s right, I couldn’t believe it when I came across it! And it is beautiful and works amazingly.

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...
