My first blog!!

Hello to all our fellow wood workers out there, and great job for doing what you love. Even though there are times that we get frustrated with a project that we are working on, run into on problem after the other; like finding new scratches everytime you change the angle of your light, whoops dropped it again, dang I forgot to do that or where did that run come from? We stick with it because it is a part of us, we love it and with every item that we make, we leave a little piece of ourselves ...

Excuse the lighting I will improve the lighting in the second part. The second part of this podcast will focus on making a box to exclose the drafts board ...

Holier than thou, or the meek shall inherit the wood? #2: Days 2 and 3.

03-24-2008 04:14 AM by Bill Butler | 5 comments »

My shoptime allowance is spotty at best, however a couple of solid days in the last few weeks has allowed me the time to finish milling up all of the wood for my bookcase. Up until recently I hadn’t really had a design in mind for the first prototype of the bookcase to rise from the wood of the old church pew. It is now starting to take shape. It will have 4 shelves, 2 fixed and 2 adjustable. The shelves and the risers are milled to 11/16”. The planned finished dimensions of th...

Tools #1: I received a Harbor Freight catalog!

03-12-2008 12:59 AM by Jim Brown | 19 comments »

Why is this a surprise? Because there was only one today. Leafing through it, I’m stunned to realize that I’ve bought a ton of stuff from these people over the years, the vast majority of it from retail outlets, first in Charleston and later from Scranton. The new one in Wilkes Barre is actually pretty nice. I find myself spending some time defending the decision to buy from these folks, since the reputation of most of the tools is pretty low. I’ve been pretty happy with ...

Thicknessing drum sander - shop made

02-25-2008 11:09 PM by YorkshireStewart | 59 comments »

I’ve had a fancy for a thicknessing sander but a 10-20 inch model costs the equivalent of $1000 US over here and there’s no way I can justify that sort of spending so I looked into making one of my own. There’s no shortage of help to be had on the world-wide-web. The links I found useful include: Dominic’s Woodshop Kawika Ukulele Sander Ray Lanham Woodcentral Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery Mother earth The Woodshop Art Herrick Luthiers’ Friend Nick’s drum S...

Several people have asked a few questions so I thought I’s tell a little about this piece.This was a spec piece that I wanted to take to a show.The cherry came from a board I selected from a pile of 1,000 bd ft of curly cherry and was obviously one of the wowie,zowie boards.It’s obviously a version of a very old design tha’s been around for years.Truthfully I don’t do that anymore as I only use my own designs and have gotten into a different type of thing,yet similiar....

First of all I want to thank people for the kind words concernign this piece.Since there has been several questions about it I thought I’d take this time to talk about it.This piece has an interesting story about how it came to be.I had just finished a really large piece,very involved,very over the top(I’m lookin for a picture now),and wanted a break from the large project and gave myself a self imposed design project,build and design something with this small amount of wood that...

LumberJocks, The Community Creates a Memorial in Mark's memory #2: Making the shadow box frame

02-12-2008 03:23 AM by Karson | 13 comments »

Well Dusty and I talked about the broken and fractured stained glass panel. The panel was insured for material costs but definitely not the 70 some hours that were taken to make the panel. Previous blog Dusty’s #5 starts here. First blog starts here. I didn’t start on making the frame for the stained glass panel because I wanted to make it to fit the actual glass panel. Since we had a delay. The breakage and the filing for the insurance claim, I thought that I’d make the frame to mat...
