Ironing or Sanding

07-12-2011 11:20 PM by Jamie Speirs | 10 comments »

Well it is a strange auld world.I came fae a generation of Child birth was left to the women folk.Now there is 3 months Paternity Leave.I cant figure that one out.When my first one was born in 1976, my contribution was as much overtime as I could get. Expensive wee buggers.When they started eating solids was the time for Pop to step in. The solids make the cleanup easier both ends.The first 3 months I was to scared I’d break him. Like working with walnut burl veneer. Not a rush or rough job. ...

Turning Progress

07-10-2011 05:03 AM by thiswoodshop | 2 comments »

Today was a very productive day. I had a some time to ruff turn my big black walnut blank and put it on the shelve to dry completely. There also was some time to finish my walnut root bowl and the small cherry bowl. I’m still improving my skill set with every bowl that’s finish. I must say if I look back at the first day I started turning and successfully broke a tool whiles impaling a peace of test wood into my garage wall. I’m much more comfortable with the different speed of the lathe and ...

homemade disc sander

07-05-2011 07:49 AM by TRYPHON974 | 3 comments »

Sorry I had trouble with photobucketI made this disc sander 6 or 7 years ago. I put together a 2,5hp electric lawn mower motor, a 7” wooden disc and some metal plates. Ugly but effective: It was time for an overhaul, it’s now a pedestal 10” sander with a tilting rest. I just made a shaft coupling ( from an aluminum ingot I poured :D ) to make all the hand grinder’s accessories fit: For example with a flap disc (sort of): I will replace the switch by a pedal sw...

The Evolution of Design #1: The Making of the Rocker Cradle

06-30-2011 02:41 AM by ScottMorrison | 8 comments »

Soon, I will be releasing a documentary on the evolution, history and the making of a Rocker Cradle. Although I’d love to take credit for the original concept, the idea was actually a bit before my time, circa 1700’s. Hope you enjoy the clip…

My First Bastone Walnut Burl!

When I was slabbing it you could definately smell the walnut but it was different from the Claro and English. These have great dark black lines that are marbled. Beautiful white sap wood and hart wood. These are pics of some of the slabs. Cutting Wood Is A Blast!!!

Woodworking with Abrasives - Provocative Teaser Article by Andrew Crawford in British Woodworking

06-17-2011 08:54 PM by Steven Davis | 3 comments »

I found out about Andrew Crawford via an article somewhere here at Lumerjocks. For those who don’t know, he is a master box maker. I joined his mailing list at fine-boxes.com fine-boxes.com/ and just received his newsletter with a link to his article “A Riddle in the Sand”. Very, very interesting. In the article, Mr. Crawford argues that abrasives have evolved rapidly in recent decades and should be part of the toolkit of any woodworker, not just for finishing and p...

TV Time

06-16-2011 03:28 AM by Transition | 3 comments »

I don’t watch much TV. It takes away from shop time. And most of it is garbage anyway. But I do catch a show or two, or watch a movie from time to time, on my computer. And I hate to admit it, I enjoy reruns as much as the next guy. I’ve spent countless hours and wasted precious life re-watching Star Wars, James Bond, Indiana Jones, Bad Boys, Kelly’s Heros, Sweet Home Alabama, etc… Why would anyone watch a show more than two or three times? It’s not like c...

Building Baby Stokes' 3-in-1 Crib #8: Making the Stepped Pattern

06-14-2011 04:30 AM by Will Stokes | 2 comments »

Once the mortises were complete, it was time to finally move on to the stepped pattern. I first roughed out the pattern at the band saw so as to remove the majority of the waste. After the problems I ran into while building a pair of cradles I now know I need to get to within 1/16” of the line I’ll eventually template route to. I’m currently borrowing my neighbors bench-top bandsaw which has a slightly dull blade and doesn’t always cut perfectly straight so I...
