Pallet Craft #23: She found the staircase!

09-28-2012 04:00 PM by Ethan Harris | 1 comment »

Hello Readers! Well my daughter is 6 months old now, and she found the staircase this week…(no worries, we stopped her advancement up them) So I will be building a set of upper and lower staircase gates for her protection against nasty spills. I put together this mockup for the design. As usual this will be made from pallet wood and will be featured on my Pallet Craft blog. But alas! I acquired a block plane! And I am very happy with how it changes the way the wood looks...

Cocktail table for my wife's room. #2: Top is being mounted

09-27-2012 03:21 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 3 comments »

Howdy, I started mounting the table top today. It occurs to me, in hindsight, that I may have caused myself a lot of frustration. I’ll find out soon enough when I try to place the diamonds. Be that as it may, it’s turning out pretty well but you can still tell that a rookie is doing the work. I was able to use the warped pieces but now I have a few pieces that are slightly higher than others. I just bought myself more hours of sanding. I’ve also got a few gaps. A f...

Steam Bending #1: Steam Bending A Trout Fishing Net

09-27-2012 02:18 AM by Retsof | 7 comments »

Fly fishing is one of my other hobbies and like wood working, it can be very expensive. Thankfully, I’ve been fly fishing for close to 25 years and gradually acquired some really great gear that will last a lifetime. To keep costs under control, I like to tie my own flies and build as much of my own gear as possible. I built a custom fly rod back in 1998, and it is still my favorite (a 9ft 6wt on a Winston 3-piece LT blank). I was able to save 60% off the stock rod by building it ...

Cocktail table for my wife's room. #1: Table top underway

09-24-2012 01:34 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 13 comments »

I’m making a small table for my wife’s TV room. All my lumberjocks friends have given me the courage and some knowhow for me to once again stretch the envelope and try the hardest project to this point. Thank you my friends! The room is very small and needs very small end tables and a small cocktail table. I figured that since the room is next to the entryway with the dodecahedron pendant light, I might as well push the theme. On top of that, I own the lumber already which h...

5 Knives #5: Your Decision... Pick a handle..

09-17-2012 04:15 PM by AJM | 4 comments »

I would like a simple comment please. Pick A Pic. I did not take a photo of bird cherry 2 but you can pick this as well. Each layer will have a strip of black leather between it like the first picture. Pictures did not come out to well but i hope you get the idea on how they would look. A large piece of bird cherry has been selected for the butt. All fellow members of Lumberjocks have to do is decide over the next day or so what design they would like to see incorporated in to th...

Hello again everyone I would like to ask another question on here since all the previous ones I have asked were answered and now I understand what I was doing wrong or what the case was. I am currently gathering materials needed to build a TableSaw Workstation that can be seen in the Shopnotes issue #89 The question for this series is what are some of your ways of cutting down large sheets of plywood or MDF and getting them squared up?? “Using a Benchtop size Table saw” I D...

5 Knives #3: Preparing the blanks

09-15-2012 09:14 AM by AJM | 3 comments »

Here are a few photo’s of how i prepared 2 of the blanks although the stainless steal blank broke the m6 die.hopefully i have a solution to this and it will no longer be an issue on the other 2 ss blanks.With the carbon blade i die’d the end first to fit an m6 nut. i use this to help keep the knife clamped together. I have heard stories of the epoxy lasting a few years and the knife then simply putting it . fall apart. i feel the nut at the end is a good way of helping this...
