Hand made Plane #1: Getting started

2343 days ago by GaryK | 15 comments »

First of all let me say that this is the first hand plane I have ever made. I looked at some plans to get the general idea, but basically I am making it up as I go. There are things I did wrong but I will be able to fix them. I saw this type of sole on some planes in magazines and always wondered how they did it.It took me a while but I figured it out. Simple once you know how. I got ahead of myself didn’t get started taking pictures until later so I kind of went back over some th...

Demilune table tops #1: Making Demilune Tables

2549 days ago by Lee A. Jesberger | 27 comments »

As you may have guessed, I make many of these tables. The practice is needed, and the combinations of woods make it very interesting. These were all made from the plexiglass templates shown. By using these templates, I can make these tops very quickly. I also have other shapes that are more complicated, which I’ll post at another time. Lee

Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #7: Tuesdays with Thos. Angle

2516 days ago by Douglas Bordner | 12 comments »

Off we go to the shop of Thomas Angle and his wife Carleen, in Jordan Valley, Oregon. Here he operates two businesses, Owyhee Design and Thos. Angle Saddlery. I asked Tom about the name of the wood business Owyhee. Named after the local mountains and river that brace his property, Owyhee when sounded out takes on a different slant.“In about 1812? Peter Skene Ogden came down the Snake River with a trapping brigade from the Hudson’ Bay Company post at Vancouver, Washington. He had t...

Building a Hanging Hand Tool Cabinet #1: Constructing the core of the cabinet and the doors

726 days ago by Andy Panko | 2 comments »

Earlier this year, I blogged here on LJ about building my Roubo workbench. As mentioned in that blog, prior to building the workbench, I wasn’t much into hand tools. Not because I had anything personal against them, but instead because I was always in the process of building out my power tool collection. My power tool arsenal is effectively complete at this point, and I have since mastered the basic uses and methods of each of those tools. I decided it was time to start doing more w...

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

2341 days ago 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...

How I did it . . . #1: The Dresser

1002 days ago by Jacquelyn Smith | 6 comments »

Design to Conception Are you interested in doing inlay, veneer, designing and building a project on your own? Here’s an example of a job I designed and built for a client last year. I already had a blog (perfect45degree.blogspot.com/) before discovering LJ. My guess is that most clients probably aren’t very interested in how I build other projects, only theirs. Given the community here, I thought I’d try writing about how I came to design and build the tünr (pronounced “tune-r”) dresser. ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #137: Almost There

1362 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

I am quite proud of how things worked out yesterday. It feels wonderful when things actually work out how they are supposed to. I spent the day cutting for the most part and by 4pm I had not one but two new trays cut out. When I was writing about it yesterday morning, I was wondering if I would be able to accomplish it. After the Wright tray taking so long, my confidence in myself was a bit shaken. Not in the sense if I was able to do it or not but in the time line. Both patterns went...

Sapele box with lid turned on the lathe

884 days ago by Brett | 3 comments »

Hi Jocks, here is a video of a box that I turned on the lathe. It is made from sapele, an African hardwood. It’s not a how to, I don’t claim that in any of the videos that I have made, but it is more like just watching someone else work their project. I just wanted to share this with all of you that may enjoy watching woodworking videos, like I do. Thanks for watching!

Hand made Plane #2: Finishing it up!

2342 days ago by GaryK | 12 comments »

Now to finish it up. Here is an area that I screwed up on. When I opened up the throat I did both angles. I should have onlydone the side that the iron rests on. Doing the other side will make it wear out being so thin. I shouldhave cut that side straight down at 90 degrees. But I can easily fix that by adding an insert. Here I clamped the sides on the help guide the chisel. Laying the chisel flat againse the angled part madeit real easy to cut. ..I kept cutting the leading block sh...

Sweet Chest of Drawers Build #3: The frame and panel sides

590 days ago by Kyle | 3 comments »

My Dad came and visited me back in June and he helped me get started on this. I bought the porter cable router 7518 and a nice big raised panel bit to go with it. I thought I would start by building the panel first and then the frame around it. The reason I did it this way was because I didn’t want to go and buy more and more wood without using what I had so I took two of my more wider boards, cut them in half lengthwise, and edge jointed them to make two panels. I don’t have any ...
