lumberJONZ ( LumberJocks of New Zealand ) – ok, a small contingent anyway – got together for some fun with my new mill, a Peterson ATS swingmill portable sawmill. On a fine winter day, we hitched up the mill tucked into a 7×5 trailer and set it up around a short section of Paulownia on a small farm just outside Christchurch. The tree had been felled a couple of years earlier and mainly what was left was a short section off of the stump and a single trunk section. This was our...
Now that the sides are sized and cut to length, it is time for cutting feet and marking up to get ready for dados, rabbits and dovetails (dados, rabbits and dovetails, oh my! Sorry Dorthy.). The feet of the cupboard are cut into the sides and two lower front stiles. Notice that the “front” foot is slightly narrower than the “rear” foot. This 3/4” difference will be made up by the stile after it is attached. I drew the shape I wanted on some scrap 1/8”...
Editing photos has always been regarded as something best left to advanced geeks and professionals. It seems to me, though, that everybody with a camera, a computer and an Internet connection should be able to get some personal satisfaction from this “advanced” technique. It isn’t hard to do, but you will need to give it your attention, especially at first until you get some experience with it. Don’t let that bother you. You’ve learned to operate woodworking t...
Sorry I’m late.. but alot has been going on. Jumping back in Today were making the TOP… Only cut what you can glue up (trust me on this, Movement will kill you (and me I had to add 2 more sticks after I tossed several I just cut last weekend that did the Watusi on me and I decided it was cheaper to just spend another 16 bucks and get a pair of 10’ start over pieces) So, The Glue really needs to dry for at least 4 hours. On a good weekend I can really only make a pa...

Next step is to make the ends of the segments curved. Shell-like if you want.For that we need a new jig.. Yeah I know some of you haven’t finished the first one..!This is ultra simple.Firstly a fresh piece of ply .. 1/4 ” is fine.I inserted a bearing to make this more durable .. same same as last one.This was positioned 4.5 ” from the end[centred on the width] and an arc cut on the end via the circle cutting jig.. same same.Cut two fences same as the one of the first jig ...
You will need 12 pieces of timber roughly 5’’ by 12’’ whatever thickness you want. [ I milled mine to 5/8”]The first one I made was PH and SA—6 of each.Place timber in the jig and cut the first arc.Move the piece into the fence, clamp and make the second arc cut. Repeat 12 times.Glue it up and cut it into a circle.Put on a little tung oil finishThats about It.
I’ve been thinking about this for quite a while, and was waiting for the right moment to get this going. After talking about it with several of you MA residents, and getting a good vibe from you guys. I think it’s time we make it official: Lumberjocks of New England Picnic Day Aiming date – 2nd weekend of Sept – when the weather is a bit less humid, and more convenient. based on weather – this might be changed to 3rd weekend if needed. Location – S...

I had a client who bought a High end coffee table.($2750.00), turned out to be to big for the room. She loved the table but it just would not fit in the room and there was nowhere else to put it(the house was already packed, down sized from a bigger house). She asked ” Could you cut it down somehow”? ” Some how” I said? “You know to make it smaller”. “Maybe” I said. I explained I could not make any Guarantees, but that I woul...
