All I have to say is that the rack is up and it is going to create a TON of free space, especially that wall! I am going to be able to get a lathe in there some day instead of having a mess of sheet goods! I added extra storage above the rack too. I have a place to sticker lumber now! Please take a look and leave your comments to let me know what you think!
This is my entry into the Christmas Ornament Challenge put on by Alan Stratton and Carl Jacobson. This is the third annual challenge and I ma amazed at the beautiful ornaments folks have made! This idea came to me as I have made toys quit a bit in the past and I thought just make a version of an airplane that is smaller. Proportions were determined mostly on the fly and are just approximations of what should look good. Much of what I did I had in my head and I made the first piece then fit ...
I finally past that stinking kidney stone. I was out of work for 2 weeks because of this thing. I passed it Friday afternoon, so now I feel pretty normal now. It just aches now, the pain is manageable. I imagine that it will take a few more days to feel completely better. Anyhow, after 2 weeks off, I was able to get in the shop today and do a bit of work. (Admittedly, I tried while I was off work because I was bored out of my mind, but I could only stand for about 20 minutes, so that ...
It all starts with the growing and cutting of a tree. Here’s a short video about that subject: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9M2tMFshLm0
Hello all! We run a 100% reclaimed wood mill in Irvington, NJ. We could use another hand in the shop & We’re looking to see if you or a talented woodworker you know is looking for work in the NY/NJ area. We’re hoping the knowledgeable members of Lumberjocks can help us with a good recommendation. Reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you!
So far I have covered the basic case construction. Next we need to add the back panel and make the dust frame (or web frame) for the drawer. This will also serve as the installation point for the upper knife hinge. So, I started by gluing up a 1/4” panel of Sapele for the back, using the router bit as a guide for the final thickness. Next, we can cut the groove in the case pieces to accept the panel. I am using a 1/4” straight bit and cutting 3/16” deep. We don’t...
Alright, lets get started. The goal today was to get the case dry fit, and that means cutting the mitered edge dovetails. here is what the goal is: The point of this joint is to get a nice through dovetail, without the butt joint in the front. I want the nightstand to be mitered on both the front and back of the case, so we have 16 miters to cut. We’ll start with our panels glued up, flattened and cut to final size: Now, with a marking gauge set for the panel thickness...
I’ve been searching for powerful CAD/CAM software that is affordable/free. I finally found it in Fusion 360 from Autodesk. They offer a full featured parametric 3D modeling software with integrated CAM. The integrated CAM makes the CAM parametric to the geometry as well. Currently, there is only a single product in the family which is free for personal/hobby use (yes legally). The full featured version is $300/year now. Come November 8, 2014, they will be offering a standard version ...
From Top to Bottom: Reed Diffuser (made in China) – where else(qty 3) hand-carved Long Sweet Acacia ChopStickin’sOnly reason I chose to show the “man-made” one was to show how close I could come to achieving a strait result. I cut the in this case small limbs of the Acacia tree, I scraped the bark off, the tape the stick to a “strait stick” I know there are a few “kinks” in them but that is what makes this project more changeling, in time I h...
