Triple Chaos #1: A CBG Called Amália, the making of

12-22-2014 09:00 PM by Serradura | 4 comments »

Well, technically it’s not a cigar-box guitar because the (new) box was made for 3 small sample bottles of booze, Port to be precise. The name Amália has everything to do with a Portuguese Fado-guitar being the inspiration for this build. More detailed pictures on Triple Chaos

Curved front hall table #1: The tapered legs

12-20-2014 04:07 AM by exelectrician | 11 comments »

After completing my hanging tool cabinet build I decided to push myself to attempt some sort of inlay work coupled with curved wood. This table in No 77 of Woodsmith Magazine caught my eye and I decided to have a go at it. Here are the results so far. In this posed photo I have the sled I made for this project, with the tapered on four sides leg. the rabbets cut on the top and bottom take the contrasting dark wood (sapele) 1/8” inlays. Then 1/4” rabbets are cut on all four cor...

Treasure Box - Series #2 - Post #15: Inside of the box "Frisage" (parquetry)

12-11-2014 10:18 PM by Patricelejeune | 11 comments »

After almost a month away in Europe, London and France, I am back and working on the boxes again. It was really nice to go back home as I haven’t been able to do so for 4 years. It was also nice to be back, through away the jacket and sweater, an put on the flip flops. Well, regarding the boxes. When I came back I put the already cut bone leaves in green dye and while waiting to feel up the holes in the marquetry, I started working on the inside of the boxes....

Oak Leaves Dining Table #1: Carving the Legs

12-04-2014 08:06 PM by Dennis Zongker | 24 comments »

Every once and a while as a craftsman, a job will find you which will give you new life and inspiration. Also bringing out the best of your abilities as a craftsman. It isn’t easy finding someone that likes you own individual style as a furniture maker where you can build pieces that you have only dreamed of building someday for someone. It has been kind of a slow year and I never dreamed that this one person would just walk in my business and request pieces of such intricate detail ...

The Bar #1: The Bar to man cave

11-29-2014 09:58 AM by Nighthawk | 2 comments »

11 months ago it was decided we would have new years on our new deck that was only built a month before. So we decided on the spur of the moment to build a bar From there the bar seems to have taken on a life of its own. It no longer an out door bar, it is fully enclosed and water proofed... which in it self was a challenge once was water proofed we got power added so the bar fridge and TV, lights and accessories. The french doors we made at my work and got them installed once they went up...

Thorsen House Cabinet #1: Project Overview

11-24-2014 01:51 PM by EläväPuu | 2 comments »

Hello everybody! </drnick> This is my opening post on Lumberjocks with a new project which I have seen done several times previously. I can squarely lay the blame for this one on Joe McGlynn, whose own derivation of the Thorsen House dining room cabinet planted the seed for my own attempt. I’m aiming to document my thought processes and decision-making through this blog, so hopefully it should bring something new to the table other than snapshots of work in progress. As of writing...

My Workbench #1: Initial "Finished" Product

11-20-2014 08:25 PM by Dirk Van Essendelft | 9 comments »

I am a woodworker, an engineer, a maker, and a tinkerer. I built myself a workbench that height adjustable and completely solid that will last for generations. The full project description is here. But if your like me, you will find that a project, though completed, is never really done. I started this blog to document my starting point for any modifications and upgrades I do to the bench. See a video of the project by clicking here if you don't have flash or watch below:

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1447: Slow and Steady

11-19-2014 11:44 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am the first to admit that I am not a fast worker. Be it painting, scroll sawing, sewing or anything else, I find that it usually takes me quite a bit longer than the average person to accomplish most things.I also admit that it used to bother me, but as I get older, it doesn't seem to do so as much anymore. As we accumulate large quantities of what we are making, adding to the pile just seems to . . . well . . . add to the pile and sometimes I feel that things lose their 'spec...
