10 Steps to Getting Started in Traditional Woodworking with Hand Tools #2: |Step 1| Understand & Buy the Right Hand Tools

104 days ago by WoodAndShop | 6 comments »

1.1 Which Hand Tools Do You Need? After woodworking for several years, conducting “research”, and attending Roy Underhill’s Woodwright’s School, I’ve compiled three lists of hand tools: (1) urgent (what you need to get started), (2) semi-urgent (what you need to do more than just basic projects), and (3) non-urgent (improves convenience, tools for advanced projects, or items that are fun to have, but not vital). Used vintage hand tools are better in most cases (and less expensive), alth...

My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #16: New Product Line! *Scroll Saw Puzzles*

108 days ago by Ethan Harris | 4 comments »

Hello All, Just found some time to send an update to Lumber Jocks. Spud Woodworks is growing once more, this time I have launched a new product line! I acquired a NEW in the box 1995 Delta Scroll Saw on Ebay… That’s right, I couldn’t believe it when I came across it! And it is beautiful and works amazingly. Anyhow, I decided to start making wood puzzles and I designed my first set of them to begin selling. I also added some walnut and maple blocks to my wooden blocks p...

Workbench #4: The Finale

116 days ago by john2005 | 24 comments »

I will mostly post pics in this one. By now, if you have followed at all you have gathered that I suck at blogging. A writer I will never be. Some technical data. Final dimensions are 81 1/2” long, 27 1/4” wide and 35 1/5” tall. Species are Walnut and Birch. Pulled off the double through tenons, albeit not perfectly. Nothing a few little wedges couldn’t fix. I feel the bench to be a good reflection of me. A little unusual, not too crazy, has some flaws, functi...

Cherry Nightstand #3: Raised Panels for the Sides

153 days ago by Todd | 2 comments »

Rather arbitrarily I chose to make the side panels for the nightstand first. Actually it is only the second set of raised panels that I have done so I was kind of nervous and wanted to get them out of the way. For the rail and stiles I used “Sommerfeld’s Roundover Chip-Free Rail & Stile Set”. This rail & stile design eliminates chipping that is caused by a buildup of stress on the leading edges of the pattern. You can see in the pics below how the leading eadge i...

Cherry Nightstand #2: Acquiring, sorting, and preparing wood

156 days ago by Todd | 1 comment »

I’m very fortunate to have a sawyer close by that caters specifically to hobbyists. These are very knowledgable and nice folks. Shameless plug: Hobby Hardwood Alabama Here is a photo of the first batch of rough sawn cherry I chose: I recently reconfigured and upgraded my dust collector http://lumberjocks.com/projects/95715 which worked out great because I jointed and planed most of this wood in preparation for this build. This picture shows how well the thien baffle worked:...

Cherry Nightstand #1: Introduction and Design

156 days ago by Todd | 0 comments »

I’m in the process of designing and building a cherry nightstand to match our bedroom suite. I’m going to try and preserve the style of the furniture while remaining within my skill level. I’m actually pretty far into the build now and since I’ve taken some pictures along the way I thought I would blog the process. I’ll try to post an entry for each step as time permits. The design of the nightstand took into account the style of our current bedroom suite i...
