“I have finished designing and I have just begun the production of a new furniture piece, a dining table and chairs. This dining set will be similar to the “Griffin Table” that I made over four years ago. I posted the finished end table here on Lumberjocks. “If you would like to see it here is the link to the Griffin Table For the dining table I have made a few design changes to the legs and to the marquetry to the top of the dining table.

The Masters of Woodturning.

01-02-2013 06:21 PM by PASs | 1 comment »

I somehow stumbled across this interesting article.Woodturnings By The Masters For Sake Of ComparisonIt certainly made me feel better as I’m always my own worst critic.I hope you enjoy this perspective as well. Which reminds me of the first coin holder I ever sold.I considered it my worst piece, it was some junky dunnage I’d thrown together on an experimental whim.There was even obvious glue smear available.It sold within a couple of hours.Go figure.

Hey guys and girls. For those of you who did not read my “Intro,” I am currently attending a traditional boat building school in Washington. We started our program with some small beginning projects such as some joint practice pieces, a few hand made tools, and a tool box. We then did some drafting and lofting, and have now finely made it to building our very first boat.This is my groups 11’ Monk skiff, which we lofted and modified a bit. So fare its all Honduran Mahogany an...

Norse Inspired Plane #1: Jointing Plane

12-12-2012 01:39 AM by deutschman | 7 comments »

Hey guys and girls. I’d like to share the first bit of progress on the jointing plane I am working on. Its inspired by this plane a saw while researching Norse boat building tools. Mine is made out of Cocobolo with two pieces of Oak glued to the sides. I just got the shape roughed out today, and am still thinking about what I want the finished product to look like. Do I want to go all fancy and put the horse heads on it, or just keep it simple and functional. Right now I am leaning towa...

Hello, My name is Jeremy (firm cyber hand shake). This is my first blog entry for my account here at LumberJocks. Short intro. Please excuse my spelling.

Work Bench #1: What parts of a work bench are most important?

11-25-2012 04:31 PM by sandhill | 10 comments »

Now that I have finished the CHEVALET I need desperately to get the work bench done so here are my questions and thoughts. I have glued up half of the top and made two of the stretchers then the question came up do I use “Bench Bolts” or just use “mortise & tenons”? If the bench does not come apart why use bolts? “Exposed Wedged Through Tenons” if done correctly will do the same job at no cost where bench bolts are about $20.00 for a set of four and if you have them on the rails and stre...

Making a Cello #8: Flattening the Rib Assembly

11-15-2012 09:42 PM by PhiltheLuthier | 1 comment »

Before the major work of today there was some minor repair to do. One of the joints between a C rib and lining was not up to snuff. Exhibit A: To fix this I soaked some paper towel in water and laid it on the offensive joint in order to soften the glue. After a long while soaking I squeezed it a few time with my fingers to get it moving, then clamped it up again; the result being something much more acceptable. Once dry the flattening begins. First with a block plane to bring...
