A Home of Generations

05-07-2010 05:55 PM by Troy | 4 comments »

In the early 1900’s, a quirky woman from the Yukon Territory required that her suitor provide her a “dream home” if he had hopes of relocating her to Fairbanks, Alaska. That was all the motivation Author Williams needed to order a catalog kit home for his love, Lucille. He ordered it from the west coast and a sternwheeler delivered it to Fairbanks in 1916. The home’s earliest distinctions include the first oak floors and stone masonry fireplace in the city. Since then, the home endured nearly...

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

02-22-2014 04:43 PM 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:...

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....

Picked up a S Biggin & Sons backsaw on the e place, it is in transit as we speak. Can’t find much info on this company or saw. I want to know how rare it is and if it can be dated. Any thoughts or critique of the saw? Thanks.

Santa Bottle Stoppers

10-16-2011 05:16 PM by Amcarver | 3 comments »

This year’s Christmas Gifts will consist of a bottle of wine and one of these hand carved bottle stoppers. Each one will be a little different but all will be holding a bottle of wine (some hidden behind them) and all will appear a little tipsy. I am carving as many as I can before Christmas. I’ll paint them as a group just before the big day.

Refreshing basic skills #1: Remembering how to cut dovetails

04-01-2011 05:56 AM by David Kirtley | 5 comments »

I have been reading other people’s posts on hand cut dovetails and I thought about it and realized that I have not actually hand cut a dovetail in a long time. For those that don’t know, I have been getting myself set up again for woodworking and it has been nearly 20 years since I had a workshop. Most of my time and effort has been getting tooled up again and I can say now that I have what I want to work with. The last phase of acquisition was getting saws. To start with, I g...

Hand Tool Ramblings #3: The Anarchists Bug Out Box

12-24-2013 04:55 AM by rustythebailiff | 4 comments »

Living here in sunny FLA, we don’t have to worry about ice and snow. But, we do get the occasional tornado. And hurricanes are not unheard of. So, as my hand tool collection has grown over the years, it suddenly occurred to me that if I had to flee from impending natural disaster, it would take me a good hour to gather up my precious hand tools. Now, not to downplay the importance of my power tools, but they are easier to replace than some of my vintage hand tools. So, after watc...
