Roubo from a weed, or how I have come to hate red oak

1288 days ago by Jon Spelbring | 3 comments »

Like many jocks out there, I’m in the process of building a new workbench. It will be pretty close to the Roubo that Chris Schwarz built, but sadly, my top will not be made out of pretty (if punky) cherry. No, I was fortunate(?) to have a supply of very thick red oak planks to work with. The top is made up of 3 pieces at 7.5” wide by 4” thick by 7’ long. It’s a beast! The legs are from the same stock, trimmed to 3”x5”. I’ve finished cutt...

Project on a whim #1: Getting started

2357 days ago by Les Hastings | 4 comments »

I was at the shop this morning finishing up some alder columns that ship out to Ventura, Ca. on Monday and on a whim a project came to mind. I messed up one of the columns while I was making them (got the diameter to small). So I had to remake it since I needed four to go to California. I started thinking about what I could do with this chunk of alder. I figure I might as well use it for something since I have it, right? The post on the far left is the one I’ll be using. I’ll have...

705 days ago by Julian | 1 comment »

Just starting on a new project; end table for the living room. Started with a design from Woodsmith magazine and made some changes in size and design. First made a prototype leg out of mahogany. Next step will be to figure out what type of finish to use. Will post a sketch of the end table next time.

Woodworking book: Woodwork Joints

2042 days ago by Praki | 5 comments »

There are quite a few internet resources for old books on woodworking. I love reading them as they have all sorts of wonderful tips. I came across one such book, quite by accident, on scribd.com. It is probably available in other places as well. http://www.scribd.com/doc/2378054/Woodwork-JointsHow-they-are-Set-Out-How-Made-and-Where-Used-by-Fairham-William I leafed through it (virtually of course, lol) and found a gem right away. The author makes a point about shooting boards and says t...

The Non-Electric Chair #1: A daydream, a tool chest and a blue shed

2188 days ago by lethentymill | 1 comment »

I set myself the project of making a chair from a tree without the use of electricity or machine tools around a year and a half ago – and recorded some of my thoughts as I did so. Since joining LJs, I felt that others might like to read my ‘story’ of the non-electric chair. The story is still ongoing; additional video clips and images can also be found here A DAYDREAM, A TOOL CHEST AND A BLUE SHED I don’t remember which came first – the fantasy or the tool chest...

BUDDY'S AND FRIENDS

404 days ago by kiefer | 14 comments »

Well Thursday ended on a good note because of this .When I got home from work tired as usual I noticed the mail on the counter and there was this thicker then normal envelop among the envelops .My curiosity made me open that envelop first and it was a little bevel gauge made by Paul (Shipwright ) with a wonderful letter from Paul .Paul patterned this gauge after one that he used during his working years along many other tools and I had noticed it in a blog of his and commented that I wish th...
