Fuming a Small Box With Household Ammonia #1: After Four Days of Exposure

09-18-2014 12:49 AM by Roger Kimmel | 8 comments »

The box hasn’t darkened appreciably over the past two days, so I put in fresh ammonia in a slightly bigger saucer to give it more surface area. Here’s a funny thing. It felt like the box was damp to the touch. The lid just lies in a rabbet in the sides, and the wood had swollen so much that it was jammed in tight! It really has been picking up moisture. I don’t know if this is due to the fuming reaction, or if it is just a consequence of having the box suspended ove...

techniques #5: Greasemonkey script: Flickr LumberJockifier

03-30-2010 11:48 AM by Gary Fixler | 5 comments »

Something that’s always important to me is efficiency. I’m a weird mix of lazy and hardworking. I’ll spend 10 hours coding up something that will save me days of work later, mostly because I get bored of having to do the same steps over and over again. I post a lot of pictures here on LumberJocks, and my method is usually to pop off a tab with Flickr in it, move that new window to a separate monitor, then in my new post back in the first window type !()!: on its own line whe...

Woodworking with Abrasives - Provocative Teaser Article by Andrew Crawford in British Woodworking

06-17-2011 08:54 PM by Steven Davis | 3 comments »

I found out about Andrew Crawford via an article somewhere here at Lumerjocks. For those who don’t know, he is a master box maker. I joined his mailing list at and just received his newsletter with a link to his article “A Riddle in the Sand”. Very, very interesting. In the article, Mr. Crawford argues that abrasives have evolved rapidly in recent decades and should be part of the toolkit of any woodworker, not just for finishing and p...

Upholstering 2 Chairs For My Living Room #5: A little body stitching.

01-26-2014 02:19 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 9 comments »

There is very little on these chairs that I need to sew on the body. Still, a little might be just enough of an example for some of you. The front of the chair and deck need a bit of sewing. Take a look at this rounded front edge and the old stiches. There are several ways to skin this cat. One is to take off the fabric, undo the stitches then trace the cutouts onto you new fabric. I have to do that sometimes. Let’s get a little adventurous. Since I have a pattern with a center...

Keeping up with your glasses

07-11-2015 11:32 PM by poospleasures | 8 comments »

I have to use reading glasses for many tasks in the shop. I do not wear them except for close up stuff or if the area is a little dark, they were always somewhere out of reach as all my shirts do not have pockets. Now the idea. Use two rare earth magnets one inside and one out side located about where the pocket would be. These will hold your glasses very securely and will catch and hold them if you just get them close. Of course the stems or other parts must be metal which will attract a ma...
