In part 2 of the hall table build I finish cutting the aprons and then move onto cutting the last of the joinery with some through mortises. Plus I will show you how I taper the legs by making and using a tapering jig for the table saw. For weekly videos and content you wont find anywhere else visit:

Juniper Table Lamp w/ "double base" #3: Drilling holes for the cord

04-10-2008 05:01 AM by Tim & Candy Hicks | 2 comments »

Okay I had the lamp almost completely sanded before I was able to get the holes drilled. I myself have only drilled a few lamps so my husband helps out with this. It is not as easy as it seems, you have to make sure that you are aiming just right so you come out in the right spot so you end up through the bottom of the lamp. This first shot is of course the first hole that is being drilled, in the second shot you can see where the drill bit is coming out. Now starting at the exit hole w...

Beaver rehab #3: jointer finished and gone

02-15-2011 08:58 PM by JuniorJoiner | 2 comments »

well, a wonderful machine back in working condition, and off to a good home. This six inch Beaver jointer was a real eye opener to how well some of this old iron was designed and built. I did have some troubles along the way, the colour match paint was a no-go. I’m thankful I did not sand off all the old paint first, just a few parts. The paint did not apply very well, and took three days to cure. so I did not proceed with a repaint, just a few touch ups of bad or important spots. ...

Tray Table Tutorial #1: My Brother's Tray Table - measured drawings and instructions for construction

07-03-2011 10:19 PM by lightweightladylefty | 2 comments »

I was asked if I would share plans for the tray table I made for my brother. It actually took more time attempting to write these plans than it did to complete the tray table. I did not take any construction photos so I have used SketchUp scenes to try to illustrate the steps. Disclaimer: This is the plan which I made on SketchUp before making the tray. ( I didn’t follow it exactly since I found that I had already surfaced some stock to 5/8” and used it instead of 1/2” thickness.) It s...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #23: "And Now For Something Completely Different . . . ."

06-26-2010 01:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I love the days where you can’t wait to get up in the morning to get going. I am usually a morning person anyway, but even more so when I have some fun projects in the works. Lately I have been in a ‘why do I have to sleep at all?’ phase and I can’t say that is a bad thing either. Yesterday was a good day. In the morning I finished off printing the material for and packing up three projects and three articles to ship out to the magazine. If it were a perfect day,...

Selling Your Wood Work Tutorial #9: How to handle Objections

10-29-2011 07:38 AM by Michael1 | 2 comments »

DEALING WITH OBJECTIONS Part One Before I get into dealing with objections, I received a very good comment from fellow LJ thedude50 that is a very good and important point in closing the sale. When you present your closing statement, many times there will be a uncomfortable silence period. It may feel like several minutes, but rest assured you are nervous and it really is only a few seconds. Sometimes the prospect is ...

Roy Underhill’s Tip for Tightening Loose Hatchets

06-02-2014 07:39 PM by WoodAndShop | 2 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at In my above video I share a tip that Roy Underhill taught me about how to tighten my loose hewing hatchet’s head. A few months ago, while filming a DVD in his school, I took the opportunity to ask Roy a question that I couldn’t find an answer to. He shared his advice, and I’ve been eager to test it out. He taught me that even though I already had a wooden wedge I could add a second metal wedge (at a diagonal) to add extra ti...

Woodworking Knowledge #3: Etching Brasswork from Using Photocopies of Anything!

04-25-2008 03:14 PM by flink | 2 comments »

Hi There! I for one, really like the way brass looks with a rich background of mahogany or dark oak. I also love engraved brasswork. This morning as I drank my morning six-pack of diet coke, I was checking my regulars and came across a link to a person who does steampunk stuff and had a procedure to do brass etchings of anything you can photocopy. It’s relatively simple, and can be done with materials you can get at the borgs. Below is the photocopy “negative” (le...

Cold Bend Hardwood Jewlery Making

02-07-2013 06:43 AM by John Blunt | 2 comments »

Watch this video if you do any wood bending. The material is amazing! This video was made as a first step in learning and developing an extensive online video library for teaching purposes. I know it is a bit informal, lacks polish, and will be improved upon and I build the library. I hope you like it and are moved to advise me in return.
