I am not afraid to reference a blog post from my first week! Nor am I afraid to strive for greater accuracy in my cuts. After sanding the 2×4s to within 2.54 centimeters of their life, I made my marks and cut four friendly nineteen inch pieces. Though I am much better at using my Japanese hand saw, I am no ‘Aki Haruki’, mostly beca...

Solid Wood Door glue-ups / Tips and Techniques

1628 days ago by KnotWright | 6 comments »

One of the best things about Lumberjocks is that an individual can be exposed to so many different ways to do the same task.

This way might not be the most efficient or productive, but it does get the job done. My question for everyone is how do you do the following task: I”...

Lumber Storage

1628 days ago by kosta | 3 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to talk about lumber storage. Most woodworkers have a lumber rack you almost never see a shop without a lumber rack either in the main part of the shop or outside. I have never used a lumber rack just because I have never had enough wall space. The problem with lumber racks is that to get to 1 board you really have to move a lot of other boards. Some lumber racks are 7 ft off the ground. If your up on a ladder moving 15 lb boards around that kinda sucks. Its not...

Double Dovetail Box #6: The End

1632 days ago by Don | 5 comments »

The box is almost done. First thing I did today was cut the top to fit. I inititially cut it the same size as the box but decided to cut it a bit smaller so that the corners would show through which I thought gave it a nicer look. I also rabbited the under side of the top a bit to hold it in place. I generallly like lift off lids better than hinged lids for a couple of reasons: I think the metal of a hinge can distract from the beauty of the wood, and I’m too lazy to go buy the hinges. ...
