How To Make Segmented Lidded Boxes Using Milk Container Tops.

12-19-2011 10:35 AM by Grumpy | 10 comments »

I recently posted a project called “Milk Bottle Tops & Scrap Wood”, http://lumberjocks.com/projects/57351 There was some interest in the concept & some of you requested a blog on how they were done.So I thought I should get on with it before I forgot the whole process. LOLThe whole idea started from a need to cut down on all the scrap pieces of wood and composite material lying around in the shed.We all have those bits that we won’t throw out. They will come in ha...

The Maloof Library Series #10: Maloof Inspired Sculpted Table project - Pixar meets woodworking

12-19-2011 03:00 AM by ScottMorrison | 10 comments »

This is a small sample of my new woodworking project video, “Building a Maloof Inspired Sculpted Table.” Templates and video available for pre-order at finewoodworker.com. It is a totally new, and never before seen, type of video project (and pretty darn cool, if I do say so myself). Think Pixar meets woodworking. Completely 3D and presented with amazing details and animation that leave no room for error in your project. Everyone who has built one of my chairs (or any cha...

Handscrew Clamps #1: Get a handle on it..

12-18-2011 09:15 PM by jeth | 3 comments »

Hello all, I thought I’d post a short blog on the handscrew clamps I have just made. I was short on clamps for extra cauls on some laminated panels I am working on, as usual i didn’t find what I need on sale here so I had to knock something together. I won’t be posting all the details of the construction as the design is based on danriffles project here... (Thanks Dan :)As I don’t have a lathe, or a source of hardwood dowels, or time at this moment to build the ro...

Grinder Sculpting #2: design and layout

12-18-2011 07:46 PM by JoeyG | 16 comments »

First lets start with the work horses. I picked these up at Klingspore. It’s my local woodworking shop but I have also gotten them from the box stores. These are 50 and 80 grit. I will use the 80 on this project. The mahogany should be soft enough for it. I want to do one in purpleheart soon so I picked up the 50. If you haven’t worked with purpleheart, it is one hard wood, but that is a blog for another time. LOL. Here you see that I laid out a simple grid pattern over ...

Grinder Sculpting #1: the box

12-17-2011 05:57 AM by JoeyG | 5 comments »

Hello again everyone. I had such a great time doing the last blogs, I just had to do another. This as the name states, will be about sculpting a box with a right angle grinder. I have began using this method after seeing Andy’s and Gary’s wonderful, sculptures that we like to call boxes. I saw it and just new it was something I wanted to get good at. Some people look at chip carving or the spirit in the tree, I saw how with just a little grinding on a straight grain board th...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #6: OUR BEST EPISODE YET- If I do say so myself...

12-16-2011 10:21 PM by StumpyNubs | 22 comments »

If you haven’t seen the show yet, this may be the episode to start with. It’s fast moving, introduces a great project, and features the twisted sense of humor that makes Stumpy Nubs videos unique. This week the workshop finds itself designing a clamp rack that will hold 48 clamps in just 3X2’ of wall space. Then Stumpy reviews “stretchy tape” (whatever that is…) And finally (my favorite part) Stumpy tries to figure out how to get out of trouble wit...

nut cracker #1: School daze

12-16-2011 11:29 AM by BigTiny | 7 comments »

Greetings all. First, let me apologize for my protracted absence hereabouts. Health troubles, both my own and my wife’s, have left me little time for the web and my wood working family here at LJ. Ms Debby has suggested to me that I do a class some time in the new year on doing that familiar symbol of Christmas (at least to opera fans), the “toy soldier” style nut cracker. Now let’s get something straight right off the bat here. If I do take this on, it will...
