A LumberJock offered to me a most wonderful gift. Some time in his shop.

07-31-2008 01:09 AM by Karson | 16 comments »

No it was not an offer of free wood. A posting on one of my blogs last night was a offer of most immense proportions. The offer was to allow me to use his shop and his time to work on a project for my wife. Here was his offer I immediately responded yes. The LumberJock was none other than our respected Lee Jesberger I mean here was a LumberJock that built 36 kitchens for one customer. Here was a LumberJock that built a $100,000 kitchen for another customer. He was allowing me to be h...

Facets, the Next Logical Step #1: How hard can it be to make a Dodecahedron?

12-12-2010 03:37 AM by shipwright | 16 comments »

The next box in the series Oops!, A Llittle Cabinetree, and now Facets is on the build. It had to be started because I’ve been obsessing too much on the finish of Cabinetree and in order to amuse myself between coats I had been so bored I had started making micro plywood and then micro boxes and banding. It had to stop.So the other day I started to think about what the next logical step would be keeping the theme and some of the aspects of the others but going a very different direction...

Art Nouveau Coffee Table #7: Tree & Water Reflections, Marquetry Practicing

05-04-2015 06:34 PM by Dennis Zongker | 16 comments »

For the marquetry I needed to figure out a few obstacles before starting the real marquetry for the top. This practice piece is 23” wide x 33” long, this ellipse is much smaller then the top at 60” x 80” The practice piece I simplified the design down to just one tree with the sky, grass, bank, sand, and water. So far it has taken me about three weeks to finally get to this stage and finishing the practice piece. Finding the right veneers and almost redrawi...

Hide Glue #2: Hide Glue Primer

01-28-2009 01:03 AM by David | 15 comments »

I am interested in hide glue for a number of reasons. The first of which is the “romance” of using a traditional method that has its foundations as far back as Ancient Egypt and the cabinet shops of Colonial America. I also appreciate the pace of using hide glue . . . slow while getting set-up and quick when applying the glue. I also like the reversibility of hide glue and the fact that it accepts stain and finish without leaving telltale glue marks like that pesky spot of PVA ...

A solid foundation to build a future - A New Workbench.

03-26-2009 08:14 PM by bfd | 15 comments »

It has been a while since I have been able to contribute much to Lumberjocks as life has been very hectic over the past few months. Anyway I have just embarked on my next project…building my own bench finally! I have been tossing ideas around for more then a year now. I have seen several examples of beautiful benches from many of you (Gary Sharp, Damian, John Ormsby and several others). I think I have read Lon Schleining’s The Workbench three times cover to cover and have change...

Adventures in Vacuum Veneering #1: Starting Out

12-20-2009 09:08 PM by SPalm | 15 comments »

Funny how things happen. I was cruising Craig’s List and spotted a guy selling a laboratory grade vacuum pump. I contacted him about it, and could it work for woodworking. He said no, but that he had some pumps that would work. I went over to his house which was only 4 miles away. He had four brand new pumps that he sold to me for $15 each. I found them on the web for $285 each. Woo Hoo. I sold two of them to guys at work, and kept two for myself. So I had to do a crash course in v...

Small Secretary With Tambour Door #12: Hardware and Final Assembly

03-29-2015 10:39 PM by Guy Dunlap | 14 comments »

It’s finally finished! In this video I perform the final assembly of the secretary. I install the tambours and handles, the backs, and the drawer hardware. Yes, I did end up going with the larger pulls. There were some very good points made about the larger and smaller pulls. However in the end, it boiled down to my beautiful wife making the final decision. A nice coat of wax and it’s complete! Thanks to everyone who watched and supported me during this build! As always, I welcome your com...

Book box

This is my attempt at a book box.Made with mahogany and pine. For the inlay I just used the table saw to make the grove.The hinges have taken up the most time but are very rewarding once they work properly. I will update the project as it progresses with photos.

Resawing wood and veneers #1: The Laguna Driftmaster Fence System

05-26-2008 03:20 AM by Karson | 14 comments »

Well I went ahead and did it. A woodworking e-mail blog stated that Laguna Driftmaster fence system for cutting veneers and I went to their web site and viewed the video. I’ve cut veneers and thin strips of wood before, but never with a lot of accuracy. The kitchen cabinets that I made in NJ was made with Ambrosia Maple that was sawed into 1/4” slices and sanded to 5.2MM. It was then installed into a metric plywood router bit set for stile and rails. I wanted to do something...
