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

1357 days ago 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...

Hide Glue #2: Hide Glue Primer

2040 days ago 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.

1982 days ago 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

1713 days ago 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...

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

2287 days ago 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...

“I will see it when I believe it.” Dr. Wayne Dyer…Motivational author and speaker (1940 – ) There are many times while in the shop working on wood projects that we find a need of various woodworking jigs and then at times we also will have a need for an assortment of saw accessories. Sometimes we need to make a shop accessory while in the middle of our project and then again there are instances when our project is actually the building of a shop accessory. In eith...

Box making with Andrew Crawford in England

1199 days ago by RogerBean | 13 comments »

Last year I wrote a review here on LJ about my visit with Andrew Crawford in England. Andrew has made some of the finest boxes ever produced, and has turned some of his efforts to sharing his knowledge and methods with others. My three days with him last year were so productive and helpful that I decided to spend some more time with him this spring at his shop in Shropshire. Andrew’s shop is located in a nineteenth century converted barn on the historic Acton Scott farms site (sort o...
