Large variety of exotic hardwoods and wood working tools. Free for my fellow LJocks

12-27-2017 05:46 AM by kiara583 | 20 comments »

Helped a friend move from large house with fully equipped woodworking shop to a smaller home. The overwhelming task of packing a 3500 sq ft house plus shop was difficult. Ran out of storage room so everything else was to be thrown out. Thought it would be a shame to throw it away so I spent a week hoping someone would appreciate this treasure. Will post more pictures. Turning tools, large dust collector, drill press, saws etcs. Could sell but would rather share. I only have time invested ...

Desk Chairs #3: Spending time with my buddies Mortise and Tenon

12-23-2017 02:38 PM by EarlS | 3 comments »

After getting the FMT Pro mortise and tenon jig as an early Christmas present, I’ve been busy setting it up, figuring out how it works, and making the mortises and tenons for the Kevin Rodel side chairs. There are a total of 5 mortises on each rear leg, 3 on the inner face (crest rail, back rail, seat back rail) and 2 on the front face (seat side rail, side stretcher). The front legs also have 3 mortises, 2 on the rear face (seat side rail, side stretcher) and one on the inner face ...

Brynn's Desk Build #4: Overview of the build

12-17-2017 09:47 PM by BenhamDesign | 2 comments »

This writing desk is one of my favorite builds. Made from cherry, with spaltted maple for the side panels and drawer pulls. The drawer pulls are held in place with walnut posts for a little accent. If you are interested in the build process here is a little build video. I started out milling the legs and cutting them to length. Next, laying out the joinery and drawing in the curve I liked for the legs. It is way easier to cut all the joinery to before cutting the curves. This gives...

Desk Chairs #2: Chair Legs and the Leg Lamp Major Award

12-16-2017 02:50 PM by EarlS | 4 comments »

In the spirit of one of the greatest Christmas movies I present the Leg Lamp Major Award Inspirational isn’t it? Now on to wood related activities… First of all, the 4 chairs will be made from Walnut since I have an abundance of it in the wood stack, and I’m out of Cherry. After poring over the plans and reading and re-reading the booklet that comes with them as well as anything and everything I could find on Lumberjocks or elsewhere on the web I finally brok...

• Fr. Chad's Prie Dieu #14: Click … Swoosh

12-11-2017 08:07 PM by Ron Aylor | 9 comments »

Click … Swoosh - Before tackling the eight panel door, I thought I would give my newly made lamb’s tongue template a work out.  After locating the stopped chamfers with chalk, laying out the lamb’s tongue(s) was a breeze.  … not too shabby … if I say so myself!                 Aside from the cocobolo butterflies, these stopped chamfers and lamb’s tongues will serve to reference the Trinity without altering the over-all style.                 As I was thinking about the drawe...

Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #9: Finish work complete, ready for delivery

12-09-2017 02:16 AM by Reinan | 2 comments »

I coated this piece in a couple coats of 1# dewaxed garnet shellac, but I should have thinned them further for the top because I had streaking of patches that were coated more heavily than others, so I did a wash coat of straight alcohol and leveled the shellac to even it out. It worked, but then I had to deal with runs all over the edges and drips on the bottom lip. Next time I try that on a light colored wood I will build up with a less colored shellac and add the darker as a top coat for...

• Fr. Chad's Prie Dieu #13: Two Become One

12-06-2017 04:35 PM by Ron Aylor | 5 comments »

Two Become One –  I thought I would take advantage of the unseasonably warm weather and glue up the upper case. First I attached the barley twist accent pieces to the front frame with wood screws …                  … these pieces are proud of the frame by 3/8” as they overlap the side pieces.                 I applied the General Finishes Medium Brown Dye/Stain concoction to all the upper case pieces and once dry … glued it up!  The false bottom I mentioned in an earlier post cons...
