The clock story.

12-08-2014 01:34 AM by AKDave | 1 comment »

A few years ago I saw plans for a clock that I rally liked and have wanted to build ever since. So, about a month ago, I decided that it was finally time to do it. Needing Christmas presents for my four adult kids and their families, I decided to make 5, one for each kid and one for myself. So, even though I was already into two projects, (two more commissioned caskets) and I don’t really like to do different projects concurrently, I started on them. Being big on symbolism and wanted t...

Tool Chest #2: Starting the Shell

05-02-2012 02:44 AM by CartersWhittling | 13 comments »

Hello. I happened to have little work today, so I had time to do some work on the tool chest. A few weeks ago I had skip planed all the parts for the shell, and some of the oak. Skip planing is simply using a heavy set plane to remove the twist and warpage in a board. Thats all. You do not use a try plane or smoother at this point. By skip planing the lumber before hand, the lumber has a second chance to warp if it has to, since there was fresh wood removed from both faces. Now a...

Tool Chest #1: Design and Materials

01-17-2012 08:06 PM by CartersWhittling | 10 comments »

Hello. I have decided to start work on my new chest tool. I am not sure when I will get around to starting the build, but I have got the design and materials ready for when it comes time to begin. I bought the book by Chris Schwarz “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest” back in the early parts of summer http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=67610&cat=1,46096,46109. I have always enjoyed reading his blog and when my friend told me about the premise of the book I though...

How to finish a log bed? No, Really...How do I finish it?

05-02-2011 06:22 PM by robbinscabin | 31 comments »

Since we’ve started a business, North Country Rustics (find me on Facebook) we’ve been very busy but we’ve also tried to take our projects to a new level. We’ve made several log beds (eventually, we even began making the bed frames from log~even though I wimped out on my son’s bed) but we are currently working on our first log bed for sale. The queen sized bed is really our best work yet but we’re stumped when it comes to how we should finish it. We re...

White Pine Log Cabin

08-23-2010 11:44 PM by Mike Chapman | 23 comments »

On July 10, 2010 I began to build my log hunting cabin. It starts with harvesting blown down white pine. We had a horrendous wind storm two years ago that left millions of board feet of timber in ruins. We put some it to good use. Go to my website and navigate to “Work-In-Progress”. There you will see the White Pine hunter’s cabin being created from logs, to lumber, to rough cabin, and finally, to finished cabin. I’m building the log cabin right outside of my woo...

My Roubo Build #7: Some Considerations Along the Way, or a Cry for Help

05-17-2010 06:55 AM by naomi weiss | 18 comments »

As i have been building this thing, i have had my nose in the Schwarz’s book. However, i cringed when during my review i read this: Once you look at the characteristics that make a species good for a workbench, you see that white oak, Southern yellow pine, fir, poplar or just about any species (excepting bass wood and the soft white pines) will perform brilliantly. (p.14) And for some salt in the wound: Anyone who has purchased a white pine 2×4 bench from a home center can...

My Roubo Build #1: Getting the Lumber

03-18-2010 10:42 AM by naomi weiss | 9 comments »

So it’s finally happened! Of course, the day before i read that the Schwarz is coming out with another workbench book, this one more hand-tool-apartment-dweller-friendly, but no matter :-/.The lumber has been ordered and picked up. I know it’s premature to thank ppl for helping me build a workbench when all i have is a pile of lumber, so for now, i suppose i would like to mention that there are two people without whom i could not have a pile of lumber that is hopefully soon to be ...
