Summers Woodworking Second Annual Bird House Contest. This is my humble entry. There are some very talented and creative folks entering this year! I had this hubcap that I purchased some time back for a few $ and this is what ended up happening. http://youtu.be/ELPT5kOQVvE Chris
Don’t be afraid of wood & water. Wood loves the stuff. Most of the tree is water when it’s standing. It’s why they’re so heavy when they come down. It’s all that water inside of them. Once I had a 1/2” thick maple table top, 20” square, all shaped and sanded. I decided to raise the grain and sand it off. Wet sanding I call it, although I wait for the water to dry and just sand off the fuzz raised up by it. Well I wet down this top and it cupped...

A friend of mine offered me an old dresser that they were throwing out, so I headed on down to fetch it. The dresser was old, but not handmade. The drawer fronts were curved and therefore no use to me. I saved the knobs though. Disassembling it I noticed a few oddities in its construction. The side panels, which are typically made of plywood are actually very thin boards. They are also flexible and somewhat delicate. The top might be one solid piece of wood, but with breadboard ends and a...
This blog is all about my work in my shop, detailing the trials and tribulations I experience there. I had been a woodworker, in the most peripheral sense, most of my life. Typical outport kind, I guess, building things with Dad out in the garage. I’ve built a significant portion of sheds, cottages, decks, installed windows, doors, siding, poured concrete, worked on asphalt, etc, etc, ad nausium. It’s all good though, Woodworking (as just one of my many hobbies) quiets a part of my soul that ...
My name is Robin Gosse, living in a (very) small town on the northern tip of the island-portion of the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. We are WAY out in the Atlantic ocean, farther East than New England region of the USA, well above 50 degrees of latitude. My wife and I recently bought a house with a huge garage, and I’ve begun the adventure of renovating it into a proper woodworking studio. Please visit my blog page and join in my adventure of home ownership, woodwor...
New to Lumberjocks. Wanting to learn how to work with wood and make useful things or at least something that looks cool. I have a mechanical design and drafting background and I usually use 3D solid modeling software to make models for use in creating drawing packages. What can I expect from this site?
I got involved building chairs with the Lumber to Legacy project in Albany, OR. Here’s the story in their local paper. Lumber to Legacy Some high schools kids helped us build this cafe chair design. I wrote to the paper explaining my involvement. “I wanted to respond further as to why I did this class for the kids. I love to teach and this was another opportunity to be with a group that doesn’t get the attention they deserve. Education in the applied arts is mostly for...
