Help out a new woodworker

03-08-2014 01:27 AM by mptap | 10 comments »

Hello to all lumberjocks! As the title says, I am pretty new to woodworking. I have a lot of questions about techniques, tools, and ideas for projects. It seems as one question gets answered another one peaks my interest. Right now I am interested in getting and learning how to use hand tools for joinery, planing, and the like. I don’t have a planer or really any good hand tools yet (I borrow my grandfather’s tools, but even his are limited in the hand tool department). My firs...

When a woodworker wants to make applesauce...

10-20-2013 05:20 PM by CueballRosendaul | 7 comments »

My neighbor had an apple tree loaded with fruit so I decided to make applesauce and can it for the winter. Since I don’t have one of those crank apple peelers, I decided to make my own power peeler with the drill and a spade bit. I clamped the cordless drill down to the counter, and used a spade bit to hold the apples. I went through this full bag of apples in about 45 minutes. Watch the YouTube Video!

The Daughter of a Woodworker - My First Woodworking Experience

03-15-2013 02:52 PM by Chris Mobley | 8 comments »

My daughter wrote this article for my website and I thought I would share it with you all! Written By: Bonnie Bartay Some of my favorite memories as a young kid are spending time with my dad in his workshop. From a very young age, I remember playing in his shop while he worked. As an adult, I have helped my father with his construction business and now with Chris Mobley Designs. I do all of the paperwork part and even draw out plans but he does the real magic. I have never actually done...

The Old Woodworker

01-01-2013 07:54 PM by WoodGoddess | 3 comments »

I am constantly amazed at the beauty I find here on Lumberjocks. It’s here that generations will share the same “cherish” boxes, prepare meals on the same butcher block island, and rock grandchildren to sleep in the same chair created by our minds and hands. Indeed, woodworking is as much as a pastime as it is a journey. Each piece created here will likely last for generations and that’s the true beauty and meaning of woodworking…in my opinion. ...

Well my daughter has made me do this blog so I have fellow craftsmen to hang out with. It’s going to be my tips, tricks, and personal opinions on the business of wood working after 60 years.
