A Clean Shop #1: A New Shop Cabinet

11-12-2007 11:25 PM by Tim Dorcas | 0 comments »

The last two months or so, the shop has been a mess. Partly this is due to not having a place to put all of my lumber but the bigger part is I have had no place to put the larger equipment. Recently in one of the woodworking magazines they built a shop cabinet that housed the same type equipment I was trying to organize. They built it with spruce and peg board. I had some left over melamine (melamine that just happened to match all of the other cabinets in the shop) so I went to work with a d...

Tall Tales .... I'll start the list

11-11-2007 04:50 AM by Dan'um Style | 30 comments »

Thought this might be fun. In a trimmed down Peco’s-Bill-style everyone has story or two to tell. I’ll start the list. #1 In the summer after my eightth grade, my family moved out of town to a small farm 5 miles outside of Ames, Iowa. Cornfield country. My father was a bricklayer, but he could make about anything. Borrowing one of his wood chisels, I started tossing it around like it was a magicians throwing knife. I learned to stick-it into almost anything. Tree. ...

The Craftsman's Path #12: The joy of a well tuned hand plane

10-17-2007 05:50 PM by Mark Mazzo | 9 comments »

I spent some time in the shop this past weekend working on a couple of final tasks for a new table before starting on the finishing. I had a choice on how to do the work and opted for a simple block plane. If you’ve done work with well-tuned hand tools, then you know how my experience was…either way, you can read about it here.

The Craftsman's Path #11: Sam Maloof on design

10-13-2007 05:02 PM by Mark Mazzo | 0 comments »

I’ve recently been doing some reading on various designers in search of guidance and inspiration. Sam Maloof has always been one of my favorites. In doing so, I came across some quotes from Maloof that express some of his philosophies on woodworking and design. In this post on my blog I explore these and share some of my thoughts on them. I’d be interested in hearing the perspectives on this subject from all of you LumberJocks out there. Thanks for reading!

Woodworking? Or Carpentry?

10-12-2007 01:34 PM by Dekker | 14 comments »

I am reminded once again about the difference between woodworking and woodworking. To the lay-person, anytime you take up your hammer, nails, saw, glue and wood, you are practicing the art of woodworking. At least that’s the way my wife sees it, and when I suggested that I was going to spend some time in the workshop this weekend to play with a box design I had dreamt up, she immediately suggested that I do one of the other woodwork projects that need to be done such as the bathroom ...
