Review of Tropical Exotic Hardwoods of Latin America

862 days ago by jusfine | 6 comments »

As we were taking in some rays in the Palm Springs area last month, I had the urge to see some lumber or tools, and realized it was not a long drive to Carlsbad California to the Tropical Exotic Hardwoods supplier. Their website is here It was relatively easy to find with GPS, and the warehouse was large and well lit. There were a few customers while we were there (about an hour), but it was not really busy – it was a week day around lunch time. They had ...

Lap Desk #1: started with a pile of wood

890 days ago by JoeyG | 13 comments »

As you may know, I am currently working on a bookcase job. While it is only 6ft on one side and 8 on the other with a 45 cab in the corner. It is still big for my shop. It is the first cabinets I have done in a couple of years and is very enjoyable project so far. I have been moving this pile of wood around for 2 weeks and I am over it. There is a little bit of everything there. A chunk of padauk, walnut, rosewood, and some zebrawood. I think there are some others, but do...

Skill Building #5: More Fun with the #78 and Other hand Planes

944 days ago by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 14 comments »

I have another recent post ‘lamenting’ underutilized space, so I’ve been in the shop to rededicate a large storage cabinet to fasteners. It’s an old harware store case and needed a piece of face trim to dress it up a bit. Nothing fancy, just something missing, you know? Presenting furring strip and cabinet: There’s a slight overhang to the top vs. the face of the case, so the trim piece needs a shallow rabbet. I’ll use the Stanley #78 moving fi...

Optimal Cutting with minimum scrap - iPad app

992 days ago by SmartCutter | 18 comments »

I recently finished working on a cutting algorithm app for the iPad and iPhone called Smart Cutter, and wanted to share the app with every one hoping get some feedback from carpenters and wood workers. Smart Cutter finds the maximum number of small pieces cut from a larger sheet of paper with minimum scrap. It employs a state of the art algorithm to generate the maximum number of small pieces cut from a larger sheet of paper, wood, cloth or any other material, with minimum waste. Whether y...

Tree growth "vortex"

1135 days ago by tswoodwizard | 3 comments »

OK, maybe all of my wood-tec type friends out on LJ,s can help me figure this out. I’ve allways been fascinated with the dynamics of curing and drying wood after the harvesting process. One to overcome is of cource the growth vortex that occures in some species and not in others. One question I have is this, Is there a right-hand vortex that occures above the equator as opposed to a left hand one bellow the equator? When a tree wiggles and struggles up out of the grownd, It also “...

new ideas #7: I made it into the shop finally

1188 days ago by JoeyG | 3 comments »

I have been grabbing an hour here and there letting things like the grass slide (I am going to do it when I finish this post). I have 6 boxes well on there way, pieces cut for another 9, and that takes care of most of Christmas. Here are a few pics of my progress so far. I have used a lot of different woods and think that most are listed in early post in this thread. I hope to be able to post some of them completely finished soon. As with all things, time will tell. !https://s3.am...

new ideas #6: back in the shop

1198 days ago by JoeyG | 1 comment »

So I have finally finished most of the remodel. Just a few more loose ends to tie up. So I have found a few hours to get into the shop. This is what i have so far. Once again I have to thank Andy., for I am using his style palm boxes. I wanted to give them a spin. I am also taking inspiration from his art boxes with the grinding. I don’t have a sanding disc for my angle grinder, plus these boxes only have 3/8 inch sides so I am using drum sanders. Both on a drill press and in my...
