1.5 million dollar cabinet for inspiration

09-16-2013 05:22 PM by botanist | 11 comments »

I haven’t seen this posted on Lumberjocks yet, so I thought I might bring it to the community’s attention. A woodworker in Australia took six years to create this cabinet out of 34 different types of wood, including petrified wood and it’s valued at $1.5 million.

Building and distressing a Farmhouse style table #2: Painting and Distressing

09-11-2013 01:27 AM by Kevin | 1 comment »

I started out by painting the corners with a bluish green color, then brown over the entire table. I forgot to take pictures of the brown, but I’m sure you get the point. Then a few coats of White. The blue is called Tropical oasis, the brown was oak barrel, and the white was Wedding Carriage. After the final coat was completely set up I went over the edges and corners with 80 and 120 grit sandpaper to show some of the other colors and a little bare wood. Next I just have to give the wh...

Simple Green blade cleaning

07-17-2008 05:40 AM by steveosshop | 8 comments »

I thought I would put this out there as a blog. I had been looking for something to clean my sawblades with. I thought about some of the kits available from woodoworking stores and online, but while I was looking found a blog on simple green. I started researching that and found a couple quotes from members of the Freud company about the product. I don’t know how credible they are, because I could not find anything out about them or it on any publication from Freud. It did spark my inte...

Storm Door Inserts

06-23-2010 12:28 AM by Troy | 7 comments »

Several days ago, I was asked to rebuild a few storm door inserts destroyed by some overzealous dogs.  Dogs – 1 || Door Insert – 0  I hesitated a bit because it seemed liked a boring production item, but I am not one to usually turn down a woodworking project.  No better softwood  So I got some high-grade Douglass Fir and went to work replicating the screened versions. The mangled model was made with bridal joints in each corner and sep...

Arts and Crafts Nightstand #4: Tops, Drawer Fronts, and Corbels

06-03-2013 09:02 PM by pintodeluxe | 6 comments »

This is the nightstand project…-----Panel glueup for the tops. I do my glueups in two stages. First I glue two pairs of boards together to make planks. Then I send them through the planer while they are still narrow enough to fit. Finally I glue these two planks together to make a panel. I describe flat panel construction in detail in my dresser blog… http://lumberjocks.com/pintodeluxe/blog/33797-----A pair of rough glueups complete. -----I made a template for the corbels, w...

V8 Degree wedge powered workbench #8: The Sketchup ....Worth Waiting For

09-13-2012 06:33 PM by shipwright | 22 comments »

When I started thinking about this bench I did a sketchup to organize my ideas before I started building. This is a real switch for me but I have to admit it was kind of fun and clearly made building easier. That sketchup however was not really good enough to give someone unfamiliar with all the thought processes a simple plan to follow. Realizing that several people may actually want to build it I decided that a better SU was in order so I asked LJ resident Sketchup Master, Rance, if he c...

Cutting premixed Shellac

03-21-2011 05:50 PM by pjones46 | 15 comments »

There has been alot of conversation as to how to cut certain lb cut shellac to some other cut. This was taken from Fine Woodworking and I hope that the table shows up corrctly but should it not refer to link: http://www.finewoodworking.com/Materials/MaterialsArticle.aspx?id=28833 Shellac Conversion Ratios To convert remixed shellac to a dilute cut, add the appropriate amount of alcohol, as shown in the chart. For example, to convert a 2-lb. cut to a 1-lb. cut, add 2/3 of 1 part alcoh...

Maple Barrister Bookcase

08-28-2009 07:32 AM by Scarcraig01 | 3 comments »

This blog will follow my process as I build a maple set of barrister bookcases. My long range goal is to build a total of 22 barrister “boxes” divided into 6 units. To date, I have completed 8 boxes in 2 units. The first, is solid quartersawn white oak with frame and panel sides. The second, was made using mahogany plywood with solid mahogany trim pieces. The plan I’m using, (although somewhat modified) is from plans now.com I added frame and panel sides to min...

Free 18th Century Style 3/4" Wooden Rabbet Plane Plans

03-22-2013 11:37 PM by Caleb James | 7 comments »

So in the spirit of getting everyone in the shop and cutting up some wood I decided to post up a measured drawing of a 3/4” wooden rabbet plane in the 18th century style. It is all wood with the exception of the blade which is easily gotten from Lie-Nielsen here. It features a conical escapement and some simple embellishments that a hand plane, chisel, and #7 sweep gouge can handle. The plans are basic with a few things that can be easily changed if you like. Such as the bed angle...
