Post and Panel Construction System #1: What Is It?

1506 days ago by Pete Tevonian | 1 comment »

The Post and Panel System started with the desire to let my son build cool castles out of blocks. But I didn’t like that regular blocks fall down so easily. A little kid is going to have a hard time protecting his castle from barbarians, pets and siblings if the only things he can use are gravity and friction! So, unlike regular old blocks, the posts and panels in this set lock together. In minutes, without any instructions, your kids (or, be honest, you) can create complex and s...

You've got to see this mirror finish on soft pine!!!

712 days ago by woodshaver | 34 comments »

I was putting a finish on a headboard I was working on and just out of the blue I thought what if I rubbed some Salad bowl finish (bees wax and mineral oil) on some raw sanded pine and then let it dry and spray it with lacquer. My common sense told me the lacquer would fish eye or bead up and it was a dumb idea. I always use sanding sealer under Lacquer! Well I did it anyway just to see what would happen! I did all this by hand…..no power buffing at all. I sanded to 400, stained ...

The Folding Stick Chair

713 days ago by Sailor | 14 comments »

A super cool folding chair! I actually found this project here on Lumberjocks quite a while back when jdtorque posted it. He found it when another LJ, eddie posted it. So I know it’s not the first time it’s been on here but I am aware that not every LJ has seen it (I recently met a fellow LJ for the first time, he hadn’t seen it). But I figured for those who have seen it and may be contemplating building one wouldn’t mind a decent video of how it works and such...

200+ Wine Bottle balancers #1: Wine bottle balancers for the wedding

713 days ago by CueballRosendaul | 9 comments »

About 10 years ago, I made a batch of those wine bottle balance pieces for Christmas presents. When my step daughter was here, talking about gifts for the guests who make the long drive to her wedding, I suggested these would be pretty nice. I was thinking like 1 for each couple, so maybe I’d be in for 50 or so pieces. Her first request was for 275 pieces! DOH! She later downsized it to 125, but I already had lumber cut for 200+ so she’s getting about 175 and I’m keeping th...

Dust Collection Issues. #1: 100% improvement for $100 and a couple of hours.

714 days ago by shipwright | 21 comments »

Last winter Steve (kizerpea) posted this home built canister filter. It caught my attention because I had a large DC system in my Canadian shop that employed a bag filter. Having just done a canister conversion on my HF DC in AZ (how’s that for acronyms), I was all ears especially the part about using truck filters. .... FREE truck filters. It has taken me a while to get around to it but today I was at the point where that &%^$#&^# dust bag needed to be cleaned. I HATE clean...

Truing a table saw arbor to perfection

723 days ago by vipond33 | 11 comments »

Following up on a post by MrRon concerning “Concerns regarding saw cutting accuracy” I thought I would show anyone interested how to achieve pretty close to zero run-out on any table saw equipped with a pressed on or integrally machined flange. It’s worth doing. For this is the tool that for most of us makes or breaks the accuracy and satisfaction in our machining. If you run high quality blades (from any manufacturer) then this simple operation will enable you to get th...

Nakashima Inspired Coffee Table #4: A Leg to Stand On

727 days ago by PittsburghTim | 0 comments »

After toying for some time with the idea of using one long leg along the straight side of the top and a turned leg on the other side, some testing with a mock-up convinced me that it was just not goinf to be stable. I turned towards another idea that would still use one long leg down the center of the table with one cross-leg, if you will, off center in both directions. I think that the leg design will be stable, yet is not too heavy looking. It still needs some final fitting before I sa...

thought I’d continue the exploration of creative, unique woodworking to get the creative juices flowing and spark some ideas in peoples’ minds. Mostly what I post in the “creative woodworking” blogs are more modern pieces of furniture – only because thats what I like. Feel free to add any photos that YOU find really creative and want to share! Most pics come from www.design-milk.com or www.architonic.com – i’m not affiliated with them what-so-ever&...
