Amazing Desk ( not mine ) But worth a look

291 days ago by Ken90712 | 14 comments »

I received this email this morning and had to share it with my fellow Lumberjocks. The craftsmanship is amazing. From all the inlays and the flawless finish this desk is something. What’s truly amazing is all the secret compartments and buttons to activate them all. It’s not only an engineering marvel, but a work of art. Enjoy! Again, This is not mine. Just wanted to share as were all wood junkies! AMAZING DESK

Taking Care of Business

39 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

As we begin another week, there is something that I want to mention to you all. For the past couple of weeks, I have taken a day or two off from blogging on the weekend. This isn't because I have had nothing to do or wasn't busy, but rather because I have have been very productive – usually so much so that I have been using my morning time to get a head start on things. This isn't a bad thing. I rather think it is good. I have had several inquiries as to why I am not po...

“The Window Method” Parquetry is a geometrical form of Marquetry.

1139 days ago by Dennis Zongker | 28 comments »

This Parquetry panel is an insert for a conference table. This is the companies logo, It’s an abstract design of an Eagle. The panel size is 24” wide x 54” long. This was a very fun project, it took me around 32 hours to draw, cut, glue, and stain and finish. I used the “The Window Method” because of the long straight lines and the geometrical shapes. It’s much more accurate this way. If I was to used a scroll saw it would be very hard to keep the lines straight. 1...

78 days ago by WoodAndShop | 5 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) In the above Video I show a visit that I made to the workshop of legendary guitar luthier and bluegrass musician, Wayne Henderson.

Functional Intarsia ... Well Aged!! #1: Functional Intarsia ... Well Aged!!

193 days ago by justoneofme | 25 comments »

Well! It’s about time I got my act together to greet you all, and wish each and everyone a very healthy and happy New Year. Late I know, but better late than never, eh?! I know many of you have been very productive since my last posting in May … having enjoyed viewing and commenting as often as possible. Between cabin life, Xmas projects with the grandkids, and moving my 93 year old Dad just before Xmas into his semi-assisted lifestyle (where he is very content) ... the whir...

A Story of Mountain Rifles, an Old Man, and a Boy

201 days ago by summerfi | 21 comments »

This is a story about muzzle loading “mountain” rifles, an old man, and a boy. One of the rifles is shown in these pictures. The old man was my grandfather. And the boy was me – many years ago. I come from an Appalachian Mountains heritage where, to say it gracefully, people weren’t wealthy. I learned at an early age that if I wanted something, there was usually no money to buy it, so I would have to make it myself. I made the rifle pictured here in 1967 when I was 18 years old. I’m no...

There are craftsmen... and there are Craftsmen !

225 days ago by Grumpy | 16 comments »

What do you think they’re building? There are craftsmen…and there are Craftsmen !! The Morgan Motor Company located in Britain doesn’t change in a changing world. Not only is it still independent, but it also makes each car by hand. A base model is about $44,000, with some cars costing up to $300,000. People wait for over a year to get their exclusive hand-built cars with the shell made out of metal a...
