Just starting out...

01-04-2021 06:56 PM by Shout19 | 4 comments »

I’ve been reviewing all of the great work that everyone has posted on Lumberjocks, and I’m impressed! I have been dabbling for many years, and have recently begun building out a formal workshop. I have LOTS to learn, and look forward to sharing some of my projects here. As a “learning project”, I decided to use a bunch of scrap lumber to build a mobile work table for the workshop. It has three drawers (built from scratch), six cabinet doors (those I already had),...

Menorah tests that I built. Waiting on some hardware to test. Alder one is bugging me more than it should I screwed up the glue up so the heartwood is mismatched.

Ladder Shelf #2: Making shelves, cutting dados, sanding

10-23-2020 10:48 PM by MasonJay | 0 comments »

I got the frames cleaned up and cut the pieces off that stuck out and took time to sand what I could while it was easy to access. During the most recent progress I cross cut my shelves to rough length and began the glue up process. I only have so many clamps so it was done one at a time which was painfully slow. Once those were glued up, they were sanded down and cut to final width which is just over 23”. I took the time to cut down some more alder to create what will be a small lip alo...

Ladder Shelf #1: Building the Frames

10-12-2020 09:26 PM by MasonJay | 1 comment »

This will be the second… third ladder shelf build that I’ve done recently. The first, made of pine, was a travesty. One man’s junk is another man’s treasure though, and I had someone buy it from me so I recovered the cost of the materials. They painted it a sent a picture of it loving what they had. One major mistake I made with this first attempt was not realizing that I was building to sides that mirrored each other. So instead of using pocket screws on both the insi...

Personal Projects #1: Steamer Trunk ~ Blanket Chest

04-29-2018 08:14 PM by John Smith | 9 comments »

A few years ago, my 8yo granddaughter saw an antique steamer trunk at a yard sale and fell in love with it. Going through school, she learned that that style of trunk was used back in the days before airplane travelwas common and people traveled on cruise ships such as the Queen Mary (and the Titanic).for their vacations that could last up to 6 months or more. So they carried ever...

Large variety of exotic hardwoods and wood working tools. Free for my fellow LJocks

12-27-2017 05:46 AM by kiara583 | 20 comments »

Helped a friend move from large house with fully equipped woodworking shop to a smaller home. The overwhelming task of packing a 3500 sq ft house plus shop was difficult. Ran out of storage room so everything else was to be thrown out. Thought it would be a shame to throw it away so I spent a week hoping someone would appreciate this treasure. Will post more pictures. Turning tools, large dust collector, drill press, saws etcs. Could sell but would rather share. I only have time invested ...

So I noticed after looking on Facebook that there were no woodworking guilds in Oklahoma that I could fine so I’ve made a Facebook page titled woodworkers Guild of Oklahoma basically just because a lot of other states have a guild and my hopes are to build some networking and make some relationships with some other woodworkers locally because to be quite honest I don’t have but one friend who is a woodworker and he can’t do anything right now because of a personal injury. ...

Smallder Desk #3: Smallder? SmallDONE!

04-30-2017 06:18 PM by SauceMan | 0 comments »

Hey LumberJocks! So I’ve finally finished my desk! The last step was to attach the desk top to the legs / aprons. I did so by cutting some button fasteners out of alder on my band saw. I went for the button fasteners with kerf. I’ve attached a couple of photos of the finished desk here. I’m also showing it tucked against the wall. Because this is my “virtual reality” room, and I didn’t want the desk to eat into the tracking area a...

Hey guys i just thought I’d talk about the importance of networking with each other in the woodworking/maker community. Social media is a HUGE platform to show your work and meet other woodworkers all over the world( i think we all know this) but i just wanted to share my usernames for my platforms in hopes you guys could give me a follow and ill return the favor. Its all about growth and i have a dream of making this my way of living and you wouldn’t know how much it would help m...

Moberg Tools Small Router Plane Review

03-01-2017 03:26 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 5 comments »

Video link is here if you prefer not to read I heard about John Moberg’s tools from a friend of mine who has both his spokeshave and his router plane. I decided to get ahold of the router plane for myself and see what it’s like. The fit and finish is what you’d expect from a handmade tool. This is a user tool not a collector (thought it looks quite awesome in my opinion) It’s similar to a Stanley 271 plane but the &#...
