Diary of a Wood Hoarder #1: In the beginning was...broken chairs

07-18-2014 04:35 PM by CFrye | 81 comments »

Seems only right to start this with “Hi, my name is Candy. I am a wood hoarder.” And I’ve only begun! I’ve been actually woodworking for a year and a half (more or less). Available hardwoods at the local box store consisted of red oak and poplar. Now don’t get me wrong, there is some amazing figure in quarter sawn red oak and beautiful color variation in poplar. However it didn’t take long, hanging out here at Lumberjocks, for me to be craving some variety....

Morris Chair build ala. Wood Mag. plans #1: And so it begins

01-28-2019 09:08 PM by Mainiac Matt | 22 comments »

One of my main goals in setting up a home woodshop has been to make heirloom quality furniture in the Mission and Arts & Crafts motifs. And after two hope chests, three sets of speakers and a platform bed, I’m finally ready to dive into my first real furniture piece, a Morris chair. After reviewing most of the plans out there, I decided that I liked the Wood Magazine plan best. After much clean up and organization to reclaim the horizontal surfaces of the shop from junk col...

Resume,If you have hired someone before please read

12-11-2008 06:41 PM by Joshua Howe | 22 comments »

Okay this maybe odd but, I have tried to get into a few different shops. I worked in one for a little while and I loved it but, I was working on commission and was having problems getting payed by the owner. My question is about my resume. I have always been very creative and know that I can do what ever a job would require. I also know the economy is in a hole right now. But I am going to post my resume and I would love some feed back. Please be very critical. I am an artist and have ...

Morris inspired chair #10: I'm ready for my close up Mr Deville.

07-01-2007 03:29 AM by Bob Babcock | 22 comments »

I’ve got a smile from ear to ear. We finally took a ride and picked out the cushions and material for the chair today. Suzanne should get started Monday or Tuesday. I may have a finished chair by next weekend. I’ve tested out some different combinations for the cushions and decided on 5” of high density foam with 2” of a softer foam on top for the seat, The back will be 5” of soft foam. Each will be wrapped in batting to soften the edge. I’m looking ...

How-To #2: Bucket Chair

07-07-2011 04:29 AM by dakremer | 20 comments »

Hey Guys. This is something I thought of today (on my day off) and built within a couple of hours. I didnt use any plans….just an idea in my head. I am going fishing tomorrow and needed somewhere to keep my fish and sit, so decided why not do both at once. I used all scrap pine wood – 1X4’s and 2X4’s (I ran out towards the end and had to finish up with OSB). It sits pretty comfortable, and the height is perfect! Its definitely not going to win any fine wood ...

Building a Carved Functional-Art Chair to Match the Tilt Front Desk

10-22-2007 06:17 AM by Mark A. DeCou | 16 comments »

I’ve had a fun week. I’m building a chair to match the Tilt Front Desk that I previously posted, and blogged about. If you want to read about the desk, the posting link is given at the bottom of this blog. The desk chair is designed to fit the customer’s kitchen, as the desk is being placed in the kitchen area. She loves to cook, and hopes to move her laptop computer station to the kitchen where she can capture her thoughts on her cooking blog, and do more writing. ...
