Just for Fun #3: Checker Board Coffee Table

05-16-2013 02:11 AM by ScottShaeffer | 2 comments »

I’m working on this coffee table as a wedding gift for my cousin and his wife-to-be. I’m a log furniture maker so there are a lot of techniques I haven’t been introduced to until I started working with fellow Lumber Jock, Kris Williams. Kris makes fine rustic furniture so I’ve been quite fascinated by some of the ways he does things and decided to start playing around with some of it. Of course, I don’t have all the machines Kris has so I require his help for a f...

Incidental Fermat Projects #5: Kids in the Hall

04-09-2013 03:17 AM by vipond33 | 9 comments »

A trivial piece in a way, an often unseen piece, even by me, one of my favourites. When the routine sheet goods come in the back door, usually unloaded piece by piece, every grain pattern of every piece is admired or at the very least registered. Once in a while though you pause, gobsmacked. Then it gets tucked off to the side hoping the job won’t need it and later you offhandedly ask to buy just the one, thanks. One cabinet from 100% of one maple board. maybe a good challenge for...

Half Lap Joint

01-25-2013 10:11 AM by bigchopperoo | 3 comments »

I’m going to do a half lap with a cross cut, chisel paring, and followed through with a shoulder plane. Now if you didn’t know better, you might be thinking I’m an Olympic diver getting ready to execute a stunning high dive. But alas, I am not. I’m a woodworker, and this is a structural joint and the tools I will use to make a simple, yet strong woodworking joint. The Half Lap is a joint used to connect two intersecting pieces of wood. Each piece of wood is sawn to half its thickness. Whe...
