Projects, the backstories #1: Slotted coin displays

03-20-2014 04:00 AM by PASs | 4 comments »

One of my staples for sale at craft shows is slotted coin displays.They are fairly simple to make and I try to make them in batches so I have inventory without setting up too often to make them.All of them so far have been made from dunnage used to ship steel radio transmission towers from India to the US. Where we would use pine 2×4’s to brace freight this particular company used an assortment of mid/far east woods. From what I can see and surmise it is the off-cuts from the India...

10-02-2010 04:42 AM by PurpLev | 20 comments »

OK, so now that the kitchen challenge is all over, I guess it’s a good time to post a blog regarding kitchen items … or… hold on… um – oops. too late. Oh well, I guess I’ll blog this anyways. So, the plan is to make a bread board. for the time being, the design shall remain unseen and will reveal in details as this blog series will progress. The board is primarily made of hard maple that I am recovering from bowling alley floors (I still have about ha...

Reclaimed Pine All-Weather Morris Chair #1: Introduction

05-21-2014 12:41 AM by TimBridge | 1 comment »

Hi all, I’ve been working on this Morris chair for the past 3 weeks and keeping pictures and my “blog entries” on imgur but I just realized that LumberJocks is a great place to keep the journey. I will be moving over a few entries at a time whenever I find the time. This is my first piece of furniture that is not a shop piece and it’s my first project that I’m finishing with something other than mineral oil and wax. These are the plans I’m using...

006: pallet wood cutting board #1: visualizing a cutting board in SketchUp

03-29-2010 01:03 PM by Gary Fixler | 6 comments »

I got some good suggestions in my last post about what to do with this block that I glued up from mostly reclaimed red oak pallet wood: One of the ideas I liked best was an end grain cutting board. I realized I had pics of each side of the block, so I made a block in SketchUp of the same dimensions, then slapped on textures from those pictures. It looked like this: Now I could cut that up by drawing lines at the locations where I wanted the cuts, then using the push/pull tool t...

Knotty Pine #1: Help Please. How do I save it?

10-24-2007 04:16 AM by Kevin | 16 comments »

This is a cry for help really. I have a house full of old knotty pine tongue & groove walls & ceilings. This house and this wood especially holds a special place in my heart. The house must be torn down, and you will all understand that I just can’t let all that wood go up in smoke. There is approximately 3700lf of 7” boards. The longest being on the ceiling and are 16’. I have taken off a couple boards and ran them through the planer to see what they would...

....and I thought my day was over :)

12-23-2012 02:37 AM by JSB | 7 comments »

With my wife being at her mother’s in preparation for Christmas I am home alone. I got in from the shop earlier and thought to myself “All this free time and I came back home???” Back to the shop! I did a well needed clean up and blow out and found myself with some rare, spare shop time. So here’s what I started. A couple days ago I found another sofa headed to the landfill. I had a small sledge and a razor blade knife so I decide why not. After chopping most of...

Salvaged lumber table top #1: Found lumber in the woods

09-27-2018 08:19 PM by RBurke83 | 5 comments »

So I bought a house about a year ago and while walking around the property I found this fairly large piece of lumber that was partially sunken into the forest floor. After more inspection I decided to remove it today with the goal of a massively thick three slab dining room table top. The board is, after cutting off about 18” that was damaged at the end, 21’3/4” long, 14.5” wide, and 4.5” thick. After I determined it wasn’t cedar (I sometimes build kayaks), i cu...

Knotty Pine #3: Brought home a trailer load today

03-17-2008 04:33 AM by Kevin | 7 comments »

Here are a few of the boards we have been able to salvage so far. This is probably 1/3 of the Knotty Pine that is there. I will probably get half this much again and then let the building be destroyed. I just simply do not know what to do with all of it, have no good place to store it, and quite frankly do not have the time to keep going back home every weekend to work on it. Trailer is 18’ x 7’ Most are 8’ – 9’, some 4’, some 12’, and some ...

Youtube videos: Another element to Woodworking #2: What i have learned about Video View numbers

04-05-2018 01:53 AM by rustednail | 2 comments »

One thing I have learned with the youtube channel thus far is that you never know which videos are going to get more views than others. I have made a few videos that I felt were going to do well and get lots of views, likes and comments but got almost nothing. On the other hand, one of the most watched videos I have on my channel is one that I recorded and edited quickly and without a lot of thought behind it. This video in particular didn’t have many views for the first week, but it seems to...
