Foot Stool #1: The Top

07-10-2019 08:34 AM by icemanhank | 0 comments »

Hi all, I have been asked by my wife to make her a small foot stool and I had some hardwood offcuts floating around so here it is.The off cuts were in the shape of a triangle so I used a gum leaf as a template to make a cut out design before joining the two pieces and carved in a section for some gum nuts which I will fill with epoxy.I just brought some Record carving tools so I thought I would it would be nice give the edges a bit of scolloping so I tried my hand at that, I like the look ...

It’s All About Donating! #1: Rustic Intarsia!

05-25-2019 03:43 PM by justoneofme | 16 comments »

Hi there all my LumberJock buddies! I’m finally getting into my latest project. This Intarsia wall hanging is an art piece that will be donated to our local Hospice for auction (or raffle) ... it hasn’t been decided which yet, but the proceeds will go toward our future Hospice House. This facility is great news and much needed for our Duncan community on Vancouver Island! While working on the design, the idea of a rustic picket fence background came instantly to mind when I spied this ve...

Alaska Cabin #2: Diamond Willow & Agate Cabin Kitchen Lights

02-06-2019 01:33 AM by Matt Snyder | 2 comments »

After my diamond willow and agate bed lights turned out so good I decided to do something similar in my “kitchen”. Running across the front wall of the kitchen is an electrical conduit tube that looks ugly and I wanted to hide it behind some diamond willow while adding some LED lighting. I looked through the pile of wood I harvested in the spring and found a strait enough piece that had some character and was big enough to cover everything up. To make it fit flush to the wall, I...

Alaska Cabin #1: Diamond Willow & Agate Cabin Bed Lights

02-05-2019 10:39 PM by Matt Snyder | 0 comments »

In the summer I work on a remote wildland fire initial attack base in a remote part of SW Alaska. I stay in a small 13’ x 15’ dry cabin. The lights above my bed when I moved in were these ugly canister lights that were in your face and too bright. I knew I could do better. It was a slow fire season in Alaska last year (2018) so in my free time I decided to make some changes and see if I could make things a little easier on the eyes. This is what I came up with. Keep reading to s...

Sealing live edge on swamp kauri

02-03-2019 05:40 PM by kiwilynne | 7 comments »

A piece of green swamp kauri that I’m working into a statement necklace. I don’t really want to use resin as a means of protecting the live edge and wondering whether a clear poly will do the trick? I haven’t really worked with live edges before, so inquiring minds :)

Christmas Gifts #4: Picture frames are harder than I thought...

01-04-2019 12:08 AM by HandyHousewife | 3 comments »

My parents just moved into a new house, so for a Christmas/Housewarming gift I thought a pair of picture frames in purple heart (purple is my mom’s favorite color) would be just perfect. What I didn’t know was how difficult making a perfect set of frames can be. Nor how long it can take to make them. Since I’m supposedly a millennial, I did what millennials do—watch YouTube videos to figure out how to make them. “Woodwork Web” and “Fix This Build T...

Misc. Shop Stuff #69: A Simple Cabinet

01-03-2019 05:46 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 33 comments »

It all started with a bit of horsing around with one of the M. Crannell moulding planes that came with the H&R half set + I got from Don Yoda over a year ago. Found some straight grained pine and made a decent profile, then decided to rough out a simple cabinet I could nail it onto. Start with more reclaimed (old, salvaged) pine boards and rough ‘em to size. Do some notch cuts and rabbets. Square nail fasteners for the face, then added beadboard back and...
