    Country Style Cabinet This was a cabinet i made for a customer of mine. The magazine, American Woodworker liked it and asked me to do and article on it. So i made another one. It's made of cherry and has an unique locking handle on it. If you are intersted in learning more it's featured in...
  2. Finishing
    My wife loves rustic furniture and I've picked up a couple of finishing techniques to give a shabby chic country sort of look but I've never been able to accomplish anything I'm "proud" of. How to you get a natural rustic antique look? Anyone have any suggestions on products they've used, or a...

    Any European Lumberjocks neighbors around me? Looking for any Lumberjock "European neighbors" near my corner of the world, to exchange ideas, tips, suppliers etc. in our area. My name is Stelios L.A. Stavrinides AKA Steliart I am from CYPRUS (East European Country (island) in the Mediterranean...
  4. Designing Woodworking Projects
    My wife wants me to make a classic pine country armoire (wardrobe). I'm looking for pictures and plans (size) of armoires. In particular I was wondering if anybody knew how to make an armoire that is collapsible since these things are usually large.
  5. Hand Tools
    I wanted to know what type of sandpaper I should be using to flatten hand plane soles. From my research (online), it looks like many people start with a coarse wet-dry sandpaper to start with, and work up the grits. I already have a flat granite block and a sacrificial practice plane (thanks...
  6. Focus on the Workspace
    I've purchased a small solid oak workbench from harbor freight for $150. It's OK - it came with only a shoulder vise and provides nowhere near the amount of rigidity I'll need to handplane. I've been told that you can glue the joints to help with this but the more I get into woodworking the more...
  7. Woodworking Skill Share
    I am working on a cabinet based on the the Pennsylvania Secretary by Lonnie Bird which has the 2 lipped doors that overlap in the middle. First time with this type of door. The doors are ready to go except that i dont have the rabbets cut in the outside yet to form the lipped edges. The...

    These just arrived in my shop.. The single phillips of the set has a patent info on it and what appears to be a license number I am having some trouble finding any information on the web about these. I am mainly just trying to date them. The closest I got was a 1951 catalog...

    I'm about to lay some of the hard-earned stuff out for a compound miter saw-the hand-driven sort, both for $$ and floor space reasons. I've looked at the Jorgensen Mini-Compound Miter Saw, which is large enough for my needs, but I'd be a fool not to ask the amassed brainpower at LJ what they...
  10. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I have named this redgum burl big Bertha. It measures 560X360X500 (22"X14"X20"). Naming the burl was the easy part, now comes the question, what do I do with it?, (besides giving it away to another Lumberjock). In one respect it looks too good to cut up. In another it could be cut into many...
  11. Site Help and Suggestions
    Hi! I'm afraid I really find it necessary to ask if it's possible to block PM's, either altogether, or if I can block one particular user who frequently sends me irrational, angry babble that makes no sense. I've never communicated with this person, so it is quite disturbing. Thanks!!
