  1. Family Name Crossword Wall Art made from pallet wood

    So as a new/noob woodworker, I have been using Pallet wood for my projects.

    This is new and fun for me. I can not stand to throw away cool knots and weak burly pieces. So I now save them up for the slow times and experiment with adding new mediums. Wooden jewelry is IN. The first pic is of my standard keychains in Alexandrian Laurel, Bloodwood, Lauro Preto and Cuban...

  5. Christmas Presents 2011 - Name Puzzles

    I thought that I'd make some name puzzles this year. I probably have made them for my children, many years ago - but I don't remember seeing them in the last 25 years. My two younger children don't have any and my grandchildren don't have any. These were items that I made over 40 years ago when...
  6. Order to the U.K.

    I love LumberJocks and I understand this is not the place to sell or overly promote your work. But, doing these keeps me sane, busy and away from the places I could get into trouble, when I'm not working my real job (paper mill). Besides I love doing them. And everyone loves their name. Among...

    Etymology of Surnames ... I know Turners and Carvers and Coopers. Smiths and Tanners and Carpenters. Sawyers and even Wrights. But I never met a Joiner. Besides FloJo of Olympic fame, I've never heard of anyone named Joiner. A friend if mine who's a turner named Tanner (seriously) got a...

Lumberjocks have not let...
