  1. 17' Cedar Kayak

    Hello all. Just discovered this website while searching for ideas on things to make. I'm a fairly novice woodworker, but have found I kind of have a knack for it. Thought I'd share a project I finished recently.. it's still not 100%, but only needs some varnish for UV protection. I have had...
  2. cedar strip canoe

    12.5' cedar strip. I changed a few things from the plans to make it mine. I came up with this seat design and moved it back a few inches. This allows me to sit on the bottom like a solo kayak when i am fishing. Or I can sit in the seat if i want to use the canoe as a tandem.
  3. Baby Tender II - Baby Cradle With Modifications

    Baby Tender II Cradle Boat with Modifications I made the cradle and my wife made the mattress and side bumpers for an on the way grandchild. We delivered this gift today and they were completely surprised. It is based on the "Baby Tender II" plans I purchased from Jordan Wood Boats...
  4. Thin Strip Jig I built

    Back in 2019, I created a thin strip jig as a way to cut thinner stock in a repeatable fashion. Thin strips might not seem desirable until you need one. The one I originally made wasn't well documented, so I started a new one. I'm going to run through it here. First I created a base by...
  5. Assorted kitchen doodads

    These are just a few of the things I have made in the past few weeks to combat the lack of space in my kitchen. The oak knife strip in the first picture is using 1/4" x 1/8th" neodymium magnets from magcraft.com . They are just slightly inset, so that they won't scratch the knives. I used food...

  8. Thin strip jig

    Thin strip jig. THIS VERSION IS NOW REPLACED WITH THIS ONE: https://www.lumberjocks.com/projects/409226 . I was tired of the hazard from back kick, and since I have been using a lot of thin strips lately, and will continue for a while, untill I finish my plane cabinets, I decided to make a...
  9. Not as Easy as it Looks, Here's what I Learned

    Nothing to spectacular, just a little 9"x12" cutting board made of hard maple with strips of black walnut and quilted maple running through a cut line. Everyone said it was trickier than it looks and I'd have to agree. Here's what I learned: 1. Create your thin strip ripping jig first and cut...
  10. Antique radio refinish

    This is an old radio from the 40's that belonged to my grandmother. I refinished it for my mother. The veneer was water damaged in numerous place and had to be patched. It's walnut as best as I can tell. The patches aren't perfect, but overall it turned out pretty good (you can see some on the...
  11. Thin Strip Ripping Jig

    I built this out of SHOPNOTES and I love it. Very simple but very effective. I am not sure which issue it was from. Maybe you know? I modified it a little. I found that a steel rule cut to size works great for the gauge. Just scuff/scratch one side and epoxy it on. Get a scrap of clear packaging...
  12. cedar strip canoe from the Burly Man Club/Burly Canoes

    This is a 13 foot Wee Lassie 2 made from northern white cedar, redwood, aspen and mahogany. I really love the feature strip in this canoe. It is so stinking easy to make and the effect is well worth the 1.5 hours to make it.
  13. Cedar strip canoe

    I started this late in 2014 and finished around the summer of 2015. Had I known about lumberjocks back then, I may have blogged the build to chronicle the progress and the obstacles I encountered and how I worked around them, and the some of the tricks I came up with to make it go a little...

    My wife loves collecting mid-century modern pieces and when she sees a deal on Craigs List or Facebook Marketplace she sometimes cannot resist. So last week she spots this end table online that she believes is a Broyhill Brasilia piece that might just be hiding beneath some titanium white...

Her daughter had a seizure at three months old that left her with partial blindness and partial hearing lost and they had to amputate her foot due to problems stemming from circulation. it also left her mentally handicapped. I'll post the Facebook...
  16. Joinery
    Hi I'm working on my split-top roubo workbench. I have some slabs that I have stribbed down. The slabs was about 5cm/2" thick, so the strips are the same prior to flatting. However, one of the slabs had quite a bow in it as shown in the attached picture. I have a small joiner that I'm using to...
  17. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Today as I was finishing a job. I fired up the dust collector, plugged in the sander, and started finish sanding….. Only problem: durning the one hour of sanding I never realized that I never plugged in the dust collector hose to the orbital sander….:(

    I seek experienced advice for stripping paint from mullions. I have a number of 12-light interior doors that I intend to repaint. I did not anticipate the amount of labor required to restore these doors. The mullions are the issue: every inch is a mess of several coats of painted-over junk...

    I like big knots and I cannot lie. Is it just me or are knots in cedar strip canoes really cool. I think clear cedar is overrated. Because the hull is encased in fiberglass, the knots shouldn't be an issue when it comes to hull strenth. But why doesn't anyone make canoes with knots. As for...
