  1. My brother's tray table

    Last month I was blessed to be able to serve my parents for three weeks while Mom recuperated from a broken clavicle and leg. During that time, my brother's health continued to decline. I had seen a tray table which I thought that he might be able to use, so when I returned home I drew up a...
  2. Quarter Sawn Black Oak

    This is just one log from a tree I am milling and will get around 2000 bdft of quarter sawn 4/4. It is some real nice material with a light brown color full of tiger stripes. It will take a year for it to air dry before using. I also cut some nice 8/4 live edge slabs for table tops. More...
  3. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I have no experience with woodworking, but after many years of envious devotion, to the projects a close friend of mine completes, I have decided to finally do something about… I am moving back to Atlanta in 2 weeks, and I have already registered for a class at Highland Woodworking. Until then...
  4. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Hi all, I am a weekend woodworker so I know a decent amount but by no means a pro. I am looking to start a new project but am running into a snag on the design. My goal is to essentially create a wooden brief case sorta. I have some board games that I have created my own maps for and would...
  5. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Please forgive the discursive ramble. I tend to think better "out loud". So, I have a monster of a dining room table that has been in the family for generations. It's a solid wood table with a beautiful persimmon wood veneer. When it's polished up and not covered in all the random crap that...
  6. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have been a lurker on the LumberJocks site for some time and can honestly say I have gained invaluable knowledge. I am ready to take the plunge and replace my table saw. I am trying to stay around $1200 and am interested in a hybrid saw. I will definitely be adding a mobile base as my shop...

    Is this thing on? Its been a week or so since I signed up for LJ. For most of that week I haven't given LJ a lot of thought, as I've been busy in non-wood projects. So I guess with all good beginnings, this one should start out with a little foundation work. In the experience category I have...

    Still Having Fun!! A Thousand Posts!! Not much at all, compared to the more prolific here, but it's somewhat of a landmark for me… I've been reflecting on what my time here has taught me… I've learned better and faster ways of doing things. The combined skills of the members here on LJ's is...

    A sunday afternoons pick for the shop! Hey friends, hope all is well out there. For anyone that enjoys my type of woodwork and shop I thought that I would have a separate blog series for when I am not actually working on projects but finding cool picks, auction purchases or just adding to the...

    Just finished having a "think." While I was just reading a review of a book here I started thinking about the nostalgia and admiration so many of us have for how wood was working in the "old days." I've seen a lot of comparison and puffed chests amongst the hand tool, power tool, and hybrid...

    A good start Being the self-educated woodworker that I am, I would like to discuss the tool I feel has become the most important tool in my collection and that is my workbench. It is a great place to start when developing a shop of your own. I know there are many who will disagree. In fact...

    Thoughts about CNC routers and the essence of woodworking Last weekend, I joined a couple other sawdust junkies on a trip to the Wood Expo (aka the Peachtree tool sale). Among the displays and demonstrations, there were 4 companies selling CNC routers, and one selling a laser engraver. I think...

    Measuring "success" Daylight hours are short at this time of year, so I do as much thinking as sanding. I know most people's blogs are useful, instructional and informative. Mine aren't :-) All I can do is let you peek into the scariness that's in my head. I recently posted a project...
  14. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I am not one to stay up late to ring in the New Year so this morning when I awoke I had a head full of thoughts running around and crashing into one another about this the New Year. Taking care of morning business as we all do sitting there on the throne of life things came to me so I decided to...

    Barrel of Monkeys I have been an LJ member for about 6 months now, admiring the projects of those so gifted and occasionally posting my humble offerings. Working on my latest project, I realized, we are all part of a chain of a living barrel of monkeys. When we are new, the top, the bar that...

    Woodworking for $$ All, I love working in my shop-when it suits me & I am working on a project that I want to work on, regardless if it is for me, Mama, the House or a Friend. I have come to ABSOLUTELY despise working for $$, a project with a deadline or a project for a customer-even if they...

    Shop Thoughts Recently I have not been spending as much time in my shop as I used to. I have no great reason for this other than I had already finished my box for the 2018 Boxswap and I hadn't gotten around to starting a project that I find a tad bit intimidating (mostly because I attempted the...
  18. Finishing
    I purchased a electric guitar kit first off and need to get some advice and check somethings and as Lumberjocks is the go to place for helpful woodworkers I am going to throw it out there for thoughts. I am seriously confused on the finishing well in general, I need a sealer which I put on after...
