  1. Decorative Box

    Decorative Box This project has been almost completed for over two years, but I had not put on the finish. So about two weeks ago I started the finishing. I used four coats of Tung Oil and one coat of feed-N-wax with sanding and steel wool in between coats. This project was part of the Fine...
  2. Another Mixed Hardwood End Grain Board

    Hot off the press today with another 3 near complete (pics to follow). Really pleased with this one as the end grain showed some gorgeous colouring and detail. Oak, Ash, Padauk, Sapele, Maple and Beech. Rounded finger holds added using a 1/4" bull nosed router bit. Dimensions - 450mm x 320mm x...
  3. Cam Clamps

    I have started a new project building my first cello. It seems to be a right of passage for serious instrument builders. I noticed on a blog that these clamps were used so I searched the net and found some plans. They seem to work quite well. Not bad out of a pile of scrap beech. I still need to...
  4. Modern Steam Engine & Tender

    Wanted to make a old style Steam Engine for my Great Grandson but don't have a lathe to be able to turn the boiler so made him this "Modern Steam Engine". All parts where mix - match as I was using up scrapes from other projects. I have been sending him cars and trucks up to now so he will be...

  5. Steamer trunk

    A steamer trunk I built from a woodsmith plan and hardware kit. Basicly a box with splines in the mitered corners and a frame and panel lid. I used oak plywood and solid walnut and once agian swear I'm never gonna use it again as I sanded through the almost non existent veneer. I hate, i hate ...

    My wife and I are planning a leaf peeping trip this fall and will be in the New England area. Any especially interesting woodworking tool, lumber, schools, and such wood related sites to visit? Glenn "Woodketeer"
  7. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hello everyone, I have been doing a lot of research on various furniture craftsmanship schools in my area (Philadelphia). I almost wish that I did not live in an area that had a few of them so it wasn't so hard to choose from. I have always liked working with wood and anything I have done...
  8. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hey everybody, I've been doing some research lately about cabinet and furniture making as a career. I realize that there are many risks involved in this venture but I'm taking my time to get all of my ducks in a row… I have talked to a few LJ's about their success in this profession and that...
  9. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Every so often I get the idea that I'd like to go take a woodworking class for a few days and expand my skills. Then I get to thinking about what is my wife going to do while I'm off at class during the day. (a lot of these classes seem to be in fairly remote locations.) ..and coming up empty...
  10. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hello fellow LJ'ers. I have spent a lot of time in the last few months building a new web site and playing around with some subscription options, but I have officially launched The Hand Tool School. After putting out over 100 podcast episodes over at The Renaissance Woodworker and getting so...

    The First Day of School Thursday, August 27, 2009 The First Day of School I don't think I slept the night before the first day of Woodworking School. I had been waiting five years to do this, now it was actually going to happen. Maybe I was worried about going to school again after all these...
