Carpentry quick links

My computer is still broke, so I’m having trouble keeping up with this blog. Until then, enjoy some websites on carpentry from elsewhere around the web!

  • The American Woods by Romeyn B. Hough, contains photographs of some 350 North American lumber types. You can browse by common or scientific name as well.
  • Lumberjocks has a number of great resources. In addition to projects and a blog, they also review woodworking tools and feature a heavily-visited forum.
  • I’ve been following the weekly tips at Woodsmith for awhile. They feature some good tricks for your shop and tools.
  • New Woodworker, like Lumberjocks, also has articles, reviews, tips and tricks. Their tips and tricks are organized by topic, making it easy to browse.
  • How to draw a hexagon with just a compass. Also, draw a pentagon with just a compass and a ruler.
