I'm a hack that lives in Wisconsin. I like woodworking because it helps pass the long winter.
I'm self-taught, which explains my limited knowledge. I've been making simple furniture and cabinets for a long time, (out of necessity). I usually make face frame cabinets using a doweling jig and rabbeted joints. I'm trying to challenge myself by making more interesting projects using different joinery techniques.

I started the prep for the assembly. I do not have a spray setup, nor do I want to try to learn how to do that at this time. I stained and varnished the pieces prior to assembly. The disadvantage is handling lots of loose parts. I also end up putt...
I’ve got the pieces for the tables all stained and varnished. Now I can assemble this puzzle. But first, I have to clean up the stray varnish from the tenons and other glue surfaces. So a bit of sanding, one more dry fit and then ...
