The saga continues. Spent the morning flattening the top of the Sapele panel, and trimming the ends square.Apologies, but I forgot to take a picture before my son and I flipped it over to work on the bottom side. Was sort of anticlimactic when t...

Me = Techno junkie that likes making things with my hands, even If I am the worlds biggest tight wad klutz. Started woodworking in shop class in jr. high school many years ago. Designed and built custom speakers for home and professional PA use during my engineering college years. Spent much of my working career miniaturizing the electronics/semiconductor industries. Tend to gravitate towards doing more woodworking when ever I am between jobs or have a lack of money and extra time on my hands. My long past woodworking has been mostly finish carpentry, non-descript speaker boxes, veneer bookcases, and melamine garage cabinets. Got more serious about using real wood and trying craftsmen level woodworking about 5 years ago. I would rather be designing or building something than posting on forums about it. Have a been a lurker on LJ, SMC, and WN for the last 4-5 years out of necessity to learn how to be more efficient and competent woodworker. After having several people urge me to start selling my handicrafts, decided it was time to join LJ forum to give back and post some of my projects for a broader opinion on my latest efforts.
Now it's time to get back to workshop and play with some hardwood lumber.
-- I'm not a woodworker, but sometimes I do occasionally find useful tools and furniture inside a pile of lumber!

So, if you’re reading along, you know I have some so-so 2X4’s acclimating in my shop, that I have to turn into clamp cauls, so I can hopefully glue my table top together. Let the boards sit in the shop on stickers for 5 days to accl...
Hmm.. all set to glue 2 halves of the table top together 2 weeks ago, and what do I learn?I don’t have any clamp cauls long enough for the 39” wide top. Bummer.Never built a glue up that wide before, what did I expect? DOH! So, I ...
An update while I wait for glue to dry.Managed to get the second half of the table top glued today. Wasn’t hard, 3 boards glued in two glue ups, a few biscuits to keep it all aligned. More to come….
Not a fan of blogs as I don’t need any more computer time, but figured I’d make my first one (maybe my last).So where to start? SWMBO has been asking for a new kitchen table to replace an existing $100 press board & Formica piec...
