Well I finally got it together.No dowels too long. After the first glue-up, I tested the glue on 2 blocks.The first break was close to where the vice jaws were, so I thought, that may be the vice acted as a fulcrum, forcing the wood to snap off...

Location: Salina Kansas
Born and Raised in Alaska, dad was in the oil exploration business as a geologist and surveyor.
I always loved woodworking, but we moved around, so I didn't really start getting a shop set-up until I was transferred to Salina Kansas.
I got to work on projects in the evenings at the local tech school, which was slow going. My wife decided I really needed to be set up in our garage (:-P) , so she got advice from her dad who was the high school shop teacher back in Alaska on what to buy, and voila a truckload of tools arrived.
I also have been travelling each year to Marc Adams' school in Indiana to build on my skills, sort of my annual pilgrimmage to wood mecca.
Right now woodworking is a hobby, I've had several commisions over the years, and we did the Christmas Craft shows a few times, but cannot afford to go pro, especially since I am living far from a sizable market. Travelling is Ok, but hard to get comissions long distance.

Well – as one can expect, there are always some unanticipated setbacks. Started off this morning, to glue the back together. First I carved grooves in the dowels, so that there would not be a problem with the dowel holes filling with glu...
My wifes grandfather was an avid woodworker in La Canada California. He owned and founded Lincoln Lumber in Pasadena. My wife received a pair of chairs, with rotted out leather seats, and a pretty rough finish. The chairs spent the past 60 y...
