Greetings & Salutations, I just got the news a little while back that my youngest nephew is getting marriedthis December. I am looking forward to that as it will be a good excuse to go toFlorida for some good times with some of the family. I wanted to come up with a different kind of gift but also wanted something thatI would not have to carry in my pickup. Being kind of practical since the P/U gets18 mpg and my Prius gets 51 mpg that would take a big dent out of the travel budget. ...
This workbench has came a long way. Started off by ripping down 2×8’s for the legs and the stretchers, then hand to mortise out the legs, create half blind dovetails and I’m finally at the top of the bench. In this video I show how I chose to mount the top of the bench so I can keep everything portable. I also cleaned out the shop a bit and placed the bench in its resting spot. Still lots of cleaning to do in the shop, but the bench is ready to go! Check out the video on YouT...
I was wondering what kind of glue people use for veneering. Recently I have tried Titebond Cold Press Glue for veneer. I have have decent results with this product. Any thoughts?
Some time ago I posted a review and a project singing the praises of the MUSCLECHUCK, a wonderful invention which replaces the original router chuck and only requires a half turn of a 4mm Allen key to lock/unlock the bit. Additionally, it gives about an extra half inch of depth of cut. The purpose of this post is so that members who have wives who are at a loss as what to buy them can leave notes around the place saying things like “I’d love to have one of these for my xyz router...
Here is a shot of the upright posts in their “sandwich” mortises. Left side: C-clamps do the job. Right side: Pittsburgh bar clamps and one C-clamp. Almost complete. Front and back upright assemblies are skewed by about 3/16”. It’s beautiful wood though! And the top rails are dead even in height.

I’ve now officially got less than a month left here in Colorado before my family and I head back to Virginia. I wasn’t a woodworker while there, but I am now, and will be looking for good advice on preparing my tools for short-to-medium term storage (could be a month, could be a year) and getting them ready to move as well. It’s a job change that has caused this, and I couldn’t be happier. I’m going back to an old employer and am really looking forward to wo...

Allman Bros Band, covering a little T-Bone Walker tune you may have heard. Stormy Monday. Very fitting tune for my neck of the woods today.
