Just couldn’t believe what was being used for roadside vendor tables in Bali—6 to 8 inch beautiful slab tables! That would make for a dream workbench. Anyway, here are pictures of carvers, their wares and tools, at various points on a trip we made a couple years ago for our tenth anniversary. The final products they turn out are ornate. The chisels used there are often handle-free. Pounding the tang suffices. The anvil idea is innovative, as is the foot vise. ...

I am looking for plans or a book on building a “floating top” table… can anyone point me in that direction or make plans available to me or tell me about a book that contains plans?John
I decided to finally get around to finishing up the blanket chest I’ve been working on. It’s a frame and panel design by John McAlevey I first saw in Fine Woodworking’s “In the Craftsman Style.” The frame is made up of the legs, rails, etc… Since this is a blanket chest you can imagine the panels are pretty beefy – about 20” wide and almost four feet long! While that amount of wood is expensive, that wasn’t the hardest part. You see...
I am going to keep things short today, as there is much I need to accomplish. I spent the day yesterday writing and working on the photographs that will accompany my patterns and articles for the magazine. That pretty much filled up the day for me, and I did little else. I was able to finish up for the most part however, and the files will be waiting on my editors desk this morning. I am relieved about that. I still have one more article that I need to finish up, but first I need to tal...
Hey everybody, I just had to gloat a little. I just won an ebay auction on a Forrest 10”, 40 tooth, thin kerf WWII blade. This is the Item description listed Forest 10 Inch Saw Blade for auction….Sharpened ONE time and has not been used since it was sharpened. It is in excellent condition. 40 tooth; 3/32 inch thin kerf table saw blade I checked with Amazon. The blade sells for $125 – $143. The saw blade stiffener, which is also included, is priced between $28 ...
Got my Sorbe chisel today. I got the one with changeable ends and a couple cutters. I saw a demo on this chisel and these two cutters will just about do anything but hollow out at an angle. I’m hoping they come out with an angle attachment. My wife wanted to go to the antique store today so we spent a couple hours at the Brass Armadillo. I found a couple of working clock inserts that are different, so for 15$ I picked up these for future art work. The one with the picture is mad...
After all this time of posting project pictures and videos I’ve decided to move out of my comfort zone and move into the view of the camera. I’ve never been one who wanted to be in front the camera so for me to do this is very new. As with many of you, my goal is to create a video journal of my woodworking experience. I plan on being in front of the camera a bit more so that viewers can develop a sense of my personality. People seem to like being able to put a face with a name....
It was all going so well, had a minor electrical issue with the dust extractor (fried capacitor) last week, but the electrically knowing ‘jocks amongst you came to my aid, and within a couple of hours I had switched the capacitor from the band saw and was once more sucking chips and dust. However, I fear nothing will help me today. The foul stench of TS death has overpowered the spicy smell of sapele dust that I have become accustomed to for the last two weeks. Smoke issuing from the...
