So I had some extra time on my hands… and I wondered, just how small can you go with this rising dovetail mystery mallet? So I pulled out a piece of 3/4” oak that was sitting around, cut it in half, and started laying out the cuts for a very thin “mallet.” I used a blue pen, which is part of the dark line you see along the joints. (They actually are very tight—tighter than I expected.) I didn’t take a lot of time to in laying it out, and my entire tim...
I think there is a little artist in all woodworkers. I seen this ad for Samsung Galaxy note with artist AJ Fosik. I like what he says about his work. I think it applies to many of us. http://youtu.be/andbOuRGV5w?hd=1
We do a lot of corrugated partitions at work, and occasionally do similar designs out of plywood cut on the CNC for use in crates. So I laid these out in 1/4” Masonite and banged them out about a month ago. Here are the individual pieces… Ad here they are set up…
I decided to make a pull-out drawer for the ~7” gap between cabinets. I toyed with different uses and came up with clamp storage. This freed up two drawers for other uses. I need to find a decent way to make replaceable labels for the drawers.

But the bandsaw had it out for me my partner said ” you make the other cut ” I said ” I’m not good sat the band saw it hates me” he left so I started cutting I wanted to cut the ends of the oak piece first so I could round it off and the first corner worked...

I’m talking to my mom the other day and she tells me, ” oh I was down in grandmas cellar and I saw an old girl scout cookie box. It had some of those skinny plane things you like”. Naturally I started to salivate.As luck would have it, circumstances prevented me from obtaining them for a whole week. Since my mom was really vague on the description the suspense was killing me. Finally I obtained the box and as I opened it a beam of light shown out and a choir of angels sang...
Wow, it has been a while… I’m sure other weekend woodworkers have experienced the reality of life interrupting well intended plans. Since beginning this project, so much other stuff has happened. Not only am I now part of a new company transitioning into an Armor company – where out of only 9 people, I am 1 of 2 who actually have experience on tanks – but I also volunteered to be a Cub Scout Wolf Den leader… so much of my time has been spent with my son…...
After taking a whole day to clean rust spots off my nice tools, I got smart and finally closed the damn cabinet doors. I blogged about it here… http://dcwwoodworks.com/blog/2014/8/19/a-tool-cabinet-not-a-tool-display-case Thanks
