The baby is nearly a month old – little boy cute as a button – so it’s time to deliver the nightlight. All that’s left to do is add another coat of wipe on poly and add the electrical parts. The design for this is from Woodsmith, published a bunch of years ago (at least 6 probably more). I’ve made two of these before, both in cherry. For this one I decided to do it in Walnut. I also customized 3 of the light panels (there are 4) on this rather than use the...
So this is where I left off. I moved the hutch inside for a dress rehearsal on the buffet. Back out to the shop / garage for the finish. 2 coats of diy WOP. After a days set up and drying I sprayed the whole project over 3 days with 4 coats of water born Varathane. After at the Varathane hardened I installed the drawer hardware. Finished doors Making the trim to secure the mirrors and glass panels. I used 1/4” plywood to provide backing for the mirrors and slotted washers to...
Every tale must have an end. I like to stretch mine, somewhat. I love L.A. And, this is the heart of the City. Having given the camera back to my Really Big Thithter, she turned it on me, unawares. I’d gotten gregarious with the young woman at the bakery counter. The sidewalk at the entrance, which RBS photographed (I hadn’t thought of it.) This is original. From @1935. Now, for just a taste of L.A. at street level. This is the facade of Clifton’s. Before th...
After the base assembly is complete, I start working on the sliding mechanism that will carry the split top. I use maple for some of the parts, and walnut for the slides that will be attached to the table top when I complete it. Although not very complex, it is a design that demands precision to work correctly. You Tube Link – https://youtu.be/KXypIMnhh3g As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To get updates of this build as I go along, please follow me on Inst...
A couple of videos ago I made an unsafe cut. I am putting this up to correct my mistake. It was a dumb move. Thanks to those who pointed it out to me. https://youtu.be/BT1ZPF6ZmSM
I’ve been far and wide to show my work and come upon mixed reviews. There are so many aircraft types and eras to model. I chose a lot of different projects for the pure diversity. Building models versus making models is in debate but when one has to fabricate parts pieces from raw materials it’s “making a model then build it”.... had to drop that forum. Pilots like to have a model of their beloved aircraft.! I get rather close to make sure the details come out c...
I decided that I’d take a few smaller baby steps before I tried to make a scoop on my own. So I’ve been working a little more on learning how the tools work and feel, etc. So, yes I made another round thing—- but this one is soooo much better than the last. This one is silky smooth – like glass in fact. I discovered scrapers! I can’t figure out how to turn the flash off on my camera so my pictures are not the best. But drum roll please——ta ...
I am really excited about my my trip to conduct interviews with prominent woodworkers! I wanted to leave Minneapolis early on Monday, but I didn’t get on the road until after 4PM. I have been behind the wheel ever since, but I did take a few pictures along the way. I had always heard of the Corn Palace in Mitchell SD so when I realized that I happened to be right there I had to stop and take a few pictures. They take their corn very seriously in South Dakota!! I als...

Since my last entry I have spent one and a bit days working on the bench.This has involved sizing the verticals, cutting the tenons on the ends of the verticals and cutting the mortice for the stub tenon in the stretchers. SizingSizing the verticals was done on the jointer, table saw and thicknesser. The jointer was used to get two side straight and at right ankles to each other. The dimension for the width of the vertical (that is from the side, not the end) required that it be about si...
