After building my gas can guitar, I thought that I would build a canjo, or “banjo out of a gas can”. Basically, the guitar with a 5th string. After doing some research, (web surfing), I ran across this plan for making a “real” banjo. Here is my weekend progress on the neck of the banjo. It is made from three pieces of madrone laminated together with black walnut for the finger board, and quarter sawn sycamore for the peg head. I will use either ebony or a bone ...
The second in a series of videos about building a Allan Little desighed Ultimate work table, as seen on AskWoodMan.TV,s YouTube channel.
Well, after much thinking and planning, we have finally decided to put a workshop in my mom’s basement. My mom and I have been trying to think of a way to get a workshop since I lost mine about a little over a year ago. I am a chip carver/scroller and my mom does lathe work. I started this blog to track our progress in building and setting up the shop. We are using only part of the basement. The corner with the most open area. When it is finished it will be about 11’x11’...
My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1524: NWA Woorworkers Showcase in Saratogo Springs, NY
As we close out the final weekend of March, I can't help but be amazed at how quickly the year is passing by. I realize that for most who have been experiencing an exceptionally snowy winter, time is not moving fast enough.

It seemed to have a problem running slow in the morning and after running a...

So I was sitting one day trying to figure out what to do with a big chunk of cherry that a friend had given me.see the thing is that it wasn’t dried properly so it cracked like a toronto city road and had knots all thru it…. I didn’t have the heart to tell my friend it was useless. Plus I was stubborn and determined to find a way to make something nice out of it.I cut a couple useful chunks off to use as accent pieces in the future, but mostly it just keep getting put under...
They say that time flies. I think that’s a fib. I don’t think it’s true when you live across the street from a nightmare. It now had become a ‘daymare’. I work split shifts and am home at least six hours a day during the daylight hours. I work in my woodshop during that time. I like having my garage door open. I leave it open so I can see what’s going on across the street and around the neighborhood. My workshop has become the neighborhood center point. We came to live in this neig...
I just added a free scroll saw pattern to my Blog over at http://scrollsawworkshop.blogspot.com . This is a simple to cut mantel clock for beginning scrollers. I have not posted any of my work here yet so I thought this was a good time. If anyone here likes to use the scroll saw come on by and download the free pattern. Most of the patterns I post on my site are aimed at beginning scrollers. If you want to use up some scrap wood, and your scroll saw is just sitting in the corner why not come ...
