We have had rain for several days as the remnants of the hurricane that hit the Baja has drifted over Texas and onto our heads! So I couldn’t go to the lumber yard. Instead, I went through my lumber rack and dug up all of the maple I could find and a few pieces of poplar. I managed to mill enough for the six top drawers. These drawers have 4 inch sides so there were a few pieces that got glued together and then milled. The drawer fronts have half blind dovetails. The rear of e...
A couple years ago a young lady I work with was shot during a carjacking attempt and left paralyzed from the waist down. At the time she was pregnant with her first child and asked me to develop nursery furniture that would allow her to care for her baby from her wheelchair. This experience led to Village Lane Furniture which has become my pet project. Because of this young lady, I became aware of a furniture audience that is frequently overlooked; wheelchair parents and people with disa...

While not new to the web and certainly not new to turning lumber into sawdust, I only found this site a few weeks ago and decided to join. Wow over a dozen “welcome” messages in only a day or two…. I’m impressed with the camraderie here to say the least. Hopefully, I’ll become a useful addition to the site. There’s certainly plenty I can learn from the rest of you fine folks. A little about me.. I’m 55 yrs old, just recently out of work alo...

“It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.” .....Muhammad Ali, Heavyweight boxing champ…1942 - One of the benefits of creating “Wolf’s Tooth” wood inlay bandings is that you actually get two bandings for the effort of one. What do I mean by this? When the initial cuts from the laminated stock are made on the table saw using the dedicated miter saw we flip th...
I picked this little lathe up in early december, again with a 20% off coupon and on sale, so I paid about $155 for it. My wife gave me some turning tools for Christmas (which were on my list and expected). So far I turned a couple of little spindle tests out of pine. It’s fun and the lathe seems to work well. More later.
Managed to get out to the barn today. Needed to work on a desk’s top. Started out with a scrub plane to level the glue joints. Then it was the Jack plane’s turn. After that, a smooth plane went to work. Stanley handyman #4, with a shaving. Why all the handplane work? Sandpaper costs money. Anyway, i worked the top down to as smooth and flat as i could next it was time to set-up for a breadboard edge. Done with the Tablesaw, This was after i handsawe...
I must admit that I was a bit unfocused yesterday. I didn’t have my usual drive and ambition and saw myself moving at a much slower pace than what I have become used to. Is that a bad thing? I don’t know. I don’t really think it is anything permanent, but just perhaps the after effects of the last several weeks of working at full tilt. While I know that this is only temporary, when I really thought about all the things I still have to do I realized that this slower ...
