In most Russian families even not religious ones on Easter people cook a special dish. It is called ‘paskha’ (the same Russian word for Easter). It is made essentially from curd (cottage cheese) and other components and looks like truncated pyramid. To cook it one must have a special mold. It is called ‘pasochnitsa’ (from the word paskha). In previous times people made these moldes themselves from wood. And this item often stayed in a family for many generations. Now...

Monogrammed, sanded, and 50/50 turp and linseed oil applied, one coat of full strength to go!
To cut the mortises for the leg tenons, I went back to the masking tape. Laid some strips down, and lined up the first leg to be flush with the front of the bench. This leg will ultimately be the leg vise. I had deliberated left some extra space between two of the dog holes to ensure the leg would fit. It was easy to knife the outer faces of the tenons, but the inner faces are a bit harder. Because I know the tenons are dead straight, I simply knifed about 1” in on both ends. Afte...
I found a nice article on buiding a Greene and Greene Table side table. Thought this might be helpful to the contest. Fine woodworking is a fine magazine, and a great website. http://www.taunton.com/finewoodworking/FWNPDF/011171036.pdf
I’ve been playing with Sketchup a little bit when I have free time, and decided to make a model of my friends gated entry into the backyard. The post caps are the same as the ones I’m showing him how to make. I enjoy working in Sketchup, but right now I’m so slow in designing that I could almost have something built before I can model it. The images may be cut off, if so you can click on them to see the full size image.
Some thoughts on secret compartments can be found in another blog I wrote on a rainy day (spoiler alert – of no educational value). Just some pics during work… Router out what’s going to be the hidden compartment… Once it’s glued together, router out the sliding dovetail – not easy with no router table, but this is what i came up with… Cut the other half of the dovetail in what’s going to be the base… As always, ...
I am currently looking for products to add to my store. I want to supply woodshops big and small with all sorts of screws and fasteners. I am working on getting abrasives and other types of papers. But do you have an idea of something maybe thats hard to get or a hassle to find? I’m currently offering small to mid-sized bulk orders on fasteners, locks, and hardware. I want to expand without going to far into the power tool area. Like i said cabinet building hardwaer is what I got. I&...
I had always been disappointed with my light setup at the lathe. Until recently I had a 4ft. fluorescent light with 2 T8 daylight bulbs directly above the lathe and 3 100watt equivalent low voltage bulbs mounted in clip on fixtures from HD. It was adequate but I was constantly moving the clip ons or they would just slip and need to be readjusted. Then I stumbled upon this picture I had saved on my work computer. I couldn’t remember where I had copied it from but then, while resea...
I picked up this dresser thanks to craigslist.com~~ free section. As you can see the previous owner dreiced to pain the whole thing PINK!!! The construction is solid and the dovetails are still tight, whick is always a plus. This picture is of the sides. You can see that there is an additional panel that I haven’t decided whether or not I’m gonna keep it. Any thoughts here would be greatly appreciated. As far as my plans I am going to take off the olf v...
