After many weeks away from the pergola project, which included an unexpected trip trip to Johns Hopkins in Maryland, I am back on track I hope. Finally got around to making the jig I need to cut the notches in the pergola slats. First I needed to make a template at the correct angle (105°) for the notch… which went smoothly, and gives me the necessary shape to align the jig. Next I made the spacers, each angled at 105°, for the inside of the jig. Initially they were b...

Searching the term Google.com.mx Carpinteria not found anything interesting pages dedicated to carpentry. Attempting to call Bricolage there are some pages of carpentry, but in other countries, not mexico.How many know that means bricolage (the French “bricoleur,” or “do it yourself”) but I think everyone in mexico at least we know what it means “carpentry”.However, seeking the end woodworking found many pages as well as groups with 2000 or 3000 participant...
This is something that I ‘m new to, blogging about the building process of a project while it is a work in progress. I thought I would give it a try. This will be a train bed for a customer that loves the Polor Express, so I’ll be working off that theme. Below is a picture of a train bund bed that I built havebefore. This is what the customer saw to inspire this new design. You can watch the live video at our live link on my site. Tune in to watch it being built. Don̵...

Now I have the following items.1. Router table with a 3/4” pattern bit installed in the router.2. Drawer front3. Drawer sides4. Router template/jig Using your template and drawer side stacked, adjust the bit height so that the cut is a 1/64” too deep (if I set it flush I end up unsatisfied with the fit) Set the template on the end of the drawer front with the best grain towards the template fence . Then center the front so that the teeth (for lack of a better term) are even,...
G’day fellow woodworkers. Here’s the YT intro to my latest project (as seen in the Projects section). Dang, ain’t I pretty? Thanks for looking! Building the Ultimate Shop Stool>
I’ve been extremely busy since my last blog entry and have not had much time to work on the band saw much. I was only able to work on it for a few hours here and there. So far I’ve been able to disassemble the machine down to its frame. Here are a few pictures. As you can see the tires will definately have to be replaced, the table will need to be cleaned up, and I’ll need to replace the thrust bearings. The tires, I suspect, will be the bulk of th...
I am a big board game geek and because of that I have been trying to think of how to tie my new hobby of woodworking with the joy of playing board games. I decided to make a simple dice tower. A dice tower helps you roll dice to ensure no cheating as well as keep the dice from falling off the table and away from knocking all the pieces off the board. I found several ideas online and went from there. I decided for the randomizer inside the tower I would use 2×2 blocks cut into a spi...
