I am starting to make a stock and pump arm for a Crosman 1377 pellet gun. I thought that I would keep record of making it here on this blog. It will hopefully serve as a reference for myself and anyone else that may be interested in attempting to make one for themselves. I am making this particular one out of sapele, an african hardwood similar to mahogany in appearance and working properties. I think sapele is richer in brown with a hint of red in color and it has some really spectacul...
Hi all, hope you are all happy woodworkers. The weather is getting colder, and the leaves are falling. My stomach is aching for some Turkey…. Today’s post is of a Chair leg I was hired to repair for a client..This was a pretty basic repair. The designer of this chair was well, #$%$%. The chair leg is made up of two pieces. The portion of the leg that broke was a miter glue joint. No dowels, just face glued. Well the pressure of the person on the chair creates a wedging affect on the joint, an...

http://youtu.be/YPExdu94caY In this video I show you how I make this simple multipurpose out-feed table for the table saw using simple construction methods. While I constructed this table to be used as my out feed table, it could just as easily be used for anything from a light weight workbench to a solid finishing table with a removable top.

I didn’t have a bunch of shop time this weekend, but I managed to whip up a retainer of sorts for my respirators that I mounted to the door. Even though it was plainly obvious to me, it was not to other members of the household… I also managed to hunt down the one nagging leak left in the compressed air system (at least with only the 29 gallon job connected). It turns out perfectly good LOOKING threads don’t always want to seal no matter what you try… I am now wo...
I thought it would help to take a step back on my hand plane tuning blog posts and provide a little background on my hand plane journey of the past few days. ContextAsk anyone for recommendations on a first hand plane, and you’re bound to get a large number folks recommending looking for a pre-WWII hand plane. Personally I’ve never really thought of that to be a good answer (for me) because I think that there is an implied “cost” (time, effort, and money) involved w...
I am checking in a little late today because yesterday the day got away from me and I was doing the final editing and proofreading on my SLD489 Layered Heart Damask Box with Monogram pattern. I actually finished everything up early this morning, and I sent all the orders out from last night for the patterns. If you ordered one and I missed you, please let me know and I will get it to you right away. :)We finished our site update yesterday. And in addition to the pattern for the above desig...
Well it’s been a little while since I have done a whole lot on here. That’s because because of a few reasons. I also back off of my business to. I didn’t really do anything with it from. December of 2013 to July of last year. Then that’s when I started do things with it again. In July I started to think of a different name , also making a new product (which I will talk more about those things in my next blog) and just get back into it again. In the last six months...
Hello again. So I finished painting the wolf head. Now I need to apply four coats of clear pre cat lacquer on the front and one coat on the back. Here are some pictures of the paint job.
