Almost got this box about sized up. Some tweaking at the corners, maybe. Time to add a bottom? Needs a groove made in the sides of the box, so A Plough plane to cut some 1/4” by 1/4” grooves. Plane just MIGHT be a tad older than me? I had a piece of pine scrap, almost the right sizes for the box. needed a rebate around the edges, though So, a Wards #78 set to take a bit of the top, er, bottom of the panel. Seems I had the panel a might too smooth and shiny. ...

New video: Making this herb planter. Special Shout Out to RedBeard for the inspiration for this project! http://youtu.be/qIYLKFIXJL0
I bought my Craftsman table saw about 6 years ago now and it’s been a good saw as long as you took extra special care to ensure the horrid fence it came with was straight each and every time you moved it. The fence system that came in these saw is appalling to say the least and down right garbage when compared to a good biesemeyer style fence. Last week using the saw, I moved the fence and spent several minutes trying to get it straight so I didn’t ruin the beautiful piece of curl...
Disclaimer: If you are offended by my references to my Christian Faith, PLEASE DO NOT READ ANY OF MY POSTS. THANK YOU. I have a brand new Work Shop being built for me. I’ll tell you about it in a minute, but first….... I figured it was time for an update on my blog. I’ve been busy this week finishing a few projects before I go into the hospital Tuesday. I also prefabbed a few pieces for a box that I might feel like working on when I get home. The Radiologist is goi...
Ok, so turns out taking care of a sick wife, her taking care of me having a torn up body and brain and the two of us taking care of two kids takes more balancing than I thought.:) My ability to adapt has obviously been slowed since I was in the military. Anyway, what matters most is that we are moving ever forward! Thanks so much family for your patience! You guys rock! So, going back in time. When the men from the church came over to fill the trenches I was running around like a mad man t...
I’ve decided to embark on a journey to try to build my version of a Les Paul style guitar. I am anticipating that most of the time on this project will be spent making various jigs and just trying to figure out the best construction sequence. Day 1. (Only about an hour) The billet of Claro Walnut arrived today. ($70). It was about 2-1/4” thick x 8” wide x 20” long. The task for today was to square everything up and split the billet into two halves for book m...
Hnefatafl Board is made from English Oak engineered floor boards. The strips dividing the squares are made from Iroku as are the end grain black dots.The frame is English walnut. And the pieces are english oak, unknown redish hardwood, King is unknown black streaky hardwood
Sorted boards to get the straightest ones, then hit them with a wire brush to get the dirt off of them. Jointer-jointer-planer-table saw Flat face – square and flat edge – parallel and flat opposite face – parallel square and flat opposite edge When ripping I was only taking a skim cut to minimize loss of width. This can be really messy with most of the sawdust blowing back on me, so I set up the shop vac with a funnel to catch most of it…. I stickered...
Here the logs are on the trailer, 5 logs total measuring from 4’, 3’x6”, 2’9”, 3’3” and 3’2” but now I have a problem, getting them to the mill is not the problem as they’re already loaded but after loading I was assuming everything was going to be OK, It was a most awful pain, man handling these logs from the back yard to the front and loading them on the trailer all by myself they were very… heavy that’s the reason I ...
