Neighbor asked if I’d consider making a pullout cabinet for her newly remodeled bathroom. Came up with a sketch she liked and ran with it. The shelves are genuine mahogany with maple & wenge accent dots, and the large side panel is cherry and maple. Took awhile to get this far working weekends and before/after work and I still have quite a long ways to go. I believe these pics should be in chronological order beginning with the roughly dimensioned shelves getting dominoes and end...
View on YouTube I had an amazing time at Woodworking in America. This was my first time there and I wasn’t 100% sure what to expect. As always, one of my biggest concerns was meeting and hanging out with new people and that was NO PROBLEM! Everyone I met was not just friendly, but downright welcoming. I wrote a complete blog article on my website with LOTS of pictures if you want to know more. I hope you don’t mind that I didn’t post all the pictures here. I figure...
Machineshop benefits in woodworking #7: modifying my harbor freight workbench vise and adding clamping capability.
I am making some clamping brackets that work like the jerguson style bar clamp brackets, to be used on my woodworking bench, I can’t use the already made jerguson clamp adjustable bracket, because it will interfere with the benchtop that I want to use it on, so I made my own style of clamp brackets. https://youtu.be/IUfLjcOhbmU have fun in the shop…

I’m finally getting serious about dust collection and am going to buy a cyclone machine. I’ve narrowed down the brand but I haven’t decided whether to go with the 1.5hp model or the 2hp model. The 2hp is about $400 more expensive plus it adds the expense of running 220 wiring into my basement. I’ve got a full array of machines and know the basic CFM requirements for each. I am a one-man operation, so only one machine will be going at a time. The 1.5hp model I’m l...
I should have been updating this more often instead of posting all of the pictures at once but I guess I’ll be better about it next time. Once the base and frame were assembled I opened the motor and found how jammed it was full of saw dust. After cleaning it out I changed out the switch for a paddle switch. After the switch was mounted I enclosed the bottom of the saw with plywood for dust collection. I installed the factory fence and realized how wobbly it was so I upgraded to a V...
As some of you may have noticed, I haven't been posting as regularly as you all may have been used to. It seems that the past couple of months have been a bit unsettling for me and I have been a little bit distracted. I don't know if reading about our move is becoming tiring to you all or not. I hope it isn't. I am finding that settling in has taken much longer than I have anticipated and there is really no way around being distracted. After all, both living and working from ...
Today I commenced making a base for my sons New 1500 mm x 1500mm Dining Table. Originally he was going to fabricate a metal base however after seeing “Wally’s Huon Beams” he decided I should do it instead! He sent me the design of what he was going to build and asked it I could use the beams and make it in wood.making the vertical post 150mm x 150mm the legs 1m x 150mm x 75mm and the support braces 100mm x 70mm. I agreed of course, what else had I to do but work ou...

And then one time I ate some rotten berries. Man, there were some strong gases seepin’ outta my shop that day! This was a big decision/change I made during my build: to use Gas or Electric heat. I figured the requirements for heating & cooling for the space before starting any of my permitting or design work, mainly so I could start shopping around for the big ticket items. I was hoping that given enough time, I could scrounge up a heating unit, compressor, air filtration,...
