Hello again… Due to backing up septic tanks and clogged pipes I was not able to get into the shop until Saturday. I accomplished everything on my list for the week and will continue Sunday with more sanding of the seat, leg shaping and then glue the legs and seat together by mid-week next week. For now, on to today’s progress: Started out with a 1 1/2 hour sanding marathon. 45 minutes per arm:Here is a picture of the 1st arm sanded next to the arm that has not been tou...
I continue to be amazed by how many amazing things there are out there by which to be amazed. I find new ones every day online, and have for the last decade. One I found this week is a 1/500th scale miniature of all of Moscow, built in 1988, and maintained ever since. It looks to be all balsa, or basswood. If the city changes, or a new house is built, they correct the model. It’s stayed current for the last 2 decades. Tons more pictures How hard could it be?
I made my latest post. This one. It’s #20,000. in a little over three years. So Keith not all of us show up and then disappear. I’ve had a lot of fun and I hope that I’ve help a few people along in their woodworking. I hope that I don’t make anyone mad about comments that I make. I’ve learn’t most of what I know from the school of hard splinters. That’s not to say that harder teachers didn’t help alos. They did. Sometimes I was responsive ...

After being layed up for over 10 weeks I am finally getting back to work! I have worked in Lowe’s tool department for over a year and planning on going back again part time. My wife wants 120 feet of picket fence and two arbors built for the garden. Before I got layed up I was building an entertainment center which needs to be finished. I want to build my shop cabinets and buy the rest of my equipment and finish setting up the shop. These things should keep me busy for the next couple o...
I was asked how I made the hinge on my recent box project and have decided to attempt to write a blog about it. So here it goes. Sorry if none of it makes sense, or if it isn’t clear enough for you. Please feel free to ask more questions or even give suggestions if you have any. If it needs improvements I’m all ears. First you will need some basic essentials. They are:2 different size dowels, the sizes best suited for your project2 different size drill bits to match the dow...
I glued down the tiles that I had made. I’ll have to wait a few days before I can stain them. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Well, my fellow Alvaradotian (Alvaradoite?), Tim Marko, just dropped by a couple of hours ago. He’s probably not even home yet and I’m posting about it. Tim’s a nice guy and some of the projects he brought over to show me are just wonderful. I should have taken photos of those! Anyway, I showed him around my shop, my office, showed off lots of candle holders and wine rests, and we talked a lot about where to buy wood in this area. He seems to know a lot more about buyi...
