I feel like I have been on vacation for a month! I am not sure why, because I was doing things all the time. Lots of them had to do with the business too. But I suppose the main focus was getting my personal stuff done and really enjoying the holiday. And that I did. I have been wishing for snow for the last several days now. Having a beautiful white blanket during the holidays just sets the mood right for me. We have received nothing but a couple of light flurries which dusted the l...
So for Christmas I received a couple of additions to my woodworking line up with some clear expectations from the family to start cranking out some projects. For starters I figured I would build the wife a new king bed. We have a metal bed frame and all wood furniture. The wife wants a wood bed that goes with the rest of the set. The bed is going to be painted black so I will be building it out of poplar and birch. I’m not 100% confident in the design so far. I looked at some pict...

I almost titled this “Screw Up #2” since I had a little mishap when cutting the spline slots on the first top I made. I had my router set up in a table and cut the slots in all of the breadboard ends. Then I pulled the whole router with plate out of the table, flipped it over, and cut the slots on my top. Then I discovered that the router had somehow moved a strong 1/32” and the slots were noticably off center. I let out a pretty good string of 4 letter words but then realiz...
Got home a little while ago with gifts from my in-laws – Christmas was belated this year as my wife is a nurse and had to work last night, so we went over to her parents house tonight. The tools I’m really excited about are the two new Lee Valley/Veritas plane blades I got. The #8 I bought had a blade that was extremely pitted and pretty much un-salvageable, so I put a 2 5/8” A2 blade on my list alone with a 2” for the cheapo #4 I have (on the premise that I’ll...
I was gifted by a very generous Lumberjock with a Skilsaw. I just recently used it to crosscut some hard maple, and I wanted to say thank you again to Jim C (it works great!). Also, I wish all of you here a Merry Christmas. That was the early Christmas gift. The late Christmas gifts are for my parents which I am just now working on: A wine balancer & A cutting board. You can see all three gifts in the the pictures
Here’s a picture of what my wife got me for Christmas… this gift was based on advice from Steve Ramsey's video for the spouses of woodworkers on gifts. Great Big Thanks to Steve!!!! (BTW, Steve’s Blog site Woodworking for Mere Mortals is great fun and, once in a while, actually informative grin; Be sure to sign up to follow his blog!) Anyway, on to the gift! A very nice S4S piece of Cocobolo, about 1.2 bdft! Don’t know what I’m going to make with th...
There were points in this process that I didn’t think I’d get this far. I took some vacation time and spent the past few days trying to get the top finished up. My goal was to have it completely glued up before the first of the year. I’m glad to say that despite a few set backs, I’m a week ahead of my goal. Not only is it a big motivational factor in a long bench building process, but it’ll also allow me to take a few days off to let my achy planing / sawing m...
