CLICK ON MY PROFILE (osageman) TO SEE THE PHOTO OF THE WOODEN SPOON. UNDER, LATEST PROJECTS… I can be contacted at, firstname.lastname@example.org if any one is interested in having me make a wooden utensil for them… How is everyone ! Sorry this is taking so long to set up… The suggestion I was given, was, to run the spoon guessing contest as a blog, so that is what I’ll do. No one had the right guess last month, so I will use the same spoon. If you check back and...

Not sure how many people have been waiting for this machine or watching the news on it, but it’s finally here. SawStop is finally releasing its brand new 10” Professional Cabinet Saw to dealers and woodworkers around the nation. This saw is a go-between model between their current industrial cabinet saw and contractor saw and provides a great piece of equipment for hobbyists and professionals a like. The saw comes available in two models: a 36” fence/rails model and a...
After getting my Murphy bed installed it is time to turn my attention to the side cabinets. I am going to use the basic plans that came with the Murphy bed hardware kit but will be needing to make some modifications. One of the major changes will be adapting the upper part of the cabinet to use an antique leaded glass door that my SO retrieved from an old house when she lived in northern Ohio. The other challenge will be modifying the right cabinet to account for a heat/ac vent that...
I thought I would jump in with safety week and share my trick for remembering which direction I want my router going. This might be old news to many of you but I came up with this on my own and it works for me. I use my right hand. I point my thumb to the edge that I’m going to be cutting and my index finger points in the direction the router needs to go. If I’m routing around the outside edge of a piece the I touch my thumb to the outside edge and I end up routing in a coun...
Thanks a lot for the warm welcome. I started working with wood recently with a couple of woodworking workshops offered at my college. My first ever project was the side table I completed a few days ago as part of a workshop I attended. It whetted my appetite, and now I look forward to working on an independent project. I am glad that there is a woodworking shop here that I can use which means zero start up cost. I will surely have questions for you guys as I start working on my next proj...
So in the first of this series I mentioned i,m starting an enterprise with no money, hardware store hand tools and a sheet of 3/4 in plywood. This is what happened to the plywood. Now like many on this site i,ve long dreamed of building my ultimate workbench and I must tell you in advance that this is not it! This is my answer to that chicken and egg argument about needing to build a bench so that you can then build a bench. Its taken directly from Shopnotes and haveing seen numerous 1 sheet ...
No pics yet or anything, but after looking at an ‘06 Ranger at the Ford dealer with 42k on it, I kind of fell for an ‘05 Tacoma with about 85k on it at the Toyota dealer. A little older, a bit more used, but it just had a lot more I wanted. It’s a certified pre-owned with 3yr/3k bumper-to-bumper, and 7yr/100k drivetrain warranties, power everything, AM/FM/CD, access cab – 2-door, but has a small back, and little half-doors that make loading things/passengers back there...
It is time to assemble the base for this massive bench. I gathered some air dried oak that I had left over from wedge stock when making windsor chairs and my drawknife. I carefully took the oak down to 5/16” thick since that was the size of holes I chose to drill to hold this all together. At first, I made the pegs square and cut them to length. Then I wised up and realized that if I carefully split that baby, I could save myself some effort and get 2 sets of pegs from one piece...
After 3 days of raining I finally was able to bring the main bed assembly up to the house to get ready for the final assembly and installation. The first thing I did was place the main assembly face down on the floor and set the outer case verticals on each side. After inseting the pivot pins of each vertical into the mating piece on the bed frame I used the E-clips to lock them in place. I then placed the head board in position and since I did not have one clamp that would span the ent...
