Well folks, I’ve got almost all of my stock milled down and ready to go! I went to the planing mill (Hicksville Planing Mill) and bought quite a bit of wormy maple. (I believe it is the Ambrosia bug that crawls in the wood and makes all sorts of colors in the surrounding wood. It is also called Ambrosia Maple) I was in for quite a surprise! I was looking for some spalted maple, but this stuff was only $1.75 a B.F.!!!I bought all I needed (and then some), they even surfaced it f...
The church services auction is this weekend so I thought I’d turn a pen to donate in addition to my cutting board. This is my effort – raises a few questions for you all. First, Miss Kitty says Hello. OK – here’s the pen. This pen is the European style from Woodcraft. When you have a pen with a design like this – do you line up the design with the pen closed or open? I’m sure it’s probably a personal choice – but what are ...
I finished prepping the boards for the last of the 6” chunks You can see the glued up chunks on the floor here, one mid-glue on table. I put the big chunks on the bench, and began fitting them together, The clamps are just enough pressure to keep the boards together so I can locate the high spots and the gaps for fine tuning. And the first “chunk” glueup! Yes, thats a domino hole. I was toying with the idea of using them to line up the top, but bailed ...
Here’s a quick and dirty card scraper holder I built out of maple. I burnt the hell out of my thumbs a few weeks ago after a long session with the scraper, so I felt the need to make one of these. I used a small diameter knob I had lying around to adjust the curve of the scraper. This scraper holder works great. I just wish I would have built ti BEFORE I got the giant blisters on my thumbs!
I’d first like to thank T chisel for his very informative video on making half blind dovetails. I watched it this morning and went right out to the shop ready to try out his method. It works very well! I succesfully made two sides in about one hour. It’s no speed record, but the joint is pretty tight. I’m hooked now, and will NOT be spending the cash for a Leigh jig anytime soon, now that I know I can handle making my own variable spaced dovetails. I made a little 1:6 sho...
If you want to see the series go here http://lumberjocks.com/itsme_timd/blog/7925 All good things must come to and end and I had to pack all the pen trade goodies back into a brand new box to travel back to Tim in Georgia.

I took the following out of the box:1 fiddleback maple blank1 challenge 391B blank from Steve1 challenge 391 blank from Karson1 wine stain bl...
