Hey Everyone, In this episode i give an overview of template routing. My sample pieces are the aprons from the bubinga tea table so of course there’s no room to mess around!!! I go over bits as well as safety and techniques for getting the best out of your templates. Hope you guys like it!! here’s the link to it at my blog as well http://teenagewoodworker.wordpress.com/2010/03/20/template-routing/
So last time i worked on cutting the curves in the aprons for the pie crust table. now its time to move on to the legs as well as the candle slide. neither of these are done yet but i figured I’d just give a little update. the legs are cabriolet legs. Eli helped me design them and i have them cut out right now. just waiting to spokeshave them up and chisel them and all that good stuff to finesse them. they’re looking good so far though and I’m really satisfied with the shape...
Recently I’ve made the effort to learn more about hand planes so I’ve posted some of that info over on my personal blog. I’ve been reading and watching the recent book and DVD by Christopher Schwarz and I can tell you I feel like I’ve went up another level in my woodworking skills. My limited success has given me the confidence and excitement to continue pursuing the use of hand planes. I’m by no means a hand tool only woodworker and probably never will be, kudos...
I’ve upgraded my blog over at blogspot. Hopefully it’ll be a little easier to navigate and looks a little smother. Let me know what you think
There was a book written a few years ago entitled Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff. While I am not an advocate of violence, I do sometimes entertain the thoughts of various purgatories for the author. I do understand Richard Carlson’s point about trying to live life stress free and not worry so much about little things, but it is the little things that often make or break us. As Charles Bukowski once wrote - it’s not the large things thatsend a man to themadhouse, death he&...
Okay, so I’ve been bored tonight. Ridiculously bored. So bored even TV wasn’t doing it for me. What do you do with that kind of boredom? Especially right after you’ve installed Cool Blocks on your 14” bandsaw? Any other forum, and the answers would vary widely. “Eat some chocolate.” “Go to bed, it’s late anyway.” “Call up some friends and meet ‘em at the bar.” But here, in this illustrious company, I’m sure...

Getting to the point that I am starting to think about how I might finish the live edge walnut table I am currently working on. The table top consists of two book matched 10/4 slabs and I want to make sure that they look great. Take a look and let me know if you have any suggestions…Thanks http://thistlewoodworks.wordpress.com/
Some blogs posts are better than others. Some blog posts absolutely stink…pun intended…(it will make sense if you ready yesterday’s post). And some of them I write to make myself chuckle. Today I got a bit creative, mostly to entertain myself. I succeeded! I am very entertained, and now I am going to go watch Ohio State University play in the NCAA basketball tournament. I hope you enjoy. http://bit.ly/bkiEUk
I have just received my new Powermatic benchtop mortiser. It looks awesome in my shop. I set it up and tested some cuts. Its pretty cool. I got the chisel/auger from woodcraft for $17. This particular piece is not great quality. I can’t remember the brand but it is made in China and it howls….seriously, consider this a review for the woodcraft hollow chisels….they are less than expected quality. I have used other mortisers and they are a bit loud at times but this one...
