If you have been thinking of installing a wooden floor in your shop you might want to consider the following alternative. Here is a pic of my shop floor. I painted it 9 years before this photo was taken. ”<href>“ A proven methodThis is standard fare here in Norway which has extremely high building standards and strict codes. I have done many basement rooms this way in two other houses I owned here. I don’t have a basement in my current home, but I have used the foll...
My son (4 yrs. old) received a baseball bat and ball autographed by Randy Winn of the San Francisco Giants. (Go Giants!) This is the display case I built to show them off. And also to keep him from running around the house and smashing things with the bat. The case is made of cherry wood. The front door of the case has 1/4” safety glass. The frame is joined with mortise and tenons. The glass fits into a rabbet in the back and is held in place by 8 wooden brackets. The sides of the ca...
About three weeks ago, I let everyone know that Charles Neil had invited me to build a mahogany lowboy in my shop, following him along as he builds a mahogany lowboy on his, “Mastering Woodworking” series subscription webisode. He will furnish all the material, patterns and know-how. Charles has started his webisode and is now into his third week, having covered how to get started on veneering, and great details on making cabriole legs and how to plan the morticing and now putti...
Birger Sandzen Landscape project #1: Birger Sandzen landscape carving and hydrostone casting ... Which is which?
Hey Guys … I bought a carving … or rather commissioned a piece with my buddy Tuanie. I gave him some Sanzden woodcut print photos and he carved me a mahogany tile master. It is a long story, but I got the carving delivered from Sri Lanka. I sanded it to 1000 grit and finished it with my dye, stain, shellac and wax recipe that I used on my frames.... ..I then bought some two part urethane concrete mold mix and made a rubber mold from the mahogany carving.... with the rubber m...
Well I started this turning some time last week to go with the dozen other projects I have going. The idea is to inlay some marquetry around the top boarder and to also make a lid and finial. The marquetry will be leaves and branches and will be an assortment of material like wenge, cocobolo, and maple.Here is the bowl. The rest will come in the following weeks, months, years, who knows. As always I welcome constructive criticism, positive or negative.

While blogging tonight…something killed a skunk outside…I can smell it inside. Ugh. I finished my blog, posted it and mention it here…I don’t know if it is good or not, but I can say with confidence that it stinks less than my house. http://bit.ly/aKKkD4 Ok, I am leaving for Des Moines. I don’t even have time to try to trick David or SPalm into giving it a read.
how can I keep the blade on my grizzly g1022sm from lowering itself while I am trying to make a cut?
I was off today so I got a couple of hours in the shop. My first task was to attach the two pieces of the seat together. I used my “homemade” glue and pocket screws. The last time I made a chair I used pocket screws to hold the seat together; however I failed to consider the top of the chair being scooped out. This time I measured where the screws were going and then measured the depth of the indent on the model chair. I set the pocket screw depth for the finished seat. You may be abl...
Many of you have heard my whine about the size of my shop and how cold it can get here in the great white North. Well last fall I lucked out and was blessed with the privilege of using all of the facility in this community shop. Please don’t ask me were it is I am sworn to secrecy and I do not want to loose my privileges . Here are a few pictures. I decided to write this because my last project was photographed on one of the TWO Saw Stops and I know I would have had to answer a lot of ...
