For the project I am currently working on, I required a perfect curve for the front of a desk and for two shelves. Because the top material is Melamine Faced Chipboard, I decided to strengthen this by using construction grade ply. This gave me a good practice material to get the curve right, before cutting the MFC, which is 3 times the price of ply! Although I own two routers, I have never really used them to cut. I was looking through Fine Woodworking website and came across a build off vide...
In a recent forum topic I asked for help on curving a desk front. A suggestion came from Kent Shepherd to try water or steam bending. I have to say that I instantly dismissed this idea, more through fear of the unknown than anything else!Well, I tried laminating 4mm strips of oak, but just couldn’t get the finish I wanted, so, I decided to at least look into steam bending. Well, yet again, my Lumberjocks family has come through!I didn’t have to look very hard to find lots of entri...
Hello Friends! I am finally back from Iraq (back to Germany with my family that is) and have started the process of making new Totes and Knobs for my Bailey collection for my #3,#4,#5.#6, and #7. I posted earlier about my “Deployment Gift” purchase http://lumberjocks.com/topics/18574 that included new Hock Blades. I was able to print out LeeValley’s Tote diagram and successfully rough new Totes for my entire Bailey collection. Tomorrow I will turn the front Knobs and hopefu...

Walnut n wrought iron wine rack.
So, yesterday, I spent more time working on my daughter’s dollhouse. Damn, there are LOTS of little parts to sand. Wow. Yeah, so there’s that. But, I also did some work on my new big toy, the old 50’s Craftsman 6” jointer. I was rusted all to heck, but I bought a bottle of Evapo-rust, and I have been soaking the parts in it. This stuff kicks some ass! If you have rust you need to get rid of, get some of this stuff. It melts away. Plus, it’s not an ...
Hello All, I am back at my parents, as my computer broke. I couldn’t do woodworking, so I did some creative writing. It is a strange blog piece. http://extremelyaverage.com/2010/09/the-80-year-war/ Brian
So I’m in my motherland enjoying the cool September weather, the amazing food and drink, and the hospitality of these friendly Germans. Life is good. If only my family could be with me! We had a bit of free time the other day so I latched on to a guy going to a nearby town (Grünberg) that has a hardware store. I’m not in the market for anything in particular – I just wanted to browse around. So we ended up at Herkules, which sounds like a cool name for a hardware store. I...
