How to use a KerfmakerOk, many asked me this question, and I have seen it again and again on LJ. If you need to find out how to make one, you can see my Kerfmaker 'Brass'n wood'. Another fun gadget is the tenonmarker:http://lumberjocks.com/projects/39236 I’ll try to explain, as well as I can, feel free to ask questions if I do not make myself clear (I’m only human): Collect what is needed, in this case a base stock and two thinner side stocks, and of course a Kerfmaker...

Hello fellow lumberjocks. Thank you for all the comments and advice you guys gave me on my first post last week. To answer few of the questions that I got asked is I do build the complete bunk bed or loft bed whatever the customer ordered.

I am however, going to get to the scroll saw and get some cutting done. I have been working on an order for something on the side and I am determined to finish cutting it today. It’s funny how little time I get to spend ‘in the shop’ or actually physically cutting. When I st...

There are numerous photos that reveal previous...

Hello All, Today the blog is back to normal (for almost everyone). There was an issue for one of my readers, who has a router which flagged my site last week during the hacking debacle. She has had trouble getting back to my site ans her router continues to block it. If any of you fine LJ folks are having troubles, it may be something similar. As for writing the blog, it was nice to not be railing against the evil hacker. I am moving on an continuing with my ikebana building. It is...
