Well part of it anyway. A new set of eight clamping sticks, waxed this time and polished. Major squeeky bum (ass) time. Glue in a dish. Brush at the ready. Quick slurp of tea and there off…...........Pick up the piece, slap on the glue, position it in the frame. Repeat until you’re sure you’ve done something wrong. Put it right. Continue…...... After 20 minutes—->The glue was probably OK for another two rows but I bottled it (chickened out). Wasn’t used to ...

We painted the bedroom recently and decided to put up crown molding. Our house is 100 years old, and the Home Depot stuff just wasn’t getting us excited. We finally found a place here in Denver that specializes in old style moldings, since they’ve been in business since the moldings were originally created. Turns out we liked one of their in-stock moldings, so I’ve got 56 lineal feet of it ready to be put up. You can also see the cutting jig I made with the very expl...
We completed painting our bedroom, and are going to put up some crown molding, so the wine rack is waiting patiently on the workbench downstairs. I did manage to get myself a finer and smaller bandsaw blade—the one I had was used for hogging turning blanks out of damp logs, so was pretty aggressive and way too large to make the tight curves needed. Next is to use my template to flush trim them—they’re cut within about 1/16” of the line currently.
I am honored and blessed to be starting a traditional hand tool woodworking apprenticeship at the Steppingstone Museum just outside Havre de Grace, Maryland this weekend. The museum is a recreation of a late 19th century rural farm complete with a Joinery and an amazing collection of period tools all in working order. I have written more about my initial visit on my blog so check out the post here and stay tuned for much more news and content in the future as I will be spending my weekends ...
What is TALENT? What to do about it In today’s blog, I want to talk about talent. Everybody tells me, when they see my woodworking or the pictures I make by hand or with a camera, “Oh, you’re so TALENTED”. I’m flattered, of course, but in my mind I want to quibble with that. The word talent, as with so many words, has lost its real meaning. Most of the time it’s used to indicate appreciation of good work. When someone, take as an example a knitter, makes a beautiful sweater or hat, some ...

Currently ongoing construction is a jewelry box but big enought to be called as armoire. I have done it in 3 sectors: the foot, the lower drawers, and the top drawers. THE FOOTThe first difficulty is to decide whether I can make a short cabriole leg for the front. That was a long process due Narra that I have is medium hard. Additionally, I dont have bandsaw and I have to use jigsaw. I bought 4 inch jigsaw blade. It was not a perfect one but it was okay. The secret chamber will also...
