As part of the Introduction to Woodworking 101 continued I introduced Jon to the part of furniture construction that most woodworkers truly enjoy- sanding and glue-ups! This is a picture that was taken about a month ago of him sanding the right side of the vanity. With this glue-up, using biscuits, the face frame is being attached to the carcass. This was a challenging glue-up given the number of biscuits involved and the size of the cabinet. It was helpful to have two of us working...
Here’s the first chair. I plan on building another one, plus two side tables, a bench and coffee table for the deck off my guest apartment. I purchased the plans on line, but I’ve always had trouble following rules, so the final product somewhat different than what the plans called for. I used scrap 2×6 treated pine left over from building the apartment and deck, instead of cedar or red wood the plans called for, simply because it was scrap laying around.
It was my birthday yesterday, but I was not home, I was in Ise City.Yes, there was a concert there and I stayed there a night. Ise is just like Mecca of Shinto in Japan, there are 2 big shrines there so I went to both of them before the rehearsal and before the concert.I thought some of you might like these photos so I am uploading some. First I went to Geku, it was only 15 minutes walk from the hotel I stayed, so I went there after breakfast before I left there for the concert. From For...
So the mantle clock project is underway, the walnut and oak strips are cut, and the stripe section is glued up and drying in the clamps… It is now too late to run power tools, so the cross section will need to wait until tomorrow. I had a $10.00 off any purchase of $20.00 or more at Woodcraft coupon, so I got my walnut there. I really only needed / wanted 2 board feet anyway, just enough to finish up this project, and maybe do another one for MY desk after Christmas is over…...
Well the platen arrived Wednesday and the pad for it arrived Friday so I was able to put ‘er together and she’s good to go. Waiting for the new on/off switch yet, that will arrive Tuesday but if I need to, I can use it. Had it running today to adjust the belt tracking, that was fairly easy. Put a 120 grit belt on for starters so we’ll see and I’ll go from there. I was going to post a before and after of the belt’s cast iron table to show the results of using T...
Hey Everyone! The left side of my kitchen is really beginning to look like a kitchen.

really wondering if anyone has a review or opinion on these types of tabelsaws?
Hi, I am looking for simple cnc software to create irregular shapes. It must be compatible with Fanuc controller or standard G-code output. I would prefer that the system be inexpensive or shareware. It would be great if offered input/output in other formats to read in and out of this system to other systems or to access data directly. It doesn’t have to have nesting. I have previous experience with programming and G-code so it doesn’t have to be aimed at beginners but if ...
I was at my local Woodcraft store today watching various demos of Festool projects. I am amazed at the reliability and feel of the tools. Their performance seems unmatched… the only problem is having to take out a mortgage to pay for them. Since I am in the process of putting heat into my garage workshop, I can not afford these tools… yet! The heat is important since the first snow/freeze of the season here in Michigan hit this week, at 14 degrees F… reminding us that winter...
