Here is a follow up from earlier in the week. I started milling some of the logs from that blog. I currently have others I am getting backed up on (too many oaks and honeylocust) but am low on cherry so I decided to mill some of it. Turned out very nice, small but nice.!!One 12 foot log milled and ready to be moved to the drying stacks I really got a great stack of almost perfect cherry boards. I am pleased. (400 bft ? and did not mill them all yet) The walnut like I said was a little s...

Well had a interesting time in the mountains. We had a bear that kept coming around, until the Game and fish finally came and took care of him after he broke into a couple of other cabins in the area. After that it was a relaxing time spent catching fish and enjoing the cool mountains Anyway, back to the serving tray. I decided not to add any more keys for fear of messing up a good thing. The silver wire inlay proved to be a little more difficult than I anticipated but for the first ti...
I was wading through my old woodworking bookmarks, and stumbled across this great guide to making a marking knife. It looked like a fairly easy project, and cheap! Looks like I can take that Japanese marking knife off my wish list. So here we go: The blade is taken from a jigsaw blade, and it didn’t take too long to file off the teeth: For the handle, I took a 6” section of kempas scrap that I had lying around. Incidentally, you can see on the bench that I filed the ...
First off here’s a better picture of the radius jig for the styles and panel parts. It shows how I set it up with both the inside and the outside cradles attached to the tray and the router base’s. And if you look close you can see the 1/2 inch foam pad that I use to sand the styles with. Just a reminder you can click on the picture to see the whole thing. Ok, lets get started on the rails for the doors and the the face frame for the cabinet case. I just make a 1/2” thic...
Four Restorations, Two Remodels, Two Staircases, and One more Deck. The first 7 months of my move from computer programmer into professional woodworker. All this and I found time to write a new web application for woodworkers too. Though work has been decent in this economic climate, I can’t say there hasn’t been down time but I made the effort to put it to good use and develop Pins & Tails. Now originally it was supposed to be for me to track and journal my work to reference ...
I have been using a vintage Stanley scrub for a while to get my lumber down to the right thickness. However, I have found the space between the handle and the iron on this plane to be a little cramped. After reading Woodworking Magazine’s blog about fore (jack planes), I thought I would see if I could pick up a good cheap #5 and put good camber on its blade.. Here is the Stanley jack plane I bought off eBay for about $20.. From the looks of the low knob, frog and three patent d...
So the big news of the day is that the results are out! I really didn’t expect to win, or even to come close, with my step stool. I did have a secret desire that I would get a vote. If I got just one vote, I would have been ecstatic. Instead, I actually got 10 votes, including one vote for 1st place. Thank you! No, don’t worry, fellow Jocks, I don’t have any delusions of grandeur. I can see the entries below mine just as well as you can, and that the originality and/or...
