When I saw this in the Klockit catalog I just wanted to make it. I sat down and started trying to convert the picture into a working drawing but before I got to cutting, they made the plans available (instead of the kit). My wife knows I am making this for her sister but she doesn’t know that I am making a 2nd one for her! So far the only real challenge was making the tapered sides that taper from 1” thick to 3/4” thick. I used the bandsaw to cut off most of that tap...
When my father gave me his woodshop there were several of these candle boxes that he had started for my mother. This year I decided to finish one of them for my mom for Christmas. Dad had made the box and drawers. The drawer fronts and lid were all I need to finish. For the lid, I am planning no resawing a solid wood panel to 3/8 inch. To help it keep from bowing, I will install some braces (screws only – no glue) to the underside of the lid. At least that is the plan as of today.!
So today I had some free time, I add it some finish to the entire machine, since this is not any kind of furniture at all I decided to to go the hard way, I basically applied some spray paint, the maple parts had some wipe on poly. I also got the time to add the missing angle gage and the clamp block. All I need now is to get some different sandpaper grits and this baby should be ready to be put to the test. I will also like to ask a question. What grits of sandpaper should I get? I ...
Journal entry 11/9/2009 Working with MadroneBowl turned by David Gould from NY Proper handling and stabilizing of Madrone Madrone in a very self-destructive wood. I will crack and twist on you in a matter of hours even minutes sometimes. But don’t let that scare you. It is a beautiful wood to turn on a lathe or what ever the application. What you ask of the supplier: First of all make sure that you request sealing of all sides of the burl and not a thin coat. It has to be thic...
In this episode I stain all the parts for the book case and then Istart on the assembly. The assembly took a lot longer then I thought soI only used some of that footage.

I recently received a Bosch 1617EVSPK for my birthday. The first project for any new router owner is the router table. The design of my table is influenced heavily by the fence system I will be using. I just picked up the “17 Incra LS Super System. In order to allow for the full 17” range of the system while mounting the carriage fully on the table, I am making the top with the dimensions 27×43. The top is made from 2 sheets of 3/4” MDF glued together with Ti...
Phantom of My Woodworking Heart ….out of the city i walked one day into a forest of wood,never looking back at those objects that once held me,saving my soul from the plight of the lost and un-redeemed,i came to re-pair my-self from the time zone of asphalt jungles…. ….those ills i took on then back there in that forest of steel,have now cursed me again with a reminder of a jaded past,but I am far better now by the under-standing i gained from wood, i was made for wood and in ...

Good progress today, wish I’d gotten things done a bit quicker but oh well. Got the other cabinet assembled, and started working on the doors – well at least one door. Like I said earlier I only have enough wood milled to do the one, so I got started with that. I ran the boards through my (makeshift) router table, creating a 3/4” deep groove the full length, and then cut the rails and stiles to length. I made a jig to route the tenons for the rails a few weeks ago, and I...
