As most of you know, I finished the first buffalo box so what I am showing now is the intarsia of the second buffalo box. I worked out all of the pattern bugs on the first one so this one went a little faster. This first photo shows how I transfer the shape of the buffalo from the pattern to the sticky back label paper using carbon paper.The buffalo bodies are cut from 3/8” walnut,the heads are 3/8” peruvian walnut and the baby buffalo is 3/8”butternut.. The next photo s...
Remember me? I’m the guy who has never run more than about a mile, and just signed up for his first marathon. That’s just a metaphor, but … I’ve knocked out a handful of pretty easy ww projects, and am now working on an M&T set of Shaker Night Stands … loaded with things I’ve never done before. So … today brought my first-ever glue-up for Night Stand #1’s top: and Every hobby/pastime has a million questions for which the...
I’ve started a new project over the last couple of weeks. It’s two solid walnut beds (Full Size) for each of my kids.I’m making two different styles, heavily influenced by Thomas Moser’s New Century China bed and American Bungalow beds. I’ve worked on other beds in the past including a Pencil Post bed I made as a wedding gift to my wife about 10 years ago. This was after working on some projects for Jeff Miller of J. Miller Handcrafted Furniture. He published ...

As a new member here, I figured that I should share the project I am working on. I am by no means a luthier, or a highly skilled woodworker (yet). This is something that I have wanted to do for a long time. It started by felling an ash tree a few years ago and getting it milled into boards. Here I am in my large workshop planing the boards to thickness. Note the fancy chip/dust collector. Did my first bookmatch ever! Made a core from maple. glueing the back to the ...
1) A soft glue roller really works well.All I can say is I am impressed. This seemingly cheap roller spreads glue like paint. Just squirt glue out as normal and roll, up/down and left/right. The result is smooth and consistent throughout. Clean up is with soap and water. 2) A veneer saw is great but needs a tune up. I tried both cutting with a knife and a veneer saw. For now, the saw wins. I guess that’s why they still sell them every place veneer is sold. But mine needed a t...
I saw Blankman’s post on his mitre saw dust hood and thought I’d share my idea for a mitre saw station. This one hangs on the wall by a french cleat. I built it in three sections: left and right fence sections and the center saw section. The saw is the DeWalt 12” dual bevel model (not a slider.) I gave a lot of thought to whether the fence should be built on a platform or on the flat of the table. As you can see I chose the platform and I’m glad I did. I end ...
