I just got a call from my wife. “We’re overflowing with books in the office, can you make some bookshelves so that we can get them organized?” At this point, I’d like to be beaming with pride and start down the wonderful path of designing and planning out some fantastic bookshelves. Maybe they’ll be a very contemporary design with hidden support dowels embedded into the studs, or some nice quartersawn oak with through tenons and ebony pegs ‘a la’ G...

What’s happening in the shop for April 30, 2010. Spraying the finish on the Captain’s bed for Fluitt. Preping Petersen’s Qtr. Sawn murphy bed for finish. For missed video and building pictures see my Current Projects link at wwbeds.com or poggyskids.com. Watch us live:
The other day I was working outside and kept hearing a chainsaw. I kept looking in that direction. Before long a tree topper emerged above the roof tops. Limbing on the way up. Sawing off 4 foot sections on the way back down. He must have spent 5 or 6 hours going up and coming back down. I have done that n my younger days. Knees won’t take it any more, too many trips up ladders. I can’t say I really miss climbing with a belt and spurs. The neighbor taking down the tree will burn it...
Thru my first year learning woodworking, i read over and over about table saw sleds and all there benefits, and although i beleived every word of it, never took the time to build one…....untill last weekend and wow….what a difference, and as a newbie any change in quality no matter how minute is noticed as if under a microscope, i chose to make a low cost no flash crosscut sled and am happy i finally made it happen, thanks for listening
I can’t believe that some of you out there have the drive to write so much about your own personal experiances with woodworking. That inspires me to write more and share. I was supposed to use this blog as a way of sharing with my family and friends my woodworking experiances. Well, after 33 days since my last blog entry I realized that hey really don’t care about my woodworking experiances. Well, I shouldn’t say they don’t care; I should say they don’t care ...
One of the first things I really felt I needed up and running is my Dust Collector. This will need to be mobile so those little tiny wheels are not going to cut it when rolling over small debris. A top heavy out of balance machine needs fixing! (Why do they make them like they do…. I’ll never understand.) A good and simple fix: / Using the same ‘wheel’ brackets to keep it sturdy. If I ever wish to revert back to the old rollers… I can. / / N...
My attempt at teaching people to how to tune a miter saw. Would love any input. http://groverwoodworks.blogspot.com/2010/04/miter-saw-tuning.html
I thought it would be fun to do a little blog on the progression of putting my new shop together. Having moved from Ohio with plenty of space to a much smaller area in the Garage in Delaware. I first thought, about 4-5 months ago that it would be no problem putting my shop together. Well, here I am still at work. I’d like to just walk into the shop and build something fun. But I really can’t do that till every thing has a place… So the journey has begun. When we...
