NOTE—sorry photos are so big after spending all this time I didnt have time to go back and reduce…next blogs will try to reduce* I AM A BOAT BUILDER…if that is all you read then you will know that I entered into a new phase—I started and made my first cuts on my Weekender Sail boat! I did not get as far as I hoped today but I think that is going to be a familiar theme in this process…but I did cut wood and as they say in the Stevenson video—-I got over “first cut fever”…...
I haven’t gotten a lot of work done on my bench the last couple of weeks, because I’ve been futzing with the new tools I bought. I found a cheap little table saw, a nice bench sander, and a craptastic router and semi-decent router table on craigslist. So instead of working on the actual project, I’ve been trying to get the tools in decent working order so I can use them. Gave up on the router and bought a decent Craftsman with dual bases. I love that thing. Why have I...
How to get a straight edge on a rough cut board that has irregular sides without a jointer. I don’t have the space in my shop for all of the tools to make everyday task easy. My shop is in my garage and just not enough room for a jointer. For myself it works out most of the time because I plane and joint most of the boards for a project in my families shop up in north Carolina that I visit about once a month. But what do you do if you need a board right now? Well there are a few differe...
The pallet pouch was designed for covering pallet loads of seed, feed, fertilizer, but someone suggested it would make a good cover for those who keep a small wood pile outside their home or shop. Keep your firewood dry. When I had a wood fireplace, I used to use plastic tarps. This works much better. It’s on the website.
I’ve been remaking all of my sister’s raised panel Oak doors for her kitchen cabinets. There are about 25 of them and I’ve got them 2/3 completed over the past few months working on and off. Today I was working on three of them; long ones. Rails and stiles came out fine and I had to glue up two boards to make the center raised panels. While I was routing the edge of the raised panels two of them chipped out enough so that I can’t use them. This has happened once befor...
Sorry Guys, I had to redo this blog entry to get it on Lumberjocks. This was an interview of Glen by Chris Wakefield, “Into the Night on 1470 KHND Radio. The interview is in 2 parts.

I need a small band saw 9” would suffice and my wife’s family sent me a couple hundred dollars to buy onenow I have the delima of which one to choose.Cant afford a 14” saw and the Skil and Craftsman are my two choices locally.I’m only going to be cutting thin plywood and 1” thick boards with it. Help I don’t know what to do!!!!!
I had a chance, yesterday, to spend another delightful afternoon/evening with Mike (aka jockmike2). Each time I visit, it seems my confidence level goes up a notch and I spend more time doing some actual turning. So there was much progress with the bowl I was working on and it would seem that it is not destined to spend the rest of its days as a permanent addition to Mike’s chuck. The piece we worked on is a chunk of maple that Mike was kind enough to donate to the teaching process. ...
Now I know you are wondering how all of this time I am spending in the attic relates to woodworking. There is a tie in here, trust me… Even though the daytime highs have been in the mid to upper 70s lately, the overnight lows are, well downright cold into the mid 40s. Once the sun starts going down the attic isn’t a horrible place to work, aside from all the fiberglass dust that is… I took up a span of OSB to spread between the rafters to give me a more acceptable plat...
