This morning DW told me that she was heading to her mother’s around noon. So I had a deadline for my most recent client. Two sides attached. View of the inside. When I got to this point I though . . . “I wonder if those arrows will show when I’m finished.” This it the top made from a piece of 1×4 D4S pine. It was ripped, a groove cut along the inside edge for it to fit over the top and a 45 on the outside edge to make it match the base(s). It was at this ...
Got my Microdot Friday. Yay! I had found a good wood filler a few days ago and had filled in and sanded all of the holes. I covered both surfaces with ample adhesive. Waited until they were plenty dry. Just as before, I used dowels to keep the pieces apart as I wined them up. Removed the dowels one by one and pressed on the Formica. I did a preliminary rolling with the J-Roller then flush trimmed the edges of the laminate. Everything was going fine. I spent 10 minutes furiously...
One of the hardest parts of this dresser, for me, is the front feet. The first dresser I made, I glued a 3/4” backer piece to the foot so I had the thickness I needed. I was given a tip by Alan Breed that he had seen ogee feet mitered at less than 45 degrees so the maker would have enough material to carve. They did it that way to safe material. I decided to try that method. I mitered the blanks at 41 degrees. Also I haven’t put the gussets on the feet yet, it’s easier to c...
Hi All, I was encouraged by a number of members here to post the tool review I shot not long ago regarding the Mortise Pal jig. I must warn you, this video tool review is not for the faint at heart, it’s a full 27 minutes long. I can assure you that I didn’t gloss over this jig for the sake of doing a tool review. As always, give the player a minute to load. All the bestGord
A New Skill I have spent more time the last few days in front of the computer than in the shop. I am currently learning SketchUp to use for my design work and presentations. (I have owned the pro version for 2 years.) I have been watching the many online video tutorials for SketchUp, and I like the Missing Manual series of books, so I have the one for SketchUp. There is a lot to absorb and I dived right in. A Timely Offer for a Life Preserver Well, I may have dived right in and...
Lumberjock membership is staggering due to a well run site and members from around all the world sharing their projects, technical information and freindship.I have not been a LJ for very long, I love the site but I would like to see a list of Lj’s located in my neck of the woods instead of looking through the thousands of LJ profiles to get a clue. If you could do a search and get a list of LJ’s in your particular country, povence or state, I think some LJ’s would like to k...
Just starting to blog, I have been woodworking as a hobby for around 12 years now. I don’t get to enjoy my hobby as much as I would like to, my job keeps me busy 5 day/week, 12 hours/day at night. between that and chores around the house doesn’t leave a lot of time for woodworking. I will be posting some of my projects in the future, so check them out. Always looking for ideas.
Hi All, Here is a video I recently shot at the Lee Valley West Store in Toronto On. that features a pair of very talented woodworking instructors, Jennifer Hart and Betty Woo. Jennifer and Betty are not only accomplished woodworking instructors; they are passionate and dedicated to their craft and to sharing it with other women. Sit back and watch how the attendees at the seminar were encouraged and empowered through the careful guidance of both Jennifer and Betty. By the way, it&...
