I was able to finish sanding, dry fitting, then gluing up the pieces for the cross last night, it is curing in clamps and cauls since about 8:00 P.M. last night. Tonight, assuming it’s not too cold to work in the shop it gets the chamfers routed in. Then we mark the location for the tags, and hopefully get the engraved plaque from the engravers in to install. I also located a bright brass floral holder that I would like to mount up… I am hopeful this weekend will be dry enough,...
Another basic coaster pattern. I use the straight lines to practice my “pull” cuts. The star bursts are done with a stab knife.
I have started to plan my first rocking chair. It is going to be in the idea of my present chair where the majority of it is going to be made of as many pieces as I can fit. Here is the twist. Since becoming a member of Lumber Jocks I have received some of the most wonderful comments, These comments coming from such talented people has inspired an Idea that I think we could all get into. The Big Idea. We can mail scrap pieces to each other to be incorporated into a project. The main th...
What’s happening in the shop for February 23, 2010. Betz bed is build and ready for the finish. I will build Ridenhour’s murphy bed and bookcase today.

, Ok. This is my first try posting photos. I hope it will go through. Anyways, this is my ongoing project right now. And this is the reason why I got into the woodworking. I did some other project before this like my combo saw/router table and a small jewelry cabinet which I will post later. This raised panel wainscoting was long overdue. My BOSS keep on asking me when I’m gonna start the wainscoting in the living room. LOL. I told her that I need some tools and knowledge before startin...
My last post showed my upgrade shop equipment…the main being a Hitachi C10FL table saw…......which I really have become attached to…......however…....as with most new saws…the insert is one step above a cow patty…...as is the case with this saw. Flimsy sheet metal with about 1/4” gap on one side and 5/8” on the otherHave already managed to wedge a piece between the blade and table which then shot across the room faster than an SST. Pat...

So I got the windows done in the basement and rewarded myself by installing my new fence upgrade. I got the 36” Redline fence from Dave and got it installed. A bit of tweaking and tinkering and I have a nice new fence. It’s very nice to be able to roll it up to a setting on the ruler and make cuts without all the measuring and waiting for the saw to spin up and down. I had set it up temporarily while I got used to it to finish the windows, but the first project I got done w...
There was a comment on the table on top of my bench. A buddy of mine saw it on the street for trash pickup in his neighborhood. It had been painted, someone attemted to strip it, got partway finnish and threw it out. Rich brought it to me, it had no drawers but i figured i could deal with it. I carefully stripped the remainder of the paint, gods but it took a while.It looked old so i went to the library to research it found out it’s a french provincail walnut bureau plat 200 some odd y...
Just a pattern I’ve been playing with. Pretty basic approach to a rosette. The outer dimension is 3 1/2” square. The pattern starts with approximately a 10mm border. Enjoy.
