Okay, I have talked about this for a while, and I have been saveing some money for it, but I just now started the renevation of my home shop. I am going to be downgradeing in lengh but square feet wise, it is the same. the only thing that conserns me is infeed and outfeed length for my tablesaw. I can only cut about a 4 foot board with it, but anything larger I guess I can have run out the door. Me and my dad are doing all the work ourselves. We already moved everything over to the final plac...

I spent some more time on the guitar project. This time adding the bracing to the back plate. Doing this glue-up required some interesting clamping operations which I describe in the post. Take a look and let me know what you think. Thanks for reading!
RusticallyFlared-AsianInspiration—-a study in the cross cultural texture of ‘wood art’. ....so how proud are you of your underside? I still remember the time I was in a well known and famous gallery owner’s showroom over in the upstate region of … ...., looking at some of the furniture on display. Well next thing I know as I’m down on my hands and knees is a loud display of noise as this person let me know that I was on the verge of being aske...
Hey Jocks, I received quite a few emails during this leg of the trade, unfortunately it took a bit longer than anticipated for the box to make it to Relic in Nova Scotia, but it is there now and we are moving right along. Here’s the latest map… After Relic makes his trades the box is off to Rikkor in Minnesota and then wayyy over on the Left Coast to Nils in CA – then it’s back ‘home’ to Georgia. Looks like it will probably head off again sinc...
Over the past month I found very little contiguous time to make progress on the shop setup. Consequently I never felt like I had made significant enough progress in any given week to warrant a new post. While I’m still quite some distance from the finish line, I finally feel like I can actually say, once again, “I have a shop!”Dust Collection ControlsI installed a half-dozen doorbell buttons around the shop, under bench tops near power tools, on the wall by the bandsaw and u...
This weekend I had time to work on the Wagon Vise. Overall it came out really nice. I also attached the top to the base, so it’s all one piece now. I’m using a standard veneer press screw for the Wagon Vise, nothing special and it’s cheap. The first step was to bore a hole for the thread bracket, that the screw runs through. I have to tell you boring through end-grain is a bit of a pain. I should have bored the hole using my drill press, before I glued the piece in place. Next ...

Plantation shutters are very popular down under at the moment, at least on the east coast of Australia.My wife and I recently renovated the bathroom, yes girls she did help with the wall cladding, plastering and tiling. We had a window that looked a bit out of place, a bit ordinary, and we say some plantation shutters in an apartment when we were on holidays in Queensland.You know what woodies are like, I can make them I said. Well that is what happened.After scouting around nobody seemed to ...
When I picked up the old upright piano from a lady up in Deadwood some months back I promised her I’d make something out of the old thing for her. Sheesh….months of disassembling an old piano whose soundboard is cracked…the tuning pegs can’t hold a tune….most folks would toss the old piano out at the dump. Not BarryW….I have to disassemble this piano piece by piece. Some time ago I blogged about using the bottom half of the piano for a workbench support....
