I thought I would give you all a sneak peek of a new slightly off kilter design.. after several inspirational XXXX ’s I came up with this… this is the slanted weave…
Sorry about this post. It is a non woodworking related topic. Please remove it if I am breaking any rules. I have to say that I’m not one for getting out and about. I do get away on a hike from time to time, but not as often as I should I suppose. I make it a point to get into the garage shop as often as possible. If I wasn’t able to I would never advance my skills, and would just be a cabinet maker building boxes. There isn’t much pleasure in that, unless it’s...
Hello, I finished my hand planing jig. It works really well and I like it. The last two nights have been such fun. For the last few weeks I have been focusing on practicing, so it was nice to build something. This is not to say that I don’t intend to get back to the dovetail practicing, as I am still a long way from mastering it. But I needed a better way to hold wood for hand planing and this jig will serve me well for a long time. http://bit.ly/cRJCsP Brian

Well I spent two evenings making a shelf in 1/87th scale. It is 20 millimeters tall which is 5 ½ feet in HO scale. It is 5 ¼ mm deep at the bottom and 4 mm deep at the top and it is 8 ¾ mm wide. I first ripped a 5 ½ mm wide piece of 1/32nd thick basswood on my modified Scroll Saw (see the first blog entry in this series) for the sides and shelves. I then used an X-Acto knife and a metal hobby ruler to cut an 8 ¾ mm wide strip for the back. I joined it together with the Gorilla Super Gl...
I start apply the finish to repice box today, I know you guys notice the patch to the top. I hope it dont look to bad.
Time to finish off this cupboard blog. Here is the cupboard with a few coats of wipe-on poly on it: Here is the top joint, a dado-rabbet. It’s kind of rough looking, but will be covered with the piano hinge so I wasn’t as fussy as I normally would be. This shows the back rabbet that will hold the piece of 1/4” plywood. I put the poly on the piece before I put the back on. That way I could poly the big flat piece of plywood without shelf interference, as well a...
Oooops. I erased the pictures for my last Dust Blog not realizing they have to be there to support the blog. I noticed that there is a hole in the top of the blade guard. Sawdust flies out of that hole. Solution! A small 1” by 2” magnet to seal the hole. Simple but effective.
Bought some washers when I was in Milwaukee last weekend. Next they will be packaged in kid proof bottles.
