Last night I was reading some Sherlock Holmes after DW and I watched a movie and something struck me. No it wasn’t DW wanting me to turn out the light . . . it was the fact that the latch for the door was an in-swing and the hinges were an out-swing. Doh !! I definitely needed Sherlock and Dr Watson to help me figure this one out. After work this evening I started by attaching a couple of screws to test fit the door. The next thee pics you may remember from my last installmen...
What a blast!Last Friday, Woodcraft Magazine Editor-in-Chief Jim Harrold spent the day visiting my workshop to supervise a photo shoot of the shop for an upcoming issue. With him was Chicago-area photographer Mike Crews, his assistant John, and numerous road boxes filled with some pretty slick photography gear. A Dust-free Dust Collection System The process actually began the day before the shoot. Thursday afternoon, Jim stopped by, followed shortly by Mike. After introductions, they su...

Open up your creative mind and let it flow! The easiest design for a bandsaw box is one that allows for the fewest cuts. If you could make one continuous cut around the box, that would be great, but do what your design calls for. If you want square corners, you may need to use another tool like a miter saw to trim the ends of the block. For this example, I chose a heart shaped design. Draw the outline of the box on the front of the block.
For the first part of the project, you must ask yourself, “What size is the box going to be?” If you aren’t sure, just take a couple 2×4’s and glue them together, or get a chunk of a cedar 4×4, they work good, and smell nice when they are cut up. You can get as elaborate as you want later on, but for starters keep things simple to manage. The project must be made from a solid piece of wood or several pieces glued together to become solid. By laminating ...
We’ve been watching the Bear for over a week now, & the little birds haven’t shown up. I think the bear didn’t meet the proper specifications, or the bird building code. I also believe the Robins, & Squirrels may have scared them away. It’s sitting too much out in the open, kind of low to the ground. I’ve heard of birds starting a nest, & leaving it for a different location.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ You ca...
My little shop got a workout this weekend when gal pals Kathy, Cathy and Tracy spent Saturday building new cabinet doors. “The Angels,” as they’re known to workout pals, picked up irons of the domestic variety to apply preglued birch edgebanding to simple plywood doors for a client of Kathy’s. I think Charlie would have approved. Sabrina, Jill and Kelly [originally posted at http://tenonandspline.com/blog/archives/256]

So it was the 3rd birthday of my daughter today, actually it past a few minutes now… The bed was done a while ago, and she has been sleeping there, but I just thought it would be a good idea to take some shots on her birthday sleeping there. From woodworking There has been no problem with the bed, and the cracking just stopped after I put this bed in the bedroom. There is nothing special about this photo, but for me, this is one of the biggest reason to be here in the world.
