Today I thought it would be a good idea to show you guys how I cut my dovetails. I don’t have all the proper tools for the job or the best of the tools that I do own. So far I have been able to get by with what is seen here. I had some scrap oak laying around in the shop so I decided to use some of it for practice. I start by laying out the “tails” first. First step is to find the center of the board and divide it how ever you see fit. I find the center of the board by j...
The finish line is in sight, but there’s still a few details to cross off the list.

It’s been a great week for getting caught up on spindle production. The weather in North Seattle is gray and wet. That means that shop time won’t be that pleasant. That’s OK. I have a handful of orders to sand, polish, and finish. I’m looking for a good source for Birdseye Maple and Tulipwood. Later today, I’m meeting up with a new client and we’re going to spin some yarn together.
Some of the most talented people in the world work in complete anonymity. If they are lucky after death somebody discovers their work and it becomes something of value. A professional should receive re numeration for their work and money too! Ha! How do you make the necessary connections with a qualified customer? What Is Your Brand? For years I was a general furniture maker. I built a large number of beds, tables and cupboards. I was a furniture maker with very little identity in a tow...
