My kitchen remodel is underway! First, I built these pantry cabinets so that we have some storage as the remodel progresses. The side cabinets are 12” deep so that everything on the shelves can be easily found. The lower center section will house a small refridgerator capped with a counter to create a drink bar area. This will allow people to get drinks and condiments for dinner without intruding on the kitchen work area during meal prep. The doors are beech as the rest of the ...
Just got back from the lumber yard. This is gonna be a quick post, and a test run to see if I can figure out how to add photos to the blog body. Anyhow, took the 2 year old with me (that was a challenge) and we picked out some S4S birch 1×3’s, 1×4’s, and 1×6’s for the framework. Next trip will be for some maple to fill in the headboard panels and make the slats. Here are a couple pix of the birch….garage is kinda dark, and if I raise the door the k...
So, this is my current project in progress. I am framing a storage shed to put the garden and yard tools, so I can get a little more space in the garage for the workshop. Real glad to be past the digging out for the footer blocks, and the squaring of the footers. Found that my stabila torpedo level with a right angle prism was a great help in lining up to the house and also squaring the block positions. I had upgraded my old craftsman direct drive noisy compressor to a 200psi dewalt bel...
These are some things that my Dad has made for us kids. As I’ve said before I have learned ALOT of what I know from him. He and my Grand-Pa have alot to do with me loving woodworking.

I had many a summers spent in my Grand-Pa’s Shop in Iowa. Once we moved to Chicago my dad feel away from woodworking. Not having hi...
Well this post has been a while in coming…We moved into the new townhouse back in May, I spent about a month painting (old place and the new), swapping out all the light fixtures, switches, plugs, taps, doors and even the kitchen cabinet doors, so the shop just had to wait. Here’s the space before we moved in.Walking in the door Looking to the right All the way in, by the window, looking at the exit. Then the move happened…by the time the movers got to moving my ...
A friend came by the shop looked around, pointed to something and said “That’s a great Idea” I am very scared of heights and although I have a 6’ set ladder I just can’t go beyond the second step, in any case there would be nobody there to hold the ladder. Last year I was trying to put together a vacuum system with the tubes 8’ high on the wall. I also wanted to run an air hose from one side of the shop to the other, again about 8’ high along a...
