Stayed up way late last night to get these arms attached I wanted the glue to cure over night. I followed the instructions from Hal about how to ” fix ” the joint, I actually used a 80grit 9’’ stick on sanding disk and a piece of 120 from my drum sander, both worked great because they are stiff paper. Basically attach the arm where it should be, put sand paper between joint and pull, sounds easy looks easy but it did take me a few minutes to get the hang of it, m...
...I don’t know if there’s anything wrong with it, but I haven’t been getting many enquiries or followups. I’m wondering, is it because many haven’t found their way to it? OR it’s not interesting enough. I know one thing I need to add, is a video showing how my products are loaded and unloaded. Since you folks are woodoworkers, could you take a peek sometime and give me your critical assessment? And feel free to be ruthless! and, as has been ...

It was still August 2008 and since we had rented the backhoe to help moving the joists around, we also made use of it to place our outdoor wood furnace, that will heat both the workshop and house, into position on the pad: The backhoe was then used to lift plywood up on top of the joists: This was used as a floor for the upstairs loft area: It was time for aspenite to go on the outside of all the framing. It ran from about half of the blocks to the top of the ceiling/floor joists.Here...

I’m wondering if any Lumberjocks are headed to the Reading, PA woodworking show this weekend? I’ll be exhibiting and doing my handcut dovetail demo and selling my new DVD. If you’re headed to the show, let me and please stop by the booth an introduce yourself. It’s always great fun to meet fellow lumberjocks!
The decision to go RouboAfter my initial research, I like many woodworkers, fell in love with the roubo. My old benches were designed to be portable or were made from old desks. They never stood still. Planning, even chiselling would cause them to move about. There’s something rather solid about having 5”x5” legs. SizeOriginally, I thought I could do most of my work on a 3’x3’ bench. All my heavy chopping/sawing on a solid base and use work horses to support l...
So ya I made the head rest a while ago, and now i’m finally attaching it, holes are drilled mouth head rest kerf the top, draw radius, cut radius ( top and bottom ), shape bottom, attach in place add large round over to top. I’ve cleaned up the joints to near perfection! (-: at least by my standards maybe not Hals but i’ll do even better on my next chair which will be out of walnut I think maybe cherry but i’d rather do one out of walnut. The way the legs are ...
I have been doing some work over the past few days since my last up date. In this series it just shows me doing the glue up on the rear legs, and shows off the now shaped front legs. I made some 6 degree wedges for the sides and some square blocks for the rear as per Hals instructions, he even has a special way of making the blocks. It’s funny cause I’ve read his book so much, and watched the video over and over it feels like I know the guy but really I’ve never even s...
