My apologies to all. I have personally removed my post. It was about woodworkers and gas. Not meant to be political. It was meant to help our country and the world. As many of you know, I have been away from the site for about 6 weeks because of health. I guess I should have read up on the new rules. Just in the last week or so, I have begun coming back online to the site. My next move will be the Oreilly Factor. I’d say that I will get a response there.This may break the rules also bu...
Now that my table is done, what do I do now? I’m kinda bored… time to get SWMBO to make a list ;)
This is to all who have read and especially those of you that responded to the previous blog I wrote showing your concerns for my health. But, most of all, it is for those who have been praying for me. May God bless you and your family’s as much as he has blessed me, throughout my life and least of all, Because of you, my friends?! (Now!) I am a diabetic and have been disabled for seven years with severe nerve damage to my feet and legs. About six months ago, my sugar went out of control, r...
Here is a update of mom’s Shaker Style Dresser with pic, I got the top, sides and bottom runner glue up. I use pocket screws with the bottom runner so it will have added strength. Now I have a basic case to work from now. Now I have to build the rest of the runners and add a plywood back. But I aint sure what size plywood to use for the back.
May 14, 2008 ~ Happy Birthday Samantha This is one of my favorite days of the year; the day my grandaughter Samantha was born. It seems like yesterday but it was really 10 years ago. Of course the other favorite day is Emily’s B-day and she is 3. So I digress but thought today would be a good time to finally put together this sequence on these Cherry End Tables. Our Daughter wanted me to make her two end tables out of Cherry and liked the design of two that I made from oak...
After reading the post by RJ 'AWLfreeplans is soon to be ALLgone' I decided to take on the challenge of resurrecting and building on the foundation RJ set. In a few short days I should have all of RJ's plans back up on the site, and from there, will continue adding to the collection. In time I hope to be able to have AwlFreePlans.com serve as a repository for plan submissions from the woodworking community en masse. So please continue to check out the site and it’s progress as it b...
I always thought that people who used hand cranked bit braces where a little crazy. Reading about the one of the benchs in Woodworking Magazine they use a brace to drill holes. Anyways on my way to pickup the lumber I”m going to use for my bench I stop as this little Antique/misc junk shop that I always meant to check out and I found a 10” Stanley brace, model 945 for 3 bucks. Its in great shape. A little surface rust but all the parts that move are smooth and the wood whil...
I started working on my workbench and was able to spend some time on it last week while my wife was in Maine. It is a combination of ideas I gained while studying others, and I am sort of making it up as I go along. I used Douglas Fir as it was easy to find, and I was able to purchase some fairly clean pieces at the Home Depot. It was quite wet when I got it, and it has been drying for several weeks now. I milled it to almost final dimension and now it is drying some more, and what I thin...
I love this web site….I have a question.I as a hobbiest love woodworking among other hobbies. Restoring antique vehicles is also one of my passions.I ask Martin if maybe in the future he would make a site for restorers of auto’s. He seemed to think it would also be a great site.I just wanted to know how many others would like a site like that?Thanks Martin, I hope it becomes a reality.Jim
Where Dreams Are Made ....never having a thought to lay down and rest, i was culled from the era’s of past, into the days of what might be called future quest, and so from this forum i soon was caught out as blest….—by flp How one goes about ending a hard days work, is just as important as how one starts a day of hard work! I all-ways give thanks in the mornings for the opportunity to work….and, then when my day is done, I give thanks for the day. And did I al...
