Updated my “to do list page – over at my original (and oft-neglected) blog, and I’m happy to see the balance shift from “to do”, and “want to do”, to done. I’ve also added a gallery page, thanks to the new project card widget feature (Thanks Martin! Great Feature!). Not an exhaustive gallery of all of my projects – as some of the house and shop projects are only blogged about here (and there), but it is a nice visual record of what I...
When I learned about the bookcase design challenge I immediately wanted to design this bookshelf. I came up with the original idea when I took a furniture design class at BYU from Kip Christensen. I decided then to fully design and build a different project which I will post later on my blog. I draw inspiration for this project from, well… trees. What better inspiration is there to a woodworker? As I designed this project ideas kept flowing and the end product just kept getting bette...
Geez, I thought I was done with shopping/research :) Seems that once you have your background and lighting down pat the next step is better glass. Keep in mind when I originally purchased my camera I didn’t consider it might be necessary to upgrade the lens. I did understand I may need a different lens for landscape shots for instance. Through this process I’ve come across various sites that show images from one end to the other of the range of a particular lens. I’...
A person can spend a lot of time on a carving, but after the final cut with your chisel, you don’t really know what all of the chiseling you’ve done really looks like. You have to choose a finish that will enhance your carving. On some carvings I use a stain, others, just a clear finish, it all depends on the theme, or type of wood you’re using. I’ve chosen some images of my mining scene to show you the difference of before, & after. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~...
In this video tutorial we’re going to insert the project card widget into the sample blog entry to make it look cool and stylish easily… More screencasts are in production and I’m planning to them all to our Help section soon. Stay tuned.

I’m looking for plans for a workbench that I can set my 10” table saw in and a router table all incorporated into the table top. Please Help!
I know, it’s a funny subject title but read on, we all have a little something to relate to this.Have you ever been driving down the road or in the neighborhood and seen an old chair or table laying out to be picked up by the trash service or someone has just cut down a tree and the logs are laying at the curb to be pick up? Or how about the factory down the street that has a dumpster full of scrap lumber or pallets?Or the friend that calls you and says he just cut down a tree in his ...
Woodworking magazines are full of jigs for routers, tablesaws and drill presses. If I built all the one-purpose jigs I’ve seen in these magazines, I wouldn’t have any room in my small shop to turn around let alone do woodworking. One thing I’ve noticed about woodworking magazines is that they take essentially the same jig and write ten articles about it, changing it cosmetically each time. For example, how many table saw sleds have you seen in the past year? They all do t...
Hey Everybody, I just figured that i would do an update on the design. this is a really make shift video as i just threw it together tonight. it goes through all the major design aspects though of the bottom of the armoire. Well i hope that everyone likes it. So i hope everyone liked it. As i said if you have any comments or suggestions just leaves a message. the drawer supports are probably overkill but i want this to stand the test of time. As i also said i will try to finish ...
