This is the second in a series of four videos that I took of the Woodcraft Gallery at the Art Centre in Christchurch, NZ
I’m now working on a couple of desks for a Medical clinic. I’ve been working on this project for about 13 days now. I built this unit out of oak plywood and red oak lumber. I started this project by constructing the the upper portions first. I had to wait to receive my hardware before building the base cabinets. This set of desks is custom for the client, the first desk station on the left is 50” wide than there is (3) 40” wide stations one of the stations is going to ...
Thereafter the box side joined together, the challenge was over. The rest joint will come in… THE TRAYSIn order to avoid monotony of color, MOLAVE (Philippine Hardwood with yellow finish) was choosen as the sides and black KAMAGONG was the bottom plate. Dovetail cutting was easy on Molave. Though it is hard, the saw cuts with slippery surface. The Molave contains its own oil. The hard part will be the gluing. I was so careful to smear the glue because it reacts to the oil of th...

Hello LJ’s, What a day! I got a present from a LJ reader of my blog. I didn’t know it was coming, he just sent it. The best part is that he just labeled the box Brian Meeks, Martelle, Iowa. No address or p.o. box, but since I live in a town of 280, where everyone knows everyone else, that was plenty. It made me and the post master chuckle. I received 3 hand planes and a spokeshave, in great condition. So tonight’s blog is about my new hand planes that have joined my...

THE COMMISSION Last week, a gentlemen called me about a project he had in mind for his daughter. He brought over a custom, stained-glass panel that he wanted to use for a wall-mounted, spice cabinet door panel. The client is no stranger to woodworking but doesn’t have time and all his tools on hand or he would have done it himself. I am thankful that he trusted me to create his vision of a lovely gift though. We also had a good time talking about tools and such and I was pretty ha...
The time has come the Walrus said… to speak of many things.. of sailing ships and sealing wax and cabbages and Kings, of why the sea is boiling hot and whether pigs have wings… Now is the time for me to venture back into the workshop and whip up some new designs that have been flopping around in my head ever since I left for New Zealand.. I have had my holiday … spent time with my daughter and her family… met some wonderful folks… seen some magnificent sce...
Several days ago, I was asked to rebuild a few storm door inserts destroyed by some overzealous dogs. Dogs – 1 || Door Insert – 0 I hesitated a bit because it seemed liked a boring production item, but I am not one to usually turn down a woodworking project. No better softwood So I got some high-grade Douglass Fir and went to work replicating the screened versions. The mangled model was made with bridal joints in each corner and sep...
It all started when I posted Janna’s box. LJ Rand was captivated of its simplicity and being an elegant design. I was not expecting that in my private message, Rand and I have same common thing: Janna received the box as a graduation gift and Rand needed one for Megan, step grand daughter. That’s the only one I know. But just this morning 6/21/10, a surprise condition of Megan came up from Rand’s comment that Megan will undergo brain surgery and she was happy about the ...
