Somewhere on here I’d started a blog about our gazebo. I’ll have to go back and find the other blog entries. We started out with a 10×10 tent gazebo purchased from Rona, and after the wind destroyed the frame, it became a wooden framed gazebo with the tarps for walls and roof. The weather has been rough on the tarps and we have had to start replacing the tarps with wood. Other than the 2×4’s, we have used scrap pieces of everything and anything we could find ...

I am wondering if anyone has found a wood filler for a crack in a salad bowl that would be food friendly?Thank you.
Every project starts with a controversy; this one is no different. However, being that this has been in queue for awhile, I have a few designs to work with, the time table is better understood, and the I’m doing modeling in SketchUp versus graph paper. Thinking about this more, perhaps the time table isn’t as well understood. Physically, this is the largest project I’ve done. The project sponsor, my wife, might be looking at the time required for the armoire as a referen...
Exciting Progress.. I am making some great progress on my closet project. I currently have the copper rods in a machine shop where the parts are being fabricated. The clients and I had talked about changing the lights to better illuminate the fine work that I have produced. While the metal work is being done I decided to go ahead and install the new lights. WOW! Man-OH-Man! Does it ever look fantastic! Here is the closet with the old lights: Here is the closet with the n...
I received a call from XXXXXX XXXX tonight. She is Mark’s wife. I left a message on Mark’s cell phone and their home phone. She didn’t have his cell charger and the phone was dead. She was out of town with her family after the funeral and for Christmas. When she returned home she plugged in Mark’s phone and got my message on the home phone. They have a son XXXXXXX who is XX years old. She said that she had gone through Mark’s email but she didn’t have hi...
All the winter projects are complete and I have finally managed to clean the shop up just in time for the New Year to start. Now have a request to build a shuffleboard table and have no clue where to start. Any suggestions as to where to get plans? I have been to a few bars to look at shuffleboard tables and have come away with some great ideas. Any help would be appreciated.
A new year is almost upon us and I’m going to tell you folks about my tool purchase plans for this year and see if I can get some good advice. Also, as a chance to pat myself on the back, today is my one year anniversary of quitting smoking! If I would have saved what I spent for cigarettes if I would have smoked, I would have $3650 to purchase a woodshop with. Then it’d be all Festool and Gold! The first task I had was deciding what major tools I would want. I’ve manage...
I took some Christmas money (thank you in-laws!) and order a Delta 22-580 bench-top planer. I’m very excited. This will be, by far, my most expensive woodworking tool so far. It should be here Wed… now I just need some rough cut stock! Here is a pic so I can stare at it and day dream until it arrives:
