Howdy fellow sawdust makers, I just completed my new video, “Building a Maloof Inspired Low-back Chair”, and thought you might enjoy seeing the introduction sequence (filmed just outside my workshop). Enjoy! Video>
Picked up some Yellowheart pen blanks on ebay recently. 100 5/8” x 5/8” x 6” pieces for total cost of $30 with $13.55 shipping total of $43.55 works out to $0.46 a blank. Not to bad I think. Going to be a-lot of slim line pens with those or some pieces to cut for segmenting.

With the behemoth out of the corner, the bulk of the demolition was done. I still had to take down the cabinets, but I decided to go through the junk in the garage first to clear out some space. I should have done this a week or two ago when I piled it all up in one spot, because now I was effectively undoing all that work. Oh well. I sorted everything into three piles: my stuff, my wife’s stuff, and garbage. The garbage piled turned out to be the biggest of the bunch. We appare...
Now at times, it may seem like my shop progress is going ahead kind of willy nilly, with no plan, which is anything but the truth. It may not be a FIRM plan, or even a GOOD plan, but I DO have a plan… Now this plan is flexible, within certain limits of reason. Since I am limited by space, and the amount of tools, equipment, and supplies I am dealing with, for a broad range of projects, not just woodworking… Now mind you, many of the steps in this plan are dependent upon OTHE...

What’s happening in the shop for May 27, 2010. Finishing Morris’ Accent wall unit. I’ll start a couple batmobile sytle car beds. For missed video and building pictures see my Current Projects link at wwbeds.com or poggyskids.com. Watch us live:
I needed a saw for doing simple cuts on my soon-to-be workbench, like cutting the ends of the benchtop even, or cutting the bottoms of the legs post-glueup. My ryoba is the best saw in the universe but is not really beefy enough to do larger jobs. I’m seriously considering getting one of those big lumberjacky pull saws. But in the meantime, a cheap hardware store saw will do. The one I got (for $10) is Japanese, apparently, but is a push saw. It’s got a fine classic look to ...
I am really happy with the way things have come together on my latest project, The table saw island. Today I got the torsion box structure in place. After taking these pictures I cut the top of the torsion box, but it needs to be trimmed some more to fit right. I made an attempt to cut it out and put it in place but ran out of time for tonight, left there at 8:45 and it’s a 45min drive home. In one of the pictures you will see what I came up with for the dust collection to the saw. If...
I had a few very wide Walnut boards that had been sitting around for the last 8 years or so, and I decided I need to make my son a dresser for his clothes..problem was..the wide boards were 8/4, 20” wide, so I shot Rob (Aka SoCal) a e mail asking if he could help me resaw these 3 boards in half, of course Rob told me to come on over.. he Lives about 45 minutes away from me So Today I loaded up the 3 planks, mapquested Robs address and headed on out, Now..I’m going to tell you ...
