Just a little update on the picture frame. i got the hickory today and have planned out all of my cuts. I am waiting until this weekend when i am supposed to get a table saw until i do any work. i have planned out the finish to. it looks like from my test piece the finish that got both piece the closest was Arm-R-Seal. I wanted to use a water based but i really didn’t like the look so oil is the way to go. hoping to have the table saw tuned up and a router table build onto it by next Tu...

I just joined Lumberjocks a few days ago and I’d like to extend a “thank you” to the many people who’ve already welcomed me here. This will be my maiden journey into wood working and it’s comforting to know that there is a mature, respectful and experienced community to collaborate with. Thank you all for making me feel welcome. Now, off to buy some tools!
I thought that I would write this blog as encouragement for those of us who are not MASTERS of the craft. I started woodworking in the winter of 2003. My only background in the craft was watching New Yankee Workshop since its inception and dreaming of being able to DO THAT SOMEDAY. Well the SOMEDAY finally came when I was offered a very nice retirement package form Verizon Telephone for whom I had toiled for Thirty-three (33) years in Southern California. We, my darling wife of 37 years...

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.
