I’m looking for a couple of pieces that are 1/2” thick and large enough to use on a 24” diameter table.
Share the Love This modern sofa table was built for donation to a charity fundraising auction. This slideshow was played to generate more interest in the table by highlighting the construction process. Generating more interest generates more money for the charity. The auction was a bit disappointing overall, but my table brought in the more money than anything else. Funds raised at the auction help support programs for people with developmental disabilities. The winning bidder ask...

Grandkids. Ain’t it funny how that one word can have such an effect on your woodowrking hobby? I went into this evening with one granddaughter and one big project to complete before the end of summer. With an annoucement, tonight from my daughter, I now have two projects to complete by summer’s end. I had already committed to building a twin-sized Pencil-Post Bed for my granddaughter, Zoe, for her birthday in July. I’m now committed to a cradle by the middle of September. Ma...
Our home yard tree, a beautiful silver maple, estimated by many to be nearly a century old: I don’t have a photo of the heavy wet snow that brought one-quarter of it crashing to the ground, but the after-math when calling ‘the tree man’ is clear: And the work load is rather daunting, but I’m working daily to salvage and process as much as I can store. My tools are a small electric chainsaw, a Laguna bandsaw, and one very sore back: My only regret ...

Mike spoke up first. “Hey buddy, I am going to need you to look around your office.” Shrugging he added, “or what’s left of it.” Henry set the bottle by the sink and said, “Yeah, I suppose we should go, let’s get to it.” They took Mikes squad car and pulled up behind the fire chief’s vehicle. There were still a few gawkers, gawking outside. The third floor windows of Henry’s office were broken out and the bricks were charred half way up the 4th floor. It looks like the firefight...
Once I have the 3 lamination blanks cut to width I thickness sand the strips to reach the final dimension. I have tried using my planer, but when the strips get this thin it is easy to end up with damage. I set my ShopSmith up as a disc sander and use a thicknessing jig. I first showed the use of this in a previous blog. There was some interest in a more detailed description so here it is. Here is the setup. Basically it is a 3 1/2 inch tall bullnosed block clamped to the fence. The...
So for several years I have worked out of my grandfathers old shop and partially out of my garage. Well, about 8 months ago, my wife and I moved to a house with a three car garage and I finally had the space to make a dedicated shop area. Some of you are probably wondering…”you moved there 8 months ago and your shops not set up yet????”...and your right, it should have been done by now. No excuses, but it’s amazing how things pile up. So, with out further delay I...
