Just a couple pictures of my version of TWW cutting boards. They board is made out of walnut and cherry. I thought I finished sanding it last night and wiped it down with mineral spirits to get the dust off. Some excess glue squeeze-out that I missed while sanding/scraping became apparent after I wiped the board down, so I have to work at it a bit more tonight, then its onto putting the finish. I’ll post pics of the finished board once its done.
I put my drawer case together and have the slides in there. There are a couple of spots where the measurements were wonky for some reason, but I got it all squared up where it needs to be squared up. I think I may have cut my dadoes a wee bit too tight, because I had to wrestle with this thing quite a lot. And it is big, so there was some sweating and swearing. I think if I had more experience with this sort of thing, I could’ve planned my assembly attack better, and maybe saved som...
Due to my ignorance with LJ blogging, the next installment is here. So, I’ve got my girlfriend’s permission to start working on our new dining room set. I’ve done a ton of research, and for me, Schroeder hit the nail right on the head. He’s been extremely helpful with suggestions, suggested reading, and tool purchases to make the process go smoother. I will build his table. I’m still researching the chairs, but the Rodel chair is high in the running. I...
I’ve migrated what turns out to be 9Gig or so worth of photos over to my new hosting provider, but unfortunately, the new version and old version direct link URLs are incompatible. I’m not terribly surprised, but I was hoping to avoid the manual fixes many of my blog posts will now require. I’m going to try and fix the Roubo series today, but the other ones will likely take longer. So have patience, and the links should resume working eventually!

The train is back from graphics and completed. Well almost. I am thinking about putting a bell on the front and I need to add the child’s name under the window. Other than that it is finished. After I got it back from graphics, I just reassembled it cut slats and wired the lights. I put a small knob on the headboard to activate a touch sensor. I mounted the control box under the slat cleats, hidden and out of the way. The wire runs under the cleats to the front where it plugs in to ...
Maybe that should be an old age project. Turn (turned) 65 today. Coincidentally, my birthday present is a new mini-lathe. Joyously, according to the tracking software, it was only 25 miles away and on the UPS truck at 5:00 AM. And my wife has stuck with me for 36 years. I am truly a blessed man. Lee
Following the advice of some folks on a turning forum, I roughed out the trunk. I had to avoid gashes left by the car and some knots, but I think I ended up with 4 pretty nice blanks? After turning, I brought the blanks inside and dipped the ends in wax… I’ll come back to them in a few weeks… stay tuned!
