My youngest grandson (12 y/o) got his first deer today. It was a doe but they eat better than horns. My problem is this…...He wore his hunting clothes, bright orange from head to toes, all the way from College Station, TX to Mcmillan, Texas in deep south Texas, maybe 200 miles. He ate breakfast in a restaurant in hunter orange top to bottom. They went to a private ranch, climbed up into a tower blind. Big box 25’ in the air wearing his orange. Killed his deer and they went ho...
Today the box for the box swap came in. Well crafted and pretty wood (looks like oak) but the damn Post Office had the box for 14 days (sent priority) and mangled the outside and damaged the wooden box. I can repair it but there is no excuse for this. The sender should report it to the P.O. and collect on the automatic insurance that comes with priority. Take a look at the pics. And if the sender sees this, contact me, please.

LJackson asked for a picture after removing the table from the bath and before I sanded it. This part of the table sat for a day before I got around to sanding it, so it had a lot of surface rust. This section was rusted the worst and has some slight pitting in it.
Rasp handles at the Drill Press I have a few rasps that were in need of handles. If I owned a lathe I would have quickly turned a few handles, but unfortunately I do not. I had really good luck turning drawer pulls at the drill press using a few rasps, so I thought I could use the same process to make a few handles. Because the handles are longer than the drawer pulls that I made in the past, I had to modify the process a little. I used my grinder to make a metal point for the wood to turn...
Last night I grabbed some particle board that I have in the shop and made a bending jig for the chair back. The chairs are for the table I made for our church. Although I’m glad I had the particle board to use instead of ‘good’ plywood, I got really frustrated with my band saw while cutting out the bending form. Lately I’ve been getting along with my bandsaw but this was miserable. I cut the curve out of two boards and the switched to my jig saw because it̵...
Hello everyone. I have a less than one year old Morgan Milwaukee 10” woodworking vise I purchased from Gramercy tools. It is built like a tank and wasn’t cheap. Lately when I apply pressure when working on a project, the vise suddenly burst open and loses it grip on work piece? Also, lately,the vise will not grab the workpiece unless you fool with it. Are these two phemomena related. Any insight into what is causing this grip failure?? Thx. Chris
Started building a new Router Table after I tipped over my store bought one. So far I’ve built the table top from (2) sheets of 3/4 MDF I glued together. The I routed channels for t-tracks, a Jessem Router raiser purchased from Rockler, and a fence system from Woodpecker. I bought the Ultimate Fence system with the intent of expanding it to a 48” fence. The part of this build is to design the cabinet with dust collection port. I’m thinking of including a slidin...
There is no better feeling in the world than wrapping up a project. Saying to yourself: Enough. They’re done. I can do no better than this. Go out into the world and hold people up. Feels good. The Northwest Woodworking Studio
Roaming through an estate sale last weekend. I came across a few books to add to my library. When I went to check out, the manager asked me: “How does $12 sound?” I thanked him, smiled and headed to the house to start reading.
