Slide Together & Apart Bookcase This bookcase was completed in early February, 2008 and accomplished a number of objectives: 1. I finally put to use some oak boards that I brought to Connecticut from Minnesota 30 years ago.2. I was able to reuse some boards taken out of a stereo cabinet that I had modified.3. I verified Jerry Work’s claims concerning the Festool dovetail bits (They don’t need to have a rabbet cut before going into wood at full depth).4. I created ...
Well, I guess with my first blog entry I kind of set a precedence of being a scrounger so we’ll continue with a little project I made for the garden.Years ago I was given a huge cherry log. At 34” in diameter and 10’ long it was quite a monster setting in the driveway but as with all woodworkers I had visions of a beautiful piece of furniture when the time came. Sawing it up with the chainsaw was a quite chore and a feat in itself but we manage to get some beautiful wood. ...
Well after about four months I finely get a chance to make use of my shop. I have begun to work on my jewelry box once again. I started in january and got distracted by the huge shop renovation. Well here it is. I believe that it turned out better than expected. This was my fist attempt at veneering and I think that I did very well. It turned out great. I fist took a peice of poplar and milled it flat and then used two peices of 1/4 ply to work as calls and put about ten diffrent types of cla...
A few modifications have been made to the project. The plan is laid out. So we started off by cutting the side panels for the columns we’ve added. I know you didn’t see columns in the pictures from before but that is the main addition besides lengthening the lower cabinet to accommodate for more table space. The panels are cut and everything is as square as possible. Most of the wood was delivered bent so we’ll have to do some fidgeting a little later. Ok we’ve also us...
My daughter who is 10 this month, has a ton of Webkinz and a while ago she asked me to make her something that she could put all of them on. So I was perusing a magazine that had plans for a crown molding shelf(mantel) and it looks really elegant and seemed like it would be fun, quick and easy to make. So I checked around and found I had enough scrap, and only had to buy a heyhole bit for my router(darn :) ).
I’d like to invite you to a brief tour of Brezno – nice small town in the heart of Slovakia where I’m living now. Let’s see what Wikipedia has to say about Brezno’s history: “The place has been inhabited since prehistoric times, but the current town arose from an old Slovak settlement, next to which newly arrived German miners erected a typical square market in the early 13th century. The first written evidence of the town’s existence is dat...
Another short Blog entry to post a concept sketch of a President Barak Obama Walking Cane. This cane design has been inspired by several historical examples of Election and Political Figure “Bust Top” collector walking canes. I have another design I’m working on the concept sketch for with an “Abraham Lincoln Bust Top” walking cane, and he’s deceased, and so that can not be determined as “politics”, just art. Ha. thanks for looking,Mark ...

I should refer to this entry as “more work than I had anticipated”... I put in close to an 8hr day today and about all that I have to show for it is aprons around the mdf, a bit of new knowledge, and a few mistakes. I will run through this step by step. Again for the most part this is a keep it simple bench. There are other ways of doing most everything here. I am just going to lay out my method here. The first hurdle of the day was figuring out how to deal with my rough...
My first blog was a “challenge” to you all to choose from three seperate projects which to report on next…I “learned”, at lumberjocks, ALL projects carry equal interest :-)...although, at least a few of you actually told me the model house was a “little more” of interest… I just posted a few more pictures I found of this project and will “hopefully” be able to tell a little about why I “built it” and where that project...
