Hello All, I think that this is my favorite chapter thus far. While I was working today, I sort of let the ideas rattle around in my noggin all day. When I finally got home and wrote them down, the little bits of ideas seemed to go really well together. Henry Wood Chapter 5 http://su.pr/9YrbRX Thanks, Brian p.s. I am going to start working on a matte board cutting/photograpy table on Tuesday. First step will be to go buy some wood for the legs, and Tuesday will be my fir...

It was a very nice day yesterday. Although there was no snow on the ground, my practical side got the best of me and I rationalized that it was far better to drive on dry pavement than in the snow and ice. The Mustang has been parked and won’t see the road until the spring thaw, but even with a more practical vehicle, it was still better to be safe this way than have the romanticism of a white Christmas. When I awoke this morning, there seems to be a hint of a dusting of snow on the ...
We all have those projects in woodworking that we design, build, and gloat over when we complete them. And we have those projects are just truely awful.

Lumber is bought, a new router bit or machinery is obtained. The project starts out nicely and everything i...
Before I start this I want to warn all left-brainers out there to bypass this one. If you choose to read it and it does not sit well with you, then show me respect by leaving this be. It will be difficult enough to express this in words but I am going to try. Brevity shall be lost here…. According to scientists all matter is inter-connected. Now I am not one of the theoretical types who can spout figures and facts and dates. I blunder along experiencing beauty and mystery and tr...
I feel so disgusted with myself, just three weeks ago I was on here publicly declaring my involvement with a router plane, now the despicable creature that I am my attention has turned to a mortising attachment for the drill press… And wow do I like the mortising attachment; I brought my mortising chisel, gooseneck chisel and my trusty red oak mallet to class today figuring I would be spending my time chiseling out the mortises for the cross members to my stool. Ryan stopped by and ...

I started finishing the bottom of a Oak bowl that was 10” round. When the tool decided to grab the wood and it proceeded to fly off of the lathe. I was sure glad to be standing to the side when it happened. The only thing that happened to me was a small slice on the fingure. The bowl on other hand suffered far more than I did. TOTAL WASTE!! But I’m glad it wasn’t me or my face. I was wearing my face shield at the time, but the with the weight of the bowl, I don’t k...
