Ok, so I have not been blogging yet. But, it seems as good as time as any. Of course, this would be better if it was like Star Trek, and the computer could capture all of this for me. So, I have finished my 2006 projects, and am about to begin those for 2007. First on my list is an Artist painting table. This will be built of Oak, and take a few weeks to finish. (Note to self, work faster). The next project is undecided. Do I start on those Adirondack chairs, or maybe some of the s...
Today was one of those real discouraging days in the shop. I’ve been working on a small box for a friend. I am showing it as a work-in-progress here. I know I’ve been dragging my feet a little but I’ve had a few disruptions. Here’s my list of excuses.1. Purchased a new car.2. Sold an older car.3. Installed MS Vista and had all sorts of teething problems – still sorting out a few.5. Installed MS Office 2007 – no problems, love the program improvements.6. ...
Dear Sir, We are very sorry to hear that our first generation custom made six-in-one screwdriver did not live up to your screw driving expectations of being able to drive nearly as many screws as the Titanic made Trans-Atlantic voyages. We take our product design and customer service very seriously, and have sacked everyone involved with the first product line. At considerable time and expense we have completely retooled our product line and would like to offer you a replacement fro...
I was home alone for the weekend and, as I am wont to do, decided to take advantage of the time to “Get Stuff Done.” Saturday:Trip to the lumberyard Built a platform to level space for a shed Assembled the shed which, contrary to what Rubbermaid claimed on theirwebsite did not take 90 minutes but more like six hours. (Heck, it took 30minutes just to peel the protective backing off of the pieces of plasticthat make the windows in the doors of the darned thing. Finally fini...
Hi Folks, I’ve been off the blog for the past few very busy days, something about an infestation of mice in our RV. Problem now solved so I can get back to more pressing things. I am having a new fence put in around our place with a double 10 ft. gate for the RV. I would like to put a Brick Post with an appropriate cap on each side of this entry. I’ve never done very much of this sort of work and I like the idea of a challenge. Would anyone be able to tell me where I might find so...

Don’t forget to post some comments there if you like the article ;) Once again, congratulations to Popular Woodworking and the entire LumberJocks community!
McCulloch Super 33 In writing this story about “Slabbin’ at Wood’, I have thought to include stories on: 1. Safety a) ....and you will hear me talking off safety till you probably get sick of the ‘safety’ word. However with and when working with chainsaws, I am a believer that safety first on the job, will likewise take you home safely at last! b) ....I was also taught that the average audience when being talked to will need to hear the point you are m...

This is where things start getting exciting! MIDI Workstation After a couple of weekends of work, here is where I’m at. I use the Veritas 32 System to build the lower cabinets based on these designs. Design Top I built the top with this plan. MIDI Workstation Front Very detailed plans, eh?!? The one thing I wish I did a better job on is scale. The space I have designed this desk for is roughly 3′ by 6′. The overall size of the project is 2′ by 5.5′. In retrosp...
Well I must say that I am lucky to have a woman in my life willing to give up the garage space to allow me to really set up a shop. Living in the Northern Pittsburgh area of Pennsylvania has it perks, and like all places, it’s down sides. This is the first in a series of how I convert my garage spaces into a functional shop for me to produce my work without causing problems if and when we would decide to move. My area like a lot of others has it’s dynamic swings with temperatur...
