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...

You will find them under the heading “Current Events” in the navigation bar. I still do remodeling and my latest remodel project is posted under the same “Current Events.” It is not always just about woodworking, but it is always about design ...

Well last week I was on-call at work and it was a hell week. So I got to take a full day off as a comp day. YAY!! So I have the stiles and rails cut as well as the shelves(though they aren’t cut to finished length yet.) Today I focused on notching the stiles as needed and constructing the frames. Having gone through this process now, I have some thoughts to share with those who may be interested in trying this out themselves. 1. Lay out your stiles and rails and figure out whic...
Well I took the counter top back out to the driveway today to glue the two pieces together. (See previous Blog in this series) I set up the Corian on my sawhorses in the driveway and pre set all of the clamp that I’d need to hold the pieces while the glue dried.

A piece of maple was put on the edge to keep the pipe clamps from breaking off any pieces on the edge. I t...
