Just a short one since I’ve only made slight progress. I’m happy with the re-cut of the long dog holes though – free handed those and they came out real nice. Probly due to all the practice! See the pics below in the comments. Shipwright had to fix them for me :) Looks like I’ll be cutting the dog holes once again so they match the bottom and top plywood. question is which to match them to if they are different??? ooooh boy! Addenum So after my faux pas the other...

I’m pretty gifted. I probably say that with some conceit, because I’m pretty conceited too, but I still have reason to believe it’s true. I’m good at a lot of things, and I’ve had any number of personality issues because I approach the world at a high enough level that people have trouble keeping up with me. One of the things that reading LumberJocks is doing is teaching me humility. And it’s doing this in two ways. To me, there are two types of artis...
Today was a goof-off day. I grabbed my handplane hunting pack, iPod and my son and I headed out to the local flea market. Unfortunately, no new tools were to be had today. We stopped at a few garage sales and ran across a guy selling a trailer of 5/4 rough redwood. I had been thinking about building some Redwood Adirondack Chairs for my patio. But, there was enough lumber in the trailer that storage in the garage of my suburban home would be a challenge (that and the explaining it to the ...
Wood Scripted Beauty ....’as a man thinks so is he’, and so we start to think till one day we realize that we have become what we thought…. —-therefore, one might say that it is profitable in all things, to think on those things which are for the betterment of ones body, soul and spirit…. —-now one can go deeper into the heart of the matter by peeling back the outer shell of thinking, till one is found in the inner workings of seeing, and from this...
What Time Is It? On some air bases, the Air Force is on one side of the field and civilian aircraft use the other side of the field, with the control tower in the middle. One day the tower received a call from an aircraft asking, “What time is it?” The tower responded, “Who is calling?” The aircraft replied, “What difference does it make?” The tower replied, “It makes a lot of difference. If it is an American Airlines flight, it is 3 oR...
I’ve waited and waited…I’ve even questioned, Martin and JockMike…and low and behold it has finally arrived! My Popular Woodworking magazine! Now I can proudly display it on the project that I made in order to receive it. Thanks Popular Woodworking and LumberJocks!
...I hope it is not a freight train! Finally after a little over three months of work, and way too much stress, it looks like I can see the light at the end of the tunnel on the bookshelf project. This is really good. It looks like we are going to install next Wednesday. I should be done with the polyurethane by Monday night. Hey, just in time for things to get good and hard before the installation. Now, the finishing is going good. Let’s just hope the the installation goes smo...
Had some comments to my first attempt at becoming a “blogger”.....seems like fun, but I think I’d rather be “making saw dust” MORE TO FOLLOW.
Howdy y’all. Well it’s been a few weeks since the last update so here it is. The garage/woodshop has not progressed much due to family commitments. However, over the last week I have managed to tune up my budget B&D table saw. The alignment was way off from the miter slots and the blade wobble was excessive. After attending a wood expo in Seattle I got to see what a ‘real’ table saw and blade looks like…..and I don’t mean the next B&D model up!...
