I decided not to hold my cards to close to my chest, as Scott mentioned. I decided to show what I’ve been doing the last couple of days. I couldn’t resist doing some chiseling on this table. That’s the reason I did a downward cloud lift on the aprons, in order to fit in a carving. One down, three to go. This is about 4 hours of chiseling. A little more touching up, & it’ll ready for the finish.
Wood Joinery ....as told by one who was a misfit all his-elfin-self, till one day while out walking in the forest of dark woods gathering branch wood, he ran into the spirit of an ‘old timer’ who saw into the recesses of this one’s heart, and from that day forth i have never left the deep woods of wood joinery…. Having an imagination that is vivid and livid with complete color scale has at times been both a curse and a blessing, till one day getting tired of shif...
In some of the other posts in this series, Bob Babcock and I were bouncing around ideas about making this bench portable. I toyed with this and after coming up with some relatively complex ways to make the top removable, the obvious (or so I think) approach dawned on me. The simple solution is to widen the crosspiece at the top of the leg assembly by 2 inches. Widening the bottom two supports that are part of the bench top assembly is also required. This allows for 4 to 6 bolts to be used ...
Slab Wood Tales ....in the working of the wood, the stories of those who came before me, are revealed as enlightened nuggets of wisdom, where ‘ancient ones’ give thanks by offering to tell me their tales…. So today I thought I would travel some ground….or is that lay some ground work here and post some pictures. I’m going to throw in a plug here and say thanks to Zooomr for all their work that they have done, and have made available to all. Using this site ...
Not much to say. Time to put the old PC698 up forsale! Many mistakes, much fun. Most importantly, I’ve got a great router table that I made myself!
Well, after being excited, then not, then excited, then not, and then excited, and then not, for the past 3 weeks, today I was told that a check is in the mail for the deposit money for the Custom Steak Knife sets I will be making. So, I’m officially at “excited” again. I posted a few days ago about the knife/scrimshaw samples being sent here: http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/decoustudio/blog/2470 Now, I just wanted to follow up, and post that I did get the order today....

I just noticed at the bottom of the page that we now have 400 screens worth of projects, blogs and forum entries. How many have you read? Last night I noticed that 3 minutes ago was the oldest comment on the first page. Things sure get off the first page fast. Congratulations to Martin and us all. 11988 entries coming up on 12,000
Thank you to all of you for your kind welcomes to this page I am from down under yes Australia, I am new to woodwork and of coarse I am strictly ammeter hobbyist so far as I have a great deal to learn yet. I have a back ground in engineering so this helps to bridge the gap a little. I have just bought a legacy mill and am having great fun so far with it and I already have had help from a member on here thank you to him. I would like to buy the legacy design kit but it is too expensive for me...
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 ...
