Hi Guys. I just uploaded a new video. Resizable octagon column part6. Making the crown molding.In this video I will show you how I made the crown molding for my resizable octagon column. This is a completely different approach than the base molding so be sure to check it out.http://youtu.be/ilH9ltb5Dxs
In the My Projects section I posted the completion of a rustic headphones rack for my ancient audio-technica AT-703 headphones. Since that post I added another coat of Danish oil and a final finish of The Original Formula Johnson Paste Wax. Here is what it looks like without the headphones: ...and with the headphones: And here is a view of the main workstation area of the office, showing the rack in place: This was a rewarding build, true to my scratch-building nature ...
Final finishing up of the woodworking part of this project! I attach the hutch to the subframe, and then that assembly to the top. I also make the interior back and the back of the hutch. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! http://youtu.be/0wOl6AJZw9w
Parqués is a Board Game peculiar to Colombia, although it has variations around the world, in the UK it is Ludo, elsewhere I don’t know. The problem is that unless you want to buy something that you would need a microscope to see, they are damned expensive…well by our standards, and I have now lived here long enough to believe in local values so with the family coming for Semana Santa / Easter, I decided I would try to make one, it’s not hard,. just time consuming. I ...
Hi everyone! I’ve been somewhat out of radio contact due to pressing work for my degree and working on a business startup…. Between then (when was the last post?) and now, the entire piece was constructed in Solidworks, had the bugs refined out (mostly avoiding work overcomplication and basic logistics), ripped apart and reconstructed. Very little has changed from the original dimensions and layout. The recipient of the largest changes were the doors in terms of the muntin/mull...
Aside from this being the second longest build on LJ’s next to Stef’s workbench build, I have finally started back to work on this cabinet. We last left off with me finding out that I need to learn front from back. The rabbets cut for the back were actually done on the front of the top and bottom panels. After a year and a half of pretending the problem would fix it’s self I finally ripped the offending section off and glued up a new strip of wood. Cut a couple new dov...
Rainy weekends. Working weekends. Family events. I’m definitely not complaining about family events, but the others can just go away thank you very much. In my first entry on this blog, I showed some images of my bathroom countertop. I had just taken the camps off when I received some excellent advice from my friend Gary. Yup, he said “If you glue that top to a plywood substrate, the substrate will be relatively stable while the surface expands and contracts.” Yup. ...

Anyone know when the 2015 Mallet Swap begins? Would like to get in on the action this year.Regards
I wanted to build a new cart that took better advantage of the space underneath my benchtop drill press. The one I had been using was a scavenged find. It looks like there are a 5 drawers, but it’s actually 3. They’re made from 3/4” material, they’re narrow and deep, and don’t have full extension slides, so they don’t function well for small parts. The one I built is a little lower, wider, and has full extension slides so I can get to everything in the...
