Man oh man – there are tons of ways that the seat of a piece of furniture can be prepared. I just don’t have time to go into all of them. If you have questions about yours, feel free to ask. I’ll give some pretty decent details about mine though. I’ll say something else before we go too far because we are a woodworking community, They don’t make em like they used to. However, this frame is pretty good for having been constructed in the last 10 years or so. ...
I cleaned up my solid model and created a 5 page set of shop drawings….

Spring has sprung and I’m breaking down large pieces into small pieces for my standing had tool cabinet. The winter was not kind with temperatures, so this is really the beginning of the serious work on the thing. I’m cutting 8/4 slabs with a Skill Saw, supported from underneath on sawhorses, and then using the band saw to get them near final dimensions and letting them sit for a while to acclimate in the shop. The back table pictured has several rails and stiles on it, the top f...
Please Consider Checking Out My Website: MonkWerks.org Dear Diary, This morning I awoke to a beautiful Saturday morning with the birds chirping and the sun shining, and I was reinvigorated and ready to tackle a new woodworking project.

That's always a feeling of relief for me, as more times than not I am coming from dealing with the nerves that accompany submitting to the magazines. Yesterday was no exception.While I still have some writing to do on the ornaments that I showed yesterday, I wanted to take a day that was a bit 'unstructured&...
Went through the inventory the other night. Not much left from that old bed frame. One side rail was PLYWOOD and soaked. Maybe next time. The other rail was something….different. Looked almost like a glue-lam board….LOT of plys. Well, maybe a rip here, a cross cut there, and I can build a frame? Ripped the board right down the middle.
