I finally have it stained. Been working on this one for 3 weeks. 1/2 hour here, 1/2 hour there, etc. I HATE working like that , BUT, we do what we have to do ! This cabinet stands 46” high, is 18” deep x 26” wide. It has 1 drawer at top, 2 pull out serving trays, and the bottom behind the window is storage. I used an old house door as the main frame of sides. Cleaning the old paint and stain almost took longer than the construction. I did leave some flakes of...
I saw these just today and thought they were pretty cool. Not overly expensive, either. I think this one’s my favorite: Looks like the woods they use are red wing celtis, ebony, maple and guaiaco. I’d love to know how they’re finished.
Not exactly woodworking, but close enough. #9: More shop progress. storage bins, and router bit storage.
Not a lot to talk about here today, just a couple of deviations from the plan, due to wanting to get the shop up and going prior to getting the clamshell cabinets done. I have added a short shelf below the 6’ shelf that my hand held stuff is on for storage of my measuring and marking tools, as well as my various pnuematic fasteners, and other boxes of stuff. The small parts bins have gotten wall mounted, as have the router bit cabinets. I found I have been amassing a large selection of ...
This picture shows a possible solution to attaching my router table top to my table saw. The aluminum rail attaches to the saw and the top attaches to the rail. I can’t take credit for the idea, that goes to LJ joeE. Thanks joeE.
Well it has been a long time since I added an entry to my blog so I thought that I would continue updating my progress on the two shaker end tables I am building. Now that I have a biscuit joiner and a dovetail jig I was able to make the drawers and have been doin pretty good. I have changed the design so I can cover up the end grain as best I could and decided to put on a walnut bread-board edge.The drawer sides and back have to put the pins in the front still and mill the grove for the bott...
I’ve been working on this one a while, its my wifes jewelry cabinet.

I like to tease Mike (jockmike2) that he was worried about losing a student when I moved to a scroll saw project. When I showed him the progress on my scroll saw box, he gave me a piece of Ash that he cut from his firewood. A good deal of bark was on the piece and he suggested I try my hand at a bowl with a natural edge. This is my progress so far on this project. This piece was a little rough on the side opposite the bark side. I ran a chainsaw disk mounted on the angle grinder over it to...
Everyone that knows me knows I am a scroller at heart. In 2008 my wife bought me a Craftsman Scroll Saw for Christmas and I haven’t stopped since then. My Craftsman Scroll saw has provided me a learning experience from which I have learned the art of scrolling, met new friends and mad a couple of dollars. But most of all it has allowed me to give my friends and Family things I have made which have brought joy to them. As far as the learning experience goes,....I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER P...
Well I finally got some pictures from inside the can. Being the cheapskate that I am, found a factory refurbished digital camera to take my pictures. Rather then getting the camera I previously told you about at Big Lots. Hey! I save $10 even with shipping from tigerdirect.com. So, without dragging this on forever, here are the latest photos from outside and inside the can. As you can see this is the outside, which is soon to be painted a lighter or reflective color to help reflect radi...
