chop for the vise here is the base finally on going to move on to a couple of projects for the time being then come back to do the face vise.
Just a small teaser or two… What do you think? Next project… but what is the project..?? Second… Something for those of us who are of the same age???If you know my age, you will have an advantage..
This project is half finished – Literally I mean. I figured since I’ll be working on the drawers, and the toolcart is in the basement it’ll get dirty, and oily finger marks might penetrate the wood and no sanding in the world will take those out, so I decided to finish the cabinet and protect it from the ‘elements’ around…. and boy did I get struck out by one of those elements… but more about that later. And so I gave the cabinet a good sanding wit...
It is nice to start making some progress on the pulpit. Its easy for me to get sidetracked and lose interest in a project, especially when I am unsure about how to do a certain procedure. There are many ways to accomplish a woodworking project, probably as may different ways as there are woodworkers. I guess my big slow down was that I was unsure how I wanted to go about making the arches and the corner details. I like to have a picture in my mind before I start but, sometimes coming u...
I’ve been looking to equip my shop with “hand powered” tools. So when I saw this, It was love at first sight. I had it shipped home, and sadly, It arrived with the frame broken in two. After filling a claim with the shipping company, I was not happy with their offer to refund my money “on further inspection” (meaning give it to them and await payment)—-no thank you. I will now have it “welded” by a local machine shop. 1) As it arived. A beaut...

So here is the next phase in the early life of a box. After straight lining one of the boards and cutting to a rough length for my project, I split the board in half. I usually go for 3/8 or a little larger but since these boards were already surfaced I couldn’t make them thicker. LOL. I ended up a little proud of 5/16 thick. I know a lot of people make there boxes 3/4 thick but this way works better for me. I will add to the interior once the lid is sized and everything is...
As I mentioned at the beginning of this, these two boxes will be for my wife and daughter. Today I was able to get back to working on them and did a little carving on the lids. If you would like to see more about how I do my epoxy inlays you can check it out at http://lumberjocks.com/JoeyG/blog/26663. I am not going into a lot of detail, since most of it is covered there. I just wanted to share the pictures of the progress and keep this as up to date as possible. You will notice that I...
Well as I promised last week I certainly have projects to post this week. I have been busy at milling some wood and putting it to use at the lathe. I actually posted 3 projects in a row earlier. My daughter joined me in the shop yesterday to work on pens for her Kindergarten teachers. I spent a few days going through my wood that I have had drying for a bit now and was able to cut pieces down for numerous ornaments for my coworkers and some pens for others I had great ...
